Crash Davis: Relax, all right? Don't try to strike everybody out. Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls—it's more democratic.
Ebby Calvin "Nuke" LaLoosh [to himself]: What's this guy know about pitching? If he's so good how come he's been in the minors for the last ten years? If he's so good how come Annie wants me instead of him?
Crash Davis: Oh, hey, and another thing, Meat. You don't know shit, all right? If you wanna make it to the bigs, you'll listen to me. Annie only wants you so she can boss you around, got it? So relax! Let's have some fun out here! This game's fun, okay? Fun, goddamnit. And don't hold the ball so hard, OK? It's an egg. Hold it like an egg.
I've never seen a movie that looks easier than this one. Everything about it is comfortable, every performance, every line of dialogue. "Hit 'em where they ain't." And all those fellas? Delicious.
