- Very good, sir.

How's that bouillabaisse?

Heads up!

If I'm not mistaken...

...every one of you has orders

to report to the mess deck...

...for the party.

Stand fast.

Everyone else go! Now.

See you at the party.

You know...

...this does look delicious.

It smells like a lard omelet.

I put up with your sh*t...

...because the captain likes

your cooking.

But this time he won't be here

to save you.

Is that right?

Little flavor.

You like that?

That's striking an officer!

It is not!

That's striking an officer!

- Okay! All right!

- Cuff him and throw him in the brig!

- In the brig!

- You need the old man's signature.

Good point.

Secure him in the meat locker.


Right now!

Let's go.

Now I know why you're a cook.

You hit like a f*ggot.


Private Nash...

...you came on board in Hawaii?

- Yes, sir.

Then you don't know about Ryback?

He is an extreme psychopath.

He hates officers.

He hates America.

This is the captain's birthday.

I don't want him ruining it.

No one speaks to him

or lets him out.

If he tries to escape,

shoot him right here.

I'm counting on you.

Yes, sir.

Let's go.

Another cold day in hell.

It speaks well for the Navy

that we can entertain a ship at sea.

It's so human.

And I love that. Don't you?

I just hope I don't throw up.

You'll be fine.

I love it. I love it!

Welcome to the USS Missouri.


We're looking forward

to a great time.

I love this business!

My future wife.

She's landed.

The Bunny's landed. See you.


Doesn't it seem strange

that Krill put me in here?

I ain't listening to you.

Welcome aboard.

Guys, make a hole.

Don't let them bother you.

Been at sea too long. You okay?

I still feel really queasy.

We'll go to the wardroom,

where you can change.
