  • "Indianapolis, Indiana," said Constant, "is the first place in the United States of America where a white man was hanged for the murder of an Indian. The kind of people who'll hang a white man for murdering an Indian," said Constant, "that's the kind of people for me."
  • "I myself grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana, where common speech sounds like a band saw cutting galvanized tin, and employs a vocabulary as un-ornamental as a monkey wrench...

  • Can't go west, can't go east
    I'm stuck in Indianapolis
    With a fuel pump that's deceased
    Ten days on the road now
    I'm four hours from my home town
    Is this Hell or Indianapolis
    With no way to get around?
