Quotes from the Movie Full Metal Jacket

You're so ugly you could be a modern art masterpiece!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman

Tonight... you pukes will sleep with your rifles! You will give your rifle a girl's name! Because this is the only pussy you people are going to get! Your days of finger-banging old Mary Jane Rottencrotch through her pretty pink panties are over! You're married to this piece, this weapon of iron and wood! And you will be faithful!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman

I'll bet you if there was some pussy up there on top of that obstacle you could get up there! Couldn't you?! ... Your ass looks like about a hundred and fifty pounds of chewed bubble gum, Pyle. Do you know that?

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman

Pick 'em up and set 'em down, Pyle!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman

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

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman

Do you feel dizzy? Do you feel faint? Jesus H. Christ, I think you've got a hard-on!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman

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?

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman

Today... is Christmas! There will be a magic show at zero-nine-thirty! Chaplain Charlie will tell you about how the free world will conquer Communism with the aid of God and a few Marines! God has a hard-on for Marines because we kill everything we see! He plays His games, we play ours! To show our appreciation for so much power, we keep Heaven packed with fresh souls! God was here before the Marine Corps! So you can give your heart to Jesus, but your ass belongs to the Corps! Do you ladies understand?

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman

Today you people are no longer maggots. Today you are Marines. You're part of a brotherhood. [voice only] From now on, until the day you die, wherever you are, every Marine is your brother. Most of you will go to Vietman. Some of you will not come back. But always remember this: Marines die, that's what were here for! But the Marine Corps lives forever. And that means you live forever!

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman

Is that you John Wayne? Is this me?

Private Joker

Paris Island, South Carolina. The Marine Corps Training Depot. An eight-week college for the phony tough and the crazy brave.

Private Joker

The dead have been covered with lime. The dead know only one thing: it is better to be alive.

Private Joker

I wanted to see exotic Vietnam... the crown jewel of Southeast Asia. I wanted to meet interesting and stimulating people of an ancient culture... and kill them. I wanted to be the first kid on my block to get a confirmed kill!

Private Joker

A day without blood is like a day without sunshine.

Private Joker

These are great days we're living, bros. We are jolly green giants, walking the Earth with guns. These people we wasted here today are the finest human beings we will ever know. After we rotate back to the world, we're gonna miss not having anyone around that's worth shooting.

Crazy Earl

You know there's not a single horse in the entire country of Vietnam? There's definitely something wrong with that.

Private Cowboy

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

Private Cowboy

If I'm gonna get my balls blown off for a word, my word is poontang.

Animal Mother

Well, if you ask me, uh, we're shooting the wrong gooks.

Animal Mother

Anyone who runs is a V.C.! Anyone who stands still... is a well-disciplined V.C.!

Door Gunner

Hey, you got girlfriend Vietnam? Not just this minute! Me so horny. Me love you long time.

Da Nang Hooker

What we have here, little yellow sister, is a magnificent specimen of pure Alabama Blacksnake. But it ain't too goddamned beaucoup.

Private Eightball

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.

Private Eightball

Believe it or not, but under fire, Animal Mother can be a wonderful human being. All he needs is somebody throwing grenades at him 'til the end of his life.

Private Eightball
