Movie Quote of the Day – The Magnificent Seven, 1960 (dir. John Sturges)
Calvera: What I don’t understand is why a man like you took the job in the first place, hmm? Why, huh?
Chris: I wonder myself.
Calvera: No, come on, come on, tell me why.
Vin: It’s like a fellow I once knew in El Paso. One day, he just took all his clothes off and jumped in a mess of cactus. I asked him that same question, “Why?”
Vin: He said, “It seemed to be a good idea at the time.”
