"Generation Kill" Combat Jack (TV Episode 2008) Poster

(TV Mini-Series)


Jon Huertas: Sgt. Antonio Espera


  • Sgt. Antonio 'Poke' Espera : Naw, naw, naw, Brad. You cannot say that you like Pocahontas. The genocide of my people is turned into a cartoon musical? With a singing raccoon? I mean, think about it, Dog. The real story of Pocahontas is about a bunch of white boys who come to my land, bribe the corrupt Indian chief, kill off all the warriors and fuck the Indian princess silly. Would the white man make a story about Auschwitz, where the inmate falls in love with the guard and they go off singing love songs with dancing swastikas?

    Lance Cpl. Harold James Trombley : My great grandfather killed Indians. Up in Michigan. For money.

    Sgt. Antonio 'Poke' Espera : Trombley, you are the first white motherfucker to say something like that to me. Back in the fishing village where I'm from, Los Angeles, most white motherfuckers that talk about their people, they say they got a Native American ancestor. Pretend to be down with me. But here you are coming the other way.

    Sgt. Brad 'Iceman' Colbert : Poke, what the fuck are you anyway? Your wife is half white, you talk like you're black, most of your friends are fucking white, and every once in a while, when you feel like it, you throw in with the Indians. Is it just that you're whatever race happens to be cool at the moment?

    Sgt. Antonio 'Poke' Espera : You got a point, Dog. I don't hang out with Mexicans. Mexicans got $20,000 stereos, lots of guns and every time I go into a liquor store with one, I'm afraid we're gonna rob the place. Mexicans are scary motherfuckers.

    Cpl. Josh Ray Person : What the fuck does any of this have to do with jerking off?

  • Cpl. Walt Hasser : [At night, the platoon is preparing for an attack from the oncoming Iraqi army]  They're movin'. You can see it.

    Cpl. Josh Ray Person : So, we're unsupplied, twenty-four hours ahead of the next nearest Marine and now the Iraqi army has found us. I like the plan, Brad. It works for me.

    Sgt. Brad 'Iceman' Colbert : [Colbert looks at the 'Iraqi army']  Its a town. And it ain't movin'.

    Cpl. Walt Hasser : Are you sure?

    Sgt. Brad 'Iceman' Colbert : It's autokinesis: seeing involuntary muscle movements of your own eyes. Those lights aren't going to come any closer than they are. It's a fuckin' town. Thirty or forty kliks out there at least. How far out did Alpha call this?

    Cpl. Walt Hasser : Fifteen kliks.

    Sgt. Brad 'Iceman' Colbert : [to an approaching Poke Espera]  It's bullshit. There's no armor.

    Sgt. Antonio 'Poke' Espera : There's no armor?

    [They watch as bombs hit the empty space fifteen kliks away] 

    Cpl. Josh Ray Person : Well, apparently the United States Air Force thinks Brad Colbert is full of shit.
