Lowly, Lowly Cook

A favorite bit of dialogue from the movie Under Siege (written by J. F. Lawton):

Jordan Tate: So who are you? Are you, you, like, some special forces guy or something?
Casey Ryback: Nah. I'm just a cook.
Jordan Tate: A cook?
Casey Ryback: [Whispering] Just a lowly, lowly cook.
Jordan Tate: Oh, my God, we're gonna die.

... but of course, the "lowly, lowly cook"—played by Steven Seagal—is in fact rather special ...
