Who Is Cletis Tout?

"The Shootist,"
Warner Brothers, 1976.

Hey, look,
killing's a business.

The truth is,
they all deserved it.

Hey, I have a reputation.
I clean up people's
dirty little secrets.

When that pager rings
that mean you're going
to kill me?

"Haven't you learned the rules
"of probability and outcomes?
"Aren't you aware
that every question

"of life or death
remains a probability
until the outcome?"

"Heaven can wait." Paramount.
Have you ever been
to a movie?

Tell me more about the girl.
Well, we hadn't spoken
in about a week.

I tried to contact her
after Micah died

but she'd have nothing of it.
So, I checked in here
at the gladstone.

Couldn't get the old man's
voice out of my head.

Four years I spent with him
and all I could think about was
the last thing he said to me.

"Take care of her."
I can't even take care
of myself.

And then it hit me.
I think I know how
to find the diamonds.

What? I thought we
could partner up on this thing.

You know, I mean,
split it 50/50.

Honor among thieves and all.
Don't let me into your group.
You're the superhero of crime.
You're the one with the big "C"
on his chest, remember?

Obviously, you do.
Iook, I'm not splitting anything
with you 50/50.

Do you know why?
Because there should be
some sort of a clause

a jiggins clause.
Do you know
what a jiggins is?

It's a congenital idiot,
a mongoloid.

So, every time
you do something stupid

every time
you give me the jiggins

I take five percent.
