Quotes

Cmdr. Harold Roberts: We'll find the wreck without your help.

Dr. Carl Hunter: Maybe you will if you aren't trampled to death first or eaten alive or die of starvation. Wait till the Antarctic night comes and for nine months the black air hangs round you like a rotten rag and your eyes are blinded from the dark and from your own sweat, and you lose each other - and you're alone - alone. Do you hear me? ...Always alone!

Cmdr. Harold Roberts: A few things I can be quite romantic about.

Margaret 'Maggie' Hathaway: Name one.

Cmdr. Harold Roberts: Well, women.

Margaret 'Maggie' Hathaway: Oh?

Cmdr. Harold Roberts: For example, although I know that women consist mostly of water with a few pinches of salt and metals thrown in, you have a very unsaltlike and non-metallic effect on me.

Cmdr. Harold Roberts: It is true that you can't live among beasts without becoming one. It is just as true that you can't live among human beings without becoming affected by their humanity.

Capt. Burnham: Hello, Lieutenant. I hope you won't mind having to fly the first woman over Antarctica.

Lt. Jack Carmen: [Obviously attracted to the beautiful reporter] Ma'am, you just say the word, and I'll fly you up to the moon.

Margaret 'Maggie' Hathaway: In a helicopter?

Capt. Burnham: [Reassuringly] You won't have to worry about him, Miss Hathaway. I'm sure he'll cool off as soon as he hits subzero weather.

Capt. Burnham: Of course, you're aware of the dangers of this trip?

Margaret 'Maggie' Hathaway: I am. I've read a great deal about Antarctica.

Capt. Burnham: I wasn't thinking of Antarctica, exactly. I was thinking more of your being alone with 800 men.

Margaret 'Maggie' Hathaway: I've read a great deal about men too. Don't forget, once I was alone with half a million of them for three months in Korea.

Capt. Burnham: In that case, Ms. Hathaway, I think you've had excellent basic training.
