Clayton: ...speak up George, I can't hear you!
George: You tell that son-of-a-bitch that no Yankee is ever coming to Houston; not as long as you bastards are running things!
(Mr. Wilhelm walks by right as George curses)
George Steinbrenner: We all get a little cuckoo sometimes, George. I used to be like you. Berating personnel until they cried, calling managers on the field during a game, threatening to move the team to New Jersey, just to upset people. Then I found a way to relax. I've got two words to say to you, George... Hot Tub!
