    30 At The Dairy

    Ernie Capadino: Ow. Doesn't that hurt them?
    Dottie Hinson: Doesn't seem to.
    Ernie Capadino: Well, it would bruise the hell out of me.
    Dottie Hinson: Can I help you with something?
    Ernie Capadino: I'm Ernie Capadino. I'm a baseball scout. I saw you playing today. Not bad, not bad. You ever heard of Walter Harvey, makes Harvey bars - you know, the candy?
    Dottie Hinson: Yeah. We feed them to the cows when they're constipated.
    Ernie Capadino: That's the guy. He's starting a girls' baseball league, so he can make a buck while the boys are overseas. Wanna play?
    Dottie Hinson: Huh?
    Ernie Capadino: Nice retort. Tryouts are in Chicago. It's a real league, professional.
    Kit Keller: Professional - baseball?
    Ernie Capadino: Mmm-hmm. They'll pay you 75 dollars a week.
    Kit Keller: We only make 30 at the dairy.
    Ernie Capadino: Well then, this would be more, wouldn't it?

          No Crying

          Jimmy: Evelyn, could you come here for a second? Which team do you play for?
          Evelyn: Well, I'm a Peach.
          Jimmy: Well I was just wonderin', 'cause I couldn't figure out why, you throw home when we got a two-run lead! You let the tying run get to second, and we lost the lead because of you. You start using your head. That's the lump that's three feet above your ass.
          [Evelyn starts crying]
          Jimmy: Are you crying? Are you crying? Are you crying?! There's no crying! There's no crying in baseball!
          Doris: Why don't you leave her alone, Jimmy?
          Jimmy: Oh, you zip it, Doris! Rogers Hornsby was my manager and he called me a talking pile of pig shit! And that was when my parents drove all the way down from Michigan to see me play the game! And did I cry?

          Jimmy: No! And do you know why?
          Evelyn: No.
