Movie Quote Quiz

Carl Stark: Help me.
Burt Simpson: You got to be kidding.

Carl Stark: Burt is chasing Stark up a long stairwell in an office building. Stark is a few flights above Burt. He throws a hand grenade down the stairs. It lands right in front of Burt. Burt shouts with elation that he is finally going to die. The grenade rolls away and falls down the middle of the stairwell exploding harmlessly far below. Stark looks down and says, "Yeah."
Burt Simpson: Burt suddenly peeks out from just a few flights below Stark and shouts, "you missed ME again, you idiot!"

Captain: And any short time goof-off that doesn't bust his ass to bring this guy in, is going to be as popular around this precinct as a reggae band at a Ku Klux Klan rally.

Burt Simpson: You can't spend your whole life planning what'll make you happy tomorrow or you'll never be happy today. You've got to do it now.

Continuity mistake: Dabney Coleman and the villain fight on the scaffolding on the side of a skyscraper high above the city. They are the only two people on the scaffold, but during the fight at the bottom of the screen you can clearly see a man's head.
