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?


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

[narrating] My thoughts drift back to erect nipple wet dreams about Mary Jane Rottencrotch and the Great Homecoming **** Fantasy. I am so happy that I am alive, in one piece, and short. I'm in a world of shit... yes. But I am alive. And I am not afraid.

Private Eightball: [being interviewed] Personally, I think, uh... they don't really want to be involved in this war. You know, I mean... they sort of took away our freedom and gave it to the, to the gookers, you know. But they don't want it. They'd rather be alive than free, I guess. Poor dumb bastards.

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!

Private Cowboy: Don't shit me, man!
Private Joker: I wouldn't shit you. You're my favorite turd!

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

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!

Sergeant Joker: How can you shoot women and children?
Door Gunner: Easy... you don't lead 'em so much. [laughs] Ain't war hell?

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?

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

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.

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

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?
