English term or phrase:Now there goes some real finesse
En un barco de rescate se anuncia que hay que hacer una operación de rescate:
Quick cuts of faces listening, then looking around in confusion. However, a group of (5),including Private Jack McMillan, slowly start making their way out of the room. Jack quietly leaves his tray and makes his way. We look over the shoulders of Brock to Weaver.
LIEUTANANT WEAVER: My good man Officer Brock, let me assure you of one thing. There will be no "rescue" operation.
(Officer Brock's face is the model of shock and surprise and everyone in the room freezes.) Think! Do you know who takes their ship out in this kind of weather? Those who wish to remain unnoticed! So if some group of drug runners have run afoul I will be the last to risk life and limb to save them. Devils all of them!
PETTY OFFICER DEREK BROCK: But, but, but Sir, this boat after all….
LIEUTANANT WEAVER (quickly interrupts): ...I know perfectly well the purpose of this vessel! Do you wish to have
us all killed!
PETTY OFFICER DEREK BROCK: N, no, no Sir all..
LIEUTANANT WEAVER: The whole purpose of being inside such a boat as this (imitates Brock's accent - to Weaver this is a vessel) is that it protects you from the outside.
(stares at Brock with a pause and says) Is this not clear to you Officer Brock?
PETTY OFFICER DEREK BROCK (nervously): Well, maybe, maybe perhaps not, sir, sorry, sir
(Officer Brock quickly turns around to the door and joins Jack and the others. Lt. Weaver sees Jack.)
LIEUTANANT WEAVER: Seaman McMillan, is that you I see joining the wise men?
(Jack hesitates - but then slowly walks on without looking back.)
LIEUTANANT WEAVER: ***Now there goes some real finesse***.
