Quotes

Police helicopter pilot: [after Steve's cornered] Good run! Sharp through Sweeper, clean past Deadman's, a little sloppy through Grandstand, but I gotta tell you something, asshole. You are in violation of Section 148 of the Penal Code: Evading arrest. Section 22349 of the Vehicle Code: Maximum speed limit. Section 22350: Basic speed law. Section 23109B: Exhibition of speed.

[the pilot keeps reading violations, but Steve turns his car stereo up to drown it out]

Steve: [Opening lines, voiceover] 23 miles of Mulholland, slicing Los Angeles like a knife... it's like a trip in time. Sometimes I just can't wait for night. You see too much in the sunshine. Road's changin'... civilization's choking it. At night, the straightaways are shorter... turns sharper... the drop steeper. It's the only place I ever felt safe. Clear, clean... and fast. Freedom. I wonder who it'll be tonight? I hope he's fast.
