Lynette Pomeroy: [last lines] Way to go, Paula! Way to go!

Paula Porkrifki: You know something, you ain't nothing special. You got no manners, you treat women like whores, and if you ask me, you got ne chance of being no officer.

Byron Mayo: I'm out at sea three weeks out of every month, and when I'm back at port, I don't have time for this daddy stuff, 'cause that's not who I am.
Young Zack Mayo: That's okay, sir.
Byron: Wait a second, kid, you don't understand. I'm too old for this. I don't care what the Navy says. This is no place to bring up a kid like I told you on the telephone. You're better of at that state school back at Virginia.
Young Zack: I'm never going back there. They treat me like shit.
Byron: Maybe that's not for you to say. Goddamnit, don't look at me that way. What happened to your mother had nothing to do with me.
Young Zack: It did. You said you were gonna come back. You promised.
Byron: Is that what she said? That's a female lie. That's bullshit! That a lie!
Young Zack: I found your letters. I read them right after she did it. You said you were gonna come back for us. You said you loved her, and she believed you. You're a liar!

GySgt. Emil Foley: Get into your fatigues, Mayo. By the end of this weekend, you'll quit.

GySgt. Emil Foley: You can forget it! You're out!

Paula Pokrifki: Zack, when you're through with a girl, what do you do? Do you you say something or do you just...disappear?
Zack Mayo: I never had a girl.

Sid Worley: Lynette, marry me. Make me the happiest man in the whole world.
Lynette Pomeroy: I'm sorry, Sid, but I don't wanna marry you. I really like you. We've had ourselves some really great times, but I thought you understood. I want to marry a pilot. I want to live my life overseas. The wife of an aviator...[bitterly] Damn you! Goddamn you! Nobody DOR's after 11 weeks! NOBODY!

Zack Mayo: You didn't kick him out, did you? Wait, sir! Didn't he tell you what he's been going through?

Zack Mayo: There's this girl that he's gotten pregnant, and she's putting him through hell, sir.
Sid Worley: He's right, Zack. It doesn't matter.

GySgt Emil Foley: It can still happen to you too, Mayo-naise.
Zack Mayo: I am talking to you, mother****er!
GySgt. Emil Foley: What did you call me?
