Helicopter Pilot: Fuel status says we turn back now.
Jack Ryan: Wait a minute. Fuel status? You have a reserve, don't you?
Helicopter Pilot: Yes, sir. I've got a 10 minute reserve... but I'm not allowed to invade that except in time of war.
Jack Ryan: Listen, mister, if you don't get me on board that goddamn submarine, that just might be what you'll have! You got me? Now you have 10 more minutes' worth of fuel, we stay here 10 more minutes!

Y'know, I seen me a mermaid once. I even seen me a shark eat an octopus. But I ain't never seen no phantom Russian submarine.

Captain Davenport: What's he going to do, sail into New York, pop the hatch, and say "Here I am"?
Jack Ryan: It might be just that simple, yes.

Captain Ramius: Hey, Ryan, be careful what you shoot at. Most things in here don't react too well to bullets.
Jack Ryan: Right.
[Moves closer to enemy, who fires several shots ]
Jack Ryan: I have to be careful what I shoot at?

[to himself] "Ryan, some things in here don't react well to bullets." Yeah, like me. I don't react well to bullets.

John Smith: It was just a drunken Vegas thing.
Jane Smith: Oh, that's better. That's *much* better.

Jane Smith: What's her name and social security number?
John Smith: No, you're not gonna kill her.
