From Big Jake (1971)
James McCandles: I am moved by your faith in someone you haven't seen since he was sixteen years old, Daddy!
Jacob 'Big Jake' McCandles: Daddy?
James McCandles: Daddy.
Jacob 'Big Jake' McCandles: Well, son; since you don't have any respect for your elders, it's time somebody taught you some respect for your betters!

James McCandles: Why, if you weren't my father...
Jacob 'Big Jake' McCandles: Go ahead. I give you leave.
