Mike: Need any more hel pon your term paper? B.D.: No, thanks. I'm not going to finish it. I decided last night to drop out of school and go to Vietnam. Mike: What?... B.D.: I'm talking to my R.O.T.C. officer today. If I'm accepted, I won't have to finish my term paper! It's something I've been planning to do for a long time, anyway!...With any this time next week, while the rest of you guys are slaving away, I'l be winging my way to Vietnam! Mike: To get out of a term paper? B.D.: Pretty crafty, huh?
