Tom Destry Jr.:

Frenchy: How did you know?
Tom Destry Jr.: Well, I read a book once it said women always look their best in the peace and quiet that follows a storm of violence.

When Destry first demonstrates his ability with a firearm by shooting at the knobs on the sign, he shoots a total of seven times. Although he is holding two Colt "Six-shooters", one in each hand, he fires only the pistol he holds in his right hand. Thus, he fired at least one more round more than the pistol could fire.
