--- excerpts from FIRST BLOOD ---

Sheriff : Morning, you visiting someone around here. You know, wearing
the flag on the jacket looking the way you do, you're asking for
trouble around here, friend. Headed North or South?

Rambo : North

Sheriff : Aw, jump in, I'll make sure you head in the right direction,
huh.

[ Driving ]

Sheriff : Where you headed?

Rambo : Portland

Sheriff : Portland is South, you said you were headed North

Rambo : You got some place I can eat around here?

Sheriff : There is a diner about 30 miles up the highway

Rambo : Is there any law against me getting something here?

Sheriff : Yeh, me

Rambo : Why are you pushing me?

Sheriff : What did you say ?

Rambo : I said why are you pushing me, I haven't done anything to you

Sheriff : First of all, you don't ask the questions around here, I do,
you understand. Secondly, we don't want guys like you in this town,
drifters. First thing you know we got a whole bunch of guys like you
in this town. That's why.

[ Dropping Rambo off at bridge ]

Sheriff : You want some friendly advice. Get a haircut and take a bath.
You wouldn't get hassled so much.

--- excerpts from FIRST LETTER ---

Andrew Wiles : Morning, you visiting someone around here. You know,
wearing 231PU on your jacket looking the way you do, you're asking for
trouble around here, friend. Headed North or South?

Me : North

Wiles : Aw, jump in, I'll make sure you head in the right direction,
huh.

[ Driving ]

Wiles : Where you headed?

Me : New Hampshire

Wiles : Princeton is South, you said you were headed North

Me : You got some place I can eat around here?

Wiles : There is a diner about 30 miles up the highway

Me : Is there any law against me getting something here?

Wiles : Yeh, me

Me : Why are you pushing me?

Wiles : What did you say ?

Me : I said why are you pushing me, I haven't done anything to you

Wiles : First of all, you don't ask the questions around here, I do,
you understand. Secondly, we don't want guys like you ever published in
any math journal, drifters. First thing you know we got a whole bunch
of guys like you in math journals. That's why.

Me : Neither you nor your secretary of the periodical ANNALS OF
MATHEMATICS answered or acknowledged receipt of my math letter of
several years back. Why is that?

Wiles : You want some friendly advice. Get a haircut and take a bath.
You wouldn't get hassled so much on Usenet.
