By using a CoD flight from Kosovo, a petty officer smuggles a pregnant Albanian woman aboard Harm's carrier. The CAG talks with Harm about his career prospects. Skates feels her mortality, but she concludes that she can survive anything if she can survive Harm's stunts. Harm does some good flying, and he helps a newbie JAG officer in the defense of the smuggler; he interrupts closing arguments; the CAG expresses approval of his performance and his fervor for justice and the law, then he nudges him back toward the JAG Corps. The gunny starts his new duties at the JAG office, and that causes new competitiveness to arise among other staff members.

We salute Captain Pardo for his inspirational courage and ingenuity. See more
At the first briefing (at appx. 12 min mark) a slow pan of the crew shows that Skates is sitting two seats over and one row ahead of Harm. The camera shows the CAG again for a few moments, then pans back to the crews, where Skates and Harm are now sitting next to each other. See more

Harm, if I can survive your crazy stunts, I can survive *anything*!
