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

We're gonna go inside, we're gonna go outside, inside and outside. We're gonna get 'em on the run, boys, and once we get 'em on the run, we're gonna keep 'em on the run. And then we're gonna go go go go go go and we're not gonna stop 'til we get across that goal line. This is a team they say is... is good. Well, I think we're better than them. They can't lick us, so what do you say, men?

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!

I rode the bench for two years. Thought I wasn't being played because of my color, I got filled up with a lotta attitude. So I quit. Still not a week goes by I don't regret it. And I guarantee a week won't go by in your life you won't regret walking out, letting them get the best of ya. You hear me clear enough?

Fortune

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.
