* Jessup intimidating Kaffee upon the end of their first meeting:
--> '''Kaffee''': Colonel, I'll just need a copy of Santiago's transfer order.\\
'''Jessup''': What's that?\\
'''Kaffee''': Santiago's transfer order. You guys have paperwork on it. I just need it for the file.\\
'''Jessup''': For the file?\\
'''Kaffee''': Yeah.\\
'''Jessup''': Of course you can have a copy of the transfer order for the file. I'm here to help in any way I can.\\
'''Kaffee''': Thank you.\\
'''Jessup''': You believe that, don't you, Danny? That I'm here to help you any way I can?\\
'''Kaffee''': Of course. ''(is about to walk away)''\\
'''Jessup''': But you have to ask me nicely.\\
'''Kaffee''': ...I beg your pardon?\\
'''Jessup''': You have to ask me nicely. See, I can deal with the bullets, the bombs and the blood. I don't want money and I don't want medals. What I ''do'' want is for you to stand there, in that faggoty white uniform, and with your Harvard mouth, extend me some ''fucking'' courtesy. You got to ask me nicely.\\
'''Kaffee''': ...Colonel Jessep, if it's not too much trouble... I'd like a copy of the transfer order. Sir.\\
'''Jessup''': ''(congenial again)'' No problem.

--->'''Jessup:''' ''Colonel''.\\
'''Kaffee:''' What's that?\\
'''Jessup:''' I would appreciate it if he would address me as 'colonel' or 'sir'. I believe I've earned it.\\
'''Randolph:''' Defense counsel will address the witness as 'colonel' or 'sir'.\\
'''Jessup:''' I don't know what the hell kind of unit you're running here...\\
'''Randolph:''' And the witness will address this court as 'judge' or 'your honor'. *gives Jessup a look* I'm quite certain ''I've'' earned it. Take your seat, Colonel.

** Arguably more awesome is Galloway's response to his question of why she likes Dawson and Downey so much. It actually causes his anger at her failure in court and at the defendants to peter out:
--> '''Galloway''': "Because they stand on a wall and say, "Nothing's going to hurt you tonight, not on my watch.""

* This line, which pretty much traps Jessup during the final trial:
--> '''Kaffee''': 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??

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hGvQtumNAY climactic scene]] in which Jessep takes the stand: no music, no special effects or camera tricks, no spectacular feats of heroics; just the energy of Aaron Sorkin's screenplay and two powerhouse actors. The scene couldn't have been any more intense if the building had been on fire.

--> '''Kaffee:''' You trashed the law! But hey, we understand, you're permitted. You have a greater responsibility than we can possibly fathom. You provide us with a blanket of freedom. We live in a world that has walls and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns, and nothing is going to stand in your way of doing it. Not Willie Santiago, not Dawson and Downey, not Markinson, not 1,000 armies, not the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and not the Constitution of the United States! ''That's the truth isn't it Colonel?'' '''''I can handle it.'''''

* While the original play isn't as well known as the film, it still has its moments. One of them comes in the climactic final examination of Jessup: he's just given his famous MotiveRant but Kaffee proved that he was responsible for issuing the Code Red (note that in the play Jessup's lies are exposed because Kaffee is able to prove the existence of an earlier transport flight from Gitmo thus proving that Santiago was never going to be transferred). Kaffee then lays into Jessup with a ''brutal'' TheReasonYouSuckSpeech which is mainly an IronicEcho of his MotiveRant.

* '''Lt. Kaffee:''' Thank you for playing "should we or should we not FOLLOW THE ADVICE OF THE GALACTICALLY STUPID"!
** Do you mean this was one of the actor's best breakdowns or something? Because Kaffee's drunken Jerkass outburst wasn't quite awesome, given the circumstances.
