Lt. Loren Singer Quotes

08x09 - When the Bough Breaks Season 8 / Episode 9: - When the Bough Breaks

Lt. Loren Singer: You'll find my report quite thorough, sir.
Captain Johnson: I'm not disputing your attention to detail, Lieutenant Singer. I just happen to disagree with your findings.
Lt. Loren Singer: A man was killed when that arresting wire snapped, sir. Another was seriously injured.
Captain Johnson: Are you under the impression, lieutenant, that this is the first time a tragedy like this has befallen a carrier during flight operations?
Lt. Loren Singer: No, sir. I just want to know why it happened on *this* carrier.
Captain Johnson: You know why.
Lt. Loren Singer: The boatswain's mates were collecting foreign object debris. A broken piece of launching rail that should have been removed prior to the landing of the second F-18. An arresting wire that shouldn't have broken snapped while trapping a plane that should have been waved off.
Captain Johnson: In a perfect world, Lieutenant Singer, every piece of FOD would be removed prior to the next landing. Every trap would be like clockwork, and no one but the enemy would experience casualties. But we do not live in that world. Had those boatswain's mates not acted, you'd be investigating the loss of an aircraft now and God knows how many fatalities.
Lt. Loren Singer: I am aware of that, sir.
Captain Johnson: You want to cut to the chase, then? Save me some reading? What is it you're after?
Lt. Loren Singer: For one thing, I want to court martial all the personnel that had a hand in putting those men in that position in the first place.
Captain Johnson: [waving Singer closer] You have *got* to be kidding?
Lt. Loren Singer: I assure you, sir, I'm quite serious.
Captain Johnson: Who exactly are we talking about here?
Lt. Loren Singer: Your landing signal officer, sir. Your air boss, the arresting gear department chief, the LSO's assistant, the arresting gear operator petty officer, the pri-fly lens operator, the...
Captain Johnson: [interrupting] That's enough. Thank you, lieutenant.
Lt. Loren Singer: I gave due consideration to these recommendations, sir.
Captain Johnson: I said that's enough.
Lt. Loren Singer: [standing at attention] Aye, aye, sir.

P.O. Jason Tiner: Lieutenant Singer, your itinerary, ma'am.

Lt. Loren Singer: Yes, I will.
P.O. Jason Tiner: Anything further I can do to expedite your departure, ma'am?
Lt. Loren Singer: Are you being friendly or eager?
08x03 - Family Business Season 8 / Episode 3: - Family Business

Cmdr. Sturgis Turner: You asked me before to conceal the fact that you lied about being a Jew during the Mars case, and I've decided to do so. You have nothing to worry about.
Lt. Loren Singer: I appreciate it, sir.
Cmdr. Sturgis Turner: You are now Jewish as far as I'm concerned, as long as you act accordingly.
Lt. Loren Singer: What, you're going to hold me to it, sir?
Cmdr. Sturgis Turner: Every chance I get.
Lt. Loren Singer: Whatever turns you on, sir.
Cmdr. Sturgis Turner: [indicating his going-away gift to Loren] Go ahead, open it. It's called a mezuzah. It goes on the outside of your quarters.
Lt. Loren Singer: You're serious about this, Commander?
Cmdr. Sturgis Turner: [smiling] Wait until Chanukah.

Lt. Loren Singer: Petty Officer Tiner! You're friends with Commander Rabb and Colonel Mackenzie, aren't you?

P.O. Jason Tiner: [shocked] That's terrible.
Lt. Loren Singer: [cheerily] Yes, isn't it?
07x23 - In Country (1) Season 7 / Episode 23: - In Country (1)

Lt. Harriet Sims: Have you NO SHAME!
Lt. Loren Singer: I don't know what you're talking about.
Lt. Harriet Sims: Gleefully celebrating my friends' misfortunes while coveting their offices!
Lt. Loren Singer: I said nothing of the sort.
Lt. Harriet Sims: Oh, you wouldn't you little coward!
Lt. Loren Singer: I am not a coward!

Lt. Loren Singer: I believe the appropriate response is, "I walked into a door."
Adm. Albert Jethro 'A.J.' Chegwidden: Would you like to make a more formal response, Lieutenant?
Lt. Loren Singer: Yes, sir. I will most certainly respond but not in any way that would require the Admiral's attention, sir.

Lt. Loren Singer: [Talking about Lt Roberts] I bust my butt and he baby-sits his kid.
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Nothing wrong with being a family-man, Lieutenant.
Lt. Loren Singer: Or playing your family for all they're worth, sir.
Lt. Col. Sarah 'Mac' MacKenzie: Bud doesn't play his family, Lieutenant.
Lt. Loren Singer: [sighs in exasperation] Maybe I should get a dog.

Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr., Lt. Col. Sarah 'Mac' MacKenzie: [Mac and Rabb pause a second, then simultaneously] Pit-Bull!

Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: [about Singer's cross-examination of Harriet] What the hell were you doing in there?
Lt. Loren Singer: Discrediting the witness, sir.
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: You attack her testimony to put doubt in the members' mind, Lieutenant. You attack her, you look like a bully.
Lt. Loren Singer: They saw she wasn't objective.
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: They saw a lawyer attacking a woman who lost her baby.
Lt. Loren Singer: That was my point, sir.
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: You brought her to tears, Lieutenant. You made her sympathetic.
Lt. Loren Singer: The members knew what I was doing, sir.
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Two of the members are women who have children.
Lt. Loren Singer: She was a strong witness, sir. I decided it was a risk worth taking.
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Well that's not your decision to make, is it? Where'd you get this dream stuff from, anyway?
Lt. Loren Singer: Harriet told petty officer Tiner. He told me this morning.
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: I should have been informed.
Lt. Loren Singer: Would you have used it, sir?
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Not the way you did. You hurt us in there, Lieutenant.
Lt. Loren Singer: I thought it was our best shot, sir.
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Our best shot comes this afternoon when we present our case. I'll be conducting both the direct and the cross.
Lt. Loren Singer: Are you implying I'm a bad lawyer, sir?
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Just inexperienced, Lieutenant, and without wisdom.

Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Denied. That'll be all.

Lt. Cmdr. Alan Mattoni: No hard feelings, ma'am.
Lt. Loren Singer: Nothing personal, ma'am.
Cmdr. Caitlin 'Kate' Pike: Then let me *make* it personal. The difference between Admiral Hollenbeck and you is he didn't intend me harm. Therefore, he gets my forgiveness.

Cmdr. Caitlin 'Kate' Pike: YOU get my *contempt*!
05x20 - Drop Zone Season 5 / Episode 20: - Drop Zone

Lt. Loren Singer: May I say something, sir?
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Go ahead.
Lt. Loren Singer: I'm aggressive, and I'm an overachiever. I know that about myself, and I don't pretend otherwise. I realize I'm the brunt of snide comments and jokes among the office staff, but I can't change who I am. However, I'm not a thief nor a liar. Short of that, I'll use whatever means necessary to achieve my goal.
Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Which is?
Lt. Loren Singer: To be the first female Judge Advocate General. Sir.
