Zander: Forget it, Ensign. He's mobile infantry. When you're paid to kill it doesn't pay to be polite.
Johnny Rico: You got something to say about mobile infantry?
Zander: You heard me. You want to make something of it... private?
Johnny Rico: No, sir, not with an officer. The M.I. doesn't mint stupid troopers.
