“So why is a good looking guy like you still single?”  Josh shook his head and looked her straight in the eye.  “You really want to know?” She nodded, leaning forward. “Let me put it this way. It’s hard to kiss the lips at night that chew your ass out all day long!” He quickly ducked as the lamp barely missed his head.” Bad Company

“The gods do not deduct from man’s allotted span the hours spent in fishing.” Bad Company

“Like I always say, you can get more done with a kind word and a gun than with a kind word alone.” Almost Perfect

“I just love a solid American made fly reel. Especially when it hits a thug’s skill dead center.” Bad Company

“For an asshole he’s pretty well balanced. He’s got a chip on both shoulders.” Almost Perfect

“She looks like she’s been ridden hard and put away wet.” Business as Usual

“Everyone thinks you’re an asshole, Matt. And right now I agree with them. You are smart and hard working, but no one likes you. They tolerate you because you make money for them. Is that the legacy you want to leave in this world? Is that the kind of father you want for your child?” Almost Perfect
