Scenes 25-26

Scene 25

  • The hop is over, and the Top Gun pilots are waiting for the showers.
  • Maverick is in a towel, and he seems upset that he made a mistake.
  • Jester comes in, and praises him, but then scolds him too: "That was some of the best flying I've seen yet, right up to the part where you got killed. You never, never leave your wingman."
  • Then, it's Iceman's turn, who also takes a dig at Maverick: "Maverick, it's not your flying, it's your attitude. The enemy's dangerous, but right now you're worse than the enemy. You're dangerous and foolish."
  • Maverick seems to know he's let Goose down again, and during Iceman's little speech, he approaches his pal.
  • Goose tries to look at things in a positive light, reminding Maverick that Viper got Iceman before he and Jester got them.
  • Maverick knows he was stupid, and tells Goose it'll never happen again.
  • Goose says he knows it won't.
  • Hmm, is this Goose's way of saying "I know it won't because I'll quit if it does?"Ā 
  • That's a good question.

Scene 26

  • Well, Maverick needs some time for reflection in his quarters after all of that.
  • Some sad music is playing while he pulls a photo out of his wallet.
  • It's clearly he and his father. Maverick is sitting on his dad's shoulders, and there's a jet in the background.
  • Maverick is thinking about his family history again, something we know has been on his mind throughout the film.
