I saw this movie in my childhood and still remember some of the most funniest scenes till date!
24 June 2006 | by imranpeerSee all my reviews

One of the most memorable scenes in the movie is when Lt. Cmdr. O'Hara is fishing with Garfield but on separate decks-Seeing the Lt.Cmdr. frustrated by not having caught any fish, Garfiled quickly releases his "healthy" catch into the sea with an expression of displeasure on his face relating to what he considers an "unworthy" catch! This infuriates the Lt.Cmdr. even more and he commands his subordinates saying-"Full Fish ahead"(meaning full speed ahead but replacing the word speed with fish as fishing was all that currently occupied his mind! Moreover, the thought of Garfield-considered by the Lt.Cmdr as an unworthy seaman, having caught a bigger catch(or for that matter caught a catch at the least!) was a fact that the Lt.Cmdr. could not digest!)
