Lt. Nicholas Holden Quotes:
Lt. Nicholas Holden: Let me go shopping, sir, and see what's left at the market.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: You, Mr. Holden? You'd ruin your manicure.
Lt. Nicholas Holden: Don't let the manicure fool you, sir. I grew up in a neighborhood called 'Noah's Ark'; If you didn't travel in pairs, you just didn't travel.
Lt. Nicholas Holden: [Seeing Lt. Crandell and Sherman come out of the shower together] Good morning, that's a clever shower schedule you've worked out. Conserves water too.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Look, Lt. Crandell was having trouble with the shower head.
Lt. Nicholas Holden: It's your boat, sir.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: I don't want to bore you with the problems of command, Mr. Holden, because I doubt you'll ever have one. It's inconsistent with that philosophy of yours - every man for himself.
Lt. Nicholas Holden: Dog eat dog.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Exactly. The unfortunate thing about command, though, Mr. Holden, is that the responsibilities outweigh the privileges. Now if it was just myself I was concerned with, I'd tell you what to do with that list. But my responsibility is this boat, and to get her out of here I'd even make a pact with the devil.
Lt. Nicholas Holden: That's where I come in.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: That's right.
[finding water all over the floor]
Lt. Nicholas Holden: Excuse me, sir, is this normal, or should I be nervous again?
Lt. Nicholas Holden: When I was a kid, I was the victim of the most vicious propaganda. People told me that money wasn't everything and I believed it. Then I found out that the people that were telling me that money wasn't everything were the people who had a lot of money. Now there are two ways you can get money. You can steal it, or you can marry it.
Lt. Nicholas Holden: The scuttlebutt is that we're going to try to submerge at daybreak, and I figured if you've got to go, you might as well go big.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Mr. Holden, it's past daybreak, and we are submerged.
Lt. Nicholas Holden: We are?
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: We are.
Lt. Nicholas Holden: You mean, we're under?
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Yes.
Lt. Nicholas Holden: Well, it isn't a permanent situation, er... What I'm trying to say is, I mean, we can come up if we like to.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Well, I like to think we can, but then, I'm an incurable optimist.
Lt. Nicholas Holden: What happens, sir, if we, er... What happens if we can't...?
[he motions upward]
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Oh, well, if we can't, er...
[he motions upward]
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: , then, we, er...
[he motions downward]
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Have you ever been to sea?
Lt. Nicholas Holden: Yes, Sir. Destroyer duty.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: How did you find time for it?
Lt. Nicholas Holden: It was a mistake, Sir. About a week after I left Honolulu, they got it straightened out.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Who? The Admiral or the Admiral's wife? She must be awfully upset with you stranded out here. That will probably cost her the rumba championship this year!
Filipino farmer: [seeing Holden's shoes] Oh! Zappatos!
Lt. Nicholas Holden: Oh no! Not my zappatos.
[Hunkle has revealed the picture of Gertie tattoed on his chest]
Lt. Nicholas Holden: [pointing to Gertie] They ought to hang you in the Louvre!
