Goose: [as Maverick is looking around the room] What are you doing?
Maverick: Just wondering who's the best.
Viper: In case some of you are wondering who the best is, they're up here on this plaque on the wall. The best driver and his RIO from each class has his name on it, and they have the option to come back here to be Top Gun instructors.[turns to Maverick]
Viper: Do you think your name's gonna be on that plaque, Lieutenant?
Maverick: Yes, sir.
Viper: That's pretty arrogant, considering the company you're in.
Maverick: [pauses] Yes, sir.
Viper: [smiles] I like that in a pilot. Just remember, when it's over out there, we're all on the same team.


Merlin: Mustang, this is Voodoo 3. Remaining MiGs are bugging out.

Goose: Hey, Slider! I thought you wanted to be a pilot, man, what happened?
Slider: Goose, you're such a dickhead. Whose butt did you kiss to get in here, huh?
Goose: The list is long, but distinguished.
Slider: Yeah, well so's my Johnson.

Charlie: Listen, can I ask you a personal question?
Maverick: That depends.
Charlie: Are you a good pilot?
Maverick: I can hold my own.
Charlie: Great, then I won't have to worry about you making your living as a singer. [walks away]
Maverick: I'm going to need a beer to put these flames out. Yo! Great Mav, real slick.

Carole: God, he loved flying with you Maverick. But he would've done it anyway... without you. He'd have hated it, but he would've done it.

Maverick: [as Charlie screeches to a halt after chasing Maverick on his motorcycle] JESUS CHRIST, AND YOU THINK I'M RECKLESS? WHEN I FLY, I'LL HAVE YOU KNOW THAT MY CREW, AND MY PLANE COME FIRST!
Charlie: Well, I am going to [bangs the car's door] FINISH MY SENTENCE, LIEUTENANT! My review of your flight performance was RIGHT ON!
Maverick: Is that right?
Charlie: That's right, but I held something back. I see some real genius in your flying, Maverick, but I can't say that in there. I was afraid that everyone in the tax trailer would see right through me, and I just don't want anyone to know that I've fallen for you.

Cougar: God dammit, Mustang! This is Ghost Rider 117, this bogey is all over me. He's got missile lock on me. Do I have permission to fire?
Stinger: Do not fire until fired upon!

Charlie: [In the ladies' room] What do you wanna do? Just drop down on the tile and go for it?
Maverick: No, actually I had this counter in mind.
Charlie: Great, that would be very, very comfortable, yeah.
Maverick: It could be.

Lieutenant Mitchell, Top Gun rules of engagement are written for your safety and for that of your team. They are not flexible, nor am I. Either obey them...or you're history, is that clear?

Stinger: [to Maverick after the last dogfight] How's it feel to be on the front page of every newspaper in the English-speaking world, even though the other side denies the incident? Congratulations.

[to Cougar and Merlin while flying alongside them] Any of you boys seen an aircraft carrier around here?

Gentlemen. You are the top one percent of all Naval aviators. The elite. Best of the best. We'll make you better.

Maverick: [as they enter the bar] This is what I call a target rich environment.
Goose: You live your life between your legs Mav.
Maverick: Goose, even you could get laid in a place like this.
Goose: Hell, I'd be happy to just find a girl that would talk dirty to me.

Viper: Good morning, gentlemen, the temperature is 110 degrees.
Wolfman: Holy shit, it's Viper!
Goose: Viper's up here, great...oh shit...
Maverick: Great, he's probably saying, "Holy shit, it's Maverick and Goose."
Goose: Yeah, I'm sure he's saying that.

[After Maverick's crash, Viper chances upon him at a rest room]
Viper: How ya doin?
Maverick: I'm all right.
Viper: Goose is dead.
Maverick: I know.
Viper: You fly jets long enough, something like this happens.
Maverick: He was my RIO, my responsibility.
Viper: My squadron in Vietnam lost eight of 18 aircraft. Ten men. First one dies you die too, but there will be others. You can count on that. You gotta let him go. You gotta let him go.
