  • Man returns home from Iraq after losing his entire platoon.

    I would have to say that watching this episode really touched home. I am currently deployed and this episode was well done. It shows what we go threw being here and what happens when we go home. Dealing with integrating ourselves back into the real world can be a challenge and i believe this episode showed just that. It was a heart touch episode that I am forever grateful for them making. For those that thought is wasn't that great you have no clue what your talking about. I think the writers had a great idea with it. Thank you from a US Army Soldier serving this country proud.moreless
  • Probably my favorite episode!

    This was an AWESOME episode! Not enough people praise our brave troops in Iraq for risking their lives to protect ours. This is my favorite episode. This was so touching that my mother cryed at the end. Looks like the writers know what's really happening.

    I just wish all shows could do something like this, and show the libril brain washers a thing or two about how we all need this war, for the sake of our lives. This is a great episode and if you haven't seen this I recomend it to everyone who is a fan of this show.moreless

  • Best episode in a long time.

    This was such an emotional episode. We were lead to believe that he was a coward the whole episode. I really believed it actually, and then it ends up with him being a brave, brave hero. And it was so cool that for once he could here and sense the ghosts himself, post traumatic stress Melinda called it. Lol;) At the ceremony at the ending I must say I got a little teary wet. The whole episode was well build up with a surprising ending. Totally loved it in every way. Liked the song at the ending to. I hope they keep this great episodes coming!moreless
  • To be honest, I think this episode is on of the best of all the seasons I've seen. This time in this episode where a part of the war is explained is well done. No difficult explanations or what so ever.moreless

    To be honest, I think this episode is on of the best of all the seasons I've seen.

    This time in this episode where a part of the war is explained is well done. No difficult explanations or what so ever.

    No question if it's an honest war, or that we never should have invaded Iraq.

    No, just the story of a soldier who survived hell on earth. Lost all his buddies and

    even can't remember crucial things. This is happening in the real world more than often. A lot of people look at the

    soldiers who has been to war as they were/are killers. But that's very shortsighted.

    I know that even people who joins the army think they will never be in a real war.

    And even most soldiers don't know what can happen if they survice such war.

    A lot of misunderstanding by their former friends who can't of will not understand

    how a veteran feels. I think this episode has done a good part to show that.

    The unbelieve, the questions......

    First time I give an episode a 10 but for me this one rulez....moreless

    • Delia: Can't you just ask the ghost guy, or is there a language barrier?
      Does that even happen with ghosts?

    • (In the shop talking about Matt and Gina)
      Delia: They've been dating each other half of their adult lives. He's obviously crazy about her, and she's nuts about him.
      Melinda: I'm starting to wonder if it has something to do with the ghost that's haunting him.
      Delia: Wait. He's got a ghost? Is everybody haunted?
      Melinda: Could be, on both questions.

    • (after the soldiers go, Gina runs in)
      Gina: I've been looking everywhere for you.
      Matt: Sorry.
      Gina: Don't ever leave me again. What part of "I love you" don't you get? I'm with you.
      Matt: I know.
      (he takes the ring and gives it to her)
      Matt: This is all I can give you right now. Now, we'll replace it when we...
      Gina: Don't you dare.
