Bagger Vance: I hear you lost your swing. I guess we got to go find it.

Bagger Vance: You wanna quit Mr. Junuh? You know you can just go ahead and creep off somewhere I'll tell folk you took sick... Truth be told, ain't nobody gonna really object... In fact, they'd probably be happy as bugs in a bake shop to see you pack up and go home.
Rannulph Junuh: You know I can't quit.
Bagger Vance: I know... Just makin sure you know it too.

Rannulph Junuh: Alright I'll play in your stupid golf tournament (to Adel) I shoulda' let you finish what you started, now I got nothin' at all to show for it.

Rannulph Junuh: You gonna hit the ball or you gonna dance with it?

Hardy Greaves: I heard my dad say that you won every golf tournament there ever was in the South and how you hit a drive so long that they made you stop playin for 20 minutes just to measure it for a record... and how you used to swing righty, but you were in the woods once by this tree so there was no room to swing righty... so you borrowed somebody's lefty club and hit the ball six inches from the hole.

Adele Invergordon: And now I'm supposed to run into your arms and melt like butter on a hot muffin?

Old Hardy Greaves: God is happiest, when his children are at play.

Rannulph Junuh: I lost my swing Adele.
Adele Invergordon: Really? Where'd it go?

Adele Invergordon: Oh, Jesus. I've died and gone to hell.

Rannulph Junuh: Interesting match.
Adele Invergordon: I've always thought so.

Bagger Vance: Yeah the rythm of the game just like the rythm of life.

Bagger Vance: Yep... Inside each and every one of us is one true authentic swing... Somethin' we was born with... Somethin' that's ours and ours alone... Somethin' that can't be taught to ya or learned... Somethin' that got to be remembered... Over time the world can, rob us of that swing... It get buried inside us under all our wouldas and couldas and shouldas... Some folk even forget what their swing was like.

Rannulph Junuh: I'm not asking for your crown, Walter. If I wanted it badly enough, I'd just take it.

Bagger Vance: Don't make no sense is all... Man say he don't play no golf when he out here this shade of night hittin balls off in the dark where he can't even see 'em.
Rannulph Junuh: Yep... Well, I've done things that have made less sense.
Bagger Vance: As we all have.

Bagger Vance: See, the trick is... to find your swing.
Rannulph Junuh: What'd you say?
Bagger Vance: Well you lost your swing... We got to go find it... Now it's somewhere... in the harmony... of all that is... All that was... All that will be.

Rannulph Junuh: This is getting embarassing.
Bagger Vance: Oh no sir, this has been embarassing for quite some time.

Walter Hagen: The meaning of it all is that there is no meaning.

Factual error: When the second round of the tournament is starting and Bagger Vance is telling Rannulph Junuh about 'the field', just after Bobby Jones has taken his tee-shot, Bagger hands Junuh a ball and tee. The tee is a red plastic 'castle' style tee. Apart from being illegal in tournament play, I'm pretty sure they weren't around in the 1920's.

Question: Why is no credit given to Jack Lemmon?

Answer: There are many reasons that known actors appear in movies and are uncredited. Cameo appearances often go un-credited. Actors sometimes do a cameo if they are friends with the director or the other stars. It can add an unexpected surprise for the audience. There are also contract and payment issues if an actor receives billing in the credit. Jack Lemmon, who was the narrator for the story, may have preferred not being credited. He was certainly a big enough star that if he wanted to be listed in the credits, he would have received proper billing.
