You've got your head so far up your ass about that damn football team, you don't get the fact that you just got a year of top quality education! Waste? Quit wasting my time!

Fortune

You're a Ruettiger! There's nothing in the world wrong with being a Ruettiger!

Daniel

If you are a part of that team, then my opinion of Notre Dame football just hit the shits!

Frank

That semester at junior college sure didn't make you any smarter.

Frank

Dan Devine: You all already know this, but this is the most important game of your lives. No excuses, do the work. Our lady of victory...
All: Pray for us!

Frank: Ara again? You gonna get an autographed picture and kiss it every night before you go to bed?
Rudy: What is your problem?
Frank: Or maybe he'll give you permission to wipe his ass.

D-Bob: Are you learning stenography or something? Everything he's mouthing is in the goddamn book.
Rudy: I gotta make an A in this class.
D-Bob: Just remember "Sitz im Leben" and it shouldn't be a problem.

Pete: Hey, you were a pretty big Notre Dame fan!
Frank: Yeah, and I used to collect baseball cards too!

What's a lapsed Catholic to do?

D-Bob

Fortune: Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey... What are you doing here, don't you have practice?
Rudy: Not anymore, I quit.
Fortune: Oh, well, since when are you the quitting kind?
Rudy: I don't know I just don't see the point anymore.
Fortune: So you didn't make the dress list. There are greater tragedies in the world.
Rudy: I wanted to run out of that tunnel for my dad to prove to everyone that I worked...
Fortune: Prove what!?
Rudy: That I was somebody.

Rudy: I'm sorry I never got you to see your first game in here.
Fortune: Hell I've seen too many games in this stadium.
Rudy: I thought you said you never saw a game...
Fortune: I've never seen a game from the stands.
Rudy: You were a player?

Ara Parseghian: What's your problem, O'Hare?
Jamie O'Hara: Last practice of the season and this asshole thinks it's the Super Bowl!
Ara Parseghian: You just summed up your entire sorry career here in one sentence! If you had one tenth of the heart of Ruettiger, you'd have made All-American by now! As it is, you just went from third team to the scout team! Get out of here!

Rudy Quotes

You're five foot nothin. A hundred and nothin. And you have barely a speck of athletic ability. And you hung in there with the best college football players in the land for two years. You're gonna walk outta here with a degree from the University of Notre Dame. In this life, you don't have to prove nothin' to nobody but yourself. Am I making myself clear?

Fortune

No one, and I mean no one, comes into our house and pushes us around.

Dan Devine
