  • Huh? Not in my town, you don't. [turns on the siren and chases Lightning McQueen]
  • Boy, you're in a heap of trouble.
  • May Doc have mercy on your soul.


Lightning McQueen: Oh, whatever. [the press laughs]
Chick Hicks: Hey, Lightning! Yo, McQueen, seriously, that was some pretty darn nice racing out there...BY ME! [chuckles] Welcome to the Chick Era, baby! The Piston Cup? It's mine, dude. It's mine. Hey, fellas, how do you think I'll look in Dinoco Blue? [pauses] DINOCO BLUE!! AH HA HA HA!
McQueen: In your dreams, Thunder.
Hicks: Yeah, well..."Thunder"? What's he talking about, "Thunder"?
McQueen: Oh, you know, because 'Thunder' always comes after Lightning! Ka-chow! [poses to the crowd]

Lightning McQueen: Oh... Oh, I needed this... [puts on speaker phone] Hello?
Harv: Is this Lightning McQueen, the world's fastest racing machine?
Lightning McQueen: Is this Harv, the world's greatest agent?
Harv (US): And it is such an honor to be your agent that it almost hurts me to take ten percent of your winnings and merchandising and ancillary rights in perpetuity anyway. What a race! Huh, champ?! I did-- I didn't see it, but I heard you were great.
Harv (UK): And it is such an honor to be your agent, it almost hurts me to take ten percent of your winnings. And merchandising and ancillary rights in perpetuity anyway. What a race, superstar, I mean, I didn't actually see it, but I heard you were great.
Lightning McQueen: Uh, thanks, Harv.
Harv (US): Listen, they're giving you 20 tickets for the tiebreaker thing in Cali. I'll pass them onto your friends. You shoot me the names. You let Harv rock it for you, alright, baby?
Harv (UK): Listen, they're giving you, uh, 20 tickets for this tiebreaker thing in LA, I'll pass them onto your friends, just give me the names and Harv will sort everything out for you, okay, mate?
Lightning McQueen: Right! Friends! Yes, there's, um...
Harv (US): Okay, I get it, Mr. Popular, so many friends you can't even narrow it down, hey! When you get to town, you better make time for your best friend, you gotta break bread with your mishpocheh here.
Harv (UK): Okay, I get it, Mr. Popular, so many friends you can't even narrow it down, hey, when you get to town, you better make time for your best friend. I mean, we're family, let's break some bread.
Lightning McQueen: Yeah, yeah, that would be great! We should totally--
Harv (US): Okay, I gotta jump, kid. But let me know how it goes. I'm out.
Harv (UK): Yeah, yeah, whatever, listen, I'll take care, mate, I gotta go, bye!

[Lightning McQueen is on trial for ripping up much of Radiator Springs' main street]
Doc Hudson: All right, I want to know who's responsible for wrecking my town, Sheriff. I want his hood on a platter. I'm going to put him in jail 'til he rots. No, check that... I'm going to put him in jail 'til the jail rots on top of him, then I'm going to move him to a new jail and let that jail rot. I'm - [finally spots Lightning] Throw him out of here, Sheriff. I want him out of my courtroom, I want him out of our town. Case dismissed!
Lightning McQueen: Yes!
Mater: Boy, I'm pretty good at this lawyerin' stuff!

[Doc and Mater show McQueen the road he damaged that he must now redo.]
Lightning McQueen: Whoa, whoa, whoa, how long is this gonna take?
Doc Hudson: Well, if a fella does it right, it should take him about five days.
Lightning McQueen: Five days?! But I should be in California, schmoozing Dinoco right now!
Doc Hudson: Then if I were you, I'd quit yappin' and start workin'! Hook him up, Mater!
Mater: Okey-dokey! [struggles with getting the parking boot off Lightning's left front tire, but successfully removes the parking boot]
Lightning McQueen: [once the parking boot is off of him, he takes off from Radiator Springs like a bullet] FREEDOM!!!!
Mater: [as Doc glares at him] (Uh....) Maybe I should've uh...hooked him up to Bessie...and then uh...then took the boot off. (Yeah.)
Lightning McQueen: [Driving away from Radiator Springs] WHOO-HOO!! Goodbye Radiator Springs and goodbye Bessie! California, here I come!! [Continues speeding away] Oh feel that wind... Yes! [Engine begins to sputter] No... no... no, no, no! Out of gas?! How could I be out of gas?! [Stops right in front of the Sheriff and Sally Carrera]
Sheriff: [Chuckles] Boy, we ain't as dumb as you think we are.
Lightning McQueen: Bu-bu-bu-but, h-h-h-how did-?
Sally Carrera: We siphoned your gas while you were passed out. Kachow! [Does Lightning's bit maneuver]
Lightning McQueen: [Irritated from light in his windshield] Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! [Huffs in defeat]

Lightning McQueen: No, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, it's the truth! I'm telling you! You gotta help me! DON'T LEAVE ME HERE! I'M IN HILLBILLY HELL!! MY IQ'S DROPPING BY THE SECOND! I'M BECOMING ONE OF THEEEEEEMMMMM!!!!!!!!! [echoes]

[Lightning McQueen has just seen Doc Hudson's driving and follows him back to his shop]
McQueen: Doc, hold it! Seriously, your driving's incredible!
Doc: [sarcastically] Wonderful. Now go away.
McQueen: Hey, I mean it. You've still got it!
Hudson: I'm asking you to leave.
McQueen: Come on. I'm a racecar, you're... well a much older racecar, but under the hood, you and I are the same.
McQueen: How could a car like you quit at the top of your game?!
Doc: [shocked] You think I quit? [shows Lightning an old newspaper]
McQueen: Right... your big wreck in '54...
Doc: They quit on me. When I finally got put together, I went back expecting a big welcome. Know what they said? "You're history." Moved on to the next rookie standing in line. [defeated] There was a lot left in me. I just never got a chance to show 'em. I keep that to remind me never to go back. I just never expected that that world would... would find me here.
McQueen: Hey Doc, I'm not them.
Doc: Oh yeah?
McQueen: No, I'm not!
Doc: When was the last time you cared about something except yourself, hot rod? You name me one time, and I will take it all back.
[Lightning looks defeated since he can't think about the last time he never cared for someone else]
Doc: [nods knowingly] Uh-huh. I didn't think so. These are good folk around here, who care about one another. I don't want them depending on someone they can't count on.
McQueen: [shocked and disgusted] Oh, like you? You've been here for how long, and your friends don't even know who you are? Who's caring about only himself?!
Doc: [taken aback by this; then angrily] Just finish that road and get outta here!
[He drives away while Lightning glares at him]

[Having discovered Doc's real identity as the Fabulous Hudson Hornet, Lightning McQueen desperately tries to convince the rest of the gang]
Lightning McQueen: Did you know Doc is a famous race car?!
[Everybody doesn't believe him and start snickering]
Sheriff: Doc? Our Doc?
Sarge: Not Doc Hudson.
Lightning McQueen: No no no no, it's true! He's a real racing legend. He's the Fabulous Hudson Hornet!
Flo: Fabulous? I've never seen Doc drive more than 20 miles an hour. I mean, have you ever seen him race?
McQueen: No, but I wish I could. They say that he was amazing. He won three Piston Cups!
Mater: [spits out oil that he's drinking] He did WHAT in his cup?!

[The folks of Radiator Springs (Except Doc) are sad that Lightning McQueen left without saying goodbye after fixing the main road.]
Mater: He's done. He must've finished it while we was all sleepin'.
Doc Hudson: [coldly] Good riddance. [turns around and drives off]
Flo: He's gone?
Sarge: Well, we wouldn't want him to miss that race of his... (would we?) [Sally drives off sadly]
Ramone: [hears the Sheriff sniffling] Oh, dude, are you crying?
Sheriff: [angrily] No, I'm HAPPY! I don't have to watch him every second of the day anymore! I'm glad he's gone! [Red speeds away crying, upset at the Sheriff's remarks and knocks down a stack of tires]
Lightning McQueen: [appearing out of nowhere] What's wrong with Red?
Mater: [completely oblivious to Lightning's presence, while everyone gasps] Oh, he's just sad 'cause you left town and went to your big race to win the Piston Cup that you always dreamed about your whole life, an' get that big ol' sponsor, and that fancy helicopter you was talkin' about. [after about a 5-second pause, he gasps] Wait a minute! [everyone (except Sheriff) laughs] I knew you wouldn't leave without saying goodbye!

Lightning McQueen: Wow, this organic fuel is great! Why haven't I heard about it before?
Fillmore: IT'S A CONSPIRACY, MAN! The oil companies have got a grip on the Government! They're feeding us a bunch of lies, man!
McQueen: Okay...I'll take a case!

[when the media finally tracks down Lightning McQueen at Radiator Springs, a horn honks, and the press clear the way for Mack]
Mack: YOU'RE HERE! Thank the manufacturer, you're alive!
Lightning McQueen: Mack?!
Mack: You're here! I can't believe it! [chuckles] You are a sight for sore headlights! I'm so sorry I lost you, boss. I'll make it up to you...
Lightning McQueen: Mack, I-I can't believe you're here!
Harv: Is that the world's fastest racing machine?
Lightning McQueen: Is that Harv?
Mack: Yeah, he's in the back. [Lightning McQueen drives off]
Houser Boon: Show us the bolt!
Houser Boon: Where's the old McQueen?!
Mack: Actually, this is my good side here.
Lightning McQueen: Harv! Harv! [Mack's trailer door opens] Harv?
Harv (US): Kid, I'm over here!
Harv (UK): Oi! I'm over here!
Lightning McQueen: How you doin', buddy?
Harv: My star client disappears off the face of the earth! How do you think I'm doing?!
Lightning McQueen: Harv, I can explain...
Harv (US): I'm doing great! You're everywhere, baby, radio, TV, the papers! You can't buy this kind of publicity! What do you need me for?! That's just a figure of speech by the way you signed a contract. Where are you?! I can't even find you on my GPS.
Harv (UK): I'm doing great, you're everywhere, radio, TV, papers, you can't buy this kind of publicity, what do you need me for?! Uh oh, that is just a figure of speech obviously I mean, you did sign a contract, but where are you?! I can't even find you on my sat nav!
Lightning McQueen: I'm in this little town called Radiator Springs. You know Route 66? It's still here!
Harv (US): Yeah, that's great, kid, playtime is over, pal. While the world's been trying to find you, Dinoco has had no one to woo. Who are they gonna woo?
Harv (UK): Yeah, yeah, that's great, but listen, mate, playtime is over, while the world's been trying to find you, Dinoco has had no one to woo. Who are they gonna woo?!
Lightning McQueen: Chick...
Harv: Bingo in fact, check out what's on the plasma right now. [shows news report]
Cameramen: Show us the thunder!
Chick: You want thunder? YOU WANT THUNDER?! Ka-chicka, ka-chicka!
Lightning McQueen: Hey, that's my bit!
Harv (US): You've gotta get to Cali, pronto! Just get out of Radiation Stinks now, or Dinoco is history, you hear me?
Harv (UK): You've gotta get to LA, pronto, just get out of Radiation Stinks now or Dinoco is history, seriously!
Lightning McQueen: Just give me a second here, Harv.
Harv (US): No, no, wait, where are you going?! Get in the trailer, baby! Kid, you wa... You want a bigger trailer?!
Harv (UK): No, no, no, no, hey, wait, where are you going?! Get in the trailer!
Lightning McQueen: Sally, I... I want you to... Look, I wish... Ahhhh.
Sally: Thank you. Thanks for everything.
Lightning McQueen: Ah. Haha. It just a road.
Sally: No. It was much more than that.
Mack: Hey, kid! We gotta go! Harv's goin' CRAZY! He's gonna have me fired if I don't get you in the truck right now!
Lightning McQueen: Mack, just... hold it for...
Sally: You should go.
Lightning McQueen: I know, but...
Sally: Good luck in California. I hope you find what you're looking for.

Lightning McQueen: [sees Radiator Springs crew at the pit stop] Guys, you're here! I can't believe this!
Doc Hudson: I knew you needed a crew chief, but I didn't know it was this bad.
McQueen: I thought you said you'd never come back.
Hudson: Well, I really didn't have a choice; Mater didn't get to say goodbye.
Mater: [yelling into the microphone] GOODBYYYEEE!!! Okay, I'm good.

Chick Hicks: I am not coming behind from you again, old man! [does a PIT maneuver on Strip Weathers]

[Lightning McQueen and Doc Hudson racing at Willy's Butte]
Doc Hudson: Whoo-ah! Well, you sure ain't no dirt boy.
Lightning McQueen: Not today, old man. I know all your tricks. [Doc suddenly swerves off the track; McQueen looks for him] Doc! Doc!
Doc Hudson: [jumping over Lightning's head and back onto the track] YEEEHAAAAA! Not all my tricks, rookie!

[The residents of Radiator Springs enter the Drive-In Theater, watching a film called Toy Car Story]
Woody Car: YOU - ARE A TOY... CAAAAAAAAR!!!!
Buzz Lightyear Car: You are a sad, strange little wagon, and you have my pity. Farewell! [drives away]
Woody Car: Oh, yeah!? Well, good riddance, you loony!
Hamm Car: Hey, I hate to break up the road rally, guys, but THEY'RE HERE! Birthday guests at three o'clock!
Mack: [chuckling] Man, whoever does the voice of that piggy truck, I'm telling ya: he's one great actor!
[Monster Trucks, Inc.]
Mike Car: We're banished, genius!! Stuck out here in this wasteland without chains!
Sulley Truck: But Mike, the Boomobile's in trouble. She needs our help!
Mike Car: You're still not listening?!?!
[Mike Car and Sulley Truck gasp, seeing the Abominable Snowplow]
Abominable Snowplow: Welcome to the himalayas! Snow cone?
Mack: Oh, that Abominable Snowplow is quite the comic thespian!
[A Bug's Life]
Flik Car: Just get in there. Go, go, go, go! CIRCUS CARS?! How can you be circus cars?!
P.T. Car: [appearing in front of the Circus Bugs] These are the lousiest circus cars in the world, and they're gonna make me rich!
Mack: Wait a minute here. They're just using the same actor over and over. What kind of cut-rated production is this?

[Post-credits scene: Van and Minny are lost in a desert, covered in dust, and with tumbleweeds stuck to their tires and inside Van's luggage carrier]
Minny: [moans] Oh, for the love of Chrysler! Can we please ask someone for directions?!
