Fun Weekend Quote

I tried to find this scene on YouTube, but had no luck. Apparently my favorite scene is not the same as everyone else's. From one of my favorite movies, Good Will Hunting:


When did you know she was the one?


October 21, 1975. Game six of the

World Series. Biggest game in Red

Sox history, Me and my friends slept

out on the sidewalk all night to get

tickets. We were sitting in a bar

waiting for the game to start and in

walks this girl. What a game that

was. Tie game in the bottom of the

tenth inning, in steps Carlton Fisk,

hit a long fly ball down the left

field line. Thirty-five thousand

fans on their feet, screamin' at the

ball to stay fair. Fisk is runnin'

up the baseline, wavin' at the ball

like a madman. It hits the foul pole,

home run. Thirty-five thousand people

went crazy. And I wasn't one of them.


Where were you?


I was havin' a drink with my future



You missed Pudge Fisk's homerun to

have a drink with a woman you had

never met?


That's right.


So wait a minute. The Red Sox haven't

won a World Series since nineteen

eighteen, you slept out for tickets,

games gonna start in twenty minutes,

in walks a girl you never seen before,

and you give your ticket away?


You should have seen this girl. She

lit up the room.


I don't care if Helen of Troy walked

into that bar! That's game six of

the World Series!

Sean smiles.


And what kind of friends are these?

They let you get away with that?


I just slid my ticket across the

table and said "sorry fellas, I gotta

go see about a girl."


"I gotta go see about a girl"? What

did they say?


They could see that I meant it.


You're kiddin' me.


No Will, I'm not kiddin' you. If I

had gone to see that game I'd be in

here talkin' abouta girl I saw at a

bar twenty years ago. And how I always

regretted not goin' over there and

talkin' to her. I don't regret the

eighteen years we were married. I

don't regret givin' up counseling

for six years when she got sick. I

don't regret being by her side for

the last two years when things got

real bad. And I sure as Hell don't

regret missing that damn game.

A beat. Will is impressed.


Would have been nice to catch that

game though.



Well hell, I didn't know Pudge was

gonna hit the home run.
