We're going the wrong way! Turn around!
Just call me Marty-o Andretti!
No, you're Sucky-o Andretti!
Stop back-seat driving!
I'm passenger-seat driving, and I want the wheel! Give me the wheel!
It's not a wheel, it's my baby!
Your hooves aren't meant to be on a wheel!
It's too late for you to drive now!
