Happy Gilmore (1996) Poster


Adam Sandler: Happy Gilmore



  • Shooter McGavin : [after buying grandma's house in an auction]  You're in big trouble though, pal. I eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast!

    Happy Gilmore : [laughing]  You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?

    Shooter McGavin : [long pause]  No!

  • Happy Gilmore : [to his golf ball]  You little son of a bitch ball! Why you don't you just go HOME? That's your HOME! Are you too good for your HOME? ANSWER ME! SUCK MY WHITE ASS, BALL!

  • Gary Potter : Oh yeah. Lotta pressure. You gotta rise above it. You gotta harness in the good energy, block out the bad. Harness. Energy. Block. Bad. Feel the flow Happy. Feel it. It's circular. It's like a carousel. You pay the quarter, you get on the horse, it goes up and down, and AROUND. It's circular. Circle, with the music, the flow. All good things.

    Happy Gilmore : Yeah, alright. Good to meet you.

    Happy Gilmore : [to himself]  Psycho.

  • Shooter McGavin : [in a bar]  Just stay out of my way... or you'll pay! LISTEN to what I say!

    Happy Gilmore : Hey, why don't I just go eat some hay, make things out of clay, lay by the bay? I just may! What'd ya say?

  • Grandma : [referring to Terry, while sitting on her bed inside her room in the nursing home]  How's that nice girlfriend of yours?

    Happy Gilmore : Oh, she got hit by a car. She's dead.

  • Virginia : [while walking on the golf course]  What's this I hear about you breaking a rake and throwing it in the woods?

    Happy Gilmore : What? I didn't *break* it, I was just testing its durability, and then I *placed* it in the woods because it's made of wood and I just thought he should be with his family.

  • Happy Gilmore : [intentionally antagonizing Shooter]  Somebody's closer!

  • Happy Gilmore : [voice over narration]  During high school, I played junior hockey and still hold two league records: most time spent in the penalty box; and I was the only guy to ever take off his skate and try to stab somebody.

  • Doctor : Well, You're a little banged up but no serious injuries. Just keep off your feet for a few days.

    Happy Gilmore : [after been hit by a Volkswagen driven by Donald]  To hell with that. I gotta finish up.

    Doctor : Fine. Do whatever you like. What would I know? I'm just a Doctor.

  • Happy Gilmore : [to Shooter]  Happy learned how to putt! Uh-oh!

  • [Happy sinks an amazing putt] 

    Happy Gilmore : [intentionally antagonizing Shooter]  Did that go in? I wasn't watching, did it go in? I didn't see it, could you tell me if it went in?

  • Happy Gilmore : [Having a bad day of golfing due to a member of the crowd]  That guy's driving me *crazy*!

    Bob Barker : You know what's driving *me* crazy? You, not getting the ball in the hole.

    Happy Gilmore : Don't push me, Bob! Now's not the time.

    [Happy hits the ball, which hits a man standing on a boat, who then falls into the water] 

    Bob Barker : This guy sucks!

    Announcer : We haven't seen Happy Gilmore play *this* badly since his first day on tour. He and Bob Barker are now dead-last.

    Bob Barker : I can't *believe* you're a professional golfer! I think you should be working at the snack bar.

    Happy Gilmore : [Angrily, with teeth clenched]  You better relax, Bob.

    Bob Barker : There is *no* way that you could have been as bad at hockey as you are at golf!

    Happy Gilmore : Alright, let's go!

    [Happy throws down his club and punches Bob in the face, who falls to the ground] 

    Happy Gilmore : You like that, old man? You want a piece of me?

    Bob Barker : [Shaking his head as he gets up]  I don't want a *piece* of you, I want the *whole thing*!

    [Punches Happy in the gut, then proceeds to punch him in the face ten times, sending Happy falling into a pond] 

    Happy Gilmore : [Happy gets out]  Now you're gonna get it, Bobby!

    [Happy grabs his club and swings at Bob, who blocks, punches Happy in the face, then throws him to the ground. Happy tackles Bob, resulting in both of them rolling down a hill. At the bottom, Happy headbutts Bob] 

    Happy Gilmore : The price is *wrong*, bitch!

    Bob Barker : [Bob grabs Happy's throat, opens his eyes with a menacing look, stands up, punches Happy in the gut twice, and once in the face before Happy falls down again]  I think you've had enough.

    [Starts to walk away, but notices Happy start to stand up again] 

    Bob Barker : No?

    [Kicks Happy in the face] 

    Bob Barker : [while walking away]  *Now* you've had enough... bitch.

  • Virginia : [stopping Happy from fighting Shooter]  Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey! You want to beat him? Beat him on the course.

    Happy Gilmore : That's right, I'm gonna beat your ass on the course!

    Shooter McGavin : Yeah, right. And Grizzly Adams had a beard.

    Lee Trevino : Grizzly Adams *did* have a beard.

  • Happy Gilmore : [apologizing to Chubbs, attempting to persuade him to be his coach for his match against Shooter]  I'm stupid. You're smart. I was wrong. You were right. You're the best. I'm the worst. You're very good-looking. I'm not attractive.

  • Happy Gilmore : [to the clown hole at the mini-golf course after it spits out his ball]  You're gonna die, clown!

    [breaks its nose off with his golf club] 

  • [to Bob Barker after Donald insults Happy] 

    Happy Gilmore : I'd love to punch that guy in the face right now. But I can't, you know, because I'd get in trouble. I bet you get a lot of that on "Let's Make A Deal."

    Bob Barker : It's "The Price Is Right," Happy.

    Happy Gilmore : [grimaces in embarrassment]  Oh, yeah. Sorry.

    Bob Barker : It happens. Let's play some golf.

    Happy Gilmore : Okay.

  • Mover : I'll tell you what, you hit a ball past my ball, and we'll go straight back to work so you can watch your precious hockey game.

    Happy Gilmore : Give me the stupid club.

    [approaches the ball on the tee] 

    Happy Gilmore : [judging the club]  Look at this stupid thing.

    Mover : This is going to be hilarious. I mean, look how he's standing.

    Happy Gilmore : [sarcastically]  Yeah you like that?

    [Happy hits the ball, hits the window to the house at the end of the street] 

    Mover : Holy shit.

    Happy Gilmore : Go back to work.

    Mover : That house is like four hundred yards away.

    Happy Gilmore : Is that good?

    Mover : That's unbelieveable.

    Mover : Beginner's luck. Twenty bucks says you can't do it again.

    Happy Gilmore : Bring it on.

    [Happy hits the ball in the same direction] 

    Distant neighbor : You boys are going to pay for that! *clunk* AHH!

    Mover : You hit that guy.

    Happy Gilmore : He shouldn't have been standing there.

    Mover : One more time, double or nothing.

    Happy Gilmore : You better pay up.

    [Happy hits the ball, ball hits a woman on the roof of the same house, falls off] 

    Happy Gilmore : Oops. All right, maybe we should get back inside.

  • Happy Gilmore : [to Virginia while on the golf course after being tricked by Shooter]  Hey, my girlfriend is dead, you know. She fell off a cliff and died on impact.

  • Virginia : [while on an ice rink]  I thought we were going to be just friends.

    Happy Gilmore : What? Friends listen to "Endless Love" in the dark.

  • Terry : [over the apartment intercom]  All you ever talk about is becoming a pro hockey player, but there's a problem: you're not any good.

    Happy Gilmore : I am good. You know what, you're a lousy kindergarten teacher. I've seen those finger-paintings you bring home and they SUCK.

  • Chubbs : [standing outside the batting cage]  Back in 1965, Sports Illustrated said I was going to be the next Arnold Palmer.

    Happy Gilmore : Yeah? What happened?

    Chubbs : They wouldn't let me play on the Pro Tour anymore.

    Happy Gilmore : Ah, I'm sorry. Because you're black?

    Chubbs : Hell no! Damned alligator BIT my hand off!

    [Shows Happy his wooden hand] 

    Happy Gilmore : OH MY GOD!

    Chubbs : Yeah. tournament down in Florida. I hooked my ball in the rough down by the lake. Damned alligator just POPPED up, cut me down on my prime. He got me, but I tore one of that bastard's eyes out though. Look at that.

    [Shows Happy a small glass jar with an eyeball in it] 

    Happy Gilmore : You're pretty sick, Chubbs.

  • Happy Gilmore : Where are you going with those clubs, punk?

    [pushes young caddy to the ground] 

    Happy's Waterbury Caddy : Mr. Gilmore, I'm your caddy!

    Happy Gilmore : Oh, I'm sorry about that. Let me carry these, alright, they were my grandfather's, they're pretty old.

    Happy's Waterbury Caddy : Well, what should I do then?

    Happy Gilmore : I don't know. Why don't you just watch me, and make sure I don't do anything stupid. Okay?

    Starter #1 : Mr. Gilmore, Mr. Lafferty will be teeing off now.

    Happy Gilmore : Alright, good luck, buddy.

    Happy's Waterbury Caddy : Get out the way.

    [crowd laughs] 

    Happy Gilmore : [to caddy]  Where were you on that one, dipshit?

  • Chubbs : What are you doing?

    Happy Gilmore : [while getting pelted with baseballs inside the batting cage]  364 days until next year's hockey tryouts, I have to toughen up.

  • Happy Gilmore : That's my puck, baby, don't you ever touch my puck.

  • [in slow motion, Happy hits a ball a great distance. Soon after, the ball bounces on a green and rolls into the hole, making a hole in one. The crowd goes wild] 

    Happy Gilmore : [shouts]  He shoots, he scores!

    [Happy turns to Chubbs] 

    Happy Gilmore : Oh, man. That was so much easier than putting. I should just try to get the ball in one shot every time.

    Chubbs : Good plan.

    [Chubbs chuckles as he pats Happy with his wooden hand. The two of them walk away] 

    Virginia : [to Shooter]  Did you see that?

    Shooter McGavin : Yes. Nice shot.

    Virginia : He just got a Hole-in-One on a *par four*!

    Shooter McGavin : I know. I just said I saw it.

    Virginia : [laughs]  Oh, I hope he *wins*. He's a publicist's *dream*. I mean, a guy who could drive the ball *that* far - oh, he could *really* draw a crowd.

    [Virginia walks away smiling] 

    Shooter McGavin : [under his breath]  You know what *else* could draw a crowd? A golfer with an arm growing out of his ass.

    [Shooter follows Virginia scowling] 

  • Happy Gilmore : [after having been suspended for fighting with Bob Barker]  Let me just enjoy the one thing that makes me a little bit happy. This fresh, cold, delicious, turkey-filled...

    [scene cuts to a golf tee where Happy is holding a sandwich in a commercial for Subway] 

    Happy Gilmore : ...Cold-cut combo from Subway! I eat three every day to keep me strong.

    Fan : Hey Happy, hit one over here.

    Happy Gilmore : Comin' right up!

    [Happy hits the sandwich off a tee and straight into the fan's open mouth] 

    Happy Gilmore : That's what I call a hole-in-one.

  • Crazy Old Lady : [jumps on the hood of his car]  Mister! Mister! Get me outta here!

    Happy Gilmore : [while driving, pours leftover subway food on her]  Here, eat that and leave us alone!

  • Happy Gilmore : [speaking to shooter after making his first drive of the championship]  Do you know what the pathetic thing is? You have been doing this your whole life.

  • Crazy Old Lady : [after the air conditioner falls out the window and on an old lady]  Mista, mista! Get this off of me!


    Crazy Old Lady : Mista!

    Happy Gilmore : Hang on, I'll be right down there!

    Happy Gilmore : [turns to Grandma]  Hey, you know that 'Mista Mista Lady'... I think I just killed her!

  • Chubbs : [referring to the man standing in front of them wearing unusual clothing and a straw hat]  Thanks for dressing up.

    Happy Gilmore : If saw myself in clothes like that, I'd have to kick my own ass.

  • Happy Gilmore : This is a biggie, time's ticking. I gotta make some money. What do you think? Slightly downhill?

    Otto : And slanting left.

    Happy Gilmore : No, it only seems that way because you have only one shoe on.

  • Chubbs : [hugging him from behind]  It's all in the hips. It's all in the hips. It's all in the hips. It's all in the hips.

    Happy Gilmore : [embarrassed, pushes him away]  Get off of me!

    Chubbs : Just easin' the tension, baby. Just easin' the tension!

    Happy Gilmore : Yeah, well ease it on someone else.

  • Happy Gilmore : [in a bar]  I got into this tournament for one reason: money. And now I have a new reason: kicking your ass!

    Shooter McGavin : Well, I'd like to see you try.

    Happy Gilmore : [Picks up beer bottle and smashes it in half]  Let's do it, then!

    Shooter McGavin : I meant on a golf course!

    Virginia : Hey! What's going on here, huh?

    Happy Gilmore : Oh, uh, I was just looking for the other half of this bottle and there's some of it and there's some of it right there, too.

    Virginia : Why don't you just put it down?

    Happy Gilmore : Yeah, I know.

  • [Shooter has just purchased Happy's Grandmothers house] 

    Happy Gilmore : What the hell is the matter with you?

    Shooter McGavin : Well, Real Estate is a hobby of mine...

    [Happy goes to hit McGavin] 

    Shooter McGavin : Ah ah. You lay another finger on me, I burn the house down and piss on the ashes.

  • [an alligator eats Happy's ball] 

    Happy Gilmore : That Son of a Bitch. Give me my ball, come on, pop it up, you dirty bastard. I swear I'm gonna... give the ball, alligator. Hey, you've got one eye, Chubbs. You took his hand.

  • Happy Gilmore : [after missing a slap shot by far]  Dammit! Is that goal regulation size or what? Sheesh!

  • [after Happy finally sinks his putt after 7 tries] 

    Guy on Green : It's about time!

    Happy Gilmore : Yeah it is about time. I mean I just couldn't get the ball in the hole. I *wanted* to but I just couldn't do it.

    [Happy pulls the guy's shirt over his head and then punches him in the face] 

  • Happy Gilmore : [to himself while getting pelted with baseballs inside the batting cage]  Oh, God, that hurt a little, but I'm alright.

  • Happy Gilmore : [to Shooter]  It ain't over, McGavin. The way I see it... we've only just begun.

  • Grandma : [watching Happy's Subway commercial]  It makes me hungry.

    Happy Gilmore : Yeah, well we won't have to worry about eating anymore, Grandma. See, they gave me this card: free Subway for life.

  • Chubbs : So, you're a hockey player, huh?

    Happy Gilmore : Yeah

    Chubbs : You're gonna give that shit up. You're gonna concentrate on golf.

  • Chubbs : [in the parking lot of the golf course]  Golf's no different from Hockey. It requires talent and self discipline.

    Happy Gilmore : Golf requires goofy pants and a fat ass. You should talk to my neighbor, the accountant. Probably a great golfer... huge ass.

    Chubbs : Hey, I'll bet your neighbor the accountant can't drive the ball four hundred yards. I'll bet your neighbor the accountant doesn't have a shot to get on the Pro Tour!

    Happy Gilmore : And how would I do that?

    Chubbs : You win the Open tomorrow, and you're automatically on the Pro Tour. Then who knows? Maybe you'll win the Tour Championship one day. Get that gold jacket that I never got.

    Happy Gilmore : Gold jacket, green jacket, who gives a shit?

  • Happy Gilmore : [a limo passes by]  Whoa, must be Burt Reynolds or somethin'.

  • Donald : [intentionally antagonizing Happy]  Hey Gilmore, you suck ya jackass.

    Happy Gilmore : Why don't you shut the hell up.

  • Virginia : [Happy has just been hit by a car]  Happy! Happy are you okay?

    Happy Gilmore : [groaning]  Volkswagen!

    Donald : [out of the window, driving the car]  Jackass!

  • Happy Gilmore : [to Chubbs]  You know that alligator that got your hand? Well I got his HEAD!

  • [first lines] 

    [opening narration voice over] 

    Happy Gilmore : My name is Happy Gilmore. Ever since I was old enough to skate, I loved hockey. I wasn't really the greatest skater though. But that didn't stop my dad from teaching me the secret of smacking his greatest slap shot.

    [Young Happy, hits a hard plastic ball into his father's forehead] 

  • [a TV is broadcasting Happy's tirade on the golf course] 

    Happy Gilmore : Piece of monkey shit!

  • Grandma : Who are you waving at, Happy?

    Happy Gilmore : Nobody, Grandma. Let's go home.

  • Bob Barker : How you doing, Happy? I'm Bob Barker.

    Happy Gilmore : What an honor. How nice to meet you.

    Bob Barker : Looks like you and I are going to be playing together today.

  • Happy Gilmore : [to Chubbs]  A guy your size, why don't you play a real sport, like football?

    Chubbs : My Momma wouldn't sign the permission slip. Said it might be a little too dangerous.

    Happy Gilmore : Yeah, good call.

  • Happy Gilmore : [to the golfers at a golfing range]  Step right up, folks. See if you can out drive the amazing Golf Ball, uh, Whacker Guy!

  • Happy Gilmore : [to Grandma]  I'm telling you this place is perfect, you're gonna make friends in no time.

  • Happy Gilmore : [while on an ice rink]  I'll make you a bet.

    Virginia : Do you always carry a puck with you?

    Happy Gilmore : [while skating towards her]  Yeah. Alright, now, if you get that puck in that net over there, I'll never bother you again. But if you miss, you got to give me a big fat kiss. And you have to pretend you like it too.

    Virginia : Really?

    Happy Gilmore : Good luck.

    [Virginia shoots puck and scores] 

    Happy Gilmore : Holy shit. Talk about your all time backfires.

  • Happy Gilmore : But she's an old lady. I mean, look at her. She's old. You can't just take her stuff. She's too old.

    IRS Agent : I'm sorry, I have no discretion. Her stuff is now our stuff.

  • Happy Gilmore : [arrvies at Grandma's house to see a bunch of boxes outside her house]  Grandma? Grandma?

    Happy Gilmore : [sees two movers taking Grandma's couch]  Hey, put that stuff down! That's my grandmother's!

    Mover : God, kid! We're just doing our jobs!

    Happy Gilmore : What are you talking about?

    IRS Agent : [arrives from the hall with Grandma]  Your grandmother hasn't paid her taxes in over a decade.

    Happy Gilmore : What? Grandma, you didn't pay your taxes?

    Grandma : I would have. But I didn't have any money.

    Happy Gilmore : [to the IRS Agent]  Where are you taking all her stuff?

    IRS Agent : I'm not taking her stuff, alright? The government is. It's not- it's not like i'm taking her stuff over to my place or something like that, alright? So don't get mad at me.

    Happy Gilmore : But she's an old lady, I mean look at her, she's old! You can't just take her stuff, she's too old!

    IRS Agent : I'm sorry, I have no discretion here. Her stuff is now our stuff.

    Happy Gilmore : [to Grandma]  Well, at least we got the house, right? I mean, I can bring furniture from my place over here. We're gonna be okay, Grandma.

    IRS Agent : Now, you're really gonna be mad. I have to take the house too.

    Happy Gilmore : Whoa, look pal, my grandfather built this house with his bare hands and my Grandma's been here over 60 years. You can't take her house.

    IRS Agent : Mrs. Gilmore owes the IRS $270,000 in back taxes.

    Happy Gilmore : Oh my god!

    IRS Agent : We have to take the house and if you can't get the money together in 90 days, we're gonna have to sell the house to someone else. You hate me don't you?

    Happy Gilmore : No, no no. I don't hate you.

    IRS Agent : [Gets thrown out of the house by Happy and smashes through Grandma's front glass door and rolls down the porch stairs]  He hates me.

  • [Happy walks into Doug Thompson's office] 

    Doug Thompson : There you are.

    Shooter McGavin : Hey! Happy Gilmore, come on down!

    Doug Thompson : Thank you, Shooter. Sit down, Mr. Gilmore. So you had a fight with a game show host on national TV. I don't consider that entertainment. This is not hockey, Mr. Gilmore, no matter how much you want it to be.

    Happy Gilmore : Look, I know that and I'm sorry, all right? But it wasn't my fault. There was some guy out there giving me crap, and it took every ounce of my energy not to hit him.

    Shooter McGavin : So you decided to headbud Bob Barker? Uh, who won that fight, anyway?

    Doug Thompson : That's enough, Shooter. Now, the board has taken the following actions: You'll be fined 25,000 dollars and suspended for one month.

    Shooter McGavin , Happy Gilmore : Suspended?

    Happy Gilmore : I gotta play!

    Shooter McGavin : Doug, kick him off the Tour!

    Doug Thompson : Well, the board thinks that might be a little extreme, considering that our ratings today were... the highest that we've ever had.

    Happy Gilmore : Doug, look, my grandmother's house got repossessed. If I can't make some prize money in the next tournament, they could sell it to somebody else.

    Doug Thompson : Well, whoop-dee-doo. Get out.

    [Happy leaves; Virginia follows; Shooter smirks in triumph]
