Quotes from the Movie Friday Night Lights

Stop reading the news clippings. You're small and you're going to be smaller every week. There ain't going to be no growth spurt between now and the first game. You're going to use your minds! You're going to play with your heart! And that is what you're going to use to win the State Championship.

Coach Gary Gaines

I've seen you fight. I've seen you not quit. Can you give me a great effort and just a little bit more. Can you be perfect?

Coach Gary Gaines

Gentlemen, the hopes and dreams of an entire town are riding on your shoulders. You may never matter again in your life as much as you do right now.

Coach Gary Gaines

I want you to take a moment, and I want you to look each other in the eyes. I want you to put each other in your hearts forever because forever is about to happen here in just a few minutes. I want you to close your eyes, and I want you to think about Boobie Miles, who is your brother. And he would die to be out there in that field with you tonight. And I want you to put that in your hearts. Boys my heart is full. My heart is full.

Coach Gary Gaines

Being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there. It's not about winning. It's about you and your relationship with yourself, your family and your friends. Being perfect is about being able to look your friends in the eye and know that you didnt let them down because you told them the truth. And that truth is you did everything you could. There wasnt one more thing you could've done. Can you live in that moment as best you can, with clear eyes, and love in your heart, with joy in your heart? If you can do that gentleman - you're perfect!

Coach Gary Gaines

So how is it out there?

Coach Gary Gaines

You said that already.

Coach Gary Gaines

Y'all wanna win? Put Boobie in.

Boobie Miles

What am I gonna do if I can't play football? I'm not good at nothin'!

Boobie Miles

What's wrong with y'all? Y'all are playin' like some little girls! Y'all act like you never played football before! These guys are nothin'! They bleed just like we do, and sweat just like we do. They went through two-a-days. We went through two-a-days in 110 degree heat. I want you to hit everything that move! If the ref gets in your way, you hit him! They're cheatin' us too! They're against us too. This is our team. This is us! Let's go right now! Let's get it off now and let's go!

Ivory Christian

You just-you ain't gettin' it. You don't understand. This is the only thing you're ever gonna have. Forever, it carries you forever. It's an ugly fact of life. Donnie, hell. It's the only fact of life. You got one year, one stinkin' year to make yourself some memories, son. That's all. It's gone after that. And I'll be damned if you're not gonna miss it.

Charles Billingsley

Where's your girlfriend at, Water Bug?

Boobie Miles

You mean to say you have no girlfriend, Water Bug?

Boobie Miles

You want to know why you have no girlfriend, Water Bug?

Boobie Miles

You got the wrong shoes, man!

Boobie Miles
