  • Johnny Utah: [Drops an ex president mask at Bodhis feet] Lose something, brah?

  • Johnny Utah: [analyzing a hair sample] The beaches are always being closed because of waste spills, right? And surfers are territorial, they stick to certain breaks. If we can get some hair samples, and get a match to a certain beach, we'd know which break the Ex-Presidents surf. You buyin' this?

    Pappas: No. But let's do it anyway; it'll drive Harp crazy.

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

    Bodhi: But are you crazy enough?

  • Diving Instructor: Heads up, Pappas. I want to see you retrieve at least two bricks.

    Pappas: [puts on blindfold] I've been on the job for over 20 years, and I fail to see what fishing bricks from the bottom of a pool has got to do with bank robbery. And on top of that, they got me babysitting some quarterback punk, named Johnny Unitas or something.

    Johnny Utah: The shit they pull, huh?

    Pappas: Yeah!

    Diving Instructor: Pappas... meet your new partner.

    Pappas: What?

    [removes blindfold]

    Johnny Utah: [waves]

    Pappas: Pappas. Angelo Pappas.

    Johnny Utah: Punk. Quarterback Punk.

    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?

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

    Bodhi: I know, isn't it wild!

  • 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.

  • Ben Harp: Special agent Utah! This is not some job, flipping burgers at the local drive-in! Yes! - your surf board bothers me! Yes! - your approach to this whole damn case bothers me! And yes! - YOU BOTHER ME! And Pappas! Oh, for the love of Christ. How the hell did I even let you talk me into this whole bone-headed idea to begin with.

    Pappas: Harp! We are working under-cover. It takes time. We've produced a few...

    Ben Harp: NO! No no no no no no NO! Let me tell you what you've produced... Over the last two weeks, you two have produced exactly squat! SQUAT! During which time the ex-presidents have robbed two more banks. Now for Christ's sake, does either one of you have anything even remotely interesting to tell me?

    [brief pause]

    Johnny Utah: I caught my first tube today... Sir.

  • Johnny Utah: Okay. I get it. This is where you tell me that "locals rule", and that Yuppie insects like me shouldn't be surfing the break, right?

    Bunker Weiss: [smiling] Nope.

    Surf gang: That would be a waste of time...

    Lupton "Warchild" Pittman: We're just gonna fuck you up!

  • Johnny Utah: You're sayin' the FBI's gonna pay me to learn to surf?

  • [after a long discussion about which parachute Johnny Utah should use]

    Johnny Utah: You gonna jump or jerk off?

  • Johnny Utah: I went to law school - I got a football scholarship!

  • Johnny Utah: Bohdi this is your FUCKING wake up call man. I AM AN F... B... I AGENT!

    Bohdi: I know, isn't it wild!

  • Johnny Utah: They believe their moral crusaders working for a greater cause

    Pappas: [dismissive] Every criminal believes what he or she is doing is for a higher purpose

  • Johnny Utah: Your going to steal it

    Bodhi: No were going to give it back

    Bodhi: We must give back more than we take

  • Pappas: Have you ever surfed

    Johnny Utah: Yeah

    Pappas: [points to the squall] But have you ever surfed anything like 'that'
