Pat: As son of the Division Commander, Sir, I'd like the opportunity to stand in front of my men on my own the first time.
Frank: I see. And you think having the Brigade Commander with you would get in your way. Is that right?
Pat: Yes Sir. It is.
Frank: Well now I have a problem, Lieutenant, because I promised your father I'd look after you once you got here. I think I've done that now. So if I got a message compelling me to return to McCarther immediately, I think General Clarke would understand, don't you?
Pat: Yes Sir, I think he would Sir.
