Sheriff Edward Gideon, Blanc de Blanc: [drunkenly] You're absolutely right, Swiss. I'm a horse's ass. And... of all th' horse's asses in the world... you... are my real friend.
Blanc de Blanc: Now you're really beginnin' to make a little sense. But Black Jack, why did you choose the kind of existence that pays nothing and is full of danger? You got a house full of kids, and a woman who, exceptin' for the beard, could be the twin of Mochako.
Sheriff Edward Gideon: Mochako doesn't have a beard.
Blanc de Blanc: But Clementine has. Hey, look, we could both be rich, Black Jack. Rich, you hear? Let's open the box and divide up the money, huh? Think about it. Paris.

Sheriff Edward Gideon: The matter is, I can't remember which lock to open! An-and if we open the wrong lock...
[imitates explosion noises musically]
Blanc de Blanc: Very funny. Calm down, there are only three keyholes to choose from. Black, yellow and white. You gotta remember which one it is!
Sheriff Edward Gideon: [Despondently] With all that fire water you gave me to drink, I can't even remember my own name!
Blanc de Blanc: Your name is Black Jack! Now come on, now, open this damn box! Come on!
Sheriff Edward Gideon: I got it! Eenie, meenie, miney, mo, catch a...
[pauses, then points to the black lock]
Sheriff Edward Gideon: That's it!
[He kisses the key, and starts to try and insert the key into the black lock. Swiss stops him]
Blanc de Blanc: Hey, wait! Are you sure?
Sheriff Edward Gideon: Sure? No.
Blanc de Blanc: You're not just drunk! You're crazy!
[He gets up and leaves]
Blanc de Blanc: Let me out of this looney bin!
[Black Jack looks fit to cry]
Sheriff Edward Gideon: God damn it! The one time I decide to screw the law... I can't remember which lock to use!
