Voiceover

Gus, you home?  
No.  
I guess that means I can come in. Is this some new kind of style I'm not up on?  
Its Fang Shmay. Don't you know anything?  
Gus is one of the best scouts baseball's ever seen. He's the guy who signed Dusty Baker, Dale Murphy, Tom Glabbin.  
Gus Lobel.  
What are you fellas staring at? I'm not a pole dancer.  
Welcome to the partnership committee.  
I want this.  
You'd be the only woman.  
My father is a baseball scout. I grew up around men who swore, drank, and farted.  
Get me a damned check.  
Trust me, I can handle it.  
You need to meet with a specialist. How are you going to scout this guy if your eyes aren't right?  
I don't need your help. I don't know why you just don't go home.  
Because I feel this dysfunctional sense of responsibility to make sure that you're okay.  
How old was Micky when Joanna died?  
Six.  
How'd you handle all that by yourself?  
I didn't.  
You sent me away. Only a coward leaves their kid.  
You don't know half of what you think you do.  
Hey, you wanna dance.  
Not really.  
Just one dance. It wouldn't hurt anything.  
Alright, alright, alright.  
Get out of here before I have a heart attack trying to kill you.  
What do you think about dinner?  
You mean together?  
That's a little forward don't you think? But yeah, if you're asking me out, I accept.  
Draft's in 9 days. I don't want any surprises.  
Gus is struggling. He's going to be out of a job.  
I'm just a broken down old man. You want to get as far away from me as you can.  
Things change. Gus couldn't even type on a typewriter, let alone a computer.  
You don't know anything about the game. A computer can't tell if a kid's got instincts.  
You know too much about baseball to be a lawyer.  
Long story.  
I'd like to hear it.  
I don't want to tell it.  
You coming in?  
You're crazy.  
I just didn't want you to have life in the cheap seats. That's all.  
They weren't the cheap seats. Spending every waking moment with my dad watching baseball - those were the best seats in the house.  
You're still single aren't ya?  
Maybe you're emotionally unavailable.  
Who are you, Dr. Phil?  
Hey, that is quality television.  
Yeah.
