You know what that song reminds me of? It reminds me of Mrs. Rachel Troubowitz and what she said to me the day I left for basic.
Mellish:
What, don't touch me?
Private Reiben:
No, Mrs. Rachel Troubowitz was our super's wife. She comes into my mom's shop to try on a few things, all right? And she's easily like a uh, a 44 double E. These things are massive. And I've got her convinced that she's like a 42D, all right. So we're in the dressing room, she's trying to squeeze into this side cut, silk ribbonned, triple panel girdle with the uh, shelf-lift brassiere and it's beautiful because she's just pouring outta this thing, you know? It's beautiful. And she sees me and she can tell I got a hard on the size of the statue of liberty, all right? And she says to me, "Richard, calm down." And she says, "Now when you're over there, if you see anything that upsets you, if you're ever scared, I want you to close your eyes and think of these. You understand?" So I said, "Yes, ma'am."

Transcript:
Sorry, it's Edith, you know.
You know what
that song reminds me of?
It reminds me of Mrs Rachel Troubowitz
and what she said to me
the day I left for basic.
What, "Don't touch me"?
No. Mrs Rachel Troubowitz
is our super's wife.
She comes into my mom's shop
to try on a few things, all right?
And she's easily, like, a 44 double E.
-Double E?
-These things are massive.
Those are big.
No. And I've got her convinced
that she's, like, a 42 D, all right?
So we're in the dressing room,
she's trying to squeeze
into this side-cut,
silk-ribboned, triple-panel girdle
with the shelf-lift brassiere.
And it's beautiful 'cause she's just
pouring out of this thing, you know?
-Is it really tight?
-No, no. It's beautiful.
And she sees me, and she can tell
I got a hard-on the size
of the Statue of Liberty, all right?
And she says to me,
"Richard, calm down."
And she says, "When you're over there,
"if you see anything that upsets you,
"or if you're ever scared,
I want you to close your eyes
"and think of these. You understand?"
So I said, "Yes, ma'am."
Are you all right, sir?
Yeah, I'm just keeping the rhythm.
Is it true you were
a teacher back home?
Yes.
See, that's something I could never do,
you know.
Not after the way me and my brothers
treated our teachers. No, sir.
I had 1 ,000 kids like you.
I can't see my brothers' faces.
I've been trying,
and I can't see their faces at all.
Has that ever happened to you?
You gotta think of a context.
What does that mean?
Well, you don't just think
about their faces.
You think about something specific,
something you've done together.
Well, when I think of home,
I think of something specific.
I think of my hammock in the backyard,
or my wife pruning the rose bushes
in a pair of my old work gloves.
This one night, two of my brothers came
and woke me up in
the middle of the night,
and they said
they had a surprise for me.
