Season One (2007) 
Welcome Aboard (1.01, 001) 
Mike: When we last met, on the course. I never expected we'd end up on the same ship you being a big ship sort of person and me being wedded to patrol boats.
Kate: Yes, you're right. I am a big ship sort of person.
Chefo: Word is you haven't been saluting the ship's mascot.
Spider: I'm supposed to salute it? Who is he?
Chefo: It's Thor - the thunder god.
Spider: Oh, my mum wouldn't like me saluting him then. We're Presbyterian.
Buffer: Don’t listen to him, Spider.
Spider: Oh, my name’s Billy. Billy Webb.
Chefo: Yeah, that’s right. Spider Webb.
Spider: No, I had that all through school. I joined the navy to get away from it all.
Buffer: Good luck with that, Spider.
- Mike: What’s happening, Buffer?
- Buffer: They’re still looking for a tube, sir.
- Mike: (Looks thoughtful.) Tell X she’s got a pistol. Use it.
- Buffer: You want him to shoot her?
- Mike: Tell X to break down her Browning, remove the 9-millimetre barrel, use it as a tube. Over.
- Buffer: Got it.
- Mike: (Chuckles.) Shoot her.
- Nav: Well, that’s one way of ending a crisis.
- Jaffah: It’s freezing.
- ET: No it’s not. We’re too close to the equator.
- Jaffah: Do we have any sharks in these waters?
- ET: No. The saltwater crocodiles scare ‘em away.
- Jaffah: Crocodiles?
- ET: I’m joking.
Buffer: You got my smokes?
Buffer: My smokes. You got 'em?
Spider: You said not to give them to you.
Buffer: That was then, this is now.
Spider: Yeah but you said even if you asked.
Buffer: Spider, I'm a gentle man. Don't tempt me to violence.
Spider: I can't. I swapped them for some crabs.
What Lies Beneath (1.02, 002) 
- Mike: Enjoying yourself, X?
- Kate: Driving a patrol boat is very different to a frigate.
- Nav: Ha! Yeah, different as! Like a V8 and a schoolbus.
- Mike: You’re a westie petrolhead, Nav.
(When ET dives to check what’s under the Hammersley.)
- Alicia: The gunner is there because...?
- Kate: In case of sharks.
- Buffer: Oh, I wouldn’t concern yourself, ma’am. No self respecting shark would eat him.
- Nav: But if one just snacked on him a little, might do the women of the world a favour.
- Mike: Nav, mark the buoy’s position on radar.
- Nav: It’s already marked, sir.
- Mike: Just once I’d like to get in ahead of you,
- Nav: (Laughs.) In your dreams, sir.
- Mike: And he’s under the impression that you’re Wonder Woman.
- Kate: Oh, you didn’t already know that?
Ghost of Things Past (1.03, 003) 
Spider: I think it's a ghost ship.
Buffer: It's a catamaran, you idiot.
RO: A man goes yachting to get away from his wife. Well, if he’s gonna call her every day, he might as well stay at home. (Leaves.)
Nav: Future Mrs Robert Dixon’s gonna be one lucky girl.
Kate: Sir, four elephants and a giraffe could’ve gone over in that storm, we’d never know.
Mike: I think we can safely not bother looking for any elephants. The giraffe on the other hand…
Mike: (Observing Bright Island) Feds?
Buffer: Looks like it, sir.
Mike: I dropped off two agents, but I can see another six. What the hell are they doing?
Buffer: Breeding, sir?
Chefo: Hey, guys, guys what Spider’s just done.
Buffer: Chefo, as you can see, we’re playing a game here, and every time you interrupt, I lose concentration and Swaino wins.
Chefo: I’m sorry, Buff. You’re gonna want to hear this. You remember the blood you found on the catamaran?
Swain: Spider found it, yeah.
Chefo: Yeah. Well, it was evidence, and Spider, the tool, just cleaned it up.
Swain: He what?
Chefo: Yeah. X is fuming. Apparently it was the only thing to prove Jackson’s lying.
Buffer: Good one, Spider.
Swain: Mate, glad he’s in your division. It’s gonna be messy.
Chefo: I’d better go. Don’t want to miss the fun.
Swain: I win, by the way.
Buffer: I’m gonna kill Chefo.
Irukandji (1.04, 004) 
- [Spider and Kate are talking about Jaffa after he's been stung.]
Spider: They're going to be ok aren't they? Right? X?
Kate: I don't know Spider, I'm not a doctor.
Spider: But it's just a jellyfish sting.
Kate: Well, severe Irukandji syndrome can be fatal. I've got to get back to the bridge. If there is any change in his condition get Swain immediately.
Spider: Yes Sir... (Kate gives him a look.) Um, ma'am.
Under The Radar (1.05, 005) 
Precious Cargo (1.06, 006) 
Nav: Roger Romeo2, we might have to sink it. Over.
ET: Wow, what about the Maritime salvaging rights, there might be a ferrari in this thing.
Nav: And who's gonna drive it back to base, Romeo? You?
Fisherman: Hey Spider, is that you, mate? How are you going? How are those crabs we gave you?
There is an awkward pause. Chefo sniggering in background.
Spider: (defensively) They're talking about seafood. They gave me some crabs on Bright Island!
Whole Crew laughs.
Spider: Chefo, tell them about the crabs in the freezer.
Chefo: I don't know what you're talking about, mate.
Rescue Me (1.07, 007) 
Nav: I reckon they'd call it the rescue complex.
ET: So what, you're saying she needed to be rescued?
Nav: The rescue complex refers to the one doing the rescuing. You seemed pretty keen to wanna rescue her. [ET tries to speak] Glad she didn't shoot you though. Well, maybe glad is to strong a word.
Through the Storm (1.08, 008) 
Spider: Ma'am. Does this make us square now?

ET: I heard you fellows couldn't deal without me.
Buffer: Yeah right.
Swain: It's good to see you again mate.
ET: It's good to be here.

(CO and XO talking about CO's decision of the grunt boarding.)
XO: You put our crew on harms way, Sir.
CO: No one was injured.
XO: Through good luck and good training.
CO: Oh come on, Kate! Who dares wins. Surely you have heard that by now.
(The last statement was a double entendre. It was a rib about CO's relationship with Jim Roth)
XO: Yeah, it's the SAS motto, Sir.
CO: Yeah that's right, it is. And I would have thought that it would have been right up your alley.
(Now this statement clearly a statement on the XO's relationship with Jim Roth.)
XO: Why are you doing this to me? Why are you denying me any opportunity to move on from you?
(XO starts to walk out.)
CO: Look Kate, I'm sorry. I was out of line. It's just that... sometimes we find ourselves facing circumstances that ah beyond our control. And in such situations a person has to seize the moment. Don't you agree?
XO: I think leadership takes courage.
CO: I think a lot things do.
(They look into each others' eyes. CO leans like he was thinking of kissing the XO and changes his mind.)
CO: That's all.
(XO goes out the room, closes the door and leans on the wall for a moment while taking a deep breath.)

Mike: Ok, thank you.

Kate: (Under the effects of rohypnol.) I don’t agree with extramarital soy sauce.
Birds (2.06, 019) 
Mike: Nav what's your take on this Agent Fulton?
Nav: He's a Marine Protection guy Sir.
Mike: Yeah I know that but what's your take on him? Is he a loose cannon?
Nav: He's...a Marine Protection guy Sir.
Mike: Right, enough said.
Kate: What I need is a card that says 'Why is there a man in a barrel?'
Buffer: There'll be one in there somewhere Ma'am.
Nav: Haven't you had enough action for one day?
ET: Nah never, just ahh, I think I pulled a muscle boarding that FFV I thought I might stretch it out.
Nav: Oh no I know what you're doing, trying to drive me crazy.
ET: Is it working?
Nav: No, it's having absolutely no effect whatsoever.
ET: Oh, well I guess I'm safe just to keep doing it then.
Nav: Just don't blame me if I can't think about anything else.
Nav: He kissed me.
Kate: He kissed you by accident?
Kate: I'm aware that you and ET have feelings for each other. Now I don't want to hear about that because I know that nothing would ever happen on the ship. You are too mature and professional for that to happen.
Nav: Thank you.
ET: (When he's just been told his leg will be amputated) At least we'll always get a car space.
RO: At least you didn't contract bird flu.

RO: Guys, some of us are trying to work here.
[Kate walks in]
Kate: Ahh, have we found something of interest on the EOD?
Charge: No, just perving on the cruiser.
Kate: What's Webb done with his life jacket?
Charge: Ummm well he.....
Nav: You know Spider, he's just...Spider.
Mike: It’s just about being at sea.
Kate: Yeah, skippering a giant plastic bath toy.
Mike: You sound upset, X. Could it be that you’d miss me?
Kate: I just think that… it would be a terrible waste for the navy.

Mike: How do we frame our grief? How do we make sense of a life taken away so early? These are the things we will ponder for years to come and there are no easy answers. What is clear, though, is the way ET lived his life. He represented the finest values of the Royal Australian Navy. He believed passionately. He was loyal to his crew, and he never sharped his duty. He was courageous, diligent, and his sense of humour could defuse even the most difficult situation. He was a son, he was a brother, he was a friend, and he... he was a member of my crew. We will miss him.
Navy Chaplain: I now commit Leading Seaman Joshua Holiday to the sea, may his soul rest in peace.
Buffer: General salute, present, arms!

Mike: I thought we had a date...
Kate: I thought we cancelled.
Mike: I'd just like to know why you walked away from me today.
(Mike was referring to an earlier scene at NavCom after an argument with the her, Commander White and Mike.)
Kate: Because you've turned.
Mike: And what is that supposed to mean?
Kate: Well, you're clearly one of the bureaucrats now.
Mike: I'm just doing my job. I have responsibilities that come with this new position like it or not.
Kate: And that includes not supporting your old crew, does it?
Mike: I have to be impartial. It's not personal.
Kate: Oh, that's crap. You know you hide behind this veneer of command. I look of you with your straight back and square shoulders, and it is your armor. And you won't let anyone in because you're afraid. You're an emotional coward, Mike Flynn!
(Mike walks away chuckling.)
Kate: And I have put up with it for three years now. And sometimes I think actually enjoy tormenting me.
Mike: Oh come on, Kate! That is not fair! You know the regulations.

Bomber: You killed that man!! Preacherd.
Shawn: Is that what they're saying? I didn't do that - Peter killed him.
Bomber: But you were there.
Shawn: He was going to the authorities! He had this additude that the poppies compromise us. Everybody in paradise knew about the poppies.
Bomber: So they all knew that Peter mudered one of their own?
Shawn: No. He didn't tell them.
Bomber: You make me sick!
Mike: Get him out of here, 2Dads (Escorting Shawn to the police)

Bomber: Sir. Just for the record, I decided to renew my contract for another three years.
Mike: Glad to have you on board, Bomber.

(CO and Bomber smile at each other)
Bomber:Excuse me (walks toward Dutchy and kisses him on the cheek)

Bomber: 2Dads told me that you found me and carried me all that way. Thanks.
Dutchy: No, that wasn't me, that was RO. But thanks anyway.

Bomber: Hey! I thought the rule was to bait your own hook.
Bird: I don't do slimy!
Bomber: Guess that kills 2Dads' chances!
2Dads: Oh, it's a monster! Get the net! (fighting a fish on the line)
Swain: Come on mate! Get the camera, Bomb! (She reaches for her camera)
(Swain laughs as 2Dads reels in a small fish.)
Bomber: That's your monster?
(Swain still laughing)
Dutchy: It's huge!

Charge: Why did you volunteer for this detail?
Bomber: I didn't want to be there when they called off the search.
Bomber: So, is there anything I could help?

Bomber: Remember when he brought that monkey onboard?
Radio/Coast Watch: This is the Coast Watch Anouncement. Attention all shipping. The Sudbury Kay - a person's been spotted by Civilian Aircraft on the kay in need of assistance. There are no further details at this time, any vessel in the area, please respond. Over.
Charge: Sudbury Kay!
Bomber: Charge!! That's way south of the search area. It couldn't be him.
Charge: Why not?
Bomber: Well, not if he was diving up in Saxon Reef. It's aganist the wind direction, current - it's impossible.
Charge: But what if he wasn't on Saxon Reef?
Charge: What if they were diving up in Palau Reef? What if Herry Edwards created a fake search area to the north, so he could find 2Dads by himself? That's why he didn't go back to port!
Bomber: And what about that poor girl's leg?
Charge: They planted it!
Charge: I don't know why! I am going to take a look.
Blue Edge 2: Coast Watch, this is Blue Edge 2. We're not far from Sudbury, going to take a look. Over.
Coast Watch: Copy that, Blue Edge 2. Thanks for the assistance. Over and out.
Bomber: No Way!
Charge: You steer the ship, I'll take care of the engines.
(Charge and 2Dads walking on the docks. Charge is apologising to 2Dads for walking out on him at the last minute in their scuba diving trip where 2Dads almost died.)
Charge: If there is anything else I can do. If you ever wanna go on another dive trip, I will do it. I will make myself do it.
2Dads: I don't think I'm gonna be doing that for a while. There is one thing I've always wanted to do.
Charge: What is it?
2Dads: Just haven't found anyone to do it with.
Charge: Hey, I'm there. I'm your guy. Name it.
(2Dads walk away. Speechless, Charge looks up as if already dreading should it happen.)

Dutchy: Looks can be deceiving.
(Bird looks down, contemplating.)
Dutchy: Bird, the only reason we are still alive is because you didn't follow my instructions when I told you to run and hide.
Bird: I wanted to.
Dutchy: Which makes what you did all the more brave.
Bird: Brave? Dutchy, I have never been so scared.
Dutchy: Me neither. I'm very proud of you, Bird. You're a damn good sailor. The navy is lucky to have you.
