Sean: As  soldiers in my army, you must be able to move quickly on both land and sea!

Sean: Jump into the pond and swim across as fast as you can so I can assess your aquatic skills!

Alvin: How does getting wet advance my plans to become an astronaut?

Alvin: Why should a future spaceman like me require aquatic skills?

Alvin: All I want to do is learn astrophysics and rocket science!

Alvin: I mean seriously.  Have you ever seen a photo of Einstein swimming?

Alvin: In order to preserve my intellectual dignity, I refuse to comply with your military demands!

Sean: JUMP!

Sean: Why did I get stuck with such a ‘high-maintenance’ soldier?

Sean: He would’ve been a nightmare to work with on “D-Day”!
