Over the Top (1987)
Lincoln Hawk: The world meets nobody halfway. When you want something, you gotta take it.
John Grizzly: When I get to the table, that person, I don't care who they are, they're my mortal enemy. I hate them.
Lincoln Hawk: What I do is I just try to take my hat and I turn it around, and it's like a switch that goes on. And when the switch goes on, I feel like another person, I feel, I don't know, I feel like a... like a truck. Like a machine.
Harry Bosco: My whole body is an engine. This is a fireplug
[makes a fist]
Harry Bosco: ... and I'm gonna light him up.
Bob 'Bull' Hurley: I drive truck, break arms, and arm wrestle. It's what I love to do, it's what I do best. Being number one is everything. There is no second place. Second sucks.
Michael Cutler: I don't believe this. All that talk about never giving up is all lies. You never believed it yourself. And what you said to me, remember? "Now is the time to do it for yourself". "The world meets nobody halfway". "If you want it, you gotta take it".
Lincoln Hawk: Mike, please. I...
Michael Cutler: Now is your chance, dad, don't you see? I don't care about what happened before, so you can stop trying to prove yourself to me. It doesn't matter if you win or lose, dad. I don't care about that. All I care about is being with you, dad... and I love you!
Michael Cutler: I'd like to say something, sir.
Lincoln Hawk: Sure.
Michael Cutler: This truck is disgusting!
Lincoln Hawk: I don't know, Mike, it's... just old.
Lincoln Hawk: Tell you the truth, the truck is, uh, you know, the most important thing for me. I... I don't really... it doesn't matter if I, uh, become the champion or anything. That's, that's not the most important... I... I need this truck.
Michael Cutler: How long will it take?
Lincoln Hawk: Well, I've got one more pick up. And say, two to three days, we'll be in California. And your mother doesn't go into surgery, say, until Wednesday morning.
Michael Cutler: Do you really think you can make up 10 years in two to three days?
Lincoln Hawk: No.
Bob 'Bull' Hurley: What are you doing with that guy?
Michael Cutler: He's my father.
Bob 'Bull' Hurley: Too bad.
Bob 'Bull' Hurley: Right now, double or nothing. What do you say?
Lincoln Hawk: Let's just wait for Vegas.
Bob 'Bull' Hurley: Come on, let's do it now. I feel like kicking some ass.
Lincoln Hawk: Let's wait till Vegas, okay?
Bob 'Bull' Hurley: You ain't got a *prayer* in Vegas!
Lincoln Hawk: We'll see.
Carl Adams: I should be able to blow them away real easy. There's a lot more technique involved and you can't beat experience.
Lincoln Hawk: He's staying with me! You tell him that! You tell him!
Mad Dog Madison: I'm not so enthused about people coming up and patting me on the back saying "you're the best". I don't need people to do that to me. If I win, its because I wanted to be the best one time in my life.
Lincoln Hawk: [to Michael] All I can say is I made a mistake. I know that. You know, sometimes that happens in life. We all make mistakes, but it won't happen again.
Jason Cutler: [to Hawk] Michael Cutler's my boy! You deserted him years ago, and that's a fact that you can't change, no matter what you do! *Damn you*!
Lincoln Hawk: You know, if you're hungry, there's a great place up here for good steak. What do you say we stop?
Michael Cutler: Sir, you're going to be the victim of cholesterol poisoning. Later in life, you'll just start to rot away.
Lincoln Hawk: You're just full of good humor, aren't ya Mike?
Lincoln Hawk: You lost back there because you beat yourself, you told yourself you couldn't win. You're my boy, now go back there and win.
Bob 'Bull' Hurley: [about Hawk] He doesn't even belong on my arm wrestling table. That's my area, that's my game, and he's got no shittin' business there. And all I want to do is hurt him, cripple him, get him off the table. And so he never dares try to compete against me again.
Michael Cutler: Grandfather always said you were a loser! Now you're trying to make me one and I hate you for it!
Lincoln Hawk: Mike, I don't care what your grandfather thinks about me, okay? All I care about is you!
Lincoln Hawk: What are you trying to do? I gave you custody of the boy, I signed papers, what more do you want?
Jason Cutler: I'm trying to make things easy for you, Hawk. You don't need Michael as a meal ticket anymore. You're on a free ride. So take the truck, take the money. Start a new life, *start your own family*!
Lincoln Hawk: I've got a family! When this is over, I'm coming to get him.
Michael Cutler: If I went with you, where would we go? Where would we end up?
Lincoln Hawk: Together is all I can guarantee. I'm just a father who messed up pretty bad, I know that. I've done things real wrong, now I want to try fix things up as best I can. I want to give... you... what's inside of me. I may not have much and I may never have a lot. But I've got something inside I want to give to the only person that means something to me... you.
