Eight Men Out (1988) Poster


John Sayles: Ring Lardner



  • Ring Lardner : [serenading White Sox after game 5, to the tune of "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles"]  I'm forever blowing ballgames, pretty ballgames in the air. I come from Chi, I hardly try, just go to bat and fade and die. Fortune's coming my way, that's why I hardly care. I'm forever blowing ballgames, and the gamblers treat us fair.

  • Ring Lardner : Sports writers of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but your bar privileges.

  • [about the 1919 White Sox] 

    Ring Lardner : I think they're the best, Hughie. The best ever.

    Hugh Fullerton : Time will tell, Ring. Time will tell.

  • Ring Lardner : [referring to the owners]  If Landis wants to clean up the game; he should start with those birds on the steps with him.

  • Ring Lardner : Three signed confessions, that's a tough hand to beat.

    Hugh Fullerton : This is Chicago, my friend. Anything can happen.
