Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris: Damndest thing. So, What's the plan? I know you got one, so you might as well tell me what it is.
Frankie Dunn: It's your fault. Yeah, it's your fault she's lying in there like that. You kept after me until I trained her. I knew i shouldn't have done it, her being a girl and all. Everything keot telling me not to. Everything but you.

Maggie Fitzgerald: They took my leg, boss.
Frankie Dunn: It's gonna be alright, you hear?
Maggie Fitzgerald: I always hear your voice, boss.

I'm gonna get you out of here. These doctors around here don't know squat. Otherwise, why would they be living out here in the desert? As soon as you're able to be moved, we'll find someplace where they've actually studied medicine.

Frankie Dunn

Maggie Fitzgerald: Will you tell him I'm real sorry?
Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris: No. I will do no such thing, Maggie.

British referee: Ten minutes, love.
Maggie Fitzgerald: Man says he loves me.
Frankie Dunn: Well, he's probably not the first one to say that.
Maggie Fitzgerald: First since my daddy.
Frankie Dunn: Hmm.
Maggie Fitzgerald: I win, you think he'll propose?
Frankie Dunn: You win, I'LL propose.

Maggie Fitzgerald: Mr. Dunn?
Frankie Dunn: Hmm. I owe you money?
Maggie Fitzgerald: No sir.
Frankie Dunn: I know your mama?
Maggie Fitzgerald: Don't rightly know, sir.
Frankie Dunn: Then what is it you want?

Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris: The body knows what fighters don't: how to protect itself. A neck can only twist so far. Twist it just a hair more and the body says, "Hey, I'll take it from here because you obviously don't know what you're doing... Lie down now, rest, and we'll talk about this when you regain your senses." It's called the knockout mechanism.

And I challenge the "Motor City Cobra", Thomas "Hit Man" Hearns to fight me for the Welterweight Championship of the whole world!

Danger Barch

Maggie Fitzgerald: Did you see the fight?
Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris: Of course I did. You had her cold, Maggie.
Maggie Fitzgerald: I shouldn't have dropped my hand. I shouldn't have turned. Always protect myself... how many times did he tell me that?

Maggie Fitzgerald: Working the bag, boss.
Frankie Dunn: I'm not your boss. And that bag's working you.

Seems there are Irish people everywhere, or people who want to be.

Million Dollar Baby Quotes

If there's magic in boxing, it's the magic of fighting battles beyond endurance, beyond cracked ribs, ruptured kidneys and detached retinas. It's the magic of risking everything for a dream that nobody sees but you.
