INT. QUARTERS-BARRACKS-BASIC TRAINING-FT. LEONARD WOOD-1987 — DAY

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

KEVIN KILLIAN, or PSYCH (22) sits on his bunk bed across from KARL (20), and ALBERT (19). They look at each other and smile in silence as they overhear their squad mate BRIAN or BEAR (25), try to do sit ups for the drill instructors. Over the shouts and insults they hear him cry. The three drill instructors, SGT HARKUS (32), SGT HITCHKOCK (29), and SGT ROYSTER (34) don’t let up.

SGT HARKUS (OS)

Yeah, that’s it, you little bitch.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

SGT ROYSTER (OS)

One more, aw what’s wrong tiger? You wore out?

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

SGT HITCHCOCK (OS)

Poor little thing, there’s tears in his eyes.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

SGT HARKUS (OS)

Aw, boo hoo hoo. How ‘bout all them girlfriends? All those women you had? Stud!

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

SGT ROYSTER (OS)

I bet he’s like a sister to them. Just one of the bitches.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

Psych and his roommates look at each other and grin.

INT. ORDERLY ROOM-BARRACKS-BASIC TRAINING-SAME TIME

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

The three drill instructors surround Bear who is on the floor and winded.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

SGT HITHCOCK

What’s wrong, honey? Can’t get it up?

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

SGT HARKUS (to SGT HITCHCOCK)

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

Oh, stop it! That’s no way to speak to a lady.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

Bear cries harder. His hands are behind his head and he tries another sit up. Sgt. Harkus, in a show of strength, grabs the 200 pound Bear with one hand and pulls him to his feet. He spins Bear around to kick him.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

SGT HARKUS

Get lost! A 25 year old kid that can’t do sit ups.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

SGT ROYSTER

(pushes Bear into the hall)Go get your nails done, honey. Formation is at 1600.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

INT. QUARTERS-BARRACKS-MINUTES LATER

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

Bear, still in tears, storms into the room. Psych and his friends give the enraged Bear looks of consolation. Bear heads to his locker. Everyone smiles behind his back.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

PSYCH (VO)

Fuck those movies going about what hell it is in basic training. I love basic training. Beats the hell out of junior high school!

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

EXT. FORMATION-BARRACKS — 1600

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

Psych and his platoon are in formation. Everyone reads his Soldier’s Common Tasks texts. Bear dabs at his tears. Sgt. Hitchcock smiles at him. Sgt. Harkus looks on.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

SGT HARKUS

Boo hoo hoo. Poor little thing, bitch!

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

The formation of Basic Trainees is called to attention.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

PSYCH (VO)

Basic was cool. I don’t care what anyone says. For the first time in my life I fit in. Poor little Bear. Yeah, boy, those drill instructors love bullies. Uh huh, believe that.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

The company readies for drill and ceremony.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

PSYCH (VO) (CONT'D)

Forrest Gump had it right. Stand tall and say ‘yes sergeant’ and be sure to make your bed nice and pretty. Follow the rules and don’t let them learn your name.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

SGT ROYSTER

Killian! What’s your third general order?

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

PSYCH (VO)

Shit! After a couple of weeks…oh well.

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

PSYCH (shouts)

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

Sergeant, my third general order is not to leave my post until properly relieved!

DanielKirwan - on 05/26/2011

PSYCH (VO) (CONT'D)

And don’t let them catch you sleeping. Stand tall and say ‘yes sergeant!’ and make your bed nice and pretty.
