Season 5 Quotes

05x02 - Trial by Fire (2) Season 5 / Episode 2: - Trial by Fire (2)

Col. Roderick Decker: I pursued Colonel Smith and the A-Team for three long years. I lost track of how many laws they broke and how much military property they destroyed. I can tell you this: Rules mean nothing to these men, and they're loyal to no one but themselves. I have no doubt that they're capable of the crimes for which they're accused.
Col. John "Hannibal" Smith: What a guy.
05x02 - Trial by Fire (2) Season 5 / Episode 2: - Trial by Fire (2)

Capt. H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock: [During Murdock's Vietnam flashback] Mayday, mayday! [pauses] No... is it possible? Can someone make a Mayday call in January? Quick! Someone bring me an army manual!
Stewardess: Oh, I'm sorry Captain, we just ran out of army manuals. And all we have left are the navy manuals, and a few vegetarian boy scout manuals.
Capt. H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock: Then... you'd better kiss me.

Season 5 Trivia

  • Episode 01 - Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Hannibal jumps from the airplane, his parachute is only loosely attached. There are buckles hanging loose and none across his chest. The parachute would be ripped off him as soon as it opened.
  • Episode 13 - In the final scene, Murdock's shirt says 'Almost Fini', even though this is the last episode. This was because in the previous episode, his shirt says 'Fini' because that was supposed to be the final episode and it was, until the season 5 re-runs in 1987. They then screened the extra episode. T
  • Episode 06 - Goof (continuity error): In the Chinese consulate, the dial on the safe changes. When we first see it, it is black with white numbers on the face of the dial (a wall safe). The close-up shot shows it as one with a silver dial with black numbers. Also, the numbers are on the edge of the dial, indicating that it'
  • Episode 01 - Several things about the show's intro changed from this episode till the end of the show. Firstly, the removal of the clips from the following episode at the start. Instead, opting for a short introduction to the episode. Secondly, the theme tune changed to a lot more of a synthesised version. Thirdly, the vid
  • Episode 03 - Goof (continuity error): Hannibal wears the eagle insignia of a full Colonel. In the pilot episode and throughout the first four seasons, he is officially a Lieutenant-Colonel.
