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. Nicholas Holden: Yes, Sir. Destroyer duty.

    Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: How did you find time for it?

    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!
