Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: No, let me explain them *for you*. You are meddling in affairs that are none of your business...

P.O. Jennifer Coates: All I wanted was...

Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: No...

[standing, removes his glasses and leans forward on his desk]

Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: Petty Officer, I am not interested in what you want, I'm interested in what I need, and what I need is an administrative assistant who does her job and that job only. Is that understood?

P.O. Jennifer Coates: Sir, I'm still defining the parameters of my duties...

[the Admiral glares at her]

P.O. Jennifer Coates: with your input, of course, being paramount.

P.O. Jennifer Coates: No, sir. Why do you ask?

Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: [Stands up and replaces his glasses, sighs, and then in a grumbling tone] Starting to parse the truth like a lawyer!

P.O. Jennifer Coates: No, sir. I am, however starting to look deeper into the truth, like a psychologist. 'The Human Mind, 101'; the course I'm taking on line.

Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: [Glares at her again, then in a forced whisper] Dismissed!

P.O. Jennifer Coates: Aye, aye, sir!
