For anyone who has seen the 1990 movie, have you detected a change in the dialogue between the original release and the one presently being screened on cable and video?  I am referring to the shootout scene near the conclusion of the film between Quigley and the chief baddie.  The bad guy (I love that actor) says something about "Wyatt Earp"[/u,]and Quigley answers: "I knew Wyatt Earp, and you're no Wyatt Earp."  I recall that line VERY DISTINCTLY because it echoed the line delivered to the then most recent Republican Vice  Presential candidate Dan Quayle by the Democrat candidate Lloyd Benson during the debates.  Quayle was being projected as a John F. Kennedy look-alike (be-alike) by the Republicans.  Quayle quated JfK during the debate, and Lloyd unloaded on him with that line: "I KNEW John Kennedy; and, Senator, you are no John Kennedy."  Quayle never recovered.  It was weird that Tom Selleck, a well-known Republican, should have uttered that line.  That's what made it surprising and dramatic.

OK: in the PRESENT version of "Quigley Down Under," Tom Selleck says --
"This ain't Dodge City, and you ain't Bill Hickock."  THEY CHANGED THE WHOLE SCENE!  Has anyone else noticed this?
