Original. Soon after the "Not One Step Backward" speech and shooting traitors for trying to leave the boat, and the commissars are shooting anyone who pulls back at all. When you go to get orders from the more experienced officer, after the second MG nest is taken out...
Sgt. Sniper: "We'll be safer down in that building. Don't worry about that commissar, I'll take care of him."
Player: *goes back towards the building*
Commissar: "Die you coward!"
Sgt. Sniper: *blatantly shoots the commissar to keep them from killing you*
When I watched that bit closer to notice that he'd shot the commissar, I about rolled. Great spoofing of the speech.
In this game, ranks and names are generated randomly. This gets egregious where Sgt. Moody will suddenly be commanding a squad of lieutenants.
A bit of black humor in Call Of Duty 3 after Baron gets killed in the second-to-last mission, because he's trying to spot for artillery and refuses to heed warnings to take cover. One of the Polish troops asks what happened to Baron, and another responds "Stupidity!"
3 also has a scene where a Polish soldier asks his commander if it'll be just them against the enemy. "The Canadians will be right behind us," the commander says. To which the soldier replies, "So just us, then."
A small bit of gold from Call of Duty 3:
Sgt. Dixon: "Ok guys, listen up. We're on a top secret mission to get coffee and donuts, problem is, the Germans drank all the coffee and ate all the donuts, so now we gotta go kick their asses."
"As I was sayin', there're only two things the Frenchies are any good at: surrenderin', and kissin' .
