    Best scene ever. 10 minutes of amazing acting and dialogue from two true masters of the craft of acting. It doesnt get any better than this. Warning---violence, and racist language, definately rated R.

    RIP Dennis, you were The Man.

    True Romance is a great flick, picked up the two disk collector's set as soon as it was available. That scene is a classic.

    Lifer,
    You took the words out of my mouth.
    When I heard about Art's death, I wondered who the other two would be.
    It must be a generational thing about 3 deaths, but generally the concept/myth seems to hold true.
