The clip closing the fuel cells from Apollo 13 (1995) with Bill Paxton, Ed Harris

We keep venting, we're gonna keep hitting the edge of that deadband.
Take a look at the O2 on number one.
200 pounds and falling.
O2 tank two still zero.
Tank one: 218 psi and falling.
Is that what you're gettin'? Confirm.
We're seeing the same, 13.
Can we review our status, Sy?
Let's look at this thing from a standpoint of status.
What have we got on the spacecraft that's good?
I'll get back to you, Gene.
We're not gonna have power much longer.
The ship's bleedin' to death.
Flight?
Yeah. Go, EECOM.
Um, Flight, I recommend we shut down the reactant valves of the fuel cells.
What the hell good is that gonna do?
If that's where the leak is, we can isolate it.
We can isolate it there, save what's left in the tanks, and we can run on the good cell.
You close 'em, you can't open 'em again.
You can't land on the moon with one healthy fuel cell.
Gene, the Odyssey is dying.
From my chair here, this is the last option.
Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, okay, Sy.
CAPCOM, let's have them close the reactant valves.
Thirteen, this is Houston.
We want you to close react valves on cells one and three. Do you copy?
