A Japanese guy (that learned to speak english by watching Howard Cosell) challenging John Cusack to a drag race in "Better Off Dead" :
"Truly a sight to behold. A man beaten. The once great champ, now, a study in mop-ish-ness. No longer the victory hungry stallion we've raced so many times before, but a pathetic, washed up, aged ex-champion."
And later, when he beats them in his restored Camaro.
"Is there a problem officer?" Young James Tiberius Kirk after he trashed his step dad's Vette, Star Trek
There was dialog in "Duel"?
It was that 'high-rasp' sound of a voice in doubt: Dennis Weaver's 'voice', only in 'thought', as we heard it.
John Boy Walton used a crescendo like that, so did Nicholas Cage 'til lately.
I had a brother that sounded like that when he lied.
This is from My Cousin Vinny
D.A. Jim Trotter (Lane Smith): Now, Ms. Vito, being an expert on general automotive knowledge, can you tell me... what would the correct ignition timing be on a 1955 Bel Air Chevrolet, with a 327 cubic inch engine and a four-barrel carburetor?
Mona Lisa Vito (Marisa Tomei): That's a bullshit question.
D.A. Jim Trotter: Does that mean that you can't answer it?
Mona Lisa Vito: It's a bullshit question, it's impossible to answer.
D.A. Jim Trotter: Impossible because you don't know the answer!
Mona Lisa Vito: Nobody could answer that question!
D.A. Jim Trotter: Your Honor, I move to disqualify Ms. Vito as an expert witness!
Judge Chamberlain Haller (Fred Gwynne): Can you answer the question?
Mona Lisa Vito: No, it is a trick question!
Judge Chamberlain Haller: Why is it a trick question?
Vinny Gambini: [to Bill] Watch this.
Mona Lisa Vito: 'Cause Chevy didn't make a 327 in '55, the 327 didn't come out till '63. And it wasn't offered in the Bel Air with a four-barrel carb till '64. However, in 1964, the correct ignition timing would be four degrees before top-dead-center.
D.A. Jim Trotter: Well... uh... she's acceptable, Your Honor.
I type with that voice.

That was Sean Penn as Jeff Spicoli and the line is: "My dad's a TV repairman and he has an awesome set of tools-I can fix it!"
Yet, some how, it's kind of sad we can remember these lines. Just, sad.
"You bought an Edsel!" ... Peggy Sue to her father in "Peggy Sue Got Married"....
"It can happen to you, then, it can happen again. Racing is a professional blood sport"-Steve McQueen in "Le Mans"
"It's amazing what a country boy can do with an erector set"-Pat Boone, after winning a race and speaking to his rival in "State Fair" from 1962.
Another one from Steve McQueen in Le Mans, "Racing is life, everything else is just waiting."
