Derice Bannock: Hey, man, look here, I'm just trying to get us off on the right foot.
Sanka Coffie: Well, the right foot for us is not the Swiss foot. I mean, come on, Derice, we can't be copying nobody else's style. We have our own style.
Derice Bannock: Kissing an egg is no kind of style. It's the Olympics here, it's no stupid push-cart derby. [Long pause]
Sanka Coffie: Let me tell you something, rasta, I didn't come up here to forget who I am and where I come from.
Derice Bannock: Neither did I. I'm just trying to be the best I can be.
Sanka Coffie: So am I, and the best I can be is Jamaican. Look, Derice, I've known you since Julie Jeffreys asked to see your ding-a-ling, and I'm telling you as a friend... if we look Jamaican, walk Jamaican, talk Jamaican and IS Jamaican, then we sure as hell better bobsled Jamaican.”
