We've all repeated them, quoted them, and re-watched a favorite movie just to see them again... yes, we're talking about those defining military-related movie lines! In a few other threads we've discussed various military movie-related topics, so the idea here is a thread dedicated specifically to those iconic and infectious "movie lines" that seem to make their way into our daily conversations. It could be something profound, catchy, interesting/ thought provoking, or just plain entertaining or funny. It could have been from a movie that was military-related, military-themed, or something else altogether... but is somehow applicable to the military experience or life from the military perspective. The sky is the limit here, so dig deep and let's hear your best-of-the-best military-related movie lines! Now, fasten your seat-belts and let's get this thing started; thank you for all that you do, and... see you all in the discussion threads!

From We were Soldiers---- Lt. Colonel Hal Moore: Oh, yes, and one more thing, dear Lord, about our enemies, ignore their heathen prayers and help us blow those little bastards straight to Hell. Amen.

The best one in my opinion is when all the fighting is over.

CSM Plummer: You wanna know how Custer felt, go ask him.

Along the lines of CSM Plumley, I'd have to say my favorite was "Sir, Custer was a p#$%y, you ain't"

You have to include the line from "Good Morning Vietnam" where Robin Williams (playing Airman Adrian Cronauer) is getting chewed out by SGM Dickerson:


Dickerson: Sir! Do you see anything on this uniform indicating an officer? [Pointing to his rank insignia] What does three up and three down mean to you, Airman?Adrian: End of an inning?

"I love the smell of napalm in the morning", "Good morning Vietnam" and of course "Kill'em all and let God sort them out" (do not know if that is from a military movie)

That last one traces back several centuries to Arnaud Amalric, the Abbot of Citeaux, PO2 Michael Berry.
Prior to the sacking (and massacre) of Béziers in 1209, the soldiers asked the abbot how to distinguish the Catholics from the heretics in the city. His response was reported to be "Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius." ("Kill them all for the Lord knoweth them that are His")

PO2 Michael Berry - "I love the smell of napalm in the morning, smells like victory". From Apocalypse now, and I still use a version of it when we win a rivalry football game

Not really military but also from Good Morning Vietnam. "You're in more dire need of a blow job than any white man in history"
