Fillmore: "There's a lotta love out there, you know, man?" Sarge: "Don't embarrass me, Fillmore."

On the last lap, Chick Hicks makes a desperate effort to finally finish ahead of the King and side-swipes him, sending The King into a horrific crash. McQueen, remembering how Doc's crash ended his career, hits his brakes, stopping just short of the finishing line. He stays until Chick passes, before going back and pushing The King to the line to finish his career with dignity. Chick wins the Piston Cup, but is booed as a despicable cheat.
