Crimson Tide
Movie Quote Quiz

Capt. Ramsey: Short of the outbreak of World War Three, the ship sinking... being attacked by a giant octopus, I'd like to be undisturbed for the next thirty minutes.
Hunter: I'll see to it sir.

Peter "Weps" Ince: You're missin' your daughter's levitation.

Capt. Ramsey: Rickover gave me my command, a checklist, a target, and a button to push. All I had to know was how to push it, and they'd tell me when. They seem to want you know why.
Hunter: I would hope they'd want us all to know why, sir.

Zimmer: You don't put on a condom unless you're gonna fuck.

Hunter: Look, it wasn't a mutiny, I did everything by the book.
Chief of the Boat: It's not about the book. If the Russians are gonna launch and we sit here and do nothing... who's gonna stop 'em? Half of me's glad the Captain came back.

Capt. Ramsey: They're fueling their missiles, we don't have time to fuck around.

Capt. Ramsey: I expect and demand your very best. Anything less, you should have joined the Air Force.

Capt. Ramsey: This is the captain. Set condition 1SQ for strategic missile launch. Spin up missiles one through five, and 20 through 24. The release of nuclear weapons has been authorized. This is not a drill.

Hunter: Chief of the Boat.
Chief of the Boat: Sir?
Hunter: Thank you, COB.
Chief of the Boat: Thank you? Fuck you! Get it straight Mr Hunter, I'm not on your side. Now you could be wrong! But wrong or right, the Captain can't just replace you at will. That was completely improper! And that's why I did what I did. By the book.
Hunter: I thank you anyway.

Zimmer: This is a mutiny, Peter. There's only two sides to a mutiny.

Capt. Ramsey: All I ask is that you keep up with me. If you can't, then that strange sensation you'll be feeling in the seat of your pants will be my boot in your ass.

Hunter: In my humble opinion, in the nuclear world, the true enemy is war itself.

Hunter: Captain? I just wanted to say thank you.
Capt. Ramsey: You were right, and I was wrong! About the horses, the Lippizaners. They are from Spain, not Portugal.
Hunter: Yes, sir.

Hunter: Get the radio fixed Vossler. I could've built one by now.
