Speed Racer
Movie Quote Quiz

Speed: Racing hasn't changed, and it never will.
Racer X: It doesn't matter if racing never changes. What matters is if we let racing change us. Every one of us has to find a reason to do this. You don't climb into a T-180 to be a driver. You do it because you're driven.

Mr. Royalton: Pancakes are love.

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.

Pops Racer: I couldn't have been more proud of you, son. Not because you won, but because you stood up, you weren't afraid, and you did what you thought was right.
Speed: It didn't amount to anything. It was completely meaningless.
Pops Racer: How could it be meaningless? I saw my son become a man. I watched a man with courage and integrity drive the pants off every other driver on that road. This is not meaningless. This is the reason for a father's life.

Local Announcer: Folks, I knew Rex Racer and if he's up there somewhere watching this race, you can bet your ass he's damn proud of his little brother.

Pops Racer: That show's in German.
Spritle: Not the monkey parts.

Speed: I thought we made a good team today. It felt like we've been doing it for a long time.
Racer X: If you say so.

Trixie: Cool beans.

Trixie: Three, four, ready for more.

Mr. Royalton: A million dollars to the driver that takes out Racer.
Cannonball Taylor: He won't even get out of the blocks.
Mr. Royalton: I prefer him to not even make it out of the locker room.

Trixie: Since when did winning become so important?
Speed: It is important. You gotta win if you want to keep driving, and that's what I want to do. It's the only thing I really know how to do.
Trixie: That's not true.
Speed: Come on, I wouldn't have made it out of high school without your help.
Trixie: Okay, that's true.

Spritle: Go, Speed, Go.

Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning, the kid's hand keeps swapping from being on the middle of the paper to on the upper part, between shots.

Question: Who is Sparky? Trixie's constant presence already means the future family model is pretty weird, but, why is Speed's "operator" living as part of the family? Is he an employee of Racer Motors, or what?

Answer: They're a close-knit team. Sparky's a close family friend as well as an employee. It's rather like Race Bannon living with the the Quests as part of the family, even though he is employed by Dr. Quest.
