Teri, don't throw all that away because

of an attachment to this animal.

Bring them here.

Let them see how much he's learned.

- When they see how much he's learned--

- They don't care.

I've been on the phone

with them all morning.

- It's like talking to a brick wall.

- Well, I don't care.

I'm keeping him.

The National Health Foundation

owns him.

I'll buy him.

And where are you going to find

the $15,000?

I'll raise it.

Not to mention

the $10,000 a year

for food and a veterinarian?

Come on.

I'll get it.

We all knew this was a temporary

arrangement when he got here.

I raised him.

He doesn't know anybody but me.

He's not gonna understand

what's happening.

There's a new children's zoo

in Houston.

I think he's going to be

sent there.

He'll be well cared for

and well loved.

( jet engine roaring )

( chittering )

Well, hello, my man.

You're in the air force now.

( monkeys chittering )

( monkeys screeching )

( typewriter keys clacking )

This is it. I'm through.

I'm dead. I'm done.

You've got to come up

with something.

They'll never let me fly again.

They're gonna

ground me forever.

Ground you?

You stole an airplane

from the air force.

You had a girl and an open bottle

of champagne in the cockpit.

I'm screwed.

You're gonna be lucky

if they let you walk again.

- So what are you gonna say?

- I don't know.

Okay, look.

Tell the colonel this girl is, like,

terrified of flying.

She had a brother who was killed

in a plane crash.

He got shot down in Vietnam.

So you took her up in your plane

to get her over the fear.

That's the stupidest thing

I ever heard.

They'll see right through it.

You're right.

You're screwed.

Come on, Garrett, let's get cleaned up.

You gotta go see the colonel.

- So what are you gonna do?
