You want a mirror?

Nate?

Yes

In what are you thinking?

That stray dog that usually hang around here.

We've called animal control about fifteen times.

Promise me food when I go away.

Do not want no bum.

When you get back I'll get you a real dog.

In the pet store.

What?

Maybe I should let them do it.

Look, when you look at the recruiter,

will know that you are serious.

Are you sure about this, right?

When you are ready.

I think I am.

When you are sure tells me to stand up.

Very good. Stand up!

Hurry up!

Do not tell!

Faster!

My boy from the army.

Damn!

The book only tells you what to do if you do not want a boy.

I do not think it matters.

O God! If I got pregnant and a girl is gonna be so screwed!

You came up, right?

Do not feel?

Perhaps we should try again before they come home.

Trish...

I think I need a little time, ok?

You'll never be alone, dear. Never!

Do not forget that.

I know you're nervous, ok?

And I know that sounds like a great thing,

but deep down it is not!

Do not forget that, dear.

It's just a small world.

I can not find my shoes.

I'll be late.

BMG:

Hello! Mark Dessau, please.

Who are you talking about?

Nobody!

What?

I considered calling my father before leaving, that's it!

He never even sent you a birthday card.

Why do you think he cares that you are going to recruit?

I thought that maybe he could finally meet him...

try to move on with my life ahead.

Why?

To tell you what?

You used to repair cars until you give up?

Or that you pulled back from school

Community because you could not take it easy?

Look...

just...

wait until you leave the house your mother.

Wait until you get something on your own.

Then call him and appeared to him in uniform

and he will be sorry to have you abandoned.

You think?

If you connect to your father as

you think your mother will feel Nate?

Nathan!

Would make a decent breakfast.

Well at least I got you this parting gift.

'd Send you wrap, but...

but had no time to do it all

Cute as they do at the mall.

It's plastic?

It's barbecue on July 4.

Remember?

Rays. I look so fat there.

The period and some margarita.

I love it!

Would give you an empty frame and

let you put the picture you wanted, but...

Everyone knows that.

I have all my photos here.

Yeah, well...

I thought that you would help

remember what is important and for which he fights.

I love mom!

Really.

Thanks.

C'mon then.

Let's do not want to start

melt on my uniform.

You have your bags made?

So...

whom shall I call when my car breaks down?

Gene's better than me on this, he helps her.

Yeah!

If you do not die tomorrow.

Hey Gene!

If you want to ride to the clinic

you'll have to put deodorant!

I will not have a pig in the car!

Poor crazy, drink up and near death

calls it post-traumatic disorientation.

Maybe.

Yeah, right!

Whatever.

I can not afford to lose a

tenant with a monthly annuity check.

God! Do not want to end this way.

Yes

It will be difficult.

And you'll want to quit.

But only do your best darling.

I'm scared.

Sure you are.

Sure you are.

But...

no...

Do not say it out loud, or people get to know.

They'll think you're a coward.

Nate, I think the recruiter has arrived!

Today is the big day, huh?

You should be nervous, eh?

I remember when I went to training camp.

The first thing I did was get a hooker.

I do not need a bitch, I'm Trish.

Are you going to Camp Edelton?

I will.

And after training at Twilight Palms.

I'm still not sure.

Twilight Palms I've been on for years.

There was not much to do there but drink and f*ck.
