Bite the Bullet

Staying takes even more money.
I got a month's pay coming.
A hot bath costs $5.
I guess I just won't bathe.
It takes $15 just to get drunk.
I'm going to stay sober.
$30 for an all-night woman.
Seventy miles in six hours?
Could he go 100 miles
every day for a week?

That might be enough to win this race.
I came 5,000 miles to try it.
-To beat the best.

You must be either rich or crazy.
A little of both, I'm afraid.
I came 3,000 miles for the Kentucky Derby.
Another 2,000
to see Joe Gans box Battling Nelson.

Forty-two fantastic rounds.
It was bloody marvellous.

-You know who won?
-I'm not interested.

Not interested in who won?
That's not only unbelievable...

:22:22's positively un-American.
What does interest you?

Right now? Just a job.
What did Parker pay you?
$50 a month? $60?

You win this race,
and you'll get three years' pay.

What's the horse get out of it? Colic?
Cracked bones?
You ever see a horse run himself dead just
to please the man on his back? What for?

-Get his picture in the paper? For glory?
-Some men live for it.

Horse don't give a damn who wins a race.
Me, neither.
