nothing as exciting as what

you're doing, I'm sure.

It is what it is.

I don't know. I, um...

Honey, you can't just leave

him hanging and expect him to

be there when you get back.

I'm not leaving him hanging,

and I told you I'm not coming back.

I'm going on another deployment, remember?

All right.

So, how about on the base?

Have you met anyone down there?

Mom, seriously, stop.

I'm not dating an army guy, and I did not

join the military to find a husband.

Oh, yeah.


Look who wants to say hello.

Say hi, scribbles.

Look who it is!

Look who it is!

Say hi, scribbles.

The weather today... bright and sunny.

High of 85...

Tomorrow, there is a chance of rain...

Thank you, private.

Last week...

Come down here.

Make sure you...


You want a book?

Do you want a book?

Hey, calm down.

Calm down. Take a step back.

Take one step back from the glass.

- I can't understand what...

- Yo, Haji!

Chill the f*ck out.

- I'll take that book, but you give it to me.

- All right, all right. Chill out.

I got this.

Did I do something wrong?

No. These guys just don't like girls.

It's an arab thing.

You want me to take over?

No. It's okay.

I can handle it.

All right. Suit yourself.

Do you know those books?

What about them?

Do you like them?

You were watching the books.

I'm asking you a question.

What do you want from the cart?

Do you have the new Harry Potter book?

No. This is not the new Harry Potter book.

This is the old one.

I already read this one.

I want the last book.

Which one's that?

The last book?

It's, you know...

You... you see that book there?

It has no cover on it, huh?

Uh-huh, yes.

That book... it used to have a cover.

I remember I read this cover,

you know, when it has a cover on it.
