Davey Osborne: How'd you escape?
Hal Osborne: Jack Flack always escapes.
Davey Osborne: I don't need him anymore. I've got you, Dad.
Kim Gardener: It's not fair. Jack Flack always escapes. How does he do it, Morris? I had ten times as many bullets.
Morris: Yeah, but Flack had ingenuity and the contacts, Kim. That's better than bullets sometimes.
Lieutenant Fleming: I can tell you one thing: if we were at war, I'd want him on my side.
Davey Osborne: [into walkie-talkie] Jack Flack to Lady Ace. Come in, Lady Ace.
Kim Gardener: [into walkie-talkie] Yeah, Davey. What is it?
Davey Osborne: Come on, Kim. Play right.
Kim Gardener: Fine. Fine. Lady Ace to Jack Flack. Do you read me?
Davey Osborne: Loud and clear. I'll proceed to the building and you follow me in.
Kim Gardener: This is what I meant by "embarrassing".
Jack Flack: [materializes from behind the bedroom door as Davey's father is walking down the hall] Not too smart for a military man, huh?
Davey Osborne: Shut up!
[throws his Jack Flack miniature figure at Jack, who gasps in surprise and vanishes]
Jack Flack: [Jack doesn't re-materialize, but Davey hears his voice clearly] Yes you can! You were always on your own. Save Kim, Davey!
[Davey looks to his watch, seeing how much time is left to get to the airport before the bomb explodes]
Davey Osborne: [Davey grabs up the Jack Flack minature figure off the game board and puts it in his pocket] . Time to go, Jack!
Davey Osborne: [realizing that he has backed himself into a corner, Davey raises the pistol] Don't come any closer or I'll shoot...
Rice: [Rice approaches Davey, slowly emerging from under the darkened bridge] Yeah sure you will, red ink. Only this one
[taps the semi-automatic he holds, complete with silencer, as he is speaking]
Rice: shoots real bullets.
[Rice pulls the reload switch on the weapon for effect]
Davey Osborne: I'm warning you! This is not a water pistol...
Rice: Neither is this. I could turn you into shredded meat in about, uh, three seconds with this baby if I wanted to.
[Rice continues to advance on Davey, slowly]
Jack Flack: [materializes next to Davey] Shoot him. Just pull the trigger and shoot him, Davey.
Davey Osborne: Jack, I...
[Davey looks quickly to Jack and back to the advancing Rice, unsure what to do]
Jack Flack: All right, I'll show you what a real hero would do, watch this!
[Jack moves to the next wall to the right of Davey]
Davey Osborne: Jack?
Jack Flack: [the camera pans to Jack who now appears translucent, somewhat ghostly. Rice, confused, looks to Jack's direction and squints, apparently he can see someone, but he is unsure of who or what he is exactly seeing. Jack has taken off his hat and is now holding it over his chest] Come on, Turkey! Shoot! Come on! Right Here! Come on, Hit Me! Pull the trigger!...
Davey Osborne: [Davey looks to where Jack is standing, quickly glances back to Rice, and back to Jack, realizing that Jack is about to be shot] Jack, don't!
[Rice turns to Jack's direction and fires many rounds, we see Jack being hit by the shots and pushed back into the wall]
Davey Osborne: NO!
[Davey turns back to Rice quickly, points and shoots]
[Rice is hit in the chest and falls back into the river, dead]
Davey Osborne: Freeze turkey!
[Rice steps back, apparently startled that a kid has a gun, Davey looks back quickly to see Kim running up the steps, then back to Rice]
Davey Osborne: Take my advice, don't follow us...
[Davey begins to back away, moving in Kim's direction]
Rice: You little punk!
[Rice lunges towards Davey, trying to grab the gun, Davey pulls the trigger which shoots red ink, momentarily blinding Rice]
[Davey uses the moment of surprise and runs off]
Rice: . Wha?
[Rice dabs at his eyes, wiping away the red ink and trying to determine which way the kids ran]
Davey Osborne: Jack?
[Davey moves to the wall and runs his hands over the bullet holes caused by Rice's automatic weapon]
Jack Flack: [Jack materializes, sitting on the ground under the bullet holes. He stands up] Hey! Congrats Davey, you won!
Davey Osborne: I thought he shot you...
Jack Flack: Nah, never touched me
[Jack begins to pad himself down making sure he wasn't hit. He picks up his beret and runs his fingers through it, finding one bullet hole]
Jack Flack: Hmm.
Davey Osborne: [Davey runs his hands over the bullet holes again] But he could see you...
Jack Flack: [Jack puts his beret back on] Ah, probably didn't have much imagination anyway.
[Jack moves over to the edge of the riverwalk, and sees Rice, face down, floating down river]
Jack Flack: Huh. Tough break.
[Jack looks back to Davey and notices him belwidered at what just happened, and holds him by the shoulders]
Jack Flack: Look Davey, you killed the bad guys, you won the game! Well, how do you feel?
[Jack rubs Davey's head, messing up his hair in a "good job" gesture]
Jack Flack: .
Davey Osborne: It wasn't fair. You made me shoot, you made me kill him!
[Davey begins to back away from Jack]
Jack Flack: Ah, classic self defense. Come on, let's go save Kim!
[Jack moves to grab Davey's arm]
Davey Osborne: [Davey throws down his Jack Flack minature figure and stomps on it three times, breaking off the plastic base] I don't wanna play anymore!
Jack Flack: Oh. Sigh, Why does this always have to happen? They grow up, they forget, they...
[Jack looks down Davey's broken minature figure of himself on the ground]
Jack Flack: break their toys...
Davey Osborne: What?
Jack Flack: Your father said the same thing.
[a slow dripping sound is heard, like liquid on leather, slow at first, then quickens. Jack looks down at his chest, noticing it's coming from him]
Jack Flack: Hmm? Damn.
[Jack has begun to bleed from several entry wounds where the bullets hit him]
Davey Osborne: He did hit you!
[Davey moves to Jack's side]
Jack Flack: Ah, I'll be all right, come on...
Davey Osborne: But, you're bleeding...
Jack Flack: Ah, Oh!
[Jack takes a couple of steps forward, then falls back against the wall, breathing heavy and slowly starts to slide down the wall to a sitting position, Davey slides down with him, trying to support his friend]
Jack Flack: Oh!
[takes a razzled breath]
Jack Flack: Hey I got an idea, maybe...
[Jack struggles to stay focused]
Jack Flack: maybe you should go on without me...
Davey Osborne: Don't say that, you'll be fine!
[Davey begins looking around for help]
Jack Flack: You know, I always hated that part... leaving... when they stopped believing...
Davey Osborne: I'll go get some help...
[Davey starts to get up]
Jack Flack: No No, don't go.
[Jack roughly manages a smile, knowing the end is near]
Jack Flack: They... they wouldn't be able to see me anyway.
Davey Osborne: But... I need you Jack...
[tears begin to roll down Davey's cheek, as he realizes his friend is dying]
Jack Flack: Ah, go on. You're growing up now,
[Jack reaches to touch Davey's cheek and wipe away a tear]
Jack Flack: you don't need an ol' jolly pistol around like me anymore.
Davey Osborne: But... Jack Flack always escapes...
Jack Flack: You wanna know something?
Jack Flack: You're the best playmate I ever had. Tell you what,
[Jack looks behind Davey to the table with the umbrella]
Jack Flack: , why don't you go over there and get me a smoke? Over there, go on.
Davey Osborne: [Davey stands and walks towards the table, looking for the ciagarettes. The camera pans back to Jack, who flickers twice, a look of pain on his face, and then disappears] Jack?
[Davey moves back to where Jack was sitting]
Davey Osborne: Jack come back, I can't do it on my own!
