Speed Racer (2008)
Pops Racer: You think you can drive a car and change the world? It doesn't work like that!
Speed: Maybe not, but it's the only thing I know how to do and I gotta do something.

Speed: [to Royalton] Racing's in our blood. Like for Pops, it isn't just a sport. It's way more important than that. It's like a religion. And in our house, the major sponsors are kind of like the devil. I don't mean to offend you, sir, and I do appreciate your offer, but after all we've been through, I don't think this kind of deal is for me.

Speed: Racing hasn't changed, and it never will.
Racer X: It doesn't matter if racing never changes. What matters is if we let racing change us. 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.

Trixie: Since when did winning become so important?
Speed: It is important. You gotta win if you want to keep driving, and that's what I want to do. It's the only thing I really know how to do.
Trixie: That's not true.
Speed: Come on, I wouldn't have made it out of high school without your help.
Trixie: Okay, that's true.

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

Speed: Okay, no more Mr. Nice Guy!

Speed: Haven't any of these drivers read the rule book?

Speed: I thought we made a good team today. It felt like we've been doing it for a long time.
Racer X: If you say so.

Speed: It's going to be okay.
Mom: You wouldn't lie to your mother, would you?
Speed: Never again.

Pops Racer: This is abso...
Speed: ...lutely crazy!

Pops Racer: I couldn't have been more proud of you, son. Not because you won, but because you stood up, you weren't afraid, and you did what you thought was right.
Speed: It didn't amount to anything. It was completely meaningless.
Pops Racer: How could it be meaningless? I saw my son become a man. I watched a man with courage and integrity drive the pants off of every other driver on that road. This is not meaningless. This is the reason for a father's life.

Speed: [shouting at Pops] Don't take it out on me because you feel guilty about what happened to Rex!

Mom: Do you remember the day that you rolled the car? How upset I was?
Speed: [laughing a little] I remember. Rex said the only reason we survived was because I was wearing those red socks.

Speed: Sounds beefy, Pops.

Sparky: [as Speed preps for a race] How are you feeling?
Speed: [as he observes the coliseum] It's big.
Sparky: Hey, this cockpit is the exact same size as it was at Thunderhead.
Speed: Right.
Sparky: [pauses] Just wanted to say thanks, for what could be the most exciting moment of my life.
Speed: Couldn't have gotten here without you.
[they hug]

Speed: [to Mom Racer] Maybe Royalton is right. Maybe racing really is all about the business, and anyone who doesn't understand that is just a chump.

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.
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?

Mr. Royalton: I hope I didn't scare you, Speed, by showing you how hard we push our team. I just want you to see how serious we are about winning.
Speed: [long pause] I get that.

Speed: [At Cannonball Taylor] Ok, Mr. two-time-Grand-Prix five-time-WRL future-Hall-of-Fame, teach me something!

Speed: I'll see you at Fuji.
Mr. Royalton: Yes, and you'll find out you just made the biggest mistake of your life.

Mr. Royalton: So. I can see you've been giving some serious thought to this thing.
Speed: [pause] I have. Yes, sir.
Mr. Royalton: Good. That means you understand we're talking about not just your future, but your family's future.
Speed: My family means a lot to me.
Mr. Royalton: I know. I can tell. That's why this is so important, because you can help them. All you have to say is yes. That's all I need to hear. And I can make so many things happen, for you *and* your family.
Mr. Royalton: You ready for that? You ready to say yes, Speed?

Speed: [to Trixie, about Rex] I finally understand it now, Trix. I know why he left us. He was trying to change this rotten business and they killed him for it.

Racer X: [about Rex] I'm sure if he were here, he'd be immensely proud of you.
Speed: For what? Making the same mistakes he did?
Racer X: For trying to make a difference.

Speed: [racing against Cannonball Taylor] Get that shit off my track!

Speed: [driving] Racing hasn't changed. And it never will.

[during closing credits]
Speed: Okay, Chim-Chim, go!

[during closing credits]
Speed: Why don't you try to win this race fair and square?

[during closing credits]
Trixie: Speed, are you all right?
Speed: Never mind that Trixie, I gotta get you out of here!
Trixie: You're wonderful, Speed!

Young Speed: [dazed after crashing] Who are you?
Young Trixie: I'm Trixie. I'm in your class.
Young Speed: Oh yeah. Hey, you want to see my car collection?
Young Trixie: I'd love to!

Rex: [to young Speed, on the track at Thunderhead] Feel that shimmy? That's your hind legs trying to outrun your front.
Young Speed: What do I do?
Rex: Stop steering, and start driving.

"Speed Racer: The Trick Race (#1.50)" (1968)
Captain Terror: We've been waiting for you, Speed. As you can see, we've accepted your letter challenging us to one more race. And this time you will lose, lose badly!
Speed Racer: Wait, what do you mean MY letter challenging you? I got a letter from YOU challenging me to one more race! That's why I'm here! I accept the challenge and I'm gonna win this time too!
Captain Terror: No, you won't! We are the greatest racers in the world and this time we'll prove it!
Speed Racer: You failed to prove it the last time we met and you'll fail again! I'm warning you, I'm gonna win!
Captain Terror: We'll see! Come on, Speed! Let's go!

Racer X: I've got to reach Speed before those time bombs on the Car Acrobatic Team's cars go off!

Mr Magneto: Well, we've been waiting for you, Racer X! Or should I say Rex Racer, the international secret agent?
Racer X: What's the idea of stopping me?
Mr Magneto: Oh, very sorry, but this was the only way we could stop you and now we're going to get rid of you forever. You'll never interfere with us again! After him!

Racer X: Faster! You've got to go faster! We don't have much time left!
Speed Racer: I hope we reach the spies' headquarters before those bombs go off! We've got to!

Racer X: Look! There it is! There's their hideout!
Captain Terror: As soon as we surround it, we'll get away from these cars!

Captain Terror: Abandon your cars! Run for your lives!
Mr Supremo: What was that? Magneto, didn't you hear something just now?
Mr Magneto: It's probably the wind howling through those mountains.
Mr Supremo: Ah.
[big explosion]
Speed Racer: They're finished!

Speed Racer: [narrating] The story really begins a year ago, when I was driving in the Alpine Race against teams from all over the world. It was a gruelling race over treacherous mountain trails, and because of their skill and unique cars my closest competitors were members of the Car Acrobatic Team. I took advantage of every fair opportunity to pull into the lead. It was dangerous on that ice. Seeing the Car Acrobatic Team in action was an unforgettable sight, but Racer X warned me about them...
Racer X: Don't race against them! To win, they'll stop at nothing!
Speed Racer: Many racers were knocked out of the race and Racer X and I barely managed to cross the finish line. The Car Acrobatic Team suffered heavy losses and it was then that their leader vowed vengeance...
Captain Terror: You have beaten us, Speed Racer, but I solemnly swear you will pay for our defeat! We shall meet again someday and when we do, we shall not only defeat you but you will be destroyed!

Racer X: Speed, a race is not a fight! Don't accept the challenge of the Car Acrobats!
Speed Racer: How'd you find out about the race, Racer X?
Racer X: Never mind! You're a professional racer and a professional racer doesn't fight, he races! And he doesn't hold private grudge races! Go home and forget about a grudge race against the Car Acrobatic Team!
Speed Racer: I can't! They'll think I'm afraid to accept their challenge to another race. They'll think I can't beat them again. Now get out of the way!
Racer X: Speed, don't be a fool! Speed!

[in a flashback, Rex crashes a car in a race]
Pops Racer: He smashed the car!... Is he hurt? Rex! Rex, are you all right?
Rex Racer: Yes, Pops, I am!
Pops Racer: I'm so glad you weren't hurt, Rex!
Rex Racer: I would have won if I hadn't skidded! I deserve to be the winner! I was ahead all the way! Well, I'm going to continue racing and someday I'll be the champion of the world!
Pops Racer: You're much too young yet! I forbid you to be a professional racer until you're older and have more experience behind the wheel!
Rex Racer: You can't stop me from racing, Pops, it's in my blood and I'm going to continue doing it!
Pops Racer: You'll do what I say! And I forbid you to do anymore racing until you're grown up!
Rex Racer: Pops, no matter what you say I'm gonna continue being a professional racer!
Pops Racer: That's no way to talk to your own father! I forbid you to race right now, and that's final!
Rex Racer: Then I'm sorry, Pops. You give me no choice but to run away from home! Goodbye, Pops!
[runs off]
Pops Racer: Rex, don't be a fool! All I'm asking is to wait a few more years until you've gained experience!... All right, if you feel that way, then stay away!

[the Car Acrobat Team pulls into a narrow one-lane road, followed by Speed Racer]
Captain Terror: [laughs] This road is so narrow, he can't pass us and pull into the lead!... HUH?
[Both opponents come to a halt because of a car in the middle of the lane... ]
Racer X: Ohhh...
Captain Terror: What's the idea of blocking the road? Can't you see we're in the middle of a race? Get your car out of the way!
Speed Racer: Wait a minute, that man's Racer X!
Racer X: You've got to stop the race immediately! There are time bombs planted in every one of your cars!
Captain Terror: Time bombs? What are you talking about?... Racer X, what's the matter with you? You've been hurt!
Speed Racer: Huh? Racer X is hurt?
[jumps from his car]
Racer X: Don't worry. I'll be all right. I found out that the challenging letters you each got were phonies, you didn't write them to each other.
Captain Terror: Well, all I know is that I didn't write a letter to Speed challenging him to a race, I got one from HIM!
Speed Racer: But I didn't write it!
Racer X: Both those letters were sent by the International Spies to trick me into coming here. They want to get rid of me.
Captain Terror: This means you need help, Racer X! Speed, let's call off this race and help him, what do you say?
Speed Racer: Good idea, I'm all for it! And we'll race against each other some other time!

Captain Terror: Come on, let's try to find the spies!
Racer X: Don't forget about the time bombs! They were planted in your cars and they're timed to go off within the next hour! Keep away from your cars!
Captain Terror: We've got to use our cars right now. We'll have to chance it that the bombs won't go off for a while yet! Do you know where the spies' headquarters is?
Racer X: Yes.
Captain Terror: We'd never be able to find it in a hurry, we'll need you to show us the way. Are you strong enough to do that?
Racer X: Uh-huh...
Captain Terror: Good! We'll use my car! We'll take their own time bombs back to them, and give them a taste of their own medicine!

Captain Terror: Racer X, how can we thank you? If it hadn't been for you, our race with Speed would have ended in disaster! We would have been blown up with our cars!
Racer X: Well, now at least we're rid of those spies. They won't be able to cause any more trouble in the countries of the world, and we can have peace...

Captain Terror: Speed, we'll meet again and when we do, I wish you luck!
Racer X: When you meet again, I'm sure Speed will beat you again!
Captain Terror: That's what you think! Come on, let's go.

Speed Racer: Racer X!
Racer X: Yes, Speed, what is it?
Speed Racer: Are you my brother? Are you my brother Rex Racer?
[Racer X knocks him out]
Captain Terror: You ARE his brother! I can see the resemblance, even under that mask!
Racer X: I am. But even though I am his brother, I can't go home again. I'm giving up being a racer and from now on I'll be a full-time international secret agent without a name or country.
[removes his mask and places it in Speed's hand]
Racer X: Goodbye, Speed. I'll try to keep an eye on you and be nearby if you ever need help, no matter where you go...

[Speed wakes up and sees what's in his hand]
Speed Racer: Huh? The mask! I'm sure it belonged to my brother!... Huh? But where is he? What happened to my brother, Rex? REX! REX, WHERE ARE YOU?
Trixie: Speed, what is it? Did you find Rex at last?... There's no one there.
Speed Racer: [in tears] Rex, wherever you are, I promise to try to be the best racer in the world and to make you prouder of your younger brother! Goodbye, Rex!

"Speed Racer: The Most Dangerous Race: Part 3 (#1.11)" (1967)
[Speed tries to drive the Mach 5, but ends up stuck in a puddle]
Racer X: I can't leave him there like that. But what choice do I have? What can I do?

Speed Racer: Where is the car?
Snake Oiler: You're unable to see now? Well, isn't that just too bad?
[Speed starts crying]
Snake Oiler: Snap out of it! It looks as if I'm going to win the Alpine Race. You'd better wait here 'til somebody rescues you. I'm glad to say your racing days are over for good, Speed. Eh, I guess I proved I'm a much better driver than you, Speed. I'm on my way to victory!

Racer X: Speed, you're a brave young man. I'm proud to have you for a brother.

Speed Racer: Racer X! Are you hurt badly?
Racer X: I think my legs have been broken, Speed...
Speed Racer: Well, hang on to me. I'll try to get you into the Mach 5.
Racer X: Speed don't bother about me, you need help yourself. Your eyes must hurt you.
Speed Racer: Neither one of us will be able to go on with the race!

Racer X: Snake Oiler's the only one of the Car Acrobatic Team who's continuing in the race.
Speed Racer: Snake Oiler, huh? I want to beat him more than anything in the world!
Racer X: Your car's the only other one left. But you can't see and I can't even walk, so Snake is liable to win. But Speed, I have an idea that just might work!
Speed Racer: Huh?
Racer X: You be my legs and at the same time I'll be your eyes!
Speed Racer: Oh, I get it! You and I will be a team?
Racer X: Yes, maybe we can overtake Snake and win. Come on!

Speed Racer: It's hard to catch up to him. He's liable to win. If only I could see I'd go even faster!
Racer X: But Speed, you mustn't give up!
Speed Racer: Why not? I don't think I have a chance of beating him.
Racer X: Speed, you still have a chance to win! I can see something you can't: oil is leaking from Snake's car!
Speed Racer: Oil?
Racer X: If he keeps on going at his present speed, he's gonna blow up!
Speed Racer: He may notice the trouble though, and take time out to stop the leak...
Racer X: I don't think he'll even notice it, Snake's paying too much attention to the road in front of him!
Speed Racer: Then he'll be wiped out if his car blows up!
Racer X: Yes, it might be the end of him. But we're not going to help him, not if you want to win the race!
Speed Racer: It wouldn't be right. I've got to try to warn him, it's only fair!
Racer X: Okay. You're doing the right thing, Speed, in trying to warn him.
Speed Racer: Thanks.

Speed Racer: Snake, be careful, there's something wrong with your engine! You're leaking oil very badly!
Snake Oiler: I'm not falling for that trick! I'm not gonna stop!
Speed Racer: Snake, I'm not lying!
Racer X: [to Speed] He won't listen to you and you've done your best to warn him.

Racer X: Speed, you can be a great driver, but you can also be a great man. You value your life even higher than victory. The world needs more people like you. I'm proud to have you as a brother.

Speed Racer: Have you seen Racer X? I've got to find him to thank him.
Trixie: I saw him in the Mach 5 only a few minutes ago...
Sprytle: Nobody's in the car now!
Speed Racer: There isn't? That means he was able to walk away from it! His legs weren't broken, he just told me that so I'd let him help me drive! He deserves this trophy, not me!
Trixie: Oh, Speed, all that matters to me is you made it safely! Now let's go to the hospital and get your eyes taken care of!

Racer X: Speed, there's a broken bridge up ahead. Use your brakes.
Speed: Snake managed to get across it, didn't he? So will I!
Racer X: How? That bridge is falling apart! Speed, you'd better use the brakes before it's too late and we smash up!
Speed: Tell me when we get to the broken bridge. I'm going to try to get across it.
Racer X: The Acrobatic Team's cars have special equipment for flying, the Mach Five can't do it! Use the brake!
Speed: I'm giving her the gas!
Racer X: Stop! Speed, we can't make it. Jam on the brakes! Quick!
[Speed uses his autojacks to jump across the bridge and clears it]
Racer X: You made it! I don't think you would have been able to do it with your eyes open!
Speed: There was no other way, I had to make it. Now I gotta win!

"Speed Racer: The Most Dangerous Race: Part 2 (#1.10)" (1967)
Speed: I've got the toughest competitors I've ever seen against me. The Car Acrobatic Team can do everything with their cars. We all saw how they flew across that deep chasm with the river a thousand feet below. Not one of them crashed. Will I be able to make it?

[first lines]
Narrator: Speed is competing in the Alpine Race, the most dangerous race in the world! Favored to win is the tricky Car Acrobatic Team, consisting of seven daredevil drivers in cars equipped with ingenious wings. Their orders are to win the trophy, no matter what the cost!
Speed Racer: Well, now that Pops has redesigned the Mach 5 so that it's got small wings underneath, I may have a chance to beat the Car Acrobatic Team! Poor Pops, all that work was too much for him. I'm glad Trixie got him to the hospital and I hope he's all right. Now we're getting into the higher mountains. So far, so good, but it's going to be really dangerous up ahead...

Snake Oiler: With the heavy rain, parts of the course have been completely wiped away. It's gonna be tough!
Speed Racer: Maybe we can take another way...
Snake Oiler: There is no other way. And when we try to get through, we'll cause more landslides. Besides, our tires won't take hold of that wet ground. We've decided to draw lots to see which one of us goes first. It'll be more dangerous for each car following.
Speed Racer: It's a fair way to do it though.

[Three members of the Car Acrobat Team attempt to cross the chasm and fail]
Racer X: The drivers on the Car Acrobatic Team are supposed to better than that.
Snake Oiler: They are! Just watch! I'll show you! I'm gonna make the jump safely and prove to you what a fabulous driver I am!

Racer X: Well, I'm glad you're safe, Speed. But you only have one life, so you'd better be careful!

Racer X: Every time a driver tries to make it across, some more of the earth caves in. And it's going to be even worse when we try to make the jump. But as a professional racer, I've got to meet the challenge. If you're smart, you'll give up the race. But if you don't, good luck!

"Speed Racer: The Most Dangerous Race: Part 1 (#1.9)" (1967)
Speed: The brakes don't seem to work very well. But I checked everything carefully...

Snake Oiler: Hey, you must be Speed Racer!
Speed Racer: Huh?
Snake Oiler: I was told that you're one of the greatest racers in the world. Is that true?
Speed Racer: Who are you, anyway?
Snake Oiler: Snake Oiler's the name and I'm a pretty good racer myself. Why don't we ever race to see which one of us is better?
Speed Racer: Okay, let's go!

[after Snake just cleared a stack of cars, the highest stack ever piled]
Snake Oiler: I was just warming up! Everybody's going to have to do some fancy driving to beat that. How about you, Speed? Can you beat me?
Speed: I don't know...
Sprytle: Huh? What do you mean, Speed? You can beat him! Go ahead, try it! Are you scared?
Snake Oiler: You'd better not try it, Speed! Because if you crash, I'll lose my best competitor in the next Alpine Race!
Speed: I'll try!
Sprytle: Hooray! Hooray!

Trixie: Don't, Speed! You'll never make it!
Sparky: Trixie's right, Speed! Now, don't do it!
Trixie: Remember how important the big Alpine Race will be! If something happens to you now, you'll be out of it! Just look how high that stack is!
Speed: She's right. All right, if I'm going to beat Snake I'll beat him in the Alpine Race. I'll have a better chance to win that... Well, I've got to. I've got to win the Alpine Race!

Speed: I'm going to win! I'm going to beat Snake Oiler and every one of the Car Acrobatic Team! I'm going to drive even better than the best racer I've ever seen, Racer X!
Sprytle: Go, Speed, go!

[Racer X interrupts Speed in the middle of a training run]
Speed: What's the big idea, Racer X?
Racer X: I came to warn you. It's too dangerous!
[points at a landslide]
Racer X: Be careful of falling rocks like those. Last year, they wiped out a dozen drivers who could have crossed easily...
Speed: How?
Racer X: Just by keeping their minds on their driving and the obstacles in the way! But most drivers are worried about the cars ahead of them and how to catch up and pass them, so they sometimes forget to concentrate on the course itself. The plateau areas around here are very tricky: the ground is hard, but when it rains heavily, the ground loosens and changes and tires skid treacherously. Take my advice, Speed, otherwise this will be your last race. Very few cars ever reach the finish line. It's just too dangerous!
Speed: Then you don't think I can win, Racer X?
Racer X: You can only if you keep your mind on the hazards of the course! Oh, one more thing, Speed. Listen carefully. As you race down toward the big jump don't be going too fast, because you'll cause another landslide and crash down into the river. Also, when you reach the other side and start to climb again, don't try to go straight up toward the top. Zigzag along the slope. It takes longer, but it's safer, and in the long run you'll pick up some time. Remember, throughout the whole area there are patches of ice. One wrong twist of your steering wheel and that'll be the end of you. You'll find this is the toughest course you've ever raced and you'll need every ounce of experience and skill, Speed.
Speed: Thanks for the advice. I'll try to follow all of it, Racer X.
Racer X: Heh heh, because if you don't run a good race, I won't enjoy winning!
Speed: You'll be in the Alpine Race?
Racer X: Speed, I'm going to win the Alpine Race. I'm not going to give you a break, um-hmm.

"Speed Racer: Race Around the World: Part 2 (#1.52)" (1968)
Speed Racer: When I first started on the road of a professional racer, I had no idea how much training and skill and experience I would need, and how much help. I owe a debt of gratitude to Pops, Trixie, Spritle, Sparky, and even Racer X wherever he is...

Racer X: Speed suspected I'm his long lost older brother, but he never found out for sure. Now I'll be able to continue keeping an eye on him always. He's the greatest racing driver in the world now and he deserves the championship. I'm proud of him.

Speed Racer: Come on, Sparky, let's go! There are more races to be won!

"Speed Racer: The Fire Race: Part 2 (#1.17)" (1967)
Speed Racer: Racer X, why did you disguise yourself as a Kapetepekan?
Racer X: Hmm? I'll tell you. I was taught to drive mountainous roads by a Kapetepekan named Kabala. I knew none of the tricks of how to race along those tortured roads and broken trails when I first met Kabala. Every racing car driver in the world was afraid of him, but he was kind and helpful to me. He taught me various techniques which only he knew. And then, when I became a professional racing driver, I had a race with Kabala on a mountain path. Suddenly, before he had a chance to avoid it, there was a landslide. And his car fell into the valley below. I searched for him. But I never saw him again. So to return his kindness, I disguised myself as Kabala and try to protect the treasure of the Kapetepeks...
Speed Racer: ...and the borders of this land?
Racer X: That's right, Speed! This race was begun because someone didn't like Kapetepek keeping its borders closed. And if you win this race Speed, the borders of Kapetepek will be open to anybody in the world. The country will be ruined.
Speed Racer: That's nonsense! I'm getting back into the race! I don't care about any silly reason for racing like you just gave me! I'm racing to win, that's all! And I'm gonna do it! I'll see you at the finish line, Racer X! There's nothing you can say that will try to stop me from being the winner! Nothing!
Racer X: Speed, come back here! Listen to me! Speed!
Speed Racer: It's no use talking any further, Racer X! All I'm interested in is winning!

[Kadar's gang perishes in the lava]
Speed Racer: They were too greedy, and anyone who becomes too greedy is punished one way or another!

Racer X: [to Chief Zuma] I've risked my life to save your treasure. Now you gentlemen must come to some agreement! Compromise! Open your borders to the world SOME of the time!

"Speed Racer: The Man on the Lam (#1.31)" (1967)
Mr Stencher: All right, just give up the money nice and easy...
Speed Racer: If you want it so badly come and get it!
[firefight ensues]
Spritle: [drawing slingshot] If you want it so badly come and get it!
Speed Racer: Spritle get down!

Lawson Lamster: You saved my life... I don't really deserve it.
Speed Racer: I feel that everyone's life is worth saving!
Lawson Lamster: You risked your life to save me but it's useless, I'm too badly hurt!... I have one last request to ask: can you give my eyes to my daughter Delicia so that she can see again?
Speed Racer: You mean she's really your daughter?
[Lamster nods]
Speed Racer: Now I understand. Don't worry, your daughter will be all right!
Lawson Lamster: Remember what I asked... give my eyes to her.
[slumps down]
Speed Racer, Spritle: OH!

Delicia: What happened to that nice man?
Speed Racer: You mean Mr Lamster, huh?
Delicia: Is it true that he had something to do with my eyes becoming all better?
Trixie: Yes, but he had to go far away where we'll never see him again. And he said to tell you to look at the sky once each day and think of him. He'll know.
Delicia: Look up at the sky... what a nice idea!

"Speed Racer: The Secret Invaders: Part 2 (#1.39)" (1968)
Speed Racer: Well, that's the end of that terrible gang of assassins. They tried to assassinate Princess Gracious of Ambrocia and then President Montebank of Abalonia, but they failed both times. It's the end of that gang, but there will be others. As long as men seek power illegally, there will be evil things done in the world. But I'll do all I can to see that men like them never succeed! If everyone did the same, it would be a more peaceful world!

Racer X: Speed, listen to me: we worked together to get rid of those assassins, but from now on we're professional racers again and I'll do my best to win. I'll try to beat you!
Speed Racer: And I'll try to win!
Racer X: Good luck, the President's coming into his box to give the signal for the race to begin!

[as the race starts, both Speed and X reflect on their experiences]
Racer X: In a race, it's every man for himself!
Speed Racer: If he hadn't helped me I wouldn't be here today. But a race belongs to the best driver and I've got to prove it's me!

"Speed Racer: The Car in the Sky (#1.49)" (1968)
Speed Racer: There's nothing to eat on the island, so we can't hold out very long. This is one tough spot the Mach 5 can't help us out of. If only I could use the car radio... but that was broken in the crash. And I don't know which direction to send the homing robot, so that's out too. Even the cutters are useless, and the special wheels, even the oxygen tank! No, I'm afraid the Mach 5 can't help us...

Speed Racer: Now listen carefully to my plan, everybody! We could hang the Mach 5 under a bunch of the advertising balloons that we'll fill with hydrogen. Then we can hook a propeller to the Mach 5's engine. If my theory proves correct, we have sort of a makeshift dirigible, wouldn't we?

"Speed Racer: Challenge of the Masked Racer: Part 1 (#1.3)" (1967)
Speed: [about Racer X] He's raced against some of the top racers in the world and has beaten them just like that!
Trixie: I hope I get to see what he really looks like.
Speed: Sorry, nobody's ever seen him and they don't know his name or where he's from.

[at the Trans-Country race track, in the middle of the night]
Racer X: What are you doing here, Speed?
Speed: Practicing!
Racer X: You must not be in the race!
Speed: I will be! And I can beat you! I'll prove it!

"Speed Racer: The Supersonic Car (#1.35)" (1968)
Speed: Something's wrong with the car!
Pops Racer: WHA?

Hitman: Since I never like to attack an unarmed man, here's a gun!
[tosses a firearm over to Speed]
Speed: All of you, on one? How is that fair?
Hitman: Hey, you can't have everything!

"Family Guy: The Son Also Draws (#1.6)" (1999)
Pops Racer: [quick dialog] Speed, I do not think you should be in this race, hahaa! The Mach 5 is not ready, hahaa!
Speed Racer: But Pops, I must be in this race, hahaa!
Pops Racer: Very well. Gaah, you know I am not your real father, hahaa!
Speed Racer: [shocked look] Aaah!

Peter Griffin: Pack your bags up, the Griffins are heading to Big Apple!
Speed Racer: Haha! Did you hear? The Griffins are going to New York. Haha!
Man: This is not affecting us all! Haha!
Speed Racer: Haha!

"Speed Racer: Challenge of the Masked Racer: Part 2 (#1.4)" (1967)
Racer X: Speed, I hope you'll be the best driver in the world.

[Racer X drives off]
Speed Racer: One day I'll find out who you are. And then we'll have a race, just the two of us!

"Speed Racer: The Great Plan: Part 1 (#1.1)" (1967)
Ace Deucey: You better do as I say, otherwise I'll smash you right off the course! All I want is your windshield glass, give it to me or I promise you'll never reach the finish line!
Speed Racer: There's only one reason he wants the glass. I'll bet Pops hid the design on it. Come on! Take it off if you can!
Ace Deucey: A fool of a kid!

Speed: You are watching the most advanced design and one of the fastest racing cars in the world. It's called the Mach 5. Watch it really go!

"Speed Racer: Race the Laser Tank (#1.44)" (1968)
Cana: How are we going to get out of here, Speed?
Speed Racer: I don't know yet!

Henchman: Don't go that way, there's a dinosaur there!
Speed Racer: HUH?... There's no such thing!
[drives on ahead]
Speed Racer: [to himself] He had to be lying. Dinosaurs aren't real, not today...

"Speed Racer: The Race Against the Mammoth Car: Part 2 (#1.8)" (1967)
[after Speed, Trixie and Spritle are saved by Racer X]
Speed Racer: [looks hard at Racer X] There's something about him that reminds me of Rex, my brother...
Racer X: Can something be wrong? You're looking at me in a very strange way, Speed! Tell me, what's on your mind?
Speed Racer: Nothing.

[Cruncher Bloch is flying over the course on which is the Mammoth Car]
Cruncher Bloch's Henchman: Hey look at that, boss!
Cruncher Bloch: I know the scenery's gorgeous. Who cares?
Cruncher Bloch's Henchman: But I'm not looking at the scenery, I'm looking at the Mach Five.
Cruncher Bloch: You're dreaming!
Cruncher Bloch's Henchman: That's no dream, it's a nightmare.
Cruncher Bloch: I thought they got rid of them!
Cruncher Bloch's Henchman: They did, but something must have gone wrong, because that's the Mach Five.
Cruncher Bloch: Let's get a closer look.
[Bloch's plane skims very low over the Mach Five]
Speed: That pilot better learn to fly!
Trixie: I think he did it on purpose!

"Speed Racer: Race Around the World: Part 1 (#1.51)" (1968)
Greed Scrounge: Well, it won't be long now. I checked the rules very carefully.
Shade: And what did you come up with, Scrounge?
Greed Scrounge: Something very interesting. So where in the rules says there are rules saying it's forbidden to interfere with the other drivers? Nowhere!
Shade: Interesting!
Arabian Racer: Also, it won't matter how the winner wins so long as he wins. Some drivers might try to be dishonest, it seems to me. It's not fair to cheat to win!
Speed Racer: They might win, but they'd lose, too. They'd lose their honour.
Shade: Their honour?
Speed Racer: Sure! Who could be proud of winning if he cheated to win? It's not worth it. All the gold in the world isn't worth a man's honour. That's the most precious thing there is.
Shade: Out of what stupid book did you get that stupid idea? Little Mister Goody over there thinks he's smart with ideas like that...

Shade: I'm warning you, don't try to be smart!
Greed Scrounge: I think he needs more than a warning! Give him what he needs, Shade!
Shade: [gets ready to scrap] That'll be a pleasure! All right, you talk about honor because you're too scared to do everything you can to win?
Speed Racer: I'll win fair and square and no other way!
Shade: Yeah, well that's not the way I'm going to beat you up!
Speed Racer: Just remember, you started it!
Shade: And I'm gonna finish it!

"Speed Racer: The Car Hater (#1.26)" (1967)
Speed: Careful, Trixie! The speed limit for this road is only 80 miles per hour!
Trixie: Oh! I'm sorry, I wasn't even aware that I was going twice as fast!

Mr Trotter: All cars are weapons on wheels!
Speed: When they're driven right they're perfectly safe, sir.

"Speed Racer: The Desperate Racer (#1.42)" (1968)
Speed Racer: You're asking me to lose the Grand Prix?
Eloisa Hazard: Well, my brother wants you to lose and so do I, Speed.
Speed Racer: But that would be cheating and I've never done anything illegal in my life EVER! I'm going to have to ask you to leave!
[Eloisa faints]
Trixie: Speed, why did you yell at her?
Speed Racer: You know I'm angry because of what that girl asked me to do!

Speed Racer: If I don't keep this pineapple with me at all times I'll be disqualified from the race! So I'm sorry gentlemen, but you can't have it!

"Speed Racer: The Terrifying Gambler (#1.27)" (1967)
Speed Racer: You're the most dangerous man I've ever met and you're wacky!
Mr Fastbucks: No I'm not wacky, I'm a genius! And I'm about to become the richest man on Earth! Unfortunately you know too much, so I'm going to have to get rid of you permanently!

"Speed Racer: The Desperate Desert Race: Part 1 (#1.14)" (1967)
[after being accused of sabotaging Kim's car, and learning he was framed]
Speed Racer: I'll prove it! I don't have to do things like that to win races, I can win them fair and square! I've got to convince Kim I didn't blow up his car!

"Speed Racer: The Man Behind the Mask (#1.40)" (1968)
Sprytle: Are you going to show us more works of art?
Mark Meglaton: In a way, that's what they are!
[reveals a massive array of monumental missiles]
Speed Racer: These work of arts are terrifying!
Mark Meglaton: It depends on your point of view.

"Speed Racer: Mach Five vs. Mach Five: Part 2 (#1.23)" (1967)
Speed Racer: If that were an ordinary car I could catch up to it, but I can't when it's another Mach 5!
Dr Nightcall: Yes you can, Speed!
Speed Racer: Huh?
Dr Nightcall: Listen to me. I built the car exactly like your Mach 5, but you're forgetting one thing: the bomb is heavy and it will slow down the car enough for you to get a chance to catch up to it. But you've got to hurry! Every second counts! You must save the people in the city from being wiped out!
Speed Racer: Thank you, Doctor. I'll try.
Trixie: Go, Speed!

"Speed Racer: The Fastest Car on Earth: Part 1 (#1.20)" (1967)
Speed Racer: [driving the GRX] I've never driven so fast in my life! This speed is taking me into another dimension! It's fantastic!

"Speed Racer: Race for Revenge: Part 2 (#1.13)" (1967)
Trixie: Speed, I'm afraid!
Speed Racer: This is no time to act like a girl!

"Speed Racer: The Next Generation: The Beginning: Part 3 (#1.3)" (2008)
Conor: I know. We could borrow a car and return it after the race.
Speed: Great idea. Oh, hey, how do you feel about prison food?
Lucy: Well, maybe Spritle could help.
Speed: Nah, you heard him. No special treatment.
Conor: What's the point of being Spritle's nephew if you don't get special treatment?
Speed: I don't know. I'll bring it up at the next nephew rights meeting.

"Speed Racer: The Next Generation: The Secrets of the Engine: Part 2 (#1.23)" (2009)
heck if i know: What's your secret?
Speed: I go fast.

"Speed Racer: The Next Generation: The Beginning: Part 2 (#1.2)" (2008)
Speed: There's as much chance of me being related to Speed Racer as there as you being related to Darth Vader.
Conor: Oh, yeah? Chim Chim.
[Chim Chim puts a bucket on Conor's head]
Conor: [imitates Darth Vader] Speed, I am your father.

"Speed Racer: The Race Against Time: Part 1 (#1.28)" (1967)
Speed Racer: I'll try to win the next race Trixie, but right now I've got something more important to do! Even though I couldn't help Dr. Bone when he was alive, maybe I can still help him!

"Speed Racer: Girl Daredevil: Part 1 (#1.18)" (1967)
[first lines]
Speed Racer: For months, I've been driving in races all over the world. There have been a lot of bad crashes and I've had some close calls, but the danger is a part of racing, just as is the thrill of winning. I'll go on competing in races throughout the world, because wherever there's a challenge, I've gotta meet it!

"Speed Racer: Gang of Assassins: Part 1 (#1.32)" (1968)
Speed Racer: What are you doing here?
Racer X: Just a little sightseeing. By the way, I heard you had some trouble with a gang of assassins yesterday. Is that true?
Speed Racer: Yes, but how did you find out?
Racer X: Oh, a little bird told me about it.
[laughs to himself]
Speed Racer: I'd like to find out more about those mysterious men, Racer X!
Racer X: You're a professional racer Speed, and that's dangerous enough! Don't try to meddle in police business!
Speed Racer: But those men have a fantastic car and their driving is so skillful, I find it almost unbelievable!
Racer X: Just forget about them, Speed, they're too dangerous! Keep your mind on racing and you won't get into trouble! You were lucky to get away from them, but if you meet them again you might not be that lucky...
Speed Racer: Racer X. What a strange man. Sometimes he acts like a friend...
