What time did you get

in last night?

Late.

You were snoring.

Hmm.

I don't snore.

You do when you're stressed.

He goes back to school today.

They'll catch who did it.

He could have been killed.

Probably some stoned kids

being stupid with daddy's gun.

Looks good to me.

It's tragic.

I don't know when that happened.

Oh well.

Hey.

Don't worry.

I'll talk to him today.

I wish he'd talk to me.

He's been so quiet.

Teenagers don't talk

to their parents.

They have a code of silence.

He'll be fine.

Last call

for flight 306...

Hey bud, you awake

in there?

Funny.

Funny, dad.

Hey, uh... so, is gramps

gonna have a open casket?

Closed casket.

Why don't we just roast him?

Oh, that's lovely.

It's called cremation.

And no, he's going to be buried

next to your grandmother.

I think that gramps would

like to have a viking funeral.

Viking?

Yeah.

I mean, he loved that stuff.

Like, you just, like,

put him on his boat and...

And light it on fire and,

you know,

send it out into the ocean.

Hey, there's an idea.

That's one way to get rid of

your boat.

Hey, drive him to school today?

I was planning on it.

Love you.

Love you too.

You working late?

I hope not.

You need to start thinking

about that eulogy.

I know, I will.

I'm ready when you are.

Oh, shit.

Dad, it- it doesn't matter,

really.

Dad, come on.

Alright.

I have an idea.

What if I kept the boat?

Yeah, why not?

You live in the boat and I use

your bedroom as

my second office.

- Fine with me.

I'm joking.

Come on, we're gonna be late.

You ok?

Yeah.

See you later.

Hey, uh...

Anytime you wanna talk,

we're here for you.

Ok, bud?

Yeah, I know.

Thanks.

Thanks, dad.

See ya later-

sir, let's see

some identification.

Badger, tower one.

We have confirmation target

has left the nest.

Roger that, tower one.

We're ten clicks away.

Badger, target has picked up

the package.

Wait a sec.

Shit.

Tower one, badger,

we lost the link.

Badger. Tower one, abort?

Negative, tower one.

Third time this month.

Every time I'm back...

Re-acquiring a link.

It's gonna be tight.

Tower one, badger,

we're back up.

Target

traveling north towards

the main straightaway.

Speed, altitude,

heading all good.

Targeting.

Target locked and we are

on the straightaway.

Tower one, badger,

are we clear to fire?

Badger,

tower one, Roger that.

You are clear to fire.

Take the shot.

Three, two, one.

Rifle.

Impact in ten seconds.

Holding target.

Five, four, three, two...

Splat.

Tower one, badger,

partial hit on target.

Confirming kill.

Wait, I think- I think

i see movement.

Wow, would you look at that.

That's one tough dune coon.

Tower one, badger,

kill is not confirmed.

Repeat, kill is not confirmed.

Permission to fire

second hellfire. Over.

Affirmative, badger.

10-4.

Still locked.

Three, two, one.

Rifle.

Are you gonna be allowed out

of the house this weekend?

I'm busy with the funeral.

Oh, Christ.

I'm sorry, I forgot.

It's ok.

Have you ever written

a eulogy?

Yeah, actually I have.

For my uncle stu's funeral.

It did not go well.

Why, what happened?

I don't- just- ok.

He was kind of a miserable guy

and, you know, he took it out

on his wife and his kids

and everybody,

including me, so I said f*ck it,

I just got up there

and told it like it was.

It was fucking hilarious.

So...

Were you born an asshole,

Gary?

Quite possibly, yeah.

Look, you're gonna be fine.

Your dad was a stand up guy.

Yeah, but how do you condense

a man's entire life

into five minutes? Huh?

There's probably an app

for that, right?
