Smokey and the Bandit Part 3

Synopsis: Big Enos and Little Enos have opened a seafood restaurant and want to promote it in their usual fashion. The Bandit is unavailable this time, though, so they enlist Buford. "Trigger" is brought out of mothballs, a large fish is strapped to the roof of the car, and the new Bandit is on his way on another wild cross-country run. But where there is the Bandit, there is Sheriff Buford T. Justice.

Bandit, me and Fred've got a question.

What do you and Fred want?

- How come we doing this?

- Why not?

- They said it couldn't be done.

- That's the reason.

That's good with Fred. We're clear.


I'm Big Enos Burdette.

This is my son, Little Enos.

Hold on to your ass, Fred.

What we're dealing with here...

is a complete lack of respect for the law.

Nobody makes Sheriff Buford T. Justice

look like a possum's pecker.

Daddy, look out!

- Daddy?

- Shut up, Junior. I'm thinking.

- What are you thinking about?

- Retiring.


You can all sit down now.

I want to thank you

nice ladies and gentlemen...

and my fellow officers...

for coming here this evening

to celebrate the retirement...

of an old friend, Sheriff Buford T. Justice.

I think I can truthfully say...

that tonight I feel as if I...

were emerging victoriously...

from a 35-year war.

A war to uphold law and order.

Daddy, I'm bored.

I'm bored hearing about your boredom.

That's why I went to all this trouble.

Now we're going to have fun!

As much fun as putting Ex-Lax

in the Dallas water supply?

Yeah, and then cornering the market

on toilet paper.

More fun than that.

And what fond memories

were brought back...

when I saw those 211s, the 502s...

and the DWls and the APBs...

but most of all, those hot pursuits.

You're going to pee in your pants

watching that county mountie...

hump across six states.

I don't think the Sheriff will

buy your plan, frankly.

Trust me, son. If there's one thing

that egomaniac can't refuse...

it's a public challenge.

... that I have marched through

a wave of crime and criminals...

like crap through a moose.

In the '60s, I chased those pimply-faced,

long-haired hippies.

And I caught them.

- Then in the '70s, I chased-

- The Bandit!

What about The Bandit?

Yeah, Daddy? What about The Bandit?

Sit down, you tick turd!

I chased that boy for over 3,000 miles.

Through 20 states.

- But you didn't catch him.

- So I didn't catch him.

What the hell difference does it make?

But I'll bet-

- Okay.

- Okay, what?

- Okay, let's bet.

- What are you talking about?

What we're talking about

is a simple contest, a little race.

And if you win, Sheriff...

we Enoses are going to pony up $250,000.

If you lose, you fork over

that silly symbol...

you've been shoving in people's faces

all these years.

Your badge.

This badge means more to me

than anything else in the world.

And I'd like nothing more

than anything else in the world...

to run you into the ground.

You and that

excuse for a son,

who looks just like

a flea's pecker.

However, I'm going to retire.

I'm going down to Florida

and sit in the sun with my son.

Remember, we're talking about

an awful lot of money here.

So if you change your mind,

you know where to reach us.

Thanks, but no thanks.

And now, ladies and gentlemen,

at this very moment...

I proclaim myself retired.

Buford T. Justice

Fearless law of Texas

The man who chased The Bandit

coast to coast

Buford T. Justice

Now you've up and left us

Where are you, Justice

when we need you the most

Some say you're a lunatic

Some say you're a buffoon

Some say you're a fooI

with a gun

Though you stuck to him like glue

Now who'd have thought you'd walk away

before the job was done

The man who chased The Bandit

coast to coast

Buford T. Justice

Now you've up and left us

Where are you, Justice

when we need you the most

You're a hero to your ego

a legend in your own mind

To serve and protect

has been your word

But can you stand to sit it out

when pride is on the line
