END: Jessep: Danny, believe this. I’d kill you. I’d kill everyone in this room. I’d kill anyone to protect what I am paid to protect. Go home, back behind the lines. Go home where your white uniform won’t get you killed. Give in to what I’m saying. You believe every word, Lt. Kendrick? Kendrick: Ten minutes. Jessep: Meeting’s over, Navy. Anchors Aweigh.
