What happens when it

catches up with us?

When you're in command of $55

million worth of submarine,

you don't gamble.

Range, 3-0-0.

Stand by to take her deep.

Aye, aye, sir.

Range, 2-0-0.

Take her deep.

Full dive on the bow plane, please.

Full dive on the bow plane, sir.

10 degrees down bubble..

10 degrees down bubble.

All planes are at full

dive, sir. Very well.

Resume course.

Steer 3-3-0.

3-3-0, sir.

OFFICER:
It's too close

to get a range now, sir.

Conning Tower to Maneuvering. All stop.

We're getting a radiation warning

signal. Where's it coming from?

GRIFF:
Not from our reactor, sir.

It must be. Recheck your reactor.

Reactor shield okay. Engines

okay. Nothing hot in here, sir.

What happened to us?

I don't know.

All you men okay?

Okay, but let's find out

where that radiation is

coming from before we all fry.

It's coming from outside the ship. Look!

I don't figure it.

I can't either, sir.

Haven't got time to try now.

Our sonar system's out. Fix it.

Maneuvering.

Let's pull out of here!

All ahead full!

All ahead full, sir!

But we're standing still!

That's not

the engine's fault, sir.

Keep pouring it on.

You okay, Griff?

Okay here, sir.

Surface!

(ALARM BLARING)

CREWMAN:
Pull main ballast!

Still no luck, Captain.

We're fouled tight.

Hand me that thing.

I want two Aqua-Lung

volunteers to blast the sluice.

Get in your gear and stand by the

escape hatch. Take a demolition charge.

I'll take over.

Aye, aye, Captain.

(CRASHING)

Anybody hurt?

Mac took an awful crack

in the head here, Captain.

Come on, Mac.

How do you feel, Mac?

All right. What's a

fractured skull, anyway?

(GEIGER COUNTER TICKING)

Is that damn thing still going?

Not afraid of a little

radiation, are you, Mac?

I've heard it makes you so
