Doug Adams made it look so easy, with his extraordinary wit and ability to concoct a phrase. I put him in the pantheon with the likes of Twain, Wilde, Waugh, et al.

I just remember how his too-friendly bond with Moe Green, in GFI, kind of set up the character arc....how his weaknesses might lead to his demise in a sequel. And Michael, in GFI, sees Vegas as so corrupting in a way that's at odds with the NYC business model and the Corleone style. "Get rid of the girls," etc. Now I'm curious, will have to see GFII again.

Character 2: If I gave you any thought I probably would.
Related, in a way, but not the same film:
Character 1: You always have a very smooth explanation ready.
Character 2: What do you want me to do, learn to stutter?
