Josef Grool: Ah Blitzy, are you going to tuck them in too?


Our Father, who art in Calgary, Bobsled be thy name. Thy kingdom come, gold medals won, on Earth as it is in Turn Seven. With Liberty and Justice for Jamaica and Haile Selassie. Amen.

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.

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

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.

[Rapping]
Sanka: Some people say you know them can't believe, Jamaica we have a bobsled team. We have a one Derice.
Derice: And a one Junior.
Junior: Yu... Sanka.
Derice: The fastest of the fastest of Jamaican sprinters.
Team: Go to Olympics fight for Jamaica.

Junior: [Practicing speech to father]Alright father, listen here. You see, I have made up my mind I am going to be a bobsledder. Thats right, a bobsledder. Oh really? Well I'm sorry you feel that way, fine cut off my allowance. Because you see father, a man has got to do what a man has got to do.

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

Joy: That fool had better watch his mouth.
Momma Coffie: He'd better watch MORE than that.

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!

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

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

Sanka: Maid service sir. Would you like your bed turned down? Mint? Perhaps I could dust your head?
Yul: Whatever is wrong with you is no little thing.

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

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