[during the standoff with the bomb]
Harry: For God's sakes, think about what you're doin'. Why are you listening to someone that's a hundred thousand miles away? No one down there can help us and if we don't get this job done, then everybody's gone.
Chick: Forty two seconds.
Harry: I have been drilling holes in the earth for thirty years. And I have never, never missed a depth that I have aimed for. And by God, I am not gonna miss this one. I will make 800 feet.

Harry: I will make 800 feet. I swear to God I will.
Col. Sharp: [lowers his gun] Then let's turn this bomb off.
