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


Sanka: I know, I'm the driver right?
Irv: No, you're the brake man.
Sanka: No, no I'm the driver.
Irv: No you're not, you're the brake man.
Sanka: I'm the driver.
Irv: You're not, you're the brake man.
Sanka: You don't understand, I am Sanka Coffie, I am the best push-cart driver in all of Jamaica, I must drive. Do you dig where I'm coming from?
Irv: Yeah I dig where you're coming from. Now dig where I'm coming from. I'm coming from two gold medals, I'm coming from nine world records in both the two and four-man events. I'm coming from ten years of intense competition with the best athletes in the world.
Sanka: Thats a hell of a place to be coming from.

Derice: Sanka, whatcha smokin man?
Sanka: I'm not smoking, I'm breathing.

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

Derice: Sanka, you dead?
Sanka: Yeah man.
Derice: You can pee now.
Sanka: Oooh, too late...

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.

Sanka: Derice, you dead?
Derice: No man, I'm not dead. But we have to finish the race.

[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.

Oooh, the back is nice!

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

What I am saying to you, is that you are the kind of club-toting, raw-meat-eating, Me-Tarzan-You-Jane-ing big bald bubblehead that can only count to ten if he's barefoot or wearing sandals.
