Minute Fifteen: From A Goodbye Between Friends to Wrapping Up the Exam

Joining us one last time, we have Rob Kubasko and Kyle Olson from seasons two and three.

In the fifteenth minute of Joe Johnston’s 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger

Bucky and Steve are at odds. Again. This feels like a conversation they’ve had many times before, and likely are only having it again now for the benefit of the audience and for Erskine. But it works so it’s okay.
Bucky starts to leave, but they each say a catchphrase and that reminds them how much they mean to each other, so they have a nice goodbye hug. It’s a great moment, and Bucky gets to walk off with both Bonnie and Connie. Not bad for his last night before deployment.
Steve heads in for his physical and Erskine follows along. What could he be up to?
It’s goodbyes and recruitment shenanigans. Tune in!
