Gunnery Sergeant Hartman (R. Lee Ermey): "I am Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, your senior drill instructor. From now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and last words out of your filthy sewers will be sir. Do you maggots understand that?" Recruits: "Sir, yes sir!" Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: "Bullshit I can't hear you. Sound off like you got a pair." Recruits: "SIR, YES SIR!" 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 grabtastic 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. There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops or greasers. Here you are all equally worthless. And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the gear to serve in my beloved Corps. Do you maggots understand that?" Recruits: "Sir, yes sir!" Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: "Bullshit I can't hear you." Recruits: "SIR, YES SIR!"
