A Few Good Men script
Synopsis: Lt. Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) is a military lawyer defending two U.S. Marines charged with killing a fellow Marine at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba. Although Kaffee is known for seeking plea bargains, a fellow lawyer, Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore), convinces him that the accused marines were most likely carrying out an order from a commanding officer. Kaffee takes a risk by calling Col. Nathan R. Jessep (Jack Nicholson) to the stand in an effort to uncover the conspiracy.

We follow JO, still muttering, as she walks into the brick

building which bears the seal of the

INT. WEST'S OFFICE - DAY

As JO enters. CAPTAIN WEST and two other officers, GIBBS

and LAWRENCE, sit around a conference table.

JO:

Thank you, sir.

GIBBS:

Captain West, this is Lt. Commander

Galloway. Jo, you know Mike Lawrence.

JO:

Yes sir.

(to WEST)

Captain, I appreciate your seeing me

on such short notice.

WEST:

I understand there was some trouble

over the weekend down in Cuba.

Yes sir... This past Friday evening.

Two marines, Corporal Harold Dawson

and Private Louden Downey, entered

the barracks room of a PFC William

Santiago and assaulted him. Santiago

died at the base hospital

Santiago from naming them in a

fenceline shooting incident. They're
