Sally Wheeler: You lied to me!
David Greene: I didn't lie to you! I lied to my father! I lied to myself!

Dr. Bartram: ...and the meek shall inherit the earth.
David Green: I wonder how meek they'll be when they do, sir.

Dr. Bartram: Was it worth it? Breaking a tradition just to win a football game?
David Green: Your tradition or mine, sir?

I'll honor your traditions, I'll go to the Dean and I will lie.

David Green

True story, last weekend there was a religious revival at Madison Square Garden. Bishop Fulton Sheen made such a stirring speech that 10,000 people converted to Catholicism. Then Billy Graham got up and did some inspired preaching and 10,000 people converted to Protestantism, then to close the program, Pat Boone got up and sang "There's A Gold Mine In The Sky" and 20,000 Jews joined the Air Force!

David Green: You're never going to forget this happened. You used me for football, now I'll use you to get into Harvard.

McGoo: What's you're point, Connors?
Jack Connors: He's a good guy.

McGivern: If I don't get total tit tonight, I will be using this razor to cut my throat. As I see it, sex is my only reason for living.
