COACH ORION
[picks hockey puck up off the ice and addresses the Ducks] What's the one thing all great teams have in common?
LESTER AVERMAN
Great coaching.
COACH ORION
[unamused] Don't try to suck up to me, Averman. [pause] Defense. See, unlike scoring, defense never quits. But to play great defense you need one thing above all else.
LESTER AVERMAN
[sarcastically, to Goldberg] Bet it starts with a W.
COACH ORION
Confidence. Listen, if you learn nothin' else when you're here, you learn this, all right? This is not just about hockey. It's easy to be confident when you have control of the puck. It's very, very difficult to keep that confidence when you gotta take whatever strange bounces life throws your way. Don't be careless, but don't be too careful either. You cannot be afraid to lose! That's how you gain the confidence to attack the game when the puck isn't yours. That's how you attack life... even when you think you don't have any control. And that's how you play real defense.

COACH ORION
Hey Charlie. We've really backed into a corner here. We hold them for 2 minutes, we've got ourselves a tie.
CHARLIE CONWAY
We're up to it.
COACH ORION
I know you are. But you deserve to win. Not carless, but not to careful either. You see your shot take it. [Puts a "C" on Charlie's jersey] Go get them Captain.

You can learn a lot from ants. These Brazilian fire ants can teach you a lot about successful societal structure. You see, there's one queen in there, the rest are dedicated worker ants. Everybody pulls their weight nobody complains same here at Eden Hall, only you are the workers; the backbone.
RUSS
And you're the queen? [everyone snickers]

[to priest] Excuse me, one second. [takes Hans' jersey and lays it on the coffin, then addresses the 'Ducks'] Every time you touch the ice, remember that it was Hans who taught us to fly.

GORDON BOMBAY
I was like you, Charlie. When I played hockey, I was a total hot shot... tried to take control of every game. I wound up quitting. So I tried the law. Same thing. I ruled the courtroom, but inside I was a mess. Started drinking. Man, I was going down. But then this great thing happened, maybe the best thing ever: I got arrested and sentenced to community service. And there you were: Charlie and the Ducks. And as hard as I fought it, there you were. You gave me a life, Charlie, and I want to say thank you. I told Orien about all this when I talked to him about taking over. I told him that you were the heart of the team and that you would learn something from each other. I told him that you were the real Minnesota Miracle Man.
CHARLIE CONWAY
[astonished] You did?
GORDON BOMBAY
[nods] So be that man, Charlie. Be that man.
