- That'll do.

She belongs to the chief of the boat.

Good-luck token.

The men give her a little... pat

on their way to battle stations.


I'll get the milk, sir.

Ah, submarines. They ruined my liver.

Couldn't take one again.

Terrible thought. Makes me old.

Makes me antique.

- Do you like subs?

- I chose the service, sir.

Of course.

- Good record.

- Thank you, sir.

It's a fact, not a compliment,

so don't thank me!

I told you two years ago you were

hot stuff, that you'd have a sub one day.

- Remember?

- Yes, sir. Thank you, sir.

Well, you're going to, Jim.

But not this time out.

The Nerka is being assigned

to Commander Richardson.

He'll be your skipper for this patrol.

You see, Jim, she's going to Area 7.

Richardson is acquainted with the area.

We lost four subs there the last year.

All of 'em sunk by an Akikaze

off the Bungo Straits.

His sub was the first. The Navy Board

feels he deserves another chance.

That command was mine.

Don't they think I can handle her in 7?

Of course not.

Your ability isn't being questioned.

- Richardson's suggestion...

- Richardson's suggestion?

He presented a very strong case.

This whole thing

is suddenly very clear to me.

- That all, sir?

- That's all.

You won't mind if I keep this

out of mothballs, Captain?

There are other boats besides the Nerka.


Rich? Hey, be careful!

- What's the matter?

- Like me to fix some lemonade?

Sure, honey, you go ahead.

I'll be down by the time...

- Better make enough for three.

- Three?

- We have company arriving.

- I can't see anyone like this!

I don't think this is a social visit.

You'd better put some gin

in that lemonade.

Looking for me?

- Commander Richardson?

- That's right.

I'm Bledsoe. Jim Bledsoe.

A pleasure. Mind throwing me up
