Fever Pitch (2005) Poster


Jack Kehler: Al



  • [last lines] 

    Al : [voice over]  Oh, one more thing. You know that little player to be named later? Ben says if it's a boy, they'll name him Ted Williams Wrightman. If it's a girl, Carla Yastrzemski Wrightman. Let's all pray for a boy.

  • [first lines] 

    Al : [voice over]  Eighty-six years of bangin' our heads against the big green wall, but we finally did it. That part you know. That part everybody knows. But I got a story you don't know. It's about this schoolteacher friend of mine named Ben.

  • Teresa : Did you know the Titanic sank the same week Fenway Park opened?

    Al : April, 1912.

  • Ben : [hands shaking as he tries to sign his seats over to Chris]  That's odd.

    Al : You're havin' a stroke. Good!

  • [repeated line] 

    Al : Al Waterman, have a sponge.

  • Al : [voice over]  Well, Dwight Evans parked a couple of homers, the Sox won, and by day's end poor Ben had become one of God's most pathetic creatures: a Red Sox fan.

  • [Lindsey has bought books from the Fenway Park gift shop to learn about the Red Sox] 

    Lindsey Meeks : Do you believe in this? The Curse of the Bambino?

    Ben : Hey, it's not funny, it's not funny.

    [Ben's Fenway friends all turn to stare at her] 

    Lindsey Meeks : But Babe Ruth was the Bambino.

    Ben : That's right. Yeah, yeah, yeah, he played for the Red Sox; they were great. I mean, they were the Yankees.

    Al : They won the World Series in 1912, 1915, 1916, 1918. They were royalty. The elite.

    Ben : Al should know. He was there. Actually, he's a hundred and thirty-six years old. He looks great for his age. 1919, their miserable, greedy pig of a boss decides to sell Babe Ruth to the Yankees to finance a Broadway musical.

    Teresa : 'No No Nanette'. I would never, ever see that piece of crap.

    Ben : And since 1918, the Red Sox have not won a World Series. Yeah. The Yankees have won twenty-six.

  • [At the game, Chris is persuading Ben to sell his Fenway Park seats] 

    Al : Shame on you. Your uncle Carl saw three thousand games from these seats. He's going to come back and haunt you for this.

  • Teresa : You realize you're selling your seats for exactly the same price they sold Babe Ruth for!

    Viv : You said it yourself: Relationships come and go, but the Red Sox are forever.

    Al : I want my sponges back!

  • [Ben is about to sign away his seats and looks up to Heaven] 

    Ben : I'm sorry, Uncle Carl.

    Al : [disgustedly]  Another idiot!

    [Ben looks around to see Lindsey, across the stadium, dropping from the wall onto the field]
