Great line.

This reminds me of one of John Woo's trademarks, appearing in A Better Tomorrow among other movies, in which a gunman hides pistols along his way into a confrontation. As he, usually Chow Yun-Fat, empties his weapon (which, in a Woo film, means he has shot all 150 bullets in the six-shooter), he picks up a strategically placed replacement. Tsui Hark did a hilarious parody of this in Chinese Feast -- a gunman has forgotten where he hid his guns; he keeps placing his hands in boiling pots as he frantically searches for them during a shootout in a restaurant.
