Sorry guys, I gotta' see about a girl.

WILL: So, when did you know, like, that she was the one
for you?

SEAN: October 21st, 1975.

WILL: Jesus Christ. You know the fuckin' date?

SEAN: Oh yeah. Cus' it was game six of the World Series.
Biggest game in Red Sox history.

WILL: Yeah, sure.

SEAN: My friends and I had, you know, slept out on the
sidewalk all night to get tickets.

WILL: You got tickets?

SEAN: Yep. Day of the game. I was sittin' in a bar, waitin' for
the game to start, and in walks this girl. Oh it was an
amazing game, though. You know, bottom of the 8th
Carbo ties it up at a 6-6. It went to 12. Bottom of the
12th, in stepped Carlton Fisk. Old Pudge. Steps up to the
plate, you know, and he's got that weird stance.

WILL: Yeah, yeah.

SEAN: And BAM! He clocks it. High fly ball down the left field
line! Thirty-five thousand people, on their feet, yellin'
at the ball, but that's not because of Fisk. He's wavin' at
the ball like a madman.

WILL: Yeah, I've seen...

SEAN: He's going, "Get over! Get over! Get OVER!" And then
it HITS the foul pole. OH, he goes apeshit, and 35,000
fans, you know, they charge the field, you know? >

WILL: Yeah, and he's fuckin' bowlin' police out of the way!

SEAN: Goin' "God! Get out of the way! Get 'em away!"
Banging people..

WILL: I can't fuckin' believe you had tickets to that fuckin'
game!

SEAN: Yeah!

WILL: < Did you rush the field?

SEAN: No..I didn't rush the fuckin' field, I wasn't there.

WILL: What?

SEAN: No..I was in a bar havin' a drink with my future wife. >

WILL: You missed Pudge Fisk's homerun?

SEAN: Oh yeah.

WILL: To have a fuckin' drink with some lady you never met?

SEAN: Yeah, but you shoulda' seen her. She was a stunner.

WILL: I don't care if fuckin'--

SEAN: Oh no, no, she lit up the room.

WILL: I don't care if Helen of Troy walks in the room, that's
game six!

SEAN: Oh, Helen of Troy..

WILL: < Oh my God, and who are these fuckin' friends of
yours they let you get away with that?

SEAN: Oh...They had to.

WILL: W-w-w-what'd you say to them?

SEAN: I just slid my ticket across the table and I said, "Sorry
guys, I gotta' see about a girl."

WILL: I gotta' go see about a girl?

SEAN: Yeah.

WILL: That's what you said? And they let you get away with
that?

SEAN:
Oh yeah. They saw in my eyes that I meant it.

WILL: You're kiddin' me.

SEAN: No, I'm not kiddin' you, Will. That's why I'm not
talkin' right now about some girl I saw at a bar twenty
years ago and how I always regretted not going over
and talking to her. >>> I don't regret the 18 years I was
married to Nancy. I don't regret the six years I had to
give up counseling when she got sick. And I don't regret
the last years when she got really sick. And I sure as hell
don't regret missin' the damn game. That's regret.

WILL: Wow...> Woulda' been nice to catch that game, though.

SEAN: I didn't know Pudge was gunna hit a homer.
