James Dean was the man.

Everything he did was cool.

The way he walked was cool.

The way he talked was cool.

The way he smoked

cigarettes was the coolest.

Can you imagine

James Dean smoking

one of these f***ing things?

Absolutely no cool factor,

you know what I'm saying?

You must be... Roy Boyle, right?

Well, this is a good day.

I was hoping

I'd get a chance to meet you.

Say you used to be something

back in the day.

I mean, personally...

no offense,

- but Just don't see it man.

- Alright, man.

Let's do this thing.

Yeah, nice to meet you, too.

Bloody Sunday, redefined,

Rips across these

county lines

With my home sweet Caroline

on my mind

Bullets fly as in

run and scream

Darkness like

I have never seen

So I close my eyes

and pray it's all a dream

Ooh, ooh, ooh

So I close my eyes

and pray it's all a dream

So take me back to Caroline

Oh, take me home

to Southern Pride

The only flag that

waves above us

Is the one with

stars and stripes

Oh, take me back

to my own home

For God and country

to my bones

Take me back, sweet Caroline,

I'm coming home

Sleepless night in

the morning song

Hope I stayed way too long

Now it's here,

and we're all Caroline Strong

Ooh, ooh, ooh

Mama told me

When I was young

She sat beside me

"My only son"

"Listen closely

To what I say"

"If you do this,

it'll help you some sunny day"

Oh take your time

Don't leap too fast

Troubles will come

And they will past

God, I wish there was

something I could do.

Oh, I forgot to tell you.

The other night,

a couple nights ago,

I saw a shooting star

and I made a wish

that I could

take all of your pain

and bury it in the sand.

That's what I wish for.

Oh, no.

I said it out loud!

Now it's not gonna come true!

Oh, crap.

Hey, you must be real

proud wearing those dog tags.

They're so shiny.


Hey, guess what today is.

Uh, uh... ls it your birthday?

No, it's not my birthday.

It's Friday,

which means China Doll's

having her famous dumplings.

I swear to God

I can smell them from here.

You... you said you

liked that smell, right?

Yeah. I love it, yeah.

Roy, come on!

If we miss out,

we'll have to wait another week!

And yet,

another American soldier

has crossed the

border to join forces

with the extreme radical

terrorist group

known as the D-Tag.

Making him the 13th

American soldier

to engage with the group.

The soldier's identity

is currently being

kept confidential

for the safety of his family.


the "Death-To-All" group

have claimed responsibility

for the latest beheading video

of photojournalist

Taja Raj of Sweden.

A lot of people

called it prison

When I was growing up

How's it going Eddie,

how the hell are you man?

Cause everybody knows

me and I know them

And I believe that's the way

we were supposed to live

I wouldn't trade

one single day

What the hell's

going on, grease monkey?

Grease monkey?

What's up, white lightning?

Come on man, you been

a lil out of shape because

you lost some money to

me the other night? Come on.

Oh, I keep in that.

Yeah, right.

There's no way, man.

I am the chess master.

You know what you should do?

You should go back

and play checkers, man.

That's more your IQ.

Listen man, I think I'm doing

pretty good against you.

I'd say we're about 50/50.

But you know,

any time you want to switch off

and play a little rummy.


I don't play rummy

when you play rummy,

not that

penny a point Michigan rummy.

That's too much work man

for no pay off, come on.

Hey listen man,

I'm hitting on down the diner,

get something to eat.

You want something?

No, no, no. I got to finish this

for Larry, man.

He had a bingo jackpot

last night

and now he's got some cash.

So, I'm going to get some of it.

If you don't mind,

I get back to work?

Ah, we got some money,

then you can pay me back that

20 bucks he keeps on borrowing.

Not my problem.

I catch you around, man.

I'll be here.

- I'll see you tonight.

- That's a possibility.

Okay, here we are!

Have a very good day.

I love you very much.

I love you too.

If you ain't ever

took a ride around

And cruised right through

the heart of my town

Anything you say

would be a lie

Ms. Scholar, let me help you!

Oh, that would be

awesome Cassandra.

But that don't mean

I wouldn't be proud to show ya

Where I come from

There's an old farm boy

out turning up dirt

Where I come from

There's a preacher man

in a cowboy shirt

Where I come from

When a couple of boys

fight in the parking lot

No, nobody's gonna

call the cops

Where I come from

Let's go, come here.

See that door right

there, man I swear

It ain't ever been locked

And I guarantee

that it never will

That old man right there

in the rocking chair

At the courthouse square

I'll tell you now

He could buy your fancy car

with hundred dollar bills

More coffee, deputy?

Yes please, to-go.

I need another dumpling too.


Oh, you like Suzie's dumplings!

See Kenny? You're a lucky man.

Everybody loves my dumplings.

Of course they like

your damn dumplings,

that's the only thing

you know how to cook.

And don't you got a damn cat

or something to save in a tree'?

Suzie, you're gonna get us

both in trouble now.

Oh, don't worry. Husband no fun.

Hey, how you doing guys?

- Oh, morning Sheriff.

- Morning, Sheriff.

You here for some of

Suzie 's dumplings too?
