The 10 Cheesiest Top Gun lines you never forget

26 Apr

Sat down to watch TV last night and one of the all time flying classics – Top Gun was on with Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer and Kelly McGillis. Whether you are a flying fan or not you have to admit that the film is a classic and has some of the cheesiest lines known to film. During the film last night I wrote down ten of the best:

  1. “Son, your Ego’s writing cheques your body can’t cash!”

  2. ” I got the need, the need for speed.”

  3. ” She’s lost that loving feeling” ( taken from the song by The Righteous Brothers)

  4. “Mustang, this is Maverick requesting a flyby…. request denied Maverick — yeehaw son of a gun.”

  5. “Goose you stud, take me to bed or lose me forever.”

  6. “That’s the gutsiest move I ever saw man.”

  7. ” God he loved flying with you Maverick”

  8. ” If you can’t find a rear, I’ll fly with you”

  9. “Ten minutes!!!   this thing we be over in 2 minutes man”

  10. “You’re still dangerous…. You can be my wingman anytime… Bull sh@$- you can be mine”
