"This guy's a couple cans short of a six-pack!"
"Wash day tomorrow! Nothing clean, right?"
"How about a nice, greasy pork sandwich served in a dirty ash tray?"
"Start talkin', little man!"
"Sorry for being such a... shit to you all these years."
"How do I get outta this chickenshit outfit?"
"Stop yer grinnin' and drop yer linen! Found 'em!"
"Game over, man! Game over!"
"Whyn'ch'a' put her in charge?"
"Ass like a ten-year-old boy!"
"I'm nothing. I'm navel lint! I have to lie to women to get laid, and I don't score much. I got a little dick—it's pathetic!"
When it came to shit-eating grins, Paxton pretty much cornered the market, but he proved capable of handling serious roles, such as that of astronaut Fred Haise in Apollo 13. I never saw A Simple Plan, but I heard that he did a fine job in that drama, too. By most accounts, Paxton was also a mensch in real life, so it's a shame to know that he's gone. RIP.
