Full Metal Jacket
Private Gomer Pyle (Bathroom) Scene
Clip Description
The famous bathroom scene where Private Gomer Payle (Vincent D'Onofrio) kills himself is actually worthy of the scene the film is name After. The reason why, "full metal jacket" refers to the type of small arms ammunition used in warfare, as heard in Private Pyle's famous line spoken on the toilet, "7.62 millimeter, full... metal... jacket." Full metal jacket ammunition has a copper coating covering the lead core of its projectile.
