Charley Waite: Men are gonna get killed here today, Sue, and I'm gonna kill 'em.

Charley: You the one killed our friend?
Butler: That's right. I shot the boy, too. And I enjoyed it.
[Charley pulls out his gun and shoots Butler]

[Charley has explained his strategy for the upcoming fight]
Boss Spearman: Sounds like you got it all worked out.
Charley Waite: Yeah, except the part where we don't get killed.

[Charley Waite kicks Button off his horse. He falls into the river]
Button: What you do that for?

Boss Spearman: Evidently he ain't over it yet.

Charley Waite: You ever seen one this bad?

Mose: Well, you should know, Boss, since you was there.
Boss Spearman: What'd you say?
Button: He said, "You should know since you was there."

Charley: I'm not goin' to my maker without knowin' your given name. Mine ain't Waite; it's Postelwaite. Charles Travis Postelwaite. What's yours? Sure ain't Boss.
[Boss hesitates]
Charley: I mean it, Boss. I'm asking you straight up.
Boss Spearman: It's Bluebonnet.
Charley: Bluebonnet?
Boss Spearman: Bluebonnet, yeah.
Charley: No middle name?
Boss Spearman: No, just Bluebonnet Spearman. And don't you tell no one. I want to hear you swear an oath now, go on.

Sue Barlow: So is it marriage that scares you two, or putting down roots?
Boss Spearman: No. Who'd have him? All rangy and mangy like a rough old dog.
Charley Waite: How about I hold your head under water for just a little while?

Boss Spearman: She ought not to sneak up like that.
Charley Waite: She weren't sneaking. I scared that woman half to death.
Boss Spearman: Scared me a little bit too.

Boss Spearman: It ain't right to walk away without a word.
Charley Waite: Well what do you want me to tell her, Boss? We probably ain't gonna make it? Be a big fat comfort.

Sue Barlow: You are coming back, aren't you? Then I'll be waiting for you Charles Postlewaite.
Charley Waite: [to Boss, who is riding away] You bucket mouth! Can't keep nothing private.

Boss Spearman: I aim to kill Baxter and those that done this, and if that marshal gets in the way, I'm gonna kill him too. So you best get your mind right about what's got to be done, Charlie.
Charley Waite: I got no problem with killing, Boss. Never have.

Boss Spearman: It's a pretty day for making things right.
Charley Waite: Well, enjoy it, 'cause once it starts, it's gonna be messy like nothing you ever seen.

Boss Spearman: We come for justice, not vengeance. Now them is two different things.
Charley Waite: Not today they ain't.

Charley Waite: [burying Mose and Tig] Be right to say some words.
Boss Spearman: You want to speak with the man upstairs, go on and do it. I'll stand right here and listen, hat in hand, but I ain't talking to that son or a bitch. And I'll be holding a grudge for him letting this befall a sweet kid like Mose.
Charley Waite: Well, he sure as hell wasn't one to complain. Woke with a smile, seemed like he could keep it there all day. Kind of a man that'd say 'good morning' and mean it, whether it was or not. Tell you the truth, Lord, if there was two gentler souls in this world, I never seen 'em. Seems like old Tig wouldn't even kill birds in the end. Well, you got yourself a good man and a good dog, and I'm inclined to agree with Boss here about holding a grudge against you for it. I guess that means Amen.

Mack: Shame what this town's come to.
Charley Waite: You could do something about it.
Mack: What? We're freighters. Ralph here's a shopkeeper.
Charley Waite: You're men, ain't you?
Mack: I didn't raise my boys just to see 'em killed.
Charley Waite: Well you may not know this, but there's things that gnaw at a man worse than dying.

Boss Spearman: The name Butler mean anything to you?
Charley Waite: You hear names when you're on the other side of things.
Boss Spearman: He as fast as they say?
Charley Waite: He's a killer.
Boss Spearman: You know him if you saw him?
Charley Waite: He ain't hard to recognize if you know what you're looking for.

[first lines]
Boss Spearman: [indicating a thunderstorm] Think she'll get over this-a-way?
Charley Waite: Might.
Boss Spearman: Best bed 'em down.

[last lines]
Charley Waite: Let's go get our cows.

Charley Waite: I got no problem with killin', Boss. Never have!

Charley Waite: You're me, ain't yuh?

Charley Waite: I'm tryin' to put some bad times behind me, but sometimes they don't stay put.

Charley: There's nuthin' in this town seen a surprise, except you.
