Famous quotes containing the word guy:

    The way I see it, God gave me the body, so I intend to use it. It’s a big ego trip.... You know, you look around a bar, you pick out a guy and you say, that’s the one: I’m going to take all of his money tonight.
    Teresa Beaty (b. c. 1975)

    Right now he’s suffering the cruelest tortures the Germans can devise. But he won’t talk—not as long as he can stand that punishment. And no human body can stand it too long—not even this wonderful, tough guy from Minnesota.
    John Monks, Jr., U.S. screenwriter, Sy Bartlett, and Henry Hathaway. Gibson (Frank Lattimore? Walter Abel? Melville Cooper?)

    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)
