* BuxomIsBetter: Nurse Crandall is notably well-endowed, and it becomes something of a RunningGag when crewmen passing through the sub's narrow compartments "have to" (and probably intentionally) squeeze past her. It gets to the point that Sherman orders that Crandall is to be given right of way. Later, when they're forced to send out the women's undergarments as "wreckage" to convince the destroyer depth-charging them that they're an American sub, Crandall's is of course the one the crew haul aboard first.



* FridgeLogic: If they have white primer and red primer, but not enough of each to paint the entire sub, why mix them together and make pink primer? Just paint the hull red and the superstructure white, and it wouldn't look so ridiculous.

* BlatantLies: When Sherman is trying to convince Captain Henderson that the ''Sea Tiger'' is ready to ship out, none of his crew put up a good show of lying to the captain. Henderson is hardly impressed.

Repairs are finally complete and they are ready to get under way, but the No. 1 diesel engine keeps backfiring and sending out black smoke. As the engineers try to fix it, a local witch doctor comes up and starts doing some kind of ritual dance to ward off evil spirits. Sherman tries to get him to leave, when suddenly the engine starts and they are finally able to shove off. as the sub is heads out to sea, the engine backfires and the witch doctor stops dancing and shakes his head, remarking, "They'll never make it."
