just before Vasquez and Gorman blow themselves up in the air vent
this line always puzzled me...
Vasquez: You always were an asshole, Gorman!
Vasquez's line is something you'd say to someone you've known for a long time, but Gorman is referred to as "the new lieutenant" in the mess hall scene.
Hicks: Looks like the new lieutenant's too good to eat with the rest of us grunts.
Frost: Boy's definitely got a corncob up his ass.
Later he's shown to have little experience.
Ripley: How many drops is this for you, Lieutenant?
Gorman: Thirty eight... simulated.
Vasquez: How many combat drops?
Gorman: Uh, two. Including this one.
Hudson: Oh, man...
Did Vasquez and Gorman already know each other? Did she hate him for more than
getting Drake and most of the squad killed?
Deleted scenes, director's commentary, novelizations, speculation... go at it.
