Headscratchers / Beerfest

  • Hammacher & Schlemmer — really, what good would all those muscles be when it came to drinking beer?
    • If you go by what they say in the movie, those guys are actually the two worst drinkers on the German team.
      Jan: Sounds like you guys fancy yourselves drinkers, huh?
      Rolf: Ja, maybe a little bit, since we just beat the Irish.
      Jan: Well I'll tell you what! Well why don't you pick your best two, Friedrich? 'Cause you just opened up a can of corn.
      Germans: (Much laughing)
      Rolf: Our best two? Ja? You want our best two? How about our worst two? Hammacher! Schlemmer!
    • It would affect how quickly they get drunk, since greater body mass causes you to get drunk slower.
  • Since the English team is seperate from the Scottish, shouldn't they have been wearing St. George's Cross to go along with the Scots' St. Andrew's, rather than the Union Jack?
    • No. We're prouder of being British that the Scottish.
  • How did the Germans get a U-boat into a mountain lake in Colorado(a landlocked state).
    • Presumably, Hammacher and Schlemmer carried it all the way there.
