Dead Man's Gun (1997 TV Movie)
Norbert Datry: A kingsnake eats nothing but other snakes... preferably rattlesnakes. That is his sole diet. You see, it would go against my nature to cheat an honest man. But the other kind... I sleep like a baby!
Jack Fleetwood: Did you ever go fishing, Norbert?
Norbert Datry: Sure, lots of times. I'm good at fishing.
Jack Fleetwood: All right. If you want to catch a fish, you have to think like one. You have to think, where would I be hiding? Gold mining is like that. You have to think like what you want to find... and ask yourself, "If I was gold, where would I be hiding" - and look there!
Jack Fleetwood: Try to understand, Norbert, finding gold isn't the hard part.
Norbert Datry: It's not?
Jack Fleetwood: No, the hard part is keeping it.
Harry McDonacle: You don't know it, but you're about to witness a legend being made.
Brittany: You look the same to me.
Cole: Maybe I am different. But I beat those men. It's not the gun... it's me.
Narrator: In the American West, a gun touched by evil passed from hand to hand, changing the lives of all who possessed it. As its legend grew, it became known as... "the dead man's gun".
Willy: Like I said before, Cole, ain't no good can come from a dead man's gun. Get rid of it! Throw it away!
Cole: For him, not me!
Palmer Lewis: I cannot in good conscience allow myself to be party to this deception.
Jack Fleetwood: How much?
Palmer Lewis: I beg your pardon?
Jack Fleetwood: How much is your conscience going to cost me?
Brittany: Aren't you supposed to be married?
Harry McDonacle: Forbidden fruit always tastes the sweetest.
Brittany: What about you wife?
Harry McDonacle: What about her? She stuck with me when I was nobody. She has faith in me. She's kind... loyal.
Brittany: If that's all you want, Harry, why not get a dog?
Flagg: None of us knows the future, Willy. A man has to grasp his opportunities as they come.
Narrator: Harry McDonacle is a small-time character with a big-time ambition... an ego in search of a career.
Dobbs: My dear, in life it doesn't pay to examine anything too closely. You'll find that even the most perfect rose has a blemish.
Willy: This ain't much of a town. It's only got one saloon here.
Cole: It don't matter. That's all we got money for.
Brittany: Harry, what are you doing? He's just a boy!
Harry McDonacle: Well, if he's this stupid, he's not going to grow up to be a man, now is he?
