Don't pay any attention.

You come to my quarters...

Joe, wait. Your pants.

- Tell him we're all filled up.

- Who?

Mrs. Horn!

Come on, Horn!

Get up!

Let's go, you old sack!


So this is where I park?

Make the best of things today.

- It's bound to be worse tomorrow.

- Count on me, Sadie!

- Me too!

- Relax, fellas!

You'll burn out your bearings!

I've got an important guest

for you, come on.

Gentlemen, I hope I don't

have to toss you out.

Sadie Thompson, Joe Horn.

- Hi, Mr. Horn.

- Hi, Sadie.

- Worst ex-non-com in the division.
