Keith David Quote of the Month: June 2005

Keith David has had a lot of big roles in big films, but I think my favorite line of his comes from a smaller film titled "Dead Presidents". In this story, a couple of childhood friends go to Vietnam and survive, only to have trouble adjusting to life back in the old neighborhood. David plays Kirby, the local pool hall owner who in one scene is assaulted outside of his place. Kirby ends up using his artificial leg to beat the crap out of the mugger, all while he hops around on his one good leg. The line he utters after this is over is priceless:

Kirby: Everyone in this town knows I've only got one leg! And that m*therf*cker grabbed the wrong one!
