  • A poker game with borrowed money and a new guy could have gone terribly wrong. Kirby's character and courage makes is all good. A dishonest Soldier makes Kirby wonder about himself and his motives, but in the end he proves himself.

    This is an excellent episode that shows Kirby's character.

    The episode starts with Kirby on a 24 hour pass acting like a typical Soldier; drinking hard and playing harder.

    He returns to the Squad with a killer hangover but continues to do his job, flanking a German Position using his BAR like usual. When they take a break he puts the arm on Doc for some more asprin.

    The real story starts when he takes on a partner to finance him in a poker game where he cleans everyone out including a new guy who gives him $800 in markers.

    I'm not going to ruin the story but suffice to say that Kirby is as good a guy as he is a Soldier.

    "If you tell anyone I'll bust you in the mouth." speaks volumes.

    One of the great ones that lets us see who the guys in the Squad really are.
