* Topper's first meeting with Ramada. Before he even goes in her office, he sees an electrician donning safety gear and getting out a wide variety of tools... only to scale a ladder and start replacing a burned out light bulb. After a brief conversation, he opts to leave and Ramada warns him to "be careful out there", warning him that he's going to get hurt if he doesn't watch himself. He assumes she's talking about his career as a pilot; she actually meant the series of live electrical cables hanging out of the roof behind him.

'''Officer''': It could be ''days''.\\
'''Benson''': (slightly annoyed) ...Then put some food in the life raft, for God's sake, man. Do I have to think of everything? We'll tape his favorite shows, he won't miss anything!

--> '''Block''': Sir, may I say something? I know Harley acted irresponsibly. But his kind lives on the edge. Always willing to take a chance. Now, we need Topper for this mission for just that reason.\\
'''Benson''': I like your thinking, Colonel. Besides, Thompson wasn't that good a pilot anyway. He only had a small family. The kids are a pain in the ass. The wife's on the sauce. [[SpeakIllOfTheDead Poor bastard's better off dead.]]
