On the ship to shore radio:

SHIP: “Please divert your course 15 degrees to the north to avoid a collision.”

SHORE: “Recommend that you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.”

SHIP: “This is the Captain of a U.S. Navy ship. I say again divert YOUR course.”

SHORE: “No, I say again you divert YOUR course.”

SHIP: “This is the aircraft carrier Enterprise, we are a large warship of the U.S. Navy. Divert your course NOW!”

SHORE: “This is a lighthouse. Your call.”
