If you build it, he will come.
This was ranked #39 of the 100 most memorable American movie quotations of all time in a poll by the American Film Institute.
Ease his pain.
Go the distance.
It's okay, honey. I... I was just talking to the cornfield.
I need all the karma I can get right now.
That's my corn out there! You guys are guests in my corn!
We got tired of just practicing. We decided to get some more players so we could have real games. I hope you don't mind.
Ty Cobb wanted to play...but none of us could stand the son-of-a-bitch when we were alive, so we told him to stick it!
Hey, rookie ó you were good.
We got a learning disability here?
Oh, my God, you're from the Sixties! [He sprays a flit-gun at Ray Kinsella.] Out! Back to the Sixties! Get back! There's no place for you here in the future! Get back while you still can!
You're seeing a whole team of psychiatrists, aren't you?
Peace, love, dope! Now get the hell out of here!
I'm gonna beat you with this crowbar until you go away.
I was the East Coast distributor of 'involved'. I ate it, drank it, and breathed it. Then they killed Martin, Bobby, and they elected Tricky Dick twice, and people like you must think I'm miserable because I'm not involved anymore. Well, I've got news for you. I spent all my misery years ago. I have no more pain for anything. I gave at the office.
Now I know what everybody's purpose here is... except mine.
Ray. People will come, Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
It was like coming this close to your dreams... and then watch them brush past you like strangers in a crowd.
Well, you know I... I never got to bat in the major leagues. I would have liked to have had that chance. Just once. To stare down a big league pitcher. To stare him down, and just as he goes into his windup, wink. Make him think you know something he doesn't. That's what I wish for. Chance to squint at a sky so blue that it hurts your eyes just to look at it. To feel the tingling in your arm as you connect with the ball. To run the bases ó stretch a double into a triple, and flop face-first into third, wrap your arms around the bag. That's my wish, Ray Kinsella. That's my wish. And is there enough magic out there in the moonlight to make this dream come true?
You know we just don't recognize the most significant moments of our lives while they're happening. Back then I thought, well, there'll be other days. I didn't realize that that was the only day.
This is my most special place in all the world. Once a place touches you like that, the wind never blows so cold again.
If I'd only gotten to be a doctor for five minutes... now that would have been a tragedy.
I'd best be getting home. Alicia will think I've got a girlfriend.
