Kansas Pacific (1953)
Cal Bruce: Someday, I'm going to take a ten pound sledge to that pipe... and I hope it's in your mouth when I do.
Smokestack: I've been waiting for you to try that for twenty-two years, you miserable Irish polecat.
Cal Bruce: You're fired!
Barbara Bruce: [resignedly] You're staying.
Cal Bruce: I guess old Smokestack's right this time. We've handled these diploma boys before, you know. He'll learn soon enough to stay out of our way.
Barbara Bruce: Well... alright. But you've got to promise me one thing. If this man turns out to be impossible, we're leaving. I'm not go to let anyone push you around.
Cal Bruce: Have you ever seen anyone push me around... except you and your mother?
Smokestack: It looks like we're already in the war everybody keeps talking about.
Capt. John Nelson: No, this is worse than war. In a war, at least you know who you're fighting.
