"The Statue of Liberty is kaput" - that's disconcerting.

Captain Miller

Sergeant Horvath: Captain, if your mother saw you do that, she'd be very upset.
Captain Miller: I thought *you* were my mother.

Sergeant Horvath: That's quite a view.
Captain Miller: Yes it is. Quite a view.

Blessed be the Lord my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight.

Private Jackson

Corporal Upham: Uh, Caparzo, right?
Private Caparzo: Hey Corporal, drop dead! And another thing, whenever you salute the Captain you make him an open target for the Germans so don't do it, especially when I'm standing near him!

I just know that every man I kill, the farther away from home I feel.

Captain Miller

Captain Miller: [Approaching the beach] Port side stick, starboard side stick, move fast and clear those murder holes.
Sergeant Horvath: I wanna see plenty of beach between men. Five men is a juicy opportunity, one man's a waste of ammo.
Captain Miller: Keep the sand out of your weapons, keep those actions clear. I'll see you on the beach.

Private Reiben: Well, maybe not the captain, but the rest of us got mothers.
Upham: "Theirs not to reason why, theirs but to do and die."
Mellish: La-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la. What the fuck is that supposed to mean, Corporal, huh? We're all supposed to die, is that it?
Captain Miller: Upham's talking about our duty as soldiers.
Upham: Yes, sir.
Captain Miller: We all have orders, and we have to follow 'em. That supersedes everything, including your mothers.
Upham: Yes, sir. Thank you sir.
Private Reiben: Even if you think the mission's FUBAR, sir?
Captain Miller: *Especially* if you think the mission's FUBAR.

Picture a girl who took a nosedive from the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

Private Reiben: I got a bad feeling about this one.
Captain Miller: When was the last time you felt good about anything?

Private Jackson: O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.

You don't know when to shut up; you don't know HOW to shut up!
