Carroll O'Connor Quotes:

Truckstop hitchhiker: Hey, you're not going to Ciffeyville, Kansas, are you?
Hinton: No, I'm haulin' privies to Duke City, New Mexico.
Truckstop hitchhiker: You're haulin' what?
Hinton: Privies!
[Pointing to a depiction of toilet bowls on the side of his semi]
Hinton: A hundred and fifty-six privies. High-tailin' down the road at 70 miles an hour. How do like that? What kind of emergency do you suppose they got in Duke City, New Mexico?


[discussing Frank Patch]
Lester Locke: There's that mayor over there drumming up a meeting with all those rich and proper jackasses - hollering and shouting around, quoting some stupid law or bylaw. Then they'll all go stomping down to the jailhouse, take a look at God Almighty, then he'll take one good look back at 'em, and they'll all wet their britches and go on home.
