Kilo Two Bravo (2014) Script

Man in the fucking water.

Shit. Stick to their own fucking side, man.

Cheeky fucking midgets.

Oi. Check your arcs, Rambo.

Mowgli!

I'm here trying to bring fucking peace and love to your shitty stone-age country.

Is it too much to be able to enjoy a rinse without taking indirect fucking fire from you lot?

Let that be a lesson to ya.

Go on, fuck off now then.

Ever heard the one about not walking into a room until you know how you're walking out of there, Tug?

We all miss our birds, mucker. No need to start grooming the local nippers.

Fuck off.

Grenade fishing - nearly catch of the fucking day, me.

Hey, no harm done.

TWO, yeah?

First lesson my grandma taught me, Tug. Don't pick a fight with an armed midget.

We're a long way from home.

What you talking about, you're from Huddersfield.

Go on, mate. Cheers.

Race you back up?

You're fully loaded, mate. Unfair fight.


OK, go! Now!

Signals? Yeah, mate. Cheers.

Come on then, what's the news? Heard there was a heatwave back home.

Typical, innit? Heatwave? Pissed it down, mate.

Anyway, where's the FLET?

FLET? Hat!

It's all around you, mate.

Terry pokes his nose up here. We smash him back into his hole.

Bosh!

Did you bring it? In the back, pal.

My guy tells me something's coming.

They got a new field commander. Keep your eyes open.

Sure, John. Cheers.

Civvies here? Yank security.

They look after the engineers working on the dam.

Talk about hearts and minds this joint would supply electricity to half of bloody Helmand if someone could work out how to turn it on.

So where have you been? Ops room, Bastion. Sangin, then here.

Sangin. Proper tasty, right? Telling me.

Is this us? Nah. OMLTs.

Teaching the ANA which end of a weapon's the noisy bit.

We're up top, mate.

So what's it like up here? Right, OK, fellas...

It's going on, that's what it is, mucker.

I quit the reg after Telic: Zero contacts, mate.

I joined back when Herrick was on. Finally get a piece of the action.

Rather be in the scrum than on a subs bench, do you know what I mean?

Not really.

Rugby's a real game, mate. Taliban should play it. Tough bastards.

I'm pretty sure Afghans don't play rugby.

Here, look, look, look.

Give us a lift up, pal? Hop on, Tug.

Do one, Presser'. Good for you, hat.

Fucking dick swinger.

Hop on, Mark!

Did they come? Dunno, look in here, Spud.

Sergeant McMellon. Signaller Jones.

Shit the fucking bed!

I hope you know how to use a radio without batteries, Signaller Jones.

For fuck's sake.

Right, welfare box. Who wants it? Yeah, I'll have it, Pross.

Any decent scoff though, we split it, yeah?

Presser, stop twatting about and get that stuff up there!

Fusilier AL Barlow's got his porn re-sup.

Fuck me, Ken, your mum looks hotter every month.

Yeah, fucking hands off, mate. The rest?

Mark. Here you go, mate.

Cheers, pal.

Signals? Oman, yeah.

Jonesy. Mark.

How you doing, man? Good, mate.

What the fuck's this? You dicks! You been up here before?

No, first time.

Aye, ar, mortar boys, you can have that one. Jay, you wanna show him around, mate.

Well, we know where your basha is, Barlow. Keep an eye open, that's all I'm saying, mate.

Look.

Luke, boat came in, mate.

Skin 'em up will you.

Prosser, catch you up there, pal. Yeah, man.

Fuck it. Ten quid. Thanks Aunt Pam, just what I fucking need out here.

New TACSAT's come in, Spud. I'll set it up.

This is Athens. You've got three-sixty all-round defence.

Down here you've got the GPMG fifty cal.

Clackers for the claymores. In here's the interpreter's place.

That's water, ablutions. You got burn pit, shit pit down beyond that.

Right, this needs to go over with the other stuff.

Ken.

Oh for fuck's sake, Spud, I did it yesterday.

Thank you, Ken.

Thank you, Presser.

Come on, lads... You're in here with the medic and the med store.

HQ, mortar pit. Go on then, fucking sign 'em out There's about sixteen odd here at Athens.

Seven, eight, up at Normandy. That's it. Stay on marked tracks. Enjoy.

Well, the clinical term is dick rot.

Was it anyone nice? Four, actually. All delightful.

Bastard.

Right, put it away. You gotta be careful flashing it about this lot.

What is it? Long time on the hill.

Gungy mortars? The rumours are true, pal. Not that they'd go near that rancid thing.

Oh, yeah.

From Nog German.

Happy birthday.

He says make sure you save 'em till the big day. When's that?

Seventh. Why, what are we now?

Unlucky, pal. Fifth.

Fuck that. I'm not waiting two fucking days.

You taking heat up here?

Nah, I get more contact when my bird's on the rag.

I mean it were busy for a bit but Terry's pissed off back to Sangin.

We own all this high ground. Out of small arms range.

A few Chinese rockets, bit of boom boom in the valley, but that's it.

Lucky cos we're out of ammo.

Nah, boredom or ANN“ get you before Terry does.

Right. Jonesy, yeah? Yeah.

Antibiotics, anti-inflammatories. Take one of each before each meal.

Run the course.

Give the pin dick a bit of R and R, yeah?

BURPS

Stop staring at my arse, you throbber.

What's the fucking hurry, hat?

Aye up, lads, budgie express inbound.

Wind direction please, Private Harvey.

I do know this guy, right? Out of the west, Private Smith.

Yeah.

OK, I'm...

I'm dead. I'm a man. I'm British. I've got a gay beard.

We think.

We think. I killed a king and I'm not Guy Fawkes.

Who didn't kill anyone.

For fuck's sake, Stu mate. Fucker!

It's like watching a retard trying to fuck a doorknob.

I thought you knew your fucking history.

Just fucking guess, will you, before I slit my fucking wrists.

Am I anything to do with King Arthur? No.

You got three guesses and then it's five bines for mush.

This is a fucking stitch-up. Hey, rules is rules. Right, Stu?

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains and the Women come out to cut up What remains just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains...?

And go to your God like a soldier.

For fuck's sake.

What you doing putting this shit in your fucking head?

Well, it's a bit of perspective, innit?

Perspective on what?

What a dour-faced bastard Rudyard Kipling was?

You fucking pricks.

It's Quasimodo and Wurzel Gummidge.

It's alright... What happened, Ken?

You can get your own fucking shit tomorrow, OK?

Did you get the three-fifty chargers?

Negative.

For fuck's sake.

Fuck off the two of youse. Prosser's got another unit.

Alright cock smokers? Yeah.

Here, how come it's always you that gets the crap jobs then, Ken?

Fuck off.

Crap hat, crap job.

You can fuck off too, Cromwell.

Faz.

It doesn't count if someone fucking tells you, does it?

Rules is rules, Smudge, yeah. Five bines. You absolute knob.

Come on, listen. It's important that we clear the rocks out as well.

You know, in case we want to come down and plant some fucking cabbages one day.

Right, Stu. Looks like you might have a break above the knee.

Nothing I can do now, but I've given you another stick of morphine, yeah?

Corporal Hale is P one.

Stable but needs immediate evac, Spud.

Can casualty be moved to Normandy for evac? Over.

Wait out. Medics, can we carry him out? Well, he's stable when he's flat.

At an angle there's a chance he could bleed out or bleed in.

We need a winch, pal. That's what I've been saying.

We've got a stretcher.

We should have enough bodies to keep him level.

Have you seen how fucking steep it is? Just cut the corner, go up the re-entrant.

No way are we leaving the path.

I'm saying stick tight, wait here for the heli. That's my opinion.

Mark, what you thinking?

We need to pull him away from the rocks. Get him in the open.

There, the raised bank.

Alright.

Right lads, listen up.

I need two bodies to help clear a route over there. Kilo Five Alpha, send, over.

Try not to fuck it up from here, aye? Dead ground on approaches to the OP.

Why, what's up? Dunno.

Good old Ken's fucking found it for us. Cheers Ken!

Always getting dicked, mate. The really funny thing is boys... they didn't get fucking planted here, they all just washed off the hill and down to the river beds. There could be fucking hundreds of them...

Is that how it's gonna be now? 'Oh, my poor leg. Oi, lend us a quid, Smudge.'

Alright, fuck off.

Hannibal Lector? Nah.

Let's call it quits.

Harold Shipman.

Harold fucking who?

Harold Shipman, the doctor of death.

No, I've never heard of him.

Of course you have. He killed, like, two-hundred people, maybe more.

He's not, like, fucking world famous, is he? He's from your neck of the woods.

You know exactly who I'm talking about.

Well, there's not a fucking plaque to him. He's up there. You'd be surprised.

We're never getting out of here.

I reckon you made him up.

Ten minutes.

Kenneth Arthur Barlow.

Hey, Ken!

If it's hurting it means you're alive, mate. Alright?

Stu.

Mark?

Talk about what?

You tell me, pal.

We could talk about the weather.

Short, fucking conversation.

T... tell you what, I'm trying to think if I've had worse birthdays than this.

And I've had some shit ones.

When I was eight, my... mum and dad clean out fucking forgot.

All daylong I was thinking they're just pretending.

They're gonna spring this monster fucking surprise on me.

Even when I'm having my tea in the bath getting into fucking bed...

I'm thinking, 'These guys are good.'

Then they shut the door, turned out the lights

and that was it.

I cried like a burst fucking drain.

Then they came back in though, yeah? No.

No. They fucking forgot.

But this is shitter.

Well, we can do something about that, can't we boys?

Stu.

Ken, Mark.

Happy birthday to you!

Hey, give us a minute, man. I think I've got a bottle of champagne in the fucking bag.

Looks like you're out of luck, mate.

It's funny... What's that?

My mum always said I was born under a lucky star.

How?

Kept on winning things, you know, like raffles and stuff.

Yeah.

She always wore them when I came home.
