Naval activity! I've not heard anything about this. But then of course I never was a sailor.
Mr. Ambassador, you've got nearly a hundred naval vessels operating in the North atlantic right now. You're aircraft has dropped enough sona bouy's so that a man could walk from Greenland to Iceland to Scottland without gettin his feet wet. So shall we dispense with the bull?
But the sea has many....
And what looks like an exercise, could be a prelude to war! How can we tell the difference? Prudence demands that we deploy our ships to observe yours. It would do well for your government to consider that. Having your ships and ours. Your aircraft and ours, in such proximity, is inherently dangerous! Wars have begun that way Mr. embassador.
If I have to explain this one, you shouldn't consider yourself a film buff. This is perhaps one of the greatest Naval war films of all time. Up there with Das Boot. Mr. Roberts. Tora Tora Tora. So many others I can't recall them all. I've been longing for a great Naval War film in such a long time. And don't mention Crimson Tide to me please. That was a great Gene Hackman Denzel Washington vehicle. But what it was not was a great Naval War film. It was a highly charged political drama set in the location of a Naval War film. That's of course my opinion.
But as a former U.S. Naval service member I can testify to the spoken evidence that the majority of my shipmates agree with me.
Top Gun was a adrenaline fueled recruitment tool. Just like Navy Seals. Pearl Harbor was a special Effects vehicle.
I'm not sure why I went into all that. I guess I'm just venting my frustration that there is not a recent Great Naval War Film for me to quote one liners from. So I've got to keep using my old faithful. Although, I could invoke a Down Periscope line or two. Down Periscope is not a serious Naval Film, but it is an excellent Naval Comedy. Much in league with Mr. Roberts.
1a, cold. 1b.............zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzztttttttttttt! HOT! That boy's absorbed a lot of voltage.
Hey, where'd you get that parrot? Uh, it just flew in.
Don't let it fly away, it's dinner!
