Carol Vermeil: What was it that you used to say to your kids at Hillsdale High? That character is tested when you're up against it?
Dick Vermeil: Yeah.
Dick Vermeil: And that's not the problem here. He's got plenty of character.
Carol Vermeil: Who said I was talking about him?
Frank Papale: You know how I used to tell you about Van Buren scoring that touchdown back in '48?
Frank Papale: Yeah, I know.
Frank Papale: I know. That touchdown got me through 30 years at that factory. Got me through all those times your mother being sick. When I told you not to get your hopes up... didn't mean that I wasn't.
Vince Papale: Excuse me my name's spelled wrong.
Locker Room Ganitor: Nothin personal but by the time I'm through with this is it really gonna matter.
Janet Cantrell: Hey, I grew up with five brothers, but I have no problem hitting a girl.
Dick Vermeil: Thats the sound we were looking for.
Carol Vermeil: [referring to Philadelphia Eagles] These are the toughest fans there are. They threw snowballs at Santa Claus.
Tommy: Even if you're down there for an hour, you're down there.
AC Craney: People don't want heart Dick, they want wins.
[Vince makes a catch and runs all the way to the end zone in practice]
TJ Banks: What are you doing, old man? This ain't high school!
Dick Vermeil: Hey Banks! That old man just made you look bad. That's a way to finish, Papale!
TJ Banks: See anything yet, coach?
Dick Vermeil: You're not worried, are you T.J.?
TJ Banks: Should I be?
Dick Vermeil: Last year, we had one of the worst defenses in the league. Offense wasn't much better. I say everyone needs to worry. See you boys at camp.
