Wyatt Earp challanges a man who runs a faro table. The man stands up and moves his hand towards his holster and Wyatt Earp says:
+ Skin it and see what happens.

The man is scared and says:
- Listen, mister, I'm getting awful tired of...

Wyatt Earp slaps him in the face and says:
+ I'm getting tired of your gas. Now jerk that pistol and go to work.

(Tombstone(1993), the movie)

    From the WR dictionary - gas: empty talk.
