  • Season 3 finale was as heartfelt as the rest of it. One show that I will truly miss if it doesn't make it.

    • Coach Taylor: (defending his coaching contract at the board meeting) I did not want to be here today. Here I am. I love my job. I'm good at it, and I'd like to keep it. I love this school, I love the kids, and I feel like I've just gotten started here. There's some people here who want to replace me, for a man with an awful lot of money and a boy with a good arm. To those people I would say: you're wrong. You are dead wrong. Y'all have a good Saturday.

    • Tim: (a Texas Longhorn Steer is announced as the next auction item) We still have some money left. This is an opportunity. I defy anyone to pass through Riggins' Rigs with that steer in front of it and not go inside. If you get that we'll make clients for life.

    • (After telling Billy that Lyla's going to Vanderbilt) Tim: I'm staying in Dillon is what it means, Billy. Riggins Rigs. We're in it together now. We're gonna be poppin' beer, makin' money, gettin' off early. I'm telling you. You're not getting it... Billy: Tim! Tim: What? Billy: Come here. You listen to me, you little idiot. You are not gonna wuss out on this. You're gonna go to college and you're gonna get a degree. And I don't care if it takes you 7 years, all right? And when you start thinking it's too hard or that you can't handle it, I want you to remember one thing. I want you to think about the kids that you don't have yet. And I want you to think about my kids. Me and Mindy's kids that we don't have yet. And you're gonna get the job done so that one of these days I can tell them that they don't have to settle for second best. That they can be whoever the hell they want to be because their uncle Timmy went to college. And God bless our mom and dad, wherever the hell they are. Tim: Yeah. Billy: But we gotta do better by our kids. Do you hear me? Tim!!? Tim: I thought... Billy: Do you hear me? Tim: Yeah. Billy: All right.
