providing Nimitz and Halsey
do exactly what you expect.

The Enterprise and the Hornet
are due in by sundown.

The rest of the task force
should be in by morning.

The Yorktown is more
severely damaged than we thought.

How soon can we dry-dock her?.
By the 17th, if a Jap sub
doesn't spot the oil she's trailing.

Admiral Fletcher
just radioed in with a repair list.

Tell the yard repairman I want
every workman he can get to board her.

That sharpshooter from Washington
just landed. Be here in 30 minutes.

Who did they send?.
- Captain Vinton Maddox.

Maddox. He's a damned scalp hunter!
See that he's thoroughly briefed,
and get Captain Garth up here.

why don't you let me handle it?.

No, he's entitled to a crack at me.
Phone that in.

Are those arming switches fixed?.
- No, we still got some damn snafu.

Get them working 100%, or rip them
out of all our SBDs. Is that clear?.

Yes, Sir.
- Get to it.

Sorry to drag you out of bed so early,
but it's our only chance to talk.

It's OK. Did you get the report?.
- Yup.

I've already read it.
Did you know your girl
belonged to those
Japanese patriotic organizations?.

I saw the magazines,
but I didn't know it was propaganda.

The Attorney General's office
says it's subversive.

And the FBl doesn't think she's
telling the truth about coming here.

You can't blame them for that.
- Sure I can! And I can clear it up!

You cool down
and let me handle this!
