Jack Swigert:
I've been going over the numbers again. Have they called up with a reentry plan yet? 'Cause we're coming in too shallow, we're coming in too damn fast.

Jim Lovell:
We're working on it, just hold on.

Jack Swigert:
Listen, they gave us too much delta vee, they had us burn too long. At this rate, we're going to skip out of the atmosphere and we're never going to get home.

Fred Haise, Sr.:
What are you talking about? How'd you figure that?

Jack Swigert:
I can add.

Jim Lovell:
They've got half the Ph.D.'s on the planet working on it.

Fred Haise, Sr.:
They say we're right on the money.

Jack Swigert:
And what if they had made a mistake and there was no way to correct it, why would they tell us? There's no reason to tell us!

Fred Haise, Sr.:
What do you mean they're not going to tell us? That's bullshit!

Jim Lovell:
Now listen, there's a thousand things that have to happen in order. We are on number eight. You're talking about number six hundred and ninety-two.

Jack Swigert:
And in the meantime, I'm trying to tell you we're coming in too fast. I think they know it, and I think that's why we don't have a God-damned reentry plan.

Jim Lovell:
That's duly noted, thank you Jack.
