Roy Dillon:
Do I get any say in this?
Myra Langtry:
No! Because...
Roy Dillon:
That's what I say. What I say is no. We don't do partners.
Myra Langtry:
[Myra is hurt and confused]
What is it? What's goin' on? Why don't you wanna team up?
Roy Dillon:
The BEST reason I can think of is that you scare the hell out of me. I have seen women like you before, baby. You're double-tough and you are sharp as a razor, and you get what you want or else; but you don't make it work forever. Sooner or later the lightning hits, and I'm not gonna be around when it hits you.
