Racing Stripes is a 2005 adventure/comedy movie, directed by Frederik Du Chau. It is similar in the style to the 1995 movie Babe, in that the protagonist is a talking animal who lives on a farm and succeeds at an activity not expected of his species. The movie was filmed in Pietermaritzburg and Nottingham Road, South Africa.

Lightning[edit]

  • [trailer only] If that's a racehorse, then I am D-O double-G, baby.
  • Well, like my momma used to say, "You can put your boots in the oven, but that won't make 'em biscuits."
  • Well, well, well, look what the cat drugged in. (Chuckles)
  • Finally, some peace and quiet. Y'all go ahead. Bye-bye, now. I'll just stay here and watch the palace for shizzle. Woof.

Tucker[edit]

  • [to Goose] Goose, let me talk to Stripes.
  • "Don't look back, leave it all on the track!"
  • Come on, Sandy.

Reggie[edit]

  • Well, subdivide me and Kentucky fry me!
  • This is Reggie Red Rooster with the farm report! In sports news, Goose the pelican dropped the motorcycle in the first round, then for good measure, taught the truck a lesson as well.
  • [About Goose] Gentlemen, don't let the feathers fool ya, this dude's dangerous. He's a killin' machine disguised as idiot.

Goose[edit]

  • [Flying over the Walsh farm] Would ya get a load 'a this dump?! Even old McDonald would'nt want this farm.
  • [As he is attacking the motorcycle] Okasaka! Slap-a-face-a! Break-a-bones-a! Ha, he, ha, he, he, he, ha, he, ha, ha, ha, he!

Other[edit]

  • Sir Trenton: (referring to Stripes and Sandy) Well, well, well. What have we here? [chuckles] Beauty and the beast.
  • Roughshod: Hey, plow-boy! You missed a spot.

Miss Dalrymple[edit]

  • What is that dreadful child up to now?
  • [to Channing] This is a racetrack, dear, not the petting zoo.

Dialogue[edit]

Franny: Question time. What exactly are you?
Young Stripes: I don't know.
Tucker: Okay, we can rule out genius.

(Stripes is running)

Tucker: Hey, hey. Slow down! Boy, oh boy. Kids these days, no control. Now back in my day-
Franny: Oh, here we go again with the ancient history lesson. Enough!
Franny: Well, would you look at him. He loves to run. It's in his heart!
Tucker: Yeah, but that's not enough.
Franny: You could train him. Then it would be enough.
Tucker: Let me tell you something. the legs are too short, the head's too big, he's got as much chance to race as me. Besides, I have got better things to do.
Franny: Oh, go fix your hair.
Tucker: I heard that.
Sandy: Um, did you ever consider going around that tree instead of running through it?
Stripes: Yeah, well.... usually it moves out of my way.
Sandy: [laughs] Uh, I’ve never heard of a tree doing that.
Stripes: You don’t know the trees around here. Are you new?
Sandy: I just got here. I’m Sandy.
Stripes: I’m Stripes.
Sandy: [sounding amused] You don’t say. Hmm.
Stripes: Are you a racehorse?
Sandy: No, I'm-- I'm a jumper. I've actually competed all around the world.
Stripes: Well, I'm a racehorse. I'm training to be in the big race.
Tucker: Hey, pal. You ever try shutting up?
Goose: You ever try swimmin’ in cement horseshoes? I’ve taken down punks bigger than you.
Tucker: Yeah? What’d you do, talk ‘em to death?
Goose: Hey, be careful, pony-boy, or someday somebody's gonna wake up with your head in their bed.
Tucker: I shoulda guessed from the size of that pecker you'd be a big-mouth.
Goose: Watch it, stumpy. I'd cut you off at the knees but it looks like somebody's beaten me to it.
Sir Trenton: They cannot be serious. This will not stand. I will not allow that beast to run in my competition.
Pride: Please, Father, don’t interfere. I can win it fair and square.
Sir Trenton: [scoffs] That’s not a risk I’m willing to take!

(Stripes goes to the creek to make amends with Sandy, until Franny walks by)

Franny: Hello? Where do think you're going? You have a big day tomorrow. You can't go.
Stripes: I need to make things right with Sandy.
Franny: Alright. I understand. But listen, a little advice from an old goat. Relationships are like racing. When you do it for love, you’ve already won. Go on, go on.
Franny: There's Sandy.
Tucker: Yeah, and there's Sir Trenton, all fifteen hundred pounds of him. We'll never get her out of there.
Scuzz: Yeah, you know, I saw you and I was about to say to my brother Buzz: "I never seen a black horse with white stripes."
Buzz: You dimwit! He is obviously a white horse with black stripes. Now, anybody could see that.
Scuzz: Filly? I didn't know she was from Philly. You know, I really like those Philly Cheesesteaks. Actually, I like any kind of cheese. Actually, I like any kind of food from anywhere. Especially candy and poop. What were we talking about again?
Buzz: I hate my life.
Channing: [About the flat tire on the truck] How long will it take to put on the spare?
Nolan: Honey, that, that is the spare.
Goose: Name's Goose.
Tucker: Oh, a pelican named Goose, well my name's Duck.
Goose: Duck?
Tucker: Duck.
Goose: Duck!?
Tucker: Goose!
