Clay Boone: I think we'll go to St. Louis.
Cat: St. Louis?
Clay Boone: Yeah, St. Louis! City on the Missouri, railhead of the Santa Fe, jump off for the Oregon Trail - producers of beef, beer, shoes and, ah, good times.

Cat: Sir Harry Percival, I presume.
Sir Harry Percival: Really, roughing it on the frontier - how delightful!

Clay Boone: But we'll stay and do what we can. As long as there ain't no trouble.
