Sink the Bismarck! (1960)
[to his assistant Anne Davis, after the battle]
Captain Jonathan Shepard: Take a message: "Request pleasure of the company of Second Officer Anne Davis at dinner."
Captain John Leach: [after the sinking of HMS Hood] Yeoman... Make to Admiralty from Prince of Wales. Tell them... Tell them the Hood has blown up.
Edward R. Murrow: This is London, Ed Murrow reporting. This island, which is no stranger to bad tiding, received news today that HMS Hood largest warship in the British fleet and pride of the British navy, has been sunk by the German battleship Bismarck. From the Hood's compliment of 1500 men, there were three survivors.
Suffolk Lookout #2: Solid foot of armor plate, that's what the Bismark's got.
Suffolk Lookout #1: Who said so?
Suffolk Lookout #2: The gunnery officer that's who. Said for all the good our guns would do, we might as well throw crumpets at her.
Suffolk Lookout #1: [pauses] I wish someone would throw a crumpet at me.
Captain Jonathan Shepard: [walking into broad daylight] Great heavens! It's nine o'clock in the morning! And I asked you out to dinner.
Anne Davis: We could always make it breakfast, couldn't we?
Captain Jonathan Shepard: Of course.
[exeunt, passing two ratings]
Able Seaman: You know, Harvey, these boys worry me. Four stripes on 'is arm, and he don't know what time of the day it is.
First Workman: They can't do this to me, I'm in a reserved occupation!
