GLEE: H.? Who’s H.? SMILEY: You don’t know who’s H. He doesn’t know who’s H. HAPPY: Didn’t you study history in school? Don’t you know that H. is the happiest soldier who has ever been here in the past decade? GLEE: No, sir. HAPPY: Let me finish. SMILEY: (to GLEE) Let him finish. HAPPY: I was the one who trained him. With my own two hands. SMILEY: His own two hands. HAPPY: (to SMILEY) Let me finish. The past decade was a very difficult one. Instability. Military operations. Reality TV. People were... bleak. H. wouldn’t let that happen. Not on his watch. He planned, set in motion and executed OJR - “Operation Joyous Rejoicing” - to terminate all bleakness in our country. GLEE: And... he succeeded? HAPPY: The happiness levels taken near the northern border were 300 percent higher than average.
