Then, then your name isn't Kaplan?
Man at Prairie Crossing: Can't say it is, 'cause it ain't.
When Vandamm and company first tried to kill Thornhill/Kaplan, they tried to make it look like a drunk driving accident. A plausible plan because they didn't want to draw attention to themselves. Then why in the world would the try to kill him with a biplane cropduster? Not only would it have a very low percentage for success, it would in no way appear to be accidental. That's a pretty clumsy attempt by "professionals." Why not just drive up to him and give him the ol' "one behind the ear?"
