      • RO: Vessel on my port bow, this is Australian warship. Stop or heave to, I intend to board you to enforce Australian law. No response, sir.
        Charge: That's 'cause you didn't say 'please.'

      • Mike: What were you thinking?
        Buffer: I didn't have time to think, boss.
        Mike: No, you were reckless.
        Buffer: I was just trying to save the boat, sir.
        Mike: Well, you not only put your own life in danger but the lives of the men who assisted you. You're not an expert.
        Buffer: Yes, sir.
        Mike: There are no cowboys on my boat, understood?
        Buffer: Yes, sir.
        Mike: Boats are replaceable, men aren't.

      • Charge: Young fellas reckon that Buff's a bit of a hero.
        Mike: What do you think?
        Charge: Ah, I told him he was a bloody idiot.

      • Bomber: Leave your manners on Huon, did you, sir?
        Jamie: Bomber Brown.
        Bomber: Pooh Patterson.
        Jamie: Don't tell me they're still letting you near a galley.
        Bomber: Must have been a pretty bad girl in a previous life. Looks like you've been spending too much time in one too, sir.
        Jamie: What? Fair go, this is all muscle. It's just a little relaxed muscle.

      • Charge: I was just away so much of time. I think Helen just got fed up.
        Buffer: That's the life. She knew that when she married you.
        Charge: Knowing it and living it are two different things. I don't blame her. It just wasn't much of a marriage.
        Buffer: What about 'for better, for worse'?
        Charge: Mate, I appreciate your support.
        Buffer: Hey, she left you.
        Charge: Yeah, yeah. Ten years ago, she took Jamie and Jessica and she moved a couple of hours South.
        Buffer: She cut and run, mate.
        Charge: I didn't try and get her to come back, 'cause the truth is I was relieved, 'cause I was only ever happy when I was at sea. And of course I miss my kids. I tried to keep in touch, had weekend access when I was on shore but it wasn't very often. Finally, they just....they didn't want to see me.
        Buffer: Sounds to me like she white-ended you.
        Charge: No, she's a good mum.
        Buffer: Yeah, sorry, mate. What's with the different name?
        Charge: She met another bloke. They moved further away. The kids took his name. Yeah, it's fair enough, I guess. He was their new dad.
        Buffer: Two sides to every argument. Now I do not believe that you were as bad as you say.
        Charge: Believe me, I was probably a hell of a lot worse.

      • 2Dads: They put on a pair of green overalls and they think they're God, end of story.
        Nav: I thought Luxton was going to rip your head off.
        2Dads: Yeah, me too for a sec. What do you reckon she was trying to prove?
        Spider: That we're hopeless?
        Bomber: Speak for yourself.
        Nav: Who says she was trying to prove anything?
        2Dads: Ah, from my experience, I reckon she had an agenda.
        Nav: I'm sorry, your experience? (everyone laughs)
        2Dads: Hey! Hey, if the female mind was a final Jeopardy question, I'd bet the bank.
        Bomber: And you'd lose.

      • Jamie: You want to talk to me? Okay, so talk. What have you got to say to me? I've hated you since I was ten and nothing's going to change that.
        Charge: I'm sorry.
        Jamie: No decent person abandons their kids.
        Charge: Well, your mother left me.
        Jamie: Because you were never there. Did you ever try and patch things up with her?
        Charge: Just thought that you'd be better off without me.
        Jamie: Yeah, well that's your call to make, Andy. No ten year old kid should have to listen to his mother cry herself to sleep at night. No ten year old kid should have to be the man of the house. You still want to talk? Yeah, I didn't think so.

      • Charge: I know how you feel and you've got every justification...
        Jamie: You know, one of the reasons its been so easy for me to keep on hating you is because every time I look in a mirror, I see you – my eyes, my nose, the shape of my mouth.
        Charge: Yeah, guess you've got the short...tall but relatively ugly straw.
        Jamie: It's lucky Jess takes after Mum then, isn't it?
        Charge: Yeah.
        Jamie: Call me, if you find the time.
        Charge: I'll find time.

      • Luxton: When they couldn't reach you....
        Buffer: You were worried.
        Luxton: You really shouldn't have proceeded without the attack party backing you up.
        Buffer: You might be right, but I have been trained by the best in the business, ma'am.
        Luxton: You're a boots and all kinda guy, Pete, except when you take them off to jump overboard to use your body as a human shield. Yeah, I heard about that too.
        Buffer: You think it was the wrong thing to do?
        Luxton: I think it's a mistake to think you can keep making exceptions to the rule. One day it's gonna catch up with you.
        Buffer: This isn't going to work, is it?
        Luxton: No. It's a shame though.
        Buffer: Yeah, it is a shame. Take care, Cynthia.
