Captain Binghamton: J. W., I'll bet the right man could really go places with your outfit, huh?
Lt. Jason Whitworth: Well, I did. I went from office boy to President in less than a year.
Binghamton: That's incredible!
Whitworth: I know. I was so stunned when the Chairman of the Board told me, that all I could say was, "Thanks, Dad."
