Zimmer Quotes in Crimson Tide (1995)
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!
Zimmer: You don't put on a condom unless you're gonna fuck!
Zimmer: This is a mutiny, Peter. There's only two sides to a mutiny.
Hunter: [over the intercom] Radio, X-O. Mr. Zimmer, get those communication systems back online now.
Zimmer: [over the intercom] We're working on it sir.
Zimmer: Aye, aye, Captain.
Vossler: Are we ready?
Zimmer: Yeah, we're ready. Go.
[sparks fly when Vossler touches the circuit board with his soldering iron]
Vossler: Oh fuck.
Zimmer: The system crashed, the radio buoy got severed, what the fuck does he want us to do?
Vossler: Shit electrons?
Zimmer: Hey, we need this radio repaired. Not smart-ass remarks.
Zimmer: I think you broke my arm.
Scott: [slams his arm against the side of a dumpster] Now it's broken.
Zimmer: I love ya Babe, but the season's over.
