[Lt. Greenwald has just questioned Captain Queeg about the incident involving the yellow die marker
] Capt. Blakely
: Mr. Greenwald, there can be no more serious charge against an officer than cowardice under fire. Lt. Barney Greenwald
: Sir, may I make one thing clear? It is not the defense's contention that Lieutenant Commander Queeg is a coward. Quite the contrary. The defense assumes that no man who rises to command a United States naval ship can possibly be a coward and that, therefore, if he commits questionable acts under fire, the explanation must be elsewhere.
