Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964–1968): Season 1, Episode 24 - The Saboteur - full transcript

Crane is brainwashed to sabotage an important national defense mission which is being monitored by the national intelligence agency.

[Electricity Crackling]

[Man] YOUR NAME?

WE'RE ASKING YOUR NAME.

LEE CRANE.

RANK?

[Exhales] WE'VE
BEEN OVER ALL THIS.

YES, AND WE WILL
CONTINUE TO GO OVER IT...

UNTIL IT IS ENTIRELY CORRECT.

YOU HAVE SWORN ALLEGIANCE
TO WHAT NATIONAL GOVERNMENT?

THE UNITED STATES OF...

YOU HAVE SWORN ALLEGIANCE
TO WHAT NATIONAL GOVERNMENT?



THE PEOPLE'S
REPUBLIC. VERY GOOD.

NOW TELL US, WHERE WERE YOU
THIS WEEKEND? WITH MY MOTHER.

BUT IF YOU'RE SEEING YOUR MOTHER,
HOW CAN YOU BE HERE WITH US?

I DON'T KNOW. I... I...

ARE YOU HERE WITH US NOW?

NO. I'M WITH MY MOTHER.

MUCH BETTER.

AND WHY DID YOU MAKE THIS SUDDEN
TRIP TO VISIT YOUR MOTHER, COMMANDER?

SHE'S ILL. YES.

AND HOW IS SHE GETTING
ALONG? SHE'S BETTER.

YOU ARE NOW ABOARD SEAVIEW.

IN A CONVERSATION WITH
YOUR FELLOW OFFICERS,

THE SUBJECT OF THE
PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC COMES UP.

WHAT IS YOUR ATTITUDE? I OWE
ALLEGIANCE TO THE PEOPLE'S REPUB...



[Gasping] I HATE THE
PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC!

IT'S DIFFICULT FOR
ME TO REMEMBER!

YOU MUST CONCENTRATE, COMMANDER.

YOU HAVE A GREAT DEAL YET TO
LEARN. DO YOU REMEMBER YOUR OATH?

I AM A SWORN AGENT OF
THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC,

DEDICATED TO PERFORMING
MY SACRED DUTY,

WHATEVER THE COST.

VERY GOOD, COMMANDER. VERY GOOD.

NOW TELL ME. WHO'S
YOUR BEST FRIEND?

HARRIMAN NELSON.

ADMIRAL HARRIMAN NELSON.

WOULD YOU KILL
HIM IF SO ORDERED?

I WOULD.

COMMANDER, ON A TABLE
ALONGSIDE YOU, THERE IS A GUN.

WE WANT YOU TO PICK IT UP.

YOU ARE FAMILIAR
WITH THIS WEAPON?

I AM. IT'S A SERVICE-TYPE .45.

GOOD. WE RECENTLY HAD THE GOOD
FORTUNE TO CAPTURE ADMIRAL NELSON.

WE ARE BRINGING HIM HERE.

SO THAT YOU MAY PROVE YOUR UNSWERVING
LOYALTY TO THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC,

YOU HAVE BEEN ACCORDED
THE PRIVILEGE OF KILLING HIM.

HE WILL BE HERE MOMENTARILY.

GET READY.

COMMANDER,

WE ORDER YOU TO
KILL ADMIRAL NELSON.

HE IS TO THE RIGHT OF YOU NOW.

[Man] VOYAGE TO THE
BOTTOM OF THE SEA.

STARRING RICHARD BASEHART,

DAVID HEDISON.

VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.

ALL RIGHT. TAKE IT UP TILL IT'S FREE,
AND THEN WE'LL SWING IT INTO POSITION.

ADMIRAL NELSON, I'M FORESTER,
INTELLIGENCE DIVISION.

I'LL BE IN CHARGE OF
SECURITY ON THIS MISSION.

I'VE BEEN EXPECTING
YOU. THANKS, CHIP.

UH, COULD WE, UH, GET A FEW OF
THESE MARINES OUT FROM UNDERFOOT...

SO WE CAN GET SOME
WORK DONE AROUND HERE?

[Chuckles] I THINK WE MIGHT MANAGE
THAT, BUT THEY WON'T GO FAR.

IS ALL THAT REALLY
NECESSARY ON A SUBMARINE?

WE HAVE NO PLACE TO GO, REMEMBER?
AND ONCE UNDER WAY, NO VISITORS.

ADMIRAL, I INTEND TO MOUNT THE
TIGHTEST SECURITY I CAN DEVISE...

AND THEN DOUBLE IT.

FROM ALL THEY'VE TOLD
ME ABOUT THOSE THINGS...

WELL, I JUST DON'T WANT
ANYTHING TO HAPPEN TO THEM.

THAT'S THE NEAREST WE CAN PROBABLY
COME TO AN ULTIMATE WEAPON...

SHORT OF A DOOMSDAY MACHINE.

THEY DON'T LOOK LIKE MUCH.

THAT'S PART OF THEIR
BEAUTY... THEIR SIMPLICITY.

EACH ONE IS A COMPLETE,
SELF-CONTAINED,

NUCLEAR-ARMED
INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILE.

I'M JUST GLAD THEY'RE OURS.

NOW, ADMIRAL, IF YOU'LL JUST SUPPLY
ME WITH A SET OF PLANS FOR THE SHIP...

AND PUT ME IN TOUCH WITH YOUR
CAPTAIN, I'LL WORK OUT THE DETAILS.

UH, CAPTAIN CRANE DOESN'T
HAPPEN TO BE ABOARD AT THE MOMENT,

BUT, AS SOON AS HE IS, I'LL HAVE HIM GET IN
TOUCH WITH YOU AND GIVE YOU THE PLANS.

HE'LL FIND ME, ALL RIGHT.

[Man] AND NOW, COMMANDER,
WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU...

HOW YOU SHALL SERVE
THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC.

TO HELP YOU, WE HAVE FASHIONED
SEVERAL INTERESTING DEVICES.

DO YOU RECOGNIZE
THE KIT ON THAT TABLE?

YES. IT'S MY SHAVING KIT.

SO IT WOULD SEEM.
PICK UP THE KIT.

FEEL THE RIGHT-REAR CORNER.

YOU WILL NOTICE A RAISED STITCH.

THAT, IN FACT, IS
A SPRING LATCH.

YES, I FEEL IT. NOW
PRESS THE LATCH.

[Clicks]

THE WEAPON IS LOADED
WITH CURARE-TIPPED BULLETS.

A HIT ANYWHERE IN THE
BODY MEANS INSTANT DEATH.

NOW RETURN THE WEAPON.

UNZIP THE KIT, BUT
DO NOT OPEN IT.

NOW SLIDE YOUR HAND IN PARTWAY.

STOP.

NOW RELEASE THE HAIR-FINE MONOFILAMENT
ATTACHED FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.

NOW PLEASE OPEN THE KIT.

EXAMINE THE SHAVING CREAM.

WHAT DOES IT SMELL LIKE?

SMELLS LIKE CORDITE...
OR GUNPOWDER.

IT IS A PLASTIC EXPLOSIVE 54 TIMES
MORE POWERFUL THAN NITROGLYCERIN.

NOW REMOVE THE SAFETY RAZOR.

TWIST THE ADJUSTING WHEEL
ON THE BOTTOM AND PULL IT OUT.

THE WHEEL IS THE DETONATOR
CAP FOR THE PLASTIC EXPLOSIVES.

THE WIRE IS CONNECTED TO THE TOP OF
THE RAZOR WHICH IS A 60-SECOND TIMER.

THE SHANK CONTAINS A MERCURY
BATTERY WHICH SPARKS THE DETONATOR.

REMOVE THE BAR OF
SOAP AND LOOK INTO IT.

IT ENCASES AN OPTICALLY
PRECISE MICROREADER.

IN LIKE MANNER,
EVERYTHING IN THE CASE...

PERFORMS A FUNCTION
BEYOND THE EXPECTED.

THE NAIL FILE IS
MAGNA-CARBON STEEL...

CAPABLE OF CUTTING THROUGH
A JAIL-CELL BAR IN MINUTES.

NOW NOTICE THE COMB.

THAT COMB IS FASHIONED
OF A TRITANIUM-NICKEL ALLOY...

THAT HAS BEEN HIGHLY MAGNETIZED.

ITS FUNCTION WILL BE EXPLAINED TO
YOU AS YOU RETURN TO YOUR BASE.

NOW CLOSE THE KIT.

STOP. NOW REFASTEN
THE MONOFILAMENT.

IF YOU EVER FIND IT BROKEN, YOU
WILL KNOW YOU'RE UNDER SUSPICION.

NOW ZIP YOUR CASE.

LET US CAUTION YOU...

THAT YOUR EVERY
MOVE WILL BE WATCHED.

ABOARD SEAVIEW, YOU WILL BE
UNDER CONSTANT SURVEILLANCE...

BY AN AGENT OF THE
PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC.

YOU WILL NEVER SEE THIS
PERSON, BUT HE IS YOUR CONTACT.

AND FROM HIM, YOU WILL
RECEIVE FURTHER ORDERS.

IN THE EVENT THAT YOU FAIL, HIS
INSTRUCTIONS ARE TO DESTROY SEAVIEW.

FROM TIME TO TIME, A BOOK OF MATCHES
IDENTICAL TO THOSE WILL REACH YOU.

THEY WILL BE FROM YOUR CONTACT.

THE MATCHES WILL CARRY A
NEARLY INVISIBLE MICRODOT...

BENEATH THE STRIKING
SURFACE WITH INSTRUCTIONS.

WHAT'S THE MARK
ON THESE MATCHES?

AN ANCIENT TRIGRAM...

THE SYMBOL THROUGH THE AGES...

FOR "PEACE."

HERE ARE YOUR RESTRICTED AREAS. THE
MISSILE ROOM, THE AFT TORPEDO ROOM...

AND ANY OTHER AREA
STORING GEAR FOR THIS MISSION.

MOUNT A 24-HOUR WATCH AT
THE DOORS TO THOSE ROOMS,

AND NO ONE IS TO ENTER WHO
ISN'T LISTED AS CLASS "A" SECURITY...

OR WHO HAS SOMEONE WITH
THAT CLASSIFICATION WITH THEM.

LOG THEM IN AND OUT. KEEP A
CLIPBOARD AT EVERY SENTRY POST.

AND NO ONE ON THIS SHIP HAS AUTHORITY
TO COUNTERMAND THESE ORDERS.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, YOU
SHOOT 'EM ALONG TO ME. RIGHT?

YES, SIR. OKAY.

FORESTER, DR. ERNST ULLMAN.

AH, THE FATHER OF
OUR ULTIMATE WEAPON.

AH. THAT'S NEWSPAPER TALK. THERE
CAN'T BE ONE FATHER, 500 MOTHERS.

COFFEE, DOCTOR? NO. NO, THANKS.

FORESTER WILL CHECK
YOUR BAGS, DOCTOR,

AND CHIEF JONES WILL
SHOW YOU TO YOUR CABIN.

I'LL CHECK WITH YOU AS
SOON AS WE GET UNDER WAY.

I HOPE THAT WILL BE
IMMEDIATELY, ADMIRAL.

IT'S IMPORTANT THAT THE PRESIDENT
ANNOUNCES THE EXISTENCE OF THESE WEAPONS...

BEFORE THE END OF THE CONFERENCES
CURRENTLY UNDER WAY IN PARIS.

I UNDERSTAND, DOCTOR.

WE'LL WEIGH ANCHOR AS SOON
AS POSSIBLE, I ASSURE YOU.

IS, UH, THIS NECESSARY FOR ME?

OH, WELL, IT'S NECESSARY,
DOCTOR, BUT IT'S NOT PERSONAL.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHERE
HE'D BE? NO, SIR, NOT A CLUE.

I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT. A MAN LIKE
LEE JUST DOESN'T FAIL TO REPORT...

WITHOUT SOME WORD,
ESPECIALLY AT A TIME LIKE THIS.

WHEN, UH... WHEN
DID YOU SEE HIM LAST?

FRIDAY NIGHT. WE HAD
DINNER TOGETHER...

AND AGREED TO MEET AT THE FIRST TEE AT
THE COUNTRY CLUB AT 9:00 THE NEXT MORNING.

HE DIDN'T SHOW UP. I CALLED THE
APARTMENT, BUT HE DIDN'T ANSWER.

I CAN'T DELAY MUCH LONGER. WE'LL HAVE
TO GET UNDER WAY WITHOUT HIM UNLESS...

[Man On Speaker] ADMIRAL NELSON.
THE CAPTAIN JUST CAME ABOARD.

THE MARINE GUARD IS ESCORTING
HIM THROUGH SECURITY CHECK...

IN THE OBSERVATION NOSE.

GO DOWN TO THE OBSERVATION NOSE AND
TELL HIM TO GET UNDER WAY SOON AS POSSIBLE.

AND, CHIP, TELL HIM I WANT
TO SEE HIM IN MY CABIN...

AS SOON AS WE CLEAR THE HARBOR.

AYE, SIR.

HERE. I'LL GET
THIS OPEN FOR YOU.

I'D LIKE TO GET ON WITH MY
DUTIES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

I UNDERSTAND, CAPTAIN. I'LL ONLY
KEEP YOU ANOTHER MINUTE OR TWO.

THANK YOU.

GLAD TO SEE YOU, SKIPPER. ADMIRAL WANTS
YOU TO GET UNDER WAY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

RIGHT. WELL, IF I HAVE YOUR PERMISSION
TO COME ABOARD NOW, MR. FORESTER,

I'D LIKE TO GET ON
WITH IT. [Chuckles]

I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO
TAKE A SEA VOYAGE. LET'S GO.

RIGHT. CHIP, SET A
SPECIAL SEA DETAIL TOPSIDE.

SINGLE UP FORE AND AFT AND ALERT
ENGINEERING TO WARM UP REACTORS.

AYE, AYE, SIR. SHALL I HAVE A CREW
MEMBER CARRY YOUR GEAR TO THE CABIN?

YEAH, FINE. THAT'LL BE FINE.

[Knocking] YES.

CHIP SAID YOU WANTED TO SEE ME
AS SOON AS WE CLEARED THE HARBOR.

I'VE BEEN WANTING TO
SEE YOU FOR THE LAST

COUPLE OF DAYS. WHERE
THE DEVIL HAVE YOU BEEN?

WITH MY MOTHER. YOUR MOTHER?

WHEN I GOT HOME FRIDAY
NIGHT AFTER DINNER

WITH CHIP, I FOUND A
TELEGRAM WAITING FOR ME.

MY MOTHER HAD BEEN
TAKEN TO A HOSPITAL.

I TRIED TO CALL CHIP,
BUT HE WASN'T HOME YET.

I WENT RIGHT OUT TO THE AIRPORT
AND, UH, TOOK THE FIRST PLANE OUT.

MM. IS SHE ALL RIGHT?

SHE'S MUCH BETTER,
THANK YOU. LEE.

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

[Exhales] YES, SIR. I'M
A LITTLE TIRED MAYBE.

I, UH...

I'VE BEEN ON AN AIRPLANE OR IN THE
HOSPITAL FOR THE LAST THREE NIGHTS.

MM-HMM. WELL, I'M SORRY
ABOUT YOUR MOTHER,

BUT I DO THINK YOU SHOULD'VE
NOTIFIED ME BEFORE YOU LEFT TOWN,

ESPECIALLY WITH THIS
MISSION COMING UP.

BUT I LEFT WORD FOR YOU
AT THE INSTITUTE OFFICE.

IF YOU DID, I NEVER RECEIVED IT.

NO. I CAN ASSURE YOU I DID,
ADMIRAL. ALL RIGHT, FORGET ABOUT IT.

DR. ULLMAN WANTS TO SEE US IN THE
OBSERVATION NOSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

SIR, A, UH, RADIO
MESSAGE FOR YOU.

OH, THANK YOU, PARKER.

OH, HERE YOU ARE, LEE.
DR. ULLMAN, THIS IS CAPTAIN CRANE.

HOW DO YOU DO? HOW DO YOU DO?

STANDING AT THIS WINDOW, I IMAGINE
MYSELF TO BE THE FIGUREHEAD...

AT THE PROW OF AN
OLD SAILING SHIP...

WITH THE WAVES
BREAKING AT MY FEET.

I CAN HARDLY WAIT TILL WE SUBMERGE.
IT WON'T BE LONG NOW, DOCTOR.

IT'S MIRACULOUS HOW
THAT HUGE AREA OF GLASS...

CAN WITHSTAND THE HUNDREDS
OF TONS OF PRESSURE...

AND THE TEMPERATURE
STRESSES WITHOUT BREAKING.

IT ISN'T GLASS, DOCTOR. IT'S A

HIGH-TENSILE-STRENGTH
PLASTIC DEVELOPED FOR SEAVIEW.

IF IT SHOULD BREAK, I SUPPOSE...

YOU SUPPOSE RIGHT, DOCTOR.

IF WE WERE SUBMERGED AT THE
TIME, THAT'D BE THE END OF SEAVIEW.

LEE, FORESTER HAS A 24-HOUR
SECURITY SCHEDULE LAID OUT.

HE WANTS TO GO
OVER THAT WITH YOU.

AND DR. ULLMAN HAS A
PROBLEM I WANT YOU TO WORK ON.

HE'LL NEED A HIGH-VOLTAGE POWER SOURCE IN
THE MISSILE ROOM ON AN INDEPENDENT CIRCUIT.

WELL, AS CURLEY WOULD SAY,
"NOTHING WE CAN'T HANDLE."

COULD I BORROW A
MATCH, DOCTOR, PLEASE?

THANK YOU.

INCREDIBLE, AREN'T THEY? MM.

SO MUCH DESTRUCTIVE POWER
IN SUCH A SMALL PACKAGE.

IT SHOULD MAKE WAR IMPOSSIBLE.

IT'S HARD TO IMAGINE AN ENEMY
FOOLISH ENOUGH TO ATTACK...

ONCE THE PRESIDENT'S
MADE IT CLEAR...

THAT WE HAVE DOZENS OF
I.C.B.M.'s AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA...

THAT CAN'T FAIL TO RETALIATE.

ARE THEY REALLY THAT FOOLPROOF?

WELL, THEY SHOULD BE
IF WE THREE DO OUR JOBS.

DR. ULLMAN MUST LOCK THE RADIO
CONTROLS TO THE PENTAGON WAR ROOM.

I MUST DETERMINE THE
PRECISE SITES FOR THE SILOS,

AND YOU MUST HOLD THE SEAVIEW
AT EXACTLY THAT POSITION...

LONG ENOUGH FOR
US TO DROP THE SILOS.

- HOW DEEP WILL THEY GO?
- INTO THE TRENCHES... 25,000 FEET OR MORE.

WELL, THAT'S PRETTY
DIFFICULT TO DO, ADMIRAL.

EVERY UNDERWATER CURRENT
AND EVERY TEMPERATURE

CHANGE WILL AFFECT
THE SILO AS IT SINKS.

MM. I'LL HAVE TO COMPENSATE FOR CURRENT,
TEMPERATURE, DIFFERENCE IN SALINITY.

WHEN I GIVE YOU THE
FINAL DROP POSITION,

YOU PUT ON THE BRAKES
AND HOLD HER THERE.

I DON'T THINK THERE'LL
BE TOO MUCH DIFFICULTY.

YOU CAN ALWAYS DOUBLE-CHECK
WITH THE POSITION DEPTH RECORDER...

IN CASE THERE ARE
ANY STRONG CURRENTS.

ALL RIGHT. HERE'S THE POSITION
FOR OUR FIRST DROP, LEE.

WE SHOULD REACH THESE
COORDINATES IN ABOUT 18 HOURS, ADMIRAL.

GOOD.

[Clicking]

MR. FORESTER, MAY I
ASK WHAT YOU'RE DOING?

NOTHING MAGNETIC CAN BE
PERMITTED IN THE STORAGE ROOM.

A MAGNET CAN AFFECT
THE FUSING DEVICE.

ALL RIGHT, MR. MORTON,
LOG YOUR MEN IN...

AND STAY WITH THEM TILL
THEY FINISH THEIR WORK.

THIS CREW IS NOT
USED TO BEING SUSPECT.

SORRY, CAPTAIN,
BUT IT'S NECESSARY.

CHIP, I'LL NEED YOU IN THE
CONTROL ROOM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

YES, SIR.

[Exhales] WHAT'S OUR
PRESENT POSITION, SPENCER?

MR. O'BRIEN. PLOT A COURSE
TO DROP COORDINATES.

YES, SIR.

SPENCER, AS YOU KNOW, THIS
MISSION DEPENDS ALMOST ENTIRELY...

ON THE INERTIAL
NAVIGATION SYSTEM.

IS IT IN PERFECT WORKING
CONDITION? IT, UH, SEEMS TO BE, SIR.

MM, IT FEELS LIKE IT'S,
UH, OVERHEATING A BIT.

SALINITY 34.7.

THE, UH, SALINITY PROFILE IS CONSTANT
THROUGHOUT THE AREA, ADMIRAL.

GOOD. GET OUR POSITION
FROM INERTIAL NAVIGATION...

WHILE I CHECK THE CURRENT METER.

MR. MORTON, WHAT'S OUR POSITION?

YES, SIR. POSITION.

[Screams]

SPENCER! SPENCER!

SOMEONE CUT OFF CIRCUIT 12.

CAPTAIN, GET UP HERE FAST.
THERE'S BEEN AN ACCIDENT.

WHAT HAPPENED? THE INERTIAL
GUIDANCE SYSTEM SHORTED OUT.

ADMIRAL, GET HIS SHIRT OPEN.

WHAT HAPPENED? I DON'T KNOW.

[Doctor] ALL RIGHT. LET'S
GET HIM TO SICK BAY FAST.

ADMIRAL, CAN YOU TELL IF THIS
THING'S BEEN TAMPERED WITH?

YOU MEAN SABOTAGED?
THERE'S NO WAY I COULD TELL,

BUT WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO
SABOTAGE THE INERTIAL NAVIGATOR?

WELL, ISN'T IT IMPORTANT
TO THIS MISSION? IT'S VITAL.

WELL, THEN, CAPTAIN, UH, ARE YOU
SAYING WE CAN'T CARRY OUT THE MISSION?

WELL, WITHOUT THE
INERTIAL SYSTEM,

I CAN'T GUARANTEE THE PINPOINT
NAVIGATION THE ADMIRAL REQUIRES.

THEN, UH, THIS ACCIDENT
HAS ABORTED THE MISSION.

NO. CAPTAIN CRANE ISN'T
SAYING THAT AT ALL. ARE YOU, LEE?

IT MEANS WE'LL HAVE TO COME TO
PERISCOPE DEPTH CONSTANTLY...

TO CHECK OUR
POSITION BY SEXTANT.

AND IF WE RUN INTO BAD WEATHER,
WE WON'T BE ABLE TO NAVIGATE AT ALL.

WE MAY BE DELAYED, BUT THERE'LL
BE NO ABORTING THIS MISSION.

OH, OF COURSE NOT.

YOU SEE, THE SEXTANT WILL ONLY
SHOW US OUR POSITION AT SURFACE.

WHAT'S GOING TO SHOW
IT TO US AT 4,500 FEET?

YOU'LL HAVE TO DROP SEAVIEW
AS IF IT WERE IN A PLUMB LINE, LEE.

[Scoffs] WELL, THE SEAVIEW'S
NOT AN ELEVATOR, ADMIRAL.

YOU'LL HAVE TO MAKE
IT PERFORM LIKE ONE.

I'LL DO MY BEST.

PREPARE TO MAKE
SEXTANT SIGHTING. YES, SIR.

[Crane On Speaker] APPROACHING
DROP COORDINATES, ADMIRAL.

STEADY, MR. O'BRIEN. ALL STOP.

ENGINE ROOM, ALL STOP.

WE'RE IN OUR POSITION, ADMIRAL.

NEGATIVE, CAPTAIN. THE P.D.R.
GRAPH DOES NOT VERIFY OUR POSITION.

WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU, LEE?

[Exhales] I'M SORRY, ADMIRAL.

I'M OFF A DEGREE AND
A HALF ON MY SIGHTING.

ALL AHEAD ONE THIRD.
ALL AHEAD. ONE THIRD.

[Sighs] JUST, UH,

TAKE YOUR TIME, LEE.

THAT'S BETTER. THE TWO BOTTOM
PROFILES ARE BEGINNING TO MATCH UP.

OKAY, LEE. WE'RE AT THE
COORDINATE. TAKE HER DOWN.

PREPARE TO LAUNCH MISSILE
SILO, MR. MORTON. READY, SIR.

READY, DOCTOR? READY, ADMIRAL.

STRAIGHT DOWN. STEADY AS YOU GO.

LEFT RUDDER, TWO DEGREES.

WE'RE DRIFTING.

SHE'S SWINGING BACK.
OH, WE CAN'T BE SURE.

WE'RE DRIFTING AGAIN... RIGHT INTO
THOSE MOUNTAINS. HARD LEFT RUDDER!

YOU'RE WAY OFF, LEE.

[On Speaker] TAKE HER
UP AND TRY IT AGAIN.

IT CAN'T BE DONE,
ADMIRAL. TRY IT AGAIN!

WE'RE GONNA KEEP ON
TRYING UNTIL WE DO IT.

ALL RIGHT. LET'S TRY
AGAIN, MR. O'BRIEN. DOWN.

FLOOD FORWARD AND
AFT BALLAST TANKS.

MONITOR THE DRIFT
METER, MR. O'BRIEN. YES, SIR.

HE'LL MAKE IT THIS TIME.

I'M, UH... I'M SURE.

TWO DEGREES, RIGHT RUDDER.

YOU'RE DRIFTING RIGHT
INTO THAT MOUNTAIN, LEE.

GET OFF MY BACK, ADMIRAL.

[On Speaker] I'M IN
CONTROL OF THE SHIP.

TWO MORE DEGREES, RIGHT RUDDER.

PORT YOUR HELM, LEE!
STAND FAST FOR COLLISION!

DAMAGE CONTROL, REPORT.

[Man On Speaker] STARBOARD
TRIM PLANE TORN AWAY.

LEAK IN FRAME 31.

PROBABLE PROPELLER DAMAGE.

MR. O'BRIEN. SURFACE.

AND RETURN TO BASE FOR REPAIRS.

YES, SIR.

BLOW BALLAST AND SURFACE.

SET A COURSE 0-0-3.

HEAD FOR HOME. BELAY THAT ORDER.

WHERE'S CAPTAIN CRANE? IN
THE OBSERVATION NOSE, SIR.

[Footsteps On Stairs]

IS SOMETHING THE
MATTER WITH YOU, LEE?

NO, NOTHING.

THEN WHY THE ORDER
TO ABORT THIS MISSION?

BECAUSE THIS VESSEL'S IN NO CONDITION
TO CONTINUE AT THE DEPTHS REQUIRED.

HOW DARE YOU?

HOW DARE YOU ABORT THIS
MISSION WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE?

ON WHOSE AUTHORITY? ON
MY AUTHORITY AS CAPTAIN.

THIS MISSION WILL CONTINUE IF I HAVE TO
HANG THIS SHIP TOGETHER WITH SPIT AND GLUE.

AND RISK 125 LIVES? FOR WHAT?

FOR THE FUTURE
PEACE OF THE WORLD.

PEACE OF THE WORLD?

YOU HYPOCRITE!

YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT
THE PEACE OF THE WORLD!

THANKS, ADMIRAL.

I NEEDED SOMETHING TO
BRING ME BACK TO MY SENSES.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT
HAPPENED TO ME.

I JUST... CAME
APART AT THE SEAMS.

WELL, YOU'RE EXHAUSTED, LEE.

ADMIRAL, I'M NOT...

I'M NOT FIT TO CARRY
OUT THIS MISSION.

AND NEITHER IS SEAVIEW.

YOU'RE RIGHT. WE'LL, UH...

WE'LL HEAVE TO FOR 24
HOURS, AND YOU GET SOME REST.

MORTON CAN TAKE
CARE OF THE REPAIRS,

AND I'M SURE THAT DR. ULLMAN CAN DO
SOMETHING ABOUT THE INERTIAL NAVIGATOR.

WELL, GO ON. GO ON, GET TO BED.

NO, I DON'T THINK SO.

ANYTHING YOU MIGHT
REMEMBER COULD BE IMPORTANT.

CHIP, WE'LL SURFACE
FOR REPAIRS. AYE, SIR.

PREPARE TO SURFACE.

HAS CAPTAIN CRANE RECEIVED ANY NEWS
OF HIS MOTHER SINCE WE'VE BEEN AT SEA?

[Parker] NO, SIR.

THAT'S PROBABLY WHY HE'S SO...

SEE IF YOU CAN REACH MRS. CRANE
FOR ME ON THE RADIOPHONE, WILL YOU?

YES, SIR.

FORESTER.

MAY I TALK WITH
YOU FOR A MOMENT?

CERTAINLY, ADMIRAL.

WHY ARE YOU CHECKING
ON CAPTAIN CRANE?

OH, ADMIRAL, MY BUSINESS
IS SUSPECTING PEOPLE.

NOW, I DON'T NEED A
REASON, BUT, UH, IF I DID,

THERE ARE SEVERAL REASONS
FOR CHECKING ON CAPTAIN CRANE.

ONE... HE FAILED TO REPORT
FOR DUTY LAST SUNDAY.

TWO... HE WAS MISSING
FOR THREE DAYS.

AND THREE... HIS FAULTY
MANEUVERING OF THIS SUBMARINE...

CAUSED THIS MISSION
TO BE DELAYED 24 HOURS.

ANY ONE OF WHICH IS REASON
ENOUGH TO CHECK ON CRANE.

FOR WHATEVER IT'S WORTH, I'D
TRUST MY LIFE WITH CAPTAIN CRANE.

[Scoffs] ADMIRAL, THE ONLY ONE
ABOARD THIS SUBMARINE I TRUST IS ME.

AND PROBABLY SOMEBODY'S
CHECKING ON ME.

OH, EXCUSE ME. SIR, THE OPERATOR
REPORTS MRS. CRANE IS IN THE HOSPITAL.

CAN'T RECEIVE CALLS.
OH. THANK YOU, PARKER.

UM... NO, I WON'T
SAY I TOLD YOU SO.

[Morton On Speaker] CAPTAIN,
THE REPAIRS ARE COMPLETED,

AND WE'RE TWO
HOURS FROM DROP TIME.

[Clears Throat] I'LL BE
THERE IN 30 MINUTES.

[Mechanism Whirring]

[Whirring]

[Whirring]

[Whirring] [Footsteps
Approaching]

WE'RE RIGHT ON OUR
COORDINATES, DOCTOR.

INERTIAL NAVIGATOR'S
WORKING PERFECTLY.

ADMIRAL, BEFORE WE DROP THESE
MISSILES TO THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN,

MAY I INDULGE MYSELF
IN A BIT OF SUPERSTITION?

OF COURSE, DOCTOR.

AN ANCIENT SYMBOL
MEANING "PEACE."

LET US HOPE THAT THAT'S WHAT
THESE WEAPONS WILL ENSURE.

MM.

OKAY, LEE, TAKE HER DOWN.

YES, SIR. FLOOD ALL
BALLAST GROUPS, MR. O'BRIEN.

FLOOD ALL BALLAST TANKS.

PREPARE TO LAUNCH THE
MISSILE SILO, MR. MORTON.

MISSILE AWAY, LEE.

[On Speaker] SET COURSE
IMMEDIATELY FOR THE NEXT DROP AREA.

AND A GOOD JOB.

THANKS, ADMIRAL. I'M SETTING
COURSE FOR THE NEXT COORDINATE.

VERY WELL.

YOU SEE, FORESTER? WITH THE INERTIAL
NAVIGATOR WORKING, THERE WERE NO HITCHES.

OKAY, ADMIRAL, I WAS WRONG.

BUT I STILL INTEND TO
MAINTAIN MAXIMUM SECURITY...

UNTIL THE LAST MISSILE SILO'S
ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.

I KNOW, FORESTER.
THAT'S YOUR JOB.

[Whirring]

[Whirring]

[Whirring]

[Whirring]

[Whirring]

[Object Clatters]

[Alarm Beeping]

IT'S THE AFT TORPEDO
ROOM, CAPTAIN.

GET DR. ULLMAN HERE.
ON THE DOUBLE. YES, SIR.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

SOMEBODY WAS IN THIS
ROOM AND SLUGGED ME.

THE GUARD SAYS
NOBODY GOT PAST HIM.

IS THERE ANY OTHER WAY INTO THIS
ROOM BESIDES THROUGH THAT DOOR?

YES, THE, UH, INSPECTION
PASSAGE THROUGH THE HULL IS...

RIGHT OVER HERE.

- WHERE DOES THAT LEAD TO?
- DOWN THE LENGTH OF THE SHIP.

- HOW MANY EXITS ARE THERE?
- ABOUT 20.

- AND WHO KNOWS ABOUT IT?
- EVERYONE DOES.

OH, WELL, THAT'S JUST GREAT.

THAT WASN'T ON THE SEAVIEW
PLANS THAT YOU GAVE ME, CAPTAIN.

WE COULD'VE HAD THAT SEALED
OFF. IT MUST HAVE BEEN ON THE PLANS.

DOCTOR, CAN YOU TELL IF THESE
THINGS HAVE BEEN TAMPERED WITH?

OH, I CAN TRY.

CAPTAIN, I WANT YOU TO PUT YOUR
CREW ON GENERAL QUARTERS...

AND KEEP THEM THERE UNTIL I'VE HAD
TIME TO SEARCH CERTAIN AREAS OF THIS SHIP.

THIS ONE'S BEEN DEACTIVATED.

BUT HOW?

MAGNETICALLY, I GUESS. THE SILO
DOESN'T APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN OPENED.

WELL, ADMIRAL, ARE YOU
STILL WILLING TO VOUCH...

FOR EVERYBODY ABOARD
THIS SUBMARINE? [Scoffs]

DOCTOR, I SUGGEST YOU
REACTIVATE THE SILOS.

WELL, OF COURSE. BUT,
UH, WE MUST ASSUME...

THAT THE SILOS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN
LAUNCHED HAVE ALSO BEEN TAMPERED WITH.

I'M SURE OF IT. CORPORAL.

I WANT YOU TO POST A GUARD
INSIDE AS WELL AS OUTSIDE THIS DOOR,

AND SHOOT ANYBODY WHO TRIES TO ENTER
WITHOUT A PERSONAL CLEARANCE FROM ME.

YES, SIR.

ADMIRAL, WE'RE GONNA SEARCH THIS
SHIP FOR SOME FORM OF MAGNETIC DEVICE.

SUPPOSE WE START
WITH YOUR CABIN.

[Knocking] COME IN.

MAY I? YEAH.

THIS IS MR. FORESTER. WILL THE
COMMANDING OFFICER OF THE MARINE DETAIL...

REPORT TO ADMIRAL
NELSON'S CABIN IMMEDIATELY.

LOOK AT THIS.

[Clicking]

I FOUND IT IN MORTON'S CABIN...
HIDDEN BEHIND THE MIRROR.

AN ORDINARY COMB...

SOMETHING ANY MAN
MIGHT CARRY IN HIS POCKET.

BUT ONE TOUCH, AND YOUR SILO IS
ABOUT AS DANGEROUS AS A GUM MACHINE.

I... I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT. I'VE KNOWN
CHIP EVER SINCE HE ENTERED THE ACADEMY.

WHERE'S MORTON LIKELY TO BE NOW?

[Sighs] [Riffling Papers]

HE'S, UM... HE'S IN
THE CONTROL ROOM.

[Knocking]

TAKE TWO MEN, ESCORT
MR. MORTON UP HERE RIGHT AWAY.

NO FUSS. YES, SIR.

ADMIRAL, I THINK WE CAN
GET ON WITH THE MISSION NOW.

I'M NOT SO SURE.

DON'T LET ME
DISTURB YOU, ADMIRAL.

I'M JUST GOING TO DOUBLE-CHECK
THE SILO-LAUNCHING GEAR.

FINE, LEE.

SICK BAY, THIS IS NELSON.

GET THE DOCTOR TO THE
MISSILE ROOM ON THE DOUBLE.

I'M SORRY, ADMIRAL. I HAD
HOPED IT WOULDN'T GET THIS FAR.

WE HAD TO BE CERTAIN.

AND NOW WE ARE.

[Nelson] CAN WE TALK TO HIM?

HE'S HEAVILY SEDATED. HE
MAY DRIFT OFF AT ANY TIME.

JUST DON'T PRESS HIM TOO HARD.

LEE.

LEE, CAN YOU HEAR ME?

LEE, IT'S NELSON.

NELSON. NELSON WILL
DESTROY THE WORLD.

[Gasping] NO.
NELSON'S MY FRIEND.

HE... EASY. EASY.

HE'S PROBABLY BEEN THROUGH SOME
SORT OF BRAINWASHING OR CONDITIONING.

THE SHOCK OF THE BULLET AND THE
SEDATION IS BRINGING HIM OUT OF IT.

KEEP QUESTIONING HIM.

LEE? WHY DID YOU TRY TO KILL ME?

KILL NELSON.

INSTRUCTIONS.

ORDERS.

SOMEONE IS WATCHING ME.

MY... MY SACRED DUTY.

WHAT DUTY, LEE? WHAT DUTY?

I... I'M A SWORN AGENT.

SWORN TO WHO? TO WHAT?

THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC. YES.

THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC. YES. NO!

I'M AN AMERICAN. [Groans]

WERE YOU SUPPOSED
TO STOP THIS MISSION?

MAKE THEM THINK...

THEY HAVE THE ULTIMATE WEAPON.

HE MUST HAVE BEEN SUPPOSED
TO DEACTIVATE THE SILOS.

THAT WAY,

WE'D BE DEAD IF
ANY TROUBLE CAME.

DID THEY TELL YOU WHAT WOULD
HAPPEN IF YOU FAILED? AND YOU HAVE.

USE... DESTRUCT... DEVICE.

DESTROY SHIP.

BUT... YOU CAN'T DESTROY
THE SHIP NOW, LEE.

WHAT HAPPENS? HE WILL. HE WILL.

WHO'S "HE"? WHO'S YOUR CONTACT?

[Groaning]

NOW THINK, LEE. WHO DID
YOU THINK IT WAS? [Laughing]

YOU MUST HAVE
SUSPECTED OR WONDERED.

[Laughing Continues]

ULLMAN. [Laughing]

MATCHES. NO MORE,
ADMIRAL. NO MORE. PLEASE.

IT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN ULLMAN.

IF THEY'D HAD ULLMAN, THEY
WOULDN'T HAVE NEEDED CRANE.

HE COULD'VE DEACTIVATED
THE SILOS AT ANY TIME.

WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE US?
SOMEBODY... WE DON'T KNOW WHO...

HAS ORDERS TO DESTROY THIS SUB ONCE IT'S
CLEAR THAT CRANE CAN NO LONGER FUNCTION.

WELL, HE SAID, UH... HE SAID
HE HAD INSTRUCTIONS, ORDERS.

NOW, THAT MIGHT MEAN THAT... SOMEONE
HAS SOME SORT OF A RADIO SETUP...

OR IS CONTACTING THE SUPERIOR...

IT'S NOT POSSIBLE. WITH THE
SHAKEDOWN WE GAVE THIS CREW,

NOBODY COULD'VE
GOTTEN A RADIO ABOARD.

NO, WAIT.

[Scoffs] NO, IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

WELL, WHAT? TELL ME.
IT IS POSSIBLE THEN.

THERE IS A RADIO ABOARD...

ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL
RADIOS IN THE WORLD.

OF COURSE. [Snaps Fingers]

THEN THAT MESSAGE ABOUT
CRANE'S MOTHER HAD TO BE A PHONY.

IT'S GOTTA BE YOUR
RADIO OPERATOR... PARKER.

WHERE'S PARKER? HE'S BEEN
RELIEVED OF THE WATCH, SIR.

PREPARE TO SURFACE,
MR. O'BRIEN. AYE, AYE, SIR.

MAKE READY TO BLOW BALLAST.

[Footsteps Approaching]

[Gunshots]

CAREFUL. THE BULLET
HITS ONE OF THOSE

WINDOWS, WE'LL HAVE
THE WHOLE PACIFIC IN HERE.

ANY MINUTE NOW, IT WON'T
MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE.

HE'S RIGGED AN
EXPLOSIVE ON THAT GLASS.

[Gunshots]

WE'VE GOTTA MAKE A MOVE.

WE SHOULD BROACH THE
SURFACE ANY SECOND NOW.

WE CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT.

[Clicking]

FORTUNATELY, WE BROACHED THE SURFACE
JUST AS THE WINDOW WAS BLASTED OUT.

ENGINEERING'S RIGGING A
STEEL PLATE FOR THE WINDOW.

WE'LL PROCEED WITH THE MISSION
AS SOON AS THEY WELD IT INTO PLACE.

I DON'T THINK WE'LL HAVE ANY
MORE PROBLEMS WITH SECURITY.

SORRY I GOT YOU INVOLVED
IN THIS, CHIP. FORGET IT, LEE.

WE NEVER THOUGHT
IT WAS HIM ANYWAY.

WHEN FORESTER WAS KNOCKED OUT,
CHIP WAS IN THE MISSILE ROOM WITH ME.

SOMEHOW I...

STILL FEEL AS THOUGH I
BETRAYED MY COUNTRY.

NONSENSE, LEE.

YOU COULDN'T HELP YOURSELF.
YOU WERE BRAINWASHED.

THEY MUST HAVE DONE THE SAME
THING WITH YOUR RADIO OPERATOR.

AS LONG AS THE ENEMY HAS TO GO
TO THESE LENGTHS TO WIN THEIR ENDS,

I'M NOT WORRIED
ABOUT OUR SECURITY.

THANK YOU.

[Chuckles]

PEACE.
