Some real moto stuff here.

You're gonna learn from us.

In boot camp you learned out of a book. Out here, you gotta remember the book and learn a thousand things that have never been printed, probably never will be.

You gotta learn right and you gotta learn fast.

And any man that doesn't want to cooperate, I'll make him wish he hadn't been born.

Before I'm through with you, you're gonna move like one man and think like one man. If you don't, you'll be dead.

Now you guys have had a nice, easy day. I hope you enjoyed it because it's the last one you're gonna get for a long time.

You joined the Marines because you wanted to fight. Well you're gonna get your chance, and I'm here to see that you know how. If I can't teach you one way, I'll teach ya another.

But I'm gonna get the job done.

My personal creed from my time in the Marines

Son, we live in a world that has walls.

And those walls have to be guarded by men

with guns. Who's gonna do it? You?I have a greater

responsibility than you can possibly

fathom. You weep for Santiago and you

curse the marines. You have that luxury.

You have the luxury of not knowing what I

know: That Santiago's death, while tragic,

probably saved lives. And my existence,

while grotesque and incomprehensible to

you, saves lives.

You don't want the truth. Because deep

down, in places you don't talk about at

parties, you want me on that wall. You need me

on that wall.

We use words like honor, code,

loyalty...we use these words as the

backbone to a life spent defending

something. You use 'em as a punchline.

I have neither the time nor the

inclination to explain myself to a man who

rises and sleeps under the blanket of the

very freedom I provide, then questions the

manner in which I provide it. I'd prefer

you just said thank you and went on your

way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a

weapon and stand a post. Either way, I

don't give a damn what you think you're

entitled to.
