Quotes from

Stretch Willoughby: I'd advise you to get off your high horse and stop talkin' down to people, and the same goes for your smart-aleck friends here!
Oliver Wendell Henderson: I beg your pardon!
Stretch Willoughby: You know you don't give a hang what I think!

Abraham Lincoln didn't have to do that, and he turned out to be a pretty good President.


Horace Smith: Hannibal, sometimes I think you're in your second childhood!
Uncle Hannibal Smith: Well, come on in; the water's fine!
