[Bean refuses to identify his assailant]
MSgt. Otis V. McKinney:
Now then, I want to tell you people about your new roommate. This Mr. Bean here's a real *smart-ass* who thinks he's better than the rest of us. While all you color boys been busy soldiering, what do you think he's been doing? DOGGING IT, that's what! Dead-heading! And playing the SICK-CALL SOLDIER! Well, he will learn *not to dog it in HERE*! And YOU PEOPLE will grunt and sweat every last second with him until he DOES learn it!

In the Sweet Bye and Bye

Perhaps, it was my having seen this movie with a bunch of my Army buddies - while in the Army. Or maybe, being a Larry/Laurence Fishburne FANATIC! It could be that I saw this with my heart open and my mind closed...nah, none of the above reasons are why this movie ranks as one of my all-time favorites. It is the camaraderie and class of the relationship that Martin Sheen created with his main characters.
Never have I seen a movie with such honesty and triumph. Truly, I saw the ending before it came...but I didn't care. Isn't that what a GOOD director will do - make you appreciate the movie and not focus on what the end result will be.
The "End of My Journey" rips through me every time I hear it. A great film study on what true friendship is when race is not factored into the equation. 9/10 - And, I know flicks!
