Varsity Blues

Synopsis: In small-town Texas, high school football is a religion. The head coach is deified, as long as the team is winning and 17-year-old schoolboys carry the hopes of an entire community onto the gridiron every Friday night. In his 35th year as head coach, Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight) is trying to lead his West Canaan Coyotes to their 23rd division title. When star quarterback Lance Harbor (Paul Walker) suffers an injury, the Coyotes are forced to regroup under the questionable leadership of John Moxon (James Van Der Beek), a second-string quarterback with a slightly irreverent approach to the game. "Varsity Blues" explores our obsession with sports and how teenage athletes respond to the extraordinary pressures places on them.

are coming to burn her house down.

Though I walk through the valley of the

shadow of death, I'll not fear Bingville.

Stay loose, Mox. You never know

when Kilmer might play you.

Bingville don't stand no chance

and Bingville can't see my dance.

You wanna see

the new Tweeder end zone dance ?

You know what it's called ?

The new Tweeder end zone dance.


What a night Lance Harbor's had !

Sammy, that's about the most action

your boy's seen, ain't it ?

The Coyotes are punching it in for six.

Billy Bob...

Trainer !

- Did we score ?

- Yeah, we got the six.

How many fingers ?


It's got to be true/false. Billy Bob, he's

holding up some fingers, true or false ?

- True ?

- He's all right.

If your daddy hadn't played

his heart out for me, I'd cut your ass.

That was a good game tonight.

Good pass, Bo.

Johnny and Robert, defence

in third quarter, excellent effort.

Game ball goes to,

surprise, surprise, Lance Harbor.

Get yourself another shelf.

Pretty good running the ball, Wendell.

- How are you feeling ?

- Dog tired. It's my knee.

Never show weakness. The only pain

that matters is the pain you inflict.

Look at Billy Bob.

He's got enough heart for all of you.

Four more games.

Hang in there, you're doing fine.

Tweeder, you got any ?

My knee's killing me.

- 500 mg. How many can I have ?

- Keep them.

I got more at home.

We need more effort. What is this sh*t ?

I'm not interested in your muscles !


What a f***ing a**hole, huh ?

I'm getting f***ed-up tonight.

There you go. Chug it. What do

you mean, is he a boy or a girl ?

Look at the size of that sausage !

I just got so excited about next year,

Florida State and the future...

I think I need to be your wide receiver.

- Really, babe ? Here ?
