Cypher Raige: Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice. We are all telling ourselves a story and that day mine changed.
Muhammad Ali: Sonny Liston, you ain't no champ! You a chump!"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee!" Ahhh!"Rumble em', young man, rumble em'!"
Muhammad Ali: Hey, come on you big ugly bear, I'll turn you into a rug.
Sonny Liston: Keep talking! I'm gonna fuck you up.
Mike Lowrey: Now that's how you supposed to shoot! From now on, that's how you shoot! Oh man, I want my next partner to shoot like that. It takes a dysfunctional motherfucker to bust somebody in the head like that. That's some dysfunctional shit! My next partner's gonna invite me to his barbeques and shit, though.
Floyd Poteet: We've got our rights.
Mike Lowrey: Why don't you exercise your right to shut the fuck up?
