Tin Cup

Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "Okay, so how do I do it? Therapy, I mean, I mean, wh-- how do I start doing it?"
Dr. Molly Griswold: "Ooo-kay, Roy. Well, in parlance you might understand, just kick back and let the big dog eat."
Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "Suppose there's this guy, and he's standing on the shore of a big wide river, and the... river's full of all manner of disaster, you know, piranhas, alligators, eddies, currents, shit like that... nobody'll even go down there to dip a toe. And on the other side of the river's a million bucks, and on this side of the river... is a rowboat."
Dr. Molly Griswold: "Mm-hmm?"
Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "I guess my question's this: What would possess the guy standing on the shore to swim for it?"
Dr. Molly Griswold: "He is an idiot."
Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "No, see, he's a helluva swimmer. His problem's more like why does he always have to... rise to the challenge?"
Dr. Molly Griswold: "He is a juvenile idiot."
Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "You don't understand what I mean by the river."
Dr. Molly Griswold: "Roy, we're talking about you, and what you like to call your inner demons -- that human frailty you like to blather about -- not some mythopoetic metaphor you come up with in a... feeble and transparent effort to do yourself credit."
Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "You mean you're going to make me feel lousy?"
Dr. Molly Griswold: "No."
Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "I came here to feel better. I mean, what kind of therapy is..."
Dr. Molly Griswold: "Roy, Roy, Roy, you don't have any inner demons. What you have is inner crapola, inner debris... garbage... loose wires, a few... [laughs] horseshit in staggering amounts."

[In preparation to shoot over the water hazard at hole 18 at the US Open.]
Roy: "This is for Venturi who thinks I should lay up."
Romeo: "What does he know? He only won this tournament before you were born."

Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "Sex and golf are the two things you can enjoy even if you're not good at them."

Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "Does my inner child need a spanking?"

[Asking Romeo to be his caddy again instead of Earl]
Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "Look, I love Earl, okay, but... I need you."
Romeo Posar: "You don't love me?"
Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "Yeah, yeah, I-I love you too, goddammit."
Romeo Posar: "Well, as much as Earl?"
Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "I don't know! I mean, when I was with Earl, I was thinking of you... Yes, uh, as much as Earl. More than Earl. More than Earl."
Romeo Posar: "Am I special?"
Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy: "Well, if you can remove the sexual overtones and add a golf theme, then Romeo, I am your Juliet."
