Cool Runnings Quotes

John Candy as Irv

  • (John Candy) "Oh, yeah, just one little drawback to this delightful winter sport. The high-speed crash. Ooh. That hurt. Always remember, your bones will not break in a bobsled. No, no, no. They shatter."
  • (British Official) "We must also be concerned about the potential for embarrassment."
  • (John Candy) "Oh, pardon me. I didn't realize that four black guys in a bobsled could make you blush."
  • (John Candy) "It's not so much the heat, it's the humidity that'll kill you."
  • (John Candy) "That's very funny."
  • (John Candy) "All right, Derice. Let me lay out some difficulties for you. Snow: you don't have any. It's nine hundred degrees out there. Time: you don't have any. The Olympics are in three months. And me: you don't have me. As far as I'm concerned, the sport of bobsledding no longer exists. I don't want to do it, I don't want to coach it, and most of all, and I mean most of all, I don't want to be within two thousand miles of anybody who does. Now did you follow all that?"
  • (John Candy) "You see Sanka, the driver has to work harder than anyone. He's the first to show up, and the last to leave. When his buddies are all out drinking beer, he's up in his room studying pictures of turns. You see, a driver must remain focused one hundred percent at all times. Not only is he responsible for knowing every inch of every course he races, he's also responsible for the lives of the other men in the sled. Now do you want that responsibility?"
  • (Doug E. Doug) "I say we make Derice the driver."
  • (John Candy) "So do I, Sanka. So do I."
  • (John Candy) "This is what it's all about, this is whether you win or lose the race, right here in the push start. This is where you're gonna practice, right here, right here in a Volkswagon."
  • (John Candy) "Winning a bobsled race is about one thing: the push-start. Now I know you dainty, little track-stars think you're fast. Well, heh, let's see how fast you are when you push a six-hundred pound sled. Now a respectable start-time is five-point-seven seconds. If you speed demons can't whip off an even six flat, you have a better chance of becoming a barbershop quartet."
  • (John Candy) "I told the owner of the bar that these guys were mentally disturbed, so he's not going to press any charges."
  • (Doug E. Doug) "Yeah. Sled god does it again."
  • (John Candy) "Just shut up, Sanka."
  • (John Candy) "It's a fair question. It's quite simple, really. I had to win. You see, Derice, I had made winning my whole life, and when you make winning your whole life, you have to keep on winning, no matter what. Understand?"
  • (Leon Robinson) "No, I don't understand. You won two gold medals. You had it all."
  • (John Candy) "Derice, a gold medal is a wonderful thing. But if you're not enough without it, you'll never be enough with it."

Malik Yoba as Yul Brenner

  • (Malik Yoba) "Look in the mirror, and tell me what you see."
  • (Rawle D. Lewis) "I see Junior."
  • (Malik Yoba) "You see Junior? Well, let me tell you what I see. I see pride. I see power. I see a bad-ass mother who don't take no crap off of nobody."
  • (Malik Yoba) "Hey, Dreadlocks. Let me kiss your lucky egg."
  • (Malik Yoba) "Say whatever it is that you want 'cause you're just like every other fool on the island. You're going nowhere, Sanka, and you're thrilled to death about it. But you see me? You see me? I'm different, 'cause I know exactly where I'm going and after I, Yul Brenner, win the Olympics and become famous I'm going to leave the island and live right down there."
  • (Malik Yoba) "What are you laughing about? What are you laughing about?"
  • (Doug E. Doug) "That's Buckingham Palace. You plan on living there, you're going to have to marry the Queen."
  • (Rawle D. Lewis) "Yul, that's where the Queen of England lives."
  • (Doug E. Doug) "Face it, Yul Brenner you can start calling yourself Madonna but you're still going to end up in an outhouse shanty like every other dock working nobody."
  • (Rawle D. Lewis) "Mm, says who?"
  • (Doug E. Doug) "Says me, rich boy. What do you know about it?"
  • (Rawle D. Lewis) "Well, I know my father started off in a one room hut. Now he lives in one of the biggest homes in Kingston."
  • (Doug E. Doug) "Well, he ain't your father."
  • (Rawle D. Lewis) "He doesn't have to be. All he has to do is know what he wants and work hard for it. And if he wants it bad enough, he'll get it. Look, believe me, Sanka the more Yul Brenners we got making it in this world the better off this world will be, especially for Jamaicans. Go ahead, Yul Brenner. Go get your palace."
  • (Malik Yoba) "Remember, this doesn't mean that I like you."
  • (Malik Yoba) "Don't touch me."
  • (Malik Yoba) "How about I beat your butt right now?"
  • (Doug E. Doug) "How about I draw a line down the middle of your head so it looks like a butt?"

All you have to do is look at me in the eye and say, "Sanka, you are my best friend, we've been through a whole heap together, and I really, really need you.""
