 Quotes from Emperor of the North Pole (1973)
[Shack is chasing a hobo atop the train after having dealt with the aftermath of the train stopping short]
Shack: Got yourself a game leg hey kid? You should have jumped off! That would have been the smart thing to do. You should have jumped Kid! I got to hand it to you kid, you're smart. You play both side against the middle. Have your self a high old time. But now it has lasted long enough. Oh, you can keep running kid, but you are running out of train!
[Shack laughs as the hobo falls over the crow's nest of the caboose.]
Shack: And there is no place to hide. My Brakey's cracked his neck, the hide's peeling off the Black, and the Hogger's ready for the looney bin. And all because of you. That's a pretty fair day's work for a tender-foot.
[Steadying his sledge-hammer]
Shack: But now I am going to show you what happens to people who ride on my train without a ticket.
