“Drew Thompson is awesome ” from Justified, Season 4

All things considered, it’s not a bad eulogy for any man of a certain age, is it?

First thing we’re gonna do is we’re gonna acknowledge that this guy’s awesome.


I mean, he shoots Theo Tonin, fakes his own death in a spectacular fashion, pushes a guy out of an airplane while he’s flying it, parachutes into Harlan County with enough coke and cash to jump-start the economy of a small country, and then he has the balls to get a job in law enforcement not once but two times.

He spends a couple of days riding around with you while you’re looking for him, and now he’s run off with a hooker that’s half his age.

That’s some bad-ass shit.

It’s pretty bad-ass.

Yes, it is. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You gonna let those guys be the ones, or are we gonna be the ones that take that badass?

You’re right.
We’re on it.

Let’s go find a whore.

    Justified had many memorable scenes… I had forgotten about this one. Thanks for sharing!

    Man, do I miss Elmore Leonard. That man knew better than most which end of a pencil the sound came out of.

    John Sandford can write like that on his better days.

    Nick Searcy, portrayer of Art Mullen in that scene, is also an outspoken Conservative who directed Gosnell: America’s Biggest Serial Killer and picks public fights with snotty little punks like Sean Penn.

    He’s a guy, all right.

    I’ve been a big fan of Nick’s ever since he was a deputy here in “Trinity”, lo, those many (24) years ago. His twitter feed is pretty hilarious… I see he is of late referring to himself as, “YOUNG, VIBRANT FILM & TELEVISION STAR, and “Embitchener of Leftists”. If directing “Gosnell” was not a slap with a mailed gauntlet to the smug, botoxed faces of Hollyweird, I don’t know what is.

    I often forget that while Ralon Givens gets all the “Fun” screen time, Mullins was always the guiding hand, keeping the very effective youngster more or less on the lawful path. Mullins doesn’t use the “rule book” but common sense, delivered in a manner that the youngster could understand.

    Nicely done.
