FIELD OF DREAMS ~ PEOPLE WILL COME

~~~~~~

From the film: Field of Dreams

~~~~~~

 

Ray: You're interrupting the game, Mark.

Mark: It's time to put away your little

fantasies and come down to Earth.

Ray: It's not a fantasy. They're real.

Mark: Who is real?

Ray: Shoeless Joe Jackson, the White Sox, all of them.

Terence: You mean?


Ray: No. He can't see any of them.

Mark: Who is this, Elvis?

Ray: As a matter of fact, it's Terence Mann.

Mark: How do you do? I'm the Easter Bunny.

 

Mark: Let's settle this thing now.

Ray: Look. I'm not selling.

Mark: You have no money. You have a stack of bills!
Come fall, you got no crop to sell.
But, I have a deal that allows you to stay on the land.

Karin: Daddy? We don't have to sell the farm.

Mark: You'll live in the house rent-free.

Ray: What about the team ....

Mark: Do you realize how much this land is worth?

Ray: Yeah. Yeah. $..... an acre.

Mark: We can't keep a useless

baseball diamond in rich farmland.

Ray: Read my lips. We're staying, all right?
We're staying.


Mark: Ray, you're bankrupt! I'm offering you a way to

keep your home because I love my sister. My partners

don't care and are ready to foreclose right now.

Karin: Daddy, we don't have to sell the farm.

Ray: Karin, please!  Just wait! Wait!

Karin: People will come.

Ray: What people, sweetheart?

Karin: From all over.
They'll just decide to take a vacation, see? And they'll

come to Iowa City. They'll think it's really boring.
So they'll want to pay us. Like buying a ticket.

Mark: You're not seriously listening to this, are you?

Ray: Yes.  Wait a minute.
Why would anybody pay money to come here?

Karin: To watch the games.
It will be just like when they were kids, a long time ago.
They'll watch the game and remember what it was like.

Mark: What the hell is she talking about?

Karin: People will come.

Mark: All right. This is fascinating ... but you don't

have the money to bring the mortgage up to date.
So, you're still going to have to sell.

I'm sorry, Ray. We got no choice.

Terence: People will come, Ray.
They'll come to Iowa for reasons

they can't even fathom.
They'll turn up your driveway, not

knowing for sure why they're doing it.

They'll arrive at your door as innocent

as children ... longing for the past.

"Of course, we won't mind if you look around",

you'll say. "It's only $.... per person."

They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it.
For it is money they have and peace they like.

Mark: Ray! Just sign the papers.

 

 

 

Terence: Then they'll walk off to the bleachers ...
and sit in their shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon.

They'll find they have reserved seats
somewhere along one of the baselines ...
where they sat when they were children
and cheered their heroes ...

... and they'll watch the game ... and it will be

as if they dipped themselves in magic waters.

The memories will be so thick ... they'll

have to brush them away from their faces.

Mark: When the bank opens in

the morning, they'll foreclose.

Terence: People will come, Ray.

Mark: You're broke, Ray.
You sell now, or you lose everything.

Terence: The one constant through all

the years, Ray, has been baseball.
America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers.
It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt,

and erased again.

But baseball has marked the time.
This field, this game. It's a part of our past, Ray.
It reminds us of all that once

was good ... and it could be again.

Ooh... People will come, Ray.
People will most definitely come.


Mark: Ray, you will lose everything.
You will be evicted.
 

Shoeless Joe (quietly): Come on, Ray.
 

I'm not signing.

"We must do what we conceive to be the right thing and not bother our heads or burden our souls with whether we will be successful. Because if we don't do the right thing, we will be doing the wrong thing and we will just be a part of the disease and not part of the cure." ~ E. F. Schumacher
