 10.        "Sometime, Rock, when the team is up against it, when things are going wrong and the breaks       are beating the boys- tell them to go in there with all they've got and win just one for the Gipper. I           don't know where I'll be then, Rock. But I'll know about it, and I'll be happy." -George "The Gipper"     Gipp 

9.         “I want to give him the heat and announce my presence with authority!”  -Ebby Calvin        LaLoosh 

8.         “Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the                    Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over    now. 'Cause when the goin' gets             tough...             the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!  -Bluto 

7.         “No one, and I mean no one, comes into our house and pushes us around.” –Dan Devine 

6.         “It's easy to grin / When your ship comes in / And you've got the stock market beat. / But the         man worthwhile, / Is the man who can smile, / When his shorts are too tight in the seat.” –Judge           Smails 

5.         “Apollo was like my son. I raised him. And when he died a part of me died. But now you're the one.            You're the one that's gonna keep his spirit alive. You're the one that's gonna make sure that   he didn't die for nothing. Now you're gonna have to go through hell. Worse than any nightmare you ever dreamed. But in the end, I know you'll be the one standing.” – Duke 

4.         “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the    Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son,    husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or             the next.” – Maximus 

3.         “…today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth… 'So I close in saying            that I     might have been given a bad break, but I have an awful lot to live for! Thank you.' " – Lou Gehrig           

2.         “If you put your effort and concentration into playing to your potential, to be the best that you          can be, I don't care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, in my book we're gonna be        winners.” –Coach Norman Dale 

1.         “LET’S WIN THIS ONE FOR MARTHA!” –Glenn Paulsen
