l'd be happy to teach you.

lt would be my pleasure.

Hey, look here, snowflake,

as was my father before me.

Oh, you free?

blue suits, only white soldiers.

Well, we soldiers now.

Forbes, that's you.


How are you?

- You know Charlie Morse.

- Thomas Searles.


So how was your meal?

The rmoulade was a trifle tart...

...but the souffl more

than made up for it.

And your comrades?

Charming. Extraordinary

conversationalists, every one.

Major Forbes.

A word, please.

Excuse me, Thomas.

l won't permit

that kind of fraternization.

But it's only Thomas.

He's an enlisted man.

l've sent for help.

These men need a proper teacher.

For God's sake, men,
