An excerpt …

(Now it's more than just a game...)

TIM: (entering quickly with the others) You did it!

PHILLIP: Did not!

TIM: I saw you do it!

PHILLIP: I tell ya, I didn’t do it!

WES: We saw you do it!

PHILLIP: Look, the coach was just standin’ there bendin’ over to get a drink. I didn’t even see him!

JOHN: You crashed right into him, Phil.

BILLIE: You creamed him with the equipment box.

TIM: (looking down at the floor) And now look at him. Out cold. Great. Half-time, score’s tied and you just killed the coach.

PHILLIP: I didn’t kill the coach! He’s breathing!

WES: Sometimes they keep breathing after they’re dead.

PHILLIP: They do not!

JOHN: Like ghosts … that’s the soul of the coach tryin’ to get you … so he can come after you, Phillip!

PHILLIP: (bending down over the prostrate coach) Oh, get real. He’s just a little bit … you know …

BILLIE: Dead. He’s a little bit dead.

PHILLIP: Stop sayin’ that! He’s just knocked out! He’ll wake up in a minute and I’ll tell him I’m sorry and everything will be okay and we can go back to playin’ basketball.

(Philip is chosen to replace the coach.)

WES: Come on … practice before we go out there.

PHILLIP: Do what?

WES: Practice bein’ a coach!(imitating a blustering coach) “Are you kidding?!! That was no foul!”

JOHN: “Come on ref, he was all over him!”

BILLIE: “Oh gimme a break! What are you, blind?”

TIM: “Time out! Time out! Call a time out you lame brains!”

PHILLIP: I can’t do that!

JOHN: You gotta do that, Phil. You caused all this, now you gotta fix it.
