Terence: The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again. Oh people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come.
Ray Kinsella: I want to know what’s out there! I want to see it!
Shoeless Joe: But you’re not invited.
Ray: Not invited? What do you mean I’m not invited! That’s my corn out there, you guys are guests in my corn!
Terence Mann: Ray –
Ray: No wait, I have done everything that I’ve been asked to do! I didn’t understand it, but I’ve done it; and I haven’t once asked ‘what’s in it for me?’
Joe: What are you saying Ray?
Ray: I’m saying, what’s in it for me?
Joe: Is that why you did this, for you?
Shoeless Joe Jackson: Is this heaven?
Ray Kinsella: No, it’s Iowa.
Doc: Thought is real. Physical is the illusion. Ironic, huh?
