Sprytle: I know Speed can drive over that, but right now he's nothing but a scared chicken! Phooey!
Trixie: He's brave. It takes real courage to decide not to challenge Snake here, but to wait for the Alpine Race.
Sprytle: Hmm, seems complicated.
Trixie: You'll understand what I mean when it's time for that race.
Sprytle: I hope so.
Speed: The brakes don't seem to work very well. But I checked everything carefully...
Narrator: The dangerous Alpine Race is well underway and already there have been several bad crashes. Does Speed have a chance to win against the treacherous Car Acrobatic Team? And will Pops be alright? There are thrills and terrible dangers ahead!
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...
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.
Captain Terror: Members of the Car Acrobatic Team, tomorrow the Great Alpine Race begins. A race which we must not lose!
Car Acrobat Team: We will not lose! We will win!
