Best Tow Mater Quotes From Cars

“Yeah, like ‘Tuh-Mater’ but without the ‘Tuh’!”

Tow Mater – Cars

Leave it to Mater to make a funny instance out of introducing himself. Name Tow Mater and like Tuh Mater… now that’s funny right there.

“I’m happier ‘n a tornado in a trailer park!”

Tow Mater – Cars

One of his best qualities are his adorable sayings such as this one. Plus he finally got his dream of riding in of them fancy helicopters. So of course he was happier than a tornado in a trailer park.

“(spits out drink) He did WHAT in his cup?”

Tow Mater

Not Mater absolutely mishearing what Lightning McQueen said about the Piston Cup and spitting out his drink in utter dismay. Little moments like this from Mater add a much needed jolly humorous tone to the movie.

“My best friend”

Tow Mater – Cars

This is by far one of the best moments in the movie when Mater tells McQueen that he made a good choice in choosing his best friend. This was so sweet because for Lightning Mcqueen, he hadn’t really had any friends let alone a best friend but now he has this great relationship and with Mater of all cars.

“Wreck? Shoot! I’m the world’s best backwards driver! Just watch this right here, lover boy.”

Tow Mater

Maters subtle flex on Lightning for his backwards driving skills is perfect. Lightning couldn’t drive backwards if he wanted to but Mater? He’s a true pro at it so it gives Mater the one up on the fancy race car that can drive super fast.

“Hey, I know this may be a bad time right now, but you owe me $32,000 in legal fees.”

Tow Mater

Lol This is one of the funniest Tow Mater Quotes! Not Mater losing the case, delaying Lightning McQueen from getting back to his race but then throwing on the “btw you owe me money” at the end of it… He got his bag though so good for him, but definitely sucks for Lightning.

“I’m just kiddin’. She just likes me for my body”

Tow Mater – Cars

Mater getting all the ladies, including Miss Sally is what we’re all here for and he deserves it. He’s so sweet and true to himself its the best thing ever and he deserves all the ladies to like him for his body.

“Where are ya? Shoot! You’re in Radiator Springs, the cutest little town in Carburetor County.”

Tow Mater

Mater has always had this special cheer about him when it came to Radiator Springs. The town he loves and calls home is so special to him and we love it.

“Boy, I tell you what. I bet the roads on the moon ain’t this smooth.”

Tow Mater

Mater’s childlike behavior and utter dismay at the smooth new fancy roads Lightning McQueen done made for them was so cute. He was absolutely having a blast and we are all here for it.

“Hey, listen, listen! If anybody asks you, we was out smashin’ mailboxes, okay?”

Tow Mater

Him and his mischievous activities such as tractor tippin’… This was another comedic moment that just shows how Mater was up to no good sometimes. Him coming from out of nowhere and trying to get an alibi from Lightning was so random yet not a surprise coming from Mater.


Tow Mater – Cars

Lol I love how Tow Mater’s Catchphrase is sooo cute! I remember it became such a popular phrase that I even started saying it a ton! Git-R-Done!!!

Best Tow Mater Quotes From Cars 2

“Well Doc would’ve been real proud of you. That’s for sure.”

Tow Mater

Mater has always been Lightning Mcqueen’s biggest fan and its sweet how much he supports him and cheers him on. We love these sweet moments in the movie because developing relationships was honestly what started the Cars franchise.

“I come by each one of ’em with my best friend Lightning McQueen. I don’t fix these. I wanna remember these dents forever.”

Tow Mater – Cars 2

This is one of the best Tow Mater Quotes! Okay, this moment didn’t need to make me tear up the way it did. Mater keeping all of his dents as memories of his great times with his friends is so sweet.

Even though some might see him and think he’s a beat up car, to him he wears it loud and proud. To Mater looking and being different is so special and this is the best message.

“Listen fellas… I know what you’re going through. Many have been laughin’ and makin’ fun of me my whole life. But becoming rich and powerful beyond your wildest dreams ain’t gonna make ya feel better.”

Tow Mater

To hear Mater express the way he’s felt and how he understood these lemon cars in the movie was really moving. You always see Mater with a smile and he always seems so care free and jolly but deep down he’s been through a lot.

When you look different, act different and you stand out from the crowd then you often get mistreated or bullied but that shouldn’t make you turn into the bully. It was sad to hear but is something a lot of people deal with and was a nice message.

“Whatever you do, do not eat the free pistachio ice cream… It has turned.”

Tow Mater

Okay, I’m not sure about anyone else but Mater eating the Wasabi like it was ice cream had me in tears. I can’t even eat a spoonful of Wasabi let alone an entire plate like he did. His poor soul… and he still just thought it was spoiled ice cream in the end. Life lesson? Don’t eat the free “pistachio” ice cream lol.

“But as much fun as it was hangin’ with y’all, this… This is home.”

Tow Mater – Cars 3

This is one of my favorite Tow Mater Quotes, Mater’s skill as a spy without even trying was super cool to see. He’s this silly, goofy guy but in the end he was able to absolutely crush it as a spy and figured out the bad guys. He did so well the Queen herself wanted him personally on a job but in the end he chose to stay home in Radiator Springs with his family than to pursue his career he always wanted as a spy.

“Check it out. They let me keep the rockets.”

Tow Mater

Mater keeping the rockets at the end was a cherry on top. If you think about it, Mater with the rockets makes him the fastest car in the cars universe… Crazy!

“That Italian feller you got on there can’t talk that way about Lightning McQueen. He’s the bestest race car in the whole wide world.”

Tow Mater – Cars 3

Okay, Mater coming to Lightning McQueens defense on live national television was the best thing ever. He sure told that race car fella Francesco how he felt and we were here for it.

“Well what’s going on is, I’ve got me a date tomorrow.”

Tow Mater

Mater ending up with the fanciest date and no one believing him was just typical. But in the end he showed them.

“What’s everyone on the wrong side of the road for?”

Tow Mater – Cars 3

I was personally surprised through the entire movie that Mater didn’t crash in London with them driving on the “wrong” side of the road. Him driving in London actually worried me but it seems as though he got out with just a few precious dents.

“You know, I always wanted to be a spy.”

Tow Mater

Okay, Mater wanting to be a spy and being given the chance to be a spy is everything. He got to live his wildest international spy dreams.

Tow Mater

Him sneaking into the trailer to be with Lightning before the race so Lightning wouldn’t get lonely in his dark trailer was so sweet. Mater is such a thoughtful tow truck always there for his best friend.

“You are not a nice guy! But you sure do make a quality mudflap at a reasonable price.”

Mater being mean but not mean in the same sentence is exactly what we expect from the world most trusty rusty tow truck.
