Marine Gunnery Sergeant Tom Highway has been in the Corps since the Korean War and would like to see some action and a victory before he retires. He requests to be transfered to the unit that he was once busted out of. Upon arriving the commanding officer knows of Highway's reputation, especially of his lack of respect for his superiors, warns him that he is going to keep an eye on him. Highway's assigned to train a recon unit which consists mostly of deadbeats. But Highway's determined to turn them into true marines and they are not exactly pleased with him, at first. And he is also trying to reconnect with his ex-wife.

Gunny Highway: "The Marines are looking for a few good men. Unfortunately, you ain't it."
Gunny Highway (awaking his platoon): "Drop your cots and grab your socks. Off your ass and on your feet marines."
Profile: "It's 5 a.m. You said we were going to begin at 6."
Gunny Highway: "So I can't tell time. So I lied. You are Marines. You improvise, you adapt, you overcome."
Little Mary: "Panther Piss, some of the best years of my life were spent with a Marine."
Highway: "I'll send you home with the I just pumped neighbor's cat look on your face."
Recon Platoon: ""SWEDE! SWEDE! SWEDE! SWEDE!" -Recon Platoon"
Highway: "I've drank more beer, pissed more blood, and banged more quiff than all you numb-nuts put together -Highway"
Highway: "With all due respect, sir, you're beginning to bore the hell out of me. -Highway"
Highway: "Improvise. Adapt. Overcome. -Highway"
Highway: "Sergeant, get that contraband stogie out of my face before I shove it so far up your ass that you'll have to stick a match up your nose to light it! -Highway"
