Blue Stanton: Does the term cruel and unusual punishment mean *anything* to you?!
[on Alan's "singing"]
Coach Yoast: I think this is a very good time for prayer and reflexion-
Coach Boone: Gary, if you want to play on this football team, you answer me when I ask you who's your Daddy. Who's your Daddy, Gary? Who's your Daddy?
Bertier: What do you want man?
[Julius visits Gerry in the hospital.]
Bertier: Left side!
Big Ju: Why should I give a hoot about you?!
Petey Jones: Hey, hey, Lastik man what happened to you?
[after Petey makes a fumble]
Coach Boone: We will be perfect in every aspect. You drop a pass, you run a mile. You miss a blocking assignment, you run a mile. You make a fumble, i will take you and break your John Browns and then you will run a mile. Perfection.
Coach Yoast: You make sure they remember, FOREVER, the night they played the Titans!
Coach Boone: This is no democracy. It is a dictatorship. I am the law.
Coach Boone: This is where they fought the battle of Gettysburg. Fifty thousand men died right here on this field, fighting the same fight that we are still fighting among ourselves today. This green field right here, painted red, bubblin' with the blood of young boys. Smoke and hot lead pouring right through their bodies. Listen to their souls, men. I killed my brother with malice in my heart. Hatred destroyed my family. You listen, and you take a lesson from the dead. If we don't come together right now on this hallowed ground, we too will be destroyed, just like they were. I don't care if you like each other of not, but you will respect each other. And maybe . . . I don't know, maybe we'll learn to play this game like men.
Coach Boone: I'm not gonna talk to you tonight about winnin' and losin'. You're already winners 'cause you didn't kill each other up at camp.
Coach Boone: According to Greek mythology, the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe with absolute power! Well that football field out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's rule it like Titans!
Blue Stanton: Coach we need a water break, we been out here all day!
Coach Boone: Now I may be a mean cuss. But I'm the same mean cuss with everybody out there on that football field. I don't give a damn about how sensitive these kids are, especially the black kids. You ain't doin' these kids a favor by patronizing them. You crippling them; You crippling them for life.
Coach Boone: I don't scratch my head unless it itches and I don't dance unless I hear some music. I will not be intimidated. That's just the way it is.
Older Sheryl: People say that it can't work, black and white; well here we make it work, everyday. We have our disagreements, of course, but before we reach for hate, always, always, we remember the Titans.
Coach Boone: You look like a bunch of fifth grade sissies after a cat fight! You got anger, that's good you're gonna need it, you got aggression that's even better you're gonna need that, too. But any little two year old child can throw a fit! Football is about controlling that anger, harnessing that aggression into a team effort to achieve perfection!
Sheryl Yoast: Coach Boone, you did a good job up here. You ran a tough camp from what I can see.
Bertier: I love you, sugar.
Sheryl Yoast: In Virginia, high school football is a way of life, it's bigger than Christmas day. My daddy coached in Alexandria, he worked so hard my momma left him, but I stayed with coach, he needed me on that field.
Coach Boone: I'm a winner. I'm going to win.
Petey Jones: Why the clouds, Sunshine?
