Crimson Tide quotes

Capt. Ramsey: Yeah, horses're fascinating animals. Dumb as fenceposts but very intuitive. In that way they're not too different from high school girls: they may not have a brain in their head but they do know all the boys want to fu** 'em.

Capt. Ramsey: Speaking of horses did you ever see those Lipizzaner stallions.
Hunter: What?
Capt. Ramsey: From Portugal. The Lipizzaner stallions. The most highly trained horses in the world. They're all white?
Hunter: Yes, sir.
Capt. Ramsey: "Yes, sir" you're aware they're all white or "Yes, sir" you've seen them?
Hunter: Yes, sir I've seen them. Yes, sir I was aware that they're are all white. They are not from Portugal; they're from Spain and at birth, they're not white; they're black. Sir.
Capt. Ramsey: I didn't know that. But they are from Portugal. (Chuckling)
Capt. Ramsey: Some of the things they do, uh, defy belief. Their training program is simplicity itself. You just stick a cattle prod up their as* and you can get a horse to deal cards. (Chuckles)
Capt. Ramsey: Simple matter of voltage.

Capt. Ramsey: I have the con. (to hunter)
Capt. Ramsey: Gimme the missile key. (Hunter does nothing and Ramsey punches Hunter in the face)
Capt. Ramsey: (sternly) Gimme the missile key Mr. Hunter. (Hunter takes the keys out and puts it around his neck and Ramsey punches Hunter in the face again)
Capt. Ramsey: (shouting) I am the commander of this fu****' ship! Gimme the go***** key!

Capt. Ramsey: At the Naval War College it was metallurgy and nulear reactors, not 19th-century philosophy. (Stifled laugh)
Capt. Ramsey: "War is a continuation of politics by other means." Von Clausewitz.
Hunter: I think, sir, that what he was actually trying to say was a little more...
Capt. Ramsey: Complicated? (Men Laughing)
Hunter: Yes the purpose of war is to serve a political end but hte true nature of war is to serve itself.
Capt. Ramsey: (laughing) I'm very impressed. In other words, the sailor most likely to win the war is the one most willing to part company with the politicians and ignore everything except the destruction of the enemy. You'd agree with that.
Hunter: I'd agree that, um, that's what Clausewitz was trying to say.
Capt. Ramsey: But you wouldn't agree with it?
Hunter: No, sir, I do not. No, I just think that in the nuclear world the true enemy can't be destroyed.
Capt. Ramsey: (chuckling, tapping glass) Attention on deck. Von Clausewitz will now tell us exactly who the real enemy is. (laughing)
Capt. Ramsey: Von? (Men Laughing)
Hunter: In my humble opinion, in the nuclear world, the true enemy is war itself

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

Capt. Ramsey: Mr. COB!
Chief of the Boat: Yes, sir?
Capt. Ramsey: You're aware of the name of this ship, aren't you Mr. COB?
Chief of the Boat: Very aware, sir!
Capt. Ramsey: It bears a proud name, doesn't it, Mr. COB?
Chief of the Boat: Very proud, sir!
Capt. Ramsey: It represents fine people.
Chief of the Boat: Very fine people, sir!
Capt. Ramsey: Who live in a fine, outstanding state.
Chief of the Boat: Outstanding, sir!
Capt. Ramsey: In the greatest country in the entire world.
Chief of the Boat: In the entire world, sir!
Capt. Ramsey: And what is that name, Mr. COB?
Chief of the Boat: Alabama, sir!
Capt. Ramsey: And what do we say?
Capt. Ramsey: Go Bama!
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.

Capt. Ramsey: Mr Ince, Mr Ince, unlock the tactical firing trigger.
Peter "Weps" Ince: Sir, it is my duty to...
Capt. Ramsey: Son, do'nt talk to me about duty! Open the fu***** safe!
Peter "Weps" Ince: I ca'nt do that, sir. (Ramsey draws a gun and places it to the back of Weps's head)
Capt. Ramsey: I'm gonna count to 3, then I'm gonna blow your fu***** head off! One... two... (no response)
Capt. Ramsey:**! It does me no good to kill you. You're the only one who knows the combination! (sees Weps's assistant)
Capt. Ramsey: But petty officer Hilaire doesn't know the combination. Millions of lives are at stake here Peter don't make a dumb decision. (he grabs the assistant and puts the gun between his eyes)
Capt. Ramsey: One... two...
Peter "Weps" Ince: SIR! (Weps unlocks the safe)
