+1. It's amazing how much weight the "first" story carries, all else being equal. As silly and unfair as it sounds, it can make all the difference.

At that point BS usually has much less of a chance.

Mack: Shame what this town's come to.

Mack: What? We're freighters. Ralph here's a shopkeeper.
Charley Waite: You're men, ain't you?
Mack: I didn't raise my boys just to see 'em killed.
Charley Waite: Well you may not know this, but there's things that gnaw at a man worse than dying.
