When LCDR Reese breaks the ashtray, he explains that it was expensive because it was designed to break into three dull pieces to prevent fragments of glass from blinding officers on an attack submarine. GSA Regulation AA-A-710E, which specified the criteria for ash trays purchased for the government, allows for test specimens to break into no more than 35 pieces, and only pieces 1/4 inch and larger on two sides should be counted.
