"Space: Above and Beyond: Pilot (#1.1)" (1995)
Gunnery Sergeant Frank Bougus: Your current orders are to take 48 hours' leave.
Lt. Nathan West: Sir, ship us out, sir.
Capt. Shane Vansen: Sir, why have we been on accelerated training if we're not going to be used, sir?
Gunnery Sergeant Frank Bougus: Listen. All we know is what you people found last week. We have no idea what lies ahead. We know basically nothing about the enemy - numbers, weapons, tactics. That is why we have been LOSING and LOSING BADLY in every battle of this war!
[quietly]
Gunnery Sergeant Frank Bougus: Don't be in such a hurry.

Lt. Nathan West: You're letting them throw away our lives. We believed in you!
Lt. Col. Tyrus Cassius 'T.C.' McQueen: Now the only thing you can believe in is each other.

[last lines]
Lt. Nathan West: [narrating] Elsewhere, stars are born. Other star systems, older, larger, continue to breathe. The Solar System dies of crib death. If that's what it takes, then okay. If I must wait that long, then all right. Because when I think of this, nothing is more desirable than the hope of watching that last day, when the sun flickers out with you beside me. We'll sit alone on a dark chunk of ice at the top of the world, and the stars above, beyond, and between us
[throws his valor medal]
Lt. Nathan West: will never shine brighter as we drift away into space.
