Cool Hand Luke- Opening Scene
[Why he was cutting the heads off parking meters]
Luke: Small town, not much to do in the evenin'.
Most people don't remember that this was actually a story about a Korean War Veteran and the way society treated PTSD back then. A Cool Hand was when you were holding nothing at all.
[Luke won a game of poker on a bluff]
Dragline: Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
Luke: Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.
Boss: Sorry, Luke. I'm just doing my job. You gotta appreciate that.
Luke: Nah - calling it your job don't make it right, Boss.
Captain, Road Prison 36: What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.
