The clip sheriff try to convince the governor Part 2 from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982) No reason except the goddamn cries... ...of a muckrakin' sensationalist on television. Here they are, Governor. What you've been waitin' for. Oh, I'm sorry, Ed Earl. The Chicken Ranch loses, 42 to 37, with 21% undecided. What is that? The polls. You can't expect me to go against the polls. Melvin still outside? Maybe I can catch the cameras. Good seein' ya. But it's not what my people want. Show's over, Sheriff. Close it down!

The clip sheriff try to convince the governor from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982) Governor? I have Sheriff Dodd from Gilbert waiting outside to see you. He's been here since early this morning and is very insistent. Swearin' Sheriff Dodd? The one on TV? No, no, no, no... Hi, Sheriff! Just talkin' about you. How are ya? Governor, I know I'm way outta line comin' up here... ...but before you close the Chicken Ranch you must know the facts. I haven't made that decision! My aides are workin' on that. Well, the Chicken Ranch has been in my county since before I was born. Its doors have been open to soldiers and presidents and farmers. Even governors who can remember what a great institution it is. No need to bring that up. I ain't threatenin' you. Whatever you say, I'll do. But think of the people. I've known Miss Mona for 12 years. You'll never meet a finer woman. She never refuses a charity. The whole town likes her. Hospital fund, new swimmin' pool, even the Little Leaguers. She bought 'em uniforms so they wouldn't have to play in their overalls. Well... I wasn't aware of her civic generosity. But the law is the law! Sometimes it's gotta be changed. I been fightin' crime all my life, but let's not confuse crime with sin. You can't legislate morality. Those girls have never caused any trouble. They're healthy, taxpayin', law-abidin' citizens... ...who supply a demand and provide an economic asset to the community. Whew! Ed Earl! You ever think about runnin' for office? Huh? I swear, you make that whorehouse sound like a damn nonprofit recreational facility. Governor, if the citizens who elected me found it necessary to close it down... ...I would close it down. If Miss Mona and the girls that work for her... ...were jeopardisin' the health or morals of the community... ...I would close it down. If the place was just a piddlin' nuisance, an eyesore, a fire hazard... ...I would close it down! But there's nothin'!
