Band of Brothers (TV Mini-Series 2001) Poster

Tim Matthews: Alex M. Penkala Jr.



  • Alex Penkala : Joe got hit in the arm? New Year's Eve gift from the Luftwaffe.

    Ken Webb : Have a lot of you guys been injured?

    Sgt. Martin : It's called "wounded," Peanut. "Injured" is when you fall out of a tree or something.

    Warren Muck : Don't worry, there so much crap flying around, you're bound to get dinged sometime. Almost every one of these guys got hit at least once. Except for Ally, he's a two-timer. He landed on broken glass in Normandy, and got peppered by a potato masher. Now, Bull... he got a piece of exploding tank in Holland. Now George Luz here... has never been hit. You're one lucky bastard.

    George Luz : Takes one to know one, Skip.

    Warren Muck : Huh, considered us blessed. Now Leibgott, the skinny little guy? He got pinged in the neck in Holland. And right next to him, the other skinny little guy, that's Popeye. He got shot in his scrawny little butt in Normandy. And, uh, Buck got shot in his rather large butt in Holland.

    Alex Penkala : Yeah, kind of an Easy Company tradition, getting shot in the ass.

    Warren Muck : Hey, even First Sergeant Lipton there, he got a couple of pieces of a tank shell burst in Carentan. One chunk in the face, the other chunk nearly took out his nuts.

    Bill Guarnere : How are those nuts, Sarge?

    Carwood Lipton : They're doing fine, Bill. Nice of you to ask.

  • Alex Penkala : [about Buck]  Don't do anything stupid? Who the hell is he talking to? A bunch of morons who volunteered to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. Can you get any more stupid that that?

    George Luz : Probably not.

  • Alex Penkala : [Penkala has been hit during an artillery barrage]  MEDIC!

    Sgt. Denver 'Bull' Randleman : Hang on, Penk, the doc's comin'!

    Alex Penkala : DOC!

    Cpl. Eugene Roe : [Roe rolls into Randleman and Penkala's foxhole]  Penkala!

    Alex Penkala : Doc!

    [Penkala is clutching his arm in agony] 

    Alex Penkala : Ah! It's the artery, I can feel it!

    Cpl. Eugene Roe : Penkala, let go!

    Alex Penkala : It's the goddamn artery!

    Cpl. Eugene Roe : Penkala, loosen your fingers, God damn it, loosen 'em now!

    Alex Penkala : I'm gonna bleed to death!

    Sgt. Denver 'Bull' Randleman : Relax your arm, Penk! Come on!

    Cpl. Eugene Roe : [Roe examines Penkala's wound]  It's not the artery.

    Alex Penkala : I ain't goin' back, Doc.

    Cpl. Eugene Roe : What?

    Alex Penkala : I ain't goin' nowhere, not in this shit!

    Cpl. Eugene Roe : You don't wanna go out in this shit and you're yellin' "medic"?

    Alex Penkala : I don't need to go back to no aid station!

    Cpl. Eugene Roe : Well, you're in luck, Penkala...

    [a shell bursts near them] 

    Cpl. Eugene Roe : ... we don't got no aid station!
