Lifeboat (1944)
Connie Porter: [speaking of the disaster] Reminds me of an air raid once that hit me in Chunking.
John Kovac: Reminds me of a slaughterhouse I once worked in in Chicago. Those Nazi buzzards - a tin fish ain't enough. They've got to shell us too!

Gus Smith: A guy can't help being a German if he's born a German, can he?
John Kovac: [referring to Willie] Neither can a snake help being a rattlesnake if he's born a rattlesnake! That don't make him a nightingale! Get him out of here!

John Kovac: [to Ritt] What do you know about a ship?
Connie Porter: Among other things, he just happens to own a shipyard, that's all.
John Kovac: Has he ever been in it?

John Kovac: As of now I'm skipper, and anybody who don't like it can get out and swim to Bermuda. What about that?
Gus Smith: I'll buy it.
Stanley 'Sparks' Garrett: Suits me. What about you, Miss?
Alice MacKenzie: I'm for it.
George 'Joe' Spencer: Yes, sir!
Charles D. 'Ritt' Rittenhouse: Well, if the rest agree.
Connie Porter: All right, Commissar, what's the course?

John Kovac: [after the young German sailor pulls a gun] The baby has a toy!

[first lines]
[indistinct shouting]
John Kovac: Ahoy there!
[climbs into boat]
John Kovac: Lady, you certainly don't look like somebody that's just been shipwrecked.
Connie Porter: Man, I certainly feel like it.

Connie Porter: [last lines, translating the German soldier's words] He said "Aren't you going to kill me?"
Stanley 'Sparks' Garrett: "Aren't you going to kill me". What are you gonna do with people like that?
John Kovac: I dunno. I was thinking of Mrs Higley and her baby. And Gus.
Connie Porter: Well. Maybe *they* can answer that.
