If you know of any good ones, please do not hesitate to post them!
If I say it's safe to surf this beach, Captain, then it's safe to surf this beach!
You either surf or you fight.
What the hell do you know about surfing, Major? You're from god damned New Jersey.
Charlie don't surf!
We use Wagner. My boys love it. It scares the hell outta' the slopes.
Don't these people ever give up?
Outstanding, Red Team, outstanding! Getcha a case of beer for that one.
Lance Johnson the surfer?
You can take that boat anywhere that suits you, young captain.
I will not hurt or harm you. Just give me back the board, Lance. It was a good board – and I like it. You know how hard it is to find a board you like. (repeated over helicopter loudspeaker)
You smell that? Do you smell that? Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for twelve hours. When it was all over I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like … victory.
Someday this war's gonna end …
Unass that shit, get it out of here.
Any man brave enough to fight with his guts strapped on him can drink from my canteen anyday.
