10 quotes

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Where in the hell are you from anyway, private?
Private: Sir, Texas, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Holy dog shit, Texas! Only steers and queers come from Texas, private Cowboy! And you don't look much like a steer to me so that kinda narrows it down.

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: If you ladies leave my island, if you survive recruit training, you will be a weapon. You will be a minister of death praying for war. But until that day you are pukes. You are the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human fucking beings. You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian shit. Because I am hard you will not like me, but the more you hate me the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair.

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Private Joker is silly and ignorant, but he's got guts. And guts is enough.

Pvt. Joker: How could you shoot women, children?
Helicopter gunner: Easy. Ya just don't lead 'em so much. Hahaha. Ain't war hell?

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: You had best un-fuck yourself or I will unscrew your head and shit down your neck!

Private: Sir, five foot nine, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: Five foot nine, I didn't know they stacked shit that high!

Pvt. Joker: Are those live rounds Leonard?
Pvt. Pyle: 7.62 millimeter. Full metal jacket.

Helicopter gunner: Anyone that runs is V.C. Anyone that stands still is well disciplined V.C.

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: 250 feet. He was 250 feet away and shooting at a moving target. Oswald got off three rounds with an old Italian bolt action rifle in only six seconds, and scored two hits, including a head shot.

Trivia

Ermey was convinced that the scenes in boot camp wouldn't be believable unless the actors were actually frightened of him. According to the commentary on the blu-ray, when he was acting as the technical adviser and training them to drill, or whatever he was training them to do, he never raised his voice. As soon as the camera was rolling, he started screaming at the actors. Much to Ermey's pleasure, the fear you see on the screen is real. Many times in the shooting the actors would become so flustered by Ermey that they would blow their lines. Ermey recalls that he's seen the other actors in the film around Hollywood from time to time, and they still won't speak to him.
