Viper:
I flew with your old man in an A-4 at Oriskany. You're a lot like he was. Only better and worse. He was a natural heroic son of a b*tch that one.

Maverick:
So he DID do it right.

Viper:
Yeah, he did all right. Is that why you fly the way you do? Trying to prove something? Yeah your old man did it right. What I'm about to tell you is classified it could end my career. We were in the worst dogfight I could've dreamed of. There were bogeys like fireflies all over the sky. His F-4 was hit he could've made it back, stayed in it killed three of them before he bought it.

Maverick:
How come I never heard that before?

Viper:
Well that's not something the Navy tells families especially when the fight happened over the wrong line on some map.

Maverick:
So you were there?

Viper:
I was there. What's on your mind?

Maverick:
My options, Sir.

Viper:
Simple. First you've acquired enough points to show up and graduate with your Top Gun class or you can quit. There'll be no disgrace. That spin was hell it would've shook me up.

Maverick:
So you're saying I should quit?

Viper:
I didn't say that. The simple fact is you feel responsible for Goose and you have a confidence problem. Now I'm not gonna sit here and blow sunshine up your ass Lieutenant. A good pilot always evaluates what's happened so he can apply what he's learned. Up there we gotta push it. That's our job. It's your option Lieutenant. All yours.

Maverick:
Sorry to bother you on a Sunday, Sir, but thanks for your help.

Viper:
No Problem. Good luck.
