- Daddy, can I come with you?

- You want to come with me?

Did you feel how cold it is out there?

I'll tell you what,

go hang out with Mommy for a little while,

help out with the baby.

When I come back in, if you still want

to go out, I'll take you out with me.

- Promise?

- I promise. Hurry up, go.

- What's going on, sir?

- What's up, brother?

Nothing much, man.

Now, I know

you got the New York heritage,

but this isn't exactly like

sitting back in Staten Island.

You got to actually work hard

to get through the surf.

- Yeah, I know.

- Twelve-plus years on the Teams,

and you don't know

how to do this?

Hey, wait till you

have five kids, man.

You'll see how much time

you got to play in the surf.

You ready to get

in the drink or what?

All right, man, lead the way.

- All right, don't embarrass us.

- All right.

and I was his Chief.

strengthened our bond as operators.

There was a brotherhood between us,

and we depended on each other

more than a family.

Tecumseh said,

"Although a single twig will break,

a bundle of twigs is strong".

OK, OK, gracias.

Wow, this is unbelievable.

I still can't believe you

ordered Chinese in this place.

It's really good.

Double word score,

- "Dumb"?

- Read it and weep, sugar.

I'll try not to.

Look at this, look at this.

Thirty-eight points for me.


that's not even a word.

OK, first of all,

it's pronounced "adumbrating,"

and it means pretending,



Guess who's buying dinner

tonight, sugar.


In most cases,

officers get tactical partners.

Langley sets me up

with some sort of SCRABBLE hustler.


Get it right.

- How much do I owe you?

- Nada.


Our platoon

was headed downrange.
