Just what the hell do you think you're doing

Maj. Malcolm A. Powers:
[approaching Highway]
Just what the hell do you think you're doing?
Highway:
Just enjoying the view, sir.
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers:
Well, you disobeyed an order. I told you to stay in contact and not take this hill without me. Damn it! Get on your feet, Highway!
Highway:
With all due respect, sir, you're beginning to bore the hell out of me.
[sees the helicopter landing and Colonel Meyers getting out]

Colonel Meyers:
Who's in charge here?
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers:
I am, sir. Major Malcolm Powers.
Colonel Meyers:
Did you lead this assault?
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers:
Sir, Leutenant Ring and Gunnery Sergeant Highway disobeyed a direct order. I told them to wait for support but they went up this hill anyway.
Colonel Meyers:
[to Highway]
Why?
Highway:
We're Marines, sir. We're paid to adapt, to improvise.
Lieutenant M.R. Ring:
Sir, I gave the order to take this hill.
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers:
Ring, this is going to ruin your career.
Colonel Meyers:
Are you new to the infantry, Major?
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers:
Yes, sir. Just came over from supply.
Colonel Meyers:
Were you good at that?
Maj. Malcolm A. Powers:
Yes, sir!
Colonel Meyers:
Well then, stick to it because you're a walking cluster fuck as an infantry officer. My men are hard chargers, Major! Leutenant Ring and Gunny Highway took a handfull of young fire pissers, exercised some personal initiative and kicked ass!
[to Lt Ring]

Colonel Meyers:
Good job, Leutenant!
Lieutenant M.R. Ring:
Thank you, sir!
Colonel Meyers:
Leutenant, see to it that those students are escorted back to Cherry Point.
Lieutenant M.R. Ring:
Yes, sir!
Colonel Meyers:
[to Powers]
Well, you're dismissed!
[Highway and Choozoo approach]

Colonel Meyers:
What the hell are you two sorry assed individuals looking at? Get the hell off of my LZ.
Highway, Choozoo:
Semper Fi!
Colonel Meyers:
Oo-rah!
Highway:
Well, Chooz, I guess we're not 0-1-1 anymore.

... exercised some personal initiative,
and kicked ass!

are escorted back to Cherry Point.
You're dismissed!
What are you two sorry-assed individuals
looking at?
Get out of my LZ.
Semper Fi.
Chooz, I guess we're not 0-1-1 now.

- All right.
- Got anybody here?
- No.
But it's a beautiful day
and I'm ready to play.
