              I do.

              [ Sighs ] Oh, my God.

              I still do not believe this.

              My own boy with a strange girl.

              And not so thin, if you understand my meaning. Not such a thin girl.

              The next thing you know, he goes to Vietnam. [ Sighs ]

              [ Speaking Russian ]

              I do not understand, Father.

              [ Sighs ] I understand nothing anymore. Nothing !

              Why ?

              [ Weeping Continues ] Why ?

              Can you explain ? Can anyone explain ?

              - Pass him on the inside. - Oh-oh, you'd never do it.

              [ Mike ] Shut up.

              - It's your Caddy against my truck. - Is today your lucky day ?

              You can't make it.

              [ Stan ] Hey, hey, Axel, you owe him a window.

              [ Steven ] Mike ! Mike ! Hey, mighty Mike !

              - Oh, Axel. - Here's your truck back.

              [ Steven ] Oh, hell, I hope he didn't break an axle.

              I wouldn't want to take advantage of you.

              It's a million-to-one shot against a sure thing.

              - There's no such thing as a sure thing. - Yeah.

              - [ Stan ] Did you see that ?

              - [ Stan ] Hey, Boom ! - [ Axel ] Hey, how ya doin' ?

              - [ Axel ] Oh, man.

              Steven's gettin' married in a couple of hours.

              We're talkin' about huntin' the last time before the army.

              The whole thing, it's crazy.

              I'll tell ya one thing.

              If I found out my life had to end up in the mountains,

              I'd be all right.

              But it has to be in your mind.

              What ?

              One shot ?

              Two is pussy.

              I don't think about one shot that much anymore, Mike.

              You have to think about one shot. One shot is what it's all about.

              A deer has to be taken with one shot.

              I try to tell people that. They don't listen.

              - You really think about Vietnam ? - Yeah.

              I don't know. I guess.

              I'm thinkin' about the deer. Going to Nam.

              I like the trees, you know ?

              I like the way the trees are in the mountains, all the different--

              The way the trees are.

              I sound like some asshole, right ?

              I'll tell you, Nick, you're the only guy I go huntin' with, you know ?

              I like a guy with quick moves and speed. I ain't gonna hunt with no assholes.

              - Well, who's an asshole ? - Who's an asshole ?

              Who do you think's an asshole ?

              They're all a bunch of assholes.

              I mean, I love 'em. They're great guys, but without you, I'd hunt alone.

              - Seriously, that's what I'd do. - Well, you're a fuckin' nut.

              You know that, Mike. You're a maniac, control freak.

              I just don't like no surprises.

              - Damn thing won't open. - Well, give it a kick.

              Hey, man, hey, hey, not like that. Not--

              Here, here, here.

              - See that ? - Fuckin' A.


              [ John ] Axel, now I know why you're not still kicking for the Steelers.

              You know, I love Mike's car.

              Yeah, some cars, they just sit.

              You never know with a car like this where the hell it's gonna take you.

              Yeah. It makes me feel safe.

               Oh, what is he doing ?

              Axel's humping Mike's Coupe de Ville.

              - Axel, get out of there. - Let's get the carnations.

              Get up. Get up. What are you doing ?

              Come on. Sit up. Oh, God, you're impossible.

              - Here, put this on. You have to have that on. - Crummy tuxedo.

              - Tuxedo's been stuck a million times.

              - Where'd you get this thing ? It's not funny. - Fuckin' A.

              - I'm beautiful, right ? I'm beautiful. - No, you're not.

              - All set. - Thanks, Amy.

              You can't even sit up, Axel. Oh !

              - Axel, come on. Sit up. You can't even sit up. - Beautiful.

              Linda, what's the matter ? I was gonna pick you up.


              - What's the matter ? - He hit me.

              Hey, come here, come here. I wanna ask you something.

              Hey, wait a minute, goddamn it.

              - Nick ? - You don't walk away from me. What is that on your face ?

              Nicky, you and Michael, you're goin' away in a couple of days.

              I was just wonderin' if I could use this place to stay.

              - Oh, sure. - I'd wanna pay you both.

              - And I was thinking-- - What are you talkin' about ?

              I would wanna pay you, Nick.

              - Hey, Kochatka, it's me you're talking to.

              - You know, how long have you known me for ? - [ Giggling, Sobbing ]

              What ?

              I don't know.

              Have you, Steven, a free will and a firm intention...

              to take unto yourself as wife this woman, Angela,

              whom you see before you ?

              I mean, when we get back.

              I don't know what the hell I mean.

              I think what goes through your mind comes out your mouth.

              Angela and Steven,

              if you don't spill a drop,

              it's good luck for the rest of your life.

              Don't worry what Stan says. Just forget that.

              - Hey ! - [ Mike ] Come here.

              I never really did it with Angela, Nicky.

              Great. That's great.

              That's my last one true secret.

              It's nothing. It's nothing. Just forget about it.

              - Angela, Angela !

              Oh, Angela.

              - Just hang loose. - Hang loose ?

              [ Axel ] Look at this maniac.

              I'll see you Monday on the train.

              - Hey. - Drive carefully.

              - You didn't know that about Angela, huh ? Right ? - Oh, that's bullshit.

              - Oh, it's bullshit, right ? Yeah ? - It's bullshit. Bullshit.

              - I happen to know it's true. - That's bullshit.

              -I happen to know it's true. All right ? -You're full of bullshit.

              - Do you wanna bet ? Put your money where your mouth is. - Yeah. Bullshit.

              Where the hell's my boots ?

              Anybody see my boots ?

              Somebody took my boots. I bought 'em special.

              All right. All right, you guys. Whoever took my boots, I want 'em back.

              I got a boot for you, Stan, right up your ass.

              Hey, Mike, lemme borrow your spares, huh ?

              - Your extra pair ? - No, Stan.

              No ?

              - What do you mean, "No" ? - Just what I said. No. No means no.

              Some fuckin' friend. You're some fuckin' friend, you know that ?

              Every time you come here, you got your head up your ass.

              - Maybe he likes the view from up there.

              Every time he comes up, he's got no knife, no jacket.

              He's got no pants, no boots.

              All he's got is that stupid gun he carries like John Wayne.

              That ain't gonna help ya.

              Oh, what the hell, Mike. Give him the boots.

              No, I ain't givin' him no boots. No more. That's it.

              You're a fuckin' bastard, you know that ? Huh ?

              Stanley, see this ? This is this.

              This ain't somethin' else. This is this.

              From now on, you're on your own.

              I fixed you up a million times.

              I fixed him up a million times.

              I don't know how many times I must've fixed him up with girls.

              And nothin' ever happened. Zero.

              You know your trouble, Mike ? Nobody ever knows what you're talkin' about.

              "This is this." What the hell's that supposed to mean ? "This is this."

              Is that faggot-soundin' bullshit, or is that faggot-soundin'--

              Shut up, Stan, will ya ? Hey, man, you're outta line.

              Watch out with that gun, Stan. Watch out with the gun.

              Do you know what I think ? There's times I swear I think you're a faggot.

              Hey, come on, you guys.

              Last week he could've had that new redheaded waitress at the Bowladrome.

              He could've had it, but look what he did.

              Nothin', that's what.

              Shut up, Stan. Just shut up !

              Just shut up. Take-- Take Michael's goddamn boots and shut up.

              Otherwise, I'm goin' home. I'm goin' home right now.

              - Get off my stuff. What the hell're you doin' ?

              Hey, Stosh.

              I said, "No."

              What ? Are you gonna shoot me ? Huh ?


              What's the matter with you ?


              - Watch it, Mike ! Pow ! Whack !

              People inside doing it for money ?

              Sometime a great deal of money.

              I cannot play this kind of game myself.

              But I'm always-- How do you say ?

              Looking out for those things quite different, quite rare.

              Champagne, perhaps ?


              Tsk, tsk. Don't say no.

              When a man say no to champagne, he say no to life.

              [ Man ] You saw this before ?

              Up north.

              - Gotta go. - But you must come in.

              - I insist.

              Of what is there to be afraid of after this war ? War is a joke.

              - A silly thing. - I'm going home, ace !

              Naturellement I pay my players...

              cash, American.

              However, should you prefer German marks or perhaps Swiss franc,

              that, of course, can be arranged.

              - I can arrange everything. - You got the wrong guy, ace.

              - But you must come in. - Don't do that.

              But I insist.

              Nick !

              Hey ! Nick ! Nick !

              I can't wait for him to see all this stuff.

              - What happened ? - Hey, Stosh, what happened ? I thought it was him.

              So his plane could be late. Take it easy, will ya, Axel ? You're drivin' everyone nuts.

              You okay ?

              I know Nick will be back soon.

              I know Nick. He'll be comin' back too.

              Oh ! Everybody was here. You missed them all.

              Oh. They're gonna be so mad when they find out they missed you.

              You know, I was hopin'--

              I was hopin' somehow, Michael, maybe you had... Nick with you.

              No. No.

              You hear anything on Nick ?


              Nothing. He's A.W.O.L.

              That's all we know.


              He'll be back.

              He never wrote to me. He never called me.

              Maybe you were out.

              Yeah. Maybe.

              So how are you anyway ?

              I'm fine. Okay. How are you ?

              Uh, me ? I'm okay.

              I'm fine. I go along, you know.

              Still workin' at the market there. There's a million things to do.

              Y-You sure you're all right, huh ?

              - Yeah, I'm all right. - What about your wounds ?

              It was nothin'. Just the usual complications. That's all.

              - We heard. - No, that's not true. A lot of guys go through it.

              Hmm. Tsk.

              I made Nick that sweater.

              I couldn't remember the exact size, but--

              I think he's about the same size as you, huh ?

              No. Too big. Whoops.

              Well, I could fix that, though. I mean--

              One thing about wool, it's really a cinch...

              to fix.

              Oh, Christ.

              - It's okay.

              It's okay.

              It's okay.

              - How's your job ? - Great. Fine. Yeah.

              Once or twice we almost had to close.

              I gotta go to work now.

              - Gotta go now ? - Yeah.

              Uh, would you mind if I walked you to work ?

              Mikie, you're so... weird.

              You're always such a gentleman.

              Tsk. Well--

              - It's cold out there. - Yeah.

              I'm not used to it.

              Oh, I'm so glad you're alive.

              I'm so happy.

              I really don't know what I feel.

              - Hey, Jack. - Hello. How are you ?

              Linda, uh, I just want to say...

              how sorry I am about Nick.

              And how-- I know how much you loved him and...

              I know that it'll never be the same.

              I just wanted to tell you that.

              Maybe-- I don't know-- Maybe you don't want to talk about it.

              How's it goin', hot lips ?

              Yeah, a new kid. A real tough guy.

              It's okay.


              Why don't you come in with me ? Just say hello.

              Oh, Mike, please. They want to see you. I know.
