Argentum, I've been wondering about your signature line.

I'm pretty sure you are in fact not my Huckleberry, but let's suppose you were. What exactly would be the nature of our relationship?

I believe thats a quote from Doc Holiday from Tombstone...

You are correct.

Ralphie, if you haven't done so already, check out the movie, it's very good.

That's ok, you don't have to answer the question if you don't want to.

Why Ralphie, if I didn't know any better, I'd swear you are trying to provoke me.

I can answer the question, but it's best defined by how it's used in the movie. A written response won't do it justice. Plain and simple, "I'm your Huckleberry" loosely translates into "I'm the right man for the job". Usually in response to some sort of challenge. For example:

Ralphie says, "I'm looking to start an internet discussion forum fight because I'm in a bad mood."

Argentum replies, "I'm your Huckleberry".

Thanks, Huck. That was a lot easier than watching the movie.

So far we are 8-9 during this stretch, with 5 left to play.

Not too bad, but still disappointing. It could have been a lot better.

Getting 3 of the next 5 to make it 11-11 is doable.

Quite possibly one of my favorite movie lines in a fantastic movie.

Ralphie,

Gas to go to Blockbuster: $80

Movie rental cost: $2.50

Watching Tombstone for yourself.... priceless

By the way, Argentum, I used that line in a thread talking to Elmer(incorrectly I might add), but it generated a good response.
