At night, the paratroopers rest outside of Eindhoven. Dawson approach to Baker and talks about the pistol legend and supposed secret Baker is hiding. Baker remembered the nightmares of his friends dying in Normandy. Baker denied any hiding which Dawson replies someone disagree with Baker. However, the conversation cuts short as they hear air sirens and saw Luftwaffe bombers bombing Eindhoven. Baker screamed to his men to prepare for a fight.

Back to present where Franky is kissing the Dutch Girl,
Meanwhile, while the other paratroopers and soldiers are continuing the march parade, Red and Dawson walks near the statue and talk about the myth in the squad.
Hartsock: The guys told me you're asking around about stuff about happened after D-Day. Stuff about Leggett.
Dawson: It was about anyone who touched that Pistol. They all died! For some reason that doesn't seem to strike anyone else as extraordinarily odd!
Hartsock: It does.They lost friends in what you're pokin' at. It's not easy to talk about.
Dawson:Why's it so easy for you?
Hartsock: Because I believe every damn word of it.
Red walks off,as Franky talks to the girl.
Franky: Yeah,we're kinda like the bigshots in the 101st. We save people's asses. & You can't understand a word I'm saying can you?
Corrion walks up & drags Franky.
Corrion: Alright, loverboy, we gotta keep moving.
Franky: I'll come back for you!
As the Dutch Girl walks off, inside a building, Baker, Hartsock & Campbell are talking.
Hartsock: Well we made the link up with thirty corps & did our part. You think we'll get home on time?
Baker: According to Montgomery,Thirty corps ain't two days late,in which they are.
Campbell: What's your hurry, Red?
Hartsock: I'd like to meet my Daughter before she turns three.
Red walks out with frustration in his eyes, as Baker glare at Campbell for making a mistake with Campbell stare back indirectly saying sorry
For Matthew Edit
At night time, most of the 101st are taking rest outside of Eindhoven. Night was calm and it seems peace last for tonight. Dawson comes to talk to Baker, sitting back on a tree.
Dawson: Zanovich took Courtland and Franky out on patrol around the perimeter. I hope to God those Kraut wankers leave us alone for tonight.
Baker: You certainly have a specific way of talking. I'll give you that.
Dawson: Is that the gun?
Baker: Yeah. I had to use it in Eindhoven. The kid almost shot me. He doesn't understand...any of this.
Dawson: Do you?
Baker: Excuse me?
Dawson: Understand this? That?
Baker: You buy into that shit?
Dawson: You don't purchase faith. Those men died holding a pistol you refuse to take because, as some pointed out, you were too afraid. I mean, forgive me for not believing it's all random chance.
Baker: It was my father's. That's why I didn't want it.
Dawson: Yeah, who also died holding it.
Baker: What are you trying to prove, Dawson?
Dawson: That you're hiding something.
Baker's starts to remember what happened back at Normandy where he lost his friends. He first remember the Dead's Man Corner incident where his best friend, George is shot down by the Germans. It soon cuts to Allen and Garnett's deaths.
Garnett: Leggett, Allen, get the fu--
Garnett is shot in the head with a splint of surprise before he is dead, it soon cuts to Hill 30 during Leggett death where he is holding the gun with voices back at Allen and Garnett's death .
Leggett: Baker I'm sorry...There was too many of them.
Leggett (voice over): BAKER!!!
Voice: This thing is bad luck.
Baker soon snap out from his horrible memories and quickly reply back to Dawson from his previous question.
Baker: I'm not hiding anything.
Dawson: I talked to someone who would disagree with you.
As soon Dawson continued, both men heard the air raid siren and caught them surprised.
Dawson: Hey, did you hear that?
Baker gets up and walks forward to check the situation. Suddenly, Luftwaffe Dornier Do 17 and Junker Ju 87 bombers is seen in the night skies with bombs falling down to Eindhoven. One explosion hits the city and another and another and more bombers are coming to hit the city. As soon Baker witness it, he screamed to his men.
