Evel Knievel:[speaking to the camera]Ladies and gentlemen, you have no idea how good it makes me feel to be here today. It is truly an honor to risk my life for you. An honor.

That jump you're going to make is impossible, but I already have my tickets because I want to see you splatter." That's right, that's what he said. And I told that boy last night that nothing is impossible.
Evel Knievel:A Roman general in the time of Caesar had a motto - "If it is possible, it is done. If it is impossible... it will be done." And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what I live by.
Evel Knievel:I am the last gladiator in the New Rome. I go into the arena and I compete against destruction and I win! And next week I go out there and I do it again.

Nurse #1:Do you have a statement for his wife yet, Doctor?
Doc Kincaid:Well he's broken his arm, his legs, his back... he didn't break his neck. I don't understand it, but he didn't break his neck.
