* The scene where Smith decides Red Pollard and Seabiscuit are perfect for each other. Two downtrodden, beaten competitors, so angry at life...brought together.
* The scene where Smith decides Red Pollard and Seabiscuit are perfect for each other. Two downtrodden, beaten competitors, so angry at life...brought together. * "You don't throw a whole life away just 'cause it got banged up a bit." * Similarly, how he set Red and Seabiscuit on the road to recovery together. His statement [[FridgeBrilliance applies to both of them]]: --> "They've got him so messed up running in circles he's forgotten what he was made to do... He's just gotta learn how to be a ''horse'' again." * Any scene with Pumpkin, the massive sweet-natured Clydesdale who goes everywhere with Seabiscuit, to keep him company. * It's small, it's subtle... but the one line, "I'd rather have you strong than thin." Half the reason Red lost almost all of his races, why he was so desperate and miserable and strung-out was because he'd been forced into an eating disorder to keep himself under 115 pounds, because all of his previous employers had held out his weight as a condition of letting him ride. And with that one line Charles Howard gives him permission to be a ''human being'' again. * When you realize Mr. Howard has grown to think of Red as a son, and is terrified of losing him [[spoiler:like he lost his little boy.]] --> "It's not just the leg--it's not! He could fall, he could get trampled! If he gets thrown from that horse...!" --> "...He could die?"
