What’s The Problem? - Brad Pitt in Moneyball

What’s The Problem? - Brad Pitt in Moneyball

Grady Fuson (Ken Medlock): We're trying to solve the problem here, Billy.

Billy Beane (Brad Pitt): Not like this you're not. You're not even looking at the problem.

We're very aware of the problem. I mean...

Okay, good. What's the problem?

Look, Billy. We all understand what the problem is. We have to replace...

Okay, good. What's the problem?

The problem is we have to replace three key players in our lineup.

No. What's the problem?

Pittaro (Vyto Ruginis): Same as it's ever been. We've gotta replace these guys with what we have existing.

No. What's the problem, Barry?

Barry: We need 38 home runs, 120 RBI's and 47 doubles to replace.

AAAh! The problem we're trying to solve is that there are rich teams and there are poor teams. Then there's fifty layers of crap, and then there's us. It's an unfair game. And now we've been gutted. We're like organ donors for the rich. Boston's taken our kidneys, Yankees have taken our heart. And you guys just sit around talking the same old good body nonsense, like we're selling jeans. Like we're looking for Fabio. We've got to think differently. We are the last dog at the bowl. You see what happens to the runt of the litter? He dies.
