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


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

Oh, this is good.

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

Momma Coffie: Everybody shut up, my boy's on TV!

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!

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.

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

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

Olympic Announcer: That's a hair faster than the Swiss.

Olympic Announcer: [on the aftermath of the first run] Well, thank goodness, for a minute there I didn't think they would get all four of them in. And THAT could have been a disaster.

Derice: Mr. Coolidge please, you have to run the race over.
Mr. Coolidge : I'm sorry Derice, nothing can be done.
Derice : But I was born to compete in the Olympics.
Mr. Coolidge : Then you'll have to work on your boxing or cycling. Those are the only other two sports in which Jamaica competes.
Derice: I am not a boxer, I am a runner. And it wasn't fair.
Mr. Coolidge : It rarely is my boy, it rarely is.

Derice: Thats a bobsled.
Sanka: Oh, so a bobsled is push-cart with no wheels.
Derice: Thats what it looks like here.
Sanka: "Let me see that...Alright, the key elements to a successful sled team are a steady driver, and three strong runners to push off down the ice." ICE? Ice?
Derice: Well, it's kind of a winter sport, you know.
Sanka: You mean winter, as in ice?
Derice: Maybe.
Sanka: You mean winter, as in igloos and eskimos and penguins and ICE?
Derice: Possibly.
Sanka: See ya.
Derice: Where you going?
Sanka: I'm going to take a hot bath, I'm getting cold just thinking about all this ice.

Derice: Please Mr. Blitzer, just give me a chance. If I don't have what it takes we'll forget the whole thing.
Irv: Believe me kid, you do not have what it takes.
Derice: But you thought my father did.
Irv: Your father was one of the toughest competitors I ever saw. He ran the hundred meters in 10 flat.
Derice: Well I'll run it in 9.9.
