[to his dying father]

Jonathan Reynolds Jr.: Oh, say, the fishing in Mexico - there's nothing like it. It's not really fishing... it's kind of big game hunting. They have fish with teeth and horns - a throwback to the buffalo. You go out in a boat and the fish charge at you. You just got to catch 'em in self-defense. You and I and two machine guns are going down there next month.
