No mistakes in the Tango, not like life. It's simple, that's what makes the Tango so great. If you make a mistake, get all tangled up,just Tango on.
You're not bad, you're just in pain.
When the shit hits the fan, some guys run and some guys stay.
Now I've come to the crossroad in my life.I always knew what the right path was without exception. I knew, but I never took it.you know why.It's was too damn hard.
There is nothing like the sight of an amputated spirit.There is no prothesis for that.
Did you ever have the feeling that you wanted to go,and still you had the feeling that you wanted to stay?
no mistakes in the tango, not like life.
all my life i stood up to everyone and everything because if made me feel important. you do it cause you mean it.
you're not bad, you're just in pain.

if you're tangled up, just tango on.

This is such a crock of shit !
Please watch your language, Mr. Slade.
You are in the Baird school,not a barracks.
Mr. Simms, l will give you one final opportunity to speak up.
''Boys, inform on your classmates, save your hide;
anything short of that,we're gonna burn you at the stake'' ?
when the shit hits the fan,some guys run…
Here's Charlie facin' the fire,and there's George hidin' in big daddy's pocket.
And what are you doin' ?
You're buildin' a rat ship here,
a vessel for seagoin' snitches.
And if you think you're preparin' these minnows for manhood,
because l say you are killin' the very spirit this institution proclaims it instills.
l mean, the only class in this act is sittin' next to me.
l'm here to tell you this boy's soul is intact.
lt's non-negotiable.You know how l know ?
Someone here, and l'm not gonna say who,offered to buy it.
l'd show you,but l'm too old,l'm too tired,too fuckin' blind.
lf l were the man l was five years ago, l'd take a flamethrower to this place !
Out of order ? Who the hell you think you're talkin' to ?
l've been around,you know ?
And l have seen Boys like these,younger than these,
their arms torn out,their legs ripped off.
But there is nothin'like the sight of an amputated spirit.
There is no prosthetic for that.
You think you're merely sendin' this splendid foot soldier back home to Oregon with his tail between his legs,
but l say you are executin' his soul !
As l came in here,l heard those words:''cradle of leadership.''
Well, when the bough breaks,the cradle will fall,
Makers of men,creators of leaders.
Be careful what kind of leaders you're producin' here.
l don't know if Charlie's silence here today is right or wrong;
l'm not a judge or jury.
But l can tell you this:
he won't sell anybody out to buy his future !
And that, my friends,is called integrity.
Now that's the stuff leaders should be made of.
Now l have come to the crossroads in my life.
l always knew what the right path was.
lt's the right path.
lt's a path made of principle that leads to character.
Let him continue on his journey.
You hold this boy's future in your hands, Committee.
lt's a valuable future,
lt's gonna make you proud one day, l promise you.
