Rudy constantly makes the list of being one of the most inspiring movies of all time. The movie tells a true football story of the human spirit, what it takes to triumph and be victorious. In this scene, the janitor of the stadium (who you find out has had his share of trials and tribulations) tells Rudy that if he gives up, he will regret it for the rest of his life. A reminder to never give up. "In this life, you don't have to prove nothin' to nobody but yourself."
"Since when are you the quitting kind?...So you didn't make the dress list. There are greater tragedies in the world...Oh, you are so full of crap. You're 5 feet nothin', a 100 and nothin', and you got hardly a speck of athletic ability. And you hung in with the best college football team in the land for two years. And you're also gonna walk outta here with a degree from the University of Notre Dame. In this lifetime, you don't have to prove nothin' to nobody - except yourself. And after what you've gone through, if you haven't done that by now, it ain't gonna never happen. Now go on back...
Hell, I've seen too many games in this stadium...I've never seen a game from the stands...I rode the bench for two years. Thought I wasn't bein' played because of my color. I got filled up with a lotta attitude. So I quit. Still not a week goes by I don't regret it. And I guarantee a week won't go by in your life you won't regret walkin' out, letting them get the best of ya. You hear me clear enough?"
