Mensagem:  Anyway it is interesting how the human mind works. After all is there a connection between an overtake (ultrapassagem) and a quickie (rapidinha)?

quickie
: something done or made in a hurry

By "something" M-W's, from which I pasted and copied this definition, actually means "anything." So technically, yes, you can do a quickie overtake on a slow motorist at which point you can then establish a connection. (As you approach another slow motorist on the highway, you will from now on simply "pull another quickie" on the sluggish bastard and leave him well behind.)
