* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Deconstructed with Linh. At first, being an orphan seems like the simple reason he gets to go on all sorts of exciting adventures with the team. Then it's revealed he he had to watch his father get shot in front of his eyes.

* MoneyDearBoy: Denis Leary has said the reason he, Danny Glover, and Ray Liotta did the picture was because they had property they wanted to buy. Filming took so long and got so bad they all started carrying around pictures of that property and looking at them to get them through the shooting.

''Operation Dumbo Drop'' is a 1995 Creator/{{Disney}} live-action film set during the Vietnam war. In it, Capt. T.C. Doyle (Ray Liotta), a hard-nosed Green Beret, is assigned to a local village to keep watch on the Ho Chi Minh trail. There he meets up with with Capt. Sam Cahill (Danny Glover). While the two are out scouting the trail, the Vietcong raid the village, discovering a chocolate bar wrapper, meaning the villagers were harboring American troops. As punishment, they shoot their prized elephant.
