|Kevin Pollak (Lt. Weinberg): Cmdr.
Galloway, Lt. Kaffee is considered to be the best litigator in our office. He
successfully plea bargained 44 cases in 9 months.
Tom Cruise (Kaffee): One
more and I get a set of steak knives.
Jack Nicholson (Col.
Jessup): You see Danny, I can deal with the bullets, and the bombs, and the
blood. I don't want money, and I don't want medals. What I do want is for you
to stand there in that faggoty white uniform and with your Harvard mouth extend
me some fucking courtesy. You gotta ask me nicely.
(Col. Jessup): Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have
to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I
have more responsibility here than you could possibly fathom. You weep for
Santiago, and you curse the marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury
of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved
lives. And that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you,
saves lives. I know deep down in places you dont talk about at parties, you
don't want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor,
code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending
something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the
inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket
of the very freedom I provide, then question the manner in which I provide it.
I prefer you said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you
pick up a weapon, and stand to post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you
think you are entitled to!
Jack Nicholson (Col. Jessup): You
Tom Cruise (Kaffee): I think I'm entitled.
Nicholson (Col. Jessup): You want answers?
Tom Cruise (Kaffee):
I want the truth!
Jack Nicholson (Col. Jessup): You can't handle the
Jack Nicholson (Col. Jessup): You fuckin' 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,
Tom Cruise (Kaffee): 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 bitch.
