Jake Speed (1986)
Pop: There are a few, a very few men. Remo. Mack Bolan. Jake Speed. In this case, I think Jake Speed's the man for the job.
Wendy: Maybe it's a blessing. At least your grandfather believes in somebody. Speedy Jake. Remero. Whatever. Who are our heroes?
Margaret Winston: Nobody.
Desmond Floyd: Why doesn't she believe in us? We believe. That's why we win.
Newsstand Attendant: [while helping customers] Sure he's real. Everybody knows that. In fact, I play cards with him every Thursday night. Me, Jake Speed, Batman - thanks - oh, Sherlock Holmes and, once in a while, Superman stops in.
Jake Speed: If all this were about money, I'd be working for the wrong side most of the time.
Margaret Winston: I didn't know you had that!
Jake Speed: That's why they call it a concealed weapon.
Margaret Winston: Who is Reno Mellon?
Jake Speed: We made it up!
Desmond Floyd: It's Jake's favorite town and my favorite breakfast food.
Margaret Winston: What if you sold me to the wrong guys?
Jake Speed: That would make a piss-poor story, wouldn't it?
Margaret Winston: If you're such a big deal, why haven't they ever made a movie?
Jake Speed: Ever try to deal with those people?
Sid: Being the good guy's so predictable. You do everything right!
Jake Speed: We were gonna fight our way through enemy territory. Scale the highest mountain in this goddamned place. Traverse a bridge that was about to collapse. And then if we were lucky, I mean really lucky, we were gonna fight our way through two thousand extremely poisonous snakes.
Margaret Winston: There are thousands of snakes around here?
Jake Speed: There's gotta be if you look hard enough!
Margaret Winston: Has it ever occurred to you that there might be an easier way?
Jake Speed: Yeah, so where's the entertainment value in that?
Jake Speed: Why do you think bad things happen? So you have something good to look forward to! If everything was same-o, same-o, you'd die of boredom!
Jake Speed: Don't worry. When you're right, nothing can happen to you.
Wendy: Isn't that the guy your grandfather was talking about, the guy from the comic books?
Desmond Floyd: Paperback novels!
Sid: Make sure Ali Baba gets his babes. I've got a reputation to protect.
