Carter: Who died Lee?
Lee: YOU!
Carter: Detective Yu?
Lee: Not Yu, you!
Carter: Who?
Lee: You!
Carter: Who?
Lee: Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth!?
Carter: Naw don't nobody understand the words that are comin' out of your mouth!

Carter: Lee, let me introduce you to Carter's Theory of Criminal Investigation: follow the rich white man!
Lee: Follow the rich white man?
Carter: Exactly, now you're learning. Every big crime has a rich white man waitin' for his cut. Now, in our case we know who the rich white man is. Steven Reign!
Lee: Who?
Carter: Steven Reign, the hotel billionaire, I saw him on Ricky Tan's boat. When the shootin' started he was way too cool. Now lemme tell you somethin', when shootin' starts, white people ain't that cool. They either runnin' around hidin' behind tables or screaming like, "AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!"
Lee: You sound like that all the time!
Carter: Let me tell you something about black people: When things go down, we keep our cool.
Lee: Maybe, but not like us Asians. We never panic.
Carter: Man when Godzilla comes y'all be trippin'. I've seen the movie, everyone goin' "gaicka, gaicka"!

[on top of the hotel roof, Lee is holding a "bomb"]

Carter: Throw it!
Lee: No! There is people down there!
Carter: Lee! Throw it!
Lee: Carter!
Carter: Lee!
Lee: Carter!
Carter: LEE!
Carter: Throw it!
Lee: No!

Kenny: [pointing to Carter and speaking Chinese] Why are you hanging with 7-11?
Lee: 7-11?
Kenny: Because his mouth never closes.
Carter: Hey! I heard that, I heard that. Don't be talkin' about me man.

Carter: There he is: Steven Reign. Living large in one of his penthouse suites. [Isabella walks in to Reign's room] That's her. That's the woman on Ricky Tan's boat. [hands the periscope to Lee]
Lee: He's leaving.
Carter: Oh, he'll be back.
Lee: How do you know?
Carter: You see how fine that woman is. He'll definitely be back. (lies down in bed)

[Lee notices Isabella taking off her bathrobe]

Carter: What's going on?
Lee: She.... uh.... is just standing around, not doing much.
Carter: Well stay awake, something bound to happen.
Lee: I try to stay awake...this is so boring. [While watching Isabella undress, whispers] Slow down baby....
Carter: What did you say?
Lee: Huh? Uh.... I said nothing!
Carter: You said something!
Lee: No, no, nothing.

[Carter notices Lee's shifting]

Carter: [gets up from bed] What is going on Lee?
Lee: She's.... getting undressed!
Carter: What?
Lee: She's getting undressed!

[Carter struggles with Lee to grab the periscope]

Lee: Hey! It's.... not-
Carter: LORD, HAVE MERCY! She's taking off her skirt!
Lee: I cannot hear this! [walks away]
Carter: Black bra, black panties, Victoria's Secret, spring catalogue, page 27. Girl's got class. [zooms in] She got a tattoo, that's cute. It looks like.... Snoopy.
Lee: Snoopy! I love Snoopy! [Tries to grab periscope]
Carter: I love Snoopy too, hold on. [Isabella opens the door for a delivery woman] Hey, that's the same person that dropped off the package at your office.
Lee and Carter: It's a bomb!

Carter: Now why'd you go and say it was a bomb?
Lee: I didn't, you did.
Carter: No I didn't!
Lee: Yes, you did!
Carter: I said she was da bomb.
Lee: She was the bomb?

Carter: Secret Service Agent James Carter! Boy that sounds good! Give me six months, SIX MONTHS, Lee, and I'll be up in Washington protecting the President.
Lee: Everyone knows you would never take a bullet for someone else.
Carter: Yeah, but they don't know that. Did you see the way she was looking at me brother?
Lee: She never even looked at you!
Carter: Don't be jealous, Lee. The girl chose me. 'Cause I'm tall, dark, and handsome and you third-world ugly.
Lee: I'm not third-world ugly. Women like me. They think I'm cute, like Snoopy.
Carter: Lee, Snoopy is six inches taller than you.

Carter: All right Lee.... tell me how they gonna kill us?
Lee: First they will torture us for three days-
Carter: I can handle that!
Lee: Then they will cut off our egg rolls
Carter: Cut off our egg rolls?! Aw hell no! Don't give up!

Carter: Whoa whoa whoa. Why are you giving me 500 dollar chips.
Dealer: I just assumed-
Carter: You assumed that a brother coming in here couldn't afford 1000 dollar chips. Do you think my ancestors suffered 362 years of slavery so we could get sent back to the cotton field with 500 dollar chips. Are you a racist?
Dealer: No sir, I'm not.
Pit Boss: Sir, why don't you calm down and win some money?
Carter: Why don't you go over there and count something.

Carter: How come you ain't got no black people performing in this casino? We ain't good enough for you?
Pit Boss: We got Lionel Richie performing here tonight!
Carter: Lionel Richie ain't been black since the Commodores! How about Peaches and Herb? Gladis Knight and the Pimps? Ike and Tina? They can get back together, this is crazy-
Pit Boss: Sir, please calm down.
Carter: [with hands wailing manically in the air] I'm sick, you tryin' to calm me down. Why don't you calm down? Get your hands off me!

Carter: [to Hu-Li] All right, I ain't gonna hold back this time 'cause you're a girl. I'll just pretend you're a man.... a very beautiful man with a perfect body, who I'd like to take to the movies.
Carter: [to Hu-Li after she's knocked out] We coulda been a good couple.... but you one crazy-ass bitch!

Lee: I didn't know what side you were on.
Isabella: Well, now you know. [smiles]

[In the penthouse, Lee has a gun pointed at Ricky Tan's Head]
Ricky Tan: Would you like me to tell you how your father died? [Lee cocks the gun]
Carter: Whoa, now, Lee. He ain't worth it man. He tryin' to mess with you. Don't do it.
Ricky Tan: He never begged for his life, or tried to make a deal.
Carter: Put the gun down.
Ricky Tan: All he asked for, seconds before I pulled the trigger, was that I promised not to kill you. Oh, it was so pathetic.
Carter Aw, hell no, he done gone too far. You better shoot his ass, Lee, shoot his ASS!
Ricky Tan: What are you going to do, Lee? [Lee's face is showing hesitation]
Carter: All you gotta do is pull that trigger back and BAM!!!
Ricky Tan: Are you going to spend the rest of your life hiding like your father?
Carter: Don't let him talk about your daddy like that! Shoot him, Lee!
Ricky Tan: You can't do it, can you?
Carter: Oh, yes the hell he can! Ain't nobody up here but us!
Ricky Tan: GO ON!
Carter: If you ain't gonna shoot him, kung-fu his ass or somethin'!

[After kicking Ricky Tan out of the window]
Carter: Damn! Good kick, Lee.
Lee: It was an accident.
Carter: Aw, well, we'll just say he tried to catch a cab.

[During the credit bloopers after Jackie kicks Ricky out the window]
Carter: Damn! He ain't going to be in Rush Hour 3!

[During the bloopers]
Tucker: You sly devil, you. She kissed you, didn't she- [Cell phone rings] Ahh!
Chan: Who's calling?
Tucker: Hello? [Rings still, Tucker presses talk button again]
Chan: Say hello to your father!
Tucker: Hello? .... I'm filming man.... Call me back!
Chan: [Surprised and a little mad]
Tucker:[On phone] I'm filming, I'm looking at Jackie Chan dead in his eye! Call me back at seven o'clock! Call me back!
Chan: Are you a professional? we are filming and you turn on your phone!?
Tucker: [Still on phone] No, you can't speak to Jackie Chan! [Extras and crew laugh in background]
Tucker: Look just...[Hands Jackie phone embarrassingly]) I'm sorry man.
Chan: Hello? We are filming right now! [Background laughter rises, Tucker apologizes continuously].... You sorry! .... You waste our film!
Tucker: [Takes phone back] Call me tonight, seven o'clock! [Shuts phone off and walks off camera; Jackie looks at the camera shaking his head]
Director: [Laughing with others] CUT!

[After a ping tao grenade Lee spits out blows up]
Carter: Why the HELL didn't you tell me you had a bomb in your mouth?!
Lee: I did!
Carter: No! You didn't!
Lee: I said, "Mmm!"
Carter: What the hell is "Mmm"?
Lee: Mmm, boom!
