Great western movie line

I was flipping channels Saturday afternoon and came on Once Upon a Time in the West. It’s a long movie I’ve never seen (but would like to) and I popped in somewhere in the middle, so I only watched a couple minutes. In the scene I did see, Henry Fonda kicks out a crutch from a guy he’s disgustedly talking at and then sneers down at him: “I could squash you like a wormy apple.” This line sweetly teases to oh-so-many clichéd lines of this nature you ever heard. Nice!
