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?

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

Daniel

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

Frank

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

Frank

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

Daniel

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

This entire year's been a waste! I've just blown another year of eligibility!
