Branch Rickey, President Brooklyn Dodgers: We're tackling something big here, Jackie. If we fail, no one will try it again for twenty years. But if we succeed...
Clyde Sukeforth, Dodger Scout: If we succeed, Brooklyn will win a pennant.
Branch Rickey, President Brooklyn Dodgers: Yes, that too. But we're dealing with rights here. The right of any American to play baseball, the American game. You think he's our boy, Clyde?
Clyde Sukeforth, Dodger Scout: Well, he can run, he can hit, and he can field.
Branch Rickey, President Brooklyn Dodgers: But can he take it?
Clyde Sukeforth, Dodger Scout: That I don't know.
Branch Rickey, President Brooklyn Dodgers: What do you think, Jackie?
Jackie Robinson: Well, I can try.
Branch Rickey, President Brooklyn Dodgers: Think you've got guts enough to play the game no matter what happens? They'll shout insults at you. They'll come into you spikes first. They'll throw at your head.
Jackie Robinson: They've been throwing at my head for a long time, Mr. Rickey.
