Captain Miller:
You and I are taking a squad over to Neuville on a public relations mission.
Sergeant Horvath:
What, you leading a squad?
Captain Miller:
Some private in the 101st lost three brothers and he's got a ticket home.
Sergeant Horvath:
How come Neuville?
Captain Miller:
Eh, they think he's up there somewhere, part of all those airborne misdrops.
Sergeant Horvath:
It's not gonna be easy finding one particular soldier in the middle of this whole goddamn war.
Captain Miller:
Like finding a needle in a stack of needles.
Sergeant Horvath:
But what about the company?
Captain Miller:
We take the pick of the litter and the rest get folded into Baker.
Sergeant Horvath:
Jesus Christ. They took away your company?
Captain Miller:
Wasn't my company, it was the Army's. So they told me, anyway. Give me Reiben on BAR, Jackson, Wade, Beasley, and Caparzo.
Sergeant Horvath:
Beasley's dead.
Captain Miller:
All right, Mellish then. We got anybody speaks French?
Sergeant Horvath:
Not that I know of.
Captain Miller:
What about Talbot?
Sergeant Horvath:
This morning.
Captain Miller:
Oh... all right. I'm gonna try to dig up another interpreter. Assemble at battalion motor pool on the beach.
Sergeant Horvath:
Yes, sir. Listen up...
Private Caparzo:
What are we gonna do?
Sergeant Horvath:
What?
Private Caparzo:
What are we gonna do?
Sergeant Horvath:
You're goin' home wrapped in an American flag with a hunk of cheese in your ass, Caparzo, you smart-ass! Now listen up...
Private Reiben:
I thought you liked it in the ass.
Sergeant Horvath:
What?
Private Reiben:
I thought you liked it in the ass!

You and I are taking a squad
over to Neuville
on a public-relations mission.
You leading a squad?
Some private in the 101 st
lost three brothers,
and he's got a ticket home.
How come Neuville?
They think he's up there somewhere,
part of all those airborne misdrops.
It's not gonna be easy
finding one particular soldier
in the middle of this
whole goddamn war.
Like finding a needle
in a stack of needles.
But what about the company?
We take the pick of the litter
and the rest get folded into Baker.
Jesus Christ.
They took away your company?
It wasn't my company. It was
the Army's. So they told me, anyway.
Give me Reiben on BAR, Jackson,
Wade, Beasley and Caparzo.
Beasley's dead.
All right, Mellish, then.
We got anybody speaks French?
-Not that I know of.
-What about Talbot?
-This morning.
-Oh. All right.
I'm gonna go try to dig up
another interpreter.
Assemble at battalion motor pool
on the beach.
Yes, sir.
-Sarge, what we gonna do?
-Okay, listen up...
-What?
-What are we gonna do?
You're going home wrapped
in an American flag
with a hunk of cheese
in your ass, Caparzo, you smart ass.
-Now, listen up.
-I thought you liked it in the ass.
-What?
-I thought you liked it in the ass.
Attention!
As you were.
I'm looking
for Corporal Upham, Timothy E.
Yes, sir. I'm Upham, sir.
I understand you speak
French and German.
-Yes, sir.
-How's your accent?
Just a slight one in French,
but my German's clean.
-Has a touch of Bavarian, sir.
-Very good.
You've been reassigned to me.
Grab your gear.
-We're going to a place called Neuville.
-Yes, sir.
-When was this updated?
-Updated as of 0830 hour this morning.
-Sir...
-This is the 1 2th SS Panzer.
These are the two axes
that advance south.
-Sir, there are Germans in Neuville.
-There are artillery up here, sir.
-That's what I understand. Corporal.
-Yes, sir.
Sir, there are a lot
of Germans in Neuville.
You have a problem with that, Corporal?
No, sir. Just if you consider
I've never been in combat, sir.
I make maps and I translate.
And that's...
I need someone who speaks
French and German.
-Yes, sir.
-My two guys were killed.
Yes, sir. It's just that I haven't
held a weapon since basic training, sir.
Did you fire the weapon
in basic training?
Yes, sir.
-Well, then, get your gear.
-Yes, sir.
Sir, may I bring...
May I bring my typewriter, sir?
Yes, sir.
Thank you very much, sir.
-That a souvenir?
-No, sir.
Take your time, Corporal.
You should look
on the bright side of things, Corporal.
Yes, sir.
For one thing,
you don't need to carry those.
-You'll need that.
-I'll need that, sir. Yes, sir.
