- Five, six, seven, eight!

You girls ready?


Hey, could use

a little help over here!

No, no, you go ahead

and make a fool of yourself.

I'm fine right here.

Your friend is teaching

the dance society girls

the latest dance craze

from New York.


Not bad, huh?



He's a gas.




All right,

I want to close on the ranks

of a damn Rolls-Royce,

all right?

She's the crown jewel

of the Navy!

Good job.

Good job.

Okay, we're gonna get this boat

looking brand-spanking new!

Let them Japs know

they didn't hurt nobody!

They didn't do

nothing to us, okay?

Good job, sailors!

No holes in my shoes,

and no holes in my boat!

Hey, it's going to take two

surgeons six hours

to get my size-10 boot

out of your ass

if you don't

get a move on, FNG.

Means "friggin' new guy."

- Sir.

- Carry on.

Congratulations, McWhorter.

I heard the news.

- A boy right?

- Can't wait to meet him.

He's nine pounds and 13 ounces

of romping-stomping dynamite.

And the wife's fine, too.


How we doing here?

The Japs put a pretty

big hole in the ship,

but the big guns

are fine, sir.

Sir? Lieutenant Standish

reporting for duty again, sir.

Ready to turn these sailors

into a lean,

mean fighting machine.

And may I say, my father,

Admiral Percy Standish,

- sends his regards.


All hands stand by.

All hands, stand by.

Looks like you got

the damage from that Zero

- repaired pretty quickly.

- Yes, sir.

We finished it today.

The fact that you lost

only nine men

is a solid testament

to you and your crew.

Nine too many.

Ready to get

out there again, Captain?


I have nine new officers

and 250 new enlisted men,
