Baseball Over Here

The Scott Eyre BailoutPhillies' owner Bill Giles: All right, Scott, how much do you need?
Scott Eyre (doggedly): Two hundred and forty-two dollars!
Giles (pleading): Aw, Scott, just enough to tide you over till the bank reopens.
Eyre: I'll take two hundred and forty-two dollars.
Giles starts rapidly to count out the money. Eyre throws his passbook on the counter.
Giles: There you are.
Eyre: That'll close my account.
Giles: Your account's still here. That's a loan!
At least that's how I picture this thing going down.

I just love It’s a Wonderful Life quotes! In fact, our fantasy baseball league is called Bedford Falls.

I always cry at the end of the movie, one of the best movies ever.

What makes this so funny for me is that we have an owner in our league named Scott Eyre and I can picture him with his hand out grinning like an idiot.
