Buford T. JusticeEdit

  • Let me tell ya somethin', Junior. If you ever embarrass me like that again, I'm gonna get an ax, and you're never gonna have to open your fly again.
  • Ya know if Junior is able to get up in the morning, tie his shoelaces and take a pee, I'm not proud. I'm amazed.
  • [still pursuing, in a bus] You're not getting away from me, Bandit! I'll chase you in hot-pursuit to the ends of the earth! You sumbitch!

Cledus SnowEdit

  • [twenty 18-wheelers are on a crash course with about 50 police cars] Welcome to the biggest game of chicken, boys!


  • Cledus has a heart, he cares about something other than himself.


Junior: Daddy, look at that big ugly alligator.
Buford T. Justice: That reminds me; I gotta call yo' mama tonight.

Junior: You know, Daddy, I like this place. All the 'gators and snakes and stuff. Why don't we move down here?
Buford T. Justice: Why don't YOU move down here?
Junior: Oh no, Daddy, I ain't NEVER leavin' home, that's a promise.
Buford T. Justice: Don't you ever, EVER threaten yo' daddy like that again!

Buford T. Justice: Junior! Why didn't you have your gun loaded?
Junior: When I put bullets in it, Daddy, it gets too heavy.

Buford T. Justice: [leaning against his car with his gun pointed at Bandit] Well as you can see, Bandit, I've got my piece in my hand.
"Bandit": You've got your WHAT in your hand?

Junior: Daddy, I got to pee-pee.
Buford T. Justice: Swallow it. I'm busy!

Junior: You know, Daddy, I don't think the Bandit's really bad. I think the trouble is he just got in with real bad company.
Buford T. Justice: Bad company? Let me tell ya somethin', Junior. When you raid a cathouse, you take the piano player too.

Cledus Snow: [Bandit is being chased a lot of police and Cledus is heading straight for them in his truck] Tell me, how many trucks do you see?
"Bandit": I see one, unless I've been drinking.
Cledus Snow: [yells in the CB] Okay, boys... do it, to it! [19 trucks emerge from behind Snowman's truck] Well, I must be commode-hangin' drunk, coz I see a ton o' trucks. Ha ha!

"Bandit": Hi, Buford!
Buford T. Justice: Hello, you handsome sumbitch!

[Junior has just caused a roller coaster to collapse]
Fairground Owner: Sir! I'm the owner of this, of, of... of this mess.
Buford T. Justice: What are you tryin' to tell me? I'm in hot pursuit.
Fairground Owner: I would like to say just... one thing... We're closed!
Buford T. Justice: Get in the car, Junior. We're surrounded by a mental case.

[the gang learns that Charlotte the elephant is pregnant]
Cledus Snow: Well, I suppose we'd better keep our eyes open.
Doc: For what?
Cledus Snow: [laughing] For the biggest goldang stork you ever seen!

"Bandit": [finding out Charlotte's pregnant] Who did it?
Cledus Snow: Don't look at me.
Doc: Probably another elephant.
"Bandit": I know that, when did it happen?
Doc: Long time ago.

Buford T. Justice: [over Bandit's CB radio, just after the showdown in the desert] You ain't getting away from me Bandit, I'm still in hot pursuit!
"Bandit": I copy that Buford....but from what I hear your pursuit ain't that hot! [cuts to Justice's car, which is revealed to be a barely driveable wreck that has been bent in half with no roof]


  • The Bandit is back and better than ever!
  • It's another race against time for Burt, Sally and Jackie!
