Coach Finstock: Now, that's how you play lacrosse, McCall! Who is that kid? He's spectacular.
Scott McCall: Coach, that's Liam.
Coach Finstock: Well, how the hell am I supposed to tell them apart? They're all wearing the same thing.
Scott McCall: They've got numbers on their jerseys, Coach.
Coach Finstock: There he is. Look at that. The humility. The grace. Sure, that wasn't Lacrosse we played out there tonight. That was La-crap! But you... You stayed on the field while the rest of these losers ran inside.
Liam Dunbar: Coach, we lost. We lost everything.
Coach Finstock: Listen to the despair. The rage simmering underneath it. See that, people? He still thinks he can win. That's why next time he will win. Because he will find a way. Now, show your new captain some love, you pukes! I said, "show him some love!"
The Lacrosse team: Liam! Li-Li-Liam! Li-Li-Liam! Liam!
Liam Dunbar: I wanna sign up for Team Captain.
Coach Finstock: Yeah, it's too late. I said end of the day.
Liam Dunbar: You didn't say end of school day.
Coach Finstock: Hey. What changed your mind?
Liam Dunbar: I held a guy's hand.
Coach Finstock: I get it. I totally get it.
Liam Dunbar: Coach doesn't want me. I don't know if the team wants me.
Scott McCall: It's not up to them. It's up to you. You have to want this. Because they're gonna keep comin' at you. They're gonna keep knocking you down. And you have to get back up. You have to show them that you can get back up. Leaders don't run.
(Coach does a slow clap as he approches)
Coach Finstock: Now that's what I'm talkin' about, McCall. That's exactly the intensity this team needs. And you, I'm lookin' forward to crushing that little adorable baby face of yours.
Coach Finstock: Extra credit? At 9 o'clock at night? Come on, guys. Get the hell out of here. Go have lives. Your teenage years are not the time for academic achievement.
Mason Hewitt: Yes, they are.
Coach Finstock: That's a lie sold to you by the government. Go find some girls, get into trouble. Live a little.
Corey Bryant: We're gay.
Coach Finstock: Even better. Go gays! Now get out of my face! I don't get paid to lock up after you losers.
Mason Hewitt: Yes, you do.
Coach Finstock: Get out of here! Go wreak some havoc like the other kids.
