Fearless lights a cigarette and sees Freaktown sitting in a lawn chair. Fearless says he knows why Freak is there, and that this time, he's going to keep his word, unlike last time.
Whoosh sound. Wahlberg opens the door and catches Fearless talking to himself. Fearless knows it must look funny, him all talking to himself, filler, filler, boring dialogue, but he's been seeing Freaktown lately, filler, filler, Wahlberg lies and says that Fearless hasn't talked about Freaktown much lately, and Fearless says he wasn't thinking about him, filler, filler, launching into flashback story. Why is there a lawn chair at the police station?
Desert Storm. Three Kings rip-off. Freaktown is drooling over a picture of a steak in a magazine. He rips it out and puts it on the wall next to Fearless's pin-up. Hilarity!
Fearless scares Freaktown outside their tent. Freak shouts and yells at Fearless for scaring him. Fearless laughs and laughs and laughs -- not realizing that he probably could have just been shot -- and declares that it's going to be a long war. Freak says it'll be pretty short if he keeps playin' like that. Um, is there going to be a Russian mobster anywhere around this war? Because I do believe we already know this backstory, where Fearless feels guilty for Freaktown dying. I mean, it's not like he said it, but I can figure it out, and maybe we could just have a sentence or two instead of this sepia-toned crapfest. Anyway, Freak reminds Fearless how many times Fearless has saved him from stepping on a mine.
Flashback flashback flashback of Fearless moving Freaktown out of the way of a mine as it explodes. One rule of scriptwriting is to not name the characters similarly because then it gets confusing. Just a little tip from me to you, since Boomtown effs the system.
Freaktown tells Fearless he's a bad ass. Freaktown: "Too bad you don't know a damn thing about life." Fearless: "About what?" Freaktown: "About life, General!" Okay, that was some shittiness right there. Freaktown says that God is in the details. He's acting his ass off around those fake eyebrows they've put on him and he's doing a damn fine Arsenio Hall impression. He asks Fearless to promise to keep him alive in this "sandtown," and that, in return, he'll unlock the mysteries of life for him. Are we done with the schmaltz? Because I'd love us all to move on together. Fearless promises, and Desert Storm ends three days later.
