    - Woodrow F. Call: And if that ain't bad enough you got all them Greek words on there, too.
    - Augustus 'Gus' McCrae: I told you, Woodrow, a long time ago it ain't Greek, it's Latin.
    - Woodrow F. Call: Well what does it say in Latin?
    - Augustus 'Gus' McCrae: Well, it's a motto. It just says itself “uva uvam vivendo varia fit”
    - Woodrow F. Call: You don't have any idea what it says. You found that in some old book or something. For all you know it invites people to rob us.
    - Augustus 'Gus' McCrae: Well the first man that comes along that can read Latin is welcome to rob us, as far as I'm concerned.

    Tommy Lee Jones - Woodrow F. Call
