Binh: How long you blind?

Steve: A long time. I worked in a storage facility in Saigon. I thought it was a crate of beer. Turned out to be explosives.

Binh: You're still alive...

Steve: Yeah, that's what they said. One minute I'm in Saigon, the next I'm in a hospital in Maryland, and six months had passed. Woke up, couldn't see, didn't know where I was. Some assholes tell me I'm lucky.

Steve: We had a boy. He was just a baby. He had the eyes of an old man, even at 2 months. Maybe they all do, we didn't know.

Binh: Why you no go back?

Steve: Go back? See the old sights? No, I left her to take care of the child alone. I didn't think she needed a blind man to look after.
