Michael: You think the police is gonna come and get me?
Leigh Anne Tuohy: I'd imagine the last thing they want at Hurt Village is bunch of cops snooping around. I swore I'd never ask this, but how'd you get out of there, Michael?
Michael: When I was little and something awful was happening my Mama would tell me to close my eyes. She was tryin' to keep me from seeing her do drugs or other bad things. And then when she was finished or the bad things were over she'd say, "now when I count to three, you open your eyes and the past is gone, the world is a good place, and it's all gonna be okay."
Leigh Anne Tuohy: You closed your eyes. You know, when I was driving all over Kingdom Come looking for you, I kept thinking about one thing. Ferdinand the bull. I know I should have asked this a long time ago, Michael. Do you even wanna play football? I mean do you even like it?
Michael: I'm pretty good at it.
Leigh Anne Tuohy: Yeah, you are. Sean and I have been talking and... Michael, if you're gonna accept the football scholarship we think it should be to Tennessee. And I promise that I will be at every game cheering for you.
Michael: Every game?
Leigh Anne Tuohy: Every game. But I will not wear that gaudy orange. I will not. It is not in my color wheel and I'm not gonna wear it.
Michael: So you want me to go to Tennessee?
Leigh Anne Tuohy: I want you to do whatever you want. It is your decision, Michael. It's your life.
Michael: What if I want to flip burgers?
Leigh Anne Tuohy: It's your decision; it's your life.
Leigh Anne Tuohy: Okay, what?
Michael: I'm sorry I left the other day.
Jocelyn Granger: You were pretty upset.
Michael: You ask a lot of questions.
Jocelyn Granger: I'm just trying to get to the bottom of this.
Michael: But all questions you asked were about why everybody else wanted me to go to Ole Miss.
Jocelyn Granger: Okay...
Michael: Not once did you ask why did I want to go there.
Jocelyn Granger: Alright, fine, Michael... Why do you want to go to Ole Miss?
Michael: Because it's where my family goes to school. It's where they've always gone to school.
Leigh Anne Tuohy: College is going to be different experience for you, Michael. SJ, stop it. There are lots of distractions.
Sean Tuohy: Have a fun.
Leigh Anne Tuohy: There's gonna be some nimrod in the dorm who wants to play video games all night, or goof on the internet.
Sean Tuohy: Just have fun.
Leigh Anne Tuohy: And you will spend a lot of time at practice, which means... which means you have to be very dedicated to your studies, alright? SJ, if you don't stop it right--- Come here.
Miss Sue: Relax, Mama. I just got back from the library. I reserved a private cubicle for the semester. Here's your class schedule and our study hall hours. Now, if y'all don't mind I'm gonna go move into my new apartment.
Leigh Anne Tuohy: Thank you, Miss Sue.
Sean Tuohy & Collins Tuohy: "Thank you, Miss Sue"
Miss Sue: Yeah, yeah, yeah....
Leigh Anne Tuohy: Let's see what you've got: College's Writing, good, psychology, math lab... It's gonna be good. Just...A lot of good classes.
Sean Tuohy: You'll have a lot of fun.
Leigh Anne Tuohy: SJ! Michael Oher, you listen to me, alright? I want you to enjoy yourself, but if you get a girl pregnant out of wedlock, I'll crawl in the car, drive up here to Oxford and cut off your penis.
S.J.Touhy: She means it.
Michael: Yes ma'am.
Leigh Anne Tuohy: Alright. Now, 78's gonna be a parking lot. So we should be going. Or everyone... Say the goodbyes, alright? Here. Bye, baby.
Michael: Thank you, Mama.
Leigh Anne Tuohy: You're welcome.
Michael: Why'd she always do that?
Sean Touhy: She's an onion. Michael. You have to peel her back one layer at a time.
Michael: I'll be back.
Leigh Anne Tuohy: What? What, Michael?
Michael: I need a proper hug.
