Zimm: Permission to speak freely, sir.
Rico: For cryin' out loud, speak all you want. Take charge, I am begging you!
Zimm: Not what I want, not why I came. You need to know some hard facts. One. You were assigned to me in basic by an arrangement made by your high school teacher, Jean Razak. Two. You were assigned to Razak's Roughnecks by your per an arrangement made by your basic training instructor, me. Jean and I were friends a long time, usually saw eye to eye. You were no exception. Day one, we had you pegged as a leader.
Zimm: Look in the mirror kid. You're young but your more like Jean Razak if you tried.
Rico: But what if you were wrong? What if Razak was wrong?
Zimm: If you respect Jean Razak as much as you claim, you won't be concerned with proving him wrong.
