TOP TOP GUN QUOTES

  1. Goose: Come on Mav, do some of that pilot shit!
  2. Iceman: You two really are Cowboys.
    Maverick: What's your problem, Kazansky? Iceman: You're everyone's problem. That's because when you go up in the air, you're unsafe. You're dangerous. Maverick: That's right! Ice... man. [BITES THE AIR] I am dangerous.
  3. Stinger: And if you screw up just this much, you'll be flying a cargo plane full of rubber dog shit outta Hong Kong.
  4. Maverick: Because I was... [turns hand over] inverted.
  5. Charlie: You were in a 4G inverted dive with a MiG28?
    Maverick: Yes ma'am. Charlie: At what range? Maverick: Um, about two meters. Goose: It was actually about one and a half I think. It was one and a half. I've got a great Polaroid of it and he's right there. Must be one and a half.
  6. Maverick: You don't have time to think up there... if you think [contemplative pause] you're dead.
  7. Viper: Good morning gentlemen, the temperature is 110 degrees.
    Wolfman: Holy shit it's Viper! Goose: Viper's up here... great... oh shit! Maverick: Great, he's probably saying "Holy shit it's Maverick and Goose!" Goose: Yeah I'm sure he's saying that.
  8. Tower: Negative Ghostrider, the pattern is full.
  9. Stinger: Maverick, you just did an incredibly brave thing. What you should have done was land your plane! You don't own that plane, the tax payers do! Son, your ego is writing checks your body can't cash.
    ...You've been busted, you lost your qualifications as section leader three times, put in hack twice by me, with a history of high speed passes over five air control towers, and one admiral's daughter! Goose: Penny Benjamin? [the Penny Benjamin line is often lost by the pure fury of the ego checks/body cash line, but IMHO the Penny Benjamin moment is the best in the whole movie]
  10. Viper: That's pretty arrogant considering the company you're in.
    Maverick: Yes, sir. Viper: I like that in a pilot.
  11. Maverick: Too close for missiles I'm switching to guns.
  12. Charlie: What do you want to do? Just drop down on the tile and go for it?
    Maverick: No, actually I had this counter in mind. Charlie: Great, that would be very, very comfortable. Maverick: It could be. [I think it pretty empirically demonstrable that it would not be comfortable]
  13. Goose: The defense department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid.
  14. Slider: Goose, whose butt did you kiss to get in here?
    Goose: The list is long, but distinguished. Slider: Yeah, well so is my Johnson.
  15. Air Boss Johnson: TWO OF YOUR SNOT NOSE JOCKEYS DID A FLY BY ON MY TOWER AT OVER 400 KNOTS! I WANT SOMEBODY'S BUTT, I WANT IT NOW! I'VE HAD IT!
    *knocks into dude and spills coffee again* DAMN THATS TWICE! I WANT SOME BUTTS!
  16. Maverick: I'm bringing him in closer Merlin.
    Merlin: YOU'RE GONNA DO WHAT?!
  17. Iceman: The plaque for the alternates is down in the ladies room.
  18. Maverick: I can see it's dangerous for you, but if the government trusts me, maybe you could.
    Charlie: It takes a lot more than just fancy flying.
  19. Slider: SPLASH THAT SUCKER, YEAH!
  20. Maverick: Any of you boys seen an aircraft carrier around here?
  21. Maverick: This is what I call a target-rich environment.
    Goose: You live life between your legs Mav. Maverick: Goose even you could get laid in a place like this. Goose: Hell, I'd be happy to just find a girl that would talk dirty to me.
  22. Viper: Top Gun rules of engagement are written for your safety and for that of your team. They are not flexible, nor am I. Either obey them or you are history. Is that clear?
