I see you licking that ice,

you're gonna get sick.

I want you to go play, go!

Next time, I'll glue your lips to this

and carry you away.

You're lucky it was just a horse

that got killed.

I mean, jumping off a train bridge

was suicide, too.

And if you were trying to impress her...

Sinclair already did a better job.

You know, the actor,

- the leading man.

- I know who he is.

Every cloud has a silver lining,

that's for sure.

Take another card.

- You know, before my accident...

- That is the Queen of Hearts.

...nothing was happening for me.

Now I've had my leg hacked off by savages,

mangled by chariots,

sawed off by lumberjacks.

Hell, I've even had a harpoon through it.

I'm working all the time.

That is the two of spades.

- The studio is just trying to do right by you.

- Excuse me, Mr. Sabatini.

Take the money.

Anyway, gags are not for you, Roy.

You're a college man.

Wasn't me.

One cripple to another...

I didn't throw orange at you. woman is worth suicide.

Like the guy's a movie star, for chrissake.

Was your friend a pirate?

Was your friend a pirate?


Is that how he hurt his leg?

No, he... He does tricks for pictures.

You know, flickers.

Moving pictures.

- I never seen one.

- You're not missing much.

Is that what you do, like your friend?

Just once.

Will you tell me the story now?

- What story?

- The epic.

All right.

All right, close your eyes.

What do you see?


Rub them.

Can you see the stars?


It was a starry night.

Four men waited impatiently

on a small island

surrounded by a calm sea.

But that calmness was deceptive.

For at that moment

an Indian with a bandaged thigh

swam towards them.

Tell me, Indian.

Is it true?

Luigi, is what true?

Governor Odious will execute
