Jean Girard: [has Ricky in an arm lock] I will let you go, Ricky. But first, I want you to say...'I... love... crepes.'

Cal Naughton, Jr.: Don't you say it, Ricky. These colors don't run.

Ricky Bobby: I'm not gonna say it.

Cal Naughton, Jr.: Good.

Ricky Bobby: Hey, look, Frenchie, I thought about it. So why don't you go ahead and break my arm?

Jean Girard: I do not want to break your arm, Monsieur Bobby, but I am a man of my word.

Ricky Bobby: Here's the deal. He's not gonna break it because I'm gonna slip out of it right now. Houdini! [he tries unsuccessfully to get free]

Jean Girard: Whoa! Get down, you little pancake.

Ricky Bobby: Someone might as well get me a beer while I'm down here.

Jean Girard: But you have forced me to do this. You are now mocking me and making me look ridiculous. Just say, 'I love crepes.'

Cal Naughton, Jr.: You know, just to put this in there, I had a whole mess of crepes this morning. They're just like pancakes, maybe even better.

Ricky Bobby: Wait, are they the really thin pancakes?

Cal Naughton, Jr.: Yeah.

Jean Girard: Yes, they are. They are the really thin pancakes. It's just a French word for them.

Ricky Bobby: Oh, my God, I love those.

Cal Naughton, Jr.: Put any syrups you want on them. I'm just saying, think about it.

Ricky Bobby: They come with cheese sometimes?

Jean Girard: Yes, of course, a fromage-crepe.

Ricky Bobby: Well, why didn't someone yell that right—right away?

Jean Girard: Do you know what's in the crepe suzette?

Ricky Bobby: Oh, I love the crepe suzette.

Jean Girard: With the sugar and lemon juice...

Ricky Bobby: Yeah, the sugar and the lemon juice. Sure.

Jean Girard: Grand Marnier.

Ricky Bobby: I wo—I wish I could crawl into one of those right now. I'd eat my way out from the inside.

Ricky Bobby: I came here to tell you one thing: come race time tomorrow, I'm coming for you.

Jean Girard: Do you know why I came to America, Monsieur Bobby?

Ricky Bobby: Health care systems, giant water parks. The same reason anyone comes to America.

Jean Girard: I came here for you to beat me.

Ricky Bobby: What are you talking about?

Jean Girard: My husband Gregory and I want only that what every other couple wants: to tame komodo dragons in Sri Lanka and teach them to perform Hamlet, but before I can do that...

Ricky Bobby: That's dumb.

Jean Girard: It's not dumb.

Ricky Bobby: It is dumb.

Jean Girard: Why is it dumb?

Ricky Bobby: I don't know.

Jean Girard: But before I can do that I must be beaten by a driver who is truly better than me.

Ricky Bobby: You saying you're going to lose to me on purpose?

Jean Girard: No.

Ricky Bobby: No?

Jean Girard: NO! I will battle you with the entirety of my heart and you will probably lose. But maybe, just maybe. You might challenge me. The Beatles needed The Rolling Stones. Even Diane Sawyer needed Katie Couric. Will you be my Katie Couric?

Ricky Bobby: Wow I feel like I'm in the Highlander.

Jean Girard: What's the Highlander?

Ricky Bobby: It's a movie.

Jean Girard: Oh, any good?

Ricky Bobby: Very good. It won the Academy Award.

Jean Girard: Oh, for what?

Ricky Bobby: Best movie ever made. Look I came here to tell you tomorrow I'm coming for you.

Jean Girard: May God be with you, Monsieur Bobby. Because although today I am friendly. Tomorrow will be war!

Ricky Bobby: All right.
