Some of the things they do defy belief. Their training program is simplicity itself. You just stick a cattle prod up their ass and you can get a horse to deal cards ... simple matter of voltage.

Capt. Ramsey

Peter "Weps" Ince: Con, Weapons. Missiles will be ready to launch in 4 minutes.
Hunter: Listen Weps, listen Weps, don't do this. Don't do this Weps, once we launch, they can not come back, they can not come back Weps, and you know the repercussions if we're wrong, goddamit. Weps, if we fire now, we'll be firing when we're blind and crippled, you understand that?
Peter "Weps" Ince: Where the fuck are you?
Hunter: Do not remove the firing trigger! Do not open that safe Weps. We're counting you, it is up to YOU Weps. It is up to you. [Hangs up]
Peter "Weps" Ince: [to a petty officer] Mind your fucking panel!

Zack Mazursky: I would NEVER rat you guys out.
Frankie Ballenbacher: Hey, we know that man.

Believe it or not, I do try to do some good in the community.

Alonzo Harris

Wipe that smile off your face, you're a dead giveaway.

Julie Beckley

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

Hunter

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!

Capt. Ramsey

Zack Mazursky: Marco
Julie Beckley: Polo
Zack Mazursky: Marco
Julie Beckley: [breathily] Polo
[they kiss]

I don't trust air I can't see.

Capt. Ramsey

Peter "Weps" Ince: Okay. What's gong on?
Zimmer: We're not going to let this go down with the Ex-O and Helm.
Peter "Weps" Ince: We're not?
Zimmer: No. We're not?
Lt. Bobby Dougherty: We've been following the captain for years, and now this asshole Hunter shows up, and we're supposed to follow him because he said so?
Peter "Weps" Ince: You're not supposed to, you were ordered to. That's what this is about, proper orders.
Lt. Bobby Dougherty: Proper Orders? He has proper orders, he wo'nt act on them
Peter "Weps" Ince: He's in command now! If they order him to launch, we'll launch, and we'll blow'em all to hell. But, I rather go down myself then get this one wrong.

Angela Holden: So you're like... ransom.
Julie Beckley: That's hot.
Zack Mazursky: It's ok. Its like another story to tell my grandchildren
Julie Beckley: Stolen boy.

Hunter: Captain, National Military Command Center knows what sector we're in. They have satellites looking down on us to see if our birds are aloft and if they're NOT, then they give our orders to somebody else. That's why we maintain more than one sub, it's what they call redundancy!
Capt. Ramsey: I know about redundancy, Mr. Hunter.
Hunter: All I'm saying... all I'm saying Captain, is that we have backup. Now it's our duty, not to launch until we can confirm.
Capt. Ramsey: You're presuming we have other submarines out there, ready to launch. Well as Captain, I must assume our submarines could've been taken out by other Akulas. We can play these games all night, Mr. Hunter, but, uh, I don't have the luxury of your presumptions.
