Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964–1968): Season 1, Episode 11 - The Magnus Beam - full transcript

Seaview is called on to investigate the mysterious crashes of several U-2 spy planes. They discover the cause is a magnetic beam of immense power. Then they discover that the beam is ...

[Man] GENERAL?

PLANE APPROACHING, SIR. ALTITUDE
34,000 FEET; RANGE, 40 MILES.

EVERY DAY AT THIS
TIME, A U-2 SPY PLANE.

I WONDER WHAT
THEY'RE LOOKING FOR.

NOT, I AM SURE, WHAT
THEY'RE GOING TO GET. [Laughs]

MAJOR AMADI, DO THE HONORS.

OSCILLATOR VERTICAL.

[Switches Clicking]

WIDEN BEAM.

AND ACTIVATE.

[Man] ACTIVATED AND READY, SIR.



SWITCH ON.

ALTITUDE 34,000
FEET; RANGE, 30 MILES.

GENTLEMEN, TODAY WE FACE A
MOMENT OF HISTORIC IMPORTANCE.

WITH THIS FINAL DEMONSTRATION
OF THE POWER OF MY NEW WEAPON,

I'LL BE READY TO ACT.

OUR COUNTRY WILL COMMAND THE RED SEA
AND THE APPROACHES TO THE SUEZ CANAL.

IN A FEW SHORT WEEKS, OUR
COUNTRY WILL HAVE EMERGED...

AS THE GREATEST POWER
IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

AND WILL HAVE
STARTED WORLD WAR III.

WITHOUT YOU, GENERAL GAMAL,
THIS PLAN WILL FAIL... AND IT MUST FAIL.

YOUR GUNS ARE
USELESS, GENTLEMEN.

YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY A
HIGHLY POTENT MAGNETIZED FIELD...

IN WHICH NO MACHINERY
BASED ON STEEL WILL MOVE.

[Grunting] OH!



[Gunshots]

TAKE HIM AWAY!

RANGE, NINE MILES.

ALTITUDE, 30,000; RANGE, 0.

TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND.

TWENTY THOUSAND.

FIFTEEN THOUSAND.

FIVE THOUSAND.

THREE THOUSAND.

ONE THOUSAND.

[Man] VOYAGE TO THE
BOTTOM OF THE SEA.

STARRING RICHARD BASEHART,

DAVID HEDISON.

VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.

REMEMBER, LEE, WHEN
YOU CONTACT RICHMOND

HE'LL PUT YOU IN TOUCH
WITH THE UNDERGROUND.

DON'T TAKE ANY UNNECESSARY
CHANCES, BUT TRY

TO FIND OUT WHAT'S
HAPPENING WITH OUR U-2's.

WHAT IF RICHMOND ISN'T ON THE
BEACH? THEN HIGHTAIL IT BACK HERE FAST.

IN ANY CASE, WE WILL
PICK YOU UP IN FOUR HOURS.

YES, SIR. I UNDERSTAND. CAPTAIN?

WANT ANOTHER LOOK AT RICHMOND?

I DON'T NEED IT. BY THIS TIME I
COULD PICK HIM OUT OF A CROWD.

[Curley On Speaker] CAPTAIN, WE'RE
8,000 YARDS OFF RAS KANDARA.

VERY WELL. COME
TO 4,000 AND SURFACE.

TOTAL BLACKOUT.
NO RUNNING LIGHTS.

SCANNING AND
DETECTION REPORTS, SIR.

STILL NOTHING? NO ROCKETS, NO
INTERCEPT MISSILES, NO PLANES.

STILL, WE KEEP ON LOSING U-2's. WE'D
BETTER GET THAT LANDING BOAT READY.

WELL, LET'S HOPE I COME BACK
WITH SOMETHING. GOOD LUCK.

SO, THE SEAVIEW IS STILL
IN THE RED SEA AREA?

INVESTIGATING THE
U-2 CRASHES, SIR.

THIS COULD UPSET
THE ENTIRE TIMETABLE.

I FAIL TO SEE HOW, SIR.

THE MAGNUS BEAM IS INVULNERABLE
TO ATTACK HERE IN THESE CAVERNS.

THE ONLY ENTRANCE BY SEA IS FAR
TOO DEEP. NO SUBMARINE COULD ENTER.

THIS ONE CAN. MAJOR AMADI...

I CHARGE YOU WITH FULL RESPONSIBILITY
TO DEAL WITH THIS AMERICAN SUBMARINE.

AND WILL YOU ALSO GIVE ME A FREE
HAND TO ACT IN ANY WAY I SEE FIT?

YOU HAVE IT.

THEN IT WILL BE DEALT WITH.

WILL YOU BE OKAY, SKIPPER? YEAH.
YOU BETTER NOT HANG AROUND HERE.

I'LL MEET YOU AT THIS
SPOT AT 0300. YES, SIR.

GOOD LUCK, CAPTAIN.
THANKS. SHOVE OFF.

PUT THE GUN AWAY, CAPTAIN.

I'M JERRY RICHMOND.
SHOW YOURSELF.

I JUST WANTED TO BE SURE. IT'S ABOUT
AN HOUR INTO TOWN. LET'S GET STARTED.

HEY, WAIT A MINUTE. DO YOU
HAVE IDENTITY PAPERS FOR ME?

BEST WE COULD GET
IN THE TIME WE HAD.

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO GET
INTO RAS KANDARA FROM HERE?

SURE. I MEMORIZED THE MAPS, BUT I
THOUGHT YOU WERE GONNA GUIDE ME.

ONLY AS FAR AS THE MAIN ROAD.
I'VE GOT A FEELING THEY'RE ONTO ME.

IF THEY ARE, IT WOULDN'T BE A GOOD
IDEA TO GO INTO TOWN TOGETHER.

I UNDERSTAND. NOW
YOU'LL BE ALL RIGHT.

I'LL GET YOU ONTO THE HIGHWAY.

ONCE IN TOWN, FIND A NIGHTCLUB
CALLED THE GOLDEN PARROT.

- GOLDEN PARROT.
- ASK FOR A SINGER NAMED...

[Gunshot]

RICHMOND! RICHMOND! [Groaning]

WHAT SINGER? WHAT'S HIS NAME?

GOLDEN... PARROT. [Gasps]

[Grunts]

[Gunshot]

[Panting]

THANKS FOR THE HELP.

YOU CAN THANK ME LATER. BETTER GET
OUT OF HERE BEFORE THE POLICE COME.

YEAH. NO, THIS WAY!
LET'S GO. COME ON.

YOU'RE AN AMERICAN, HUH?

IS IT THAT OBVIOUS?

YOU WILL NOT LAST LONG HERE.

THE SECRET POLICE
SWARMS ALL OVER THE CITY.

BUT I WILL HELP YOU.

WHY SHOULD YOU?

NOT ALL OF US DISLIKE AMERICANS.

WHERE WERE YOU GOING?

A NIGHTCLUB CALLED
THE GOLDEN PARROT.

I WILL TAKE YOU THERE. WHO
DO YOU WANT TO SEE THERE?

- I DON'T KNOW.
- [Laughs]

IT'S NO MATTER. I'LL TAKE
YOU THERE ANYWAY. COME.

[Door Closes]

QUICK, UP THESE STAIRS.

FALAZIR.

I TRUST WE ARE IN TIME.

THE BAIT IS TAKEN.

YEAH, THE FISH WILL BE OURS,
BUT ONLY WHEN WE'RE READY.

[Audience Applauding]

♪♪ [Orchestra: Up-tempo]

[Audience Laughing]

LUANA?

MY NAME'S JERRY RICHMOND.

[Audience Applauding]

COME WITH ME.

WHERE IS JERRY RICHMOND?

HE'S DEAD.

WE WERE AMBUSHED ON THE BEACH.

THEN THEY KNOW.

WHO ARE YOU?

I'M AN AMERICAN. MY
NAME'S LEE CRANE.

WILL YOU HELP ME LOCATE
THE UNDERGROUND?

I MIGHT,

IF I COULD BE SURE WHO YOU ARE.

WHAT CAN I SAY? THEY DIDN'T
GIVE ME ANY SECRET PASSWORD.

AND JERRY RICHMOND IS DEAD?

BELIEVE ME, LUANA,
THERE ISN'T MUCH TIME.

YOU'VE GOT TO TRUST ME.

LET US SAY I'M WILLING TO HELP.

WHAT WOULD YOU WANT?

I'VE GOT TO FIND THE LOCATION
OF A WEAPON, OR WHATEVER IT IS,

THAT'S KNOCKING
DOWN OUR U-2 PLANES.

WERE YOU FOLLOWED?

NO, I DON'T THINK SO.

WE KNOW WHAT HAS BEEN
DESTROYING YOUR PLANES.

IT IS BURIED IN THE
CLIFFS ALONG THE COAST.

IT USES SOME KIND OF MAGNETIC
FORCE, OR... VERY POWERFUL.

MM, NO WONDER OUR
DETECTION INSTRUMENTS

COULDN'T SPOT ANYTHING.
HOW CAN WE REACH IT?

I DON'T KNOW. BUT THERE IS A
MAN WHO MAY BE ABLE TO HELP YOU.

I'LL TRY TO GET YOU TO HIM.

- PERHAPS I CAN HELP YOU.
- AMADI!

YOU WERE FOLLOWED.

BUT I KNOW THIS MAN. HE SAVED MY LIFE
WHEN I WAS ATTACKED IN THE STREETS.

I KNOW HIM TOO.

HE'S GENERAL GAMAL'S
CHIEF OF SECURITY.

A VERY DIFFICULT ROLE FOR ME. SIR, I HAVE
DONE YOU A FAVOR. NOW YOU OWE ME ONE.

I WANT ASYLUM ON THE SUBMARINE
SEAVIEW WHICH BROUGHT YOU HERE.

NOW... NOW, WAIT A MINUTE.
HOW DO YOU KNOW ALL THIS?

YOU FORGET, MY FRIEND, I AM THE
HEAD OF MY COUNTRY'S SECRET POLICE.

- WHY SHOULD I TRUST YOU?
- ALL RIGHT.

GENERAL GAMAL IS ABOUT TO PLUNGE MY
COUNTRY INTO WAR. WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS.

YOU HAVE GIVEN US AN
OPPORTUNITY TO PREVENT IT.

ONCE ON BOARD THE SUBMARINE, I WILL
LEAD YOU TO AN UNDERGROUND ENTRANCE.

TWO CAREFULLY PLACED
MISSILES WILL DESTROY THE

WEAPON, AND WITH IT,
GENERAL GAMAL'S POWER.

WELL, FORGET IT. EVEN
IF I BOUGHT YOUR STORY,

I WOULDN'T TAKE YOU
ABOARD THE SEAVIEW.

YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE HIM NOW.

WHY? DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?

IF HE'S LYING, HE CAN
HAVE HIS SECRET POLICE

ON OUR HEADS THE
MOMENT HE STEPS OUTSIDE.

SHE'S RIGHT, YOU
KNOW... IF I'M LYING.

BUT IF I'M NOT, I CAN HELP YOU TO
DESTROY THIS TERRIBLE WEAPON.

IT'S THE ONLY THING
WE CAN DO NOW.

PUT HIM ABOARD THE
SUBMARINE AND COME BACK HERE.

I WILL HAVE SET UP THE MEETING
WITH A MAN WHO CAN HELP YOU.

I HAVE PRESENTED YOU WITH
A TERRIBLE DILEMMA, HAVEN'T I?

[Nelson] OBVIOUSLY,
MAJOR AMADI, YOUR...

YOUR OFFER INTRIGUES
ME. OBVIOUSLY.

DO YOU KNOW WHY CAPTAIN CRANE
DECIDED TO SPEND AN EXTRA DAY ON SHORE?

NO, SIR. NO, THE CAPTAIN
DID NOT CONFIDE IN ME.

I SEE. PATTERSON.

I WANT YOU TO KEEP A VERY CLOSE
WATCH ON OUR GUEST. RIGHT, SIR.

I HOPE THIS DOESN'T OFFEND YOU, MAJOR,
BUT WE HAVE TO TAKE CERTAIN PRECAUTIONS.

NATURALLY, ADMIRAL. I DON'T THINK
YOU'LL BE QUITE SO SUSPICIOUS...

WHEN I HAVE GIVEN YOU THE
INFORMATION THAT'S IN MY POSSESSION.

I HOPE NOT. PATTERSON, WILL YOU
SHOW THE MAJOR TO HIS QUARTERS?

RIGHT, SIR. THIS WAY, MAJOR.

THERE, THAT HOUSE.

ABDUL AZZIZ, THE CURIO
DEALER, LIVES THERE.

HE IS THE MAN YOU MUST SEE.

WAIT.

[Whispering, Indistinct]

I DON'T WANT TO TAKE
ANYTHING FOR GRANTED.

THERE'S NO USE BOTH OF US STICKING
OUR NECKS OUT. THEN LET ME GO.

NO, YOU STAY HERE.

I'LL SIGNAL FOR YOU.

ALL RIGHT?

[Knocking]

HELLO!

GOOD EVENING, SIR.

WE'VE BEEN EXPECTING
YOU. MR. AZZIZ.

[Ringing]

[Grunting]

STRETCHING DUE EAST
FOR THREE IT'S THE

ONLYRMOUS FISSURE
UNDERWATER ENTRANCE TO IT.

NOW, ACCORDING TO MAJOR AMADI, THE
LANDWARD APPROACHES TO THE CAVERN...

ARE VERY HEAVILY FORTIFIED,
BECAUSE A NEW WEAPON

OF ENORMOUS POWER
HAS BEEN INSTALLED THERE.

IT'S ALREADY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE
DESTRUCTION OF THREE OF OUR U-2's...

AND IS NOW IN VIOLATION OF
ALL INTERNATIONAL TREATIES...

AND A DIRECT THREAT
TO THE SUEZ CANAL.

MAJOR AMADI'S PREPARED TO
LEAD US AGAINST THIS INSTALLATION.

IT'S THE PRICE HE'S
WILLING TO PAY FOR ASYLUM.

NOW, MAJOR, BEFORE I
COMMIT THIS SUBMARINE,

I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS RIFT UNDER
THE CAVERNS. WE NEED PLENTY OF ELBOW ROOM.

THERE'S PLENTY, SIR. THIS TUNNEL IS
OVER 400 FEET AT ITS NARROWEST POINT.

HEADROOM?

IT'S 250 FEET AT THE ENTRANCE,
INCREASING TO OVER 800.

WHAT PUZZLES ME IS THE LACK
OF ANY UNDERWATER DEFENSES.

IT SEEMS TO ME THERE'S A FLAW IN
YOUR GOVERNMENT'S THINKING THERE.

IT'S MY LATE GOVERNMENT, SIR. I
NO LONGER OWE THEM MY LOYALTY.

YES, OF COURSE.

BUT CAN YOU TELL ME WHY
THAT CHANNEL IS WIDE OPEN?

IT'S VERY SIMPLE, SIR.
IT'S TOO DEEP. WE HAVE

NO SUBMARINES THAT
WILL OPERATE AT THIS LEVEL,

NEITHER HAS ANYONE ELSE.

THERE'S ONLY THE SEAVIEW. NO SUBMARINE
COULD HOPE TO MAKE THAT PASSAGE,

SO THERE ARE NO DEFENSES. I SEE.

PATTERSON, WILL YOU ESCORT
MAJOR AMADI TO THE MISSILE ROOM?

WE'LL CONTACT YOU WHEN
WE'RE IN POSITION. VERY WELL.

UH, MAJOR?

YES? CAN YOU TELL ME
HOW YOU FIGURED 400 FEET...

IS THE WIDTH OF THAT
CHANNEL, ESPECIALLY

SINCE YOU CAN'T GET ANY
SUBMARINES DOWN THERE?

WE MEASURED WITH OUR
FATHOMETER, SIR, FROM THE SURFACE.

I SEE. THANK YOU.

WELL, IF YOU'RE THINKING
WHAT I'M THINKING, ADMIRAL...

YOU REALIZE THERE'S ONLY ONE
WAY TO MEASURE THAT CHANNEL.

SURE, PHYSICALLY. IN A CONFINED SPACE
LIKE THAT, A FATHOMETER JUST WOULDN'T WORK.

IF HE'D TOLD ME HE USED A DIVING
BELL, I MIGHT'VE BELIEVED HIM.

NAVIGATION, REPORT.
[On Speaker] NAVIGATION.

WE'RE APPROACHING THE CAVERN
AREA, DEAD AHEAD 6,000 YARDS.

MANEUVERING, ANSWER
BELLS TO ONE-THIRD.

ANSWERING BELLS
TO ONE-THIRD. AYE, SIR.

CHIP, I WANT YOU TO BRING US...

APPROXIMATELY 1,000 YARDS
OFF THE CHANNEL ENTRANCE.

THEN COME TO A DEAD
STOP. AYE, AYE, SIR.

THAT'S ALL, GENTLEMEN.

[On Speaker] A
HUNDRED FEET, SIR.

ALL STOP.

RIG FOR SILENT RUNNING.

AYE, AYE, SIR. RIG
FOR SILENT RUNNING.

WE'RE GOING IN, CHIP.

- RADIO SILENCE, MINIMUM SPEED.
- MAINTAIN RADIO SILENCE. AHEAD DEAD SLOW.

AYE, AYE, SIR.

PATTERSON, YOU AND MAJOR
AMADI STILL IN THE MISSILE ROOM?

[Patterson] YES, SIR.

WELL, KEEP HIM
THERE. WE'LL JOIN YOU.

WHY ARE WE WAITING?
WHERE'S THE ADMIRAL?

RELAX, MAJOR. THERE HE IS.

ADMIRAL, WHAT HAS GONE WRONG WITH OUR
PLANS? WE SHOULD HAVE GONE OUT BY NOW.

I SHOULD HAVE GONE INTO THE MINI-SUB TO
SHOW YOU THE ENTRANCE TO THE CAVERN.

WE FOUND IT WITHOUT
YOUR ASSISTANCE, MAJOR.

YOU WOULDN'T HAVE LASTED
THREE SECONDS AT THIS DEPTH.

SIR, I PROTEST! YOU COULD
HAVE TRIPPED AN ALARM.

BUT WE DIDN'T.

WE'RE BRINGING THE SUB UP TO
1,000 FEET AS SOON AS WE CAN.

THEN I'M SENDING THE MIN-SUB
OUT TO SEARCH THE CAVERNS.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO ACCOMPANY
ME? YES. YES, OF COURSE.

YES. I IMAGINED YOU MIGHT.

- IS SOMETHING TROUBLING YOU,
ADMIRAL?
- YES, MAJOR, IT IS.

IT'S TROUBLING ME ENOUGH
TO MAKE ME WANT TO BACK

THIS SUB OUT OF HERE AND
HEAD FOR SAFER WATERS.

SIR, PLEASE, TAKE MY WORD!

WE ARE ON THE THRESHOLD
OF AN IMPORTANT DISCOVERY.

I HAVE NO DOUBT WE ARE, BUT THERE MUST
BE SAFER WAYS OF GETTING INFORMATION.

EXCUSE ME, SIR. [Mutters]

I'VE UNDERRATED YOUR PEOPLE, MAJOR.
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH CAPTAIN CRANE?

I DON'T UNDERSTAND. I DON'T
KNOW. I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA.

YOU KNOW PERFECTLY
WELL. WE'VE JUST BEEN

INFORMED BY SHORTWAVE
FROM THE UNDERGROUND...

THAT GENERAL GAMAL
HAS CAPTURED CRANE.

NOW, WHERE IS HE?

WHERE IS HE?

[Clattering]

LOOK AT THE TORPEDOES!
CONTROL, WHAT HAPPENED?

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TORPEDOES? THEY
LOOK LIKE THEY'RE STUCK AGAINST THE WALL!

THE LIGHTS! CUTTING
THE CIRCUIT BREAKERS!

CONTROL! COME IN, CONTROL!

LINE'S DEAD. CHECK
FORWARD. AYE, AYE, SIR.

ADMIRAL.

[Grunts]

WHAT THE DEVIL?

ALL THE HATCHES
ARE JAMMED TIGHT.

AMADI.

WHAT ARE THEY USING ON US?

PATTERSON.

YOU HAVE FIVE SECONDS TO
MAKE UP YOUR MIND, MAJOR.

JUST FIVE SECONDS.

HAVE HIM PULL THE
TRIGGER, ADMIRAL.

YOUR GUN WILL NOT FIRE.
NOTHING MADE OF STEEL

WILL MOVE WHILE OUR
WEAPON IS IN OPERATION.

YOUR MOTORS, YOUR PUMPS, EVERY PIECE
OF MACHINERY ON BOARD IS IMMOBILIZED.

- MAGNETISM.
- THE MAGNUS BEAM, ADMIRAL.

NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY YOU WERE SO
ANXIOUS TO GET AWAY IN THE MINI-SUB.

I NEVER WANTED SO
MUCH TO PULL A TRIGGER.

WHY BOTHER, PATTERSON?

I'M ALREADY A DEAD MAN,
GENTLEMEN, JUST AS YOU ARE.

[Bell Rings]

COME IN, COME IN, SIGNORINA.

FORGIVE ME THAT I ASK YOU TO
COME TO THE HOME OF MY COUSIN.

IT'S A SMALL MATTER OF
THE POLICE. THEY HAVE

TAKEN IT INTO THEIR HEADS
TO WATCH ME CLOSELY.

BUT IF THEY ARE WATCHING...
OH, WE'RE SAFE ENOUGH HERE.

HOW MUCH DO THE
POLICE KNOW, ABDUL AZZIZ?

EH, NOTHING THEY
CAN PROVE. STILL, I'M

ANNOYED WITH THEM.
THEY TAPPED MY TELEPHONE,

WHICH IS HOW THEY ARRESTED
YOUR AMERICAN SO EASILY.

BY THE WAY,

WHO IS HE?

A MAN NAMED CRANE,

CAPTAIN OF THE AMERICAN
SUBMARINE SEAVIEW.

WE MUST GET WORD TO THEM
THAT HE HAS BEEN CAPTURED. [Scoffs]

I'M TOLD THAT HAS ALREADY
BEEN ARRANGED. BUT,

UH, TELL ME, HOW WAS I
EXPECTED TO HELP HIM?

BY GETTING HIM INFORMATION...

ON THE SECRET WEAPON WHICH
HAS DESTROYED AMERICAN PLANES.

UH, NOW THERE IS AN AREA PERHAPS
IN WHICH I MAY STILL BE OF HELP.

THE WEAPON YOU SEEK IS HIDDEN DEEP
IN THE CAVERNS UNDER THE NAVAL BASE.

IT'S A MARVELOUS NEW
WEAPON, WITH WHICH OUR

BELOVED GENERAL...
ALLAH BE GRACIOUS TO HIM...

WILL MAKE WAR AND
GET US ALL KILLED.

I MUST FIND OUT WHERE HE IS.

AND THEN? THEN? THEN
HE MUST BE RESCUED.

ALL THIS WILL NOT BE EASY.

FOR THE SAKE OF
EVERYTHING YOU BELIEVE IN,

IT MUST BE DONE.

ADMIRAL? [Nelson]
WHAT IS IT, CHIP?

THE DEPTH GAUGE IS
MOVING. IT'S NOT FROZEN.

IT'S A FIBER NEEDLE, NOT STEEL.

IT REACTS TO OUTSIDE PRESSURE. IT'S RISING.
I THOUGHT WE WERE DEAD IN THE WATER.

IT'S IMPOSSIBLE. WE'RE GOING UP.

ONLY A FEW FEET A
MINUTE, BUT WE'RE GOING UP.

IT'S THE POWER OF THE
MAGNUS BEAM, ADMIRAL.

SLOWLY BUT SURELY, IT'S PULLING
YOUR SUBMARINE TOWARD IT...

WITH A FORCE NOTHING
CAN RESIST. LET IT PULL.

WE'RE GOING UP. WE'RE
HEADED FOR THE SURFACE.

NOT TO THE SURFACE, PATTERSON,
BUT TO THE MAGNUS BEAM.

THIS SUBMARINE WILL BE
DRAWN IRRESISTIBLY UP,

UNTIL ITS HULL IS CRUSHED
LIKE THE THIN SHELL OF AN EGG.

AND YOU'RE PREPARED TO DIE WITH US WITH
NO EFFORT TO SAVE YOUR OWN MISERABLE LIFE.

I DON'T WANT TO DIE. BUT IF I HAVE
TO PAY THE PRICE, IT WILL BE WORTH IT.

FANATICISM IS NO SUBSTITUTE
FOR INTELLIGENCE, AMADI.

I PREFER TO THINK OF IT
AS PERSONAL COURAGE.

YOUR INTELLIGENCE BUILT THIS
SUBMARINE, MY COURAGE WILL DESTROY IT.

[Blows Landing] [Crane Grunting]

CAPTAIN CRANE, THE AMBITIOUS
PLANS I HAVE FOR MY GOVERNMENT...

DEMAND A CERTAIN SEVERITY.

IN A FEW HOURS, YOUR
SUBMARINE WILL BE DEAD.

YOUR STUBBORNNESS WILL
HAVE DONE NO ONE ANY GOOD.

THE SEAVIEW IS IMMOBILIZED
BY OUR MAGNUS BEAM...

IMMOBILIZED AND
SLOWLY BUT SURELY DYING.

ACTUALLY, WE HAVE AN
INTRIGUING CHOICE OPEN TO US.

WE CAN CRUSH YOUR
SUBMARINE IN AN HOUR OR TWO,

OR WE COULD LET THE MEN DIE SLOWLY,
ONE BY ONE, AS THEIR AIR IS USED UP.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR
CONTACT IN THE UNDERGROUND,

AND PERHAPS... JUST PERHAPS...
YOUR FRIENDS MAY BE SAVED.

-[Grunts] -THIS MAN WILL TELL YOU
NOTHING. TAKE HIM OUT AND HAVE HIM SHOT.

[Choked Grunts]

KEY. [Snapping Fingers]

GUARD? GUARD!

[Grunting, Groaning]

LEE! LEE, IT'S LUANA.

ALL RIGHT.

COME ON. HOW DID YOU FIND ME?

ABDUL AZZIZ. YOU CAN TRUST HIM.

THERE IS A PASSAGE ALONG
HERE THAT LEADS INTO A DEEP WELL.

IT'S A DIFFICULT CLIMB,
BUT IT'S THE ONLY WAY OUT.

NO. NO, WE'VE GOTTA GO THIS WAY.

NO! YOU DON'T KNOW
WHAT YOU'RE SAYING.

LISTEN TO ME, LEE.
WE'VE GOT TO GET OUT!

NO! LISTEN TO ME. THE SEAVIEW'S
HELPLESS OUT THERE. WE GOTTA HELP THEM.

WE'VE GOTTA GO THIS WAY.

DEPTH 3-8-5.

STILL RISING, ADMIRAL.
YOUR TIME IS GETTING SHORT.

SHUT UP!

SIR, WE'RE NOT TOO DEEP NOW.
WE COULD USE THE SCUBA GEAR.

IF WE COULD OPEN THE
ESCAPE HATCH. YOU TRIED

IT ONCE, CURLEY. YOU
KNOW IT'S HOPELESS.

YES, SIR.

DEPTH 3-7-5 FEET AND RISING.

AAH!

NOW EXPLAIN THE SPECIAL RIFLES.

I DON'T KNOW HOW IT WORKS,
BUT IT'S IMMOBILIZED THE SEAVIEW,

AND IT'S GONNA DESTROY IT UNLESS
WE DO SOMETHING PRETTY FAST.

I BELIEVE THE TIME'S COME TO FIGHT. WE
CAN NOW USE THE HELP OF MY COUSINS.

CURLEY.

YES, SIR. GET THAT COIL OF
COPPER WIRE OVER HERE...

AND THE BATTERY
JUMPERS. AYE, AYE, SIR.

LEND A HAND HERE. I WANT TO
MOVE THE MINI-SUB OUT IN THE OPEN.

GET THE CANOPY OPEN.

KOWALSKI? SIR?

I'LL NEED THE BATTERIES
OUT OF HERE. AYE, AYE, SIR.

NO, YOU'RE WRONG, ADMIRAL. IT WON'T
WORK. THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO.

I WOULDN'T BET ON IT, MAJOR.
ADMIRAL, HERE'S THE COIL YOU WANTED.

PUT 'EM OVER THERE
BY THE HATCH. YES, SIR.

GOT 'ER LOOSE, KOWALSKI?
YEAH, ONE OF THEM, SIR.

I'M WORKING ON THE OTHER
NOW. SOON AS YOU GET

'EM OUT, BRING 'EM
OVER HERE BY THE HATCH.

CAPTAIN, 250 AND STILL RISING.

HURRY, MEN. WE
HAVEN'T GOT MUCH TIME.

[Approaching Footsteps]

WITH THE HELP OF ALLAH, I
RETURN WITH ONE OF MY COUSINS.

THERE ARE MANY MORE
ON THE WAY. WHAT'S THAT?

A PRESENT FOR OUR BELOVED
GENERAL, ALLAH GLORIFY HIS NAME.

- DYNAMITE.
- LIBERATED FROM A CARELESS
DIGGER OF OIL WELLS.

THESE WILL PULVERIZE THE GREAT MACHINE,
WITH HOPEFULLY JUST ENOUGH LEFT OVER...

FOR THE GENERAL HIMSELF.
GREAT WORK, ABDUL.

BUT HOW DO WE GET THESE
EXPLOSIVES OVER TO THE MACHINE?

THE FEMALE MIND IS ETERNALLY
BOGGED DOWN WITH PRACTICALITIES.

NO COVER AT ALL.

HE'D BE CROSSING UNDER
THE NOSES OF THE SENTRIES.

WE MUST DO THE BEST WE CAN WITH
WHAT ALLAH HAS BEEN PLEASED TO SEND US.

GO FIND MY COUSINS
QUICKLY, AND BRING 'EM HERE

THE WAY WE CAME.
[Speaking Native Language]

NOW WE CAN DO NOTHING BUT WAIT.

1-9-5. RISING ALL THE TIME, SIR.

THAT'S ENOUGH, CURLEY. NOW
THE NEXT TERMINAL. YES, SIR.

DEPTH, CHIP? 1-5-0,
SIR. STILL RISING.

HURRY IT UP, CURLEY. YES, SIR.

DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU CAN GET
THAT HATCH OPEN IN TIME? IT DEPENDS.

IF THE MAGNETIC FIELD CREATED BY THE
MAGNUS BEAM IS ANYTHING LIKE I THINK IT IS,

I CAN, AT LEAST
FOR A MINUTE OR SO.

THEN GIVE ME DIVING EQUIPMENT AND LET
ME GET OUT. NOW, WHY WOULD I DO THAT?

I'LL ARRANGE AN HONORABLE SURRENDER FOR
YOU. THERE'LL BE NO NEED FOR ANYONE TO DIE.

[Chuckles] SURRENDER, MAJOR?

PATTERSON, BREAK
OUT THE SCUBA GEAR.

YES, SIR.

[Distant Clamoring]

PFFT, PFFT!

DISTINGUISHED
VISITORS. GENERAL GAMAL.

OUR PRISONER HAS ESCAPED. HE IS
STILL SOMEWHERE HERE IN THE CABIN AREA.

- HE IS TO BE SHOT ON SIGHT.
- YOU MEN REINFORCE THE SENTRY
DETAIL. KEEP A SHARP LOOKOUT.

NO ONE IS TO APPROACH
THE MAGNUS BEAM.

I WANT MORE GUARDS
POSTED. THE REST OF THE

GARRISON WILL JOIN IN
THE SEARCH FOR CRANE.

EVERY INCH OF THE CAVERN AREA MUST
BE COVERED. YES, SIR. WE'LL FIND THEM.

IF YOU DON'T, I WARN YOU, THE
CONSEQUENCES WILL BE MOST UNPLEASANT.

WE'VE WAITED TOO LONG. I MUST
CRUSH THE SUBMARINE AT ONCE.

ORDER FULL POWER ON
THE MAGNUS BEAM. YES, SIR.

OH, HOW I'D LIKE TO GIVE HIM A
21-GUN SALUTE. [Imitates Gunshot]

UP TO 1-0-5 FEET, SIR. THE
RATE OF ASCENT IS INCREASING.

FORGET ABOUT THE
GAUGE, CHIP, AND GET READY.

WE'RE GONNA DO SOME
ATTACKING OF OUR OWN.

HERE THEY ARE, SIR. THANKS, CURLEY.
BRING ME THOSE PLASTIC EXPLOSIVES.

YES, SIR! [Morton] WE'RE
ATTACKING WITH SPEAR GUNS?

THEY'RE MADE OF ALUMINUM. THEY
WON'T BE AFFECTED BY THE RAY.

BESIDES, WE HAVE THE ELEMENT
OF SURPRISE ON OUR SIDE.

PATTERSON. YES, SIR.

GET READY TO MAKE THE
CONNECTION. AYE, AYE, SIR.

[Footsteps Approaching]

CAN'T MOVE. WE'RE PINNED DOWN.

AND WHERE ARE ALL THE
COUSINS YOU BRAG ABOUT?

WHAT A BURDEN IT IS WHEN A MAN
IS DEPENDENT ON HIS RELATIVES.

WAIT! NOW THEY COME.

THE FAMILY OF AZZIZ IS READY.

SENTRIES EVERYWHERE AND
ALL THAT GROUND TO CROSS.

WHAT WE NEED IS A
DIVERSION. UNDER ANY

CIRCUMSTANCES A DIVERSION
IS A PLEASANT THING,

BUT NOW IT WOULD
BE A GIFT FROM ALLAH.

I'M GONNA TRY FOR IT MYSELF.

WE CAN'T WAIT HERE.
WE'LL BE SLAUGHTERED.

LEE! DON'T.

REMEMBER, THE BATTERIES CAN ONLY NEUTRALIZE
THE MAGNETIC FIELD FOR ABOUT 90 SECONDS,

SO WE'LL HAVE TO WORK FAST.

EVERYBODY READY? YES, SIR.

ALL RIGHT, PATTERSON. GO!

[Whining Hum]

NO!

[Grunts]

IF YOU ONLY KNEW, SIR, HOW
LONG I'VE BEEN WANTING TO DO THAT.

GOOD WORK, PATTERSON.
SHALL WE TRY IT AGAIN?

RIGHT, SIR.

[Humming Resumes]

WELL? I'VE SENT FOR
SOME GAS PROJECTILES.

WE'LL SATURATE THE TUNNELS
AND WE'LL SOON FLUSH HIM OUT.

WELL, UH, HOW CLOSE IS THE SEAVIEW
TO THE BASE OF THE MAGNUS BEAM?

LESS THAN 50 FEET. ANOTHER TWO
MINUTES IT'LL BE CRUSHED TO POWDER.

VERY GOOD THEN.

ALL WE CAN DO IS WATCH AND WAIT.

UH!

ALLAH BE PRAISED.

THERE'S YOUR DIVERSION.

AAH!

UH!

[Gamal] THE GUARD
HAS LEFT THE CATWALK.

[Falazir] STRANGE. LOOK!

[Gunshots]

[Gunshots Continue]

YOU STAY HERE. KEEP DOWN.

AAH!

[Groaning]

HIT THE DECK!

- WE'LL PUT YOU ASHORE
AT RAS KANDARA AS A PRISONER.
- I CLAIM ASYLUM, ADMIRAL.

YOU DID THAT BEFORE, AMADI. WE DIDN'T
TAKE YOUR REQUEST AT FACE VALUE THEN.

- WHAT MAKES YOU
THINK WE WILL NOW?
- WITH GENERAL GAMAL DEAD,

THE NEW GOVERNMENT WILL GIVE
YOU A MOST INTERESTING TRIAL, MAJOR.
