William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson: Are you kidding with that thing?
Landry: No, I'm not kidding! What are they?
William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson: Well, they've never been anything but honorable, sir. Why?
Landry: She seems to have gotten herself smitten by you - a gambler.
Jenie Landry: But he's kind and sweet... and adorable.
William Barclay 'Bat' Masterson: That's very nice of you, Jeanie, but your're wrong. I'm false, unfaithful, with a wandering heart and restless feet. I'm worth about a tinker's toot.
