  • I sent in my application to The Real World, so I'm hoping to hear back from that. I'm putting a lot of my eggs into that basket, the MTV basket. I'm also thinking about getting a gun, and dealing crack. Being a crack dealer. Not, like, a mean crack dealer, but like... like a nice one. Kinda friendly, like, "Hey, what's up guys? You want some crack?". I'm just waiting on those two things to just kinda flesh themselves out.
  • [talking to Reese Bobby] Hello Professor Dickweed.

I just want to take time to say thank you for my family, My two beautiful, beautiful, handsome, striking sons, Walker, and Texas Ranger, or T.R., as we call him. And of course my red hot smokin’ wife, Carley, who is a stone cold fox (Cal: MMMMM!), who if you would rate her ass on 100 it would easily be a 94.

  • Look, I like the baby version the best, you hear me? I win the races and I get the money!

  • [to Girard] I've got you, Pepe Le Bitch!
  • [getting ready to bump Girard in a race] Hey, it's me, America!
  • Slingshot: engage.
  • I'm not sure what to do with my hands.

  • Please don't let the invisible fire burn my friend!

I mean, you probably didn't hear about it 'cause I went under the name of Mike Honcho. But I just wanted you to know that. If you can hear me, if it got into your brain somehow, that I spread my buttcheeks as Mike Honcho.

From outtakes

  • I like to think of Jesus like a muscular trapeze artist.
  • I like to think of Jesus like a dirty old bum. He's comin' up to me, and I'm 'bout to sock him one, cause, you know, he's a dirty old bum, but then I say, "Wait a minute, there's something... I don't know, special about this guy."

  • [to Ricky] Tomorrow, you are going to get beaten. Beaten real bad, cowboy!
  • [After breaking Ricky's arm] Your injury is one of ignorance and pride!
  • Ah, "Reecky Booby"! Now we shall dance...and yes, it will be a slow jam!
  • You must decide, "Reecky Booby". Is it foolish pride, or is it greatness for you?
  • [on the Shake and Bake] What is that, is that a catchphrase or is it, uh, epilepsy?
  • It makes no sense! This "Shake and Bake", it's nonsense!
  • Where are you, "Reecky Booby"? Come face your destroyer!
  • Like the frightened baby chipmunk, you are scared by anything that is different.
  • [to Ricky] I am a racing car driver, just like you, except I am from Formula Un.
  • My husband Gregory and I wish for that which every other couple wish for: to retire to Stockholm and design a currency for dogs and cats to use.
  • [about holding hands with Ricky] It is a sign of friendship in many cultures, it is not sexual at all. Do not be bothered by the fact I have an erection right now. It has nothing to do with you.

From deleted scenes

  • [on smoking in school] It's okay, I'm a volunteer fireman.
  • [to Ricky's class] You don't listen to losers like your know-it-all teacher. She wants you to go slow, but it's the fastest who gets paid, and it's the fastest who gets laid.
  • You need to learn to drive with the fear, and there ain't nothin' more goddamn frightening than driving with a live cougar in the car.
  • Close the door and come in. I got weed in here, cowboy.
  • [after Ricky punches him in the nose] Hey, son? Son! Did this go good?
  • [to Ricky who is delivering pizza on a bike] Hey, is that a Huffy? That's a nice-lookin' bike, boy!
  • Whoa! I gotta lay off the peyote.
  • You got hair on your peaches or what?

And she got mad and yelled at me and I peed my pants. And I never did changed my pee pants all day. I'm still sittin' here in my dirty pee pants.

From deleted scenes

  • You look old, Granny, are you gonna die today?
  • [eating at Applebee's] It's Applebee-riffic!


  • [about being a pit crew member] Sorry, Lucius, but it's a hard habit to break, like stalking an ex-girlfriend.
  • Peaches and cream!
  • It's not always bad to be in last place. Here's some things we can focus on: One, we tried hard. And two, we're still dear friends!

  • [After Ricky has stabbed himself in the leg] Here, we'll use this knife to pry the other one out! Kristen eats knives for breakfast!
  • Just remember this, Ricky: you wreck that car, that's $200,000 out of your pocket!
  • [Removing the knife from Ricky's leg] Cut around the meat...
  • "No, no, no! He has to know! He's always cryin!"
  • Don't you put that evil on me Ricky Bobby! Don't you put that on us! You are not paralyzed!

From outtakes


  • Carley Bobby: [about Walker and Texas Ranger] If we wanted us some wussies, we would have named them 'Dr. Quinn' and 'Medicine Woman', okay?
  • Ricky's Co-Worker: Nice denim shorts, dude!
  • Announcer at Racetrack: As it stands now, Jean Girard is sitting on the pole, which is of course a statement of fact and in no way a comment on the driver's sexual orientation.
  • Bill Weber: We'd like to thank you for joining us for NBC's coverage of NASCAR. Coming up next, it's "Ice Dancing To The Hits Of Motown".
  • Bill Weber: Ricky Bobby wins! You'll never see anything like that in a hundred lifetimes! It was completely illegal and in no way will count, but, man, that was something!
  • Speed News Announcer: Before each race, Jean Girard spends time with his prize-winning horses, who are also gay.
  • Opening title card: America is all about speed. Hot, nasty, bad-ass speed. - Eleanor Roosevelt, 1936.

From deleted scenes

  • Chip: As Thor said to Loki, "When you roll the dice, you pay the price."


Reese: Now, there's nothing like driving to avoid jail. Nothing hones your mind and your instincts like necessity. So I taped a kilo of cocaine underneath the car and called the boys in blue. Now, the way I figure it, you got about 2 minutes before they show up, and you do five to ten. So, what's it gonna be? Fear...or prison?
Ricky: What the hell are you talkin' about?!
Reese: Real simple, son! Cops are comin'! There's a kilo of Colombian bam-bam underneath the car! Time to be a man! You got hair on your peaches or what?

Cal: Shake and Bake?
Ricky: No. Never again.
Cal: You're right. I was a total dick, man.
Ricky: From now on, [points to Cal] it's Magic Man...[points to himself] and El Diablo.
Cal: What--What's Diablo mean?
Ricky: It’s, like, Spanish for, like, a fighting chicken.
Cal: That's awesome! With the claws?
Ricky: Yeah, with the claws. With the claws and a beak!
Cal: How'd you come up with that, man?
Ricky: Just--sometimes, things click.

Ricky: Cal, you could say that 10,000 times, and it still wouldn't be enough.
Cal: It fires me up, man.
Ricky: I know, say it one more time.
Cal: Shake and Bake!
Carley: Whoo!
Ricky: Doesn't that feel good?
Cal: Yeah! It rhymes, they're both verbs...it's awesome!

Walker: Anarchy! Anarchy! Anarchy! Anarchy!
Texas Ranger: I don't even know what that means, but I love it!

Walker: Shut up in here, I'm tryin' to sleep!
Texas Ranger: One of you turds is about to get smacked in the mouth!

Jean: Monsieur "Booby", by defeating me today, you have set me free. And for that, I thank you. [He offers his hand to Ricky]
Ricky: [shoving Girard's hand away] I will never shake your hand. Ever. But I will give you this...[he passionately kisses Girard]
Jean: Sir...you taste...of America.
Ricky: Thank you. [Girard leans in for another kiss] Noooo...once was good. Once was good.

Ricky: [after Reese offers to help him go fast again] Fine. I'll do it. But I ain't callin' you Daddy.
Reese: Well, what are you gonna call me then?
Ricky: [later] All right, Professor Dickweed, what's the plan?

Cal: Hey, when you have the stereo and the T.V. on at the same time, how do you control the volume on the T.V.?
Ricky: Why would you have the stereo and the T.V. on at the same time?
Cal: 'Cause I like to party.

Cal: I like to think of Jesus with, like, big eagle's wings, singin' lead vocals for Lynyrd Skynyrd with, like, an angel band, and I'm in the front row, and I'm hammered drunk...
Carly: Hey, Cal, why don't you just shut up?
Cal: Yes, ma'am.

Lucius: Now, Ricky, the doctor told us we should let you work it out on your own sweet time, but...Ricky, you can walk.
Ricky: What'd you just say?
Cal: He's tellin' you the truth, man.
Ricky: You sick...sons of bitches! You walk in here, on your two legs, all fat, and cocky, and lookin' at me in my chair, and you tell me it's all in my head? I hope that both of you have sons! Handsome, beautiful, articulate sons, who are talented, and star athletes, and they have their legs taken away! I mean, I pray you know that pain and that hurt!
Ricky: I am SO paralyzed!
Lucius: NO, NO!
Cal: Don't be rough on him, now.
Lucius: No, he needs to know!
Cal: Okay.
Lucius: He's always cryin' !
Cal: Alright, tough love it is, tough love. [to Ricky] Wake up, idiot!
Ricky: [pulls out a knife] You wanna know what I am?! You wanna see what my life is?!
Lucius: Don't do it!
Ricky: You wanna see what's goin' on here?!
Cal: Don't you stick that knife in your leg...
Ricky: [he sticks the knife in his leg] [pause] AAAAAAAAGGGHHHHH!!

Ricky: No one plays jazz here at The Pit Stop!
Jean: Then why is the song on the jukebox?
Bartender: We keep it on there for profiling purposes. We also got the Pet Shop Boys and Seal.

Chip: Ricky, remember: The fieldmouse is fast, but the owl sees at night. [maniacal laughter]
Cal: That's kinda creepy, ain't it?

Dick Berggren: Dick Berggren reporting from Las Vegas victory lane for FOX television. Ricky, obviously a huge win for you today, but it seems as if you either win, or crash the car trying to win.
Ricky: Well, Dick, here's the deal: I'm the best there is, plain and simple. I mean, I wake up in the morning and I piss excellence. You know, nobody can hang with my stuff. I'm just a--just a big, hairy, American winning machine. If you ain't first, you're last! You know? You know what I mean? That phrase is trademarked and not to be used without the expressed permission of Ricky Bobby, Inc.

Mike Joy: Ricky Bobby, who never met a sponsor he wouldn't push, has a huge Fig Newtons sticker on his windshield.
Darrell Waltrip: I think NASCAR'll give him the black flag for that.
Mike Joy: He sold the windshield!
Ricky: This sticker is dangerous and inconvenient, but I do love Fig Newtons.

Cal: [talking to his crew chief over the radio] Hey, Jarvis?
Jarvis: Yeah, Cal?
Cal: If you slept with your best friend's wife, why would he apologize to you?
Jarvis: Yeah, I don't know, Cal. That's weird.
Cal: That's what I'm sayin'! My head's all tied up...like a pretzel! I got a pretzel in my head!

Jarvis: Cal, you should probably pay attention. I think he's passing you.
Cal: Is Ricky passing me in my subconscious?
Jarvis: No, he's actually passin' you! That's happenin' right now!

Jean: Soon you will know what it is like to be defeated by the hands of someone who is truly better than you. As William Blake wrote, "The cut worm forgives the plow."
Ricky: Well, just let me quote the late, great, Colonel Sanders. Who said, "I'm too drunk to taste this chicken."
Jean: What has that got to do with this?
Cal: I got a message for all of them, ready? Shake...and Bake!
Ricky: What does that do, does that blow your mind? That just happened!

Glenn: So, I was talking to Nana on Saturday. Her birthday's coming up, and I don't know what to get her. She's gonna be 88...
Kyle: Get her a coffin.

Jean: Do you know why I came to America, "Reecky Booby"?
Ricky: Public schools, health care systems, giant water parks, I mean, the same reason anybody comes to America.
Jean: I came here for you to beat me.
Ricky: What the hell are you talkin' about?
Jean: My husband Gregory and I wish for only that which every other couple wishes for: to retire to Stockholm and design a currency for dogs and cats to use. But before I can do that...
Ricky: That's dumb.
Jean: It's not dumb!
Ricky: It is dumb.
Jean: Why is it dumb?
Ricky: I don't know.
Jean: But before I can do that, I must be defeated by a driver who's truly better than me.
Ricky: So you're gonna lose to me on purpose?
Jean: No.
Ricky: No?
Jean: NO! I will battle you with the entirety of my heart, and you will probably lose, but maybe, juuuust maybe, you might challenge me. God needs the Devil. The Beatles needed The Rolling Stones. Even Diane Sawyer needed Katie Couric. Will you be my...Katie Couric?
Ricky: Wow. [chuckles] I feel like I'm in Highlander.

[they both laugh]

Jean: What is the Highlander?
Ricky: It's a movie.
Jean: Any good?
Ricky: Very good. It won the Academy Award.
Jean: Oh? For what?
Ricky: For best movie ever made. Look, I came here to tell you one thing: Come race time tomorrow, I'm comin' for you, all right?
Jean: May God be with you.
Ricky: Yeah.
Jean: Because although today I am friendly...tomorrow...will be WAR!
Ricky: All right.

Susan: [telling Ricky why he should get back into racing] It's because it's what you love to do. It's who you were born to be. And here you sit--thinking! Well, Ricky Bobby is not a thinker. Ricky Bobby is a driver. He is a doer, and that's what you need to do. You don't need to think. You need to drive. You need speed. You need to go out there, and you need to rev your engine. You need to fire it up. You need to grab ahold of that line between speed and chaos, and you need to wrestle it to the ground like a demon cobra. And then, when the fear rises up in your belly, you use it. And you know that fear is powerful, because it has been there for billions of years! And it is good! And you use it! And you ride it; you ride it like a skeleton horse through the gates of hell, and then you win, Ricky! You WIN! And you don't win for anybody else. You win for you, you know why? Because a man takes what he wants. He takes it all. And you're a man, aren't you? Aren't you?!
Ricky: Susan, I've never heard you talk like that... Are we about to get it on? Because I'm as hard as a diamond in an ice storm right now.

Susan: Hi, I'm his lady, I'm Susan. I painted the car, I...we had sex.
Reese: You did?
Susan & Ricky: Yeah.
Reese: Well, I wish I coulda been there for that.

Ricky: Dear Eight Pound, Six Ounce, Newborn Baby Jesus, in your golden, fleece diapers, with your curled-up, fat, balled-up little fists pawin' at the air...
Chip: He was a man! He had a beard!
Ricky: I like the baby version the best, do you hear me?! I win the races and I get the money! I work too hard for your bull, Chip.

Texas Ranger: [complaining about doing community service] I gotta tell ya Granny, this blows!
Walker: How much more of this?
Lucy: Well, I don't know. When are you boys going to stop tossing me the radio in the bathtub?

Ricky: Dear Tiny, Infant, Jesus...
Carley: Um, sweetie, Jesus did grow up. You don't always have to call him baby. It's a bit odd and off-puttin' to pray to a baby.
Ricky: Look, I like the Christmas Jesus best, and I'm sayin' grace. When you say grace, you can say it to Grownup Jesus or Teenage Jesus or Bearded Jesus or whoever you want.

Ricky: I'm really gonna open it up now! Whoo! I missed you, Mama Speed! Ricky Bobby's back!
Mr. Dennit: Wait, h--how fast is he going?
Lucius: Uh, 26 miles an hour.
Ricky: What were those things? Were those the other cars?!

Lucius: Listen, if we don't get that car back on the track, our sponsors are gonna shit a chicken. Now, is there anyone out there who wants to go fast?
Ricky: [raising his hand] I wanna go fast!

Cal: [as Ricky prepares to start his first race] Remember when we got kicked out of biology for playing with Matchbox cars?!
Ricky: Yeah!
Cal: Who's retarded now?!
Ricky: Yeah!
Cal: Hey, what are you doin' after this?
Ricky: After the race?
Cal: Yeah!
Ricky: I don't know, but it feels like we're wastin' a lot of time!
Cal: Aw, I know! I'm just excited!

Reese: Look, all I got to my name is a car, and a duffel bag full of underwear and sweet, stinky weed.
Walker: How much you sellin' that weed for, old man?

Susan: How does one get thrown out of an Applebee's?
Ricky: You're about to find out.

Lucius: I don't wanna rain on your parade, but that was some of the dumbest driving I have ever seen in my life.
Ricky: Thank you.
Lucius: Now, I know you won the race, but you're not gonna live forever.
Ricky: Oh, I'm not stupid, Lucius. No one lives forever. No one. But with advances in modern science, and my high level of income, I mean, it's not crazy to think I can't live to be 245, maybe 300.

Mr. Dennit: Ricky, your little obscene gesture is going to cost you 100 points. Do you know how much that costs us in sponsorship dollars?
Ricky: With all due respect, Mr. Dennit, I had no idea you'd gotten experimental surgery to have your balls removed.
Mr. Dennit: What did you just say to me?
Ricky: What? I said it with all due respect!
Mr. Dennit: Just because you say that doesn't mean you get to say whatever you want to me!
Ricky: Yes, it does!
Mr. Dennit: No, it doesn't!
Ricky: It's in the Geneva Conventions, look it up!

Texas Ranger: Well, if it isn't our old mangy, transient grandfather.
Reese: Well said, grandson. I'll take that as a compliment.

Texas Ranger: What are you lookin at popeye?
Reese: Shut up you little potlicker, I'll put you in the microwave

Carley, Cal, Walker, Texas Ranger: Jenga!

From outtakes

Ricky: Hi, I'm Ricky Bobby.
Cal: And I'm Cal Naughton Jr.
Ricky: We're here to tell you about snow blindness in cats. It's affecting more and more cats each year, and it scares the living shit out of us.

From trailer

Reese: [as Ricky is attacked by a cougar] Ricky, control your heart rate!
Ricky: I can't control my heart rate, I've got a cougar on me!

Ricky: You can't have two number ones.
Cal: Yeah...you can't, that makes eleven.

From deleted scenes

Jean: Do you know why I came to America, "Reecky Booby"?
Ricky: To have a chalupa and marvel at the wisdom of George W. Bush, I mean, the same reason anyone comes to America.

From unrated version

Texas Ranger: [after Ricky asks him about his day] Well, the teacher asked me what was the capitol of North Carolina. I said Washington D.C.
Cal: Bingo!
Ricky: Nice.
Texas Ranger: And she said 'No, you're wrong.' I said 'You got a lumpy butt!' She got mad at me and yelled at me, and I pissed in my pants. And I never did change my pee pants all day, I'm still sittin' in my dirty pee pants.
Cal: I wet my bed until I was 19. There's no shame in that.

Ricky: Hey. I lost my license. That's why I'm on the bus. I'm delivering pizzas.
Man on bus: MOTHERF----R, what makes you think I care? SHUT THE F--K UP!!
Ricky: I was just telling 'cause-- Like I said, I lost my license. I've been having a lot of problems lately.
Man on bus: Problems? I don't wanna hear about your damn problems. Everybody got problems! My mama got problems. She just lost her leg. My cousin Pookie just lost a testicle. My dog just threw up somebody's finger. That's a problem!
Ricky: I really regret opening my mouth and talking to you.
