Cool Runnings Quotes

Yul Brenner: Say whatever it is that you want 'cause you're just like every other fool on the island. You're going nowhere, Sanka, and you're thrilled to death about it. But you see me? You see me? I'm different, 'cause I know exactly where I'm going and after I, Yul Brenner, win the Olympics and become famous I'm going to leave the island and live right down there. [Pulls out picture of Buckingham Palace]

Sanka Coffie: [laughing]

Yul Brenner: What are you laughing about? What are you laughing about?

Sanka Coffie: That's Buckingham Palace. You plan on living there, you're going to have to marry the Queen.

Junior Bevill: Yul, that's where the Queen of England lives.

Sanka Coffie: Face it, Yul Brenner you can start calling yourself Madonna but you're still going to end up in an outhouse shanty like every other dock-working nobody.

Junior Bevill: Mm, says who?

Sanka Coffie: Says me, rich boy. What do you know about it?

Junior Bevill: Well, I know my father started off in a one room hut. Now he lives in one of the biggest homes in Kingston.

Sanka Coffie: Well, he ain't your father.

Junior Bevill: He doesn't have to be. All he has to do is know what he wants and work hard for it. And if he wants it bad enough, he'll get it. Look, believe me, Sanka the more Yul Brenners we got making it in this world the better off this world will be, especially for Jamaicans. Go ahead, Yul Brenner. Go get your palace.”
