* HarsherInHindsight: When Schultz forces Sefton out of the barracks for the "air raid," he asks him, "Do you want to be killed?!" Sefton dry responds, "Not particularly..." and leaves.

He knew he needed to act, and SOON, to save his own life.]]



* MoreHeroThanThou: When the men were going to pull a man's dogtag out to select someone to save Dunbar, Price grabs it and claims this. He wants to volunteer to atone for his lousy job as Security. Sefton picks now to do the big reveal.
