Movie Quote of the Day (‘Bull Durham,’ With a Mound Conference You Wouldn’t Believe)

Coach Larry [played by Robert Wuhl]: [Jogs out to the mound to break up a players' conference] “Excuse me, but what the hell's going on out here?

Crash Davis [played by Kevin Costner]: “Well, Nuke's scared because his eyelids are jammed and his old man's here. We need a live... is it a live rooster?”

[Jose nods]

Crash: “We need a live rooster to take the curse off Jose's glove and nobody seems to know what to get Millie or Jimmy for their wedding present.”

[to the players]

Crash: “Is that about right?”

[The players nod]

Crash: “We're dealing with a lot of shit.”

Larry: “Okay, well, uh... candlesticks always make a nice gift, and uh, maybe you could find out where she's registered and maybe a place-setting or maybe a silverware pattern. Okay, let's get two! Go get 'em!”—Bull Durham (1988), written and directed by Ron Shelton

But Coach, what about Nuke’s jammed eyelids and the live rooster for Jose’s glove?
