your attitude on this.

I think he fucked up, Colonel.

I think he fucked up.

That's my attitude.

On your feet!

Sorry to have to reach out

like that for you, Sergeant.

You're gonna be a hero in your hometown.

You're going to Chicago.

I am, sir? Doing what?

We believe Soviet Intelligence is

operating within a neo-Nazi group there.

We want you in that group to find out

what the Soviets are up to.

Yes, sir.

We believe that they plan to assassinate

the president of the United States.


I can handle it, sir.

We know you can, Sergeant.

We know you can.


- Hey, Gallagher!

- What do you want?

I been looking all over for you.

You got orders sending you stateside.

- What are you talking about?

- You're taking back a package.

Some sergeant keeps sluggin' officers.

They want him tomorrow.

What the hell's goin' on?

Somebody's yankin' your chain,


I've had enough of you.

You're doing good, though, Horvath.

You're tough.

Cold, ugly, tough.

You're pushin' it.

Button it up, asshole.

- What'd you do, hit an officer?

- Flyboy major in a bar.

Over a woman?

No, he kept bustin' off about

our advisor policy in Central America.

I told him I didn't wanna hear any more,

he kept talkin', I dropped him.

- Why didn't you just walk away?

- You get them stripes from walking away?

There you go, Sergeant.

His name is Henke.

Here's his papers. You got orders,

per diem and tickets in there.

You got a MAC flight out of here,

commercial out of Frankfurt.

Turn him over to the provost marshal

at Belvoir. He is all yours.

Give me the keys.

If I were you, I'd keep

the cuffs on that prick, Sarge.

- You ain't him, shithead.

- Timmons, leave it alone.

- Forget it.

- Any time.

- Hold it, hold it!

- Goddamn!

Get the f*ck outta here.
