Major Payne (1995)
Major Payne: What we've got here is a failure to communicate.

Major Payne: My Name is Major Benson Winifred Payne. As of 0800, I am replacing Major Frankfurt as your commanding officer.
Cadet Deak Williams, Cadets: Booo. Boooooooooooooooo.
[Major Payne has fired warning shots in the air from his pistol for their insubordination; he slowly lowers it]
Major Payne: See what we have here is a failure to communicate.
[walks up to his cadets]
Major Payne: Do not attempt to challenge my authority. I have eight weeks to turn you gaggle of maggots into a well-discipline cadet unit. From this day forward your sorry asses belong to me. You will not eat, sleep, drink, blow your nose or dig in your buts without my say so. Know this, killing is my business, ladies, and business is good.

Major Payne: Well let me tell you something ass-eyes, let me tell you ALL something: war has made me very PARANOID! and when a man gets a eye-balling me, it makes my Agent Orange act up, and I get the urge to kill! You understand me.

Major Payne: Maybe what he need is for you to pop your titty out his mouth and let the boy grow up.
Emily: Excuse me, what did you say?
Major Payne: I didn't stutter, I said pop-your-titty-out-his-mouth AND STOP BABYING HIM.
Emily: I don't call it babying, I call it nurturing.
Major Payne: And I call it neutering.
Emily: And I call you an insecure, overbearing, psychopathic, edictorial, ego maniacal, frigid lunatic ASSHOLE!
Major Payne: I ain't frigid.

Major Payne: From now on, my little group of shaved scrotum sacks, you will walk like me, talk like me, eat like me, and until you win those games, you will be BALD like me.

[after a ruse to try and get rid of him, Major Payne forces the cadets to wear dresses and march with him]

Major Payne: I'm just a bald headed son of a bitch without hair.

Major Payne: I tell ya, ladies, you're the prettiest cadets under my command. I oughta change my name to Pimp Daddy Payne.

Major Payne: One! Don't you feel dumb. Two! Look at you. Three! Don't you ever make jokes about me behind my back or else I'll stomp you into the ground.

Major Payne: You're still a shit sandwich. You're just not a soggy one. From this moment, you are no longer turds. You have graduated to maggots!

Major Payne: Apparently he pissed all over the front of his pants.
Emily: Well maybe that's because he's six.
Major Payne: Because he's six? Woman, when I was six years old I had a full time job.
