“Sure, Mohawks has beaten us twelve years in a row. Sure, they’re terrific athletes. They’ve got the best equipment money can buy. Hell, every team they’re sending over here has their personal masseuse. But it doesn’t matter. Do you know that every Mohawk competitor has an electrocardiagram, blood and urine analysis every 48 hours to see if there’s any change in his physical condition? Do you they use the most sophisticated training methods from the Soviet Union, East and West Germany, and the newest Olympic power, Trinidad and Tobago? But it doesn’t matter. It just doesn’t matter. IT JUST DOESN’T MATTER! And even if we win, if we win, HAH! Even if we play so far above our heads that our noses bleed for a week to ten days; even if God in Heaven above points his hand at our side of the field; even if every man, woman, and child joined hands together and prayed for us to win, it just wouldn’t matter because all the really good looking girls would still go out with those guys from Mohawk because they’ve got all the money! It just doesn’t matter if we win or if we lose. IT JUST DOESN’T MATTER!”

— Tripper (Bill Murray), Meatballs (1979), written by Len Blum & Daniel Goldberg & Janis Allen & Harold Ramis
