Ernie Capadino quotes

[dropping off Dottie and Kit at the tryouts] Hey cowgirls, see the grass? Don't eat it.

[to Marla Hooch, when they are reluctant to board a train] Are you coming? See, how it works is, the train moves, not the station.

[to a salesman] You know, if I had your job, I'd kill myself.

[while being surrounded by chickens] Get these wild animals away from me. Haven't you ever heard of a leash?

What happened? Did you promise the cows you'd write?

Jimmy Dugan: Evelyn, could you come here for a second? Which team do you play for? Evelyn Gardner: Well, I'm a Peach. Jimmy: Well I was just wonderin' why you would throw home when we got a two-run lead. You let the tying run get on second base and we lost the lead because of you. Start using your head. That's the lump that's three feet above your ass. [Evelyn starts to cry.] Jimmy: Are you crying? Are you crying? Are you crying? There's no crying! There's no crying in baseball! Doris Murphy: Why don't you give her a break, Jimmy? Jimmy: Oh, zip it, Doris! Rogers Hornsby was my manager and he called me a talking pile of pig shit - and that was when my parents drove all the way down from Michigan to see me play the game! And did I cry? Evelyn: (inbetween sobs) No, no, no ... Jimmy: Yeah, no! And do you know why? Evelyn: No ... Jimmy: Because there's no crying in baseball. There's no crying in baseball--no crying!
