The Abyss (1989)
Lt. Coffey: It went straight for the warhead, and they think it's cute!
Lindsay Brigman: There is something down there. Something not us. Catfish De Vries: You could be more specific. Lindsay Brigman: Not us. Not human, get it? Something non-human but intelligent ... A non-terrestrial intelligence. Alan "Hippy" Carnes: A non-terrestrial intelligence? NTIs. Oh man, that's better than UFOs. Oh, but that works too, huh? "Underwater Flying Objects".
Bud "Virgil" Brigman: Linds, I want you to stay away from that guy. I mean it. Alan "Hippy" Carnes: The guy is gone. Did you see his hands? Lindsay Brigman: What? He got the shakes? Bud "Virgil" Brigman: Look, he's operating on his own. He's cut off from his chain of command. He's showing signs of pressure-induced psychosis, and he's got a nuclear weapon. So as a personal favor to me, will you try to put your tongue in neutral for a while? Alan "Hippy" Carnes: I got to tell you, I give this whole thing a spinchter-factor of about 9.5.
Lindsay Brigman: So raise your hand if you think that was a Russian water-tentacle.
Lt. Coffey: Everybody just stay calm. The situation is under control.
Alan "Hippy" Carnes: So these guys are really Navy SEALS, huh? Catfish De Vries: Eh, they ain't so tough. I fought guys plenty tougher'n them. Alan "Hippy" Carnes: So, is this where you tell us how you "coulda been a contender"?
[Lindsay sees the nuclear warhead] Lindsay Brigman: You know, you got some huevos bringin' that thing into my rig! With all that's going on up in the world you bring a nuclear weapon IN HERE? Lt. Coffey: Mrs. Brigman... Lindsay Brigman: Does this strike anyone as particularly psychotic or is it just me? Lt. Coffey: Mrs. Brigman, you don't need to know the details of our operation, it's better if you don't. Lindsay Brigman: You're right, I don't need to know, what I need to know is that THING is off this rig, do you hear me ROGER RAMJET?
Bud: When it comes to the safety of these people, there's me and then there's God, understand?
[About to drown on purpose.] Lindsay Brigman: This was maybe not such a good idea!
Bud "Virgil" Brigman: God damn it, you bitch! You never backed away from anything in your life! Now fight! [Slaps Lindsay.] Fight! [Slaps Lindsay again.] Fiiiiight!
Lindsay Brigman: [About the Navy SEALS.] These guys are about as fun as a tax audit.
Lindsay Brigman: We all see what we want to see. Coffey looks and he sees Russians. He sees hate and fear. You have to look with better eyes than that.
Lt. Coffey: We don't need them. We can't trust them. We may have to take steps. We're gonna have to take steps.
Bud "Virgil" Brigman: [regarding Lindsay Brigman] God, I hate that bitch. Alan "Hippy" Carnes: You probably shouldn't have married her then.
Lindsay Brigman: Explorer, this is Cab 3, starting the descent along the cable. Some guy: Roger that, Cab 3. Good luck. Lindsay Brigman: Luck is not a factor.
Bud "Virgil" Brigman: Hippy, you think everything is a conspiracy. Alan "Hippy" Carnes: Everything is.
