The clip The right way to get law and order from Destry Rides Again (1939) with James Stewart, Charles Winninger
And now!!! You fooled me!
Well, you will fool 'em, Wash!
We'll fool 'em together!
The only way to do that is fill 'em full of lead! No, no!
You shoot it out with 'em and for some reason or other, I don't know why,
they get to look like heroes!
But you put 'em behind bars and they'll look little and cheap,
the way they oughta look!
And it serves as a warnin' for the rest of'em to keep away!
Oh, that won't work here in Bottleneck!
You go on home,
and I'll go back to bein' the town drunk!
That's all I'm good for! Now, you're not goin' back to bein' the town drunk,
and I'm gonna stay here and do this job I come for!
My pa did it the old way, and I'm gonna do it a new way!
And if I don't prove to you that I'm right,
I'll get outta town quick enough! Don't worry!
But first, you got to give me a chance, Wash! No!
You've got to give me a chance on this thing! No, no!
Now, come on! Come on, swear me in, Sheriff!
Well, raise your right hand! Yeah, there!
Do you, Thomas Jefferson Destry,
swear to uphold the law,
and serve your office and do your duty and everything that goes with it?
I do! I do!
Here's your badge!
Don't let anybody see it!
