Quotes from Jason Robards's Characters

    1. Joshua: Funny thing... it doesn't matter how much or how little you've wandered around...how many women you've been with. Every once in awhile, one of them cuts right through. Right straight into you.
    2. Cable Hogue: What do you do about it?
    3. Joshua: I suppose maybe when you die you get over it.
    From The Ballad of Cable Hogue. Submitted by Alexandar T (16 months ago)
