Hershey bar number one!

Good stuff. Take a big bite.

Check out this sad ass, man.

Sui? It's mango.

Quit begging. They don't want your

candy bar. Give it to me.

Cam on ong very much.

Don't eat anything they give you.

Go back where you're supposed to be.

You want to die horribly?

-No, sarge.

-You were gonna eat it?

These people are confused.

Are they Cong or not?

-They're schizophrenic.

-Depends on who scared them last.

You eat some razor blades or

glass in something they give you...

-...what are you dead of?


It's a rog, Brown.

Much affirmed.

Yes, indeed.

We're overjoyed to have travelled assist them in their struggle

to upgrade themselves.

Every one of them is old or kids.

That ain't good.

This is a retirement ville.

Sort of like Florida.

I wasn't gonna eat that.

I didn't want to be rude.



Rude? I'll smack you upside the

head for talking that foolishness!

You do something rude, you say,

"Sorry about that."

For example,

you strangle their chickens...

...cop their rice, or barbecue

their fucking hootch... say, "Sorry about that."

Let me hear you say it.

"Sorry about that."

Sorry about that.

I got something for us, sir.

We asked him which path was safe.

One day he says one,

next day the other.

You VC? VC?

Number fucking 10! VC?

-You number fucking 10?


-You VC?

-VC, no! No.

No, no, no.

All right! We got it!

Number one, old man.

-Come on.


I hope that ain't your

idea of fun, buddy.

This is some

piece of equipment!

Don't look like it to me.

Look like some tree got tangled up.

And this fool gonna tie it to his cow.

Do you know how

one of these things works?

Ain't you supposed to be

hauling water to your pals...
