Hooper: Check this s**t. You got cracker farm boy Luke Skywalker, Nazi poster boy, blond hair, blue eyes. And then you got Darth Vader, the blackest brother in the galaxy, Nubian god! Banky: What's a Nubian? Hooper: Shut the f**k up!
Banky: Alright, now see this? This is a four-way road, OK? And dead in the center is a crisp, new, hundred dollar bill. Now, at the end of each of these streets are four people, OK? Are you following? Holden: Yeah. Banky: Good. Over here, we have a male-affectionate, easy to get along with, non-political agenda lesbian. Down here, we have a man-hating, angry as f**k, agenda of rage, bitter dyke. Over here, we got Santa Claus, and up here the Easter Bunny. Which one is going to get to the hundred dollar bill first? Holden: What is this supposed to prove? Banky: No, I'm serious. This is a serious exercise. It's like an SAT question. Which one is going to get to the hundred dollar bill first? The male-friendly lesbian, the man-hating dyke, Santa Claus, or the Easter bunny? Holden: The man-hating dyke. Banky: Good. Why? Holden: I don't know. Banky: Because the other three are figments of your f**king imagination!
Banky: I feel a hate crime coming on.
Hooper: For years in this industry, whenever an African American character, hero or villain, was introduced - usually by white artists and writers - they got slapped with racist names that singled them out as Negroes. Now, my book, "White-Hating Coon," don't have none of that bullshit. The hero's name is Maleekwa, and he's descended from the black tribe that established the first society on the planet, while all you European... Holden: Ah, that's a bunch of horse-shit! Lando Calrissian was a black guy. He got to fly the Millenium Falcon! Hooper: Who said that? Holden: I did! Lando Calrissian is a strong role-model for the African-American community! Hooper: Man, f**k Lando Calrissian! Uncle-Tom nigger!
Silent Bob: But, by the time I figured this all out, it was too late; she moved on. And all I had to show for it was some foolish pride which then gave way to regret. She was the girl. I know that now. But, I pushed her away. So I've spent everyday since then chasing Amy. So to speak.
Holden and Banky are both characters in J. D. Salinger's novel, "The Catcher in the Rye". (In the novel, "Ed Banky" was a gym teacher who would let students borrow his car so they could make out and have sex with their girlfriends.)
The Button on Hooper's jacket during the "black rage" scene says "The Black Man is God."
Kevin Smith wrote the script to Chasing Amy inspired by his experience with then girlfriend Joey Lauren Adams.
During Hooper's convention speech about racism in science fiction, Star Wars and its sequels are discussed.
After the end credits, Jay and Silent Bob have a final exchange.
Jay and Silent Bob will return in Dogma (we promise)
To all the critics that didn't like our last movie: "All is forgiven."
The director would like to thank...
GOD - For all that's come before, all that'll come after, and most importantly, for right now.
JOEY - For giving me something personal to say. I love you poopie. (First one who laughs gets decked!)

HARVEY - Who, like a good parent, gives us money, offers endless moral support, and spanks us when we need spanking (okay... everything but the spanking part).

MATT SEITZ - For the one review that made a difference.
