Lt. Bobby Dougherty Quotes in Crimson Tide (1995)


Lt. Bobby Dougherty Quotes:

  • Peter "Weps" Ince: Okay. What's going on?

    Zimmer: We're not going to let this go down with the X-O and Helm.

    Peter "Weps" Ince: We're not?

    Zimmer: No. We're not?

    Lt. Bobby Dougherty: We've been following the captain for years, and now this asshole Hunter shows up, and we're supposed to follow him because he said so?

    Peter "Weps" Ince: You're not supposed to, you were ordered to. That's what this is about, proper orders.

    Lt. Bobby Dougherty: Proper Orders? He has proper orders, he won't act on them

    Peter "Weps" Ince: He's in command now! If they order him to launch, we'll launch, and we'll blow 'em all to hell. But, I rather go down myself then get this one wrong.

    Lt. Darik Westergard: Weps. Our procedures are clear. In the absence of a contravening order and in a situation like this, we follow the orders in hand.

    Zimmer: That's right. You know how many checks that we have to go through to make sure that a message is authentic? The X-O agreed to those orders, now he just wants to throw them away they don't count?

    Lt. Bobby Dougherty: He's lost his nerve.

    Peter "Weps" Ince: Bullshit! I know this guy Bobby!

    Lt. Darik Westergard: Weps. We're prepared for launch. How can we just sit here and do nothing when they're prepared to launch at us?

    Peter "Weps" Ince: Well, we don't know that for sure that's the whole point. That is why he needs time to confirm the message.

    Zimmer: That's the whole fuckin' point is that we don't got time! Radchenko is fueling his birds and why do you think he's doing that? Huh? Why? Because you don't put on a condom until you're gonna fuck!

  • Lt. Bobby Dougherty: [seeing a sailor coming on the bus] How are you doing?

    Lt. Bobby Dougherty: [to Weps] Is he gonna fit in the sub?

    Peter "Weps" Ince: [looking at the sailor's heavy set body] Doubtful.

    Lt. Bobby Dougherty: Who played the submarine Commander in Enemy Below with Robert Mitchum? Was it Curt Jurgens or Hardy Kruger?

    Sailor with Oba: [not knowing what Dougherty is talking about] Um, Sir...

    Lt. Bobby Dougherty: Wrong answer! Drop down and give me 20, now! Move! Move!

    [the sailor is on the floor doing push-ups]

    Peter "Weps" Ince: Who was it?
