If I'm gonna get my balls blown off for a word, my word is poontang.


If you ladies leave my island, if you survive recruit training... you will be a weapon, you will be a minister of death, praying for war. But until that day you are pukes! You're the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human ****ing beings! You are nothing but unorganized grabasstic pieces of amphibian shit! Because I am hard, you will not like me. But the more you hate me, the more you will learn. I am hard, but I am fair! There is no racial bigotry here! I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops, or greasers. Here you are all equally worthless! And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps! Do you maggots understand that?

Is that you John Wayne? Is this me?

Oh, that's right, Private Pyle... don't make any ****ing effort to get to the top of the ****ing obstacle! If God wanted you up there, He would have miracled your ass up there by now, wouldn't He?

One for the commandant! And one for the corps! Pull! Pull! *private drops from pullup bar* I guess the corps don't get theirs.

Pick 'em up and set 'em down, Pyle!

The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his rifle. It is your killer instinct which must be harnessed if you expect to survive in combat. Your rifle is only a tool. It is a hard heart that kills. If your killer instincts are not clean and strong you will hesitate at the moment of truth. You will not kill. You will become dead Marines. And then you will be in a world of shit. Because Marines are not allowed to die without permission! Do you maggots understand?

Today you people are no longer maggots. Today you are Marines. You're part of a brotherhood. [voiceover] From now on, until the day you die, wherever you are, every Marine is your brother. Most of you will go to Vietnam. Some of you will not come back. But always remember this: Marines die, that's what were here for! But the Marine Corps lives forever. And that means you live forever!

Today... is Christmas! There will be a magic show at zero-nine-thirty! Chaplain Charlie will tell you about how the free world will conquer Communism with the aid of God and a few Marines! God has a hard-on for Marines because we kill everything we see! He plays His games, we play ours! To show our appreciation for so much power, we keep Heaven packed with fresh souls! God was here before the Marine Corps! So you can give your heart to Jesus, but your ass belongs to the Corps! Do you ladies understand?

Tonight... you pukes will sleep with your rifles! You will give your rifle a girl's name! Because this is the only pussy you people are going to get! Your days of finger-banging old Mary Jane Rottencrotch through her pretty pink panties are over! You're married to this piece, this weapon of iron and wood! And you will be faithful!

Well, if you ask me, uh, we're shooting the wrong gooks.

Were you born a fat slimy scumbag, puke piece of shit, Private Pyle? Or did you have to work on it?

What is your major malfunction, numbnuts? Didn't Mommy and Daddy show you enough attention, when you were a child?!

Ya know, half of these gook whores are serving officers in the Viet Cong; the other half have got T.B. Be sure you only **** the ones that cough.

You're so ugly you could be a modern art masterpiece!
