Destry Rides Again (1939) Poster

Jack Carson: Jack Tyndall



  • Janice Tyndall : Please don't mind my brother, Mr. Destry. He's always threatening to blow people's heads off.

    Tom Destry Jr. : I had - I had a friend once. His name was Stubbs. He was always going around threatening to blow people's heads off. One day a fella came along and took him up on it.

    Jack Tyndall : Well?

    Tom Destry Jr. : Well, folks say that now Stubbs' forehead is holding up the prettiest tombstone in Greenlawn Cemetery.

  • Jack Tyndall : I ain't one of your weak-livered citizens that busts out cryin' every time you snap your fingers and I ain't gonna pay Kent's fancy prices. Now whaddaya aim to do about it?

    Tom Destry Jr. : Nothin' at present.

    Jack Tyndall : That's what I thought. Well, I'll get somethin' done about it if I have to take the law in my own hands!

    Tom Destry Jr. : Nobody's gonna set themselves up above the law around here, ya understand? I got somethin' to say to you. I think maybe I could illustrate it a little better if I told you a story: I used to have a friend that was an opera singer. Then he went into the cement business - and one day he fell into the cement. And now he's the cornerstone of the post office in St. Louis, Missouri. He shoulda stuck to his own trade. You better stick to yours.

  • Washington Dimsdale : Lily Belle, maybe Destry knows what he's a-doin'.

    Lily Belle : It's time the decent people of this town joined up and got rid of them hoodlums!

    Jack Tyndall : Well, you better start in with that watery-eyed sheriff and that gun-shy, lady-fingered, deputy of his!

  • Jack Tyndall : Are you women crazy? Get back!

    Kent : Get outta the way, you women!

    Boris : Get back! Get back!
