Rick Vaughn: [converses with Taylor on the mound] Fucking Dorn! This game should be over by now. He could’ve had that ball, he tanked it on purpose!

Jake Taylor: Hey! This isn’t the California Penal League, Vaughn, we’re professionals here! We don’t tank plays for personal reasons, so cut the crybaby shit! Now, you’ve pitched a hell of a game, you want to finish it, don’t you?

Rick Vaughn: Yeah.

Jake Taylor: Good...think you can get a strike on this guy?

Rick Vaughn: Won’t be much on it, my arm feels like Jell-O right now.

Jake Taylor: Just get it over the plate, I want him to swing.

Rick Vaughn: The last time I did that, the guy hit a ball that hasn’t even landed yet!

Jake Taylor: [grins] Don’t worry, I’ll take care of it.”
