[shouts]

Eula Goodnight: [pause] Oh.

Rooster Cogburn: That shows you know more about the Lord and His Good Book than you know about men!

[last lines]
Eula Goodnight: Reuben, I have to say it. Livin' with you has been an adventure any woman would relish for the rest o' time. I look at cha, with your burned out face and your big belly and your bear-like paws and your shining eye, and I have to say you're a credit to the whole male sex, and I'm proud to have ya for my friend.
Rooster Cogburn: I'll be damned if she didn't get the last word in again. Well...

Rooster Cogburn: Well, out in the territory, we prize a dead shot more'n we do a lady's charms.
Eula Goodnight: Then I've come to the right place, haven't I? You mean the men in the West do not mind if their women outshoot and outsmart them?
Rooster Cogburn: If they're quiet about it. No, here we value a spirited woman almost as much as we do a spirited horse.

Rooster Cogburn: Say, uh, there's one thing I would like to get straight.
Eula Goodnight: Hmm.
Rooster Cogburn: We both know that the Lord brands lyin' a sin. You think He'll still smile on you after them whoppers you told in there?
Eula Goodnight: And if thy words stray from the truth for the good of God's own, if thy intent be pure, thou shall not then be judged sinful.
Rooster Cogburn: Beautiful quotation. What book? What chapter?
Eula Goodnight: I will confess, Reuben, it is of my own invention, I just made it up.

Eula Goodnight: [referring to her bible quotation] I will confess, Reuben, it is of my own invention. I just made it up!
Rooster Cogburn: Hallelujah and jubilee, that is one quotation I will remember!
Eula Goodnight: And will you remember us, too, Reuben?
Rooster Cogburn: Longer than I'll remember that quotation, Miss Eula.

McCoy: Do you know anything about rafts? There's rough water down river.
Rooster Cogburn: I can ride. Can't be much different.
McCoy: You ain't no sailor. I can see that. Water is like a woman: sly and fickle. You gotta watch it every minute.
Rooster Cogburn: You a sailor?
McCoy: I was once. Shanghai McCoy's my name. Been around the Horn, sailed the seven seas, seen everything, done everything, that's how I know people are rotten. I've seen 'em all.
Eula Goodnight: You're wrong, old man. We're made in God's image, and goodness is in us. Even in you.
McCoy: Amazing! I never took you for a Bible-thumper.
Rooster Cogburn: Hold it. She is what she is 'cause she wants to be. That's the way you take her. Like me.
McCoy: You're wastin' your time preachin'. You too, Sister. I'm a ship that can't be salvaged.

Eula Goodnight: [as Rooster first arrives at the mission] You're too late, lawman.
Rooster Cogburn: Too late to stop 'em, but not too late to hang 'em.
