Maybe you don't have as emotional of a connection to this movie as we (let's be honest, I) do, but that's ok, we'll spell it out for you. Johnny Rico is a member of the mobile infantry, but his highschool sweetheart is a space pilot. However, Dizzy Flores (who also went to his high school, and was on his football team) has followed him to the mobile infantry, kicked ass, and finally has a chance to fuck him. And she tells him that she loves him. And he doesn't say anything in response. And then they go to some scary bug-ridden planet and Dizzy dies. Ugh, Rico!
