      • Cole: What'd the thieves get?
        Cameron: Six canisters of the new rocket fuel formula, coded XD58 lot number 31.
        Cole: What is it?
        Cameron: Well, its the latest propellant used in the next generation of space shuttles. Straum Labs was contracted by NASA to develop the first test batch.
        Cole: That's why the Feds are so crazy.
        Cameron: Yeah.
        Frankie: Hey, you're making my day; I love to hear the Feds are crazy.

      • Robbie: I think if the canister can launch a two million pound space craft, it should probably be enough to get a Pontiac down First Street. You know, I still don't understand why you had to take the whole stock pile. I mean, for racing purposes, you know, half a canister could last us forever.
        Matt: Well, like I always say; you can never be too rich, too thin or have too much rocket fuel.

      • Matt: Looking for some racing action, slick?
        Cole: That's the idea. We came out here to see what it would do on the quarter mile. (He gestures to the Viper)
        Matt: In this assembly line piece of crap? You weekend warriors crack me up.
        Frankie: Well, listen Mr. Joe Stock Car, you got the horsepower in your ride to back up the bull-power coming out of your mouth?

      • Cole: You talk to the kid yet?
        Cameron: No, unfortunately he ran away from home three weeks ago. It's your typical parent-teenager conflict, Straum disapproves of his son's fascination with drag racing and the so-called lowlifes that come with it.
        Cole: Sounds like my dad when I was seventeen.

      • Harris: This is a big deal, Matt, a big complicated deal involving an entire network of international contacts.
        Matt: Yeah, well I'll be impressed when I see some cash. My car needs new tires.
        Harris: Well, a week from now you can buy your own chain of tire stores. Now you want to be just the fastest drag racer around or the richest?
        Matt: Both.

      • Robbie: The Annihilators are like a team, okay? We take care of each other and they give me a place to stay.
        Clarice: They let you sleep on the floor of their garage!

      • Robbie: My dad sent you, didn't he?
        Cole: He's worried about you.
        Robbie: Right, he probably hates me.
        Cole: You're his son, Robbie. You cause him some pain, but he's concerned whether or not you're all right.
        Robbie: I'm not all right, I'm not all right, man! I screwed up. There's nothing I can do to make things right.
        Cole: That's not true.

      • Frankie: If this psycho wants to dim our lights, then what the hell's he waiting for?
        Allie: Well, they probably want to make it look like an accident, not the easiest thing to when you've got five witnesses to get rid of. I mean, think about it, first they have to decide just how they wanna kill us and then there's the matter of disposal of the bodies or body parts...
        Frankie: Woah, woah, woah, Allie! Just a little too much information.

      • Frankie: So, hotshot, still think you're the fastest driver in town?
        Matt: Ever seen anybody faster?
        Cole: Why do you think we were assigned this job?
        Frankie: Cole's considered one of the best drivers in the world.
        Matt: Oh yeah? By who?
        Frankie: By guys a lot more knowledgeable about driving than you.
        Matt: I know what y'all are trying to do, you want to get me in a drag race so you can try and get away.
        Cameron: Well, if you're so much faster than he is, what are you worried about?
        Frankie: Yeah, 'cause after his tailwind blows your ass into the desert, I'll be sure to come by and pick up the spare parts.
        Cole: Forget it, Frankie, he doesn't have the stones.

      • Ruth: We wanted to thank you, for giving us our town back.
        Cole: You took it back, we just helped.
