    I really liked so many things he worked on. What an amazing career.

    This is a brilliantly written scene... in 2 minutes, it establishes an incredible amount about the characters and the relationship between Butch and Sundance. I mean, you don't even need to see any more of the movie to know so much about them!

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    The novel is weirdly overlooked, but also excellent. Really clever construction and a lot of fun self-referential humor. I recommend it.

    Did anyone check to see if he was only "mostly dead"?

    That immediately brought back another memorable line from one of his movies...

    Sundance --- I can't swim!
    Butch -- Are you crazy? The fall will probably kill you.

    I quoted him late in the game last night, looking at who we had playing defense after Humphreys was hurt:

    Who are those guys?
