* AccidentalInnuendo: Dodge does this twice when introducing Lt. Lake to the rest of the crew, much to his embarrassment.
-->'''Dodge:''' All right, look, gentlemen! I know this is an unusual situation. Can't be easy for Lt. Lake to be thrown into a jungle such as this, and I know it will make things hard on all of us... ''*crew laughs*'' Let me re-phrase that. It's going to make things '''difficult''' on all of us as well. But, if we just work together as a team, I'm sure we can handle ourselves... ''*crew laughs*'' ...comport ourselves as professionals. That is all.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "Anchors Aweigh", the US Naval Academy fight song, plays as the ''Stingray'' goes out. Complete with awesome military choir.
* EsotericHappyEnding: Congratulations, Commander Dodge. You just proved it would be possible for a rogue state to launch a nuclear sneak attack on any American harbor using a diesel sub. At least it means they can start planning against such attacks instead of dismissing the idea out of hand.
** Although presumably the observers of the war-games would then start making plans to counter such an eventuality. The whole point of a war-game, after all, is to simulate and test particular military hypotheses to determine how valid they are.
** This exact war-game has been done by the US Navy in real life. The diesel boats often win because of their utter silence when in silent mode, unlike nuclear boats which must cool their reactors at all times.
* HarsherInHindsight: In 2006 a Chinese diesel sub went undetected by the USS ''Kitty Hawk'' battlegroup until it surfaced within torpedo range, taking advantage of their near total silence while running on batteries. Diesel-electric subs have a long history of doing performing similar stunts. In 1999, during a naval exercise, a Dutch diesel-electric sub managed to (simulated) sink 9 US Navy vessels including a nuclear aircraft carrier and the exercise command ship without ever being detected.
