BOB LEE SWAGGER
Suppose I was looking for man who could make a 2200 yard cold bore shot, who's alive that could do that?
MR. RATE
Seems I heard about a shot like that being made not too long ago, said the guy's name was Bob Lee Swagger. Never met the man, so I wouldn't know.
BOB LEE SWAGGER
Ya, they said that alright.
MR. RATE
They also said that artificial sweeteners were safe, WMDs were in Iraq and Anna Nicole married for love.

That's how a conspiracy works. Them boys on the Grassy Knoll they were dead within three hours, buried in the damned desert, unmarked graves out past Terlingua.
NICK MEMPHIS
You know this for a fact?
MR. RATE
Still got the shovel...
