If you gave an order that Santiago wasn't to be touched... and your orders are always followed... then why would Santiago be in danger? Why would it be necessary, to transfer him off the base? Santiago was a substandard Marine. - He was being transferred - That's not what you said! You said he was being transferred because he was in grave danger. That's correct! You said He's in danger. I said, :Grave danger?: You said, :Is there any other kind?: - I recall what I said. - I can have it read back to you. I know what I said! I don't have to have it read back to me, like an . . . Then why the two orders? Colonel. . .? Sometimes men take matters into their own hands. You've made it clear that your men never take matters into their own hands Your men follow orders, or people die. So Santiago should have been in danger, should he? - You snotty little bastard. - I'd like to ask for a recess. - I'd like an answer to the question. - The court will wait for an answer. If Lieutenant Kendrick gave an order... that Santiago wasn't to be touched... then why did he have to be transferred? Colonel. . .? Lieutenant Kendrick ordered the Code Red because that's what you told him to do! - Object! - And then you cut these guys loose! - I'll hold you in contempt. - You doctored the logbook! - Damn it, Kaffee! - Consider yourself in contempt. Colonel Jessup, did you order the Code Red? - You don't have to answer that. - I'll answer the question. - You want answers? - I think I'm entitled! - You want answers? - I want the truth! You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls... and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have the luxury, You have the luxury, of not knowing what I know that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives! You don't want the truth because deep down you don't talk about... you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall! We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself... to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the freedom I provide... and then questions the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to! Did you order the Code Red? - I did the job- - Did you order the Code Red? You're goddamned right I did! Please the court, I suggest the members be dismissed... so that we can move to an immediate Article 39-A session. The witness has rights. Captain Ross? Jack. . .? The members of the court will retire to an anteroom until further instructed. All rise. What the hell is this? Colonel, what's going on? I did my job. I'd do it again. I'm gonna get on a plane and go on back to my base. You're not going anywhere, Colonel. M.P.s, guard the colonel. Yes, sir.

I think Nicholson complemented Cruise's character perfectly.
