At the World Series:
Again With The Robe
"Andy Pettitte, now that's
a pick-off move."That
fucker can be looking right at you. You'd never know it. Got to
call him: Travolta, or pizza boy, something Italian. Got to distract
"But, yeah, even then, great pick-off move, shit, I ain't kidding:
looking right at you."
Sir this is not the line up for you, your line-up is
just over there.
"Shit, don't you think I know that? I stole home against Andy
Pettitte, shit, I know from line-ups. I'm in a bathrobe so now I
don't know from line-ups?"
Yes, of course, and, of course no one is questioning
you about baseball, but, well, it's just that, well, that bathrobe
came with a belt. And, well. We were, of course, wondering: what
happened to your belt, Mr. Gruber?
"The belt! Always with the goddamn belt! Okay, wait, do you even
know who Andy Pettitte is?"
Sir, yes, we know all about Andy Pettitte, and Manny Lee
and Dave Steve...
"No! Shit. Goddamn you! Not 'Steve', Steib. Dave.
Fucking. Steib! Okay? What!?"
Yes. Dave Steib. Of course, we know that, we know. A real
"tough cocksucker." We know, we know.
"Yeah, exactly. Tough cocksucker. Real Tough Cock Sucker."
Yes, of course, we know: "even with the moustache."
"Even with that fucking moustache."
Okay, yes, sir, that's fine. Just fine. But, please, please,
the other line-up..
"Yeah, right, the other line-up. The other line-up. Manny
Lee. Bench me for Manny Lee. Manny fucking Lee. Shit. Man,
I got kids..."
Yes of course, we understand perfectly. Perfectly. But
please Mr. Gruber, please, please, do up the robe.
"Right, again with the robe."
