Anthony 'Swoff' Swofford: (Swoff and Fergus are disassembling and reassembling their rifles in their tent. Cortez is sitting a few bunks down, messing with his radio) What would you say if I told you I was gonna kill you for fucking me over like that? Fergus: I already told you, it was an accident. Anthony 'Swoff' Swofford: An accident. Right. Like when the trigger slips. Of course, your nice little mom and dad are where? Fergus: Cottonwood Falls. Anthony 'Swoff' Swofford: Cottonwood Falls. They'll be sad. THey won't have their little boy to send fucking cookies to. I'll say it was an accidental discharge. I might spend some time in the brig... but it'll end this fucking waiting. And I don't knwo what it's like to kill a man. (loads rifle and points it at Fergus) Fergus: What are you doing? Anthony 'Swoff' Swofford: I'm in the firing position known as the sitting position. After the prone position, it is the platform most likely to enable a Marine to effectivley kill his target. His target being a human, generally an enemy but sometimes a friend or friendly. We call this frinedly fire, or friendly fucking or getting friendly fucked. Fergus: Come on Swoff, it was your watch! It was Christmans Eve, and I was just thinking about home. That's it. Anthony 'Swoff' Swofford: What do you think Cortez? You think I'll accidentally kill your homeboy from boot camp? Cortez: Sure you'll kill him. Accidents happen. Anthony 'Swoff' Swofford: You don't see shit right? Cortez: I don't see shit. This ain't even my tent. Matter of fact, I ain't even here, Swoff. (exits tent)
