Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
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:
[In unison in a normal speaking tone]
Sir, yes Sir.
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
Bullshit, I can't hear you. Sound off like you got a pair!
Recruits:
[In unison, much louder]
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 grab-asstic 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?

Transcript:
Do we love our beloved Corps, ladies?
Semper fi, do or die.
Gung ho. Gung ho. Gung ho.
What makes the grass grow?
Blood, blood, blood.
What do we do for a living, ladies?
Kill, kill, kill.
I can't hear you.
Kill, kill, kill.
Bullshit. I still can't hear you.
Kill, kill, kill.
Do any of you people know
who Charles Whitman was?
None of you dumb-asses knows?
Private Cowboy.
Sir, he was that guy who shot all those
people from that tower in Austin, Texas, sir.
That's affirmative.
Charles Whitman killed 1 2 people...
... from a 28-story observation tower
at the University of Texas.
From distances of up to 400 yards.
Anybody know
who Lee Harvey Oswald was?
Private Snowball.
Sir, he shot Kennedy, sir.
That's right.
And do you know how far away he was?
Sir, he was pretty far.
From that book-suppository building, sir.
All right, knock it off.
Two hundred and fifty feet.
He was 250 feet away
and shooting at a moving target.
Oswald got off three rounds with an old
ltalian bolt-action rifle in only six seconds...
... and scored two hits,
including a head shot.
Do any of you people know where
these individuals learned how to shoot?
Private Joker.
Sir, in the Marines, sir.
In the Marines. Outstanding.
Those individuals showed what one
motivated Marine and his rifle can do.
And before you ladies leave my island...
... you will all be able
to do the same thing.
Today...
... is Christmas.
There will be a magic show at 0930.
Chaplain Charlie will tell you...
... about how the free world
will conquer communism...
... with the aid of God and a few Marines.
God has a hard-on for Marines...
... because we kill everything we see.
He plays his games...
... we play ours.
To show our appreciation
for so much power...
... we keep heaven packed
with fresh souls.
God was here before the Marine Corps.
So you can give your heart to Jesus...
... but your ass belongs to the Corps.
Do you ladies understand?
