Reverend Frank Scott:
Mike Rogo: My shirt?
Linda Rogo: Come on.
Mike Rogo: Linda, next time you put something on like I told you to put on!


James Martin: What kind of a policeman were you? You've done nothing but beef and complain. Always negative, always destructive. Well, now's you're chance to something positive for a change! [tauntingly] Are you quitting, Mr. Rogo? Are you going out with a whimper, on your belly?
Mike Rogo: All right, you. That's enough.

So what resolution should we make for the new year? It's to let God know that you have the guts and the will to do it alone. Resolve to fight for yourselves, and for others, for those you love. And that part of God within you will be fighting with you all the way.

Please, God, not this woman. Not this woman.

[looking up to God] What more do you want of us? We've come all this way, no thanks to you. We did on our own no help from you. We did ask you to fight for us but damn it, don't fight against us! Leave us alone! How many more sacrifices? How much more blood? How many more lives? Belle wasn't enough. Acres wasn't. Now this girl! You want another life? Then take me! [turns to face the suriviors] You can make it, keep going! Rogo, get them through!

Mike Rogo: You! Preacher! You lyin', murderin' son of a bitch! I started to believe in your promises, that we had a chance. What chance? You took from me the only thing I ever loved in the whole world, my Linda.

Linda Rogo: I'm going next. So if old fat ass gets stuck in there, I won't get stuck behind her.

Belle Rosen: You see, Mr. Scott? In the water, I'm a very skinny lady.

Chief Engineer Joe: Chief here. Go ahead.
Captain Harrison: Joe, what the hell's going on down there? Is there nothing more you can do with those stabilizers?
Chief Engineer Joe: There's nothing wrong with the stabilizers, so there's nothing more I can do with them. Besides I got my hands full with this pump! You know damn well what the trouble is - it's that bastard Linarcos!
Captain Harrison: Would you care to repeat yourself? He's standing right here.
Chief Engineer Joe: Good! I hope he heard me!

Nurse Gina Rowe: [patiently] They're suppositories, Mr. Rogo. You don't swallow them.
Mike Rogo: Then what the hell do you do with them?
Linda Rogo: For Christ's sake, I know what to do with suppositories! Just get them outta here!

Mr. Linarcos: Your business is to deliver this ship where we want it! When we want it!
Captain Harrison: Running an unstable ship at full ahead is dangerous!
Mr. Linarcos: I'm sure!
Captain Harrison: Especially one as old as this!
Mr. Linarcos: I'm sure I don't have to remind you of my legal right to have you relieved of command. Three other officers here have their Master's License. Now, order Full Ahead!
Captain Harrison: You irresponsible bastard.

Robin Shelby: Why don't you shove it?
Susan Shelby: [angrily] Don't you ever say that to me again!
Robin Shelby: Shove it! Shove it! Shove it!

Mike Rogo: You know what it means to be picked out from all the people aboard to sit at the Captain's table on New Year's Eve? Well, I'll tell ya what it means. It means that all your worries about those other women looking on ya is a lot of bull.
Linda Rogo: He only invited you because you're a Detective Lieutenant. Why don't you just go without me?
Mike Rogo: And what am I supposed to do at midnight? Kiss the Captain?
Linda Rogo: Don't knock it.

Mike Rogo: Linda, ya hear me?
Linda Rogo: Will you shut up? I'm busy in here!
Mike Rogo: You weren't on the streets that long! How many guys did you know! Do you realize how slim even one of those characters is on this boat?
Linda Rogo: [affected accent] You don't have to shout.
Mike Rogo: [calmly] I said do you realize...
Linda Rogo: [shouts] I heard what you said!

Linda Rogo: Mike, I saw a young officer on deck the other day, and he looked pretty damn familiar... even with his clothes on.
Mike Rogo: So he recognized ya, so?
Linda Rogo: So doesn't that bother you?
Mike Rogo: If it bothered me, I wouldn'ta married ya.
Linda Rogo: Well, first you arrested me six times!
Mike Rogo: Well, I had to figure out some way to keep you off the streets... until you'd marry me!
Linda Rogo: Come here, you lousy cop.
