Larry: [chased by Mike’s thugs] Hey, Moe, I just got one of ’em. He was standing right here where you are.
Moe: Was he a short, fat fellow?
Larry: Yeah!
Moe: Dark hair?
Larry: Yeah!
Moe: [taking Larry’s weapon] Did you hit him with that?
Larry: Yeah!
Moe: [hits him on the head with it] That was me!

Larry: Hey, that smells good. You got an extra cigar?
Big Mike: Sure, fellas, have a cigar.
