The Magnificent Seven (1960)
Lee: Yes. The final supreme idiocy. Coming here to hide. The deserter hiding out in the middle of a battlefield.

Vin: Twenty dollars? You must be living in style.
Lee: Yes... I have the most stylish corner of the filthy storeroom out back. That and one plate of beans. Ten dollars a day.

Chico: Villages like this they make up a song about every big thing that happens. Sing them for years.
Chris Adams: You think it's worth it?
Chico: Don't you?
Chris Adams: It's only a matter of knowing how to shoot a gun. Nothing big about that.
Chico: Hey. How can you talk like this? Your gun has got you everything you have. Isn't that true? Hmm? Well, isn't that true?
Vin: Yeah, sure. Everything. After awhile you can call bartenders and faro dealers by their first name - maybe two hundred of 'em! Rented rooms you live in - five hundred! Meals you eat in hash houses - a thousand! Home - none! Wife - none! Kids... none! Prospects - zero. Suppose I left anything out?
Chris Adams: Yeah. Places you're tied down to - none. People with a hold on you - none. Men you step aside for - none.
Lee: Insults swallowed - none. Enemies - none.
Chris Adams: No enemies?
Lee: Alive.
Chico: Well. This is the kind of arithmetic I like.
Chris Adams: Yeah. So did I at your age.

Lee: I found them.

Lee: You need men for a job in Mexico? How long?
Chris Adams: Four, maybe six weeks.
Lee: That ought to do it. How much does the job pay?
Chris Adams: I thought you were looking for the Johnson brothers, Lee.
Lee: [smirking] I found them. Now, how much does the job pay?
Chris Adams: Twenty dollars.
Lee: I'll have the money before I leave. It should just take care of my last two days' rent.

Lee: [Grabs at three flies - opens his hand] One. There was a time when I'd have gotten all three.

Chris: Go ahead, Lee. You don't owe anything to anybody.
Lee: Except to myself.

Lee: Insults swallowed - none. Enemies - none.
Chris Adams: No enemies?
Lee: ...alive...


The Magnificent Seven (2016)
Josh Faraday: [pulls out a gun] This is Ethel, don't you ever disrespect her!
[pulls out another gun]
Josh Faraday: It's Maria you can disrespect!
Vasquez: [drunk] I have five Maria!

Goodnight Robicheaux: What a merry bunch we are: a black man, a Chinaman and a Texican.

Goodnight Robicheaux: Yeah, well in the Alamo my daddy was shot dead by one of you Mexicans!
Vasquez: My daddy was at the Alamo too. Maybe we are related.
