Jerry: I started talking with Dennis Wilburn about your renegotation.
Rod: Talking. Jerry Rice, Andre Reed, Chris Carter... I smoke all these fools. They are making the big sweet dollars. They are making the... kwan, and you are talking.
Jerry: Kwan. That's your word?

Jerry: Rod, I say this with great respect, but those players you mentioned are marquee players...
Rod: Marquee?!?

Jerry: Fine. Fine. Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine.
Rod: I'm an athlete, not an entertainer. These are the ABC's of ME. Get it? I do not dance.
