"... Which reminds me of a time I was sitting in a bar in Mexico and this girl walked in. For some reason, I looked at her. The mood was right. My violins were going. My candle was lit and there it was. Two Mexicans noticed me looking at her and told me in Spanish, "Mariposas de amor" -- which literally means "butterflies of love." I thought to myself, "Jesus, what a straight statement for them to make." They noticed that something had fluttered inside of me. It was only later that I found out they meant that she had the crabs. But it was worth it, because she was an incredible beauty."

-- Lee Marvin, Playboy, January, 1969.
