Sheriff, why don't you wait until after Christmas to lock Charlie up? He's a man of his word, he won't run out on you.
You double dog right he won't. He's going to jail.
Christmas ain't no time to be locking a man up in that old, drafty jail of yours. I could die of pneumonia before morning. You want that on your conscience that I died of pneumonia on Christmas?
You should've given that some thought while you was stealing them turkeys and hams.
