Hired by the colonel's niece to help him while she and her husband and children get away for Thanksgiving, Charlie is told it will be an easy job. It isn't.

Hijinks and drama ensues as the Colonel is staring down his own dark path and past filled with many regrets and a young Charlie burdened by a choice lingering back at his school: To snitch on some students or not.

* DressingToDie: Frank dons his full "dress blues", i.e. ceremonial military uniform complete with all his rank insignia and medals [[spoiler:before his suicide attempt]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When Frank is instructing Charlie to help him pack for their trip to New York, he makes a point that Charlie include his dress blues and shoulder pads. It's very subtle, but if you think about it why would Lt. Col Slade, who the next day has tailor-made suits fitted for himself and Charlie as part of what he calls an "upscale urban assignment" and proceeds to wear this throughout their stay in the capital, have needed his full dress uniform?

* BadassGrandpa: Lt. Col. Frank Slade is a tough, take no non-sense man who can still put an insensitive jerk into a Ranger choke hold, dance a tango perfectly, and will defend the integrity of others.

* ObfuscatingStupidity: George Willis Jr. appears affable yet somewhat dim to everyone, but it appears to be an act -- he's rather devious. He immediately begins grooming Charlie to take the fall for everyone. Without Charlie's the experience with The Colonel, he probably would have succeeded, too.
