The Story of Seabiscuit Quotes

William Forrest as Thomas Milford, Owner Milford Farms

  • (Unnamed) "I hear you're a magician, Shawn. You can look at a yearling and tell like that whether he'll turn out champion or cow."
  • (Unnamed) "You exaggerate my abilities, George, but --"
  • (William Forrest) "But that's exactly why you're here, Shawn."
  • (Unnamed) "Oh, brother. Why, we can't even tell when they're two-year-olds. Even after we've tested them plenty against each other we sometimes let a future winner go to the sales."
  • (Unnamed) "Perhaps you've let too many winners get away, Mr. Carson."
  • (Unnamed) "Now, Maggie, naturally George is doubtful."
  • (Unnamed) "If it's proof you want, Mr. Carson, listen to this: In all the years Uncle Shawn trained for Lord and Lady Maitland in Ireland, devil a colt that turned the trick was sold by them."
  • (Unnamed) "All right, Miss Margaret. Let me in on the secret, will you?"
  • (Unnamed) "Of course. 'Tis simple. When it comes to a thoroughbred horse, Uncle Shawn is fey."
  • (Unnamed) "Fey? What's that?"
  • (Unnamed) "It has to do with the little people: elves, gnomes, fairies."
  • (Unnamed) "So we're going to have the fairies pick our horses for us. Well, I give up. Boss, you can have my resignation whenever you want it."
  • (William Forrest) "Of course not. Don't fly off the handle. You and Shawn will make a great team."
  • (William Forrest) "Did you buy anything?"
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "No, but I'm going to buy one now, if you'll sell. I saw a three-year-old of yours running in a selling race this afternoon, smallish sort of colt with big knees, Seabiscuit."
  • (William Forrest) "Seabiscuit? Why do you want him?"
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "Well, you can't shoot for the stakes all the time. I gotta have some horses for cheap races. He was entered for 6000. Will you take 8000 for him?"
  • (William Forrest) "Well, I think so. How about it, George?"
  • (Unnamed) "The string's pretty large, boss. We've got a lot like him."
  • (William Forrest) "It's a deal, Charlie."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "Good. We'll get him tomorrow. By the way, Tom, I hired Shawn O'Hara on the strength of your letter."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "What's the joke?"
  • (William Forrest) "Oh, nothing. Only George and I know now why you want the Biscuit. And listen, Charlie, when you get him back to California, don't let Shawn stable him in the living room."
  • (William Forrest) "I agree with you, Margaret, he should get to a warmer climate."
  • (Unnamed) "Where should I be taking him for a warmer climate?"
  • (William Forrest) "You'll go with him?"
  • (Unnamed) "Oh, indeed'n I will, sir."
  • (William Forrest) "Well, what about your nursing?"
  • (Unnamed) "I'll be nurse to him and him alone until he's well."
  • (William Forrest) "Well, then. I think we'd better make it California. Charlie Howard bought a stock farm out there. He could use a man like Shawn."
  • (William Forrest) "You judge the next two or three, George. Shawn and I won't open our heads."
  • (Unnamed) "I'll not so much as whisper. I give you me word."
  • (William Forrest) "Come on with him."
  • (William Forrest) "And that was bred here? What is it?"
  • (Unnamed) "Seabiscuit by Hard Tack out of Swing On."
  • (stable hand) "He's always been kind of runty."
  • (William Forrest) "Yeah. Runty's right. Look at those knees. Big enough for a three-year-old. Well, George, deciding about this one won't strain you."
  • (Unnamed) "Get him to the shipping paddock, quick."
  • (Unnamed) "One minute. Mr. Millford, I gave you me word, and you can call me what you like, but I'm going to have me say. I'm begging you, I'm praying you, don't let this little man go."
  • (Unnamed) "Well, can you beat that? Boss, I've stood for a lot here this morning, but if you keep this runty, big-kneed thing on the say of this Irish expert, I'm getting off the place."
  • (Unnamed) "Man, you don't know what you're saying. I'll leave, and gladly, to trouble you no more on one condition: give this colt a chance to show you what he can do."
  • (William Forrest) "Nobody's going to leave over one yearling. Shawn, I promised George, and I'm keeping my word. Shipping paddock."
  • (Unnamed) "The day will come, sir, when you'll hold your head higher and breathe deep to be called his owner."
  • (William Forrest) "You die hard, don't you, Shawn."
  • (Unnamed) "I doubt if it's hard enough."

with Rosemary De Camp as Charles S. Howard, Seabiscuit's Owner

  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "We really got to go east and do some buying. I got my eye on one or two I think we can get."
  • (Unnamed) "Good, we'd better start right away."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "Wait a minute, now, I don't know whether I trust you two boys to go shopping or not."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "Shawn will see that no one puts anything over on me. Have you any particular favorites?"
  • (Unnamed) "No, not offhand. Oh, yes, come to think of it, now. I do know of one. And he shouldn't cost you too much, either. Sir, it would be a pleasure to go east to the sales with you. Indeed it will, sir."
  • (Unnamed) "A good soldier, home from the wars."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "So many, many battles, poor darling."
  • (Unnamed) "No Santa Anita for us, fellow."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "Don't say that yet, Ted."
  • (Unnamed) "What else would I say?"
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "I don't know. What about it, Shawn?"
  • (Unnamed) "The stud is the place for him, sir."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "He can't be brought back?"
  • (Unnamed) "I don't think so."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "But Charlie, he's earned a rest."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "You brought back Golden Girl, remember?"
  • (Unnamed) "A young thing that ran half a dozen races with a feather on her back. He's run near 100, 30 of them in record time with high weight on him."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "Then there's no chance?"
  • (Unnamed) "A faint one, if any."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "Faint or not, we'll take it. Not even you can talk me off the Biscuit, Shawn."
  • (Unnamed) "As you say, sir."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "Well, what's the program?"
  • (Unnamed) "Well, give up everything else and devote ourselves to nursing him alone."
  • (with Rosemary De Camp) "All right, that's it. Ted, you stay and help us. We'll bring you back, too."
  • (Unnamed) "Thank you, sir. I'll stay."
