Debbie Callahan

Character

Sgt. Debbie Callahan (played by Leslie Easterbrook) is best known for her aggressive no-nonsense attitude. Unlike Harris, she's not a "mean" instructor who antagonizes the cadets.

In her role as a teacher to the cadets, she usually gets into situations where after explaining or demonstrating the lesson, she is usually flanked by the male cadets volunteering to be her next test-subject. For example, in the fourth movie, she teaches a lesson about saving drowning victims, in which she plays the drowning victim: After she dives in the pool, swims to the middle, and surfaces, she asks, "Now, who is going to save me?" Immediately, all the male cadets jump into the pool and swim after her. Another example is in the first movie, where she demonstrates self-defense: Leslie Barbara is her test subject, whom she swiftly takes down and sits on. When she asks for volunteers, all the male cadets promptly and eagerly volunteer.
