C.O. Salem: [after Jordan demands that he remove the dual standard] One standard.
Jordan: Just treat me the same. No better, no worse.
C.O. Salem: You're gonna get everything you want, O'Neil. I just wonder if you want what you're gonna get.
Jordan: Hoo-yah, sir.


How am I supposed to fit in with these guys when you've got me setup as an outsider? You've given me a different set of rules. The answer is, I can't. I mean really, why didn't you just issue me a pink petticoat to wear around the base?

Sergeant Cortes, however brief your stint with this command might be, there are two words you will learn to put together: Team-Mate.

I'll never live this one down.

[on why she started Lt. O'Neil on the SEAL program in the first place] Truthfully, I never expected you to do so damn well! I figured you'd ring out in two weeks, bing bang it's over, and we're popular. In Washington, you don't even need the Ten Commandments when you're popular!

Does it?

C.O. Salem: "No, sir" WHAT?
Jordan: The shape doesn't bother me. Just the goddamn sweet stench.
