#1 The batteries dead. Whatever juice was left we used up when we manouvered. #2 What about the diesels? #1 The star boards a wreck. We need to dry dock to fix it. The port side diesles the good news. One of the crowds had a wretnch not, didn’t know a piston head from his sister’s tittie. I think I can fix it.
#1 We’re going to shoot him out like garbage? #2 His body is going to save our lives.
(in the bunks)1. I told you, she was hotter than Dorothy Lamour but she was good, like the kind of girl who wants to take you to a country club. 2. Yeah, like you ever been inside a country club! 1. Like I’d even want to, alright? So, what I do is I use my secret weapon, I tell him about the S-26, does the trick right away. 3. You don’t want to be talkin about that while we’re underway. 4. Why, what happened with the S-26? 1. You don’t know? (picks up egg) She was running a test dive down off Norfolk, shaft seal failed. She sunk to 400 feet. Know how much water pressure there is that deep?(squeezes egg till it breaks. All guys jump) 3. Mazzola, you gonna be the first one eating powdered eggs off this cruise, keep it up, you hear? (tosses him a napkin)
1) Sir , permission to abandon ship ? 2) Not yet
1) Tank, you all right? 2)Trigger drowned. 1) Kid never gave up, did he.
1. Mr. Tyler, I see a mast on the horizon. 2. Shit! That’s a Nazi destroyer!
1. You’re a first-rate XO, Andy, a damn good submariner. I know the men like you. 2. I’d give my life for any one of them, sir. 1. I know you would, I’m not questioning your bravery, but the question is what about their lives? You and Mr. Emmett are good friends, you went to the Academy together. Would you be willing to sacrifice his life? Or how about some of the younger enlisted men? You know those guys look up to you like a big brother. Would you be willing to sacrifice their lives? You see, you hesitate, but as a captain, you can’t. You have to act, and if you’re wrong, you suffer the consequences. If you’re not prepared to make those decisions, then you got no business being a submarine captain.
Boy, don’t go droppin’ my eggs!
Cheif take us to 200 metres. We’re going to get under these things. Cheif, take us to 200 metres.
do you know what the water pressure is like at 200 meters
Don’t you dare say what you said to the boys back there, again, I don’t know. Those three words will kill a boy the same as a depth charge.
Equalizing valves-HOLY SHIT-what’s what-I..I CAN’T EQUALIZE THE TUBES!

How ya doin? You’re number ten, there you go. Having a good night? Uh huh, well, you ain’t gonna be happy when you lose this boat, lucky number eleven. Let’s go! It’s your first time looking at a black man, ain’t it?
I didn’t get my boat.
I want to thank you for that liberty pass. My girl thanks you to.
I’m telling you, she was hotter than Dorothy Lamour and better built.
If this mission goes south, I will blow that boat right out of the
If you can’t get us out of this, the danger is not that some of us may die, but that some of us may live. These men have seen and heard things that must not be revealed to the enemy, such as our radar capabilities or understanding German encryption. If we fall into German hands, we will be tortured without mercy, so either you succeed in sinking that ship or you must see to it that none of us survive to be captured.
Mr Coonan, our boys are submarine sailors. Not combat marines.
Mr Tyler, please don’t tell the other guys I’m half German. They’ll hate me.
Mr. Hirsch, step away from that bulkhead. The shockwave from one of
these explosions could snap your spine.
Now you get in there and do your duty, Salior!
Oh, she’ll go all the way to the bottom if we don’t stop her. Normally we try not to get below 150 feet. Any deeper the leaks overwhelm the pumps. These S boats are antiques. Older than most of the crew.
Pornography and dirty letters stinking of french perfume, a bag of pure shit I should throw it overboard.
Swing you bastard, swing.

We commend his soul to God…and commit his body to the deep.

What’s the matter, ain’t you ever seen a black man before? Get used to it!
What’s the matter, ain’t you ever seen a black man before? Get used to it.
Yeah I heard about what happened to you. That’s one of the advantages of being seen and not being seen. You’ll be surprised some of the things us mess stewards hear.
