[Bandit points to the bathroom]
'Bandit': You want a shithouse? It's in there.

Cledus Snow: Don't look at me.
Doc: Probably another elephant.
'Bandit': I know that, when did it happen?
Doc: Long time ago.

Doc: Sure, take her in the truck, make the baby go bada-bing, bada-boom, but I'll tell you this, I'm not going to be responsible.
[walks off muttering Italian]
Cledus Snow: [to the Bandit] Don't you understand English? He says you can't be shaking Charlotte around in that truck, she's gonna have a baby!
'Bandit': We're talking about $400,000, do you understand that? This is our last chance! $400,000!
Cledus Snow: I understand $400,000 and I would like to get my share of $400,000, but I ain't gonna kill an elephant to get it.

Cledus Snow: And you know that's just what you' gonna have to do.
'Bandit': What is WRONG with you idiots? You act like she's human!

Smokey and the Bandit Part 3 (1983)
Cledus Snow: I'm going to be the bandit! I get to wear the hat and drive the car! I love this! Gimme the car!

Cledus Snow: I get to be the bandit? I don't have to drive the truck, don't have to haul anything but my ass?

Dusty Trails: Is it just me or are you slowing down?
Cledus Snow: Maybe. Think of it this way, what good is the roadrunner without the coyote? What good would the fox be without the hound? What good is the Bandit without the Smokey?
