Quotes – Fantastic Mr. Fox

Kristofferson: Coach there’s no whack bat where I’m from what are the rules?

Coach Skip: There’s no whack bat on the other side of the river

Kristofferson: No, we mostly just run grass sprints or play acorns.

Coach Skip: Huh — well its real simple — basically there’s three grabbers, three taggers, five twig runners and the player at whack bat. Center tagger lights the pine cone, chucks it over the basket and the whack batter tries to knock the cedar stick off the cross rock. Then the twig runners dash back and forth until the pine cone burns out and the umpire calls hot box. Finally at the end you count up however many score downs it adds up to and divide that by nine.

Kristofferson: Got it.
