Livingston: Come look at this?

Basher: Hang on a minute chief.
Livingston: We don't have a minute, Yen's gonna suffocate.
Basher: Then you'd better leave off bothering me, don't you think?

Ten oughta do it, don't you think? You think we need one more? You think we need one more. All right, we'll get one more.


Rusty: You'd need at least a dozen guys doing a combination of cons.
