Run Silent Run Deep (1958)
Commander Richardson: A fleet boat of the Navy, a submarine with her fighting power still intact! And you'd take her back to Pearl? I don't believe it!

Commander Richardson: I see by this report that you called Mr. Cartwright an "ass."
Yeoman 1st Class Mueller: Yes, sir.
Commander Richardson: An officer?
Yeoman 1st Class Mueller: [hangs his head for a moment] That's right sir.
Commander Richardson: [shakes his head] Mueller, you're a damn fool.

Lt. Jim Bledsoe: If you should fail, and somehow come out of this alive, there won't be a desk small enough for you this time.
Commander Richardson: That's strange, Jim. I never even thought of failing.

Commander Richardson: The best exec I could possibly get in the whole Navy. "The backstop" I think you said, and the first command you give as a captain is to order a retreat!

Lt. Jim Bledsoe: It's one thing to drill a crew for fighting. But when you duck a Jap sub, they wonder why they should break their backs on drills when the captain has no stomach for attacking. What does he want? Obedience? Efficiency? Or the best drilled cowards in the Navy?
Commander Richardson: [after a long pause] Mr. Bledsoe, tell them I'm doubling the drills, starting tomorrow.
Lt. Jim Bledsoe: Yes sir.
[He starts to leave]
Lt. Jim Bledsoe: You might as well know, sir, I don't believe it.
Commander Richardson: Believe what?
Lt. Jim Bledsoe: That you ran away from that sub from cowardice.

Yeoman 1st Class Mueller: [after practicing submarine warfare tactics on Richardson's desk] You sunk him again, sir. That makes 200 times you sunk Bungo Pete
[checks calendar]
Yeoman 1st Class Mueller: In 200 days. He only sunk you once.
Commander Richardson: [irritated] Just once, but it wasn't on a desk.

Laura Richardson: [Richardson is cutting branches off his tree] Would you like some lemonade?
Commander Richardson: Sure honey, I'll be down by the time-
[Spots Bledsoe's cab]
Commander Richardson: Better make enough for three.
Laura Richardson: Three?
Commander Richardson: We have company arriving.
Laura Richardson: [distraught] I can't see anyone like this.
Commander Richardson: I don't think this is a social visit,
[Sees Bledsoe coming]
Commander Richardson: You'd better put some gin in that lemonade.
