Charlie (Kelly McGillis)
This movie was a joy to watch. Similar to most other movies starring Tom Cruise, Top Gun has Cruise as a protagonist who has a fun personality, lives life dangerously, and knows how to take care of business when things get down and dirty.

Iceman (Val Kilmer)
Overall, the dogfights were fun to watch and I would recommend readers see this film at least once, especially if they're a fan of Tom Cruise.

On a different note, I didn't realize that the actress playing Charlie, Kelly McGillis, was also the leading actress in Witness (1985).

"Highway to the danger zone."
"You two are going to Top Gun."
"Keeping up foreign relations. You know. Giving him the bird." HAHA!
"You know, the finger." Ha!

"Slider." Takes a whiff. "You stink."
Hmm... on the one hand, textbook maneuvers are probably logical, but possibly well-studied and predictable.
"Take My Breath Away"

Maverick (Tom Cruise) and Goose (Anthony Edwards)
Oh wow, I didn't even notice that was Meg Ryan (Goose's wife)
"You. You're still dangerous... You can be my wingman anytime." "Bullshit... you can be mine."
