This summer...

- Hey Rod, maybe you shouldn't fight Frank this week.
- Relax, Kev. I'm gonna win this time. I did, like, 40 crunches yesterday.
- Get ready to meet your maker. Oh, God!
- We hadn't even started yet!

- I just had a great idea.
- One big jump, gentlemen. The biggest jump this town's ever seen.
- Let's party!

- If I'm gonna jump 15 buses, my body's gonna have to be in top physical form.
- Did we reinforce the take-off ramp?
- Nah, we didn't have time.
- Cool.
- Oh

From Paramount Pictures...

- Ladies and gentleman, it's a jump for the ages. The moment we’ve all been waiting for.
- He's going in circles!

Andy Samberg...

- Who wants to see me do a big-ass stunt?

Hot Rod...

- All great men have moustaches.
- Yeah, but real men actually grow them.
- You know I have a hormone disorder!
- Oooh

RIDERS= Cyclists.

SAMPLE= Demonstration.

STUNTMAN= A man who substitutes for a performer in scenes requiring physical daring or involving physical risk.

WHISKEY/ WHAT/WHY= Many years ago, the H in the interrogative WH-words was pronounced (what /hwɒt/ , when /hwen/ , why /hwaɪ/ , etc.). It was soon lost in America and, later, in England and now nobody pronounces it anymore. So instead of /hw/ we say /w/ . As a hypercorrection, he pronounces an H in “Whiskey” (that also starts with WH-). And as a stupidity, he even pronounces an H in “Will” ( /hwɪl/ ).

CREW MEMBER= A member of a team.

TO PARTY= To have fun going to parties, bars, discos, etc.

RELAX= Don’t worry.

CRUNCHES= A sit-up exercise to strengthen abdominal muscles.

MEET YOUR MAKER= Die. Your Maker is God (the one who made you), so if you die you go to heaven and meet your Maker. In a colloquial way it is use to mean: “I’m going to defeat you”.

I’M JUST KIDDING= I’m not serious, it was only a joke.

MEAN= Unkind, cruel, malicious.

A STUNT= A feat displaying unusual strength, skill, or daring. The colloquial and rude adjective “big-ass” is just emphasizing.

MOUSTACHES= Pronounced as in French /məstɑ:ʃ/

A HORMONE DISORDER= When your body doesn’t produce hormones in the correct measure, so some things in your body don’t work correctly (in this case he can’t grow hair on his face).
