The Most Memorable 'Greyhound' Quotes

July 10, 2020 287 votes 50 voters17 items

Now is your opportunity to vote for the best Greyhound quotes. You won't find any funny lines in this movie. It's a very serious WWII drama. There are, however, a number of rousing one liners and thrilling bits of dialogue.

Tom Hanks stars as Captain Ernest Krause. For the first time, he's in charge of a destroyer ship. His mission is to guide a convoy of Allied ships across the Atlantic. During a section known as "the Black Pit," they have no air support, so when a wolf pack of German U-boats starts hunting them, it's up to Krause to find a way to outmaneuver them and keep as many of the ships (and men) as safe as possible. Helping him out is his expert navigator, Charlie Cole (Stephen Graham). Krause hopes to make it home safely so that he can marry his girlfriend Evelyn (Elisabeth Shue).

In addition to starring, Hanks wrote the screenplay for Greyhound. The film was directed by Aaron Schneider, who previously directed 2009's Get Low. The supporting cast includes Rob Morgan as the ship's cook, Cleveland, and Hanks's son Chet as one of the crew members.
