I left this place

a thousand times in my mind,

but I never

actually went anywhere.

What was the final straw?

I had nothing.


the unsupportive family.

No, I don't give a crap

if that's what she wants.

She's not gonna sit

in my goddamn house

and do nothing!

The dead-end job.

The getting fired

from the dead-end job

for being hung over.


This isn't working.

I get it.

Megan, it's just you don't

really connect with people

very well.

I'm sorry to be the one

to tell you this.

No, no, no, it's fine.


Let's go, kids.

Let's go!

In the end, you don't leave

because you have

somewhere to go.

Don't hit your brother.

You leave because

there's nothing

keeping you there.

All I know is that

after my best friend died,

there was nothing left

for me here.

I checked out of life


And I realized

if I didn't leave now--

-oh, sh*t.

-I wasn't gonna be

far behind him.

Due to heightened

security measures,

please keep bags with you

at all times.

All unaccompanied luggage

will be confiscated.



Uh, what is this pamphlet

for the marines

that I found in your dresser?

Think there's some pot

left in the sock drawer

if you keep digging.

Yeah, don't be a wise-ass.

This is my house.

And just so you know,

running away

isn't gonna solve anything.

- Hang up that phone!

- Let's go!

Let's go! Move!

Move, move, move!

Let's go! Faster!

Come on! Move, move!

Tuck in that shirt!


Tuck your shirt in!

- Fix your hair!

Get in line! Move!

You have taken the first step

in becoming a member of the

world's finest fighting force,

the United States

marine corps.

Tens of thousands of marines

have begun outstanding service

for our country

starting right here.

You will continue

that proud tradition.

Do you understand?

Aye-aye, sir!

Say it like you mean it.

Do you understand?

Yes, sir!

Right now! Right now!

When I tell you

you better move,

you better move!

Marine corps!


an embarrassment!

-Here we go!

-I said three! Leavey, step up!

- Come on!

- Come on now!

Get off my wall!

I can make it!

Get off my rope

and get to the back of the line.

Get those arms straight, leavey!

Get those arms straight!

I want straight arms!

You're gonna die out there!

You hear me?

Have fun

after graduation!

You're a failure.

Get out of my face.

Forward, march!

Left! Left!

Left, left, left!

Left! Forward, march!

Left! Left!

Ready! Front!

Platoon 5004 dismissed!

Aye-aye, ma'am!



Oh, hi.

Hi! We made it!

Well, you didn't.

You actually missed it,


Oh, you look like

a little toy soldier.

Great. Thanks.

You missed it,

the whole ceremony.

But that's okay.


Yeah. It's over.

J-- Jim,

well, he really wanted

to see you graduate.

Geez, you'd think

with all the taxes

we give to the military,

they'd come up

with some kind of

street sign situation.

Hey, sport.



we missed it.

We missed it?


Can you do it again

for us?

The United States will not

and cannot run that risk

to the American people.

Leaving Saddam Hussein

in possession of weapons

of mass destruction

for a few more

months and years

is not an option.

Well, you don't look terrible.


No, I mean,

i thought they were gonna

make you all gi Jane.

You know, no hair.

Hey, could we

get the check, please?

You got it.

I just don't know why you wanna do this.

Yeah, I know you don't.

So no one else came today?

No. Dad couldn't

get off work,

so lay off.

I'm not talking bad about him,

although he does owe me
