Today’s The Daily Post ask us to dip into our reservoir of favorite movie quotes
In the spring of 1986, I was handed a copy of a new novel from a friend who said, “You might like this…”
It was the late Tom Clancy’s first novel The Hunt for Red October which was made into a movie in 1990. The line comes first from Marko Ramius, the defecting sub’s captain, as a KGB agent, posing as part of the crew and who is attempting to blow up the sub, opens fire on the those in the control room and kills the executive officer. Jack Ryan, a CIA officer who figures out what Ramius is doing and who comes aboard the Red October as part of a small USN contingent, goes to take out the agent and sarcastically repeats the line as he craws through the missile bay to take out the KGB agent.
