JP: You used to be Mel Clark?

Roger Bomman: God... if there is a God... if you're a man or a woman... if you're listening, I'd really, really like a family. My dad says that will only happen if the Angels win the pennant. The baseball team, I mean. So, maybe you can help them win a little. Amen. Oh, a-woman, too.

Ranch Wilder: Bass sets... and sets... and sets again.

Mr. Bomman: I understand.

George Knox: Hey, let's keep the profanity down.
Angel players: HUH?

Roger Bomman: Boy, they're bad.

Drunk Fan: Hemmerling for Mitchell? Go back to Cincinnati.
