Dodge City (1939)
Wade Hatton: You know, out here the trail boss has sometimes even got to take the law into his own hands.
Abbie Irving: Oh, yes, pioneering I believe you call it, don't you?

[Abbie laughs at Wade after he falls in the newspaper office]
Wade Hatton: You know, there's an old saying in the British Army: "The law must always save its face in front of the natives."
Abbie Irving: And what if the natives object to its face?
Wade Hatton: We just put them across our knee... and spank them! Soundly!
Abbie Irving: You're not suggesting that I'm a native?
Wade Hatton: No. The only real native of Kansas is the buffalo. He's got a very hard head, a very uncertain temper and a very lonely future. Apart from that there's hardly any comparison between you.
