  • PFC. Frankie Lombardi: "Well here it is! You said trouble would come looking for you, you said it wold come right through that front door. So it came through the back door, but here it is!"

  • Gunnery Sergeant Vince Carter: "Did you see that, Pyle? Did you see how close I came to being sent to a federal penitentiary?"
    PFC. Gomer Pyle: "Federal penitentiary? Surely they wouldn't send you to a penitentiary just for having a little boy in your platoon area?"
