Jesse Heywood: [very drunk and slurring] I got on a romance track. Then I got on a gunslinger's track. I gotta get back on that dentist's track!

Jesse Heywood: [drunk] Failure, failure, failure, failure, failure, failure, failure. That's the story of my life, you know. Two things have always been my downfall - I have always been the most failure of anybody, and I'm too thin.

Saloon Girl: [drunk] But I don't think you're too thin.

Jesse Heywood: Ah, it's all bloat. Bloated thin failure! That's me.

[waggles both of his thumbs at himself]

Saloon Girl: I think you're wonderful. I just love a man that can't make his mark in life.

Jesse Heywood: Uhuh Penny, uhuh Penny, she's really something, you know that?

[looks at saloon girl questioningly]

Saloon Girl: [nods affirmatively] Uhuh.

Jesse Heywood: You know she used me. She tricked me.

[tearfully]

Jesse Heywood: She made me think that she loved me.

Saloon Girl: [shakes her head sympathetically] Ohhh...

Jesse Heywood: I should have known better.

[tearfully]

Jesse Heywood: Nobody ever loved me. Did you know I had to take my own cousin to the graduation dance?

Saloon Girl: [shakes her head sympathetically and tearfully] Ohhhhhhhhhh...

Jesse Heywood: I threw up on her dress.

Saloon Girl: [slurring] You are really my kind of guy.
