Awesome / Das Boot

  • The U-96 attacks an Allied convoy, with the track "U-96" playing.
  • The U-96 is spotted at Gibraltar and immediately hunted down by British planes, ships and vessels, which throw flares on the sea to see it. The submarine meanwhile tries to escape as fast as it can.
  • Chief Engineer Fritz Grade gets special mention; he comes back to fix the submarine solo on the sea bottom, on limited oxygen, over 15 hours.
    Fritz: Reporting to the captain. Electric motor fixed. Main pump fixed. Water can be pumped into the tanks then blown out with compressed air. Compass ready. Sonar ready.
    Der Alte: *stares* ...Good, chief. Take a rest now.
    Fritz: Still got a few small problems. *stumbles off and collapses against a bulkhead*
  • The scene where the submariners manage to escape from the bottom of the sea at Gibraltar and return to La Rochelle, with the Captain yelling at the British who have retreated: "Maybe they are in the casino, celebrating our sinking? NOT YET, KAMERADEN, NOT YET!"
