All units, report!

Report! Somebody answer the damn radio!

Sir, it's inside!

Initiate scenario D.

Central Command, confirm!

Initiate scenario D. Confirm!

Tell me you'll remember

everything I've told you, Frank.

I'll remember, Mom.

Sit still. Don't be such a baby.

Do you act this way at the doctor's office?

They've tapped our phones.

Your father's working for them.

- Don't you understand?

- Mom, you're hurting me. Please, stop it.

Look at your hands.

Let it burn into your memory, Frank.

Look at them. Tell me you'll never forget.

I won't.

- For the rest of your life. Promise me!

- I promise.

- Say it back to me. What did I tell you?

- Sublevel 3, Vault 12.

That's a good little man.

Eyes shut. Bedtime.

Mommy, no!

That's the way you want it? Come on.

Let's see it.

- Daddy! Daddy!

- Son, get to bed!

Crazy bitch! Give me that!

Excuse me. Sir, excuse me.

Do you know where Fort Lambert is? Sir!

He can't hear you. He's hearing impaired.

Do you know where Fort Lambert is?

Fort Lambert, the Army base?

- She knows.

- Can she point the way?

Kazzy. Inside, now.

Sir, do you know where Fort Lambert is?

- Can I help you, sir?

- Yeah...

- Can I see your base commander?

- Do you have an appointment?

I tried.

You know the Army.

I mean, it's like you need a chain saw

to cut through the red tape.

But your... Your CO is

Colonel Turner, right?

Look, I know this sounds kind of crazy,

but could you tell him that I'm here, that...

That Frank Sears is here to see him?

I'll only take five minutes of his time.

I drove... I drove 36 hours

straight from New Jersey to get here today.

Sir, if you have no authorized business,

I'm gonna ask you to turn around

and be on your way.

Sir, you have 10 seconds to move out,

or we do the moving for you.

Get a life, douchebag.

Do you ever feel guilty?

Here we are, sweeping up trash,

while the guys overseas are getting shot at.

Well, I would be happy to sign you up

for a combat rotation, Zaremba.

- You like falafel, right?

- Sure.

If you worked your back

as much as your mouth,

this job would have been done last week.


Check out that room.

Radiation below threshold, zero bio.

Toxicity clear.

Pull everything from these three rooms.

I'll take these items to TTL.

We fought for decades

to keep Fort Lambert open

as a working Army installation.

This time, we didn't make the cut.

Look at your hands.

Let it burn into your memory, Frank.

Look at them. Tell me you'll never forget.

... have announced their intentions

to build a gambling casino on the site.

Does the country not yet have

enough places for hardworking people

to fritter away their life savings

while drinking themselves into oblivion?

The siting of a world-class casino operation

in a rural area such as Bennell

has lifted the economic boats

of all citizens of the region.

Glenn, I'm on my way down.


We are scheduled to complete

Abatement Phase 3 today,

and now you're telling me

you want another 36 hours.



My task is to certify the property

free of hazardous substances.

There's 50 years of accumulation

and incomplete record-keeping.

I can't predict what we're gonna find,

or how long it's gonna take.

Well, so far, you've turned up

a quart of moonshine whiskey

and three chemicals

found in any transmission shop.

That's no predictor of

what else might be here.

This property reverts to the

Cochiti tribe once we've finished.

Does the Army want some Indian kid

to dig up a contaminated vial and get sick?

Demolition's scheduled to commence

Friday at 0701 hours.

Richard Jefferies

John Richard Jefferies (6 November 1848 – 14 August 1887) was an English nature writer, noted for his depiction of English rural life in essays, books of natural history, and novels. His childhood on a small Wiltshire farm had a great influence on him and provides the background to all his major works of fiction. Jefferies's corpus of writings includes a diversity of genres and topics, including Bevis (1882), a classic children's book, and After London (1885), an early work of science fiction. For much of his adult life, he suffered from tuberculosis, and his struggles with the illness and with poverty also play a role in his writing. Jefferies valued and cultivated an intensity of feeling in his experience of the world around him, a cultivation that he describes in detail in The Story of My Heart (1883). This work, an introspective depiction of his thoughts and feelings on the world, gained him the reputation of a nature mystic at the time. But it is his success in conveying his awareness of nature and people within it, both in his fiction and in essay collections such as The Amateur Poacher (1879) and Round About a Great Estate (1880), that has drawn most admirers. Walter Besant wrote of his reaction on first reading Jefferies: "Why, we must have been blind all our lives; here were the most wonderful things possible going on under our very noses, but we saw them not." more…
