Marine Gunnery Sergeant Emil Foley tells the cadets that the program they've enlisted in is designed to weed out as many of them as possible. Zack bonds with Sid Worley and Casey Seeger during their training. At a Navy dance, Zack and Sid meet Paula Pokrifki and Lynette Pomeroy and pair off. Drill Sergeant Foley goes out of his way to discipline Zack and make an example of him, trying to break him. Zack does not break. Sid eventually learns that Lynette may be pregnant and proposes to her, but she refuses. This causes Sid to spiral into depression and forces Zack to consider dropping out of Naval training.

Sgt. Emil Foley
Foley: (addressing the new recruits) Fall in! I said fall in, you slimy worms! Put your toes on the edge of that chalk line! I said "Put your toes on the edge of this chalk line", you slimy worms.
Foley: Hi, son.
Worley: How you doing, Sarge?
Foley: What did you call me?
Worley: Beg your pardon?
Foley: What did you call me, boy?
Worley: I called you "Sarge".
Foley: Before that.
Worley: Well, I didn't call you anything before that.
Foley: You said "How are you?" I am not a "ewe", boy. A ewe is a female sheep, boy. Is that what you think I am, boy?
Foley: No, sir!
Worley: No, sir.
Foley: Louder, sweet pea!
Worley: No, sir!
Foley: Are you laughing at me, dick brain?
Mayo: No, sir!
Foley: You better stop eye-balling me, boy. I'll rip your eyeballs out of the sockets and skull-fxxx you to death.
Mayo: Yes, sir!
Foley: What's your name, boy?
Mayo: Mayo. Zak Mayo, sir.
Foley: How did you slip into this programme? I didn't now the army was so hard up.
Foley: (Emiliano is the first to exit the army barber) Now, this is my idea of an ass bandit. Wait till some of the local girls get a look at you, scrotum head.
Foley: Where are you from, boy?
Worley: Oklahoma city, Oklahoma, sir.
Foley: Ah. Only two thing come out of Oklahoma. Steers and Queers. Which one are you, boy? I don't see no horns, so you must be a queer.
Worley: No, sir!
Foley: Stop whispering, sweet pea. You're giving me a hard-on.
Worley: No, sir!
