Heh. #5 is practically my mantra.

You just know that was the main inspiration for the Hyperion set on Angel.

But what, no Bull Durham? Surely you've got a place in your heart for: "The rose goes in the front, big guy."

Those were the first five that came to mind. If it was a favorite quotes meme, I think one or two of those would have to change . . .

My fave Bull Durham quote is probably the shower speech. "This is a simple game. You hit the ball, you throw the ball, you catch the ball."
