    "On the 100th anniversary of the United States Navy's first

    submarine, we dedicate this episode to the warriors, past

    and present, who have always run silent, run deep." So ends a very special episode dedicated to those men and women who served and continue to serve our great country.



    "Overdue and Presumed Lost" explores the events leading up to Pearl Harbor and those of us living today. According to the JAG canon, the USN Dolphin encountered the Japanese fleet on its way to attack Pearl Harbor on December 5, 1941 (less than 48 hours before the attack). It successfully radios a code Orange (highest priority for the Secretary of War (previous title for the Secretary of Defense)). This episode explores how the JAG family discovers these facts and what happened to the message.



    There are two other sub-plots involving Harm, Mac, and Bud. They are interesting and a welcome relief from (for some) an emotional topic. As someone who had relatives at Pearl during the attack, this episode gives me mixed feelings on the events leading up to December 7, 1941. Only God knows the truth and through his mercy we will resolve in positive light our feelings. In the mean time, episodes like "Overdue and Presumed Lost" honor our fighting men and women of World War II.moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Admiral Chegwidden: We, too, are trying to discover the fate of the Dolphin's message, but Your honor, that has absolutely nothing to do with the issue before this court.
      Judge Green: I have read the cases cited in your brief, Admiral, and they do support the proposition that the Navy owns its warships in perpetuity whether they're sailing the high seas or embedded in the ocean bottom. But those cases deal with ownership of rusty cannons and barnacled hulls, not historical truth.
      Admiral Chegwidden: Your honor. It... it's the law.
      Judge Green: I am the law, until the appeals court tells me I'm wrong. I don't know what's buried with the Dolphin but we're going to find out. The government's request for an injunction is denied. Mr. Riggins' salvage claim is upheld.

    • Potts: Colonel... Isn't there anything I could do to stay in the Navy?
      Josh Kaplan: Why would you want to? Josh Kaplan, executive recruiter. Mr. Potts, how would you like to be senior software engineer for Astrosplash.com?
      Gary Jimirro: Not so fast. Gary Jimirro, Flashpan Gaming. We have a software designer position that I think...
      Josh Kaplan: I'm talking $100,000 a year, plus car.
      Gary Jimirro: $120,000 plus stock options.
      Potts: Yeah, great...
      Josh Kaplan: You want stock options? 40% of our employees are already millionaires.
      Gary Jimirro: Access to our corporate beach condo, a golf club membership...
      Potts: I just want to stay in the Navy.
      Bud: Ma'am?
      Mac: Uh... Uh, well, how about $20,000 a year and you forfeit 30 days pay as penalty, cramped quarters to which you're restricted for two weeks, mandatory physical training, a regulated diet, bi-weekly drug tests and you may end up in combat?
      Potts: Do you mean it, Colonel?
      Mac: Should we tell the judge that we've reached an agreement?
      Bud: (Looking at his client) Yes, Ma'am.

    • (Outside the courtroom, while waiting for the court martial jury to return)
      Mac: Why don't you try to relax, Bud? I know he's a good kid and you want to win.
      Bud: I know that, ma'am. It's just... It's the names. You know, 'Bubble Butt', 'Jelly Belly'... when I was 14, that was me.
      Mac: It's not anymore, Bud.
      Bud: Inside, ma'am -- it's always who you are.

    • (Walking and talking about Harm's assignment to work with the Hill on the JAG budget)
      Admiral Chegwidden: And the budget, did you get the 4.3% increase?
      Harm: No, Sir.
      Admiral Chegwidden: Well, what the hell happened?
      Harm: Well, Sir. Renee made a few suggestions and...
      Admiral Chegwidden: Renee?!
      Harm: Yes, Sir, and I recommended that we add an inflation factor, contingency fund, and a travel allowance and the committee will support an 8.1% increase, Admiral.
      Admiral Chegwidden: Nicely done, Commander.
      Harm: (Smiling) Ha!
      Admiral Chegwidden: Huh! Well from now on, you'll handle our budget request every year.

    • Harm: You're going to re-write history.
      Admiral Chegwidden: It won't be me, Harm. It'll be those men on the sub.

    • Bud: (to PO Potts) This case, it's bigger than you are. Um, metaphorically.
