More Military

1. Roger Corman's "King Kong."

2. "All right, you kids. I warned you to stay offa my lawn. Prepare to be carpet-bombed."

3. The thrilling climax to Honey, I Shrunk the Jumbo Jet.

4. Good, Rocket Boy is distracted. I can Hail Mary this right into the back of his head.

5. "Go Long!"

6. "Yeah, he's trippin' on Iraqi hashish, yeah, he thinks he can fly, but I'm wondering if our best entertainment option is 'talk him down' or 'egg him on.'"

7. Radio-Controlled Airplane Enthusiast on the Roof was a weak sequel to Fiddler.

8. "He keeps sobbing about 'Goose' and vowing to kill those red bastards. Let's get him outta the sun."

It helps if you have some military cadence experience on this one...
