Hey, Kathy.

You're in a hurry.

Where's the fire?


- Hey, Mare.

- Hey.

Transfer come through?


You'll find something, hon.


- Hey boys.

- Hey

Hey, why don't you guys go inside,

and your mom, Okey?

All right?

Marie asked me to bring this.

Erin around?

It's nice to see you too, Kath.

Yes, right.

You can't hold this against me.

I gave you plenty of warning on this.

It's not my fault you're married

to that job of yours.

You just sprung this on me, what...

look, I'm not going

to do this in front of Erin, okay.

Where is she? Erin?

And actually I'm not married

to my job.

I happen to like it.

I don't see why that

has to make me a bad mother.

Well, it's not my fault the judge

didn't see it that way, Kath.

Thanks, Kyle,

thank you for bringing that up.

Look, I told you,

you're welcome

to come down to Dalton

It's really simple for me,

you know, I've just got to

clear my mortgage,

find a transfer,

you know, really a piece of cake.

Hey, sweetie.

How's it going?

Come here. Oh.

- Come here.

- No, Kyle, it's fragile.

- How am I supposed to know?

- Hi, Marie. How's it going?

I brought the camping gear.

Thank you.

- Why don't you label them...

- Marie scares me.

I'll tell you a secret.

She scares me too.

Don't tell anyone.

You okay?

Uh huh.

Tell me.

When are you coming?

Sweetie, I'm having a really hard time

finding a transfer.

It might take awhile.

But I'm trying really hard.

Okay, I'm going to make it happen,


I don't understand.

There's got to be something.

I mean, I have the experience,

- Kathy!

- I took extra forensic courses.


You've done everything right.

This is just how the cards fell.

Yeah, story of my f***ing life.

Look, there's something

I heard about.


This is just how the cards fell.

What with you trying

to get closer to your kid.

It's incredible money.

A hundred grand

tax-free for six months' work.

Come on. Is it legal?

What is this?

It's the contractor

that the government

uses to provide peacekeepers

in Bosnia.


You see the bullet marks?

Eye level!

You come here today

as a beacon of hope.

As representatives

of our highest aspirations.

You've been hired

by Democra Security

to represent the US

as monitors for the United Nations.

In the next few months you

will protect the rule of law where

lawlessness is run rampant.

The 1995 Dayton Peace Accords

ended this war

dictating that an international

police task force..., would smooth the transition

from war to peace.

During your training

you will see that peace

is harder won than war.

That every morning's hope is haunted

by yesterday's nightmare.

As representatives

of the United Nations,

we stake our highest values,

even our lives...

...on the belief that we can rebuild.

We must renew

and we will witness the rebirth

of this country.

It'll settle down.

- You been here before?

- This is my second mission.

You came straight

from the Academy?

No, I'm not a cop.

I work in administration.

You only need a...

...high school diploma

and to be over 21 to get in.


What about you?

What brought you here?

Oh, I heard the food

was really great.

I thought the war was over.


- You okay?

- Yeah.

I'm great.

I'm serious, I'm serious.

He couldn't move off the mine

for eight days and eight nights.

So he's demanding time

and a half for nights.

Best part is that now sue me!

How about that?

You still seeing the...

the little guy?

Kathy, meet Fred Murray.

- Hi.

- Pleasure.

Hey, guys. We got a match.

High stakes tournament situation.
