The Wild Bunch (1969)
Dutch Engstrom: [impressed] Well, I'd say those fellas know how to handle themselves!
Sykes: They been fightin' Apaches for a thousand years; That's a sure way to learn.
Pike Bishop: They ever get armed, with good leaders, this whole country'll go up in smoke!
Sykes: That it will son, that it will.
Lyle Gorch: They made damn fools out of us, Mr. Bishop! Gettin' so a feller can't sleep with both eyes closed for fear of gettin' his throat cut. Where in hell were you?
Tector Gorch: Now you listen to me, Lyle - You get up off your ass and help once in a while, I wouldn'a got caught near s'easy.

Pike Bishop: You boys want to move on or stay here and give him a... decent burial?
Tector Gorch: He was a good man, and I think we oughta bury him.
Pike Bishop: He's DEAD! And he's got a lot of good men back there to keep him company!
Lyle Gorch: Too damn many!
Dutch Engstrom: [removes his hat] I think the boys are right. I'd like to say a few words for the dear, dead departed. And maybe a few hymns'd be in order. Followed by a church supper. With a choir!
Lyle Gorch: You crazy bastards! Both of ya!

Tector Gorch: Silver rings.
Dutch Engstrom: [upset] "Silver rings", your butt! Them's washers! Damn!
Lyle Gorch: Washers. Washers. We shot our way out of that town for a dollar's worth of steel holes!
Pike Bishop: They set it up.
Lyle Gorch: "They"? Who in the hell is "they?"
Sykes: [laughs hysterically] "They"? Why, they is the plain and fancy they, that's who "they" is! Caught you, didn't they? Tied a tin can to your tail. Led you in and waltzed you out again. Oh my, what a bunch! Big tough ones, hunh? Here you are with a handful of holes, a thumb up your ass, and a big grin to pass the time of day with. They? Who the hell is "they?"
Pike Bishop: Railroad men... bounty hunters... Deke Thornton.

Lyle Gorch: All your fancy plannin' and talkin' damn near got us shot to pieces over a few lousy bags of washers. Well, this was goin' to be me and Tector's last job before we quit and headed south. We spent all our time and money a-gettin' ready for this!
Pike Bishop: You spent all your time and money runnin' whores in Hondo while I spent my stake settin' it up.
[throws down washer]
Pike Bishop: Hell, I should have been runnin' whores instead of stealin' Army horses.
Lyle Gorch: While you was doin' all that plannin', me and Tector was gettin' our bell rope pulled by two... two, mind you, Hondo whores!
[starts laughing]
Dutch Engstrom: [laughing] And Pike was dreamin' of washers... you were matching whores... in tandem!
Lyle Gorch: What's that?
Tector Gorch: That's one behind t'other.
Lyle Gorch: That's right! That's what we was doin'!

Pike Bishop: [the Gorches are protesting the dividing up of the loot] Sharin' up will be the same as always.
Lyle Gorch: Well, me and Tector don't think that he
[points at Angel]
Lyle Gorch: oughtta get the same amount. He's just startin' out and this is mine and Tector's openin' for a new territory!
Tector Gorch: That's right, and I figure a share to that old goat
[points at Sykes]
Tector Gorch: for watchin' them horses is damn sure a share too much!
Lyle Gorch: So, we decided; it ain't fair.
Pike Bishop: If you two boys don't like equal shares, why in the hell don't you just take *all* of it?
Pike Bishop: Well, why don't you *answer* me, you damn yellow-livered trash?
Lyle Gorch: [realizing the rest are backing Pike] Now, Pike, you know damn well...
Pike Bishop: [angered] I don't know a damn thing, except I either *lead* this bunch, or end it *right now*!

Lyle Gorch: [the Bunch is riding into Angel's village] Hey, Angel! Why don't you tell your folks to feed them dogs?
Angel: Any insult to my family while we are here and I will kill you!
Lyle Gorch: Hey, Angel; do you have a sister?
Angel: [angrily] Si!
Lyle Gorch: [very politely] I'd be pleased to make her acquaintance. And that of your mama too!
Tector Gorch: [laughing] And the same goes for your grandma, too Sonny!

Pike Bishop: Let's go!
Lyle Gorch: Why not?

Angel: [Gazing across the Rio Grande] Mexico lindo.
Lyle Gorch: I don't see nothin' so lindo about it.
