Appaloosa (2008)
[after a shoot-out]
Everett Hitch: That was quick.
Virgil Cole: Yeah, everybody could shoot.

Vince: You shoot him, you think we're just gonna ride away?
Virgil Cole: Nope.
Vince: We'll kill you and Hitch.
Virgil Cole: You'll try.
Vince: You're willing to die to keep us from taking him?
Virgil Cole: Sure.
Vince: Hitch, you willing to die, too?
Virgil Cole: Of course he's willing to die. You think we do this kind of work because we're scared to die? You.
Vince: Me?
Virgil Cole: You afraid to die?
Vince: I ain't afraid.
Virgil Cole: Good, because you go first. And that boy with the red scarf goes next. You go on home, Vince. You go on home. Go on. Too many people die if you don't.

Randall Bragg: I told you you'd never hang me, Cole.
Virgil Cole: Never ain't here yet.

Allison French: I'm sorry, Virgil.
Virgil Cole: [Everett stands to leave] Stay here, Everett.
Allison French: I'm sorry. I was so alone, and Bragg... Well, Ring protected me and so did his brother.
Virgil Cole: You fuck Mackie, too?
Allison French: No. It was Ring. He was in charge. I just did what I had to do.
Virgil Cole: Everett... Ring kills me, do you think she'll go off with him?
Everett Hitch: [after a long, thoughtful pause] I think Allie needs to be with a man.
Allison French: You're a bastard! Don't listen to him. He tried to put his hands on me when I showed him our house.
Everett Hitch: No, Virgil. I did not.
Virgil Cole: No, Allie. Everett didn't do that.
Allison French: You believe him over me?
Virgil Cole: That's correct.

Allison French: Aren't either of you afraid?
Virgil Cole: Afraid?
Allison French: That you might get killed.
Virgil Cole: Oh, I don't know, Allie. Guess I don't think about it so much.
Allison French: Well, I'm afraid. But I'm afraid all the time.
Virgil Cole: Of what?
Allison French: Everything.
Virgil Cole: Like what? Hmm?
Allison French: Like being alone. Like being with the wrong man. Not having any money, a place to live.
Virgil Cole: I'll look out for you.
Allison French: For how long?
Virgil Cole: For as long as you need.

Randall Bragg: Mr. Everett Hitch. You a drinking man, Everett?
Virgil Cole: Not so much.
Randall Bragg: Hard to like a man who doesn't drink a little.
Virgil Cole: But not impossible.

Virgil Cole: She speaks well, she dresses fine, she's good-looking, she can play the piano, she cooks good, she's very clean, chews her food nice; but it appears she'll fuck anything ain't gelded.

Virgil Cole: [to the town horrified town leaders as he calmly reloads his pistol after he and Everett have just shot some of Bragg's henchmen in the bar] I warned 'em.

Virgil Cole: There's a set of bylaws posted right outside the door here of this very saloon. Your boys do like the bylaws say, everything will be muy bueno.
Randall Bragg: And if they don't?
Virgil Cole: I arrest them.
Randall Bragg: And if they don't go along?
Virgil Cole: I shoot them. Or Mr. Hitch does. That's the law.
Randall Bragg: *Your* law.
Virgil Cole: The same thing.
Randall Bragg: Hm. Maybe you aren't good enough. Don't be so sure you're quicker than me.
Virgil Cole: So far I've been quick enough.

Virgil Cole: Well, Dean, go back to Mr. Bragg and report that we ain't too frightened.
Dean: Mr. Bragg ain't gonna like that you hit me.
Virgil Cole: I don't guess you liked it all that much yourself, Dean.
Dean: You're damn right.
Virgil Cole: So you and Mr. Bragg can commi... What word am I trying for?
Everett Hitch: "Commiserate?"
Virgil Cole: You and Mr. Bragg can commiserate each other.

Everett Hitch: Virgil always tells the truth.
Allison French: Oh, nobody *always* tells the truth.
Virgil Cole: Why not?
Allison French: Well, they... For heaven's sake, Virgil, they just don't.
Virgil Cole: Always thought the truth was simpler. Tell a man what you mean.
Allison French: And a woman?
Virgil Cole: A woman?
Allison French: That's what I said.
Virgil Cole: Well, Allie, I don't really remember ever telling a woman anything.
Allison French: Virgil Cole...
[laughs]
Virgil Cole: What?
Allison French: Are you telling me that you've never had a woman?
Virgil Cole: Well, hell, Allie, I don't think that's something I should be discussing with you.
Allison French: But have you?
Virgil Cole: Well, of course I have.
Allison French: And did you never tell them anything?
Virgil Cole: Mostly, we just did what we were there to do.
Allison French: Which was what?
Virgil Cole: We won't talk about this anymore.
Allison French: Oh, Virgil. I was just funning you.
Virgil Cole: I didn't enjoy it.

Randall Bragg: You'll never hang me, Cole.
Virgil Cole: Never's a long time, Mr. Bragg.

Virgil Cole: [showing him fabric samples] Tell her she can pick whichever one she likes. You know, I'm kind of partial to this one here, but look. Look at that. You can see right through it.
Everett Hitch: Kind of small for curtains, aren't they?

Virgil Cole: Everett, we've been together now a while. Can't exactly say how long, but long. Ain't anybody I'd rather do this work with. You're as good as anybody I've seen, except maybe the Shelton boys and me. The reason you ain't as good as the Sheltons or me ain't got nothing to do with steady or fast or fortuitous. The reason the above-named folks are better than you is because you got feelings.
Everett Hitch: Well, hell, Virgil, everybody's got feelings.
Virgil Cole: Feelings get you killed.
Everett Hitch: You got feelings about Allie, don't you?
Virgil Cole: I cared about Allie in town, and I'll care about her when I get her back. But right now there's something running, and we're trying to catch it.

Virgil Cole: I never met a woman like her. Mostly I've been with whores and that squaw lady I told you about. She speaks well and dresses fine, and she's good-looking. She can play the piano, and she cooks good, and she's very clean. Chews her food nice. But it appears she'll fuck anything ain't gelded.
Everett Hitch: I'm not certain that's quite right.
Virgil Cole: What do you think's right?
Everett Hitch: I think she wants to be with the boss stallion.
Virgil Cole: There's only one stallion in a herd.
Everett Hitch: At a time.
