  • DIRECTED? Leone's not known for DIRECTING. He's a WRITER!
  • Really? I thought people thought of him as this great Spaghetti western director or something.
  • Shows what you know. He only directed like nine things. And he wrote 16. Ergo, he's known for writing.
  • Well...
  • And that other thing? “The Good, The Bad and the Whatever” you talked about? I don't know where you get your movie knowledge. “Duck, You Sucker!” Now that's the ticket.

As the great man said in better circumstances: And it just continues...
