Coach Norman Dale

Coach Norman Dale: What's gotten into you?
Strap Purl: It's the Lord, I can feel His strength!

Kitty Fane: Walter, I'm pregnant.
Walter Fane: Kitty, am I the father?
Kitty Fane: I honestly don't know. I'm sorry.
Walter Fane: Well, it doesn't matter now. Does it?

Coach Norman Dale: What's on your mind?
Everett Flatch: Well, coach... what you're doin' with my dad. I'm not seein' it. I mean, he's a drunk... he'll do somethin' stupid...
Coach Norman Dale: When's the last time anyone gave your father a chance?
Everett Flatch: He don't deserve a chance!

Coach Norman Dale: Sit down.
Rade: You gotta have five out there!
Coach Norman Dale: Sit... down!
Referee: You need one more, coach.
Coach Norman Dale: My team's on the floor!

Coach Norman Dale: Five players on the floor functioning as one single unit: team, team, team - no one more important that the other.

Strap, God wants you on the floor.

Welcome to Indiana basketball.

Coach Norman Dale

I know everything there is to know about the greatest game ever invented.

Wilbur 'Shooter' Flatch

If you put your effort and concentration into playing to your potential, to be the best that you can be, I don't care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, in my book we're gonna be winners.

Coach Norman Dale

Kitty Fane: It's raining cats and dogs.
Kitty Fane: I said it's raining cats and dogs.
Walter Fane: Yes, I heard you.
Kitty Fane: You might have answered.
Walter Fane: I suppose I'm not used to speaking unless I've something to say.
Kitty Fane: If people only spoke when they had something to say, the human race would soon lose the power of speech.

There's nowhere I'd rather be than here with you.
