Famous quotes containing the word guy:

    We’ve got to figure these things a little bit different than most people. Y’know, there’s something about going out in a plane that beats any other way.... A guy that washes out at the controls of his own ship, well, he goes down doing the thing that he loved the best. It seems to me that that’s a very special way to die.
    Dalton Trumbo (1905–1976)

    Maggio: Just hate to see a good guy get it in the gut.
    Corporal Buckley: You’d better get used to it, kid. You’ll probably see a lot of it before you die.
    Daniel Taradash (b. 1913)

    A grifter’s got an irresistible urge to be the guy who’s wise. There’s nothin’ to whipping a fool. Hell, fools are made to be whipped. But to take another pro. Even your partner, who knows you and has his eye on you. That’s a score! No matter what happens.
    Donald E. Westlake (b. 1933)
