The Hunt for Red October (1990) Poster

Larry Ferguson: Chief of the Boat


  • [telling young Sonarman Beaumont about Jones's most embarrassing moment] 

    Watson : Seaman Jones here is into music in a big way, and he views this whole boat as his own personal, private stereo set. Well, one day he's got this piece of Pavarotti...

    Seaman Jones : It was Paganini.

    Watson : Whatever.

    Seaman Jones : It was Paganini.

    Watson : Look, this is my story, okay?

    Seaman Jones : Then tell it right, COB. Pavarotti is a tenor, Paganini was a composer.

    Watson : So anyway, he's got this music out in the water, and he's listening to it on his headsets, and he's just happy as a clam. And then all hell breaks loose. See, there's this whole slew of boats out in the water...

    Seaman Jones : Including one WAY out at Pearl!

    Watson : Including one way the hell out at Pearl. All of a sudden, they start hearing, Pavarotti...

    Beaumont : Pavarotti!

    Watson : Coming up their asses!

  • Watson : Y'know, I seen me a mermaid once. I even seen me a shark eat an octopus. But I ain't never seen no phantom Russian submarine.

  • Seaman Jones : COB, we don't have time for sea stories. I was just teaching Seaman Beaumont, here, the intracacies of modern sonar, now...

    Watson : [chuckling]  Yea, and I ain't Chief Of the Boat, I'm actually Sheena, queen of the jungle!
