"Aw, how could he (Jorge Orta) lose the ball in the sun, he's from Mexico."
"Booze, broads, and bullshit. If you got all that, what else do you need?"
"Hello again, everybody. It's a bee-yooo-tiful day for baseball."
"I figure I had no business being here this long anyway, so what do you care how old I am? I've been on borrowed time for years. You know my old saying: live it up, the meter's running. I've always said that if you don't have fun while you're here, then it's your fault. You only get to do this once."
"I know it is the fans that are responsible for me being here. I've always tried in each and every broadcast to serve the fans to the best of my ability."

"My whole philosophy is to broadcast the way a fan would broadcast."
"Now, you tell me, if I have a day off during the baseball season, where do you think I`ll spend it? The ballpark. I still love it. Always have, always will."
"Oh, I get a little tired now and then, but knowing my lifestyle, that's only natural."
"They (Expos fans) discovered 'boo' is pronounced the same in French as it is in English."
"This has been the remarkable thing about the fans in Chicago, they keep drawing an average of a million-three a year, and, when the season's over and they've won their usual seventy-one games, you feel that those fans deserve a medal."
"You could tell he (President Ronald Reagan) was an old radio guy. He never once looked at the television monitor."
