Fun Stuff

From Chisum (1970)
Henry Tunstall: John, I want to thank you for taking care of William.
John Simpson Chisum: [chuckles] No, not me, Sally.
Henry Tunstall: She's a wonderful girl, she's a worthwhile lamb.
John Simpson Chisum: Oh yeah, Henry, according to you, everybody's worthwhile.
Henry Tunstall: God's children, John. Oh, William reminds me of someone.
John Simpson Chisum: A black sheep in the family, no doubt.
Henry Tunstall: No, a young chap I never even talked to. Years ago in England this man very much like William killed a man in some senseless brawl. And I watched that young man walk to the gallows. And I saw him hang. Ghastly sight. There was nothing I could do to help that young lad.
