* A lot of tropes in the Western are subverted in Creator/JimJarmusch's ''Dead Man'', but [[Creator/JohnnyDepp William]] gets a legit [=CMoA=] with this scene:
-->'''Detective:''' You William Blake?
-->'''William:''' Yes, I am. Do you know my poetry?
* Also, pretty much any time Nobody saves his ass, which does work with the film's Western subversions since Nobody is Native American.
* When the racist missionary tries to pull a gun on Blake, only to be stabbed in the hand, shot in the chest, and robbed by Blake and Nobody.
--> '''Missionary''': God damn you to hell, William Blake.
--> '''William''': He already has. ''(bang)''
