    with the greatest respect the final words in that great movie were from the Edmond O'Brien character to Robert Ryan .. ' it aint what it used to be .. but .. it'll do '

    Pucker We all have it coming, kid

    "It ain't like the old days, but it ain't bad."

    This is what we call paraphrasing and I (for one) prefer attribution even when paraphrasing. I can well imagine a similar thread if no mention of the line being borrowed from the movie had been made, and some fan had made the connection.

    Internet folken.

    There's just no pleasing some of 'em.

    Had me a dang fine roodog once upon a time. He could tree a coon, then jump up the same tree and get it.

    I tanned his hide when he died Clyde, in that's it hanging on the shed.
