Who doesn't love Slim Pickens? You're not a real American, then.

Taggart: God darnit, Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore.

Taggart: *LePetomaine Thruway*? Now what'll that asshole think of next?
[turns to the posse]
Taggart: Has anybody got a dime?
[henchmen grumble, search their pockets]
Taggart: Somebody's gotta go back and get a shit-load of dimes!

Just recorded Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid on TCM last night. Slim has a great death scene done to Dylan's Knockin On Heavens Door.

Soon after he died, one of the cavemen in the "B.C." comic strip visited the dictionary for the definition of "Slim Pickens". Basically it was "A very funny name for a man we all miss very much."
