- How are you, my boy?

- Fine, uncle. Fine.

- You look it.

- Good to see you.

- Thank you.

- What do you think?

You sure aged since

I saw you last, Owen.

I'll take that as a compliment.

It's a wonderful reception.

You ain't seen nothing, yet.

Wait until the dance.

- Caroline...

- Excuse me, Miss Emmet.

- First dance, Caroline?

- Yes.

That can wait.

Business before pleasure.

- We want some things settled.

- What?

The biggest surprise you ever had.

- Del.

- Hello, Caroline.

- Everything under control at camp?

- Fine, colonel.

It's been a long time.

Three years and two hours

and 20 minutes too long.

Excuse us, while I make

up for lost time.


You look wonderful. Now I know why

I wanted to be a civilian again.

There's so many people around here

I can't hear a word you're saying.

- Evening, captain.

- Evening, Crawford.

I've been waiting for a chance

like this for a long time...

I know what you're going

to say, Del, but don't, not yet.

After all, you've been home

less than three hours.

Two hours and 20

some odd minutes.

I need more time than that.

- Owen kind of got a head start on me?

- That's not it, Del.

It's just that I want to think things out.

I wish you'd understand.

I'm trying to.

- There's one thing you can be sure of.

- I know, Del.

And I'm proud that you

feel that way about me.

It's just that I'm not quite sure

enough about myself. I have to be.

I want you to be. I'll keep asking

you every so often.

Thank you, Del.

- My dance, captain?

- Your dance, colonel.

You boys are missing

a fine time at the dance.

Well, so are you.

I heard they got barbecue pork, roast

beef, fried chicken, and all free too.

I don't want to hear about it.

Plenty of free drinks too.

- I said, I don't want to hear about it.
