and wait for Nagumo's carriers.
Why not head northwest
and hit them head-on?.

There's a chance
Washington may be right.

You think Hawaii and the West Coast
could be the real target?.

It doesn't really matter, provided
I'm in a position to cut them off.

If it's Midway, I'll bushwhack them.
Alright. Jack, you're senior. You take
command when you join up. - Yes, Sir.

The Yorktown will be at sea
in less than 72 hours.

I don't need to stress that Yamamoto
outweighs us in every department.

Our 3 carriers are all that stands
between the enemy fleet and our coast.

Now, your point of rendezvous,
what should we call it?.

""Point Luck"", Sir.
Sounds like a prayer,
but it's damned appropriate.

Son of a bitch!
- Hi, Bill.

Wanted to call the nurse
to have that tree cut down.

It spoils my view of the boatyard.
Feeling OK?.
I can't sleep. I can't eat.
I just sit and scratch 24 hours a day.

You ever try an oatmeal
and water bath?. Don't.

I want to thank you for recommending
me to take your place.

I have a question:
Did that itch go to your head?.
Stop underestimating yourself.
Any skipper who can keep
his cruisers and destroyers

alongside my carriers across the whole
Pacific is the man for the job.

You know, you and l...
Bill, we're kind of different.
You think I can do it as well as you?.
I can only tell you this, Ray:
You play it the way you feel it,
not the way you think I'd play it.

You go to sea, find Yamamoto and
chew his ass. Nothing more to it.
