Ray Kinsella: My name's Ray Kinsella. You used my father's name in one of your stories... John Kinsella.
Terence Mann: You're seeing a whole team of psychiatrists, aren't you?

Doc Graham: And now, Ray Kinsella, I want to ask you a question. What's so interesting about a half an inning that would make you come all the way from Iowa to talk to me about it 50 years after it happened?
Ray Kinsella: I didn't really know til just now, but I think it's to ask you 'If you could do anything you wanted... if you could have a wish?'
Doc Graham: And are you the kind of man who could grant me that wish?
Ray Kinsella: I don't know... I'm just asking.

Doc Graham: Well, you know I... I never got to bat in the major leagues. I would have liked to have had that chance, just once. To stare down a big league pitcher. To stare him down, and just as he goes into his windup, wink. Make him think you know something he doesn't. That's what I wish for.

Doc Graham: Chance to squint at a sky so blue that it hurts your eyes just to look at it. To feel the tingling in your arm as you connect with the ball. To run the bases - stretch a double into a triple, and flop face-first into third, wrap your arms around the bag. That's my wish, Ray Kinsella. That's my wish. And is there enough magic out there in the moonlight to make this dream come true?
