The Hunt for Red October (1990)
Fred Dalton Thompson: Admiral Painter
[Jack Ryan, in US Navy Commander uniform, exits after meeting the Admiral and Captain of the carrier]
Admiral Josh Painter : You think he's crazy?
Captain Davenport : Certifiable. And no matter what his credentials, I don't care for him wearing the uniform.
Admiral Josh Painter : You see that ring on his finger? The Academy, Class of '72. A Marine.
Captain Davenport : You're kidding! How did you...
Admiral Josh Painter : Greer told me. Summer of his third year, he and his squad went down in a chopper accident in the Med. Bad - pilot, crew killed. That kid spent ten months in traction, another year learning to walk again. Did his fourth year from the hospital. Now it's up to you, Charlie, but you might consider cuttin' the kid a little slack.
Admiral Josh Painter : This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it.
