        Scare The New Guy

        SPC Owen Eldridge: Aren't you glad the Army has all these tanks parked here? Just in case the Russians come and we have to have a big tank battle?
        SGT J.T. Sanborn: I'd rather be on the side with the tanks, just in case, than not have them.
        SPC Owen Eldridge: Yeah, but they don't do anything. I mean, anyone comes alongside a Humvee, we're dead. Anybody even looks at you funny, we're dead. Pretty much the bottom line is, if you're in Iraq, you're dead. How's a f*cking tank supposed to stop that?
        SGT J.T. Sanborn: Would you shut the f*ck up, Owen?
        SPC Owen Eldridge: Sorry. Just trying to scare the new guy.

          You Deal With It

          SGT J.T. Sanborn: I'm not ready to die, James.
          SFC William James: Well, you're not going to die out here, bro.
          SGT J.T. Sanborn: Another two inches? Shrapnel zings by; slices my throat. I'll bleed out like a pig in the sand; nobody'll give a sh*t. I mean my parents? They'll care, but they don't count, man. Who else? I don't even have a son.
          SFC William James: Well, you're gonna have plenty of time for that, amigo.
          SGT J.T. Sanborn: No, man. I'm done. I want a son. I want a little boy, Will. I mean, how do you do it, you know? Take the risk?
          SFC William James: I don't know. I guess I don't think about it.
          SGT J.T. Sanborn: But you realize every time you suit up, every time we go out, it's life or death. You roll the dice, and you deal with it. You recognize that don't you?
          SFC William James: Yeah... Yeah, I do. But I don't know why. I don't know, J.T. You know why I'm that way?
          SGT J.T. Sanborn: No, I don't.
