Half-hour dinner break.

70 wounded and 34 were missing.

I'm sorry. We're out of chicken salad.

Half mile south of the southern boundary

that separates North and South Vietnam.

In this last week in Vietnam...

...there are a reported 141 American dead...

...391 wounded, and 47 listed as missing.

Other news. In Washington

this afternoon, the Congressional...

Hey, Birdlace!

I want a girl just like this, man.


Back here!

Bring it back here now!

Damn you, Birdlace.

No, you don't. Back here to me.

It looks like a cartoon.

Stand by, men.

A**hole approaching, 11 o'clock.

Berzin, ladies...

This here is Fector.

He wanted to meet you.


How you guys hanging?

So, what can we do for you, Fector?

Donavin says you guys are sponsoring

a little get-together.

I want in, if it's okay.

I don't know, Fector.

We're a pretty elite group.

- What do you think, Birdlace?

- You know the rules?

You break the rules, you don't get your jing

back, not a f***ing dime. You got that?

Do you have anyone to bring

to this event, Fec-dork?

F***ing A, I got someone to bring.

Sounds pretty elite to me, guys.

What do you think, Benjamin?

Fector, you got the $50?

Sh*t. Looks like

an outstanding candidate to me.


How about that, Fector? Okie likes you.

In fact, we all like you.

That means you're in.

Festivities begin precisely at 1900.

You'll be there.

I'll be there in dress blues, tennis shoes,

and a fur-lined f***ing jockstrap.

Count on it.

Fector? Sounds more like "fective" to me.


Dumb motherf***er

still shitting boot camp chow.

Definitely. Roger that.

Twenty-two. That's the biggest ever.

We going to have us a time.

Yes, sir, we going to have

some kind of time.

Attention, passengers.

The bus to Santa Cruz has been canceled.

The bus from Los Angeles

will be 20 minutes late.

All right, men. Fall in.


One question, men.

- Are we a**holes or Marines?

- Sir, a**holes, sir!

- Wrong! We're Marines! What are we?

- Sir, Marines, sir!

And we are not just Marines.

We are the Four Bees. What are we?

Sir, the Four f***ing Bees. Aye, aye, sir!

The Four Bees have a special mission.

What's that mission?

To take no prisoners and not become one!

Out-f***ing-standing, men.

Muster at 1900.

Good hunting, gentlemen.

Fall out.

- Excuse me. Hi.

- Hi.

An older sister maybe?

Maggie. Debbie's really mad at you.

You're in big trouble this time. Excuse me.

Excuse me. I'm new in town.

I thought maybe we could see some sights.

The Golden Gate...

You slut.

Excuse me. I overheard you.

I'm new here, too. I've got a map.

Where do you want to go?

Gee, thanks, but...

I'm not interested.

I mean, no, I don't need your help.

I got to go.

- Where is he?

- You talking to me?

Yes, ma'am, now, where is he?

- Who?

- Your husband.

I don't have a husband.

- You don't have a husband?

- No.

Where's your boyfriend?

No boyfriend. What is it you want?

Are you a lesbian?

No, I'm not.

A pretty little thing like yourself

with no husband, no boyfriend...

You got to be a lesbian.

No, I'm just here by myself, that's all.

Not anymore. My name's Buell.

A lot of people call me Okie.

You can call me Okie.

Only if you wanted to.

Betty, hi!

Hey, I don't know you.

What do you mean you don't know me?

We've been writing to each other

for seven months.

I said I'd meet you here?

Betty, it's me Sam, Sam Benjamin.

I'm not Betty. I'm Ruth Two Bears.

What do you mean?

You look just like Betty... Betty Lynx Leg.

Jesus, this...

Jesus, this is really very embarrassing.

I'm sorry, Ruth.
