Whatever happened to saluting an officer when he leaves the room? (Dawson stands up and shoves his hands in his pockets)
(Judge dismisses the jury after Jessep's revelation on the stand about the Code Red) What is this? What's going on? I did my job, I'd do it again! (stands up defiantly)
I'm gonna get on a plane and go on back to my base.
You're not going anywhere, Colonel. MP's... guard the Colonel! (MPs take post)
What the hell is this?
Colonel Jessep, you have the right to remain silent. Any statement you make...
I'm being charged with a crime? Is that what this is? I'm being charged with a crime? This is funny. That's what this is. This is... (turning to Kaffee and lunging at him)
... I'm gonna rip the eyes out of your head and pi** into your dead skull! You fu**** with the wrong Marine!
Colonel Jessep! Do you understand these rights as I have just read them to you?
(contemptuously) You fu****' people... you have no idea how to defend a nation. All you did was weaken a country today, Kaffee. That's all you did. You put people's lives in danger. Sweet dreams, son.
Don't call me son. I'm a lawyer, and an officer in the United States Navy, and you're under arrest you son of a bi***. (glares at Jessep)
The witness is excused.
Lt. Kendrick, was Lance Corporal Dawson given a below average rating on this last report because you learned he had been sneaking food to Private Bell?
Not so fast. Lieutenant?
Lance Corporal Dawson was given a below average rating because he had committed a crime.
A crime? What crime did he commit? Lieutenant Kendrick? Dawson brought a hungry guy some food... what crime did he commit?
He disobeyed an order!
And because he did. Because he exercised his own set of values. Because he made a decision about the welfare of another Marine which was in conflict with an order of yours he was punished. Isn't that right.
Lance Corporal Dawson disobeyed an order!
Yeah, but it wasn't a real order, was it? After all, it's peace time. He wasn't being asked to secure a hill or advance on a beach head. I mean, surely a Marine of Dawson's intelligence can be trusted to determine, on his own, which are the really important orders and which orders might, say, be morally questionable? Lieutenant Kendrick? Can he? Can Dawson determine on his own which orders he's going to follow?
No, he cannot.
A lesson he learned after the Curtis Bell incident, am I right?
I would think so.
You know so don't you, Lieutenant.
Lieutenant Kendrick, one final question. If you had ordered Dawson to give Santiago a code red...
(Interrupting, exasperated) I SPECIFICALLY ORDERED THOSE MEN NOT TO TOUCH SANTIAGO!
...would it be reasonable to think he would have disobeyed you again?
Lieutenant, don't answer that!
You don't have to, I'm through.
Lieutenant Kendrick, did you order Lance Corporal Dawson and Private Downey to give Willie Santiago a code red? (Kendrick initially refuses to answer, sensing he's been caught lying)
Lieutenant Kendrick! Did you...
No, I did not!
So this is what a courtroom looks like.
"I strenuously object?" Is that how it works? Hm? "Objection." "Overruled." "Oh, no, no, no. No, I STRENUOUSLY object." "Oh. Well, if you strenuously object then I should take some time to reconsider."
How the hell is your dad, Danny?
He passed away seven years ago, sir.
Don't I feel like the fu***** as*****?
Not at all sir.
I don't think you're fit to handle the defense.
You don't even *know* me. Ordinarily it takes someone *hours* to discover I'm not fit to handle a defense.
