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


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


[Upon entering Notre Dame Stadium] This is the most beautiful sight these eyes have ever seen!


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: 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?

[addressing players] Let me put it to you as clean as I can. We have 95 players here so accomplished as athletes in high school, we gave them scholarships to the finest football program in the land. NCAA regulations allow us to dress just 60 for home games. That means 35 scholarship players will be watching the games from the stands. Now, if any of you has any dreams of one day running out of that tunnel with your gold helmet shining in the sun, you'd best leave them right here. Of you 15 dreamers out there, maybe we'll keep one or two. My job is to basically beat the shit out of you for the next five days. Our first teams are gonna pound on you like you're their worst enemies. Your greatest value to us is that we don't care if you get hurt. Like what you hear so far? Anybody want to run home to Mama? Joe, they're all yours.

Coach Warren

He's so little!


Who cares how much effort I put in, if it doesn't produce any results?

Rudy Quotes

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

Dan Devine

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?
