command

He who would be useful, strong, and happy must cease to be a passive receptacle for the negative, beggarly, and impure streams of thought; and as a wise householder commands his servants and invites his guests, so must he learn to command his desires and to say, with authority, what thoughts he shall admit into the mansion of his soul.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Rhymes, meters, stanza forms, etc., are like servants. If the master is fair enough to win their affection and firm enough to command their respect, the result is an orderly happy household.

Aragorn: That is an honorable charge.
Eowyn: To mind the children, to find food and bedding when the men return. What renown is there in that?

William Strannix: The man that did this is a professional. Who is he, and what's he doing running around on my battleship, Mr. Krill?
Commander Krill: Your battleship? You wouldn't be on this battleship if it wasn't for me. He's a cook, plain and simple...
William Strannix: This is not the work of a cook.

Hunter: Captain Ramsey, under operating procedures governing the release of nuclear weapons we cannot launch our missiles unless both you, and I agree.
Capt. Ramsey: [shouting over Hunter] COB, what're you waiting for?
Hunter: This is not a formality sir, this is *expressly* why your command must be repeated. It requires my assent, I *do not* give it and further more, you continue upon this course, and insist upon this launch without confirming this message first...
Capt. Ramsey: [shouting over Hunter] Son of a bitch. As commanding officer of the U.S.S Alabama I order you to place the Ex-O under arrest under charges of mutiny.
Hunter: I will act, backed by the rules of precedence...
Capt. Ramsey: [shouting at COB, over Hunter] I say again, as commanding officer of the U.S.S Alabama, I *order you*...
Hunter: -authority in command, regulations number 815, to relieve, you, of, command, captain.
Capt. Ramsey: -to place the Ex-O under arrest, under charges of mutiny!
[Silence all round]
Capt. Ramsey: COB!
Chief of the Boat: Captain, please, the Ex-O is right. We can't launch unless he concurs.
Capt. Ramsey: [Reads EAM] "To the U.S.S. Alabama: Rebel-controlled missiles being fuelled. Launch codes compromised, dissidents threaten to launch at continental United States, set defcon 2. Immediately launch ten Trident missile sorties." They're FUELLING THEIR MISSILES! We don't have time to fuck around!
Hunter: Sir, I think you need time to think this over.
Capt. Ramsey: *I* DON'T HAVE TO THINK THIS OVER!
Hunter: [stares at Ramsey, nodding] Captain I relieve you of your command of this ship. COB, escort the Captain to his state room, I'm assuming command.
Capt. Ramsey: You're not assuming anything!
Hunter: CHIEF OF THE BOAT, Captain Ramsey is under arrest, *lock* him in his state room!
Chief of the Boat: Captain, please...
Hunter: NOW, COB!More [07/16/2007 12:07:00]
Capt. Ramsey: We have orders in hand. Those orders are to make a pre-emptive launch. Every second that we lose increases the chances that by the time our missiles arrive, their silos could be empty because they've flown their birds and struck us first.
Hunter: Yes sir.
Capt. Ramsey: You know as well as I do that any launch order received without authentication, is no order at all.
Hunter: Yes sir.
Capt. Ramsey: That's our number one rule.
Hunter: [Tries to get a word in] National mil...
Capt. Ramsey: And that rule is the basis for the scenario we've trained on, time and time again. It's a rule we follow without exception.
Hunter: Captain, National Military Command Center knows what sector we're in. They have satellites looking down on us to see if our birds are aloft and if they're *not*, then they give our orders to somebody else. That's why we maintain more than one sub, it's what they call 'redundancy'!
Capt. Ramsey: I know about redundancy, Mr Hunter.
Hunter: All I'm saying...
[Ramsey walks off]
Hunter: [Follows Ramsey, lowers his voice] All I'm saying Captain, is that we have backup. Now it's our duty, *not* to launch until we can confirm.
Capt. Ramsey: You're presuming we have other submarines out there, ready to launch. Well as Captain, I must assume our submarines could've been taken out by other Akulas. We can play these games all night Mr Hunter but uh, I don't have the luxury of your presumptions.
Hunter: Sir...
Capt. Ramsey: Mr Hunter, we have rules that are not open to interpretation, personal intuition, gut feelings, hairs on the back of your neck, little devils or angels sitting on your shoulder. We're all very well aware of what our orders are and what those orders mean. They come down from our Commander in Chief. They contain no ambiguity.
Hunter: Captain...
Capt. Ramsey: Mr Hunter. I've made a decision. I'm Captain of this boat. NOW SHUT THE FUCK UP!More [07/16/2007 12:07:00]

Zimmer: We're not going to let this go down with the Ex-O and Helm.
Peter "Weps" Ince: We're not?
Zimmer: No. We're not?
Lt. Bobby Dougherty: We've been following the captain for years, and now this asshole Hunter shows up, and we're supposed to follow him because he said so?
Peter "Weps" Ince: you're not supposed to, you were ordered to. That's what this is about, proper orders.
Lt. Bobby Dougherty: Proper Orders? He has proper orders, he wo'nt act on them
Peter "Weps" Ince: He's in command now! If they order him to launch, we'll launch, and we'll blow'em all to hell. But, I rather go down myself then get this one wrong.
Lt. Darik Westergard: Weaps. Our prcedures are clear. In the abscent of a contravening order and in a situation like this, we follow the orders in hand.
Zimmer: That's right. You know how many checks that we have to go through to make sure that a message is authentic? The Ex-O agreed to those orders, now he just wants to throw them away they do'nt count?
Lt. Bobby Dougherty: He's lost his nerve.
Peter "Weps" Ince: Bullshit! I know this guy Bobby!
Lt. Darik Westergard: Weaps. We're prepaired for launch. How can we just sit here and do nothing when they're preparied to launch at us?
Peter "Weps" Ince: Well, we do'nt know that for sure that's the whole point. That is why he needs time to confirm the message.
Zimmer: That's the whole fuckin' point is that we do'nt got time! Redchenko is fueling his birds and why do you think he's doing that? Huh? Why? Because you do'nt put on a condum until you're gonna fuck!More [07/16/2007 12:07:00]
