Barton Blaze Quotes in Ghost Rider (2007)
Barton Blaze Quotes:
[before the big Touchdown Jump, Johnny Blaze and Randall "Mack" Mackenzie stand at the top of the acceleration ramp, overlooking the 300 ft jump]
Mack: Thank God you listened to me, took the cars out. It would've been suicide otherwise This way if you come up short, see, you'll come down on some nice, soft, green... grass?
[Mack looks up at the sound of the stadium dome being opened. Six Blackhawk helicopters slowly descend towards the field]
X Games Announcer: Ladies and Gentlemen, Johnny Blaze will not be jumping 50 cars today as scheduled; but instead, he will be leaping six UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters. Never before has any man attempted such a death-defying stunt.
[Mack turns and glares at Johnny]
Johnny Blaze: [shrugs] I took the cars out.
Mack: [as the helicopters land on the field] Why? Why JB? Why wouldn't you tell me?
Johnny Blaze: Well, because you would have thrown a fit.
Mack: Call me old-fashioned, I'm funny that way. Human sacrifice makes me uncomfortable. Why, JB? Why helicopters, man?
Barton Blaze: [a flashback to Barton discussing a new idea for a jump with young Johnny] You know what I've been thinking about? A new stunt. But instead of the cars or the ring of fire, a helicopter.
Johnny Blaze: My dad thought it'd be cool.
Mack: [Mack pauses, and glances down towards the helicopters again, before turning back with a sigh] He was right.
Barton Blaze: You're a hotshot, ain't you, boy? Young, think you know everything there is to know. Think you're gonna live forever. Is that about right?
Young Johnny Blaze: Aw, come on, Dad. It was a patch of dirt.
Barton Blaze: Ahem, that's not the point. Point is, we've been doing this act less a week. You're already screwing around.
Young Johnny Blaze: I was just doing it for the crowd.
Barton Blaze: We both know why you done it. You think she's gonna stand by you when you're in a wheelchair? Huh? Huh, hotshot?
Barton Blaze: When you do things without thinking you ain't making the choice, the choice is making you.
