Quote of the Day: Major League


Heywood: [Hayes has just reached on an infield single] You really knocked the crap out of that one.
Willie Mays Hayes: Oh, I plan to get at least a double out of this.
[shows Heywood his black gloves]
Willie Mays Hayes: I bought a hundred of these. One for every base I’m gonna steal. Excuse me while I take my first step toward the Hall of Fame.
Heywood: My ass.
Harry Doyle: [Hayes takes his lead off first base] We don’t know where Hayes played last year, but I’m sure he did a hell of a job.
Heywood: Real hard to steal second with your shoe untied.
Harry Doyle: [Hayes looks down, then gets thrown out by the pitcher] Throw to first… Hayes is picked off! Personally, I think we got hosed on that call.

Quote of the Day: Tucker: The Man and His Dream

Abe: [to Tucker] … When I was a little kid, maybe five years old, in the old country, my mother used to say to me; she’d warn me, she’d say, ‘Don’t get too close to people. You’ll catch their dreams… ‘… Years later, I realized I misunderstood her… ‘Germs’, she said, not ‘dreams’, ‘You’ll catch their *germs*’…
[they both laugh]
Abe: I want you to know something, Tucker. I went into business with you for one reason – to make money. That’s all… How was I to know…
[chokes up, head down]
Abe: … if I got too close, I’d catch your dreams…
