Or could've been with Ray at the Ft Worth cattle auction when Punk showed up.
from Kenny Coyote: Who said "That stretches the imagination a bit too far"
It's been a long time. Tell me if I should give a hint.
Maybe hold off until tomorrow afternoon to see if someone comes up with it.
"Call yourself a soldier? What kind of soldier hides behind a little boy?"
I think it was earlier in the episode, same setting as this 'real power is something you take' scene.
I love how the person who uploaded this to YouTube put '(famous)' at the end of the title!
JR, to BD Calhoun attempting to rescue John Ross.
Who said "That stretches the imagination a bit too far"
(Kenny...hint please...this is a tough one!)
OK. This is from a major storyline that revolved around Jenna. Middle years of Dallas.
This is a serious scene, but it is comical to watch if you've seen the Naked Gun movies. Precilla Presley is in a comedy role in those movies, and even though it is a comedy, there are a lot of scenes involving guns because Presley is dating a detective.
So it's hard to take this Dallas scene seriously, since it involves a gun and Precilla Presley. But this is the scene that Kenny Coyote is referring to:
Jenna Wade is on the witness stand and Scott Demarest is the lawyer. He shows a gun to the jury and says,
"This is a very complicated weapon, and yet the prosecution wants you to believe that under the effects of chloroform, this little lady here can grab it away from a man bigger, stronger than she, find the safety, release it, shoot it, before he could stop her? I don’t think so. I don’t think anyone with any common sense would think so. That stretches the imagination a bit too far."
Here's a line that I really like for some reason. Guess who said this to Clayton Farlow:
Clayton: I'm not just disappointed, I've been betrayed
(other character): Betrayed? Hmm... By a woman?
Clayton: How did you know that it was a woman?
(other character): Well, I don't think many men would dare betray you.
Who was the person who spoke that to Clayton?
The Naked Gun also features George Kennedy (Carter McKay)... who featured in Cool Hand Luke with Morgan Woodward (Punk Anderson). Hollywood was a small world!
And any episode featuring legendary trial attorney Scotty Demarest was automatically an entertaining one. The older character actors for the first several years were usually tremendous!
Speaking of Carter Mckay, this one is tricky because it's not from the original series, but from one of the movies a few years later.
Mckay is talking about his plans with Westar. His comment, "This is part of the long range plan I promised my board."
Later that same movie, Carter is is told,
"Your long range plan just fell on it's ass."
BWHAHAHAHAHA! I try to use that every chance I get.
Who said it?
You nailed it Last Kid! Good job!
Yes! That's why I chose that line. I thought Scotty Demerest was great. I always thought: If I were on trial I'd want someone like him representing me. Whenever someone was in legal trouble and it was announced Scotty Demerest would be their lawyer, suddenly everyone would feel a lot better about their chances in court. He was smart and he had an air of authority about him that he just really know what was doing. Great actor, whoever his name was. You're right Taylor, the character actors in the early and middle years were usually tremendous.
Miss Ellie! He was referring to Sue Ellen letting him down and disappointing him by asking if he would refine JR's oil to help him win the contest for Ewing Oil.
Who said this:
"You've got a lot of pride...and when you get right down to it, that's all a man can take to his grave"
Folks, Kenny Coyote just gave us a quote from one of the best episodes ever. Does that quote sound like it came out of an old time Western? Well, that whole episode is much like an old time western, including a good old bar fight.
Since I jumped in too early up above, I'll step back, enjoy a bourban and branch, and allow the others to guess who spoke that line.
Jock to Tom Owens in "The Dove Hunt".
"The Ewings have a habit of marrying the same person once, don't they?"
Guess who said it:
"You´re guilty of Mama´s accident, and I´m gonna make you pay!" (too easy I´m afraid)
I think it was 'twice', not 'once'. Was Pam lamenting her losing Bobby to Jenna just before she got him back.
Yeah....Katherine W to Cliff.
Here's another easy one...
"You are a genuine little stinker"
Mitch to Lucy, in a line worthy of one of the finest TV romances of the 20th century!
A silly one that I like to post from time to time:
(individual surrounded by cops, who have just ordered him/her to freeze) “You freeze, turkeys!”
I think that was the guy who had taken Lucy hostage in the first season.
