Coach Finstock Quotes in Teen Wolf (1985)
Coach Finstock Quotes:
Coach Finstock: There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.
Coach Finstock: Look Scotty, I know what you're going through. Couple years back, a kid came to me much the same way you're coming to me now, saying the same thing that you're saying. He wanted to drop off the team. His mother was a widow, all crippled up. She was scrubbing floors. She had this pin in her hip. So he wanted to drop basketball and get a job. Now these were poor people, these were hungry people with real problems. Understand what I'm saying?
Scott Howard: What happened to the kid?
Coach Finstock: I don't know. He quit. He was a third stringer, I didn't need him.
Coach Finstock: What is it, gambling? Drugs? You know I'd really like to help you but I'm kind of tapped out this month. The IRS is coming down on me like it's some personal vendetta against Bobby Finstock.
Coach Finstock: It doesn't matter how you play the game, it's whether you win or lose. And even that doesn't make all that much difference.
Dragons Basketball Coach: You want to forfeit the game?
Coach Finstock: Yeah, what's wrong with that?
Dragons Basketball Coach: No.
Coach Finstock: No?
Dragons Basketball Coach: My players have league scoring records at stake. It wouldn't be fair to them.
Coach Finstock: I just thought figured you quit now, you can beat the 5 o'clock traffic.
Dragons Basketball Coach: There's a lot to learn from losing.
Coach Finstock: Alright, we'll play, if it's that big a deal to you.
Vice Principal Thorne: It's not going too well is it?
Coach Finstock: Well, Christ, Thorne, look at the sneakers those guys are wearing. If our guys had sneakers like that there's no telling what they could do.
