Yes, sir. I will do that.

Urgent. Urgent.

Where's Lin? Lin Braddock?

She left.

You know where she went?

I don't know.

Lin...

is your man really

take you to America?

Yes, of course.

What about all this?

I can't take everything.

What about this?

Yes. Take it.

Take anything you want.

Stay back! Stay back!

I can't let you in!

Please disperse.

We can't help you all.

We have no room!

Captain, has a Lin Braddock

come through the gate?

If you work for the Embassy,

have your papers ready!

Not yet, Colonel.

You're a friend of Lin?

I'm her husband.

She went to her home.

When?

One hour, maybe two.

She had to get her papers.

Please disperse!

The dress is so beautiful.

Thank you.

Good-bye, Min. Take care.

Bye.

Hold it.

We found her upstairs.

You know her?

Guess what I've got.

All right. Hit it.

Roger.

I said

get the hell off of there!

I'm Lin Braddock!

Look at the list!

I work for the Embassy!

Lin Braddock!

Captain!

What is it?

She says she's on the list.

What name?

Lin Braddock!

I'm a translator

for the embassy!

Give me your papers.

I lost them!

They stole it!

Please! Look at the list!

I need your papers!

I told you! Somebody stole them!

Oh, God! You have to believe me!

Well, there's nothing

I can do about that.

Please! Lin!

Look at the list!

This morning there was

a Colonel Braddock.

Is Colonel Braddock

your husband?

Yes! Yes!

For crying out loud!

These people are crazy!

Get them down!

Shoot them! Get it together!

Grab the seal.

Step aside! Move!

Come on, Junior.

Get these folks out!

Get off me!

Get out of the way!

Move! Stand aside!

Let's go!

Please!

Wait! Please!

Please!

Commander, please.

I give you

a thousand dollar.

Please. I love America.

Come on.

Hey.

Let me go up.

Let me go!

OK. Take off.

Son of a b*tch!

Don't worry.

We got you, Colonel!

That bastard was probably V.C.

All right.

There you go, Colonel.

All right.

Move them out. Move!

No medals, no ribbons

No welcome parade

It's a lonely road home

And a heavy price to pay

Now I say a prayer

For those that remain

And I wonder

Will they ever

find freedom again?

- Hi, Cindy.

- Hey.

I should run for president.

What'd you say?

I didn't think he needed to.

Oh, really?

Mr. Braddock?

That's right.

Colonel James Braddock?

What can I do for you?

Could I have a few

moments of your time?

- Sit down.

- Thank you.

Please, uh...

could we please talk

more privately?

Yeah. Sure.

Thank you.

Would you like

something to drink?

No, no. Thank you.

I am Reverend Polanski...

from the Amerasian Children's

Mission in Vietnam.

Occasionally,

I come to this country...

to raise funds for the mission.

I was hoping I could

find you before I went back.

Find me? Why?

About a year ago,

a young Amerasian child...

came to the mission

begging for help.

He told me that

his mother was sick.

I went to see if there

was anything I could do...

and found out she worked

for the U.S. Embassy...

during the war.

She has been severely punished

by the Vietnamese government.

Having the half-American

son has made things...

even worse for her.

I'm sorry to hear that, but...

what's that

got to do with me?

The woman's married name

is Mrs. James Braddock.

What did you say?

I'm talking about

your wife, Mr. Braddock.

Lin Tan Cang.

You're mistaken.

No. There is no mistake.

My wife died during

the fall of Saigon.

Your wife is alive.

I know her quite well.

Your son's name is Van.

He's now 12 years old.

My wife and I didn't have a son.

Why is it so hard

for you to believe me?

Because I saw my wife's body

burned to a crisp, that's why.

You may have seen a body...

but it wasn't your wife.

Lin Tan Cang is alive!

Believe whatever

you want, Reverend.

I know better.

Your few moments are up.

Oh, they had this great

place in Georgetown.

Really nice.

Yeah, of course.

I saw it last week.

Even if you did believe me...

I doubt if there

is anything you could do.

I've already gone

to the State Department...

and they will do nothing...

but I had to let you know.

Good-bye, Mr. Braddock.

God be with you.

Braddock?

C.I.A.

Please come with us.

Wait outside.

It's been a long time,

Colonel Braddock.

How have you been?

You know how I've

been, Littlejohn.

Now, what do you want?

You just met with

a Reverend Polanski.

So?

Did he tell you

some kind of...

crazy story about

your wife being alive?

Is it a crazy story?

Of course it is.

Big mistake, Littlejohn.

I didn't believe it until now.

What are you going to do

about getting them out?

Nothing.

If I don't get them out...

they're going to die.

People die every day.

Braddock!

I'm warning you.

Don't step on any toes.

I don't step on toes,

Littlejohn.

I step on necks.

Welcome to Bangkok.

We hope you enjoyed

your flight...

and will fly

with Thai Airlines again.

Take me downtown.

Now, look here, mate.

I said I need more room.

Now beat it!

Whoo! You take me home.

You want to try knocking me off?

How the hell are you, Braddock?

Did you get everything?

Yes, I got everything...

but it sure as hell wasn't easy.

That's why

I appreciate you, Mik.

That's what friends

are for, Braddock...

which reminds me.

Got my money?

Let's go.

No, no, no!

No need to hurry.

The plane won't be loaded

for several hours yet.

We got a long drive out of town.

Oh, sh*t. Here comes trouble.

Go get the car

and pull out front.

Ah, OK.

Hey.

You're not going

anywhere, Miklachek.

Take him to the car.

Jeez. Hey, where's

the rules about...

Hey, watch my beer,

man! Hey, listen.

I warned you, Braddock,

not to f*** with us.

Don't try to stop me,

Littlejohn.

You're stopped.

Come on.

Oh! Oh, my God!

Freeze, a**hole,

or you're dead!

Excuse me, girls.

Braddock!

Cut him off!

Braddock!

Braddock.

Stop right there.

Braddock! Wait!

Son of a b*tch.

You actually made it.

- Sh*t!

- Uh-oh.

Braddock!

He's getting away!

Hurry! Get in your cars!

Go after him! Hit it!

Oh, no!

Way to go, man!

Jesus, Braddock.

Couldn't you lighten up

just a teeny bit?

I mean, I got to live here.

You've got a one-way

ticket out.

Jesus, Braddock.

Watch it!

Whoa!

Oh, sh*t, Braddock.

We'll have the whole

damn police force after us.

How far is it

to the plane?

Uh, it's quite a ways

out of Bangkok.

No. It will be daylight

before we get there.

Hey, the boss is coming!

Don't hang around!

Why didn't you have

her going, man?

Let's go!

Come, come, come!

Are you sure this thing

will get off the ground?

Oh, relax, mother.

Sit back. Enjoy the ride.

It'll be just like Coney Island.

OK, Braddock...

are you gonna tell me

where we're going now?

As if I didn't know.

Along the coast.

Ganh Rai Bay.

We're gonna have to

skim the waves...

when we get there to

stay underneath their radar.

Hey, Braddock, you've

done some flying.

Why don't you take

the controls, eh?

Give me a rest.

Let's see if you can fly

as well as you can drive, eh?
