Memorable Quotes

Tucker: (Comes in with softball equipment) Found them. They were in the storage room next to the Christmas lights and what I thought was Mrs. Bart's lost chihuahua...... It wasn't.
Ben: Thanks man. And there will be no trash talking the B-Bar Brawlers.
Danny: I'm sorry. I just don't see the point of playing if you're not at least trying to win. Back me up here, Riley.
Riley: Oh no. I've known you both long enough to know that "back me up, Riley" is two seconds away from "Shut up, Riley. Who asked you?"
Ben: The point - wait for it - is to have fun, and the fun is what I bring. How do you think I got elected team captain?
Tucker: Well, you gave us free beer and ballots and said "vote for me".

Danny: You can't tell me you're actually okay with this. (Bonnie dating his coach)
Ben: I'm actually okay with this.
Riley: (Feeding Emma) Well, your mom dating your coach should make for some interesting pillow talk.
Danny: What? No pillows. How did there suddenly get to be pillows? They were just going to Happy Hour.
Ben: If I recall, the last girl you took to Happy Hour got so happy we got a noise complaint.
Danny: But that's different. They wouldn't... She's a mom!
Riley: And Ben's a dad. Hasn't slowed him down.
Ben: It would take a lot more than a baby.
Danny: That's it-- I can't think about this anymore. I'm going to go workout until even my brain is exhausted.
Ben: See ya' in 20. (Danny leaves and Ben talks to Riley) Any progress?
Riley: If she could eat through her nose, I'd say she's doing great.
Ben: (After successfully feeding Emma)..Aww.
Riley: Mystery solved. She's a Daddy's girl.
Ben: (Phone rings) Ah, Tucker and the guys are already at the field. I should finish feeding her. Mom's gonna be here soon, can you run my equipment down to the field for me? And take my mitt. You'll have fun. I promise.
Riley: (Holding the softball equipment) Oof. This weighed so much less when I weighed so much more.
Ben: You don't care about a shelf-full of trophies, do you? Your daddy's still a winner in your eyes, right? (Emma spits on him) I'll take that as a "yes.

Ben: Truth: I was kind of looking forward to winning for a change. Never really tried it before.
Riley: Well, I think you and the Brawlers can figure out how to do it without me.
Ben: Maybe. But what fun would that be?
Riley: Ben. Nobody wants me.
Ben: It doesn't matter. I want you. (Tosses a softball to Riley and Riley hits it and broke a car's windscreen) I think we should probably run.
Riley: Yeah. (Drops bat and runs with Ben)
