From the walkie-talkie comes the news that the captain is heading back to base and is done with that nights post checks. Seeing that it's still a long, boring night ahead, The Private starts looking for excuses hazing the rookie. At first, Private First Class doesn't seem to mind too much. Until the trick, "The moon chase" is pulled on the rookie does Private First Class start feeling sympathy towards the rookie. As the hazing turns more ugly, Private First Class urges The Private to stop his immoral actions. The two argue and Private First Class slowly comes to the realization that he too, was once picking on rookies; and he is actually responsible for this ... Written by Lin, Tom Shu-Yu
