Nurse: Only kin's allowed in here.
Bertier: Alice, are you blind? Don't you see the family resemblance? That's my brother.

Coach Boone: Eight.
Coach Paul 'Doc' Hines: Yeah, twelve sounds better.

You look like a bunch of fifth grade sissies after a cat fight! You got anger, that's good. You're gonna need it. You got aggression. That's even better you're gonna need that, too. But any little two year old child can throw a fit! Football is about controlling that anger, harnessing that aggression into a team effort to achieve perfection!

Coach Boone

Big Ju: There's too much male bonding in here.
Bertier: Enough!
Big Ju: What is going on here?
