Hawkeye: You got a CO who wants to send the kid home, so much so that he's willing the lie about it. And not only is the kid not grateful, he doesn't even like Weems.
BJ: Maybe Dorsey's a malcontent, Weems wants to ship him out.
Hawkeye: No, no. Speaking as a malcontent, he doesn't strike me as the type.
BJ: So what if Weems feels guilty because he got the kid shot?
Hawkeye: If that were the case, he'd want to drive Sturdevant home personally. He wants to keep Sturdevant.
BJ: Sturdevant? He's the white kid, right?
Hawkeye: How can it be racial? It doesn't even make sense. Sending Dorsey home is the biggest favor he can do for him.
