Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: We still got time for a beer.
Gunner's Mate First Class Richard "Mule" Mulhall: Now wait a minute, man...
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: I ain't old enough.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Ain't old enough for what?
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: For a beer.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Everybody's old enough for a beer. Ain't that right, Mule?
Gunner's Mate First Class Richard "Mule" Mulhall: Yeah.

Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: I am the motherfucking shore patrol, motherfucker! I am the motherfucking shore patrol! Give this man a beer.
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: I don't want a beer.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: You're gonna have a fuckin' beer!

Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: Hey, you guys mind if I say somethin'? That guy at the bar, why did you get so mad at him? I don't blame him not givin' me a beer.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Hey, don't you never get mad at nobody?
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: Well, sure I do, yeah.
Gunner's Mate First Class Richard "Mule" Mulhall: Who do you get mad at?
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: Not at somebody who's doing their job.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Who, then?
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: Injustice.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Bullshit! You never get mad at nobody. You're just a pussy!
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: I do too get mad.
Gunner's Mate First Class Richard "Mule" Mulhall: Did you ever get mad at the old man for what he done to you?
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: Well, he was just...
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: ...doin' his job. Hey, they're gonna take eight years outta your life, man.
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: Six years. You said six!
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Hey, what the fuck difference does it make? You don't even care about it.
Gunner's Mate First Class Richard "Mule" Mulhall: Come on, Badass, that don't help him.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Fuck help, fuck fair! Fuck injustice! Don't you ever just wanna fuckin' whomp and stomp on someone, bite off their ear, just to do it...? I mean just to do it, just to get it out of your system?

Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Now don't worry about a thing. I'm hustling this guy, you understand? I got him right where I want him.
Gunner's Mate First Class Richard "Mule" Mulhall: Maybe he's hustling you.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Yeah. Maybe he is, but, uh, this is not the time to argue about because if I don't win, we don't leave New York, huh?

Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: [looking at porn] Are they really doing that when they take that picture?
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: [pause] Well kid, there's more things in this life than you can possibly imagine. I knew a whore once in Wilmington. She had a glass eye... used to take it out and wink people off for a dollar.

Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: If this kid gets pussy out of this, I'll eat my fucking flat hat, man.

Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: If you're Catholic, do you think it's, uh, sacrilegious to chant?
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Did it get you laid?
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: No.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Then Meadows, what the fuck do you want to go on chanting for?
Gunner's Mate First Class Richard "Mule" Mulhall: Chant your ass off, kid. But any pussy you get in this world, you gonna have to pay for, one way or another.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Hallelujah!

Young Whore: Jesus Christ! That's what I call quick.
'Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows has just prematurely ejaculated.

Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: Yeah.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: [to prostitute] Okay, honey.
Gunner's Mate First Class Richard "Mule" Mulhall: Don't worry about it, kid... plenty more where that came from.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: We got all night, kid.

Gunner's Mate First Class Richard "Mule" Mulhall: You ever been married?
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: Not so you'd notice.

Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: After... after... well maybe it was an act for her. I mean I know she was a whore. B ut I think she liked me.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: They got feelings just like everybody else, kid; she probably did.
Seaman Laurence M. "Larry" Meadows: Well, it was real for me. That's what counts.

Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: He don't stand a chance in Portsmouth, you know. You know that, don't you? Goddamn grunts, kickin' the shit outta him for eight years... he don't stand a chance.
Gunner's Mate First Class Richard "Mule" Mulhall: I don't want to hear about it.
Signalman First Class Billy L. "Badass" Buddusky: "Maggot" this, "maggot" that... Marines are really assholes, you know that? It takes a certain kind of a sadistic temperament to be a Marine.
