Tenley: If you want big rewards, you gotta take big risks. Miles: Excuse me, I am tired of living a lie. I need it to be known that I like a big girl. In fact, a large, zaftig, voluptuous, full-figured, big-boned, massive-assive honey, that is what gets me going. I like fat women and they like me... big girls need love too, baby! Billy: Hey Ryan, Miles here thinks you have a nice pooper. Ryan: She was fat? Billy: This girl had strings hanging from her the last time they steered her down the street. Billy: So you mow her lawn, and now you're trying to mow her lawn? Billy: Wood bats suck! Why do you think God invented aluminum? Ryan: I feel comfortable in my thong! Tenley: Let yourself be great. Ryan: She was big huh? Billy: Yeah, she was fat and that ain't with a p-h kid! Billy: [looks back at Miles's girlfriend] That is unhealthy... Miles: Can we not do this again? Billy: Domo, don't you think that's unhealthy? Mickey Dominguez: [shrugs shoulders] Billy: Wait, you think all sex is unhealthy. Never mind... What I'm sayin' is... Miles, these women are too big to be foolin' with... I'm afraid that in the heat of passion, one of 'em is gonna roll over on you... squash you dead! Ryan: [angry at the umpire at the Hyannis game] Does his wife know he's screwin us? John Schiffner: All right, let's not have a meltdown... Billy: It's me... Ryan: What? Billy: Yeah, I don't think he appreciates me fartin' in his face all night... First it was accidental, now I'm tryin' to make him cry... and I'm pretty sure I just poo-pooed in my panties... Ryan: [to Pete after he tells Ryan that he's a great pitcher]
Yeah? Well... What you think don't mean shit!...
[Pete and Auggie are confused] Ryan: ...What?... Look all that matters is making it... Getting signed and cashing a check! And right now, I'm lucky if some scout from Po-dunk lets me pitch batting practice for the next couple of seasons! Auggie: No you're wrong! Ryan: Bullshit! That's all that matters! Auggie: No bullshit! What matters is there's some of us who would say you've already made it! Some of us - Some of us who've been there for you... Who drove to Boston College to see you pitch and who went to Framingham State, and sat at your Mom's wake with you... And who cleaned you up behind the OASIS when you couldn't pick YOURSELF up off the ground! And who let you live with me... When you and your old man were at it!... Yeah we matter... I matter... You bet your ass what I think matters... I ain't missed one game Ry... Not one game! And I'm - I'm proud as hell you've done what you've done... When you hit that mound man, I got all I can do to keep from cryin' thinkin about what we've been through... Me and him and your Father and Mike... None of us has missed a game... This ain't just about a paycheck Ry... It's - It's about having pride in what you do... Cuz - Cuz I do... Tenley: You don't understand... Ryan: Understand what? Being broke? I understand! Tenley: No... Ryan: Understand what? Doing something you love? I understand! I love standing on that mound with a baseball in my hand... Staring at a guy holdin' a club *60* feet away... KNOWING... that he can't touch me... It is the only place in the world that I feel powerful... Tenley: Why are you so scared? Ryan: Scared of what? Tenley: Of everything! Success? Love? You say you love getting on that mound and playing baseball! Why would you ever settle for cutting grass? Sean Dunne: Mr. Parrish. Remember my son Ryan? Ryan: How are you doing? Rand Parrish: Fellows, could you do me a favor and not park on the main driveway? Just use the service drive from now on. Thanks. Sean Dunne: I drove by the Chamberlains'. I thought you were going to do their lawn. Ryan: I had practice. Sean Dunne: How's the coach? Ryan: I told you not to talk to him. Sean Dunne: I didn't. Ryan: Someone told him the story about Mom dying. Sean Dunne: Maybe someone's trying to help you. Ryan: Thanks, but I can screw this up on my own. Sean Dunne: Tough loss tonight. Nine innings, six hits, five runs, three walks, eight strikeouts and one big mistake. I was talking to one of the scouts, the guy in the suspenders. He's from the Phillies. He was curious about your college career. I made up a few stories. Ryan: That's great, Dad. Sean Dunne: I'm trying to help here, hotshot. Most important thing in your life, you don't want my help? Not interested? Ryan: I got some place to be!
