Quotes 

  • Skip Tyler : When I was twelve, I helped my daddy build a bomb shelter in our basement because some fool parked a dozen warheads 90 miles off the coast of Florida. Well, this thing could park a coupla hundred warheads off Washington and New York and no one would know anything about it till it was all over.

    Skip Tyler : A caterpillar drive. Magneto hydrodynamic propulsion. You follow?

    Jack Ryan : No.

    Skip Tyler : It's like... a jet engine for the water. Goes in the front, gets squirted out the back. Only it has no moving parts so it's very, very quiet.

    Jack Ryan : Like how quiet.

    Skip Tyler : Doubt our sonar would even pick it up. If it did, it would sound like... whales humping or some kind of seismic anomaly. Anything but a submarine. We messed with this a few years ago. Couldn't make it work. This... this isn't a mockup.

    Jack Ryan : She was put to sea this morning.
