Bagger[edit]

  • Yeah, the rhythm of the game just like the rhythm of life...
  • Don't worry about hit the ball or where it goes, just swing the club, feel the club.
  • I hear you lost your swing. I guess we got to go find it.
  • Yeah, I always felt a man's grip on his club just like a man's grip on his world...
  • Yep... Inside each and every one of us is one true authentic swing... Something we was born with... Something that's ours and ours alone... Something that can't be taught to you or learned... Something that got to be remembered... Over time the world can, rob us of that swing... It get buried inside us under all our would haves and could haves and should haves... Some folk even forget what their swing was like...

Hardy[edit]

  • I heard my dad say that you won every golf tournament there ever was in the South and how you hit a drive so long that they made you stop playing for 20 minutes just to measure it for a record... and how you used to swing righty, but you were in the woods once by this tree so there was no room to swing righty... so you borrowed somebody's lefty club and hit the ball six inches from the hole...
  • Confused, broken... and unable to face a return to a hero's welcome... Junuh just dissapeared... Hoping to forget... and to be forgotten...

Dialogue[edit]

Bagger: See, the trick is... to find your swing...
Rannulph: What'd you say?...
Bagger: Well, you lost your swing... We got to go find it... Now it's somewhere... in the harmony... of all that is... All that was... All that will be...

Rannulph: I lost my swing, Adele...
Adele: Really? Where'd it go?

Bagger: Don't make no sense is all... Man say he don't play golf when he out here this shade of night hitting balls off in the dark where he can't even see them...
Rannulph: Yep... Well, I've done things that have made less sense...
Bagger: As we all have...

Rannulph: Now, the question on the table is how drunk is drunk enough? And the answer is that it's all a matter of brain cells
Hardy: Brain cells?
Rannulph: That's right, Hardy. You see every drink of liquor you take kills a thousand brain cells. Now that doesn't much matter 'cos we got billions more. And first the sadness cells die so you smile real big. And then the quiet cells go so you just say everything real loud for no reason at all. That's okay, that's okay because the stupid cells go next, so everything you say is real smart. And finally, come the memory cells. These are tough sons of bitches to kill.
