Nostalgic Movie

So, bobsled is one of sport, winter sport, in Olympics. Maybe we rather unfamiliar with them, and so do I. I knew about this kind of sport from movie name’s “Cool Runnings”. Since I watched it soooo long ago, I rather forget the detail story. Memory that remains is the sad ending but, yet, inspirational.

***

Sanka: So what are we going to name the sled?
Junior: How about, Talulah.
Rest of team: [Laughing] Talulah!
Sanka: Sounds like a two-dollar hooker. How’d you come up with that?
Junior: Hey, that’s my mother’s name. [Team converses in agreement]
Sanka: [to Derice] What’s it gonna be, star? What are the people gonna be screaming when Jamaica takes the hill?
Derice: I say we call it, ‘Cool Runnings.’
Junior: Beautiful, I like it.
Yul: Very strong.
Coach Irv: Nice, very nice, but… what exactly does it mean?
Derice: Cool runnings means, “peace be the journey.”
Team: [Toasting] Cool Runnings.
Messenger: Excuse me…
Sanka: [Toasting] To the man in the orange suit.
Sanka: [Toasting] To the messenger.
Coach Irv: [Ashen-faced, after reading the letter] We are officially…disqualified.

Irv: Derice, a gold medal is a wonderful thing, but if you’re not enough without it, you’ll never be enough with it.
Derice: Hey coach, how will I know if I’m enough?
Irv: When you cross that finish line, you’ll know.
