** Still, almost single-handedly sinking the entire defense is proof that Galloway was not cut out for trial law (or at least that Aaron Sorkin's blind idealism is almost as bad as his characterization of women).

* It's established that Galloway is much better at research and "paper law" than "trial law", but how can anyone who works in any kind of law think that "strenuously objecting" to a testimony the judge has already allowed would work? More so, how can someone as supposedly adept at research as Galloway, in all the time that they were mounting their defense, not figure out that Downey was not in the room when Kendrick gave the order?

** Galloway's pretty passionate, the situation probably got to her. As for the situation with Downey, Downey considers an order from Kendrick through Dawson as effectively the same thing, as would Dawson, and the two men just didn't think to clarify that only Dawson received the order himself.

** Actually, Downey is a fine choice even if things go horribly wrong. Remember that Kendrick only gave the order to Dawson, while Downey was dealing with the jeep blow-out. So Downey can't provide any testimony against Kendrick. All he can do is finger the fall guy: Dawson.

** Basically, you can't give him a by-the-book punishment when the results were that damn good. In reality he would probably have been given a slap on the wrist and some sort of shit-duty for a while. Punishment for his actions, but not enough to discourage good deeds from others.

** I can attest to this. Working in a hospital, the codes are treated as one word. "We had a lot of Code Pinks today." If there were a lot of different ones called, it would be "We had a lot of codes today." The same is done with the Dr.'s. Dr. Quick is singular, Dr. Quicks is plural.

*** Well, he DID screw up by alienating the judge. After that point, the judge starts giving Kaffee more slack and ignoring prosecution objections. Not to mention, he didn't need to do much. His retort to the Colonel was akin to saying "You're in MY house now." Which would be an extreme slap in the face to a guy like Jessup.
