Episode Summary

EDIT
Bridge at Chalons
AIRED:
Lee Marvin guest stars as a sergeant in command of a small demolition team that Saunders and his squad is ordered to take behind German lines to destroy a bridge. Lee Marvin does not believe the squad is large enough to handle the job. He requests a platoon but is refused by Lieutenant Hanley. Marvin submits but has a huge chip on his shoulder due to a close friend being killed. He has no confidence in Saunders or his men to get the job done and frequently ridicules them during the mission.moreless

    • Sgt. Chip Saunders (a typical "pep talk" to his squad): ...All right, just knock it off. You knock it off! You people make me sick. Go on, look at yourselves. You call yourselves a squad? You're a bunch of GOOF-UPS! Littlejohn, you cause nothing but trouble! You mind everybody's business except your own. From now on, you mind your OWN business and you FOLLOW ORDERS! Kirby - Kirby! You're a hot-headed show-off who thinks of himself first and everybody else second. You fly off the handle every time you turn around! Cooling your heels off in some stockade may be exactly what you need, so you'd just better SHAPE UP! Now I've had it. I have had it! This squad's gonna shape up! You've been on the front so long, you're forgetting you're soldiers! And I'm sick of...!
