Hard Knox (1984 TV Movie)
Frankie Tyrone: [upset at being disciplined] I'll tell you what my problem is: my problem is you. And everybody like you. Tellin' me when to get up, when to eat, when to sleep. You know what I want? I want control, man. For once in my life, I want control!
Col. Joe Knox: Well, why didn't you say so?
Col. Joe Knox: [to Tyrone, after putting a light plane on autopilot] Put your hand on the yoke.
Frankie Tyrone: Huh?
Col. Joe Knox: Go ahead.
[Tyrone does so]
Col. Joe Knox: Great job.
[Indicates button on yoke handle]
Col. Joe Knox: Now, press that button.
Frankie Tyrone: What does that do?
Col. Joe Knox: That releases the autopilot.
Frankie Tyrone: [Slowly dawning on him] Hey, what're you doing, man?
Col. Joe Knox: You said you wanted control... you've got control.
Frankie Tyrone: [Now in an uncontrolled dive] Noooooooooooooooooooo!
Col. Joe Knox: What do you say we give 'em a little surprise of our own... and show up on Monday morning?
[a military barber is shaving off Tyrone's mohawk]
Frankie Tyrone: Don't desecrate the colors, man... *I'll kill your dog, man!*
Jessi Richards: You yell louder and more often than any person...
Thomas 'Top' Tuttle: I do not yell! I simply communicate in a tone of voice that ensures I will not be misquoted, misunderstood, or ignored!
Jessi Richards: That's what I said. You yell a lot.
Thomas 'Top' Tuttle: You listen up, new cadet, Congress might have put you here but that don't give you the license to give me lectures on the evils of nicotine or...
Jessi Richards: Congress didn't put me here... My grandmother did.
Thomas 'Top' Tuttle: I'll tell you one thing, I do no like kids that talk like adults... they make me nervous! So you take it on the heel and toe, young lady, and get back to your company area... ON THE DOUBLE!
Thomas 'Top' Tuttle: What are you doing, Cadet Captain Pesco?
Gary Pascoe: Teaching the cadets to march, sir!
Thomas 'Top' Tuttle: No no no no no no... That isn't what you're doing. 31 years in the Marine corps, I know what marching is and this. is NOT. MARCHING! God in Heaven may know what you people are doing, but *I* do NOT!
