From “Good Morning, Vietnam“:
General Taylor: Woah, Dick, put the brakes on. I wanted to wait until airman left to talk with you. Dick, I’m transferring you.
Sgt. Major Dickerson: Transferring me? Where to sir?
General Taylor: You’re going to Guam.
Sgt. Major Dickerson: Guam sir? There’s nothing going on in Guam. Why Guam?
General Taylor: Dick, I’ve covered for you a lot of times cause I thought you were a little crazy. But you’re not crazy, you’re mean. And this is just radio.
[goes to the elevator and laughs]
General Taylor: “More dire need of a blowjob than any white man in history.” That’s funny.
One of my favorite quotes from the movie:
When he reached the New World, Cortez burned his ships. As a result his men were well motivated.

“This is a wonderful journey from infinity back to infinity.”
– Deranged man in the tube, as quoted by Andy Zaltzman of The Bugle Podcast
Where there is nothing, all there is is the possibility of something.

Holly Gennero McClane: After all your posturing, all your little speeches, you’re nothing but a common thief.
Hans Gruber: I am an exceptional thief, Mrs. McClane. And since I’m moving up to kidnapping, you should be more polite.
