Lt. Col. Frank Slade's (Al Pacino) 'Out of Order' speech to Mr. Trask (James Rebhorn) to defend high school student Charlie Simms (Chris O'Donnell) at a disciplinary hearing and about to be expelled for not revealing what he saw: ("Out of order, I'll show you out of order! You don't know what out of order is, Mr.Trask! I'd show you but I'm too old,... I'm too tired, I'm too f--kin' blind. If I were the man I was five years ago, I'd take a flame-thrower to this place.

Boys like these, younger than these, their arms torn out, their legs ripped off. But there isn't nothin' like the sight of an amputated spirit. There is no prosthetic for that. You think you're merely sending this splendid foot soldier back home to Oregon with his tail between his legs, but I say you are... executin' his soul! And why? Because he's not a Baird man. Baird men. You hurt this boy, you're gonna be Baird bums, the lot of ya. And Harry, Jimmy, Trent, wherever you are out there, F--k You Too!")

Who made 'em? God must have been a f--kin' genius. The hair... They say the hair is everything, you k...now. Have you ever buried your nose in a mountain of curls... just wanted to go to sleep forever? Or lips... and when they touched yours were like... that first swallow of wine... after you just crossed the desert. Tits. Hoo-hah! Big ones, little ones, nipples starin' right out at ya, like secret searchlights. Mmm. Legs. I don't care if they're Greek columns... or secondhand Steinways. What's between 'em... passport to heaven. I need a drink. Yes, Mr Simms, there's only two syllables in this whole wide world worth hearin': pussy. Hah! Are you listenin' to me, son? I'm givin' ya pearls here.")
