Richard Farnsworth: Buster
Sheriff John T. 'Buster' McCain : [Reading from one of the Misery books] There is a judge higher than that of man, I will be judged by Him.
Virginia McCain : [teasing Buster about a fake affair as she looks through the new Misery books] Well, whoever she is, she sure likes to read a lot.
Sheriff John T. 'Buster' McCain : Virginia, I'm flattered that you think I have that kind of energy. I figure that if I can't find Paul Sheldon, at least I'll find out what he wrote about.
Virginia McCain : Well, what do you expect to find? A story about a guy who drove his car off a cliff in a snowstorm?
Sheriff John T. 'Buster' McCain : You see, it's just that kind of sarcasm that's given our marriage real spice.
Virginia McCain : [Virginia and Buster are driving along the mountain road]
Virginia McCain : Well, this sure is fun.
[She later takes her hand and lovingly rubs Buster's leg]
Sheriff John T. 'Buster' McCain : [Buster is sensing what's going on] Virginia, when you're in this car, you're not my wife, you're my deputy.
[He takes her hand and puts it back on the steering wheel]
Virginia McCain : [Sarcastically] Well, this deputy would rather be home under the covers with the sheriff.
