Uttered one of my very favorite lines ever heard in a movie.

"who's the slimy little communist sh#t twinkle-toed c*#ks@cker down here who just signed his own death warrant?"

Damn he was good in that movie.

One of my favorite roles of all time. My son and I are constantly reciting lines from that movie.

I heard he was hired as a consultant on that movie, to teach an actor how to play a drill Sergeant. But when he stepped in and really cut loose to show the actor, he got the pat instead. True?

^^^^^^^ True.

The original actor hired as the drill instructor ended up being the door gunner in the chopper scene instead. GIT SUM !!!!

Doorgunner: Git some git some..... "How can you shoot women and children..?" "Easy, You just don't lead them so much..."

Gunny was the best... Rip....



Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
Are you quitting on me? Well, are you? Then quit, you slimy f*ing walrus-looking piece of sh#t. Get the f* off of my obstacle. Get the f*** down off of my obstacle. Now. Move it. I'm going to rip your balls off, so you cannot contaminate the rest of the world. I will motivate you, Private Pyle, if it short-dicks every cannibal on the Congo.

Always thought FMJ was better than Platoon.

Semper Fi, Staff Sergeant Ermy, we will see you at St. Peter's gate guarding the gates of Heaven.

FMJ WAS better than Platoon, and Firebase Gloria was better than either of them.

RIP, Marine.
