Movie Madness Monday 129: October classic edition

Adieu, baseball! In a year in which the Cubs managed to break hearts in a completely new way, and the AL champs went from worst to first in stunning fashion while the NL's best teams swooned so that we have to watch the stoopid Phillies muppets-on-Mad Dog 20/20 mascot cavort around in blasted October, it's time to revisit this flick-- a real October classic for me. So here ya go-- put your quotes in the comments section!

"How's your wife and my kids?"

"Heywood leads the league in most offensive categories, including nose hair. When this guy sneezes, he looks like a party favor."

"Jesus, I like him very much, but he no help with curveball."
"You trying to say Jesus Christ can't hit a curveball?

"Lou-- Lou-- A minute of your time. See, it says right there; no calisthentics. What do you think of that?"

"I thought you said we didn't have any high priced talent."
"Forget about Dorn, he's just high priced."
