We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now here’s a small selection.




Rear Admiral: Thirty plus years of service. Combat medals. Citations. Only man to shoot down three enemy planes in the last forty years. Yet, you can’t get a promotion, you won’t retire, and despite your best efforts, you refuse to die. You should be at least a two star admiral by now. Yet, here you are, captain. Why is that?
Maverick: It’s one of life’s mysteries, sir.


Rear Admiral: The end is inevitable, Maverick. Your kind is headed for extinction.
Maverick: Maybe so, sir. But not today.


Rear Admiral Marcus Williams: Your instructor is one of the finest pilots this program has ever produced. His exploits are legendary. What he has to teach you, may very well mean the difference between life and death.


Vice Admiral: Your reputation precedes you.
Maverick: I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting an invitation back.
Rear Admiral Marcus Williams: They’re called orders, Maverick.


Maverick: Good morning, aviators. This is your captain speaking. Today’s exercise is dogfighting.
Pilot Trainee: Two versus one? He’s got to be kidding.
[laughs; just then Maverick flies through them]
Pilot Trainee: What the hell?!


Lt. Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw: My dad believed in you. I’m not going to make the same mistake.


Rear Admiral Marcus Williams: You know what happens to you if you go through with this. I have everything I need to have you court-martialed and dishonorably discharged.
