Fun Stuff

From High Sierra (1941)
Big Mac: [reading a newspaper in bed not realizing it's Roy and not 'Doc' Banton coming in] I got a swell parley for you tomorrow, 'Doc'.
Roy Earle: Still a sucker for the ponies eh?
Big Mac: [surprised] Hello Roy, old-timer!
Roy Earle: Hello Mac.
Big Mac: You're a sight for sore eyes.
Roy Earle: Yeah, I am sure glad to see you, too. Thanks for the spring. I was just getting ready for another crash-out. What's the matter, Mac?
Big Mac: I don't know. I can't eat. Just not hungry and I can't sleep. 'Doc' Banton says it's my past life catching up with me.
Roy Earle: 'Doc' Banton, is he out here now?
Big Mac: Yeah, I was expecting him when you came in. He's running one those health services under a phoney name. Help yourself to a drink. Well Roy, how does it look and what do you say?
Roy Earle: I can't see nothing wrong with it. If the boys don't blow up on me, it's a cinch. But Mac, it's gonna make an awful big noise in the newspaper.
