Timo Cruz: Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Kenyon Stone: [running lines] Yo, how many we gonna do?
Coach Ken Carter: Sir.
Kenyon Stone: Yo, sir, how many we gonna do?
Coach Ken Carter: Let's see how many you can do in... one hour and seven minutes.
Junior Battles: [after blocking the shot] All ball. All ball.
Coach Ken Carter: When we step on the floor every second that clock is ticking, we are pedal to the metal, we run the ball, we pressure the ball, and most importantly we control the tempo of the game, we make them play Richmond Oiler ball.
Coach Ken Carter: What's your deepest fear?
Worm: Why he keep saying that? What's your deepest fear? What's that mean?
Coach Ken Carter: [to the people in attendance at the board hearing] You really need to consider the message you're sending this boys by ending the lockout. It's the same message that we as a culture send to our professional athletes; and that is that they are above the law. If these boys cannot honor the simple rules of a basketball contract, how long do you think it will be before they're out there breaking the law? I played ball here at Richmond High 30 years ago. It was the same thing then; some of my teammates went to prison, some of them even ended up dead. If you vote to end the lockout, you won't have to terminate me; I'll quit.
Coach Ken Carter: I end up taking a road trip to the suburbs where I find my drunk ass point guard on top of Daddy's little princess.
Worm: Actually, I was on the bottom, coach, she was on the top.
Coach Ken Carter: l came to coach basketball players, and you became students.
Coach Ken Carter: l came to teach boys, and you became men.
Jason Lyle: You said we're a team. One person struggles, we all struggle. One person triumphs, we all triumph.
Kenyon Stone: Coach thinks I can play basketball and still get into college.
Kyra: So what are you saying? You want out?
Coach Ken Carter: You shooting the ball, what's your name?
Jason Lyle: Jason Lyle, but I ain't no sir.
Coach Ken Carter: Oh, well are you a madam?
Coach Ken Carter: [repeated] Rich what?
Timo Cruz, Kenyon Stone, Coach Ken Carter, Junior Battles, Worm, Damien Carter, Jason Lyle: RICHMOND!
Jason Lyle, Timo Cruz, Kenyon Stone, Junior Battles, Worm, Damien Carter, Maddux: [singing] We're undefeated!
