Sgt. Bilko (1996)
Pfc. Wally Holbrook: [Pvt. Doberman is playing tug-of-war with a horse for a bet] What's going on?
Sgt. Raquel Barbella: It's Private Doberman, he's the one that looks sort of human. Last night in the gym he said, "I feel as strong as a horse." Some guy from Company P overheard him and said, "Yeah, for how much?". That's the golden rule around here, you don't say nothing unless you're prepared to back it up.

Colonel Hall: What is that?
Bilko: [nonchalantly] That's horse shit, sir. I tell the men "You have to test-drive the vehicles"...
Colonel Hall: What's it doing there?
Bilko: It keeps the flies off the food, sir. There's no way you can tell what wrong with an engine when it's just sitting on the block...
Colonel Hall: Off the food?
Bilko: It's an experimental program, I'd say the results are mixed.
[Hall then notices the live horse from the tug-of-war that's been hoisted up above them]
Sgt. Barbella: It's a lot cheaper than sending out for it, sir.
Sgt. Henshaw: And fresher too.

Barbella: Sarge, you're crying.
Bilko: [as he admires Las Vegas] It's just so beautiful!

Sgt. Raquel Barbella: [as they're rushing to Bilko's wedding in a Humvee] Give me the ring. You were the best man last time.
Sgt. Henshaw: He didn't get married last time, that don't count!
Sgt. Raquel Barbella: It's my turn!
Sgt. Henshaw: How are you gonna be best man?
