No, I mean...

I wanna join up right now.

I wanna prove my heroism.

I don't think we can help right now.

Sir, I've made improvements.

Now, hold on a minute.

Just... Wait, hold on a second.


- Ned...

- I put on 15 pounds of muscle mass.

- Son...

- I can do 60 push-ups without stopping

and 100 if you give me

a 30-second break.

I can run six miles in 42 minutes.

- Ned...

- I watch all of Randy Couture's fights.

- I can mix martial arts.

- Now, son...

- That's not how it works.

- Please, sir.

I will go to the caves.

- Okay.

- I will leave no man behind.

Son, please put your shirt back on.

I can do 100 push-ups.

- Forget the break.

- Now, hold on now.

- And, one, two...

- Ned.

- ...three, four...

- ...five...

- Hold on, son.

Now, son, get up

Ned, come on, honey!

Golden Coral, it's your night.

We're gonna have fun.

Let's go!

I don't suppose you've seen him.


He's probably down there

sulking in the cougar suit.

- Same as when they canned him from the hospital.

- There were a lot of cutbacks that year.

Same as when they found

that girl in the lake.

The Andersons were very

grateful for his help.

Same as when he was

the mascot in the first place.

Ned! Oh, my God. - He was gonna score.

- Please, wait.

That's my son. He's not dangerous.

Please let him go.

- Sorry, Mom, he was gonna score.

- Sweetheart, are you all right?

Mom, I got him.

- He just wants to help.

- That's not the point.

The Marine Corps?

He's been going down there

every year since 9/11,
