    • QUOTES (1)

      • (Hummel has just risked his life to save a pinned-down Kirby during a skirmish. Kirby and their squad congratulate Hummel for this, but...)
        Hummel: It looked to me like this guy needed help, Sarge, so -
        Saunders: When I give you an order, I want it followed!
        Kirby: Now, wait a minute, Sarge. He saved my neck just now!
        Saunders: Nobody asked you, Kirby! I'm sick of green kids like him getting their tails shot up before they realize what's going on! (The squad members look at each other in astonishment, as Saunders glowers at Hummel.) From now on, I'll do your thinking for you. (to everyone) Move out!
