Act 2, Scene 5 Summary

This scene opens up on the barracks a few minutes later; Carney has gone to bed after angering the others with his singing. The lights switch on and Toomey bangs loudly on a bunk with his clipboard. When he starts to yell, it is revealed that at 0155 in the morning two members of their regiment were discovered in the bathroom by Sergeant Riley, committing fellatio-oral intercourse. In the wartime U.S. Army, this is considered a criminal offense. One of the soldiers was a Private Harvey J. Lindstrom. The other soldier was seen escaping out an open window with his pants around his ankles; Sergeant Riley chased after him and saw him disappear into Toomey's boys' barracks at 0200 hours. Toomey asks the guilty party to step forward. When no one does, Toomey eventually leaves after looking each of them up and down.
