Congressman #1:
Did you, or did you not confront Colonel Burton at the Pentagon pharmacy and say to him, "If I hear one more word about your - expletive deleted - report, you're gonna be sitting on your brains"?



Major General Partridge:
Does that sound like me, sir?

Major General Partridge:
Just because the tests didn't turn out the way Colonel Burton thought they would, was no reason to suspect there was anything devious going on.



Madame Chairwoman:
I ask you General, filling the fuel tanks with WATER before a test to check the combustibility of those tanks, that wasn't devious?



Major General Partridge:
If the tanks had been filled with fuel, there's a good chance the vehicle would have exploded.



Congressman #1:
Isn't that the point?



Major General Partridge:
If the vehicle had exploded, we wouldn't be able to run additional tests!

[Burton just destroryed a door in a test]



Lt. Colonel James Burton:
I'll buy the army a new goddamn door.



Col. J.D. Bock:
You can't afford a door like that; do you see what it stood up to?



Lt. Colonel James Burton:
Exactly! Some SPITBALL from Romania!

Major General Partridge:
All right, let's just make the fuselage in Michigan and the landing gear in Mississippi! Yeah, by all means, let's keep Congressman Groves and his blood-sucking buddies happy!

[Dalton opens a shell casing that was in the Bradley during testing]



Lt. Colonel James Burton:
Sand.



Sgt. Benjamn Dalton:
That's correct, sir.



Lt. Colonel James Burton:
Tell me, Sergeant. Has anyone around here ever mentioned the term "court martial" recently?



Sgt. Benjamn Dalton:
No, sir.



Lt. Colonel James Burton:
Really? That's truly amazing, Sergeant. Because here we are, watching water leak out of the gas tanks, and sand spill out of the ammunition, right before test to find out whether the damn thing is safe! And no one mentioned the word "court martial"? Why is that, Sergeant?



Sgt. Benjamn Dalton:
We were under orders, sir.



Lt. Colonel James Burton:
And do you believe that following those orders is conscionable, Sergeant?



Sgt. Benjamn Dalton:
It doesn't matter what I think or do, sir. One way or another, one of you weekend warriors from Washington will always make sure the tests come out the way you want them to.



Lt. Colonel James Burton:
I'm not here to manipulate test results, Sergeant. I'm here to learn the truth.



Sgt. Benjamn Dalton:
The truth? We get a new white knight here every six months, sir, and they all start out like you - big speeches that turn to shit until your next promotion comes due, and then it's business as usual.



Lt. Colonel James Burton:
Really? And where did you develop this lousy attitude, Sergeant?



Sgt. Benjamn Dalton:
Right here, sir. Watching guys like you.
