Quotes

Herb Brooks: Great moments... are born from great opportunity. And that's what you have here, tonight, boys. That's what you've earned here tonight. One game. If we played 'em ten times, they might win nine. But not this game. Not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight, we stay with them. And we shut them down because we can! Tonight, WE are the greatest hockey team in the world. You were born to be hockey players. Every one of you. And you were meant to be here tonight. This is your time. Their time is done. It's over. I'm sick and tired of hearing about what a great hockey team the Soviets have. Screw 'em. This is your time. Now go out there and take it.

Herb Brooks: 1. Again.

Herb Brooks: This is unbelievable. You guys are playing like this is some throw away game up in Rochester. Who we playing Rammer?

Mike Ramsey: Sweden.

Herb Brooks: Yeah. You're damn right Sweden! In the Olympics!

[Turns to McClanahan]

Herb Brooks: What the hell is wrong with you? Put your gear on!

[pause]

Herb Brooks: I said put your gear on!

Rob McClanahan: Doc told me I can't play.

Herb Brooks: Yeah, yeah, yeah I know. You got a bad bruise. You know what put youre street clothes on because I got no time for quitters!

Mike Eruzione: Come on Herb! No body is quitting here!

Herb Brooks: You worry about your own game. Plenty there to keep you busy.

Herb Brooks: A bruise on the leg is a hell of a long way from the heart, candy ass.

Rob McClanahan: What'd you call me?

Herb Brooks: You heard me!

Rob McClanahan: You want me to play huh? Is that what you want?

Herb Brooks: I want you to be a hockey player!

Rob McClanahan: I AM A HOCKEY PLAYER! YOU WANT ME TO PLAY ON ONE LEG? HUH? I'LL PLAY ON ONE LEG!

Herb Brooks: [walking out of the locker room with McClanahan still screaming] That'll get him going.

Craig Patrick: O yeah. I'll clean up!

[last lines]

Herb Brooks: [voiceover] Two days later the miracle was made complete. My boys defeated Finland to win the gold medal, coming from behind once again. As I watched them out there, celebrating on the ice, I realized that Patti had been right. It was a lot more than a hockey game, not only for those who watched it, but for those who played in it. I've often been asked in the years since Lake Placid what was the best moment for me. Well, it was here - the sight of 20 young men of such differing backgrounds now standing as one. Young men willing to sacrifice so much of themselves all for an unknown. A few years later, the U.S. began using professional athletes at the Games - Dream Teams. I always found that term ironic because now that we have Dream Teams, we seldom ever get to dream. But on one weekend, as America and the world watched, a group of remarkable young men gave the nation what it needed most - a chance, for one night, not only to dream, but a chance, once again, to believe.

Herb Brooks: All-star teams fail because they rely solely on the individual's talent. The Soviets win because they take that talent and use it inside a system that's designed for the betterment of the team. My goal is to beat 'em at their own game.

Lou Nanne: Beat the best team in the world? Gold medalists in '64, '68, '72, '76? Pretty lofty goal, Herb.

Herb Brooks: Well, Lou, that's why I want to pursue it.

Herb Brooks: Red line, back. Blue line, back. Far blue line, back. Far red line, back. And you have 45 seconds to do it. Get used to this drill. You'll be doing it *a lot*. Why? Because the legs feed the wolf, gentlemen. I can't promise you we'll be the best team at Lake Placid next February. But we will be the best conditioned. That I can promise you.

Rob McClanahan: [from across the room] Hey Rizzo! What's going on?

Mike Eruzione: Mac!

[turns to O.C]

Mike Eruzione: Easy big guy.

Jack O'Callahan: [referring to Eruzione and Silk] I don't know how the two of you can sit in the same room with that clown.

Mike Eruzione: Let it go. It's over. Let it go.

Cox: What's going on here?

Dave Silk: O.C's got a little unfinished business over there.

Jack O'Callahan: Not for long I don't.

Mike Eruzione: Hey what did I tell you man?

Cox: McClanahan? You're not still going on about the 76 playoffs are you? O come on O.C. that was like three years ago!

Jack O'Callahan: YOu know what Coxy let me ask you a question. Why'd you wanna play college hockey?

Cox: Isn't it obvious? For the girls!

Jack O'Callahan: I'm serious Coxy. Why'd you wanna play college hockey?

Cox: Cause I love to play hockey. I wanna go to the NHL just like everyone does.

Jack O'Callahan: Well I wanted to win a national championship. That panzey over there cheap shots me. I get tossed out of the game. He steals the ring right off my finger! How would you feel?

Mike Eruzione: Everyone was throwin cheap shots that night.

Jack O'Callahan: You know Rizzo. It's funny you say that. Cause I was just wondering what side you're on!

Mike Eruzione: I'm on your side!

Jack O'Callahan: You know it really seems that way.

Doc: Well, of course.

Craig Patrick: You've worked with Herb for a long time, right?

Doc: I've known Herb for quite some time.

Craig Patrick: So let me ask you, does he always treat his players like this?

Doc: No... no, this I have never seen. No - but Craig, Herb has a reason for everything he does.

Craig Patrick: Well, he's gonna end up with 20 players who hate his guts.

Doc: Well, maybe if they hate him they won't have time to hate each other.

Herb Brooks: Come on in boys.

John 'Bah' Harrington: You wanted to see us, Coach.

Herb Brooks: I'm thinking about keeping the three of you together on the same line. Everyone ok with that?

Buzz Schneider: Yeah.

John 'Bah' Harrington: Sure.

Mark Pavelich: Sure.

Herb Brooks: How 'bout you, Buzzy? You think this works with Bah and Pav here?

Buzz Schneider: Yeah. It's going good. We're moving the puck well. It's just a little different plaing with them, you know?

John 'Bah' Harrington: Yeah. I don't know how to explain it but we seem to find eachother on the ice and make things happen.

Mark Pavelich: Yeah. Pass, shoot, score.

John 'Bah' Harrington: Pass, shoot...

Buzz Schneider: And score.

Jim Craig: Yeah, umm... it's nothing against you or anything. I just don't see what it has to do with stopping the puck.

Herb Brooks: [to Patti on the phone] We were taxiing out to the runway, right? And we, you know, we kind of hit a moose. No, the moose is fine, but we gotta make sure that the plane's all right, so some of the boys are pushing it back so these guys can take a look at it. Patti, the moose is *okay*. He ran off. I saw it.

Herb Brooks: [after the fight between O' Callahan and McClanahan breaks up] Well, how 'bout it boys? Look like hockey to you? Looks more like a couple monkeys trying to hump a football to me, I don't know. What do you think Craig?

Craig Patrick: [pause] Yeah.

Herb Brooks: You wanna settle old scores, you're on the wrong team. We move forward starting right now. We start becoming a team RIGHT NOW! Skating. Passing. Flow. And creativity. That is what this team is all about, gentlemen. NOT old rivalries. So, why don't we start with some introductions. You know, get to know each other a little bit. Where you from. Who you are. Go ahead.

[looks at McClanahan]

Rob McClanahan: [rolls his eyes] Rob McClanahan. St. Paul Minnesota.

Herb Brooks: Who do you play for?

Herb Brooks: The tough part will be getting it down to twenty before the opening ceremonies.

Craig Patrick: This is the final roster? You're kidding me, right? This is our first day, Herb. We've got a week of this. What about the advisory staff? Aren't they supposed to have a say in this?

Herb Brooks: Not technically.

Craig Patrick: You're missing some of the best players.

Herb Brooks: I'm not looking for the best players, Craig. I'm looking for the right ones.

Craig Patrick: You have Jim Craig to back up Janisack?

Herb Brooks: Other way around.

Craig Patrick: Other way around? I'm sorry didn't Janisack just win you a national championship?

Herb Brooks: Janny is a solid goal tender, but we're not playing for the national championship here, Craig.

Craig Patrick: You know people I speak to say that Craig's game has been off since his mom died.

Herb Brooks: They ever see him when his game's on?

Jim Craig: No... you know what I understand, Herb? I don't understand you, nobody on this team understands you. You, with your ridiculous sayings, and your drills, and those stupid psychology tests that you had everybody take-

[cut off by Herb]

Herb Brooks: Everybody?

[Starts jogging up the stairs, while Jimmy yells after him]

Jim Craig: What, so this is what this is all about? Because I didn't take your test? Fine, you want me to take your test, I'll take your test. Is that what you want?

Herb Brooks: No. I wanna see the kid in the net who wouldn't take the test.

Jack O'Callahan: [O.C. is standing in the middle of the ice on crutches. Brooks walks onto the ice and stands next to him] Doc said, "No," right?

Herb Brooks: He said you *might* be able to go in a week, maybe two.

Jack O'Callahan: What if it's two?

Herb Brooks: That puts me in a tight spot, doesn't it? Jack, I've got twenty guys to think about here, and they're all looking at me to do what's best for this team.

Jack O'Callahan: I understand, coach.

Herb Brooks: Which is why I'm hanging onto you.

Jack O'Callahan: [turns to face him] I swear to God, Herb, if you're not being serious right now...

Herb Brooks: I'm only saying this if you promise right now you won't even think about asking me to play until I tell you.

Jack O'Callahan: I won't. I-I mean, I will, I promise, coach.

Herb Brooks: Cause if you do, Jack, I'll stick your ass on an airplane, and you're headed back to Boston.

[O.C. smiles]

Herb Brooks: All right, Doc's waiting for you.

Jack O'Callahan: [smiling] Thank you, Herb.

[hobbles away on crutches, stops and raises crutches in the air, screaming]

Herb Brooks: And you don't think he's been playing for the last six months?

Mike Eruzione: Not with us he hasn't!

Herb Brooks: So?

Mike Eruzione: So there's a difference!

Herb Brooks: Like hell there is! All I know is that that kid can flat out play!

Jack O'Callahan: What and we can't?

Herb Brooks: He's got great vision on the ice...

Rob McClanahan: That's not the point!

Herb Brooks: I'll tell ya what else he's got. He's got the attitude I want on and off the ice. So somebody here better tell me why I shouldn't be giving him a hell of a look!

Jack O'Callahan: What's your point?

Jim Craig: My point, Jack is that one week later Herb's home on his couch with his old man watching his team win the gold medal. Come that close and get nothing. He'll do whatever it takes. That's my point.
