Damn Yankees is a musical comedy, a modern retelling of the Faust legend set during the 1950s (when the New York Yankees dominated Major League Baseball), in Washington, D.C., with a script by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop and music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross. It was based on Wallop's novel The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant.

- Wham! One long ball hitter, that's what we need! Honest to God, I'd sell my soul for one long ball hitter!
- Hold me, Meg-quick! Put your arms around me, and don't let me go-no matter what!
Joe Hardy (Young Joe)
(After failing to hit the ball a few times at his tryout)
- Do you mind if I try it one more time-with my shoes off?
- God, I love this job!
(On a telephone)
- Hello, Hell? It's me...what do you mean, 'who?' Who else gets to leave?
