47. Jeremy Grey- Vince Vaughn- Wedding Crashers

Jeremy: “I happen to know everything there is to know about maple syrup! I love maple syrup. I love maple syrup on pancakes. I love it on pizza. And I take maple syrup and put a little bit in my hair when I've had a rough week. What do you think holds it up, slick?”

44. Coach Bud Kilmer- Jon Voight- Varsity Blues

Coach Kilmer: “Oh, Big Billy Bob Crybaby!? You cost me my perfect season. How’s it feel? My quarterback is off limping, and to top it off I got watch you cry about it?”

43. Norman Dale- Gene Hackman- Hoosiers

Coach Dale: “You know, in the ten years that I coached, I never met anybody who wanted to win as badly as I did. I'd do anything I had to do to increase my advantage. Anybody who tried to block the pursuit of that advantage, I'd just push 'em out of the way. Didn't matter who they were, or what they were doing. But that was then. You have special talent, a gift. Not the school's, not the townspeople, not the team's, not Myra Fleener's, not mine. It's yours, to do with what you choose. Because that's what I believe, I can tell you this: I don't care if you play on the team or not.”

Kevin: “How about I just slap you?”
