Whitby Bevil Sr: I don't have time for games. Junior.

Sanka: Ha ha ha ha, now get back to work!
Derice: Who's the big hot bag of air? Who doesn't have to comb his hair? Who doesn't bathe, and doesn't care? Sanka! Sanka! Yeah, Sanka!

Yul: You're crowding me slinky-head.
Junior: Hehe, slinky-head, that's a good one.
Yul: What are you laughing about?
Junior: Nothing.
Yul: If it wasn't for you rich boy, I'd be in the Olympics right now.
Sanka: I don't know what you all are arguing about because Derice was going to beat both your butts anyway.
Yul: What are you talking about? How 'bout I beat your butt right now!

Derice: Mr. Coolidge please, you have to run the race over.
Mr. Coolidge : I'm sorry Derice, nothing can be done.

[At the IAWS meeting]
British Alliance Member: We must also be concerned about the potential for embarrassment.
Irv Blitzer: Oh, forgive me. I didn't realize that four black guys in a bobsled could make you blush.
Kurt: I think we've heard enough.
Irv: [pleads] Come on, Kurt, what you're doing is wrong, and you know it! Now if this is about you and me, let's get it straight right now. All right, 16 years ago, I made the biggest mistake of my life - I cheated. I was stupid. I embarrassed myself, my family, my teammates, my country... [points to Kurt] and my coach. 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. Hell, it doesn't matter if they come in first or fiftieth. Those guys have earned the right to represent their country. They've earned the right to march 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 about. Sixteen years ago I forgot that. Don't you go and do the same. Sorry if I interrupted your meeting.

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.

Junior: Now you listen me buddy. I will not be talked to that way so you better come up with a damn good apology or else...
Josef Grool: Or else what? [shoves Junior Bevil] Eh Jamaica, or else what? Come on Jamaica, say something.
Yul: No problem, man. [punches Josef Grool]

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