List of Band of Brothers quotes.

Pvt. Roy Cobb: What are youa lookin' at, Webster? Yeah, that's what I thought, college boy.
2nd Lt. Henry Jones: Are you drunk, trooper?
Pvt. Roy Cobb: Leave me alone.
2nd Lt. Henry Jones: Answer the question.
Pvt. Roy Cobb: Yes, sir, I am drunk, sir. Drunk, sick and tired of fucking patrols, takin' orders...
Sgt. Martin: Hey Cobb, shut up! It's boring, okay?


Nixon: Division has decided to pluck one officer from each regiment who served in the heroic defense of Bastogne and send them back to the States on a thirty day furlough... get him out banging the drum for the war bonds, that kind of thing. Turns out I've been plucked.
Richard Winters: Hey, that's fantastic, Lew. Good for you.
Nixon: Thank you.
Richard Winters: But how does your leaving help me?
Nixon: It doesn't. I'm not going. I've already seen the States, I grew up there. That's why I came to Europe. I just wish they told me a war was going on. Anyway, this thing is wasted on me, but I'm sure we could find an officer somewhere in this battalion that could use a long trip home.


Joe Toye: Hey guys, I'm glad we're going to Europe.
(takes out his knife)
Joe Toye: Hitler gets one of these right across the windpipe, Roosevelt changes Thanksgiving to Joe Toye Day, pays me ten grand a year for the rest of my fucking life.
