And you don't see the Swiss team smiling neither. In fact, if one of those Swiss boys ever came across a pretty girl he would probably yell 'eins, zwei, drei' and try to push her down some ice!


Lets get one thing straight Bannock. We may be on the same team but I am no one's teammate.

Derice Bannock: "Cool Runnings" means "Peace Be The Journey."

Old Man: I'll pay a dollar to shut up!

Josef Grool: Hey Blitzer, why don't you put some training wheels on that sled?

Derice: I can't believe the trials are finally here.
Joy: Are you nervous?
Derice: I'm not nervous, I'm ready. I've been ready for this day my whole life. I don't care how fast they run, I'm gonna run faster. I don't care how much they want it, I want it more. I'm going to the Olympics baby, I can feel it. I'm going to win the gold.
Joy: Derice, are you nervous?
Derice: I'm terrified!

Irv: Gentlemen, a bobsled is a simple thing.
Sanka: Yeah, so's a toilet!

Sanka: Hey coach, I can't get my helmet on...
[Irv punches the helmet down onto his head.]
Sanka: Oooh, thanks, Coach.

Derice: I can't believe your still cold man.
Sanka: Cold?! I'm freezing my royal Rastafarian nay-nays off!

Derice: I'm not worried and we have good coach.
Larry: I hate to say it but uh, you've got to wake up, Coach Blitzer is what's killing you. He's been useless since the day he was busted.
Derice: Whatcha mean busted?
Larry: The '72 Games, guy hid weights in the front of the sled to make it go faster.
Derice: So what? It's no big deal.
Larry: Having your gold medals taken away for cheating is a big deal!
Coach Irv: [sees the conversation] Derice, let's go, we got a big meeting. [Derice leaves, then Irv speaks to Larry] Giving my kid a few pointers, Larry?
Larry: Your kid's gonna need all the help he can get...[marches up to Irv] Coach.

Derice: You know, when the Swiss want to ge....[Team groans]
Sanka: Ah, will you shut up about the damn Swiss! I mean, it was all that eins zwei drei nonsense that got us all nervous in the first place.
Derice: Hey man, look here, I'm just trying to get us off on the right foot.
Sanka: Well the right foot for us is not the Swiss foot. I mean come on Derice, we can't be copying nobody else's style. We have our own style.
Derice: Kissing an egg is no kind of style. It's the Olympics here, it's no stupid push-cart derby. [Long pause]
Sanka: Let me tell you something rasta, I didn't come up here to forget who I am and where I come from.
Derice: Neither did I, I'm just trying to be the best I can be.
Sanka: So am I, and the best I can be is Jamaican. Look, Derice...I've known you since Julie Jeffreys asked to see your ding-a-ling and I'm telling you as a friend if we look Jamaican, walk Jamaican, talk Jamaican and IS Jamaican, then we sure as hell better bobsled Jamaican.

Irv: Derice, a gold medal is a wonderful thing. But if you're not enough without it, you'll never be enough with it.
Derice: Hey coach, how will I know if I'm enough?
Irv: When you cross that finish line, you'll know.

[During the push-cart race] I love Jamaica and Jamaica loves me!

Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up, It's push-cart time...

Greetings, sled god.
