Peter "Weps" Ince 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!

  • Peter "Weps" Ince: [answers the private phone] Weps.

    Hunter: Weps. This is Hunter. Listen to me.

    Peter "Weps" Ince: Where are you?

    Hunter: Don't worry about where I am. Listen, we have other ships that can handle this, you can't be influenced by the captain or anybody else, you have to make up your own mind.

    Peter "Weps" Ince: [hears a beep] Con, Weapons. Missles will be ready to launch in 4 minutes.

    Hunter: Listen Weps, listen Weps, don't do this. Don't do this Weps, once we launch, they cannot come back. They cannot come back Weps, and you know the repercussions if we're wrong, goddamnit. Weps, if we fire now, we'll be firing when we're blind and crippled, you understand that?

    Peter "Weps" Ince: Where the fuck are you?

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