Quotes from the Movie Cool Runnings

Oh, so a bobsled is push-cart with no wheels.

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?

Sanka

You mean winter, as in igloos and eskimos and penguins and ICE?

Sanka

I'm going to take a hot bath, I'm getting cold just thinking about all this ice.

Sanka

So what are we going to name the sled?

Sanka

Sounds like a two-dollar hooker. How'd you come up with that?

Sanka

What's it gonna be, star? What are the people gonna be screaming when Jamaica takes the hill?

Sanka

To the man in the orange suit. [Toasting after man leaves] To the messenger.

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.

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.

Sanka

Let me tell you something rasta, I didn't come up here to forget who I am and where I come from.

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.

Sanka

We must also be concerned about the potential for embarrassment.

British Alliance Member

Oh, forgive me. I didn't realize that four black guys in a bobsled could make you blush.

Irv Blitzer

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.

Irv

Derice, a gold medal is a wonderful thing, but if you're not enough without it, you'll never be enough with it.

Irv

Hey man, look here, I'm just trying to get us off on the right foot.

Derice

Kissing an egg is no kind of style. It's the Olympics here, it's no stupid push-cart derby.

Derice

Neither did I, I'm just trying to be the best I can be.

Derice

Hey coach, how will I know if I'm enough?

Derice

No man, I'm not dead. But I have to finish the race.

Derice

Cool runnings means, "peace be the journey."

Derice
