1963, the night before the 18 years old "Birdlace" Eddie and his friends are shipped to Vietnam. They play a dirty game called 'Dogfight': all of them seek a woman for a party, and who finds the most ugly one, wins a prize. Eddie finds the lonesome pacifist Rose working in a coffee shop. She's happy to accompany him - but then she sees through the game. However by this time he already learned to like her, so he follows her home. Will he manage to win her heart despite their differences? Written by

Right after Birdlace sticks the note to Rose's window, he loses his balance and falls, however in the next shot, as he is jumping over the fence to avoid Rose's attack dog, the window is empty and the note is nowhere to be seen. See more
[after learning the marines are shipping out
Where are you going?
Okinawa. But I'm aiming for this other place. It's a little country near India called Vietnam.
Yeah, I think I read about it. Aren't they fighting there or something?
No, not really. We'll just be there as advisors to teach them how to take care of the Commies.
That could be dangerous.
Nah. We'll kick a little ass, take a few names. Be back in a couple of months.
