    Lightning McQueen: "You know, the Rust-eze Medicated Bumper Ointment team ran a great race today. And remember: with a little Rust-eze - and an insane amount of luck - you too can look like me. Ka-chow!"

    Focus and Speed

    Lightning McQueen: "Okay, here we go. Focus. Speed. I am speed. One winner, forty-two losers. I eat losers for breakfast. Breakfast? Maybe I should have had breakfast? Brekkie could be good for me. No, no, no, focus. Speed. Faster than fast, quicker than quick. I am Lightning."
    Pit Crew Member: "Hey Lightning, you ready?"
    Lightning McQueen: "Oh yeah!"

    Our (eventual) hero, Lightning McQueen, is a rookie with a rookie's attitude - cocky and arrogant, but with enough goofiness to be lovable. His attitude will change dramatically when he lands in Radiator Springs...

    Mater: "My name is Mater."
    Lightning McQueen: "Mater?"
    Mater: "Yeah, like tuh-mater, but without the 'tuh."

    Our first introduction to the now-beloved Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) also lets us know pretty quickly that Mater is a goofball of the highest order.
