The Great Santini (1979)
Mary Anne Meechum: Hey Dad, why do you love me more than your other children?
Bull Meechum: Beat it, I'm reading the sports page.
Mary Anne Meechum: Let's have a conversation Dad. Let's bare our souls and get to know one another.
Bull Meechum: I don't want you to get to know me. I like being an enigma, like a Chink. Now scram.
Mary Anne Meechum: Am I a Meechum Dad? Can girls be real Meechums; girls without jump shots? Or am a simple form of Meechum, like in biology. Mary Anne, the one-celled Meechum.
Bull Meechum: Mary Anne scram, I'm starting to lose my temper; Lilian!
Mary Anne Meechum: [falls to the ground] Dad, I'm pregnant. I'm pregnant by a negro Daddy. His name is Rufus, I didn't wanna tell you but since we're baring our souls to each other. Rufus is a pacifist; a pacifist homosexual.
Bull Meechum: Jesus H. Christ! Lilian, I'm going to the club. I'll see you all at the game! I can't stand it around here!
[storms off as Mary Anne follows him.]
Mary Anne Meechum: But you'll get to like him after awhile Dad. Dwarfs are easy to like, especially when they're bald and cross-eyed....Dad....Dad...*Dad*!!
Bull Meechum: I'd like to propose a toast, to my son. He is eighteen today. He has just ordered his first drink. Before he drinks it, I'd like to wish him a long life, a wife as fine as his mother, and a son as fine as he's been. To my son!
Coach Spinks: I want us to win and win big. I want us to make our school proud, I want us to make our parents proud, our grandparents proud, our first and second cousins proud, our POONTANG proud and ourselves proud.
Ben Meechum: You know what Toomer? This is terrific. There's a shooting star.
Toomer: There's no star boy. That's the tear of infant Jesus falling on such a sinful, hateful world. This is sure one fine night, isn't it buddy boy?
Ben Meechum: Yep, this is one fine night Toomer.
Bull Meechum: I am Santini, the Great Santini.
Bull Meechum: I come from behind the moon, out of the dark, unannounced.
Bull Meechum: Watch out!
Bull Meechum: I didn't know you looked so stacked, sports fans.
Mary Anne Meechum: How sicko sexual can you get?
Mary Anne Meechum: I hate this place.
Lillian Meechum: Now sugar, you've got to open yourself to a town. You've been in the corps long enough to know that.
Mary Anne Meechum: I am not in the corps.
Matthew Meechum: Says you!
Bull Meechum: Shut your little yaps! Now here it is sports fans, Beaufort S.C.!
Lt. Sammy: [Paying tribute to Bull Meechum] To the greatest marine fighter pilot that ever crapped between two shoes!
Bull Meechum: There's those that has got 'em, Ben, and those that don't!
Ben Meechum: What?
Bull Meechum: Gonads, Son! Big brass ones!
[Walking down the hall at school]
Mary Anne Meechum: They're staring at us like we're freaks or something.
Ben Meechum: No they're no. Look, just pick someone out. Go on up to them and say, "Hi my name's Mary Anne Meechum. I'm new in town, like you for a friend." Just like that.
[At a high school dance]
Mary Anne Meechum: Can you believe dad bought me this dress? He can be so childishly sentimental sometimes. Isn't this ridiculous?
[Ben dips Mary Anne]
Ben Meechum: [joking] My darling, there's an enormous booger in your nose.
[Mary Anne and Ben start laughing out loud]
Mary Anne Meechum: He does remind me someone from the movies, but it's not Rhett Butler.
Karen Meechum: Who's that?
Mary Anne Meechum: Godzilla!
Lillian Meechum: I am not going anywhere at 3:00 in the morning. No, I am not moving this is ridiculous! It doesn't make any sense!
Bull Meechum: Who the hell asked you anything?
Lillian Meechum: Don't you talk to me like that! Now, he beat you and it was beautiful.
Bull Meechum: [to his subordinates] You're gonna hack it or pack it!
Bull Meechum: [to his subordinates] You're looking at Bull Meechum now, and this is the eye of the storm!
Lillian Meechum: Your father is very nervous about this game. Look at me, youg lady! Look at me! You've got to interpret the signals he gives off!
Mary Anne Meechum: No problem! He always gives off the signals of a psychopathic killer, so it really doesn't matter how you interpret them !
