'Red': That's a good one , that is.
Louis Mendoza: What's so funny?
'Red': [Sarcastically says] Does he know how to work it?
Roy Earle: Yeah. Say, you know that gun reminds me of one time, 9 or 10yrs ago. We was getting ready to do a job back in Iowa... when one of the guys got the shakes.

Lefty Jackson goes out and gets his gun. He comes back and sits down and holds it across his knee.
[Roy positions himself in front of Mendoza and lays on top of the machine gun case looking straight at Mendoza without blinking]
Roy Earle: The guy with shakes is sitting right across the room from him.
[Points at Mendoza]
