[giving a speech to a class of soldiers]
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: About five years ago, when I was on leave, I found myself standing in the middle of the cereal aisle at the Publix with my arm around some guy’s throat. I was squeezing so hard he pissed himself. My fiancée at the time had to climb on my back just so I didn’t actually kill the guy. Do you know why I was doing this? Because he hadn’t moved his cart when I asked. I was the best of the best, able to shut down, control, manipulate all basic human instincts towards one goal, the completion of my mission. But the effects of committing extreme violence on other human beings are biological and physiological. That’s the price of being a warrior.


 

[Pope watches in the back as Ironhead gives a speech to a class of soldiers]
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Your government has put a lot of time, money, and training into all of you, and it does not want to lose that investment. Over the next few weeks, you will be bombarded with offers to take your skillset and use them in the private sector. I was suckered into the same thing. That’s what I’m here to say, that I have never had a feeling as pure or proud as completing a mission with our flag on my shoulder. Stay where you belong. Thank you.


 

[after Ironhead’s ended his speech]
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: How many times have you given that speech?
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: It’ll be a hundred and seventy-three.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Still keeping count of everything in your life?
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Of course.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: It’s still a good speech.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Thank you.


 

William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: If you can get Redfly, I’ll do it.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Really?
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Yeah.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Do you think he’s up for it?
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: I just feel like we owe him. Besides, it’s always a little harder than you think it’s going to be, right? Get the captain, I’m in.


 

Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: So, I got a job for you. Guaranteed seventeen grand for a week of consulting. No action unless you want it. It’s just a recce.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: I’m retired.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I know.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: What is it?
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: We’re going to get Gabriel Martin Lorea.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: Haven’t you been trying to do that for years?
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Yes. I could never find him, and I finally did.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: I can’t do it, man.


 

Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Seventeen grand is just for the recce. But if we decide to move forward, this could be a whole lot more than that. I’ve cut a deal with the agency down there. We keep twenty-five percent of anything we seize. I’ve got estimates he’s got over seventy-five million dollars in cash with him.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: Holy shit.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Yeah.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: Let’s say the money is there. How do we get paid? Because this shit is serious, and it takes real planning, and you know that.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I’ve got a lawyer in St. John’s who set up an offshore shell security operation that’s ready to pay out a salary and bonuses for the rest of our lives. It’ll just come in like any other paycheck. Will you take a look at my work on it?
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: No, I don’t want to see that because then I can’t unsee it. This operation is illegal, right?
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: This is not illegal. My company’s under contract to an agency of a foreign government. And besides, even if it was illegal, most of the live fire you’ve done has been against the Geneva Convention, technically, so.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: Come on, you’re a better salesman than that. This is a very different thing.


 

Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: So, I guess you’ll just keep selling condos, and I’ll run and gun until my knees finally blow out.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: Or you could do this without me.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I could. But I don’t want to, because I say we deserve better, man. How many times did we fly around with twenty million bucks at our feet to pay off some cockroach somewhere, and we never took a dime? Hell, you’ve been shot four times.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: Five.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: You’ve been shot five times for your country, and you can’t even afford a new truck. That’s the real crime.


 

Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Fish, I need a pilot. I can’t do this thing without you.
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: I don’t know, man. I got the new baby now, and my lady isn’t into me doing this kind of shit anymore.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: What does that mean
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: Did you read the text? This can change you and that baby’s life forever.


 

Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: What happened to that bullshit about going back to your mother’s homeland and empowering the people to police themselves? Anyway, I lost my license. I can’t even fly right now.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Well, I don’t need a pilot with a license. I’m in with the army down there. I just need a pilot that I can trust.
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: Yeah, I don’t think so.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Okay. Lorea is destroying that country. So we get to take out a very bad man, and, oh, by the way, there’s a winning lottery ticket stuck to the bottom of your cowboy boot. Every guy in that gym would jump at this.


 

[as they are surveying Lorea’s land and home]
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: Pope, I have kids over here. Does he have kids living in here with him? Because that’s going to make things a whole lot more complicated, and is not what I signed up for.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: The family’s not the problem. They’re the answer.
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: Why?
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Church. Lorea’s very devout. Every Sunday morning, he sends three guards to the 6:00 AM service. When they get back, he sends the rest of the team, along with his family, into town to mass. That leaves him and three guards in that house, and that’s our window.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Why would he do that?
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Worried about someone taking his kids. And he never leaves his money. And also I don’t think he believes anyone actually has the balls to come out here and rob him.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: It’s probably because it’s a stupid idea.


 

William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: You fucking lied to us.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: No, I didn’t lie to you. I asked you guys to come down here, do reconnaissance, and make a plan. Now, we can execute that plan alone and take all of the money, or you guys can fuck off, and I’ll bring the team from down here in. But I assure you, if I do that, this fucker will find out about it, and he’ll be gone, and I need this guy.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: You know how many fucking bad men are out there all over the world?
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Yeah, well, this is my last one. And you may not believe it, but I have been here for the last three years of my life, trying to make a difference, but it’s a fucking mess. And it’s all because of Lorea.


 

Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: The thought of leaving everything we’ve done behind for the last seventeen years, with nothing to show for it…
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: Fuck you, nothing to show for it.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Look, if we had accomplished half the things that we’ve accomplished in any other profession, we’d be set for life.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Hey, man, that’s the deal we cut.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Well, it’s a shitty deal.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Yeah, well…
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Because this man’s a goddamn hero, and he can’t even send his kids to college. And Fish’s the most talented pilot I know, and he’s grounded on a bullshit coke rap. And how many times can your brother get the shit knocked out of him for…
Ben Miller: I didn’t get the shit beat out of me. I won that fight.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Sorry, Benny. And how many more pep talks can you possibly give? I’m done, man. Both knees are shot. That neck operation I got last year made the whole thing worse. So, the question is, “Do we finally get to use our skills for our own benefit and actually change something?”


 

Yovanna: [to Santiago] If we’re not gone forever after you make your move, we are dead.


 

Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: Alright, first things first, safety. There is no medevac. There is no ground support. Any injuries we sustain, we’re walking out with. Be mindful, each of you has a medical kit in your bag. Number two, you cannot go back to your normal life after tonight. Make no mistake about it. What we are about to do is criminal. We do not have the flag on our shoulders, and no amount of bullshit that we tell ourselves is going to change that. If we do our job right, we will be committing one murder and one armed robbery. You guys need to own the fact that you are desecrating most of the oaths you ever took. Third, family. If they don’t go to church, or if they come home early, it’s an abort. Full stop. They are not who we came for. And lastly, it’s not too late to go home. We had an agreement with Pope, and we fulfilled that. Any man here who wants to walk away now can do so knowing they’re the best of us, but it’s got to be now.
[they all look at each other, but no one leaves]


 

Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I want to make sure we’re not leaving that house without taking care of Lorea.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: If he’s there like he’s supposed to be, we’ll get him.


 

[as they are taking the money from Lorea’s house]
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: Goddamn it, look at all this money! Just a couple more loads!
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Fuck this! Time’s up. We got to go.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I want one more sweep for Lorea. Alright? And then we burn it all down.
[pause before Redfly nods]
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: Okay, I’ll get these last one loaded down there, and you call out when you’re ready to light it up.
[he hands the fuel to Redfly]
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: Move. Move!


 

William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Come on, we got to go! Lighting it up.
[as Redfly goes to drop his lighter suddenly Lorea ambushes them and starts shooting, they shoot back and Pope kills Lorea]
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: What are we shooting at in here? Is that Lorea?
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: He’s dead.
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: Good.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: I’m hit.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: Shit!


 

[after breaking into Lorea’s home]
Ben Miller: Sunday school’s over, boys. They’re back.
[seeing that Ironhead has been shot]
Ben Miller: Oh, shit!
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: The family?
Ben Miller: No, the first shift of guards.


 

Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Alright, we can each take a backpack of cash, we go out through the back into the jungle, and we’re gone. I’ll cover the cost of the operation.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Fuck that.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: No. We are bringing Ironhead home safe. Not dragging him through the jungle. And we’re not leaving them any of this fucking money.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Right, so we burn it all down and go.
Tom ‘Redfly’ Davis: There’s about a hundred million dollars for them waiting in the van out there. We need to hunt and shoot quickly. Call out your kills. I don’t want any fucking surprises. Got it?
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Alright. Let’s do this.


 

[after leaving Lorea’s place]
Ben Miller: That was a shitshow back there, man. We don’t leave messes like that!


 

Yovanna: It’s not just Lorea’s money in there. A lot more people are going to come looking after you.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I can deal with that. But do not stay in South America, because they will find you, and they will kill you.
[in Spanish]
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Promise me that you won’t stay here.
Yovanna: Yes!
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Promise me!
Yovanna: I promise you.


 

Yovanna: How do I contact you?
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: You can’t. You did everything right. You deserve this.


 

[referring to Lorea’s men]
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: I’m sure they’ve got every town covered anyway. Must be what’s left of Lorea’s guys.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: So we go through them.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Through them?
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: What, do you mean we mow them all down?
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: What’s the alternative here?
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: I’m not prepared to wipe out every teenager in that town just to get through with this cargo.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: This cargo?
[pointing to Redfly’s body]
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: What about that cargo? Will you do it for him? Tom died for this money, and we’re not leaving this country without it!
Ben Miller: He didn’t die for that money, he died because of it!
[Pope turns and walks off]
Ben Miller: They’re just kids, man. Can’t we carry it out through the dark?
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: It’s over a hundred bags. There’s no way.


 

Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I can’t believe I let this happen.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Look, we all came here of our own free will.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: Yeah, but I thought we could, I thought we could do this.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Yeah. And we got what we deserved.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I’m sorry.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Yeah, me, too. But we can’t do this.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I know. I know.
[Pope walks back to the rest of the team]
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: We can’t just go through them. I don’t know what I was saying.
Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales: It’s alright.


 

William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: So what you going to do now?
[referring to Yovanna]
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I don’t know. Maybe I’ll, uh, I’ll go see this girl I know in Australia.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Yeah, you should. I hear she recently came into some money.
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: I guess she made out a whole hell of a lot better than any of us did.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: That seems about right.
[referring to Redfly’s family]
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: When you see Molly and the girls, remind them who he was.
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Yeah, I will.
[they embrace]
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Take care of yourself, alright?
Santiago ‘Pope’ Garcia: You, too.
[he gives Pope a set of coordinates on a piece of paper, the location of where they left the money]
William ‘Ironhead’ Miller: Maybe we can go do something good with it one day.
[Ironhead walks off]
