Sergeant: All right, you cheese-dicks, welcome to the Nam. Follow me!
During the scene where Chris (Charlie Sheen) gets his second taste of marijuana through the shotgun barrel handled by Elias (Willem Dafoe), Elias first racks the slide back and forwards, meaning the bolt is now closed. However, when Elias starts to blow smoke into the barrel the bolt is now at the back position and open. In order for Elias to truly use the shotgun to blow smoke through the barrel the shotgun bolt would have to be at the open position..Meaning the "back and forwards" slide of the shotgun in the beginning of the scene was a editing error.
TV version has much of its dialogue redubbed and shots refilmed, replacing such lines as "He thinks he's Jesus F---in' Christ!" with "He thinks he's George Freakin' Washington!"
