    George: You know, this used to be a helluva good country. I can't understand what's gone wrong with it.
    Billy: Huh. Man, everybody got chicken, that's what happened, man. Hey, we can't even get into like, uh, second-rate hotel, I mean, a second-rate motel. You dig? They think we're gonna cut their throat or something, man. They're scared, man.
    George: Oh, they're not scared of you. They're scared of what you represent to 'em.
    Billy: Hey man. All we represent to them, man, is somebody needs a haircut.
    George: Oh no. What you represent to them is freedom.
    Billy: What the hell's wrong with freedom, man? That's what it's all about.
    George: Oh yeah, that's right, that's what it's all about, all right. But talkin' about it and bein' it - that's two different things. I mean, it's real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. 'Course, don't ever tell anybody that they're not free 'cause then they're gonna get real busy killin' and maimin' to prove to you that they are. Oh yeah, they're gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom, but they see a free individual, it's gonna scare 'em.
    Billy: Mmmm, well, that don't make 'em runnin' scared.
    George: No, it makes 'em dangerous. Nik, nik, nik, nik, nik, nik, nik, nik - Swamp.

        Just Think Of It

        Customer 1: You know, I thought at first that bunch over there, their mothers had maybe been frightened by a bunch of gorillas, but now I think they were caught.
        Customer 2: I know one of them's Alley-oop - I think. From the beads on him.
        Customer 4: Well, one of them darned sure is not Oola.
        Customer 1: Look like a bunch of refugees from a gorilla love-in.
        Customer 2: A gorilla couldn't love that.
        Customer 1: Nor could a mother.
        Customer 3: I'd love to mate him up with one of those black wenches out there.
        Customer 4: Oh, now I don't know about that.
        Customer 3: Well, that's about as low as they come. I'll tell ya...Man, they're green.
        Customer 4: No, they're not green, they're white.
        Customer 3: White? Huh!
        Customer 4: Uh-huh.
        Customer 3: Man, you're color blind. I just gotta say that...
        Customer 1: I don't know. I thought most jails were built for humanity, and that won't quite qualify.
        Customer 2: I wonder where they got those wigs from.
        Customer 1: They probably grew 'em. It looks like they're standin' in fertilizer. Nothin' else would grow on 'em...
        Customer 3: I saw two of them one time. They were just kissin' away. Two males. Just think of it.
