    Ranch Wilder: [on the radio] With another example of his infamous temper, manager George Knox calls time out. He is going to have a word with his pitcher, Frank Gates.
    Roger: I don't think it's going to be a happy word.
    Ranch: And it looks like Knox is going to take Gates out. Gates doesn't look too, pleased about this.
    [on the field]
    George Knox: Give me the ball.
    Frank Gates: It ain't my fault, you need a new outfield.
    George Knox: [louder] You're out of here, GIVE ME THE BALL!!!
    Frank Gates: Do you want the ball? Well, here you go. [starts to hand it over] GO GET IT! [throws it aside and starts to hand his glove over] Do you want my glove? WELL, GO GET IT. [throws it as well].
    Ranch Wilder: [on the radio] Gates has thrown his ball and glove into the stands!

  • Mapel: [singing while taking off his baseball team jersey] We do it all summer, and it's a big bummer. No matter who we play, we give the game away. 'Cause we can't win. That would be a sin. We even lose the games before they begin--
    George Knox: SAVE IT, MAPEL!
    [after speaking to Mapel who accidentally bumps his back on the pole in a surprised staring look at his manager, the whole team stares at George Knox as he walks over to the snack table and knocks it over with both of his hands]
    Players: Ohh!
    Triscuitt Messmer: Bummer.
    George Knox: One more loss! One more loss which could've been a win! Do you call yourselves "professionals"! I have never ever seen a worst group of 25 players! You don't think as a team, you don't play as a team, you don't even lose as a team! You all got your heads so far up your butts, you can't even see the light of day! One more loss and I'll [picks up chair]... and I'll do this [throws it at a baseball bat rack and the baseball bats were flying over the whole locker room]...to each and every one of you!!

    George Knox: I want you... here in uniform at 9 tomorrow! We're going back to work on fundamentals!!
    Norton: Fundamentals!? In the middle of the season!?
    Whitt Bass: [still with a blank look] I thought the game had started at 1?
    George Knox: It does start at 1, and you're a jackass!
    Whitt Bass: No, I'm a pitcher. [after speaking to George Knox who angrily leaves the locker room while making some angry groaning and moaning, grunting sounds to himself while putting both of his hands above his head]
