* The scene where Colbert, having spent the entire show insulting Ray's parentage, intelligence, and personal grooming standards, finally manages to get a rise out of him... by telling him he should be more like [[ButtMonkey Trombley]]. Ray immediately stands and shouts "More like Trombley? MORE LIKE TROMBLEY?", and [[FunnyBackgroundEvent all the marines in the area go "ooooh."]]

* A valuable supply truck is abandoned and unsurprisingly looted. To great dishonor and chagrin, it transported the battalion colors, carried into battle since Vietnam. Cpl. Person jumps at the chance to [[DeadpanSnarker sarcastically analyze the move]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RLlwuSJGUQ delivers]] one of his IdiotHero remarks about the higher-ups.
-->'''Ray''': Iím betting that they were thinking that they could just, you know, leave a fully loaded supply truck laying around, just like you could anywhere in America, you know. I mean, you park your unlocked car in [[GangsterLand Detroit or Baltimore]], I mean, your shitís going to be there, guaranteed, when you get back from the day spa with your skin all exfoliated and shit, right. I mean, seriously homes, why would our Iraqi brethren want four hundred pounds of C4, claymores and crates of M-16ís. I mean, it just doesnít make any sense. Oh wait, you know they could be using all that C4 for like a giant Fourth of July celebration.

* And of course, the time that they're ''saved'' by Encino Man's incompetence: when he calls for an artillery strike over subordinates' objections[[note]]on a position so close as to potentially wound or kill himself and his Marines, and against targets that a platoon commander declares to be already destroyed[[/note]] but fails to recognize that he got the coordinates wrong, the fire direction center simply moves on Alpha Company's ''correct'' call for fire.

* Alpha Company is detached to enter a town garrisoned by an Iraqi Republican Guard unit and rescue a captured Marine. During the planning, the commander briefing Captain Patterson points out the various planned routes into the town, code-named Cheetahs, Rhino, Crazy Horse, and Seventh Veil. After a {{Beat}}, the commander explains that during their planning session, his NCOs named all of the routes after their favorite strip clubs.
* A nameless CIA agent drops in with a defecting Iraqi general and a group of [[RagtagBandOfMisfits cobbled-together Iraqi freedom fighters]], declaring an ambitious plan for them to enter and liberate the town at dawn, while also capturing Ali Hassan Almajid, aka Chemical Ali. [[UnspokenPlanGuarantee Naturally]], the Iraqi freedom fighters [[DirtyCoward all desert]] the night before the planned attack.
-->'''CIA Agent''': General Alhamadi's operatives were compromised shortly after entering the town last night. They were executed by Ba'ath party loyalists. Clearly, [[UnderStatement this impacted negatively on the morale of his forces.]]
-->'''Battallion Commander''': [[DeadpanSnarker So your freedom fighters ran, huh?]]
-->'''CIA Agent''': Colonel, our liberation wasn't a cakewalk either. If you remember, there were some grim moments at Valley Forge.
