Heartwarming / Battle: Los Angeles

  • The one scene where Nantz drops behind enemy lines to check for the control tower. For five seconds he's all alone... and then the rest of the squad drops down behind him. Call it You Are Not Alone by way of pre-emptive Big Damn Heroes, call it the Misfit Mobilization Moment, call it what you want, the fact stands - its frigging beautiful.
  • Nantz remembers the names, ranks, and serial numbers of all four of the Marines who died under his command, and recites them to Lockett verbatim.
