YMMV / Heartbreak Ridge

  • What an Idiot!: Early in the movie, Stitch cons Highway into paying for his meal and strands him at a rest stop, forcing Highway to hitch a ride to the base. Highway is wearing his uniform so Stitch knows he is dealing with a Gunnery Sergeant and there is a good chance that they are going to the same Marine base. The base is fairly big but there is still a decent chance that they will meet again and a pissed off Gunnery Sergeant can make life hell for a private like Stitch. Stitch stealing from a senior Marine NCO is already a very poor life choice but he does so without first verifying where Highway is stationed and what unit he is serving in.
