    • Coach Taylor: Go ahead say what's on your mind. Vince: First of all you didn't ask me about how I felt about Jess being on the team. And this shirt and tie? Whatever high standards you're looking for this ain't it. Coach Taylor: Close that door. When I first met you you were climbing out of a police car. People said you were a punk and you'd never last on the field. Vince: Screw that.I work hard for everything. Coach Taylor: I know that and you oughta be proud of that. I am. Your teammates are proud of you. It's about the character. It's about striving to be better than everybody else. Vince: Coach, my dad just got out of prison. He's staying with me at my house. And I can't stand him. My mom she asked me to forgive him, to be better. And you're asking me to be better. I don't know how to be better because he never taught me how! He never taught me to be better! He's not around. And I'm supposed to be better!? Coach Taylor: Listen to me. I said you need to strive to be better than everyone else. I didn't say you needed to be better than everyone else. But you gotta try. That's what character is. It's in the trying.

    • Tinker: This suit? It's hot. I'm baking. Hastings: I can see you want bacon.

    • Jess: I'm sorry about all of this today. Tami: You know… Jess: And if it means anything? I was listening. Tami: Well I'm glad. It does mean something to me. Jess: I'll tell ya, these rally girls, but then I can kind of understand them cuz everyone just wants to feel a part of the team.
