    • QUOTES (3)

      • Col Al-Barzan: A woman like you needs a strong hand.
        Meg: I already have a strong hand- my own!

      • Cmdr Lindsey: (after Harm is told how he's going to help the Cpl escape prison) Lieutenant, you don't have much confidence in our defense.
        Briefing Officer: Do you, sir?
        Cmdr Lindsey: No. (Harm gives his a look) I just don't like being counted out before we enter the courtroom.

        Corporal: Yup. Prostitute Duke fell for.
        Meg: Are you comparing me to a prostitute?
        Corporal: No ma'am, I didn't say that...
        Harm: I did. And I meant she was spunky like you.
