Quote: Rusty Thomas (John Wayne) to Kit about beetles in Without Reservation (1946): ' They're very cute to look at but you've got to keep an eye on them. They make-out that everything is alright , that they have no angle , that they just want a good-time . Then, the first thing you know , you find them crawling around. They get in your hair, climb into your pockets and they give you mental fatigue .'
