Parents 1 and 2: No. Thank you, no.

Cathy: You know, Mike, forgive me for intruding, but I don’t know if it’s appropriate for you to be drinking here in front of the children.

Parent 2: And it is 10:30 in the morning.

Mike: Hey, I just like to relax while I’m at the ball field. You know what I’m saying?

Cathy: I guess so.


Cathy: Brandon, everything is gonna be okay. Just do as your father says, please.

Mike: Oh, look. Looks like your boy is about to drive him some runt.

Parent 1: Yeah.

Mike: Let’s go Nathan, ducks on the pond. Woo-hoo!

Parent 1: It’s okay, Nathan, it’s okay. No matter what happens, he can’t hurt you.

Umpire: Hey, hey, hey, hey! What are you trying to do? Now, listen, we got 18 nine-year-olds out there scared you’re gonna do something violent to ’em. Now, you have a choice — you can leave or you could stay and shut up and act like an adult.

Mike: Got you. I’m clear, Blue.

Umpire: Good.

Mike: Alright. Hey, let’s just play ball, right, everybody?

Cathy: Mike, I know the name of a very good therapist.

Mike: Thanks. Maybe I’ll get that number from you later. By the way, do you know who I talk to about becoming coach next season? HEY, LISTEN, CRYBABY! I WILL DOWN-SIZE YOUR FACE WITH A SHOVEL IF YOU DON’T GET ON THE BAG. NOW, GET ON THAT BAG! Snow cone, anyone?
