Winners of the West (1940)
Claire Hartford: Mr. Ramsay, I called you a bully and a coward. I apologize... you're not a coward.
John Hartford: I have a franchise from the government to build this road!
King Carter: When you reach Hellgate Pass, Mr. Hartford, I'm the government.
Jeff Ramsay: That railroad is going through Hellgate Pass in spite of you and your hired redskins!
King Carter: Snakeye, you go to War Eagle's village at once. Tell him he must send out war parties - cover every trail - no white man must get through to the fort or the telegraph!
Tex Houston: That gal can see trouble further and head for it faster than any critter I've ever seen!
King Carter: All's fair in love and war, you know.
Claire Hartford: We'll keep love out of this, if you don't mind, and we'll talk about war.
Tex Houston: Never stop a good fight because you'll never know when you'll see another.
King Carter: They won't dare to attack me. War Eagle is my friend.
Raven: War Eagle may be your friend but to those cutthroat bucks of his, you're just another white man with hair worth liftin'!
Jeff Ramsay: Carter, do you remember the time I told you that civilization was gonna catch up to you whether you liked it or not? Well, it has - and it's passed ya.
King Carter: You know, Ramsay, you and I have a lot in common. It's too bad we can't work together.
Jeff Ramsay: Yes, but it's what we haven't got in common that keeps us on opposite sides of the fence.
King Carter: It becomes more evident everyday that Ramsay and I must settle our little dispute with gunplay.
John Hartford: We'll build a railroad right through Hellgate Pass and forget him.
Jeff Ramsay: We'll build a railroad all right, but I bet he'll be a hard man to forget.
Claire Hartford: Dad! The work train is moving!
John Hartford: They must be stealing it!
Claire Hartford: They're Indians!
John Hartford: Indians don't drive locomotives!
Raven: They'll probably blow themselves up with the bridge.
King Carter: Well, just so they get the job done.
Claire Hartford: Well, I don't understand how you can take these things so lightly.
Jeff Ramsay: Well, as long as you got to take 'em, that's the only way to do it.
Raven: I'm sorry I missed them, Mr. Carter.
King Carter: That's all right, Raven. It's not the first time a bottle has spoiled a man's aim.
