[As camp fashion consultant] Thank you. I think this fall, the discerning GI is gonna be wearing green in the jungle. Why? Because it matches with the green! The leaves, they fall upon the helmets, says yes to me.


[To Srg. Major Dickerson] You know, you're in more dire need of a blowjob than any white man in history.

Know about the bombing, Sparky. No wonder you hauled ass. You were my friend. I trusted you. You hear me?

It's unbelievable. Five months in Saigon and my best friend turns out to be a VC. THIS WILL NOT LOOK GOOD ON A RESUME!

That's Marty Lee Drywitz. He's impeccably clean. This man has cleaning products shipped in from Wisconsin. He's also one of your roommates, so if I were you, I'd think about suicide.

My whole life passed before my eyes, and it wasn't even interesting to me.

It zoomed right by, just the way they say it does. Stamp collections, pulling chickweeds from my dad's dichondra plants, arranging rakes by sizes for my mom in the garage. Even encapsulated in two seconds, my life is dull. I find that very alarming.

[To Lt Hauk] Sir? I'm begging you. Don't try to do comedy. It's not in your blood.

You know, it wouldn't kill you people to salute me once in a while.

I understand you're pretty funny as a DJ, and, well comedy is a kind of hobby of mine. Well, actually, it's a little more than just a hobby. Reader's Digest is considering publishing two of my jokes.

[To Adrian] You are not funny. But you are a maniac, and you'd better start changing your life.

[About Adrian] Sir, the man is a walking keg of dynamite.

And as far as polkas, they are a much maligned musical taste.

Sir, there is no such thing as "only" anymore. Not now. Not in Saigon.

You shut your ****ing hole!
