We'll be jumping from a Howard DGA-15. "DGA": that stands for "Damn Good Airplane", which if course it is. Very tricky to land though. Heh heh. You're much better off jumping out if it than you are taking a chance on landing in it. This one's in good shape.
To Browdy, a airplane is in good shape if it has wings and a prop.
What I don't understand is, why you do this thing at all.
To me, it's a business.
And you Mr. Rettig? What's it to you? If you don't mind my asking.
I had a friend in the Army, a sergeant, a parachutist for about 20 years. He used to say that jumping was not only a way to live, but also a way to die. Damn few things are.
Remember what you always said when I first started with you? "Be careful." That's what you always said. "That's what's important in this business kid. BE careful."
Is that what I always said?
Why are you taking so many chances now? What are you trying to prove?
Look, kid, this is a business. They don't pay to watch us walk across the street. Now, when are yuh gonna get that through your head? If you're so concerned with Rettig doing the jump, I mean, you can learn it yourself. Then you wouldn't have to worry about him.
I have a better idea. Why don't you do it?
Because I recognize my limitations. It's the secret to my success in life.
[Softly] Tomorrow, when we leave here, I want you to come with me.
[Clearly surprised at the request] Come with you?
[She makes some low sounds, and he moves toward her] Do you always offer more than you're asked for?
Only to those who ask so much less than they want.
