Senator Lillian De Haven of Texas (Creator/AnneBancroft) publicly criticizes the United States Navy for its failure to integrate both male and female recruits to all its services. She strikes a deal, arranging for a series of test cases. A single woman will join each branch currently fully-staffed by males service and try to perform as well as her male colleagues. The first test case has Lieutenant Jordan O' Neil (Moore) joining the U.S. Navy Combined Reconnaissance Team.

* PunctuatedForEmphasis: "SUCK... MY... DICK!" Made into a CrowningMomentOfAwesome by the fact that a shorn-haired and yet STILL uber-beddable Creator/DemiMoore (yes, a woman) is shouting it -- and into the face of a SuperSoldier of a NAVY SEAL who's acting as the mentor and had spent the last few minutes [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown kicking the crap]] [[WouldHitAGirl out of her]].

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: C.O. Salem gives one to Lt. O'Neil when he talks about the concessions he's had to make to accommodate her:
-->'''Salem:''' Most of all what I resent is your perfume, however subtle, interfering with the scent of my fine three dollar and seventy-nine cent cigar, which I will put out this instant if [[FreudWasRight the phallic nature of it]] happens to offend your '''goddamn fragile sensibilities!'''

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: The all-black office uniform with black slacks and long-sleeved shirts worn by Lt. O'Neil and the Captain when she arrives at the training center, while technically a proper uniform for the time period, is ''extremely'' rare in everyday use. Most officers would use a khaki version of that uniform with short sleeves.

* TrainingFromHell: Jordan experiences Navy SEAL training, which is generally considered among the toughest, if not the toughest, training in the US military, including actual tortures like waterboarding (so they can learn to withstand torture if they fall into enemy hands).
** TruthInTelevision: SERE[[note]]Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape[[/note]] school is universally reviled by everyone that goes through it ''and'' everyone that runs it, specifically because normal, reasonable circumstances are thrown out. The only rules are: nothing sexual, and the trainee can't be ''killed''. Everything else is fair game. It messes with the trainees' heads (the thought that "They can't be allowed to do this" takes a while to go away), and the trainers' heads.

** The command master chiefs of any given command rarely involves himself with direct work in the same way Urgayle does with his instructors. The command master chief's job is to be the liason to the commanding officer in regards to matters and concerns involving enlisted personnel at the command. In a training command, he would have a say regarding the training cirriculum and preparation and in the guidelines as to how the instructors go about fulfilling such, but he personally would not be involved in the training evolutions himself.

* RapeAsDrama[=/=]RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: During the POW training, when Urgayle is brutally beating Jordan in front of the male trainees, he starts to cut off her pants as if he's about to rape her, simulating what would most likely happen if they were captured for real.
