Speed RacerEdit

Kid

  • Can I come with you, Rex?
  • But the Mach 5's your car!
  • Are you going to the track? Mom said you were, you don't have to drop me off, I can just go with you.
  • Hey, you wanna see my car collection?
  • He was driving a 68 Fendersend, sweet set of wheels.

Adult

  • I don't know why I'm doing it anymore.
  • Get that weak shit off my track!
  • Have any of these drivers read the rulebook?
  • Watch the backdraft!
  • Hey, all I was doing was saving your ass.
  • If you know so much, why don't you tell me why I should keep racing?
  • When I'm driving a T-180 I don't know, everything just makes sense.
  • Okay, Mr. Two-time-Grand-Prix-five-time-WRL-future-Hall-of-Fame, teach me something.
  • Lesson's over. See you at the finish line.

Racer X/ Rex RacerEdit

Rex Racer

  • No way Speed, Pops would kill me.
  • Hey Speedy.

Racer X

  • SPEED!
  • If you say so.
  • I'm sorry, that's for you to find out. I just hope that when you do, that I'm there to see it.
  • Wa-watch the blind side!
  • A CIB man will be posted outside your room. We got their attention today. You and Trixie should be very careful.
  • What's he doing here?
  • Do what he'd do. Break his legs and let him walk back.
  • Are you kidding? Every one of us has to find a reason to do this. You don't climb into a T-180 to be a driver; you do it because you're driven.
  • It doesn't matter if racing never changes. What matters is if we let racing change us.
  • If I did, it's a mistake I'll have live with.
  • Don't fall apart yet... There's still a lot of race to run.

Taejo TogokhanEdit

  • Stowaway, we weren't sure what to do with him.
  • If we drive tomorrow...Like we drove today, WE WILL LOSE! You will get nothing. All of this will be Meaningless!
  • Speed, what are you doing?
  • Where have you been?
  • (Repeated Twice) No, Please!
  • I understand. People make mistakes.

DialogueEdit

Mom: Distracted?
Speed's Teacher: No, that's not exactly right. Your son seems to be interested in only one thing. All he talks about, all he seems capable of thinking about, is automobile racing.
Mom: Well, you know, his father designs racing cars.
Speed's Teacher: And where is your husband?
Mom: Working. He couldn't be here.
Speed's Teacher: Perhaps the apple hasn't fallen very far from the tree.

Ben Burns: [to Speed, in the Fuji locker room] Hey, kid.
Speed: Ben Burns?...
Ben Burns: Nice race. I ain't seen moves like that in a long time.
Speed: [pause] Didn't matter. I still lost.
Ben Burns: Yeah. Tough break.
[Pause]
Ben Burns: Well. Good luck. [turns to leave]
Speed: [pause] Mr. Burns, can I ask you something?
Ben Burns: Sure, kid.
Speed: The '43 Prix. Did you know you were gonna win?
Ben Burns: [pause] Y'know, everybody thought that me and Stickleton hated each other. Funny, ain't it?

Royalton: [on the phone to Cruncher Block] Ineptitude. IS THIS WHAT I PAY YOU FOR?!?!
Cruncher Block: They ain't chequered yet.
Royalton: If they do, I assure you, it will be a very costly mistake for everyone!

Racer X: Are you hurt?
Taejo: N...N..No.
Racer X: Then get up.

Speed: [finding him hiding in his truck] Spritle!
Trixie: You little sneak!
Spritle: It wasn't my idea!
Speed: Oh no?
Spritle: [pointing to Chim-Chim, who points back] It was his.
