Three Texas Steers (1939)
Postman: Are you Nancy Evans?
Nancy Evans: Yes.
Postman: You seem kinda young to be boss of a circus.
Nancy Evans: I'll soon get over that.
Lillian: She's thinking of growing a beard to give her dignity.
Henchman Steve: Well, this is just great. We wreck the circus to make her sell the ranch and now she's going to live on it.
George Ward: No she's not.
Henchman Steve: Well, what are you going to do?
George Ward: We'll be in Mesquite ahead of the young lady with a reception committee.
Tucson Smith: Well, we're nearly home, boys.
Stony Brooke: The 3-M will look mighty good after that set-to in Santa Fe.
Lullaby Joslin: Don't forget, we've been away for three months. Most likely, we'll have to dig it out from under the dust.
Tucson Smith: That is, if the moths have left us anything to dig out.
[after Hercules played a card, Willie the Gorilla grabbed it and put it back in Hercules' hand]
Lillian: Hey! What are you doin' gangin' up on me? One baboon at a time!
Hercules, the Midget: Can't a guy change his mind, Lil?
Lillian: Yeah, providin' he's got a mind to start with. Besides I ain't playin' cards with a man who has a moth-eaten monkey for partner.
[to the gorilla climbing in a tree]
Lillian: Get out of there, you upholstered nitwit!
Tony: Hey, gang, take a look at your new home!
Hercules, the Midget: Ain't it somethin'!
Lillian: Yeah, so quiet and peaceful. I wonder how long it takes to learn how to milk a chicken.
Lullaby Joslin: C'mon, let's invite the ladies to scram.
Tucson Smith: Let me do it. I'll, you know, sort of break it to her gently.
Stony Brooke: Tactful Tucson, they call him - the big-hearted bouncer.
Lillian: What's your job around here?
Stony Brooke: I'm a cowhand, ma'am. I chase cows.
Lillian: If I could only learn to moo.
[intent on a showdown with Mike Abbott, the Mesquiteers discover that he's not in his hotel room]
Tucson Smith: Maybe we should go in and sort of tidy up the room.
Stony Brooke: Funny, that's just what I was thinkin'.
[Hercules waives an enormous gun at the Mesquiteers]
Lillian: Don't pull the trigger - you'll wind up in South Dakota!
Stony Brooke: Give us a break, Desperate Desmond.
Tucson Smith: Be careful, guys. Don't over eat.
Lullaby Joslin: I had more trouble catchin' those sardines than I've had ropin' a calf.
Tucson Smith: I wish you had roped a calf!
Stony Brooke: We gotta figure out some way to help Nancy.
Lullaby Joslin: If I was Nancy, I'd be just a little bit tired of our help.
Stony Brooke: Well, we can't let her lose her ranch.
Tucson Smith: What about ours? If we can't pay our own mortgage, we won't have any place to sleep.
Lullaby Joslin: Oh, yes we will. We'll have a nice cozy cell to sleep in for the next twenty years, if Mr. Brooke keeps bein' helpful.
Tucson Smith: Well, that Nancy sure is a swell girl. I reckon we oughta take in her circus sometime.
Stony Brooke: Tucson, I think you've got something there.
[Lullaby bursts out of the ranch house pursued by Nancy's gorilla]
Lullaby Joslin: Nancy! Nancy! You forgot somethin'!
