From The Cannonball Run (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082136/quotes#qt0323937) (1981)
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): What's Dr. Gay do?
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): He's my shrink. He was committed yesterday.
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): Why?
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): He was smoking bananas. He gets very upset when he talks to 'Him'.
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): So do I!

J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): Look, we can't have a car with numbers on it. So, we're going to have to disguise the car somehow.
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): Alright.
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): How about a big, black limousine with diplomatic plates?
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): Nah!
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): Nah. I know, a bloodmobile. They wouldn't stop a bloodmobile, would they?
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): Nah!
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): Nah.
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): An ice cream truck! Yeah, an ice cream truck! Y'know, they gotta get there before it melts!

J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): Thanks to you, Victor, we do not have a female patient in the back. Thanks to your wonderful cousin Tessie.
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): Well, it's not my fault that she didn't fit in the stretcher!
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): She doesn't fit in the AMBULANCE!

J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): I'm sure that doctor's a very sweet man, basically.
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): Oh, thank you.
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): But don't you ever tell me where you found him. Ever.

[J.J. and Victor are pulled over by two priests in a red Ferrari]
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): Nice car, Father!
Jamie Blake (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001509/): Thank you, *******.

Captain Chaos: "Anti radar paint.....turbo charged, JJ...nothing can stop us now...ha ha ha..NOTHING
Cop: [J.J. avoids a roadblock and wrecks the Porsche] What are you, some kind of nut? Who do you think you are?
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): Da-dum-duuummmm! I, am Captain Chaos! And this, this is my faithful companion, Cato... Say hello, Cato!
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): [cop looks in disgust] Been a cop long?

Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): [after J.J. tells him to find a doctor to ride with them in the ambulance] Where do doctors hang out?
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): I don't know! Pubs... golf courses!
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): Hospitals?
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): Yeah- check those too.

Fenderbaum (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0002035/): [Fenderbaum and Blake's Ferrari drives alongside J.J.'s ambulance] Pull over! We want to give you our blessing!
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): J.J., there are two priests in that car. They want us to pull over.
J.J. McClure (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/): Victor, that's two priests driving a Ferrari. When's the last time you saw two priests drive a Ferrari? What are they doing, taking home the bingo money?
Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): No, they're doing the work of the Lord. In a Ferrari, they can just do it faster.

Victor Prinsi (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001123/): Thank you, Father.
Fenderbaum (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0002035/): Why don't you take that piece of **** back to the junkyard?
[laughs and drives away]

This sucks, first Bea Arthur now Dom Deluise. I wish we had talent like this on television today and not some I'm a nobody reality TV show host.

We've truly lost precious treasure. Rest in peace Captain Chaos!!

Is it bad that I thought he died years ago?

Which means I already did my mourning and thus, feel nothing for him now.
