Maj. Gen. Joe Barrett:
I did not come here because I was better or smarter than General Dawson. I'm here because I was a dogface once, and I'm supposed to have a better understanding of the men. I'm also a dropkick, so you might have a problem with the way I talk - but I guarantee you, you won't have a problem understanding me. Now I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S WRONG AROUND HERE, BUT THERE'S AN ODOR OF DECAYING MORALE THAT I CAN SMELL A MILE AWAY! Men who FEEL licked are gonna GET licked!
Let's go! Let's go! I ain't got all day! Come on, stupid, come on!
[Notices that the next man holding out his mess kit to him is none other than the general]
Oh, I'm sorry, sir, I didn't recognize you... Hey, quick! Get something special for the general!
