[ Man On Radio ] Ghost Two,

this is Echo One. Ghost Two, this is Echo One.

E. T.A. :
: Four minutes.

: Four minutes.

- [ Both Grunting ]

- [ Man Shouting In Foreign Language ]

[ Continues In Foreign Language ]

Intel confirmed.

Nine hostiles, three marines.

[ Man On Radio ] Ghost Two, you are not

to engage. Alpha Team is on its way.

No time.

[ Shouting In Foreign Language ]

[ Yelling ]

- You guys ready to go home?

- Yeah.

- How do we get around 'em?

- We don't.

We go through 'em.

[ Soldiers Shouting In Distance ]

[ Man ]

Atten-hut.! Look sharp, marine.

As you were, gentlemen.

- Triton.

- Sir?

Outside. Ten minutes.

Yes, sir.

[ Man ] We've approached

this thing from every angle.

The judge advocate's done

hearing your case.

- What about an appeal?

- They're not accepting more appeals.

Bottom line is, you disobeyed a direct order.

You're being discharged.

You served your unit, your corps

and your country with honor, son.

Walk away with dignity.


I'm a marine.

One of the best. Remember that.

On behalf of a grateful nation

and the United States Marine Corps...

I thank you for your loyal service.

- Thank you.

- Oh!

You're home.

- You all right?

- Yeah.

Yeah, I just- I can't believe you're here.

You know, the hardest thing...

about you leaving was not knowing.

You know, not knowing

where you were...

not knowing if you're coming home...

not knowing if I'm gonna get

that phone call saying that you wouldn't be.

You married a marine, Kate.

I know it's not gonna be

easy for you, John.

We'll figure it out together.

I'm home now, and I'm not goin' anywhere.

Good. And speaking of that...

are you sure about

starting this job tomorrow?

- Oh!

- I just think there's so many

other things you could be doing.

If I sat around here all day, I'd go insane.

I just want you to be happy, John.

I am happy. Come on.

- Oh! Geez. Where are we going?

- To make me happy.

- I'll be right back.

- [ Cuban Accent ] You got it, man.


You got it, man.

You know, Scarface. Come on.

Do it again.

Okay. You got it, man.

Wow. That's horrible.

[ No Audible Dialogue ]

- How you doing?

- Fine, sir.

Excuse me.

[ Customers Screaming, Gasping ]

Everybody down.

Everybody on the ground, now!

Ladies and gentlemen,

keep your heads down and your mouths shut.

I don't wanna see any eye contact.

I have severe intimacy issues and a gun...

so do yourselves a favor

and don't look up.

What I want is on

the other side of this door...

but that's gonna be a little tricky

because... it's bulletproof.

So here's how we're gonna do it.

Hi, honey. Can I borrow you for a second?

[ Screaming ]

- How you doin' in there, sport?

- [ Woman ] Oh, God.! Please.!

Oh, don't look at him.

He can't help you.

Please! I have children!

I don't think he cares.


[ Screams ]

[ Beeping ]

Fill it.

Get down!

Thank you.


You gotta hit me.

It's gotta look real-

For the cops.

That's real.

Well, the cops are comin'.

I'd love to stay and chat,

but, uh, I can't.

I apologize for that little

outburst of anger I showed earlier.

That's really more for dramatic purposes

than anything else.

I hope that what I've done here today

doesn't force you to have...

a negative opinion of me or how you think

I feel about the great state of South Carolina.

'Cause I love it here. I do.

I love the people.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

[ Sirens Wailing In Distance ]

What? Too much?

[ Tires Screeching ]



We know how they got in here.

Once they're in, they don't bother

with any small stuff.
