Brian's Song (1971) (TV)
Gale Sayers: Oh, babe, you won't believe it. Brian *tried* to call me a nigger!

Gale Sayers: I love Brian Piccolo. And tonight, when you hit your knees, please ask God to love him.

Gale Sayers: [accepting the George S. Halas award] I'd like to tell you about a guy I know, a friend of mine. His name is Brian Piccolo. And he has the heart of a giant, and that rare form of courage that allows him to kid himself and his opponent, cancer. He has a mental attitude that makes me proud to have a friend who spells out the world 'courage,' 24 hours a day, every day of his life. Now you honor me by giving me this award. But I say to you here now Brian Piccolo is the man who deserves the George S. Halas award. It is mine tonight... and Brian Piccolo's tomorrow.
