“Nice. Awful nice.”

“There are only 2 things more beautiful than a good gun.
A Swiss watch or a woman from anywhere.”

“Go ahead. Say it.”

“You wuz wrong Mr. Dunson.”

“You think I’m to blame for that?”

    I was hoping you’d posted the whole movie, though we do have it (I think) on DVD. It’s a long time favorite for both of us.
