You know something, Verna, if I turn my back for long enough for Big Ed to put a hole in it, there'd be a hole in it.
Referring to his treacherous second in command.
Big Ed ... great big Ed. Y'know why they call 'im that? 'Cause his ideas are big. One day he's gonna get a really big one ... about me. And it'll be his last.
I told you to stay away from that radio. If that battery's dead, it'll have company.
Verna Jarrett: I'd look good in a mink coat, honey.
Cody Jarrett: You'd look good in a shower curtain.
Verna: Cody, my radio won't work.
Cody: Whuddya want for it, unemployment insurance?
Cody Jarrett: A copper, a copper. How do you like that, boys? A copper and his name is Fallon. And we went for it, I went for it. Treated him like a kid brother. And I was gonna split fifty-fifty with a copper!
Hank Fallon: Come on get up, get your hands up!
Cody Jarrett: Maybe they're waiting to pin a medal on 'im. [This is an allusion to a previous exchange in prison.]
Hank Fallon: Solid gold!
Cody Jarrett: Yeah, that's it, a nice gold medal for the copper. Only maybe he's gonna get it sooner than he thinks!
