Copy store clerk: That's how you become great, man. Hang your balls out there!


Two nights later in Miami at our corporate conference, a breakthrough. Breakdown? Breakthrough. It was the oddest, most unexpected thing. I began writing what they call a Mission Statement for my company. You know -- a Mission Statement -- a suggestion for the future. What started out as one page became twenty-five. Suddenly I was my father's son. I was remembering the simple pleasures of this job, how I ended up here out of law school, the way a stadium sounds when one of my players performs well on the field... And suddenly it was all pretty clear. The answer was fewer clients. Caring for them, caring for ourselves, and the games too. Starting our lives, really. Hey, I'll be the first to admit it. What I was writing was somewhat "touchy feely." I didn't care. I had lost the ability to bullshit. It was the me I'd always wanted to be.

Jan: I love men. I respect men. But that doesn't change the fact that most of them belong in cages.

Alice: What's the current definition of stalking?
Woman #1: Coming over uninvited.
Jan: So Romeo under the trellis... was a stalker.

Laurel: You seem just the way I pictured you. I'm her disapproving sister Laurel.
Jerry: Honesty. Thank you.

Jerry Maguire. My agent. You are my ambassador of kwan!

Jerry: The ****in zoo is closed, Ray.
Ray: You said "****."

You are hanging on by a very thin thread and I dig that about you!

Anyone else would have left you by now, but I'm sticking with you. And if I have to ride your ass like Zorro, you're gonna show me the money. We are together on this! We are going to be one! Shit!

There's genius everywhere, but until they turn pro, it's like popcorn in the pan. Some pop... some don't.

[to Dorothy] Okay. Lil' speech before I go. Do. Not. Worry. About. Your. Job. Our company is in good shape. You and your son... we... are just fine. You still have a job. I want you to feel confident! In. Me. And I have a problem with people who talk about themselves in the third person, but let me tell you something about Jerry Maguire. Come after me and you will lose I am a survivor! Do not underestimate Jerry Maguire! I've got wits! I've got the instincts of a panther!

I'm still sort of moved by your "My word is stronger than oak" thing.

Ray: What's wrong, mom?
Dorothy: First class is what's wrong. It used to be a better meal. Now it's a better life.

[to Jerry] I got a shelf life of ten years, tops. My next contract's gotta bring me the dollars that'll last me and mine a long time. Shit, I'm out of this sport in 5 years. What's my family gonna live on? Huh? What you get me. So I don't want to hear about your shit.

I will not rest until I have you holding a Coke, wearing your own shoe, playing a Sega game featuring you, while singing your own song in a new commercial, starring you, broadcast during the Superbowl, in a game that you are winning, and I will not sleep until that happens. I'll give you fifteen minutes to call me back.
