[Waking up Irv for the training run]
Sanka: Rise and shine.
Derice: It's butt whipping time.


[at a club somewhere in Jamaica]
Olympic Announcer: Where did these guys come from?
Crowd At Bar: [shouts at TV] JAMAICA!!!!

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

[Repeated over the course of the film] Remember, this doesn't mean that I like you.

All I'm saying, mon, is if we walk Jamaican, talk Jamaican, and is Jamaican, then we sure as hell better bobsled Jamaican.

All right, Derice. Let me lay out some difficulties for you. Snow: you don't have any. It's nine hundred degrees out there. Time: you don't have any. The Olympics are in three months. And me: you don't have me. As far as I'm concerned, the sport of bobsledding no longer exists. I don't want to do it, I don't want to coach it, and most of all, and I mean most of all, I don't want to be within two thousand miles of anybody who does. Now did you follow all that?

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!

Come on, Kurt, what you're doing here is wrong, and you know it! Now if this is about you and me, let's lay it all down now. All right, sixteen years ago, I made the biggest mistake of my life: I cheated. I was stupid. I embarrassed myself, I embarrassed my country, my friends, my family, my teammates, [points to Kurt] and my coach. Hey, if it's revenge you want, take it. Go ahead, disqualify me, banish me! Do whatever you want, but do it to me! It was me who let you down, Kurt! It wasn't my guys! They've done everything you've asked of them! And they did it with all of you laughing in their face. Hey, it doesn't matter tomorrow if they come in first or fiftieth. Those guys have earned the right to walk into that stadium and wave their nation's flag. That's the single greatest honor an athlete can ever have. That's what the Olympics are all about. Sixteen years ago I forgot that. Don't you go and do the same.

Don't touch me!

Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on up, its bobsled time! COOL RUNNINGS!

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

Greetings, sled god.

I'm feeling very Olympic today, how about you? [Soviet team and other participants look at him]

I'm freezing my royal Rastafarian nay-nays off!

Just shut up, Sanka. Now maybe you haven't noticed, but we aren't exactly winning any popularity contests here. They hate me; they hate you; they hate us! Now if we're even gonna think about qualifying, we're each gonna have to sit down and take a nice deep look inside. I didn't come all this way to get my butt whipped! As a matter of fact, now that I'm here, I thought I'd do a little whipping of my own! Good night, gentlemen!
