Now let run through

the modern presidents.

What good is this history

crap going to do me?

Just do the Presidents.

Oh, God...Eisenhower, Truman..

Truman, Eisenhower

Kennedy, Johnson,

Nixon...Kennedy, Kennedy...

Your continued

narrow-minded refusal to believe in

Over The Hill, is possibly

costing us a better life, you know.

Over The Hill, my ass.

Well when do we

start looking for it again?

Soon as I get my heart started?

I mean let's stop the crap..

I know what you mean, over the hill

where the deer and the antelope play.

and it's warm and clean and

we can relax and have fun

Man, they grow food right out of

the ground, how do

like that pipe dream?

It's called farming.

Oh, I believe you. And they also have a

great crop of clothes and

guns and gorgeous chicks.

Now you're gonna tell me how so saw

the whole thing with your baby blues.

Never said I saw,

I said I heard about it.

And from who?

From whom, and

you know from whom.

And whom the hell's gonna

believe a police dog?

I'm sorry Blood.

I believe you about Over the Hill.

Hell, I believe anything you tell me.

and even if we don't know for

sure, it's worth checking, right?


Whatever you say.

We will go, just like I promised.

Right now I'm hungry

and I wanna get laid.

So find me a broad and we'll

go to the promised land.

That's what you always say.

I know, I know, but

I mean it this time.

Find me a chick and we'll go.

I'm hungry.

So am I!

I tell you what. You go find a

chick and I'll hustle us up some food.

I'm hungry.

You already said that, God

damn it and I just said...

I can't do good

work when I'm hungry.

You ain't pulling

that crap on me again.

And you shove that part
