Jack Ryan quotes

Well, Sir, I was just thinking that perhaps there's another possibility we might consider. Raimus might be trying to defect.

[imitating the Admiral] "The average Rooskie, son, don't take a dump without a plan." Wait a minute. We don't have to figure out how to get the crew off the sub. He's already done that, he would have had to. All we gotta do is figure out what he's gonna do. So how's he gonna get the crew of the sub. They have to want to get off. How do you get a crew to want to get off a submarine? How do you get a crew to want to get off a nuclear sub...

I'm not an agent, I just write books for the CIA.

[to himself] Next time, Jack, write a damn memo.

[Sarcastic-imitating Ramius] "Ryan, some things in here don't react well to bullets." Yeah, like me. I don't react well to bullets.
