Coach Orion

  • How long does it take to score a goal? Less than a second! That means no puck is safe if you can't play defense! Now get this: I don't give a damn how many goals you score; I want one thing on your mind: zero! As in shutout!
  • Gotta get up early if you wanna hunt goose eggs!
  • It's a damn good thing I'm not your coach! Now get your team outta here, now! Varsity team, out! Let's go!! Move it!!
  • Well, congratulations. You just forfeited whatever mental edge you might've had over the Varsity. Now they know they own you! This isn't the pee-wees; your little Duck tricks are not gonna work at this level! Now, for the last time, stay away from the Varsity!! And get those Duck jerseys off right now. Come on, get 'em off! Right now. The Ducks are dead.




Coach Orion: Listen, if you learn nothing else when you're here, you learn this. All right? 'Cause it's not just about hockey. It's easy to be confident when you have control of the puck. It's very, very difficult to keep that confidence when you gotta take whatever strange bounces life throws your way. Don't be careless, but don't be too careful either. You cannot be afraid to lose. That's how you gain the confidence to attack the game when the puck isn't yours. That's how you attack life even when you think you don't have any control, and that's how you play real defense.

Gordon: Every time you touch the ice, remember that it was Hans who taught us to fly.

Goldberg: Life isn't bad enough, I gotta worry about being nailed off the ice too. Why am I always getting shot at?
Fulton: You're a goalie, dude. Deal.
Goldberg: Well put. Thanks, Fulton. Real sensitive.


Dean Buckley: You can learn a lot from ants. These Brazilian fire ants can teach you a lot about successful societal structure. Come here. You see there's one queen in there. The rest are dedicated worker ants. Everybody pulls their weight. Nobody complains. There's harmony and growth. Same here at Eden Hall, only you are the workers, the backbone.
Russ: And you're the queen?

Rick: [to the Ducks] You think you're funny, huh? You think you're worth a damn? You're just white trash!
Russ: Uh, who you calling white trash?
Charlie: That's right. We'll take you anytime, anywhere.
Rick: Tomorrow! Dawn!

Julie: [As another goal is scored without any shots going her way] Fulton scored, Fulton scored, I am really bored. Fulton's great, Fulton's great, last year he could barely skate...

Gordon: It's a great honor to be here today to introduce you to a truly great group of kids. Sure, they can be a little rambunctious. They've run me ragged and played more than their fair share of pranks. I still haven't forgotten about those eggs, but I hung in there, and they hung in there for me. We became the Quack Attack, the Flying "V" and the Bash Brothers. I've never had a better time. These kids are winners, each and every one of them. But more than that, these are good people. I hope that they enrich and enliven your school and your lives the way they have mine.

Rick: My dad says it was all just a publicity stunt, but it's gonna wind up killing the school's reputation.
Cole: Yeah. Them rejects should have stayed on their own side of the tracks.
Scott: Those rejects, genius. Besides, we don't have tracks, Cole. You see, there are no trains, therefore, no tracks. Do you get that?
Cole: Well, they should stay out of our school. Don't get smart with me, goalie.

Julie: [to Scooter] I hate ties. They're like kissing your brother.

Gordon: I was like you, Charlie. When I played hockey, I was a total hotshot, tried to take control of every game. I wound up quitting. So I tried the law. Same thing. I rule in the courtroom, but inside, I'm a mess. I started drinking. Man, I was going down, but then this great thing happened. Maybe the best thing ever. I got arrested and sentenced to community service. And there you were, Charlie and the Ducks. And as hard as I fought it, there you were. You gave me a life, Charlie and I want to say thank you. I told Orion about all this when I talked to him about taking over. I told him that you were the heart of the team and that you would learn something from each other. I told him that you were the real Minnesota Miracle Man.
Charlie: You did?
Gordon: I did. So be that man, Charlie. Be that man.


  • No Fear. No Limits. No Brakes. Just Ducks.
