Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964–1968): Season 1, Episode 13 - The Blizzard Makers - full transcript

Winter in summer? Snow has struck the United States as far south as Florida, and Nelson knows why: somehow, the Gulf Stream has shifted east, permitting colder temperatures. Climatologist ...

[Wind Whistling]

[Knocking]

[Man On Phone] THE ADMIRAL JUST
ARRIVED AT DR. MELTON'S HOUSE.

I SEE. THEN THERE IS
NO LONGER ANY DOUBT.

NELSON WILL NOW TALK DR. MELTON INTO GOING
WITH HIM ON THE GULF STREAM EXPEDITION.

THIS MUST BE
STOPPED AT ALL COSTS.

PHONE ME THE MOMENT THE
ADMIRAL LEAVES DR. MELTON'S HOUSE.

YES, SIR.

[Engine Starts]

HE JUST LEFT. VERY WELL.

PUT THE TELEPHONE
PLAN INTO EFFECT.



I'LL JOIN YOU IN ABOUT
TWO HOURS. YES, SIR.

THERE IT IS.

DON'T INTERRUPT YOUR WORK,
DEAR. IT'S THE TELEPHONE REPAIRMAN.

AT THIS TIME OF NIGHT? SOMETHING
WRONG WITH THE PHONES?

NO, SIR. IT'S THE BLIZZARD. WE'RE
CHECKING OUT THE WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD.

ALL RIGHT, GO AHEAD.

IF YOU'VE GOT AN EXTENSION PHONE,
LADY, I'D LIKE TO CHECK THAT OUT.

YES. RIGHT THIS WAY.

THERE IT IS.

[Rings]

[Ringing Continues]

[Moans] [Ringing Continues]

[Coughing]

[Coughing]



[Ringing Continues]

[Coughs] HELLO?

HELLO?

[Coughs]

SHE WON'T STIR FOR
AT LEAST 10 HOURS.

TAKE HIM AWAY.

[Man] VOYAGE TO THE
BOTTOM OF THE SEA.

STARRING RICHARD BASEHART,

DAVID HEDISON.

VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.

[Wind Howling]

CAPTAIN, I'VE CHECKED NAVIGATION
FIVE TIMES IN THE LAST HOUR.

THEY SWEAR UP AND DOWN
WE'RE RIGHT ON COURSE.

LOOKS MORE LIKE THE BERING
STRAIT THAN THE GULF STREAM TO ME.

HOW FAR ARE WE FROM THE
NAVAL BASE? E.T.A. IS 0100.

THAT'S LESS THAN TWO HOURS.

HOPE THE ADMIRAL'S
STILL UP WHEN WE DOCK.

IF I KNOW THE ADMIRAL, HE'LL BE
WAITING RIGHT THERE ON THE PIER.

- YOU SEE ANYTHING, KOWALSKI?
- NO, SIR.

BUT IF I SPOT AN ICEBERG,
DON'T BE SURPRISED.

CARRY ON!

IN SHORT, LEE, I'M FLYING TO
WASHINGTON IN THE MORNING.

WITH LUCK, I'LL HAVE APPROVAL
AND BE BACK TOMORROW NIGHT.

CAN YOU BE READY TO PUT TO SEA
FIRST THING THE FOLLOWING MORNING?

NO PROBLEM, SIR.

HOW ABOUT THIS WASHINGTON BUSINESS?
DO YOU EXPECT ANY HITCH ON THAT END?

WELL, I'VE LEARNED NEVER TO
TAKE ANYTHING FOR GRANTED.

WE HAVE A PRETTY GOOD CHANCE, NOW
THAT DR. MELTON HAS AGREED TO COME ALONG.

WELL, WE SHOULD HAVE.

IF ONE OF THE WORLD'S LEADING
CLIMATOLOGISTS AGREES WITH YOUR THEORY,

WHY SHOULDN'T WASHINGTON?

YES, LEE. MELTON IS THE
KEY TO THE ENTIRE PROJECT.

WITH HIS HELP, WE'LL
FIND THE ANSWER.

THE RIGHT FRONTAL LOBE
HAS BEEN CIRCUMVENTED,

AND THE PATIENT HAS NOW
BEEN COMPLETELY PROGRAMMED...

WITH INFORMATION AND
BEHAVIOR PATTERNS.

WE'LL SEE. HOW SOON
CAN HE BE REVIVED?

- AT ONCE, IF YOU LIKE.
- THEN DO IT. DO IT!

OH!

YOUR SCALP WILL BE TENDER FOR AN
HOUR OR SO. DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

DR. MELTON?

DO YOU KNOW ME?
FREDERICK CREGAR.

THAT'S GOOD. VERY GOOD.

LET ME SHOW YOU SOMETHING.

YOU SEE THIS, DOCTOR?

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS?

THIS IS A MAN NAMED
ADMIRAL HARRIMAN NELSON.

THERE'S THE ADMIRAL. WHAT
ARE YOU GOING TO DO, DOCTOR?

THAT WAS VERY GOOD,
DOCTOR. I MUST COMPLIMENT YOU.

NOW FOR THE REAL TEST. HOW DO I
CHANGE OR GIVE NEW INSTRUCTIONS?

JUST RECORD IT.

DR. MELTON, I ORDER
YOU TO KILL YOURSELF.

WELL, WELL, WELL. I REALLY
MUST COMPLIMENT YOU, DOCTOR.

YOU'VE EXCEEDED MY BEST HOPES.

I'D ALWAYS BEEN TOLD THE MORE INTELLIGENT
THE PERSON, THE BETTER THE SUBJECT.

YOU KNOW, I NEVER REALLY
BELIEVED THAT UNTIL NOW.

NOW, DOCTOR, YOU'VE
DONE VERY WELL.

BUT LET'S NOT BE TOO OBVIOUS. INGENUITY...
THAT'S WHAT WE MUST STRIVE FOR.

YOU SEE, DOCTOR,

ADMIRAL NELSON BELIEVES
THAT THE CLIMATE CHANGE...

IS CAUSED BY A SHIFT
IN THE GULF STREAM.

HE'S RIGHT, BY THE WAY.

BUT WE MUSTN'T LET HIM DISCOVER
THE CAUSE OF THAT SHIFT, MUST WE?

NOW, UH, WHAT DO YOU
SUGGEST WE DO ABOUT THAT?

CHEMICALS?

TAKE ALL YOU WANT.

MY NOTES AND SLIDES, PLEASE.

THE STUFF THAT WAS
BROUGHT FROM THE HOUSE.

IMPREGNATED WITH THIS MIXTURE,

THE MATERIAL BECOMES
MORE AND MORE UNSTABLE...

AS ATMOSPHERIC
PRESSURE DECREASES.

AH. I BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND.

IN HIGHER ALTITUDES, THIS
BECOMES SOMEWHAT DANGEROUS.

ABOUT 500 FEET, IT WILL
EXPLODE WITH GREAT FORCE.

GOOD.

YOU KNOW, DOCTOR, YOU
TRULY HAVE A REMARKABLE MIND.

THE GREATER THE AMOUNT
OF MATERIAL WE TREAT,

NATURALLY, THE GREATER
THE FORCE WHEN IT EXPLODES.

I SEE. YOU BETTER HURRY NOW.

YOU MUST FINISH IN TIME
SO I CAN GET YOU BACK

HOME AND INTO BED
BEFORE YOUR WIFE WAKES UP.

[Car Door Shuts]

CHARLES? YES, DEAR?

OH, I... I DON'T KNOW
WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH ME.

I SLEPT LIKE I WAS DRUGGED.

I HAVE TO GO OUT.

[Yawns] NOW?

OH, I HAVEN'T EVEN
FIXED YOUR BREAKFAST.

I'M NOT HUNGRY.
GO BACK TO SLEEP.

OH, NO.

I HAVE TO... I HAVE A HAIR
APPOINTMENT THIS MORNING.

I SHOULD GET UP,
BUT I'M SO TIRED.

GO BACK TO SLEEP.

[Knocking] COME IN.

GOOD MORNING.
YOU HAVE A VISITOR.

DR. MELTON. THIS
IS QUITE A SURPRISE.

I'M SORRY TO BOTHER
YOU THIS WAY, ADMIRAL,

BUT I WANTED TO CATCH YOU
BEFORE YOU FLEW TO WASHINGTON.

I BROUGHT YOU SOMETHING I THOUGHT
YOU COULD USE. OH. WHAT'S THIS?

SOME NOTES AND SLIDES FROM MY
VARIOUS GULF STREAM PROJECTS.

I DIDN'T THINK OF IT UNTIL
AFTER YOU LEFT YESTERDAY,

BUT IT STRUCK ME THEY
COULD COME IN HANDY WHEN

YOU TRIED TO SELL THE
PROJECT TO WASHINGTON.

I'M QUITE SURE THEY WILL BE.

IT WAS VERY THOUGHTFUL OF YOU.

IT'S JUST ABOUT TIME. YOU SHOULD
GET STARTED FOR THE AIR BASE.

RIGHT. I HATE TO RUN OFF THIS WAY,
DOCTOR. LET ME DRIVE YOU OVER.

MY CAR IS AT THE PIER. FINE.
WE CAN TALK ON THE WAY.

I'LL GET A CREWMAN FOR THIS. NO, THANKS,
LEE. I CAN MANAGE. COME ALONG, DOCTOR.

ADMIRAL NELSON.
GOOD MORNING, SIR.

YOU CAN LEAVE WITH ME IF
YOU DON'T MIND FLYING IN A T-33.

I'M FERRYING ONE TO
WASHINGTON. GOOD. WHAT'S

THE WEATHER LIKE
BETWEEN HERE AND THERE?

IT'S CLEAR AND COLD. NEVER
REMEMBER SEEING SNOW THIS FAR SOUTH.

NEITHER DOES ANYONE
ELSE, LIEUTENANT.

SIR, COULD I GET YOU TO SIGN THIS
RELEASE, PLEASE? YES, OF COURSE.

WELL, I'LL SAY
GOOD-BYE NOW, DOCTOR.

THANKS FOR THE
LIFT. MY PLEASURE.

HAVE A GOOD FLIGHT.
I'LL SEE YOU THIS EVENING.

EXCUSE ME, SIR. THERE'S A
TELEPHONE CALL FOR YOU... WASHINGTON.

THANK YOU, CORPORAL. YOU CAN
TAKE IT AT THE READY ROOM DESK, SIR.

I'LL TAKE CARE OF YOUR BAG AND
SEE THAT IT'S STOWED ABOARD, SIR.

I'LL TRY NOT TO BE
TOO LONG, LIEUTENANT.

YOU WANTED TO SEE ME, CAPTAIN?

READ THIS.

THE ADMIRAL?

THE JET TOOK OFF, CLIMBED
TO 500 FEET AND BLEW UP.

HAS CONFIRMATION
COME FROM THE FIELD YET?

I'M WAITING FOR CONFIRMATION
NOW. NOBODY COULD SURVIVE THAT.

- I JUST DON'T BELIEVE IT.
- NO, CHIP, NEITHER CAN I.

I'VE BEEN WAITING
FOR YOU, DOCTOR.

NO, YOUR WIFE IS NOT HERE.

SHE HAD AN APPOINTMENT
WITH A HAIRDRESSER.

I TOOK THE LIBERTY
OF LETTING MYSELF IN.

I'VE JUST COME FROM
THE AIRSTRIP. YES, I KNOW.

I HEARD THE FIRST NEWS
FLASH OVER THE RADIO.

YOU DID A BEAUTIFUL
JOB, DOCTOR. BEAUTIFUL.

THANK YOU.

AND NOW...

FOR THE FINAL TOUCH.

YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THIS?

I'M WAITING.

[Doorbell Rings] STOP!

IT'S THESE UNEXPECTED LITTLE
INTERRUPTIONS THAT GIVE LIFE ITS FLAVOR.

DON'T YOU AGREE, DOCTOR?

I'LL BE WAITING IN THE BEDROOM.

[Doorbell Rings]

[Door Closes] [Nelson] I KNOW YOU
WEREN'T EXPECTING THIS VISIT, DOCTOR.

I'LL ONLY BE A
MINUTE OR TWO. BUT...

BUT... BUT THE
AIRPORT... THE ACCIDENT...

THAT WAS A TERRIBLE THING.

IT WAS A CLOSE CALL FOR ME TOO.

THE LAST MINUTE BEFORE TAKEOFF, I
RECEIVED A MESSAGE FROM WASHINGTON...

APPROVING THE PROJECT,

SO I LEFT WORD FOR THE
PLANE TO LEAVE WITHOUT ME.

THAT YOUNG PILOT
NEVER HAD A CHANCE.

O-OH, YOU MUST BE BADLY
SHAKEN. PLEASE SIT DOWN.

THANK YOU. I...

I'M AFRAID I FORGOT MY BAG. YOUR
NOTES ARE DESTROYED COMPLETELY.

[Melton] OH-OH-OH,
THAT DOESN'T MATTER.

ADMIRAL, TELL ME, WHAT
ARE YOUR PLANS NOW?

WHY...

WHY, TO LEAVE ON
OUR PROJECT AT ONCE.

YOU ARE GOING, AREN'T YOU?

YES. YES, OF COURSE I'LL GO.

GOOD. WE'LL MAKE ALL
PREPARATIONS AT ONCE.

[Door Closes]

FORGIVE ME, GENTLEMEN, IF I TELL
YOU THINGS YOU ALREADY KNOW,

BUT EVEN THE
BEST-INFORMED PEOPLE...

TEND TO THINK OF
THE GULF STREAM...

AS AN OCEANIC RIVER OF WARM WATER
COURSING UP THE ATLANTIC COAST.

IN REALITY, THOUGH, IT'S A RATHER
NARROW RIBBON OF FAST-MOVING CURRENT...

WHICH ACTS AS A KIND OF WALL,

KEEPING THE WARM
EQUATORIAL WATERS HERE...

FROM MIXING WITH THE COLD
ARCTIC WATERS ALONG HERE.

SO, NATURALLY, THE FARTHER
EAST THIS DIVIDING WALL MOVES,

THE COLDER THE ATLANTIC COAST
OF NORTH AMERICA BECOMES.

WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT
I BELIEVE HAPPENED.

SOMETHING IN THIS AREA HERE
HAS CAUSED A SLIGHT DIVERSION...

OF THE DIRECTION
OF THE CURRENTS.

THE DIVERSION INCREASES AS IT MOVES
NORTHWARD, PRODUCING THE FREAK WEATHER.

THEN OUR MISSION IS
TO LOCATE THE CAUSE OF

THIS DIVERSION AND
CORRECT IT, IF POSSIBLE.

EXACTLY. WE'RE ENTERING
THE CRITICAL AREA NOW.

I PROPOSE WE RUN SUBMERGED FOR THE
NIGHT TO TAKE READINGS AT LOWER DEPTHS.

AYE, SIR. CHIP, DIVE
THE BOAT. AYE, AYE, SIR.

MAKE YOUR DEPTH 200
FEET AND KEEP 'ER STEADY.

RIG FOR DEEP SUBMERGENCE.

NAVIGATION REPORTS FOR
THE LOG, SIR. AH, THANKS, CHIEF.

[Hissing]

SOUND THE FIRE ALARM!
ON THE DOUBLE! YES, SIR!

[Klaxon Sounding]
[Alarm Bell Ringing]

[Grunting]

KOWALSKI, GET HIM TO SICK BAY.

AND BREAK OUT
AN INHALATOR! FAST!

THIS IS THE CAPTAIN.
SURFACE THE BOAT.

AND INSTRUCT ENGINEERING TO
CLEAR ALL VENTILATORS OF SMOKE.

[Alarm Bell Continues Ringing]

CHIP, ALL CLEAR?

WHAT DO YOU MAKE
OF THIS, CAPTAIN?

DOESN'T MAKE THINGS VERY
PLEASANT UP THERE, DOES IT?

DOWN SCOPE.

CRACK THE DECK HATCH AS SOON AS
WE APPROACH THE SURFACE. AYE, AYE, SIR.

[Coughs] ANY EXPLANATION FOR...

[Coughs] HOW THAT
FIRE STARTED, LEE?

IT WAS PROBABLY SOME
KIND OF CHEMICAL REACTION.

YOU MUST HAVE GOTTEN SOMETHING
FROM THE LAB IN YOUR CLOTHES,

WHICH IGNITED BY
SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION.

THAT DOESN'T SOUND VERY LIKELY.
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN IT.

I DON'T THINK YOU SHOULD GO UP ON
DECK, ADMIRAL. DOC SAYS I NEED FRESH AIR.

I DON'T KNOW A
BETTER WAY TO GET IT.

[Sighs] EXCUSE ME, SIR.
DID YOU SAY FRESH AIR?

WE'VE GOT TONS OF DEAD
FISH UP THERE. DEAD FISH?

YEAH. THEY WERE ON THE DECK WHEN WE
SURFACED. I SAW THEM THROUGH THE SCOPE.

THEY'RE FLOATING
ALL OVER THE WATER.

CURLEY, GET ONE AND BRING IT
DOWN HERE. DOWN HERE, ADMIRAL?

ONE DEAD FISH. AYE, AYE, SIR.

BRING IT TO THE LAB. I'LL
BE THERE. AYE, AYE, SIR.

[Clicking]

RADIATION? ENOUGH TO
KILL EVERY FISH IN THE AREA.

I'M BEGINNING TO SEE WHAT OUR GREAT
UNDERWATER UPHEAVAL MUST HAVE BEEN.

YOU DON'T MEAN A
NUCLEAR EXPLOSION.

I'M NOT SURE YET.

WHERE ARE YOUR WATER
SAMPLES? RIGHT HERE.

[Clicking]

I SEE NOTHING IN YOUR REPORT
ABOUT RADIOACTIVITY, DOCTOR.

WELL, UH, I DIDN'T TEST FOR IT.

THE IDEA NEVER OCCURRED TO ME.

NEVER OCCURRED TO YOU?

WHAT KIND OF SCIENTIST ARE YOU? HOW
COULD YOU MAKE SUCH AN IDIOTIC BLUNDER?

IT'S INEXCUSABLE.

MAY I REMIND YOU, ADMIRAL,
I'M A GUEST AND A COLLEAGUE,

NOT AN EMPLOYEE.

SORRY, DOCTOR. OF
COURSE YOU'RE RIGHT.

THE MAIN THING NOW IS
TO TRACE THIS RADIATION

TO ITS SOURCE. I'LL GET
STARTED RIGHT AWAY.

DOCTOR, ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

SUBMARINE DUTY DOESN'T
AGREE WITH SOME PEOPLE.

NO. NO, I'M FINE. I'M
JUST A LITTLE TIRED.

WELL, DON'T WORK TOO LONG.

[Clicking On Speaker]

THE COUNT'S SLOWING
DOWN AGAIN. [Clicking Continues]

TRY HER THIS WAY.

TWO DEGREES LEFT RUDDER.

COME TO COURSE 1-5-4, ABSOLUTE.

[Clicking Speeds Up]

- STEADY AS SHE GOES.
- STEADY AS SHE GOES, SIR.

[Man On Speaker]
CAPTAIN, THIS IS LOOKOUT.

SMALL OBJECT BEARING 0-7-1,
RELATIVE. RANGE: 1,500 YARDS.

RADAR'S BEEN READING
THE SAME THING.

CAN YOU MAKE IT OUT? YES, SIR.

SMALL MARKER BUOY. SEEMS
TO HAVE A WHIP ANTENNA ON TOP.

NO IDENTIFICATION NUMBER.

VERY WELL. KEEP IT
UNDER OBSERVATION.

UP SCOPE.

WHIP ANTENNA.

LET'S HAVE A CLOSER LOOK.

YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE

YOU TO STAY IN THE WATER
MORE THAN 10 MINUTES.

IF THE COUNTER GOES PAST
THE RED LINE, RETURN AT ONCE.

JUST FOLLOW THE CHAIN DOWN AND
REPORT WHAT YOU FIND. AYE, AYE, SIR.

[Geiger Counter Clicking]

IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.
WELL, IT'S TRUE, SIR.

THAT CABLE GOES RIGHT STRAIGHT
DOWN INTO THE OCEAN FLOOR.

AND THE RADIATION SEEMS
TO COME FROM THAT SPOT?

IT SURE DOES, CAPTAIN. I
CHECKED WITH THE COUNTER.

[Morton On Speaker] CAPTAIN, SPARKS IS
PICKING UP A SIGNAL... AN ELECTRONIC BEAM.

OF COURSE!

THAT EXPLAINS THE ANTENNA.

HAS HE GOT A FIX ON IT? THE DIRECTIONAL
FINDER'S WORKING ON IT RIGHT NOW, SIR.

I WANT A REPORT THE
INSTANT YOU LOCATE IT.

THERE'S THE SOURCE
OF THE SIGNAL.

COINCIDES EXACTLY
WITH RADAR'S REPORT.

THERE'S AN ISLAND LOCATED
THERE. THERE'S NO NAME THOUGH.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF UNINHABITED
ISLANDS IN THIS AREA, LEE.

LET'S GET UNDER WAY. I WANT
TO TAKE A LOOK AT THIS PLACE.

WHAT ABOUT THE MARKER
BUOY? WE CAN'T LEAVE IT.

WE'LL JUST GO CLOSE ENOUGH TO PUT A
PARTY ASHORE, THEN LAY BACK HERE AGAIN.

ADMIRAL NELSON, I
PROTEST. WE'RE WASTING

TIME. THIS HAS NOTHING
TO DO WITH OUR PROJECT.

I DON'T AGREE. LEE, GET
YOUR MEN READY. AYE, SIR.

NOBODY'S HOME, CAPTAIN.

I DON'T KNOW. THE
SIGNAL COMES FROM HERE.

THERE MUST BE SOME
SORT OF INSTALLATION.

THERE'S SOMETHING
OVER THERE, SKIPPER.

[Crane] LOOKS LIKE A SHOT TOWER.

THERE ARE NO BUILDINGS AROUND.

WHAT ABOUT IN THERE?

COME ON, LET'S SEE.
NO, NOW, WAIT A MINUTE.

SEAGULL TO ALBATROSS.
SEAGULL TO ALBATROSS.

COME IN, ALBATROSS. THIS IS
ALBATROSS. GO AHEAD, SEAGULL.

WE'RE ON SHORE. NO
SIGN OF LIFE. NO PATROLS.

WE SPOTTED WHAT COULD BE A
NUCLEAR SHOT TOWER, BUT I'M NOT SURE.

THERE ARE SOME CAVES
AROUND HERE TOO.

I'M STILL INVESTIGATING. I'LL MAKE
A REPORT AGAIN. SEAGULL OUT.

FOLLOW ME. YES, SIR.

[Man On Speaker] STOP RIGHT
WHERE YOU ARE! YOU'RE COVERED.

DROP YOUR WEAPONS TO THE GROUND.

DROP IT!

[Gunshot]

HE'S BEEN SHOT! HE NEEDS HELP!

[Man On Speaker]
HE NEEDS NOTHING.

STOP!

YOU AND YOUR PARTY WILL WALK
STRAIGHT AHEAD, HANDS IN THE AIR.

MOVE!

REPORT ANY FURTHER CHANGE
IN YOUR READING AT ONCE.

THERE MUST BE NO
HOLD IN THIS COUNTDOWN.

[Man Shouts, Indistinct]

COMMANDER LEE CRANE, CAPTAIN
OF THE SUBMARINE SEAVIEW?

AND WHO ARE YOU?

THE NAME IS FREDERICK
CREGAR. UNFORTUNATELY,

YOU DROPPED IN AT
AN AWKWARD MOMENT.

AWKWARD? FOR YOU OR FOR ME?

[Man On Radio] ONE HOUR
AND 40 MINUTES TO ZERO.

I SEE YOU'RE CURIOUS
ABOUT THE COUNTDOWN.

GOOD. GOOD. I LIKE A MAN
WITH A HEALTHY CURIOSITY.

WHAT KIND OF A
COUNTDOWN IS THIS?

IT'S PART OF A SERIES
OF NUCLEAR TESTS...

DESIGNED TO PRODUCE A WEAPONS
SYSTEM OF UNEQUALED POWER.

THE STRONGER NATIONS...
YOURS, FOR ONE...

FROWN ON SUCH ACTIVITIES
AMONG THEIR LESSER SISTER STATES.

FORTUNATELY, THEY
WON'T KNOW UNTIL TOO LATE.

I WOULDN'T COUNT ON THAT.

OH. ARE YOU THINKING OF THE SEAVIEW
AND WHAT ADMIRAL NELSON KNOWS?

IF THEY DON'T HEAR FROM
US, THEY'LL COME LOOKING,

AND THEY'LL BLAST YOU
RIGHT OFF THE MAP, CREGAR.

MY DEAR COMMANDER, IT SO HAPPENS THAT
AT THIS MOMENT YOUR SUBMARINE IS POISED...

DIRECTLY ABOVE THE NEXT
BOMB WE RE ABOUT TO DETONATE.

IN EXACTLY ONE
HOUR AND 37 MINUTES,

ADMIRAL NELSON AND THE
SEAVIEW WILL SIMPLY CEASE TO EXIST.

SKIPPER, WE GOTTA GET A
WARNING TO THE ADMIRAL.

HOW? THEY TOOK OUR SHORTWAVE.

AND I DON'T SEE MUCH CHANCE
OF BUSTING OUT OF HERE.

DO YOU, CAPTAIN? I'M AFRAID NOT.

ALL WE CAN DO IS
STICK IT OUT AND WAIT.

AFTER ALL, WE'RE NOT
IN SUCH BAD SHAPE.

EXCEPT THIS CAVE
IS FULL OF BUGS.

HOPE YOU GUYS DON'T MIND.

NOT ME, CAPTAIN. NOTHING WRONG
WITH BUGS IF YOU LEAVE 'EM ALONE.

YEAH, THAT'S MY MOTTO. STAY AS
FAR AWAY FROM THEM AS POSSIBLE.

YOU AND ME BOTH, KOWALSKI.

WELL, WE MIGHT AS
WELL MAKE OURSELVES

COMFORTABLE. COULD BE
HERE A LONG, LONG TIME.

YEAH. I JUST HOPE THEY
DON'T FORGET TO FEED US.

♪♪ [Whistling]

♪♪ [Continues]

KNOCK OFF THE WHISTLING, CURLEY.
I WANNA GET SOME SLEEP. YES, SIR.

[Whispering] COME ON!

SECTOR FOUR CLEAR.
PROCEEDING TO SECTOR FIVE. OUT.

[Groans]

SEAGULL TO ALBATROSS. COME IN.

YES, THIS IS ALBATROSS.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

SPARKS, GET ME THE ADMIRAL.
HE'S WAITING RIGHT HERE.

ADMIRAL, LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY.

YOU'VE GOT LESS THAN AN HOUR.
GET AWAY FROM THAT MARKER BUOY.

THAT HOLE IN THE OCEAN FLOOR
CONTAINS A NUCLEAR BOMB,

AND YOU'RE SITTING RIGHT ON IT.

WE'LL GET UNDER WAY AT ONCE.
WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF STOPPING IT?

VERY GOOD, IF YOU MAKE
STRAIGHT FOR THE ISLAND...

WITH SEVERAL MISSILES
PREPARED TO FIRE.

THEY'LL STOP THE COUNTDOWN
WHEN THEY SEE THEY'RE COVERED.

REPORT THIS TO WASHINGTON. I'LL
GET US MOVING. I THINK NOT, ADMIRAL.

SOMEONE WAS CARELESS ENOUGH TO
LEAVE A SMALL ARMS LOCKER UNATTENDED.

I APPRECIATE THE FAVOR.

THAT SHOULD TAKE CARE
OF ANY RADIO MESSAGES.

THE SEAVIEW WILL
GO NOWHERE, ADMIRAL,

UNTIL THE BOMB GOES OFF.

ADMIRAL, OUT OF MY WAY.

MOVE. MOVE!

MOVE.

GET OUT. GET OUT!

IT'S NO USE NOW.

BEFORE YOU REPAIR THE HELM,
IT'LL BE TOO LATE FOR ALL OF YOU.

BUT YOU'LL GO WITH US, MELTON.
IT DOESN'T MATTER IN THE LEAST.

YOU'RE INSANE.

THAT DOESN'T MATTER EITHER.

[Gunshot]

[Choking, Groaning]
HE'S BEEN HIT!

GET HIM TO SICK BAY!

[Groaning Continues]

ENGINEERING, GET A REPAIR PARTY ON THAT
HELM MECHANISM. WE GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE.

CAN THE MEN AFT HANDLE THE AUXILIARY
STEERING? YES, SIR, NO PROBLEM.

GET A DETAIL ON THE AUXILIARY
STEERING AND STAND BY TO GET UNDER WAY.

LET'S GET MOVING!

NO, NO! LET ME GO!

[Grunting]

HOW IS HE? IT'S JUST A CREASE,
SIR. BUT HE'S OUT OF HIS HEAD.

NO! NO. WHAT'S THIS?

I DON'T KNOW, SIR. WE NOTICED THIS
BANDAGE WHEN WE RIPPED OFF HIS SHIRT.

NO!

[Exhales] ADRENALINE.

[Beeping]

[Beeping Continues]
SO THAT'S IT.

WE'RE AT FLANK SPEED,
SIR. WHAT'S THAT?

THIS MAN HAS BEEN A
WALKING RECEIVING SET.

I SAW AN EXPERIMENT LIKE THIS
ONCE BEFORE. LISTEN. [Beeping Continues]

IT WORKS LIKE A HEART
PACEMAKER, ONLY IT

TRANSMITS INFORMATION
DIRECTLY TO THE BRAIN.

WITH THIS ON HIM, MELTON
WAS LITTLE MORE THAN A ROBOT.

WHAT'S THAT SIGNAL MEAN?
TAKE THIS TO THE RECORDER.

TAKE THE NEXT BEEP AND SLOW IT
DOWN. IT'S A BURST TRANSMISSION.

WAIT, WAIT, WAIT.

WAIT. NO, LET HIM ALONE.

ADMIRAL NELSON.

WHERE AM I?

WHAT HAPPENED?
YOU'LL BE ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT? NO.

NOT ALL RIGHT. NEVER ALL RIGHT.

I'M BEGINNING TO REMEMBER.

THERE WAS A
PLANE... A JET PILOT.

I KILLED HIM. AND I
TRIED TO KILL YOU.

NO. NO, YOU DIDN'T.

YOU'RE NO MORE GUILTY
OF MURDER THAN A GUN IS.

THE GUILT BELONGS TO THE
MAN WHO PULLED THE TRIGGER.

[Sighs]

ADMIRAL, LISTEN TO THIS.

[Cregar] YOU HAVE
FAILED ME, DOCTOR.

RADAR INDICATES THE SUBMARINE
HAS NOT BEEN COMPLETELY DISABLED.

NOW YOUR JOB IS
EVEN MORE DIFFICULT.

DELIVER NELSON TO MY CENTRAL
CONTROL. THIS IS IMPERATIVE.

DELIVER NELSON TO ME AT ONCE.

THE MAN WHO PULLED THE TRIGGER.

OH, IF WE COULD ONLY
REACH HIM. WE CAN.

THOSE INSTRUCTIONS WERE
MEANT FOR YOUR BRAIN.

WE'LL CARRY THEM OUT.

[Radio: Man #1] NO SIGN OF THE ESCAPED
PRISONERS IN SECTORS ONE THROUGH SIX.

[Radio: Man #2] RETRACE
AND KEEP SEARCHING.

[Kowalski] CAPTAIN!

THAT'S DR. MELTON WITH HIM.

JUST A FEW MORE STEPS
AND I'LL PICK HIM OFF.

NO. NO?

YOU GONNA LET HIM
TAKE THE ADMIRAL?

HE'S NOT TAKING THE
ADMIRAL. THINK ABOUT IT.

WHAT CHANCE WOULD MELTON HAVE...

TAKING THE ADMIRAL OFF THE
SEAVIEW PAST THE WHOLE CREW...

IF HE DIDN'T WANNA GO?

COME ON. BE QUIET.

I REALLY MUST
APOLOGIZE, ADMIRAL.

THIS MEETING WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN
NECESSARY IF YOUR CAPTAIN HADN'T ESCAPED.

AH. CRANE GOT
AWAY, DID HE? GOOD.

WELL, HE WON'T GET OFF
THE ISLAND, OF COURSE.

NEITHER WILL YOU NOW. [Man On Radio]
THIRTY MINUTES TO ZERO AND COUNTING.

YOU SEE, I AM RELUCTANT TO
PUT A HOLD ON OUR COUNTDOWN.

YOU HAVE, UH, VERY
SOPHISTICATED EQUIPMENT.

THANK YOU. WE USE IT WELL.

HOWEVER, THERE IS ONE MORE SHOT
AFTER THIS ONE, THE CLIMAX TO OUR SERIES.

ONE MORE. WHERE'S THE BOMB?

ON A PLATFORM RIGHT HERE ON THIS
ISLAND, READY FOR IMMEDIATE ACTIVATION.

THIS SPECTACULAR BURST IS
DESIGNED TO SHOW THE WORLD...

THAT WE HAVE JOINED
THE NUCLEAR CLUB.

ARE THERE ANY
MORE QUESTIONS, SIR?

NO, I THINK NOT.

WELL, MR. CREGAR?

DOCTOR, SHOOT HIM.

DR. MELTON, YOU HAVE ORDERS.

I SAID FOR YOU TO SHOOT NELSON.

THE BULLETS IN THIS GUN
BELONG TO YOU, MR. CREGAR.

ALL RIGHT, UP! UP!

I'LL TAKE THAT, DOCTOR.

LEE, CLEAR THESE
MEN OUT OF HERE.

ALL RIGHT, BACK FROM THERE.

COME ON! MOVE IT!

ADMIRAL, YOU'RE
WASTING YOUR TIME.

THE COUNTDOWN WILL CONTINUE UNLESS
A PROPER CODE SEQUENCE INTERRUPTS IT.

GET HIM OUT. DOCTOR,
YOU STAY WITH ME.

IS HE TELLING THE TRUTH?

I'M AFRAID SO.

WE CAN'T STOP IT.

BUT LOOK HERE.

YOU SEE THE WAY IT'S SET
UP? THE SAME SYSTEM WE USE.

EXACTLY. CONVENTIONAL TELEMETRY.

A SERIES OF RELAYS ACTIVATING
THE FIRING MECHANISM.

THEN WE CAN'T ABORT
IT WITHOUT THE CODE.

NO.

BUT WE CAN ACTIVATE THE TOWER
BOMB TO GO OFF AT THE SAME TIME.

THE WHOLE SYSTEM WAS
DESIGNED TO HANDLE BOTH DEVICES.

ONE AT A TIME, NORMALLY.

THEY'D DISCOVER IT,
STOP THE COUNTDOWN.

LET THEM. BUT I DOUBT IT.

YOU SEE THIS? THE SAME
CONTROLS SERVE BOTH CIRCUITS.

THEY'D GET NO SIGNAL FROM
THEIR SERVOMECHANISMS...

IF WE PATCH THIS SECOND GROUP
IN RIGHT ALONG WITH THE FIRST.

I HOPE YOU'RE RIGHT. WE ONLY
HAVE A LITTLE WHILE TO WONDER.

GUARDS COMING DOWN THE PASSAGE.

SOON YOU'LL BE SURROUNDED. YOU
HAVE NO HOPE OF GETTING OFF THIS ISLAND.

I ADVISE YOU TO STOP THE COUNTDOWN
IMMEDIATELY. NOT A CHANCE, ADMIRAL.

GET OUT OF HERE!
CURLEY, TAKE OFF!

YES, SIR.

FOLLOW THEM! FOLLOW THEM!

CHIP, TAKE HER DOWN AND GET
OUT OF HERE AT FLANK SPEED.

AYE, SIR.

CLEAR THE DECKS.
PREPARE TO DIVE.

ALL AHEAD FLANK.

THANK HEAVENS THEY ADAPTED MOST
OF THEIR INSTRUMENTATION FROM OURS.

WILL CREGAR STOP THAT COUNTDOWN?

WE'LL KNOW IN A
MATTER OF SECONDS.

WE'RE FAR ENOUGH FROM
THE ISLAND NOW TO... [Explosion]

IT CHECKS OUT. WATER TEMPERATURE,
DENSITY AND SALINITY CONSTANT.

THE GULF STREAM IS
JUST WHERE IT SHOULD BE.

COULD THAT LAST NUCLEAR
EXPLOSION POSSIBLY HAVE DONE IT?

WHY NOT? I'M CONVINCED
IT WAS THE ILLEGAL TEST

SERIES THAT ALTERED
IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

[Knocking] COME.

GOOD NEWS, ADMIRAL. WE ARRIVE
IN PENSACOLA IN TWO HOURS.

I JUST GOT THE WEATHER
REPORT... FAIR AND WARMER.
