Quotes

Gene Autry: I take it your having a little dry spell around here.
Sheriff Chill Wills: Dry? It's so dry you can't even raise potatoes!
Gene Autry: You could if you plant onions between the rows.
Sheriff Chill Wills: Now wait a minute, I know every rain making trick in the books, but I never heard of that one. How's it work?
Gene Autry: Well, it's very simple. Potatoes have eyes. You plant onions between the rows, to onions grow up, the eyes of the potatoes start crying, you got all the potatoes you need.
