Damn Yankees is a musical comedy, a modern retelling of the Faust legend set during the 1950s (when the New York Yankees dominated Major League Baseball), in Washington, D.C., with a script by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop and music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross. It was based on Wallop's novel The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant.

Joe Boyd (Old Joe)

  • Wham! One long ball hitter, that's what we need! Honest to God, I'd sell my soul for one long ball hitter!
  • Hold me, Meg-quick! Put your arms around me, and don't let me go-no matter what!

Joe Hardy (Young Joe)

    • (After failing to hit the ball a few times at his tryout)
  • Do you mind if I try it one more time-with my shoes off?

Mr. Applegate

  • God, I love this job!
    • (On a telephone)
  • Hello, Hell? It's me...what do you mean, 'who?' Who else gets to leave?


  • Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets ... and little man, little Lola wants you!
