Bodhi Quotes in Point Break (1991)


Bodhi Quotes:

  • Bodhi: If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

  • Bodhi: Back off Warchild, seriously.

    Roach: Peace, through superior firepower.

  • Johnny Utah: I'm not armed.

    [lifts up his shirt to Bodhi]

    Bodhi: But, you're not alone.

    Johnny Utah: Good guess. There is a guy on you now.


    Johnny Utah: Where is Roach?

    Bodhi: He's around somewhere. Listen Johnny, we're in a kind of a hurry; is there anything you need?

    Johnny Utah: You gotta tell me where she is.

    Bodhi: Oh yeah, and let my policy expire. Good idea.

    Johnny Utah: Look Bodhi, people are dead, the ride is over.

    Bodhi: Oh, no no no. I say when it's over.

    Johnny Utah: They will nail you wherever you land. They'll use something new called radar, maybe you've heard of it.

    Bodhi: What is your...

    Johnny Utah: Bodhi, I know you man. When they fall on you, you won't back down and they'll have to burn your ass to the ground.

    Bodhi: Shit happens.

    Johnny Utah: You got a death wish. You want to ride to glory, fine. But, don't take Tyler with you. I'm begging you. Tell me where she is, and I walk away.

    Bodhi: You walk away?

    Johnny Utah: I walk away.

    Bodhi: That's beautiful Johnny.

  • Bodhi: Life sure has a sick sense of humor, doesn't it?

  • Bodhi: Look at it! It's a once in a lifetime opportunity, man! Let me go out there and let me get one wave, just one wave before you take me in. I mean, come on man, where I am I gonna go? Cliffs on both sides! I'm not gonna paddle my way to New Zealand! Come on, compadre. Come on!

  • Bodhi: [during a skydiving game of chicken with Johnny, both falling with no parachute open] Six seconds. We're going to be meat waffles.

  • Bodhi: 100% pure adrenaline!

  • Bodhi: Yo, Johnny! I see you in the next life!

  • Johnny Utah: [while night surfing] I gotta be fucking crazy!

    Bodhi: But are you crazy enough?

  • Nathanial: You acted like nothing happened.

    Bodhi: Relax, Nathanial.

    Nathanial: [shouting] Don't tell me to relax Bodhi! He's a fuckin' federal agent!

    Roach: I should've shot him when I had a chance.

    Grommet: I feel like running.

    Rosie: You do and you die.

    Bodhi: Did you know that we've hit thirty banks in three years and they weren't able to touch us, and all this does is raise the stakes of the game.

    Grommet: [nervously shouting] Fuck the stakes Bodhi! The only one that thinks that this is a game is you, man. This is real. This is serious shit, and I am scared.

    Bodhi: What's the matter with you guys? This was never about the money, this was about us against the system. That system that kills the human spirit. We stand for something. We are here to show those guys that are inching their way on the freeways in their metal coffins that the human sprit is still alive. Don't worry about this guy, okay? I know exactly what to do with him.

  • Bodhi: Little hand says it's time to rock and roll.

  • Roach: Hey man, I'm cold. Really cold.

    Bodhi: Here's your jacket.

    [helps Roach put his jacket on]

    Bodhi: Johnny, hand me that bag of money.

    Johnny Utah: [getting the bag] You're cold because all of the blood is running out of your body, Roach. You're gonna be dead soon. I hope it was worth it.

    Bodhi: Don't listen to him, he's just scared.

    [helps Roach put his parachute pack on]

    Roach: What the fuck are you looking at?

  • Bodhi: Goddamn! You are one radical son of a bitch!

  • Johnny Utah: Bohdi! This is your wakeup call I AM AN F... B... I AGENT!

    Bodhi: I know, isn't it wild!

  • Nathanial: Lawyers don't surf.

    Bodhi: This one does.

  • Bodhi: [getting ready for their next robbery] 90 seconds Johnny. That's all I ask for, just 90 seconds of your life Johnny, that's it. This is our tactic, is we strike fear. Once you get them peeing down their leg, they submit. Also about fear, fear causes hesitation, and hesitation, causes your worst fears to come true.

    [hands Johnny a shot gun]

    Johnny Utah: I can't do this.

    Bodhi: Yes you can, who knows, you might like it.

    Johnny Utah: Bodhi, this is your fucking wake-up call man. I am an F, B, I, Agent!

    Bodhi: Yeah, I know man. Ain't it wild? That's what makes it so interesting. You can do what you want, and make up your own rules. Why be a servant to the law, when you can be its master?

    Grommet: Fuckin' a!

    Nathanial: I love this job.

  • Bodhi: That's, ahh... that's a surfboard all right! Looks like a '57 Chevy I used to have.

  • Bodhi: I know Johnny. I know you want me so bad it's like acid in your mouth. But, not this time.

  • Bodhi: You want me so bad, its like acid in your mouth.

  • Bodhi: I hate this Johnny. I really do. I hate violence. That is why I had Rosie do this, I could never do that man, I could never hold a knife to Tyler's throat, she was my woman. We shared time together. But, Rosie, he's like a machine. He's got this gift of blankness. Once you set him in motion, he will not stop. So, when three o'clock comes, he will gut her like a pig, and try not to get any on his shoes and there is nothing I can do.

  • [Johnny Utah and Bodhi just beat the hell out of 4 surfers]

    Bodhi: This is stimulating, but we're out of here.

  • Bodhi: They only live to get radical.

  • Johnny Utah: [from trailer] Bodhi, do you have any idea how many people you've killed? How many laws you've broken?

    Bodhi: [scoffs] The only law that matters is gravity.

    Johnny Utah: [Bodhi falls off the cliff] STOP!

    [Utah tries to grab Bodhi but falls after him]

  • Bodhi: A tree falls into forest no one puts it on Youtube. Did it really ever happened?

  • Johnny Utah: Your going to steal it

    Bodhi: No were going to give it back

    Bodhi: We must give back more than we take
