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 fair...to 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.


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! Ice...man. 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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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: [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: [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.

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?

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!

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]

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.

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.
