Washington probably thought

you needed a woman's touch around here.

[CHUCKLES] Research project, isn't it?

- That's right.

The reaction of crewmen under

conditions of lengthy confinement?

Yes, Admiral, and I appreciate

the honor of being the only woman aboard.

- Ah, but you're not. We have another one.

- Oh?

You'll meet her.

Shall we see the rest of the ship?

Well, I did think that was

the purpose of our visit.

- Doctor.

- Congressman.

The control room the brain of the sub.

Over here, we have our chauffeurs.

It takes two to run this toy

helmsman and planesman.

Now, on a submarine,

it's always Christmas.

That's what I've been telling Congress.

Wrong deduction, sir.

That's our Christmas tree.

Tells us when we can dive.

Now, if we go down before

all those lights are green...

we start bailing.

Over here...

we have our ballast control.

- How does it work?

- Like an elevator system, doctor.

Takes us up and lets us down.

Now, on this side...

that is radar.

This is sonar. Sonar keeps us from

running into anything under the water.

- Radar does the same thing on the surface.


Try this one, Congressman.

Two "S"s in "progress."

Now if you'll come down here, doctor.

This is our missile tracking tape.

If we have to shoot, at least

we like to know where the missile's going.

And if we do shoot,

over there are the buttons.

The trick is to know which one.

Suppose the other fella shoots first?

In that event, sir, that's the way out.

This way, doctor, please.

And watch your step here.

The radio shack. Lee?

- Excuse me. This way, please.

- Sparks?

Make that Washington call

in exactly 11 minutes.

Aye, aye, sir.

Not even Jules Verne

dreamed of anything like this.

- The world's only undersea aquarium.
