Multiple Characters quotes

Hollywood: Gutsiest move I ever saw, Mav.

Jester: That was some of the best flying I've seen to date - right up to the part where you got killed. You never, never leave your wingman.

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.

Charlie: [to Maverick] When I first met you, you were larger than life. Look at you. You're not going to be happy unless you're going Mach-2 with your hair on fire and you know it.

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

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.

Slider: [after Iceman shoots down a MiG] Splash that sucker, yeah!

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!

Stinger: Maverick, you just did an incredibly brave thing. What you should have done was land your plane! You don't own that plane, the taxpayers do! Son, your ego is writing checks your body can't cash. You've been busted, you've lost your qualifications as section leader three times, put in hack twice by me, with a history of high speed passes over five air control towers - and one admiral's daughter!
Goose: Penny Benjamin? [Maverick shrugs]
Stinger: [to Goose] And you, asshole, you're lucky to be here!
Goose: Thank you, sir.
Stinger: And let's not bullshit, Maverick. Your family name ain't the best in the Navy. You need to be doing it better and cleaner than the other guy. Now what is it with you?
Maverick: Just want to serve my country and be the best fighter pilot in the Navy, sir!
Stinger: Don't screw around with me, Maverick. You're one hell of an instinctive pilot. Maybe too good. I'd like to bust your butt but I can't. I got another problem here. I gotta send somebody from this squadron to Miramar. I gotta do something here, I still can't believe it. I gotta give you your dream shot! I'm gonna send you up against the best. You two characters, are going to Top Gun. For five weeks, you'll be flying against the best fighter pilots in the Navy. You guys were number two, Cougar was number one. Cougar lost it-turned in his wings. You guys are number one. But you remember one thing: if you screw up, just this much, you'll be flying a cargo plane full of rubber dog shit out of Hong Kong!
Maverick: Yes sir!

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.

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.

Goose: The bet is $20.
Maverick: $20.
Goose: You have to have carnal knowledge -- of a lady this time -- on the premises.
Maverick: On the premises. [sees Charlie]
Goose: Come on, Mav, a bet's a bet.
Maverick: It just doesn't seem you I mean. But, uh, she's lost that loving feeling. [starts walking toward Charlie]
Goose: She's lo... [catches up] No she hasn't.
Maverick: Yes she has.
Goose: [objecting] She's not lost that lo...
Maverick: Goose, she's lost it man. [walks off]
Goose: Come on! Aw, shit. I hate it when she does that.

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.

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.

Charlie: Excuse me, Lieutenant. Is there something wrong?
Maverick: Yes ma'am, the data on the MiG is inaccurate.
Charlie: How's that, Lieutenant?
Maverick: Well, I just happened to see a MiG 28 do a...
Goose: We!
Maverick: Uh, sorry Goose. WE happened to see a MiG 28 do a 4G negative dive.
Charlie: Where did you see this?
Maverick: Uh, that's classified.
Charlie: It's what?
Maverick: It's classified. I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.
Charlie: So, lieutenant, where exactly were you?
Maverick: Well, WE...
Goose: Thank you.
Maverick: Started up on his six, when he pulled in through the clouds, and then I moved in above him.
Charlie: Well, if you were directly above him, how could you see him?
Maverick: Because I was inverted.
Iceman: [coughs whilst saying] Bullshit.
Goose: No, he was, man, it was a really great move.
Charlie: You were in a 4G inverted dive with a Mig 28?
Maverick: Yes, ma'am.
Charlie: At what range?
Maverick: Um, about two meters.
Goose: It was actually about one and a half I think. It was one and a half. I've got a great Polaroid of it, and he's right there, must be one and a half.
Maverick: It was a nice picture.
Goose: Thanks.
Charlie: Eh, lieutenant, what were you doing there?
Goose: Communicating.
Maverick: Communicating. Keeping up foreign relations. You know, giving him the bird?
Goose: [Extending his middle finger] You know, the finger!
Charlie: Yes, I know the finger, Goose.
Goose: Sorry. I hate when it does that.
Charlie: [to Maverick] So you're the one.
Maverick: Yes, ma'am.

Maverick: Requesting permission for flyby.
Air Boss Johnson: That's a negative Ghostrider, the pattern is full.
Goose: No. No, Mav, this is not a good idea.
Maverick: Sorry Goose, but it's time to buzz the tower.

Maverick: I can see it's dangerous for you, but if the government trusts me, maybe you could.
Charlie: It takes a lot more than just fancy flying.

Goose: Yeeha, Jester's dead!
Wolfman: Won? That's bullshit!
Goose: Didn't everybody?
Hollywood: Hell no, man. We got our butts kicked.
Wolfman: Thirty seconds. We went like this, he went like that. I said to Hollywood, "Where'd he go?" Hollywood says, "Where'd who go?"
Hollywood: Yeah, and he's laughing at us, right on the radio, he's laughing at us.
Slider: No, it's me laughing, dickhead. We won!
Pilots: All right! [Handshakes exchanged]
Wolfman: They won too, man. [points to Maverick and Goose]
Iceman: That's not what I heard.
Goose: We did man. We got Jester-
Slider: No, no, below the hard deck does not count.
Maverick: Hard deck my ass. We nailed that son of a bitch. [gives Goose a high five]
Iceman: Wow, you guys really are cowboys.
Maverick: [Suddenly faces Iceman] What's your problem, Kazanski?
Iceman: [Slams helmet locker's door and faces Maverick] You're everyone's problem. That's because every time you go up in the air, you're unsafe. I don't like you because you're dangerous.
Maverick: That's right! I am dangerous. [Iceman bites]
Jester: Maverick. [Maverick and Goose look at him], you and Goose get your butts outta that flight gear and up to Viper's office now. [Heads out of the locker room]
Slider: Remember, boys, no points for second place.
Goose: You're a lot brighter than you look-
Slider: Oh, you shut up.

Jester: [discussing Maverick] His health report says it all: he's a wild card. Flys by the seat of his pants, completely unpredictable.
Viper: He got you, didn't he?
Jester: [sarcastically] Yeah.
Viper: Maverick. I flew with his old man. Let me ask you something, if you had to go into battle, would you want him on you side?
Jester: I don't know, I just don't know.

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.

Wolfman: [Watching a video of planes being shot down] This gives me a hard on.
Hollywood: Don't tease me.

Viper: [Discussing Maverick] Let me ask you something, if you had to go into battle, would you want him with you?
Jester: I don't know. I just don't know.

Carole: Hey Goose you big stud!
Goose: That's me, honey.
Carole: Take me to bed or lose me forever.
Goose: Show me the way home, honey.

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.

Goose: It's the bottom of the 9th, the score is tied its time for the big one.
Iceman: You think you can handle that Maverick?
Maverick: It's just a walk in the park Kazanski.

[Charlie has just given Maverick her address while pretending to turn down his date offer]
Slider: Crashed and burned! Huh, Mav?
Maverick: Hey, Slider. [sniffs] You stink!
[Slider sniffs his armpit, while Sundown laughs]

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.

Maverick: I feel the need...
Maverick, Goose: ...the need for speed! Note: ranked #94 in the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema.

[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.

[At Viper's house, Viper and Maverick take a stroll]
Viper: I flew with your old man. VF-51, the Oriskany. You're a lot like he was. Only better... and worse. He was a natural heroic son of a bitch that one.
Maverick: So he DID do it right.
Viper: Yeah, he did right. Is that why you fly the way you do? Trying to prove something? Yeah your old man did it right. What I'm about to tell you is classified and it could end my career. We were in the worst dogfight I could've dreamed of. There were bogeys like fireflies all over the sky. His F-4 was hit; he was wounded, but he could've made it back. He stayed in it; saved three planes before he bought it.
Maverick: How come I never heard that before?
Viper: Well that's not something the State Department tells its dependants when the battle occurred over the wrong line on some map.
Maverick: So you were there?
Viper: I was there. What's on your mind?
Maverick: My options, Sir.
Viper: Simple. First you've acquired enough points to show up and graduate with your Top Gun class, or you can quit. There'll be no disgrace. That spin was hell; it would've shook me up.
Maverick: So you think I should quit?
Viper: I didn't say that. The simple fact is you feel responsible for Goose and you have a confidence problem. Now I'm not gonna sit here and blow sunshine up your ass, Lieutenant. A good pilot is compelled to always evaluate what's happened, so he can apply what he's learned. Up there, we gotta push it...that's our job. It's your option Lieutenant. All yours.
Maverick: Sorry to bother you on a Sunday, Sir, but thank you very much for your time.
Viper: No problem. Good luck.

Merlin: [as they are being chased by a MiG] What are you doing? You're slowing down, you're slowing down!
Maverick: I'm bringing the MiG closer, Merlin.
Merlin: You're gonna do WHAT?

[At the carrier, in the midst of the MiG battle, Stinger asks the status of the reinforcement planes]
Stinger: What about Wilder and Simpkin?
Officer: Both catapults are broken sir, we cannot launch any aircraft yet.
Stinger: How long?
Officer: It'll take ten minutes.
Stinger: Bullshit ten minutes! This thing will be over in TWO minutes, get on it!

Iceman: You! You are still dangerous. [smiles] You can be my wingman any time.
Maverick: Bullshit! You can be mine.

Stinger: They gave you your choice of duty son, anything, anywhere. Do you believe that shit? Where do you think you wanna go?
Maverick: I thought of being an instructor, sir.
Stinger: [spews cigar smoke into Maverick's face] TOP GUN?!?
Maverick: [coughs slightly] Yes, sir.
Stinger: God help us. [starts chuckling]

Charlie: Hello, Pete Mitchell. I heard the best of the best were going to be back here, so uh...
Maverick: This could be complicated. You know on the first one I crashed and burned.
Charlie: And the second.
Maverick: I don't know, but uh, it's looking good so far.
