YOU ARE NOTHING BUT UNORGANIZED GRAB-ASSTIC PIECES OF AMPHIBIAN SHIT.

BECAUSE I AM HARD, YOU WILL NOT LIKE ME.

THE MORE YOU HATE ME, THE MORE YOU'LL LEARN.

THERE IS NO RACIAL BIGOTRY HERE.

I DO NOT LOOK DOWN ON NIGGERS, KIKES, WOPS, OR GREASERS.

NOW, YOU LISTEN TO ME, PRIVATE PYLE, AND YOU LISTEN GOOD.

I WANT THAT WEAPON, AND I WANT IT NOW!

AND STEP BACK AWAY FROM IT.

WHAT IS YOUR MAJOR MALFUNCTION, NUMB-NUTS?

THAT LITTLE SUCKER REALLY HAD SOME MOVES.

WHAT REALLY PISSES ME OFF IS THAT WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE HELPING THESE PEOPLE AND THEY SHIT ON US EVERY CHANCE THEY GET.

DON'T TAKE IT TOO HARD, RAFTERMAN.

IT'S JUST BUSINESS.

I HATE DA NANG, JOKER.

I WANT TO GO OUT INTO THE FIELD.

I'VE BEEN HERE ALMOST THREE MONTHS TAKING HANDSHAKE SHOTS AT AWARDS CEREMONIES.

YOU'D GET WASTED YOUR FIRST DAY IN THE FIELD, AND IT'D BE MY FAULT.

A HIGH SCHOOL GIRL COULD DO MY JOB.

I WANT TO GET SOME TRIGGER TIME.

IF YOU GET KILLED, YOUR MOM WILL FIND ME AND SHE'LL BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF ME.

NEGATIVE, RAFTERMAN.

OK, GUYS, LET'S KEEP IT SHORT AND SWEET.

ANYBODY GOT ANYTHING NEW?

THERE'S A RUMOR THAT THE TET CEASE-FIRE WILL BE CANCELED.

REAR-ECHELON PARANOIA.

A BRO IN INTELLIGENCE SAYS CHARLIE MIGHT TRY SOMETHING BIG DURING THE TET HOLIDAY.

THEY SAY THAT EVERY YEAR.

THE TET HOLIDAY'S LIKE JULY 4th, CHRISTMAS, AND NEW YEAR ALL IN ONE.

EVERY ZIPPERHEAD IN NAM WILL BE BANGING GONGS, BARKING AT THE MOON, AND VISITING DEAD RELATIVES.

RIGHT.

ANN-MARGRET AND ENTOURAGE ARE DUE HERE NEXT WEEK.

I WANT RAFTERMAN TO STICK WITH HER FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS.

GET ME SOME GOOD LOW-ANGLE STUFF.

DON'T MAKE IT TOO OBVIOUS, BUT I WANT TO SEE FUR AND EARLY MORNING DEW.

"DIPLOMATS IN DUNGAREES--

MARINE ENGINEERS HELP REBUILD DONG PHUC VILLAGES..."

CHILI, IF WE MOVE VIETNAMESE, THEY ARE EVACUEES.

IF THEY COME TO US, THEY ARE REFUGEES.

YES, SIR.

"NVA SOLDIER DESERTS AFTER READING PAMPHLETS--

"A YOUNG NORTH VIETNAMESE REGULAR, "REALIZING HIS SIDE COULD NOT WIN THE WAR, DESERTED AFTER READING OPEN ARMS PROGRAM PAMPHLETS."

GOOD, DAVE. BUT WHY SAY "REGULAR"?

IS THERE AN IRREGULAR?

HOW ABOUT "SOLDIER"?

I'LL FIX IT UP, SIR.

LAWRENCE WELK GOES ON TV IN TWO WEEKS.

DAVE, DO 100 WORDS ON IT.

"NOT WHILE WE'RE EATING--

"NVA LEARN MARINES ON A SEARCH-AND-DESTROY MISSION DON'T LIKE THEIR CHOW INTERRUPTED."

WE HAVE A NEW MAF DIRECTIVE ON THIS.

"IN THE FUTURE, IN PLACE OF SEARCH AND DESTROY, SUBSTITUTE THE PHRASE SWEEP AND CLEAR."

VERY CATCHY.

JOKER, WHERE'S THE WEENIE?

SIR?

THE KILL, JOKER, THE KILL.

THE GRUNTS MUST HAVE HIT SOMETHING.

DIDN'T SEE THEM.

I'VE TOLD YOU, WE RUN TWO BASIC STORIES HERE.

GRUNTS WHO GIVE HALF THEIR PAY TO BUY GOOKS TOOTHBRUSHES AND DEODORANTS--

WINNING OF HEARTS AND MINDS.

AND COMBAT ACTION THAT RESULTS IN A KILL--

WINNING THE WAR.

YOU SAW BLOOD TRAILS? DRAG MARKS?

IT WAS RAINING, SIR.

THAT'S WHY GOD PASSED THE LAW OF PROBABILITY.

GIVE IT A HAPPY ENDING-- SAY, ONE KILL.

A SAPPER OR AN OFFICER. WHICH?

WHICHEVER YOU SAY.

GRUNTS LIKE READING ABOUT DEAD OFFICERS.

OK, AN OFFICER. HOW ABOUT A GENERAL?

JOKER, YOU WANT OUR GUYS TO FEEL BAD?

IN CASE YOU DON'T KNOW, THIS ISN'T A PARTICULARLY POPULAR WAR.

OUR JOB IS TO REPORT THE NEWS THESE "WHY ARE WE HERE" CIVILIAN NEWSMEN IGNORE.

SIR, MAYBE YOU SHOULD GO ON SOME OPS.

I'M SURE YOU COULD FIND A LOT MORE BLOOD TRAILS AND DRAG MARKS.

JOKER, I'VE HAD MY ASS IN THE GRASS.

CAN'T SAY I LIKED IT.

LOTS OF BUGS AND TOO DANGEROUS.

AS IT HAPPENS, MY PRESENT DUTIES KEEP ME WHERE I BELONG, IN THE REAR WITH THE GEAR.

I AM FUCKING BORED TO DEATH, MAN.

I GOT TO GET BACK IN THE SHIT.

I AIN'T HEARD A SHOT FIRED IN ANGER IN WEEKS.

JOKER'S SO TOUGH, HE'D EAT BOOGERS OUT OF A DEAD MAN'S NOSE, THEN ASK FOR SECONDS.

[AS JOHN WAYNE] LISTEN UP, PILGRIM.

A DAY WITHOUT BLOOD IS LIKE A DAY WITHOUT SUNSHINE.

SHIT.

JOKER THINKS THE BAD BUSH IS BETWEEN AN OLD MAMA-SAN'S LEGS.

HE'S NEVER BEEN IN THE SHIT.

IT'S HARD TO TALK ABOUT, MAN.

IT'S LIKE ON HASTINGS.

YOU WEREN'T ON OPERATION HASTINGS, PAYBACK.

EAT SHIT AND DIE, YOU FUCKIN' SPANISH-AMERICAN POGE!

I WAS IN THE SHIT WITH THE GRUNTS.

[AS JOHN WAYNE] DON'T LISTEN TO PAYBACK'S BULLSHIT.

SOMETIMES HE THINKS HE'SJOHN WAYNE.

YOU LISTEN TO JOKER, NEW GUY.

HE KNOWS TI TI, VERY LITTLE.

YOU KNOW HE'S NEVER BEEN IN THE SHIT

'CAUSE HE AIN'T GOT THE STARE, THE 1,000-YARD STARE.

A MARINE GETS IT AFTER HE'S BEEN IN THE SHIT TOO LONG.

IT'S LIKE YOU'RE REALLY SEEING BEYOND.

I GOT IT.

I WILL?

HEY, PAYBACK, HOW DO YOU STOP FIVE BLACK DUDES FROM RAPING A WHITE CHICK?

[SIRENS]


HEY, I HOPE THEY'RE JUST FUCKING WITH US.

I AIN'T READY FOR THIS SHIT.

AMEN.


CEASE FIRE!

CEASE FIRE!

[SCATTERED GUNFIRE]

CEASE FIRE!

THE ENEMY HAS VERY DECEITFULLY TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF THE TET CEASE-FIRE TO LAUNCH AN OFFENSIVE ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.

SO FAR, WE'VE HAD IT PRETTY EASY HERE, BUT WE SEEM TO BE THE EXCEPTION.

CHARLIE HAS HIT EVERY MILITARY TARGET IN VIETNAM AND HIT THEM HARD.

IN SAIGON, THE UNITED STATES EMBASSY HAS BEEN OVERRUN BY SUICIDE SQUADS.

OH, SHIT. OH, SHIT.

KHE SANH IS STANDING BY TO BE OVERRUN.

WE ALSO HAVE REPORTS THAT AN NVA DIVISION HAS OCCUPIED ALL OF THE CITY OF HUE SOUTH OF THE PERFUME RIVER.

IN STRATEGIC TERMS, CHARLIE'S CUT THE COUNTRY IN HALF, THE CIVILIAN PRESS ARE ABOUT TO WET THEIR PANTS, AND WE'VE HEARD EVEN CRONKITE'S GOING TO SAY THE WAR IS UNWINNABLE.

IN OTHER WORDS, IT'S A HUGE SHIT SANDWICH, AND WE ALL HAVE TO TAKE A BITE.

SIR...

DOES THIS MEAN THAT ANN-MARGRET'S NOT COMING?

[LAUGHTER]

JOKER, I WANT YOU TO GET STRAIGHT UP TO PHU BAI.

CAPTAIN JANUARY WILL NEED ALL HIS PEOPLE.

YES, SIR.

AND, JOKER...

HOW WILL IT LOOK IF YOU GET KILLED WEARING A PEACE SYMBOL?

SIR, PERMISSION TO GO WITH JOKER?

PERMISSION GRANTED.

THANK YOU, SIR.

SIR, PERMISSION NOTTO TAKE RAFTERMAN WITH ME?

WHAT CAUSE WAS THAT?

FREEDOM?

FLUSH OUT YOUR HEADGEAR, NEW GUY.

YOU THINK WE WASTE GOOKS FOR FREEDOM?

HE WAS ALL SET TO GET SHIPPED OUT ON A MEDICAL.

WHAT WAS THE MATTER WITH HIM?

HE WAS JERKING OFF 10 TIMES A DAY.

THAT'S NO SHIT.

AT LEAST 1O TIMES A DAY.

LAST WEEK, HE WAS SENT DOWN TO DA NANG TO SEE THE NAVY HEAD SHRINKER, AND THE CRAZY FUCKER STARTS JERKING OFF IN THE WAITING ROOM.

INSTANT SECTION 8.

HE WAS JUST WAITING FOR HIS PAPERS TO CLEAR DIVISION.

YOU READY?

TURNOVER.

ROLLING.

HUE CITY INTERVIEWS. ROLL 34.

WELL...LIKE--LIKE, YOU SEE, IT'S A MAJOR CITY, SO WE HAVE TO ASSAULT WITH, UH, TANKS.

WE ROLL IN THE STREETS, SO THEY SEND US IN FIRST SQUAD TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE ARE NO, UH...

NO LITTLE, UH...NO VIETNAMESE WAITING WITH B-40 ROCKETS THAT BLOW THE TANKS AWAY.

WE CLEAR IT OUT AND ROLL THE TANKS IN AND BASICALLY BLOW THE PLACE TO HELL.

LIKE, WHAT I THOUGHT-- WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT A WAR--

MOTHER GREEN AND HER KILLING MACHINE.

DO I THINK AMERICA BELONGS IN VIETNAM?

I DON'T KNOW.

IBELONG IN VIETNAM. I'LL TELL YOU THAT.

CAN I QUOTE LBJ?

SURE.

"I WILL NOT SEND AMERICAN BOYS

"8,000 OR 10,000 MILES AROUND THE WORLD

"TO DO A JOB THAT ASIAN BOYS OUGHT TO BE DOIN' FOR THEMSELVES."

PERSONALLY, I THINK, UH, THEY DON'T REALLY WANT TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS WAR.

I MEAN--I THINK THEY-- IT'S SORT OF LIKE THEY TOOK AWAY OUR FREEDOM AND GAVE IT TO THE GOOKERS.

THEY DON'T WANT IT.

THEY'D RATHER BE ALIVE THAN FREE, I GUESS, POOR DUMB BASTARDS.

WELL, THE ONES I'M-- I'M FIGHTIN' AT ARE SOME PRETTY-- PRETTY BAD BOYS.

I'M NOT REAL, UH... I'M NOT REAL KEEN ON...

WELL, IF YOU ASK ME, UH...

WE'RE SHOOTING THE WRONG GOOKS.

I'M--I'M HERE TO TAKE COMBAT PHOTOS, BUT IF THE SHIT GETS TOO THICK, I'LL GO TO THE RIFLE.

WHAT DO I THINK ABOUT AMERICA'S INVOLVEMENT IN THE WAR?

I THINK WE SHOULD WIN.

I HATE VIETNAM. THERE'S NOT ONE HORSE IN THIS WHOLE COUNTRY.

THEY DON'T HAVE ONE HORSE IN VIETNAM.

THERE'S SOMETHING BASICALLY WRONG WITH THAT. HA HA!
