* 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.

* There's a lot of background commentary from the Marines, particularly radio traffic, that is hilarious. For example, in the sixth episode, there's a large crash in the background, followed by someone yelling that Manimal dropped a box of grenades, followed by someone else adding that "This is [[WhyWeCantHaveNiceThings why we can't have nice things]]!"
