Stop being so damn gung ho

Major G.F. Devin:
At ease. That'll be all Sergeant Major.
Sergeant Major in Court:
Aye, aye, sir.
Major G.F. Devin:
Oh, for Christ sake Highway, relax. Stop being so damn gung ho.
Highway:
That's what I am, sir.
Major G.F. Devin:
What do you got about 24 in now Highway?
Highway:
And then some, sir.
Major G.F. Devin:
You know, some men in your position might look forward to retirement. Maybe think about taking the wife on an around the world cruise. But that's not your way, is it? No. Instead you choose to harrang my staff with a request for transfer to a fleet marine force unit. In fact the very unit you got busted out of some time ago for insubordination. Conduct unbecoming.
Highway:
[woman marine enters office]
That's true, major, I have had my differences with some limp dicks.
Major G.F. Devin:
Highway!
[woman leaves]

Major G.F. Devin:
You know, I truly don't know whether to admire ya or resent the living hell out of of ya. Well, I guess it doesn't matter either way because you are out of here effective immediately.
Highway:
Where to, sir?
Major G.F. Devin:
2nd Recon Battalion. 2nd Marine Division. You're goin' home.
Highway:
Yes, sir!
[Turns to leave]

Major G.F. Devin:
Gunny Highway.
Highway:
Sir?
Major G.F. Devin:
Be careful what you wish for. You might just get it.
