Jason Robards Quotes:

Cheyenne: [of Harmonica] He not only plays. He can shoot too.


Murray Burns: If things aren't funny then they're exactly what they are; and then they're like a long dental appointment.


Jill: If you want to, you can lay me over the table and amuse yourself. And even call in your men. Well. No woman ever died from that. When you're finished, all I'll need will be a tub of boiling water, and I'll be exactly what I was before - with just another filthy memory.
Cheyenne: [sighs] You make good coffee, at least?
