Trixie: Move it, Speed! It's getting ugly out there!
Speed: [to Royalton] Racing's in our blood. Like for Pops, it isn't just a sport. It's way more important than that. It's like a religion. And in our house, the major sponsors are kind of like the devil. I don't mean to offend you, sir, and I do appreciate your offer, but after all we've been through, I don't think this kind of deal is for me.
Pops Racer: You think you can drive a car and change the world? It doesn't work like that!
Speed: Maybe not, but it's the only thing I know how to do and I gotta do something.
Mr. Royalton: You walk away from me, you walk away from this deal, no matter how well you drive, you won't win, you won't place. I guarantee you right now you won't even finish the race!
Minx: [about Speed] He's going to be very good.
Racer X: He's going to be the best, if they don't destroy him first.
Speed: Racing is everything. For my family, it isn't just a sport, it's way more important than that... it's like... a religion.
Teacher: [to Speed's mother] Your son seems to be interested in only one thing. All he talks about, all he seems capable of thinking about... is automobile racing.
Racer X: Every one of us has to find a reason to do this. You don't get climb into a T-180 to be a driver. You do it because you're driven. Mr. Royalton: [to Speed] Listen to me and listen good, kid, because I can give you one more history lesson. You're going to go to Fuji and you're going to try and prove that everything I've just told you is nothing but a lie. But no matter how well you drive, you won't win, you won't place. I guarantee you right now that you won't even finish the race!
