* ThrowItIn: Many of RLeeErmey's lines as Hartman were ad-libbed. He was one of the few actors allowed to go OffTheRails in Kubrick's films, who is known for his meticulous control of every part of the story.

Kubrick stopped the filming to ask what that meant. After it was explained, he laughed, and decided to include it in the final film.
