Movie Quotes

“Careers and higher education are leading to the masculinization of women, with enormously dangerous consequences to the home, the children, and our country. When our boys come home from war, what kind of girls will they be coming home to? And now the most disgusting example of this sexual confusion: Mr. Walter Harvey of Harvey bars is presenting us with women’s baseball. Right here in Chicago, young girls plucked from their families are gathered at Harvey Field, to see which one of them can be the most masculine. Mr. Harvey, like your candy bars, you’re completely… nuts.” – Maida Gillespie
“Uh, Lord, hollowed be Thy name. May our feet be swift; may our bats be mighty; may our balls… be plentiful. Lord, I’d just like to thank You for that waitress in South Bend. You know who she is – she kept calling Your name. And God, these are good girls, and they work hard. Just help them see it all the way through. Okay, that’s it.” – Jimmy Dugan

“Great game, Jimmy. I especially liked the move in the seventh inning when you scratched your balls for an hour.” – Ira Lowenstein

“Well, bite my butt and call me an apple! She nearly took her head off!” – Stadium Announcer
