More from A Few Good Men

Col. Nathan Jessup: I run my unit they way I run my unit. You wanna investigate me, roll the dice and take your chances. I eat breakfast three hundred yards from four thousand Cubans trained to kill me. So don’t think for one second you can come down here, flash a badge, and make me nervous.

Sam Weinberg: “I strenuously object?” Is that how it’s done? Hm? “Objection, your Honor!” “Overruled” “No, no. I STRENUOUSLY object.” “Oh! You strenuously object. Then I’ll take some time and reconsider.”

Sam: Why do you like them so much?
Jo: ‘Cause they stand on a wall, and they say “Nothing’s gonna hurt you tonight. Not on my watch.”

Kaffee: I’m sorry, your time’s run out, what do we have for the losers judge? Well for our defendants, it’s a lifetime in exotic Fort Leavenworth. And for defense counsel Kaffee… that’s right… it’s a court martial! Yes, Johnny! After falsely accusing a highly decorated marine officer of conspiracy and perjury, Lieutenant Kaffee will have a long and prosperous career teaching typewriter maintenance at the Rocko Club School for Women. Thank you for playing “should or should we not, follow the advice of the galactically stupid?”

West: Joanne, why don’t you get yourself a cup of coffee?
Jo: Thank you, sir, I’m fine.
Joanne, I’d like you to leave the room so we can talk about you behind your back.
Jo: Certainly, sir.
