Louis Mendoza (Character)
from High Sierra (1941)
'Red': I almost forgot, Mendoza brought us a present and Roy, I guess you're the engineer. Here.
[Hands Roy the machine-gun case]
Louis Mendoza: Big Mac gave me the machine gun. You know how to work it? Red doesn't, and neither does Babe.
'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. Pretty soon we found out that this guy with the shakes had talked too much... and a bunch of coppers were waiting for us at the bank. But we don't say nothing. 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]
