Virginia McCain: [talking to Jim Taylor] No, he's not here. I don't know where he is, he never tells me anything any more. Probably out having an affair somewhere. [Buster walks in] Virginia McCain: Oh, here he is. [hands Buster phone] Virginia McCain: It's Jim Taylor, he wants to know who you're having an affair with.
Virginia McCain: Well, whoever she is, she sure likes to read a lot. Sheriff John T. 'Buster' McCain: Virginia, I'm flattered that you think I have that kind of energy. I figure that if I can't find Paul Sheldon, at least I'll find out what he wrote about. Virginia McCain: Well, what do you expect to find? A story about a guy who drove his car off a cliff in a snowstorm? Sheriff John T. 'Buster' McCain: You see, it's just that kind of sarcasm that's given our marriage real spice.
