Kim, did you ever feel like you're manning that tollgate and the engineer's yelling, "I got pig iron, I got pig iron"?
-No. I don't know what that means.
But they want to walk to the river. It's their only chance to be social and gossip and, you know, hang out.
I bet you're wetter than a submarine with screen doors now.
I mean, you're like, a seven, a six or seven in New York? Here, you're a nine. Borderline ten. It's called "Kabul Cute."
-What are you here, like a 15?
"four-ten-four", Miss Baker? I am not, Colonel.

Soldier's heart to heart, part 1 of 2:
Ma'am, I lost my legs because of an IED, not because of you.
-I appreciate that, but if I hadn't quoted you, you wouldn't have been transferred. No, really, you can say whatever you want to me. That's why I'm here.
Okay, well, then let's say you're right. It's still not 'cause of you, ma'am. Some 12-year-old haji had to plant that bomb. And, hell, you know, if Bin Laden's parents hadn't have gotten divorced, maybe none of us would've been in the Stan to begin with. And the Taliban, they wouldn't have even been there for UBL if Brezhnev hadn't have gone and fouled up Afghanistan in the first place. And the British Empire. Yeah. And Kim Baker.
-Okay, I deserve that.
Soldier's heart to heart, part 2 of 2:
Goddamn! Once you got no legs, everyone takes everything so serious. I mean, there's only so much any of us have any control of, good or bad. If you didn't learn that in Afghanistan, you were not paying attention.
-So, you're not gonna yell at me?
I mean, ma'am... Kim, you've got to move on. You're giving yourself way too much credit. You embrace the suck, you move the fxck forward.
We don't wear IBAs (Individual Body Armor) on the FOB (Forward Operating Base) I don't even chamber a round in my weapon anymore, because, you know, I figure accidental discharge is scarier than the Taliban.
-With Iraq, do you feel like people have forgotten about Afghanistan?
Well... Yes, ma'am. I'd say that surely is the word for it. This here's a forgotten war. It's capital F, capital W.
"Your national animal is the unicorn."
"I think that's romantic."
"That's the national animal of the kingdom I ruled when I was eight."
"Kim, you know the frog in the pot of water. You raise the temperature bit by bit. The frog doesn't notice. That's what this place, that's what this job does to all of us. It changes your perception of what's normal until here we are."
"You know the frog boils to death at the end, right?"
"I dig pits to trap others and I fall in. I should be suspicious of what I want."
"I don't know what that means."
"The human body produces its own heroin. In fact, when the fight-or-flight instinct is activated in the hypothalamus, your body releases endorphins, dopamine, and norepinephrine, that is heroin, cocaine, and amphetamine all at once."
"Okay, great, are we having the Afghan version of this conversation where, in New York, we would have gotten to the point, like, five minutes ago?"
"There is a reason to believe that a person can get addicted to this type of high. Soldiers, uh, athletes, ..."
"War reporters? Okay, got it."
"An addict always needs a greater and greater dosage and then people make mistakes. People get hurt."
"Look, Nicky, I know you've been specially trained to protect New Zealand from, what, dolphins, but I'm not exactly a war zone virgin."
"Dolphins? What have dolphins got to do with New Zealand?"
"Nothing to do with that."
"Dolphins never hurt anyone."
"I know they've not hurt anyone, mate. I'm just making my point--"
"I'm not going to protect my country from an animal that's not hurt anyone."
"Dolphins. What a joke."
"What the hell was that?"
"It's probably just a wedding nearby. They like to shoot off guns at weddings here. You get it, you're from Florida."
