There he is. Hey, Andy! Where you been?
It's an all-hands function.
Come here. I want you to meet Joanie.
Joanie, this is Andy Tyler.
Hello. My best friend.
We went to Annapolis together.
Nice to meet you. Hey,
I got you one of Larson's stogies.
- To our navy's next sub skipper.
- Thank you.
Lieutenant! Gonna hoist up a few beers
with the enlisted boys later?
You got it, Griggs. All right.
Mr. Tyler! Mr. Tyler!
My mom is here visiting.
Can I bring her over to meet you?
Sure thing, Trigger.
That's the lieutenant I was talking about.
Hello there, Prudence, Louise. Mrs. Dahlgren, Captain.
Where's your date, Andy?
It's not like you to arrive stag.
I'm afraid I couldn't get one on such short notice, ma'am.
Captain, could I have a word with you?
Certainly. Darling, will you excuse us? Okay.
Be right back.
I didn't get my boat.
With all due respect, sir,
there's only one way that could've happened,
and that's if you withheld your recommendation.
I just don't think you're ready.
What do you mean, I'm not ready?
Sir, I have worked my tail off on the S-33.
I'm qualified in every area and then some.
No executive officer has higher marks than I do. Andy!
You're just not ready to take on a command of your own.
Now I've made my decision. It's done.
Mr. Tyler. How you doing, sir?
Having a good time? Hell, yeah, Chief.
How about you?
I'm looking forward to getting underway.
I'm a sea dog. Need some salt, sir.
He torpedoed me, Chief.
Nine months aboard the S-33,
doing the best job I know how.
Doing everything once and then doing it again,
just to make sure I didn't miss anything the first time.
You'll get your chance, sir.
There's other commands in the navy.
Didn't warn me.
Ain't my place, sir.
Club's secured! Time to go!
Let's go. Get out. Everyone out.
Come on, let's go.
What's the meaning of this, Sergeant?
- You the senior man? That's right.
- I'm the X.O. Of the S-33.
These men have a 48-hour liberty pass.
No, sir, not no more.
What the hell are those yardbirds doing to my boat?
Looks like a goddamn Nazi submarine.
Hey, Andy. This is a fine navy day.
They wouldn't give me five minutes to consummate my marriage.
- What's going on here?
- Hell if I know. Put your cover on.
- Mr. Tyler, call the crew to quarters.
- Aye, Captain.
Quarters! Everybody fall in! Let's get in formation now!
Let's go! Now! Formation!
all crew members present and accounted for, sir!
Very well. At ease.
I'm sorry your liberty's been cut short,
but our schedule's changed.
We have two hours to get stowed for sea
and set the maneuvering watch.
have your torpedo men load the tubes with their four best fish.
Mr. Emmett, warm up the diesels and line up a battery charge.
Mr. Tyler, we have dry stores,
ordnance and perishables to get belowdecks.
Gentlemen, it's our turn. That's all.
Crew dismissed! You heard the man! Stores load!
You got six seconds to get on your boondockers
and dungarees and turn to!
Mr. Tyler, is this for real, or is it a drill?
"It's our turn"... what does that mean?
I thought we had a two-day liberty pass.
What's going on?
I don't know, but I'm gonna find out.
Get your jobs done now.
could you fill me in on what's going on, sir?
We're obviously not going to the Caribbean Station.
No, we're not. We're going on a special op.
You'll be briefed with Mr. Emmett and Mr. Larson once we get underway.
Aye, sir. Andy, listen.
I'm gonna need the very best from you on this run,
regardless of any differences you may have with me.
Are we clear on that?
- Yes, sir. - Good.
Now go find Radioman Wentz and quietly escort him to the materiel office.
Mr. Tyler. How are you, son?
I'm fine, Admiral Duke. What brings you up here?
He does. That's Lieutenant Hirsch.
