Okay, you people sit tight, hold the fort and keep the home fires burning. And if we're not back by dawn . . . call the president.


I was born ready.

This is Jack Burton in the Porkchop Express and I'm talkin' to whoever's listening out there.

Just remember what old Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right in the eye and says, "Give me your best shot. I can take it."

I feel good, and I'm not scared at all. I just feel kind of . . . kind of invincible . . . Is it getting hot in here, or is it just me?

Ol' Jack always says . . . what the hell.

When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, looks you crooked in the eye and asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

Jack Burton: [Jack points to the wall] Hollow?
Wang Chi: Hollow.
Jack Burton: **** it. [Jack cuts open the hollow wall with his knife]

Everybody relax, I'm here.

[to Gracie Law] Could you stop rubbing your body up against mine? 'Cause I can't concentrate when you do that.

Jack what? I'm supposed to buy this shit? 2000 years and you can't find one broad to fit the bill? Come on Dave, you must be doing something wrong!

Like I told my last wife, I said, "Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides it's all in the reflexes."
