Welcome back, Mr. Lasky.

Lasky:
Think of the history of the next forty years...



Commander Richard Owens:
I have a suspicion history will be a little more difficult to beat, than you imagine Mr. Lasky.



Lasky:
I'm talking about the classic paradox of time. Imagine, for example, I go back in time and meet my own Grandfather. Long before he got married, before he had children. And we have an argument, and I kill him. Now if that happens, how am I ever going to be born? And if I can never be born, how can I go back in history and meet my very own Grandfather?



Commander Richard Owens:
[angrily] I'm not half the theorist you are, Mr. Lasky. But I still have a gut instinct that things only happen once. And if they have happened, then there's nothing we can do to change them. Nor should we try.



Lasky:
Well, how are you going to avoid it? It's already happening, and we're already involved!



Commander Dan Thurman:
For Christ's sake! What is this, some half-assed Princeton debating society? We are in a war situation! This is a United States warship! Or, at least, it used to be. Or will be. Or what the hell ever! Oh, Goddammit, you can drive yourself crazy just trying to think about this stuff!


[shouts]



Commander Dan Thurman:
Jesus, I must be dreaming!

F-14 pilot #1:
[the Japanese Zeroes have just destroyed the Yacht] They blew it to pieces! They must've hit the fuel tank!



Captain Yelland:
Any survivors?



F-14 pilot #1:
Stand by... Affirmative. One, two, three Mae West. Hey wait a minute! Those bastards are turning back, they're gonna strafe them in the water! Request permission to arm and fire!



Captain Yelland:
Eagle Control to Alert One, you are clear to arm, but don't fire. Throw them off, play with them, but do not fire.



F-14 pilot #1:
Affirmative!


[the F-14's proceed to intercept the Zeroes]

Pilot:
[the Corsair is inbound to the Nimitz before the first time storm] Nimitz, this is 412, I have an unsafe hook indicator, over.



Air Boss:
412, roger unsafe hook. Recycle your hook.



Pilot:
Negative, I've tried that.



Air Ops Officer:
412, your transmission's poor, say your fuel state.



Air Boss:
[over the intercom to the bridge] Captain, Boss, that Corsair's in real trouble, can't get his tailhook down. I think we better take him in the barricade.



Captain Yelland:
Rig it!
