Tough Talk 101: Gunsmoke, 'Kite's Reward', 12 November 1955.

"Listen, you. I've seen your kind before. You stand around in saloons suckin' up strong talk and cheap whiskey 'til you get the idea that you're a man. But don't let that fool ya. You came in here as nothin' and you go out as nothin'. And all the talk you hear and the whiskey you drink doesn't fill you out one little bit. Now get out of here. Go sit in the dark where you belong."

Matt Dillon (James Arness) greets Joe Kite (James Griffith), visitor to Dodge City, in Gunsmoke, 'Kite's Reward' 12 November 1955.
