The Sandlot (1993)
Benny Rodriguez: Anyone who wants to be a can't-hack-it pantywaist who wears their mama's bra, raise your hand.

Benny Rodriguez: Man, this is baseball. You gotta stop thinking. Just have fun. I mean, if you were having fun you would've caught that ball. You ever have a paper route?
Smalls: I helped a guy once.
Benny Rodriguez: Okay, well chuck it like you throw paper. When your arm gets here, just let go. Just let go, it's that easy.
[starts to jog away]
Smalls: How do I catch it.
Benny Rodriguez: Just stand out there and stick your glove out in the air. I'll take care of it.

Benny Rodriguez: [about Smalls' hat] Got a fireplace?
Scotty Smalls: Yeah.
Benny Rodriguez: Throw that in there, man.

Sandlot Kids: [after Wendy Peffercorn pulls Squints from the pool] Squints! Come on Squints!
Ham Porter: Come on Squints. Squints!
Timmy: Come on, Squints, come on!
Scotty Smalls: [shouts] Come on, Squints. You can do it! Pull through, bud!
Benny Rodriguez: Come on, man, come on!
Yeah Yeah: Yeah yeah, he looks pretty crappy.
Tommy: Squints! Come on man!
Bertram: My God, he looks like a dead fish.
Sandlot Kids: [Squints opens his eyes and smiles] *What*?
Wendy Peffercorn: [Squints kisses Wendy]
[muffled scream]
Wendy Peffercorn: *Ugh!* *Little pervert!*
Timmy: Aww, man, he's in deep *shit!*

Ham Porter: Benny, why'd you bring that kid?
Benny Rodriguez: Because he makes nine of us.
Yeah Yeah: Yeah yeah, so does my sister, but I didn't bring her along!

Smalls: I was gonna put the ball back.
Squints: But it was signed by Babe Ruth!
Smalls: Yeah, you keep telling me that! Who is she?

Kenny: The sultan of swat!
Bertram: The king of crash!
Timmy: The colossus of clout!
Tommy: The colossus of clout!
All: BABE RUTH!

Smalls: Oh my god! You mean that's the same guy?
All: YES!
Benny Rodriguez: Smalls, Babe Ruth is the greatest baseball player that ever lived. People say he was less than a god but more than a man. You know, like Hercules or something. That ball you just aced to The Beast is worth, well, more than your whole life.
Smalls: [Falls to the ground and clutches his stomach, groaning] I don't feel so good.
All: [Fanning Scott with their caps] Give him air, give him air.

Mr. Mertle: So's this one... with the rest of the 1927 Yankees.

Benny Rodriguez: Man, you think too much! I bet you get straight A's and shit!
Scotty Smalls: No, I got a B once. Well, actually it was an A minus but it should have been a B.
Benny Rodriguez: Man, this is baseball, you gotta stop thinking! Just have fun. If you were having fun, you would have caught that ball!

Sandlot Kids: What?
Ham Porter: [takes cigar out of mouth] I'm the Great Bambino.
Sandlot Kids: Oh!
Smalls: Who's that?
Smalls: [narrating] I had no idea what they were talking about.
Ham Porter: What did he say?
Bertram: What? Were you born in a barn, man?
Yeah Yeah: Yeah yeah, what planet are you from?
Smalls: [narrating] But there was no *way* I could let them know.
Squints: You've never heard of the sultan of swat?
