In the scene in Korea, while on the road, they stop to help victims of a military attack. Midler and Caan ride with a mortally wounded Marine to a military hospital. As the marine, played by Thom Adcox-Hernandez is bleeding and moaning in pain, he and Eddie Sparks (played by James Caan) have the following brief exchange:
So where ya from, kid?
(winces in pain) Wilkes-Barre.
