During the beginning teaser, B.A. when he enters the house, says "Shut up! Shut up! We're coming in here jack! Now get the first aid kit before you have to use it on yourself!" However, during the episode, another take of the scene is shown with the "Shut up! Shut up!" line omitted. - Source TV.com
Right after Hannibal says, "I love it when a plan comes together," there is a shot over the top of the A-Team van, facing the guys in brown robes holding guns on the van. A voice says, "Get out of that van with your hands up" -- but no one's mouth is moving in the shot. - Source TV.com
During the fight in town at the beginning of the episode, watch the baseball bat carefully. In most of the shots, it is a foam bat, which gets floppy if not held correctly. Watch the way George Peppard takes it from Melinda Culea; even though he tries to hold it steady, it still wobbles a little at the top as he swings away from her. The floppiness is most evident as Dirk Benedict takes it from Peppard (watch how it arcs a little around his hand), and just before Benedict throws it down at the end of the fight (the end wobbles visibly). - Source TV.com
Goof: When Hannibal gets out of the van in the camp, his handcuffs are open. He closes them by himself. - Source TV.com
Goof: Face and the farmers daughter are walking by one of the burned out jeeps, you can clearly see the smoke bomb, lodged in the engine, stop smoking. - Source TV.com
B.A. (to Amy) "Don't be afraid, I won't let anything happen to you. (to Hannibal) She can't do it, we have to see her through this."
Martin James "Have you heard this poem? The time of right is the goal of the fight. The Lord will prevail where evil shall wail."
Hannibal "Have you heard this poem? Hickory Dickory Dock, the mouse ran up the clock. The clock struck one, down he run, you smell worse than my socks."
Hannibal "I believe it was General Grant who once said: When you are surrounded and outnumbered, there's only one way out."
Amy "Yeah? And what's that?"
Amy: "We need your help - he's injured."
Farmer: "Look, there's nothing we can do to help you. We don't even have a phone. My daughter and I have lived here for the past five years, alone..."
B.A.: "We comin' in, Jack! Now get the first aid kit before you have to use it on yourself!"
B.A.: "Hannibal, why you gotta go and bust Faceman in the lip for? You know if you make him ugly, it'll mess up our meal ticket. Won't be able to get no more good hotel rooms."
Hannibal: "These boots are hard to get."
Hannibal: "...besides, he stole my boots. Nobody steals my boots."
