Pogue Colonel:
Marine, what is that button on your body armor?
Private Joker:
A peace symbol, sir.
Pogue Colonel:
Where'd you get it?
Private Joker:
I don't remember, sir.
Pogue Colonel:
What is that you've got written on your helmet?
Private Joker:
"Born to Kill", sir.
Pogue Colonel:
You write "Born to Kill" on your helmet and you wear a peace button. What's that supposed to be, some kind of sick joke?
Private Joker:
No, sir.
Pogue Colonel:
You'd better get your head and your ass wired together, or I will take a giant shit on you.
Private Joker:
Yes, sir.
Pogue Colonel:
Now answer my question or you'll be standing tall before the man.
Private Joker:
I think I was trying to suggest something about the duality of man, sir.
Pogue Colonel:
The what?
Private Joker:
The duality of man. The Jungian thing, sir.
Pogue Colonel:
Whose side are you on, son?
Private Joker:
Our side, sir.
Pogue Colonel:
Don't you love your country?
Private Joker:
Yes, sir.
Pogue Colonel:
Then how about getting with the program? Why don't you jump on the team and come on in for the big win?
Private Joker:
Yes, sir.
Pogue Colonel:
Son, all I've ever asked of my marines is that they obey my orders as they would the word of God. We are here to help the Vietnamese, because inside every gook there is an American trying to get out. It's a hardball world, son. We've gotta keep our heads until this peace craze blows over.
Private Joker:
Aye-aye, sir.

What is that, Private Pyle?
Sir, a jelly doughnut, sir!
-Where did you get it?
-From the mess hall, sir!
Is chow allowed in the barracks, Pyle?
Are you allowed to eat
jelly doughnuts, Private?
-Why not, Private?
-Sir, because I'm too heavy, sir!
Because you are a disgusting fatbody,
Private Pyle!
Then why did you hide a jelly doughnut
in your footlocker?
Because I was hungry, sir!
Because you were hungry?
Private Pyle...
...has dishonored himself
and dishonored the platoon!
I have tried to help him,
but I have failed!
I have failed because
you have not helped me!
You people...
...have not given Private Pyle
the proper motivation!
From now on,
whenever Private Pyle fucks up...
...l will not punish him.
I will punish all of you!
And the way I see it, ladies...
...you owe me for one jelly doughnut!
Get on your faces!
Open your mouth!
They're paying for it, you eat it!
Ready, exercise!
"One, two, three, four!
"I love the Marine Corps! "
You really look like shit today.
Everybody hates me now.
Even you.
Nobody hates you, Leonard.
You just keep making mistakes,
getting everybody in trouble.
I can't do anything right.
I need help.
I'm trying to help you.
I'm really trying.
Tuck your shirt in.
