- Darlin': [to Screwie] Face it, Leatherface. You're beat.
- Yankee Irving: [he and Darlin' have just had a bonding moment] Thanks, Darlin'.
- Darlin': No, no. Thank you, Yankee.
- Screwie: Oh, brother! You could pour this stuff on pancakes!
- Yankee Irving: [to the two saint bernards see him and runs past, barks loudly at Yankee] Huh? Oh, there you are! Take it ea... [to Beethoven and Cujo jumps Yankee, grunts and knocks him down. Yankee hugs Beethoven, paints and starts lick his face. Yankee laughs] Hey, you two. Stop it [Beethoven and Cujo licks Yankee's face, laughs. Beethoven and Cujo back off Yankee and barks, runs off. Yankee wipes his face] Good dogs.
- Screwie: Oh, great! I really hate saint bernards.
- Yankee Irving: [to Screwie] You see, Beethoven and Cujo the two saint bernards. [Yankee gets up, and walk over] Come on, right this way.
- Yankee: That guard had to have stolen Babe Ruth's bat!
- Screwie: Why would a guard working at a Yankee Stadium steal Babe Ruth's bat? Now, if it were somebody workin' at the stadium in Chicago, I could see that...
- Bully Kid Tubby: Hey, look. A baseball.
- Screwie: Hey, look. The missing link.
- Announcer: And it just goes to show you... You can be the smallest, you can be the weakest, you can be the worst player on the field, but when people tell you you're no good, and say you should give it up, you know what you do? You just keep on swinging.
- Screwie: [has fallen off Yankee's backpack and is bouncing down the fire escape] My head, my butt, my head, my butt!
About Everyone's Hero
- It's a lovely script. I like the simplicity of it and the beauty of it. Some of the Pixar films, you know, they've got those double entendres in it for adults, and some of the jokes truthfully I think when you're with your 6 year old you have to say, "Daddy, why is it funny when the cookie says eat me?" And you have to say, "Uhhh, because if you ate him he wouldn't be there, would he?" This doesn't have any of that in it. It's so pure and clean. It's about keep swinging, don't give up."”
