Quotes:
From Destry Rides Again (1939)
Jack Tyndall: I ain't one of your weak-livered citizens that busts out cryin' every time you snap your fingers and I ain't gonna pay Kent's fancy prices. Now whaddaya aim to do about it?
Tom Destry Jr.: Nothin' at present.
Jack Tyndall: That's what I thought. Well, I'll get somethin' done about it if I have to take the law in my own hands!
Tom Destry Jr.: Nobody's gonna set themselves up above the law around here, ya understand? I got somethin' to say to you. I think maybe I could illustrate it a little better if I told you a story: I used to have a friend that was an opera singer. Then he went into the cement business - and one day he fell into the cement. And now he's the cornerstone of the post office in St. Louis, Missouri. He shoulda stuck to his own trade. You better stick to yours.
