Operation Petticoat (1959)
Lt. Cmdr Matt T. Serman: Sir, Sea Tiger was built to fight. She deserves a better epitaph than 'Commissioned 1940, sunk 1941, engagements none, shots fired none.' Now, you can't let it go that way. That's like a beautiful woman dying an old maid, if you know what I mean by old maid.
Capt. J.B. Henderson: Did you ever sell used cars?
lt. Cmdr. Matt T.Sherman: No, Sir.
Capt. J.B. Henderson: I've got a hunch you missed your calling.

[part of the corrugated iron wall of the Admiral's office has vanished]
Capt. J.B. Henderson: Mr. Sherman, I want my wall back!
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: I'm not sure that we have it, Sir!
Capt. J.B. Henderson: You must have it! You've got everything else!

Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Molumphry, will this boat go down?
Chief Molumphry: Like a rock sir.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Mr. Watson, how are the plates?
Lt. Watson: Tight as a drum sir.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: And the engines, Tostin?
Chief Mechanic's Mate Sam Tostin: Factory fresh, sir.
Lt. Cmdr. Matt T. Sherman: Well how about it?
Capt. J.B. Henderson: I say take your thieves and these liars here and get the hell out. Oh there's one stipulation, you'll engage no enemy shipping and that includes lifeboats. Even if you see one of them swimming in the water, avoid him. He might kick a hole in your side. Good luck Matt.
