Petey Jones: Hey, hey, Lastik. Man, what happened to you?
Louie Lastik: [holding back, in fake pain] Man I just gave your momma a piggy-back ride and she weighs twice as much as I do!
Petey Jones: That ain't funny!

We will be perfect in every aspect of the game. You drop a pass, you run a mile. You miss a blocking assignment, you run a mile. You fumble the football, and i will break my foot off in your John Brown hind parts and then you will run a mile. Perfection. Let's go to work.

Coach Boone

You make sure they remember, forever... the night they played the Titans!

Coach Yoast

Petey Jones: Yes.
Coach Boone: Yes, sir. Why are you smiling?
Petey Jones: 'Cause I love football. Football is fun.
Coach Boone: Fun, sir? It's fun?
Petey Jones: Yes.
Coach Boone: You sure?
Petey Jones: I think...

Petey Jones: Uh, yes.
Coach Boone: Sir.
Petey Jones: Yes... No. Sir.

Petey Jones: Um, it WAS fun.
Coach Boone: Not anymore though, is it? Is it?
Petey Jones: Not right now, no.
Coach Boone: No, it's not fun anymore. Not even a little bit.
Petey Jones: Uh... no.
Coach Boone: Make up your mind. Think ,since you're thinking. Go on, think. Is it fun?
Petey Jones: No, sir.
Coach Boone: No? Absolutely not?
Petey Jones: Zero fun, sir.
Coach Boone: [addresses team] All right, listen up! I'm Coach Boone. I'm gonna tell you about how much... fun you're gonna have this season.

I'm not gonna talk to you tonight about winnin' and losin'. You're already winners 'cause you didn't kill each other up at camp.

Coach Boone

Tonight we got Hayfield. Like all the other schools in this conference, they're all white. They don't have to worry about race. We do. Let me tell you something. You don't let anyone come between us. Nothing tears us apart. In Greek mythology the Titans were greater even than the gods, they ruled their universe with absolute power. Well, that football field out there... that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans.

Coach Boone

People say that it can't work, black, white, here we make it work everyday. We still have our disagreements, of course, but before we reach for hate, always, always, we remember the Titans.

Older Sheryl

Now I may be a mean cuss. But I'm the same mean cuss with everybody out there on that football field. The world don't give a damn about how sensitive these kids are, especially the young black kids. You ain't doin' these kids a favor by patronizing them. You crippling them. You crippling them for life.

Coach Boone

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

Sheryl Yoast: Coach Boone, you did a good job up here. You ran a tough camp from what I can see.
Coach Boone: Well, I'm very happy to have the approval of a five year old.
Sheryl Yoast: I'm nine and a half, thank you very much.
Coach Boone: Why don't you get this little girl, some pretty dolls or something, Coach?
Coach Yoast: I've tried. She loves football.

I love you, sugar.
