You know, I remember the first

time I set foot in Africa.

Thought I'd hate it

just like Iraq, you know?

Figured, it's just more fucking

sand to kill each other over.

But I was wrong.

It was the most beautiful place

I ever seen.

Took my fucking breath away.

Then I signed with red mountain

after my second tour.

You know they offered

four times what the army paid?

Better equipment,

choose your deployments.

My family's piss-poor,

so I thought I hit the lottery.

You know? Get rich to make

the world safe?

Fuck yeah.

Yeah, so much for that.

Get us out of here!

Shit!

- Go, back it up!

- Get us out of here!

Fuck.

Aah!

Are you alive?

Yeah, I'm alive.

Fuck.

There you go.

I hope that's not

the bait knife.

The fish hate you, you know.

You think?

Yeah. Fish like older men.

If you read more,

you'd know about these things.

And because they hate you,

we haven't caught anything.

Now, why is it

they hate me, exactly?

Animals in the natural world

are drawn to the souls of men.

They can see the light

that emits from inside us.

Well, is this a theory,

or something you read, or...?

Yeah, in a book in the library.

Library.

You've never been

to the fucking library.

It's called

shamanistic spirit animals.

My point is, you've got no soul.

And there's no light inside,

and they know that.

They see it.

They smell it.

But fish can't smell.

You are drunker than me, frank.

Are you ready to do this?

No.

I can't believe

it's been a year.

At least they're together.

Yeah.

Yeah.

- You know...

- What?

The shortest distance

between two points

is a straight line.

Yeah.

That's brilliant.

Why are we not doing it?

We made it.

Shit.

We left the couch on the beach.

Where are you going to sleep?

I'll sleep on the floor.

That's because

you're such a hard ass.

No, it's because...

Because I love your rug.

Want some water?

All rivers run into the sea

if the sea is not full.

Good night, frank.

Where are you going?

I'm going to...

Go for a walk.

Travis?

They loved you.

Don't forget that.

Thanks, man.

Do me a favor,

don't do it out here.

Wouldn't dream of it.

Hey, daddy.

You liking the girls tonight?

I don't go to strip clubs.

I got a wife and kid.

Hey! The door is jammed.

Somebody open the door!

Hold on a second.

Hold on, I got it, I got it.

Here, take this.

What the fuck?

Open this door!

Come on, open it!

Hold on, I got it.

All right, just give me a sec.

Come on, open it!

Open it!

I got it.

Hold on, hold on.

Here you are.

Here you go. Open up...

Can I help you guys?

We're red mountain!

We're supposed to find you.

Jim morrow sent us.

I told Jim I'm on hiatus.

What the fuck?

It's some kind of emergency.

It's always an emergency

with you guys.

Jesus Christ.

Shake them titties.

You know, they were

my best guys.

I'm not impressed.

So, you don't call,

blow off my checks.

You know, I feel like

a prom date the day after.

Well, I told you,

I'm on hiatus, you know?

I know. I know.

So, what do you want?

I want you to have a drink.

Try a peanut.

They're great.

I want you to put a pin in your

vacation for a couple days.

I need you to kill

somebody for us.

You do that for me,

zip back here

and resume your reflection.

Just call me on Monday

when I'm back?

It can't wait till Monday.

Then get somebody else.

You really need me

to say it?

You want to hear it?

Okay.

Red don't want nobody else.

They want you.

They want the best.

How about that?

Still tough shit.

I don't work for anybody.

I'm an independent contractor.

Yeah.

Like you used to be.
