Season 3 Quotes
|Season 3 / Episode 12: - Underdogs|
Tyra Collette: Two years ago, I was afraid of wanting anything. I figured wanting would lead to trying, and trying would lead to failure. But now I find I can't stop wanting. I wanna fly somewhere in first class. I wanna to travel to Europe on a business trip. I wanna get invited to the White House. I wanna learn about the world. I wanna surprise myself. I wanna be important. I wanna be the best person I can be. I wanna define myself instead of having others define me. I wanna win an have people be happy for me. I wanna lose and get over it. I wanna not be afraid of the unknown. I wanna grow up to be generous and big hearted, the way that people have been with me. I want an interesting and surprising life. It's not that I think I'm gonna get all these things. I just want the possibility of getting them. College represents possibility. The possibility that things are gonna change. I can't wait.
|Season 3 / Episode 5: - Every Rose Has Its Thorn|
Eric Taylor: What the hell are you doing?
Matt Saracen: I do whatever you ask me to. I helped you win the State Championship. I got you to 3 and 1 this season. I work my ass off at practice. I do everything that you say. If it's cause J.D. is better than me, tell me that.
Eric Taylor: My job is to field a team out there that wins games. Right now, that means J.D. McCoy, yes.
Matt Saracen: Then I quit.
Eric Taylor: You're not quitting this team. I'm not gonna let you quit. I know you. You quit this team, you're gonna hate yourself. You wanna be pissed? Fine, go ahead. You be pissed I don't give a damn. But you're not quitting this team.
Matt Saracen: Fine, I'll sit on your bench. I'll come to practice and I'll do whatever you tell me to do. But I'm gonna hate it. And you're gonna hate it. Good talk, Coach.
