about winning or losing!

One, two, three, six!

One two, three, seven!

One, two, three, eight!

One, two, three, nine!

[ Coach ] They think it's about building

character, don't they, Cleaver?

We're gonna go over

to this play here.

We're gonna have this guard pull out

here. This guy pulls out here.

The quarterback drops back.

We have an option.

He goes deep,

and we go to him.

[ Coach's Voice ] Looks the same--

Different look--

- This play is different.

- See?

- It's all relative.

- [ Coach Continues, indistinct ]

- Hmm? You understand?

- The quarterback sneaks back.

We are here to do two things

and two things only.

That is to win

and to win big!

- [ Together ] Yeah!

- Yeah!


- Break!

- Come on, Beaver! Go get 'em!

Down! Set!

- You're lunch meat!

- [ Growls ] You're mine!


- [ Grunting ]

- Put it up, Cleaver!

- [ Coach ] Put it up!

- [ Screaming ]

There's gotta be

an easier way to get a bike.

Yeah, well, what'd

you expect, Beav?

There is a reason football

players wear more equipment

than guys who train attack dogs.

Bedtime, boys.

Beaver, decided where you're gonna put

that Heisman trophy?

You mean I don't have to wait till

the end of the season to get a trophy?

He's just jokin' on ya, Beav. You don't

get the Heisman trophy till college.

Well, after watching you today,

I wouldn't rule it out.

You took some licks,

but you didn't quit.

Your mom and I just want you

to know how proud we are of ya.

I wanted to let you know I've decided

to become a doctor when I grow up.

Oh, boy, wait'll

I tell your mom. Ha!

I always said football

is a real confidence builder.

Back when I was playing sandlot

I found that I learned the great many--

Yeah, well,

you've heard this before.

Where did we leave off?
