Jimmy Dugan:
Taking a little day trip?
Dottie Hinson:
No, Bob and I are driving home. To Oregon.
Jimmy Dugan:
[long pause]
You know, I really thought you were a ballplayer.
Dottie Hinson:
Well, you were wrong.
Jimmy Dugan:
Was I?
Dottie Hinson:
Yeah. It is only a game, Jimmy. It's only a game, and, and, I don't need this. I have Bob; I don't need this. At all.
Jimmy Dugan:
I, I gave away five years at the end my career, drinking. Five years. And now there isn't anything I wouldn't give to get back any one day of it.
Dottie Hinson:
Well, we're different.
Jimmy Dugan:
This is chickenshit, Dottie, if you want to go back to Oregon and make a hundred babies, great, I'm in no position to tell anyone how to live. But sneaking out like this, quitting, you'll regret it for the rest of your life. Baseball is what gets inside you. It's what lights you up, you can't deny that.
Dottie Hinson:
It just got too hard.
Jimmy Dugan:
It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great.

You might need that.
Where'd you find this?
It was in one of those cartons.
- Needs oil.
- Who doesn't?
You ready?
- I'm not going.
- Mom!
I already got two children,
I don't need a third.
Why is it so important that I go?
Well, for one thing, it'd be nice
if you just left the room.
Besides, these are your old friends.
They probably won't even
remember me.
The "Queen of Diamonds,"
Dottie Hinson?
I just don't think this is a good idea.
Oh, come on, Mom. I mean,
you're gonna get to see Aunt Kit.
- You hardly ever see each other.
- We still won't.
She'll be traveling around
with that husband of hers.
- Frank. He has a name.
- Frank.
And he's always been
very nice to you.
He makes me nervous.
- There's a lot of reasons why I can't go.
- Mom.
Honey...
...I'm not comfortable about this.
I'm not really part of it.
It was never that important to me.
It was just something I did.
When are you gonna realize how
special it was, how much it all meant?
I...
Yeah. I know how you feel.
I really do.
But you're going.
Car.
- A car, a train, a bus. I'm tired already.
- Sleep on the plane.
- Grandma's out. Is there a fire?
- Wisenheimer.
Julie next door is watching you.
I don't want any bad reports.
- Okay. Bye, Grandma.
- Bye.
Jeffrey, come here.
No matter what your brother does,
he's littler than you are.
Give him a chance to shoot. Promise?
- Yeah.
- Okay.
Bobby, come here.
Kill him.
Come on, you'll miss your plane.
Yeah!
