[discussing Thompson's vocation as a bounty hunter
I always wanted to meet a man in your line - you're inside the law, yet you're outside it.
Nothin' to it, Bill. Marshals and sheriffs, they can't operate beyond their own boundaries. You know that. Say, you got a cup? Have some coffee. I wore a badge once. Lets say I got tired of short pay and those boundaries... tired of seein' killers get away with murder.
I wonder which one bothers you the most - the short money or the killers getting away.
