The chant in REMEMBER THE TITANS

Remember the Titans

Coach Boone: What are you?
Team: Mobile, agile, hostile!
Coach Boone: What is pain?
Team: French bread!
Coach Boone: What is fatigue?
Team: Army clothes!
Coach Boone: [Coach puts hand to his ear] Will you ever quit?
Team: No! We want some mo’, we want some mo’, we want some mo’!

These are the words of Coach Boone during practice in the movie Remember the Titans. This movie is one of the most famous football movies of all time. It has the thrill of a football team winning State but also shows the struggle of Americans during 1971. This exchange of lines between the coach and players shows the unification of the team because they are referring to themselves as a collective “we.” This chant is something that stands out to me and has me hooked on this movie.
