    ...where the gang gets to a spot to start dividing up the loot from a robbery, and the bags they thought were full of money contain only washers.  And that plays out like this:

    Tector Gorch: Silver rings.

    Dutch Engstrom: [upset] "Silver rings", your butt! Them's washers! Damn!

    Lyle Gorch: Washers. Washers. We shot our way out of that town for a dollar's worth of steel holes!

    Pike Bishop: They set it up.

    Lyle Gorch: "They"? Who in the hell is "they?"

    Sykes: [laughs hysterically] "They"? Why, they is the plain and fancy they, that's who "they" is! Caught you, didn't they? Tied a tin can to your tail. Led you in and waltzed you out again. Oh my, what a bunch! Big tough ones, huh? Here you are with a handful of holes, a thumb up your ass, and a big grin to pass the time of day with!

    That's Ted Cruz.  A handful of holes, a thumb up his ass, and a big grin.
