"Bull Durham"

Sometimes things catch my eye that have very little, if anything, to do with travel.  The Internet Movie Script Database is one of them.
I thought I'd browse around the site looking for some of my favorite travel movies, but then I got sidetracked looking up some of the all-time great movie lines and scenes.
Like the monologue of Crash Davis (played by actor Kevin Costner) in the movie, "Bull Durham."
Crash:  After 12 years in the minor leagues, I don't tryout.  Besides -- I don't believe in Quantum Physics when it comes to matters of the heart. . . or loins.
Annie (played by Susan Sarandon):  (challenging him) What do you believe in?
Crash:  (with passion)  I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, long foreplay, show tunes, and that the Novels of Thomas Pynchon are self-indulgent, overrated crap.
Crash: (continuing)  I believe that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, I believe that there oughtta be a constitutional amendment outlawing astro-turf and the designated hitter, I believe in the "sweet spot," voting every election, soft core pornography, chocolate chip cookies, opening your presents on Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve, and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last for 7 days.
Annie (And every other woman in the theater, I might add):  Oh my. . . .
Nothing to do with travel --- except that there is an airport in Raleigh Durham.  Next time I'll keep looking for travel movies.
