Army Rangers have a proud history.

Since the 1700s, Rangers have led

the way in every major confrontation...

in which the United States

has been involved.

You men are a credit to that fine

heritage, and I'm sorry to see you go.

But you've served your country well, and

you've displayed the ability to fight on...

to the Ranger objective

and complete its mission:

never leaving behind a fallen comrade

no matter what the odds or the enemy.

I thank you.

America thanks you.

And I wish you luck wherever you go.

And remember, Rangers lead the way.

- Hi, Tricia.

- Hey.

- Hey, Tricia Poe.

- Hello, Dale.

How do I

Get through one night

without you

If I had to live

without you

What kind of life

would that be

Oh, I

I need you in my arms

Need you to hold

- Hummingbird.

- Hi.

- You're my world, my heart and soul

- Look at you.

I'd take a beatin' half my life

to get a piece of that woman.

- How's my baby?

- She's doin' fine.

- Baby, you would take away everything

- Yeah?

- Good in my life

- What? You're kidding me!

- What?

- Sweetie?

Hey, shh. Can't you see I'm in

the middle of somethin' here? What?

- How do I live without you

- You, you gonna be Miss Alabama?

Well, that makes your daddy

very proud.

Oh, I know

How do I breathe without you

If you ever go

Tricia Poe!

You little angel, you.

Hey, how about joinin' me

and the boys for a cold one?

- Huh, darlin'?

- No, thanks.

Who's your

Captain Huckleberry here?

- You know this gentleman, honey?

- He's a regular.

Yeah, I'm a regular.

Huh. Regular hound dog.

This is a special occasion, and if you don't

mind, I'd like to spend it dancin' with my wife.

Tell you what, soldier Dick. Why don't

you go buy me and my buddies a round?

Hey, Cameron, no.

It ain't worth it.

Hey. Come on, Daddy.

Let's dance.

Oh, chickenshit!

'Cause of pussies like you,

we lost Vietnam. I'll tell ya that.

- We don't need trouble.

- Oh, you should be so proud.

You know, for a second there

you were that guy again.

I know it.

Well, I was hopin' maybe the army

would make that guy grow up.

Well-

- He has.

- Then tell me now

How do I live

without you

I want to know

How do I breathe

without you

If you ever go

Hey, Gomer!

Thought you might need a little help

escortin' your old lady home.

Cameron, let's go home.

Just get in the car.

- Come on.

- Cameron!

Cameron, get in the car!

Dale! Dale!

Take this,

you son of a bitch!

Tricia!

God, he's dead.

Cameron, this guy's dead.

Admit the facts,

and enter a plea bargain.

I will not plead guilty.

You could get ten years.

Admit to it,

you get four.

Serve maybe a year.

Cameron Poe, you have pleaded guilty

to manslaughter in the first degree.

With your military skills,

you are a deadly weapon...

and are not subject to the same laws

as other people that are provoked...

because you can respond

with deadly force.

It is the order of this court that you

be remanded to a federal penitentiary...

where you shall remain incarcerated

for a term not less than 7 to 10 years.

"Con Air"

action-thriller, USA, 1997

Hello, pretty girl.

Come, come. Bring it here. Hey! Hey!

Dearest Tricia, I think of you always.

Your smile, your laugh.

I'm not angry. The blame's

gotta fall on me.

I am, however, torn apart

when I think that I won't...

be there to see our child

come into the world...

cradled in your arms,

and her first smile.

I got your package.

Those pink coconut things...

have made me quite popular.

Met a guy just the other day.

Baby-O. He sure does love 'em.

And now our daughter, beautiful Casey.
