GERRY BERTIER
[lying down on bed] I ain't looking at that for two weeks man. Take it down.
JULIUS 'BIG JU' CAMPBELL
Well, you can close your eyes for two weeks for all I care. Why don't you look at your wall and I'll look at mine.
BERTIER
[getting up] I'll look wherever I want to, and I don't wanna be looking at that for two weeks.
BIG JU
Then you better use your x-ray vision, Superman, and look right through it, cause it ain't coming down.
ALAN BOSLEY
[opens door, and shouts] FIGHT! [white and black players join in the melee]
COACH YOAST
This is about setting a good example for our boys and the community.
COACH BOONE
I don't scratch my head 'til it itches, and I don't dance until I hear some music, I will not be intimidated. That's just the way it is.
COACH YOAST
You want to carry your sinful pride to your grave, that's your business, but when your sins endanger on my little girl, it becomes mine.
COACH BOONE
My sins? You think my sins had something to do with what happened last night? I'm sorry about what happened to your daughter, I really am, but maybe you've got a small taste of what my girl has gone through. [Yoast is silent] Welcome to my life, Yoast.
COACH BOONE
What's on your mind, son?
GERRY BERTIER
I want Ray off the team, coach.
BOONE
You know my policy.
BERTIER
I do coach, and I respect it, but I know [looks at Ray] Ray missed that block on purpose. Sometimes you just got to cut a man loose.
BOONE
You're the captain. You make that decision and you support that decision.
COACH YOAST
[to referee] You call this game fair, or I'm going to the papers. I don't care if I go down with you. But before God, I swear I'll see every last one of you thrown in jail.
REFEREE
You dig your own grave.

BERTIER
Hey fellas! Look at that fruitcake!
COACH YOAST
Gerry, just keep your mouth shut and get back on that field!
COLONEL WILLIAM BASS
Coach Boone, I'm Colonel Bass. We just got transferred here from Huntington Beach, California. This is my son, Ronnie, he's a quarterback.
COACH BOONE
[shakes Sunshine's hand] How you doin' Ronnie?
COL BASS
Coach Yoast.
COACH YOAST
[shakes Sunshine's hand as well] My pleasure.
BOONE
We're pretty set at the, uh, quarterback Colonel. But if your boy's any good, you might want to check out Wilson or Annandale.
COL BASS
Well, I met Coach Taber. He won't let blacks play on his team. The way I see it, if these boys can fight a war together, they can play football together. Now, he's a pretty good runner...
BIG JU
[laughing hysterically] Yeah, a fruitcake, huh?

[considers] Well, you're the captain. You make your decision, but you support that decision.
COACH YOAST
[to referee]You don't think I know about what's going on?
REFEREE
What are you talking about?
COACH YOAST
You call this game fair, or I'm going to the papers. I don't care if I go down with you. But before God, I swear I'll see every last one of you thrown in jail.
REFEREE
You dig your own grave.
COACH YOAST
[Smiles] All right. DEFENSE, ON ME! [to players] All right now, I don't want them to gain another yard. YOU BLITZ ALL NIGHT!! If they cross the line of scrimmage I'm gonna take every last one of you out! You make sure they remember, FOREVER, the night they played the Titans!
COACH YOAST
Well, Gerry I think this is a time for reflection, for prayer...
GERRY BERTIER
Coach, I'm hurt. I ain't dead.
COACH YOAST
[smiles] No, no you're not.
GERRY BERTIER
You know, I've been reading on activities for people in wheelchairs and such...[Smiles] They've got Olympics.
