Sergeant Eightball: No shit. At least ten times a day.
Sergeant Cowboy: Last week he was sent down to Da Nang to see the Navy head shrinker, and the crazy ****er starts jerking off in the waiting room. Instant Section Eight. He was just waiting for his papers to clear division.


Private Eightball: Believe it or not, but under fire, Animal Mother can be a wonderful human being. All he needs is somebody throwing hand grenades at him for the rest of his life.

Are you quitting on me? Well, are you?! Then quit you slimy ****ing walrus-looking piece of shit! Get the **** off my obstacle! Get the **** down off of my obstacle! Now! Move it! I'm gonna rip your balls off so you cannot contaminate the rest of the world! I will motivate you, Private Pyle, if it short-dicks every cannibal on the Congo!

Get up here, fatboy! Quickly! Move it up! Move it up, Pyle! Move it up! You climb obstacles like old people ****. Do you know that, Private Pyle? Get up here! You're too slow! Move it, move it! Private Pyle, whatever you do, don't fall down! That would break my ****ing heart!

Sergeant Joker: I wanna slip my tube steak into your sister. What'll you take in trade?
Sergeant Cowboy: What do you got?

Private Cowboy: I think what she's trying to say is that you black boys pack too much meat.

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?

I'll bet you if there was some pussy up there on top of that obstacle you could get up there! Couldn't you?! ... Your ass looks like about a hundred and fifty pounds of chewed bubble gum, Pyle. Do you know that?

Door Gunner: You should do a story about me sometime.
Sergeant Joker: Why should we do a story about you?
Door Gunner: Because I'm so ****ing good!

Private Stork: Hey, Payback, how do you stop three black dudes from raping a white chick?
Private Payback: **** you, Stork.
Private Stork: Throw them a basketball!

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.

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