** Downplayed in that said epiphany is not the deal-breaker game-changer in itself - it just leads Kaffee's thought in the right direction ("how can I make my allegation that there was no transfer order plausible?") and then prepares the ground for the following IndyPloy to save the day.

** A more plausible alternative explanation, however, is that it was not the first time when impulsive Jessup sarcastically gives insane orders, so the subordinate just knew that the reverse order will be incoming in a few seconds and didn't actually intend to call anyone. If you look at Markinson's reaction, you can tell that he knew that his cause was entirely lost the second Jessup began to give the order.

* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: When disrespect is shown between Kaffee and Jessup, Judge Randolph immediately sets everyone straight. After Kaffee is corrected and Jessup is seen smirking, Randolph immediately and tersely reminds him that he is in charge, sternly telling him, "(T)he 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."

* ShipTease: Kaffee and Galloway eventually develop a mutual attraction, and the latter actually shows up at the former's house to ask them out on the spot; however, it doesn't go anywhere, and they both go their separate ways at the end of the film.

*** The film tries to HandWave this by saying Jessup is about to be appointed to the National Security Council (most likely as either Chairman of the Joint Chiefs or the Director of National Intelligence) and thus he has enough political capital to be able to pull the necessary strings to make the records of the flight vanish. However this is actually averted in the original play; Jessup is able to cover up the flight taking off but ''not'' the flight landing, and Kaffee is able to obtain the logs of the latter through Markinson.

** Similarly the jeep driver's assertion that the Cubans "might want tot take a shot" at a Navy officer wearing white. Doing so unprovoked would be an unambiguous act of war. Whatever one might say about the Castro regime, it's safe to say that starting a war with the US is not high on its list of goals.
