William Gates: When I had some real problems, I couldn't go to none of them about it. Y'know, I was having some problems with Catherine's family and my family, and I said, 'Coach Pingatore, their family been getting on me about I'm not doing this, and I'm not doing that.'

Himself - Film Director: You have to realize... that nobody cares about you. You're black. You're a young male. All you're supposed to do is deal drugs and mug women. The only reason why you're here... you can make their team win. If their team wins, these schools get a lot of money. This whole thing is revolving around money.
