Quotes and Lines
Julia Maddon: Life can be full of surprises.
Monarch: Racers should race, cops should eat donuts.
Little Pete: I find life to be full of people who think they’re smart ’cause they have a fancy accent. No offense.
Julia Maddon: Some taken.
Monarch: The two of you out there, flying across the country at killer speeds to prove something while you’re tearing up the American asphalt. Born to run, baby. Born to run.
Tobey Marshall: Beauty will go bingo on that route, so we’re gonna have to hot fuel and top off.
Joe Peck: Hot fuel, coming up. Woo! Get out there skinny boy.
Finn: Oh, you were checking me out!
Monarch: The thing you gotta understand is, racing is an art. Racing with passion… Dude, that’s high art. Man, I can feel love and vengeance and smell motor oil all swirling together out there. We got supernatural Mustangs, we got personal vendettas. I have no idea where this is going. I just know I like it. I like it a lot.
Julia Maddon: Get in. I’ll drive.
Tobey Marshall: I’ve seen you drive, and it’s terrifying.
Monarch: This is too good. I got star-crossed lovers hauling ass across the country. I got Dino Brewster who just painted a huge bull’s-eye on their ass. Oh, man. Christmas came early, wing nuts.
Tobey Marshall: The hits just keep on coming with you huh?
Julia Maddon: Never judge a girl by her Gucci boots.
Tobey Marshall: Her what?
Julia Maddon: High heels
Tobey Marshall: Why don’t you just say that?
Monarch: Hey, I’ve been doing some homework on this kid Tobey Marshall from Mount Kisco. This kid was a phenom. Used to tear up the local circuits. Him and his dad, man, they campaigned like champions. Of course, Mount Kisco had another great, Dino Brewster. You all know Dino. He went on to race in the big leagues at Indy, and Toby just kind of fell through the cracks. Well, here’s some news, cretins. Tobey’s been running again, and running fast. Real fast, fast as that “Grim Taquito” will take him. Tobey, you wanna fly with the eagles, you need bigger wings, son.
Benny: Alright beauty, this is gonna sound insane, but I need a 2 lane grasshopper in order to get these guys off your back.
Tobey Marshall: Roger.
Julia Maddon: What’s a grasshopper?
Tobey Marshall: You may wanna close your eyes for this.
Julia Maddon: Is it worse than bus, bus, bus?
Monarch: Kids, I’m looking at something that I can’t quite believe. I mean, my inbox is white hot. I got a bunch of trolls sending me footage of something that is mind-blowing. I’m looking at footage of a car that supposedly disappeared. That’s the same car that Ford and Shelby were building when Carrol died. I’m looking at a gorgeous ghost. And I think that’s Tobey Marshall inside there, driving a chariot of the gods.
