“There’s no crying in baseball!”
League of their own (1992)During one AAGPBL game, Tom Hanks’ Dugan screams at player Evelyn Gardner for costing them the lead. Evelyn begins to cry and Dugan responds with this epic line.
This is an easy one and pretty much everyone knows the line, but that doesn’t make it any less versatile. I use it pretty much any time someone is whining or complaining. It’s also good for little kids who are crying for no reason.
Everyone loves that one from League of Their Own but my choice from that film is when the kid gets Hanks’s autograph “Avoid the clap Jimmy Dugan.”
My choice this week:
Jay: Well look who it is, the human vacuum. Olaf Oleeson: My love for you is like a truck, BERZERKER! Would you like some making fuck, BERZERKER! Jay: That’s fucking funny, man. Jay’s Lady Friend: Did he say “making fuck”?
There are almost a hundred quotes from quotes that tickle my humerus but when the girl asks, “did he say making fuck?” is just a great aside.
