Tony: Out there between bluffs and buttes and mesas and arroyos and canyons. . . What is a butte anyway? What's a butte?. . .There's water, raging whitewater to be exact. And we all know what that means. Ned Beatty, squeal like a pig jokes.
Tony mentions Ned Beatty and "squeal like a pig" which are both references to a famous scene in the 1972 thriller, Deliverance, which took place on a river and starred Burt Reynolds and Jon Voight. The movie was set in Georgia while Tony is in New Mexico.
