Cars (2006)
Lightning McQueen: I thought you said you'd never come back.
Doc Hudson: Well, I really didn't have a choice. Mater didn't get to say goodbye.
Mater: GOODBYE! Okay, I'm good.

Doc Hudson: Hey, was that floating like a Cadillac, or was that stinging like a Beemer? I'm confused. You drive like you fix roads: lousy! Have fun fishing, Mater.

Doc Hudson: I'll put it simple: if you're going hard enough left, you'll find yourself turning right.
Lightning McQueen: Oh, right. That makes perfect sense. Turn right to go left. Yes, thank you! Or should I say No, thank you, because in Opposite World, maybe that really means thank you.

Doc Hudson: Sheriff, why don't you get yourself a quart of oil at Flo's? I'll keep an eye on him.
Sheriff: Well, thanks, Doc! I've been feeling a quart low.

Doc Hudson: 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.
[McQueen is silent]
Doc Hudson: Uh-huh. I thought so.

Doc Hudson: All right, I wanna know who's responsible for wrecking my town, Sheriff. I want his hood on a platter! I'm gonna put him in jail 'til he rots. No, check that... I'm gonna put him in jail 'til the jail rots on top of him, then I'm gonna move him to a new jail and let that jail rot. I'm...
[Doc finally spots Lightning]
Doc Hudson: Throw him outta 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!

[listening to Lightning's complaints while hauling Bessie]
Doc Hudson: Music. Sweet music.

Lightning McQueen: Doc, hold it! Seriously, your driving's incredible!
Doc Hudson: Wonderful. Now go away.
Lightning McQueen: Hey, I mean it. You've still got it!
Doc Hudson: I'm asking you to leave.
Lightning McQueen: Come on. I'm a racecar, you're... a much older racecar, but under the hood, you and I are the same.
Doc Hudson: We are not the same! Understand? Now, get out!
Lightning McQueen: How could a car like you quit at the top of your game?
Doc Hudson: You think I quit?
[Turns a light on a framed newspaper headline: "CRASH! Hudson Hornet out for season"]
Lightning McQueen: Right. Your big wreck in '54.
Doc Hudson: They quit on me. When I finally got put together, I went back expecting a big welcome. You know what they said? "You're history." Moved right on to the next rookie standing in line. There was a lot left in me. I 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.
Lightning McQueen: Hey, look, Doc, I'm not them.
Doc Hudson: Oh yeah?
Lightning McQueen: No, I'm not.
Doc Hudson: 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. Uhuh, Didn't think so. These are good folk around here, who care about one another. I don't want 'em depending on someone they can't count on.
Lightning McQueen: Oh like you? You've been here how long and your friends don't even know who you are? Who's caring about only himself?
Doc Hudson: Just finish that road and get outta here!

Sally: You called them?
Doc Hudson: It's best for everyone, Sally.
Sally: Best for everyone, or best for you?

Lightning McQueen: [Bursts into Doc's clinic] Hey, have you seen the Sheriff?
[Sees Sheriff on the hydraulic lift, his undercarriage exposed]
Lightning McQueen: Oh! Oh, my gosh!
Doc Hudson: What are you doin'?
Sheriff: Get a good peek, city boy?
Lightning McQueen: I-I just needed my daily gas ration from the Sheriff.
Doc Hudson: Well, wait for him at Flo's. Now, get out of here.
Lightning McQueen: I've been trying to get out of here for three days!
Sheriff: Hope you enjoyed the show!

Doc Hudson: [Doc and Lightning are racing in the dirt] Yeeehaa! Well, you sure ain't no dirt boy.
Lightning McQueen: Not today, old man. I know all your tricks.
[Doc suddenly swerves off screen]
Lightning McQueen: [looking for him] Doc! Doc?
Doc Hudson: [Flies over Lightning] YEEEHAAAAA! Not ALL my tricks, rookie!

Lightning McQueen: Whoa, whoa, whoa! How long is this gonna take?
Doc Hudson: Well, if the fella does it right, it should be about five days.
Lightning McQueen: Five days? But I should be in California shmoozing Dinoco right now!
Doc Hudson: Then if I were you, I'd quit yappin' and start workin'!

Doc Hudson: The sign says "Keep Out".
Lightning McQueen: You have three Piston Cups! How could you have...
Doc Hudson: I knew you couldn't drive. I didn't think you couldn't read.
Lightning McQueen: You're the Hudson Hornet!
Doc Hudson: Wait over at Flo's like I told ya.
Lightning McQueen: I can't believe I didn't see it before. You're the Fabulous Hudson Hornet! You hold the record for most wins in a single season. Oh, man, we gotta talk. You have to show me some of your tricks.
Doc Hudson: I already tried that.
Lightning McQueen: I can't believe it. Just look at those trophies!
Doc Hudson: You look. All I see is a bunch of empty cups.

Doc Hudson: These are good folk around here who care about one another. I don't want them depending on someone they can't count on.

Sheriff: You see son, the only thing to be scared of out here is your imagination.
Doc Hudson: Yep. That, and of course, the Screaming Banshee. Well, good night!
All cars: Good night!
[All drive off, except Mater, then all lights shut off]
Tow Mater: The screaming what?
[shakes]
