YMMV: Down Periscope
  • Accidental Innuendo: 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.
  • Awesome Music: "Anchors Aweigh", the US Naval Academy fight song, plays as the Stingray goes out. Complete with awesome military choir.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: 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 sink 9 US Navy vessels including a nuclear aircraft carrier and the exercise command ship without ever being detected.
