Mr. Thorndyke:
[to Jim, about Herbie] Good sir, would you say this is a compact car?


[Jim stares]



Mr. Thorndyke:
You do not answer. Well, let me tell you that you've never heard of a compact until you see what I'm going to do with this. Mr. Douglas, I have a friend with a "claw-and-hook auto wrecking company" in San Francisco, and he's going to work on your car. Maybe he'll transform it into a birdbath. Or what about a nice doormat, so I can wipe my feet on it everyday. It's too bad this thing doesn't have the gumption to get up to the starting line this morning. I should have enjoyed beating it.


[kicks Herbie again, and Tennessee lets out this loud shrieking grunt]

[a police car drives up as Jim stops Herbie from driving off the Golden Gate Bridge with Jim winding up on the car's hood]



Policeman on Bridge:
[examining Jim's tired body on Herbie's hood] Boy, was he lucky. This little car saved his life.



Policeman on bridge:
What do you mean the car saved his life?



Policeman on Bridge:
Well, that's what it looked like for a moment there. I...


[laughs]



Policeman on Bridge:
You know how funny things look in the fog sometimes?



Policeman on bridge:
I think you've been up on that Haight-Ashbury beat too long.

Carole:
Have you had much experience with cars?



Jim Douglas:
Look, lady, by profession, I'm a racing driver.



Carole:
Oh, THAT Jim Douglas.



Jim Douglas:
What do you mean, "THAT Jim Douglas"?



Carole:
Let's see, two years ago, at Laguna Seca, you spun out and hung a beautiful Buick Special on the back fence. At Willow Springs, a year ago last February, you sprayed a Lotus all over the infield.



Jim Douglas:
How do you know all that?



Carole:
I have trouble with names and faces, but I never forget a car.

Mr. Thorndyke:
I salute your honesty, my dear, a quality not necessarily to be despised.

[Thorndyke kicks not-yet-named "Herbie" the little white car in his shop]



Jim Douglas:
What's that for?



Mr. Thorndyke:
I beg your pardon!



Jim Douglas:
Well, why don't you let the little car alone?



Mr. Thorndyke:
Are you presuming to tell me what to do in my own establishment?



Jim Douglas:
Ok, I'm out of line. It just bugs me to see somebody abusing a decent piece of machinery.
