Haunted Ranch (1943)
'Alibi' Terhune: Has Dave said any more about enlistin'?
'Dusty' King: No, but I look for him to the first time he gets to town.
'Alibi' Terhune: Yeah, and I reckon you won't be far behind him.
'Dusty' King: You aren't a-kiddin'. You know how I felt ever since the Maine was sunk.
[while heading for their long-overdue vacation, the Range Busters pursue and capture a murderous outlaw]
'Alibi' Terhune: First it's bank robbers and now it's bushwhackers. Ain't we ever gonna finish our vacation?
'Dusty' King: Sam, tell me, who's the cook around here?
Sam, the cook: Me.
'Dusty' King: Well, who's the foreman?
Sam, the cook: Me.
'Dusty' King: In other words, you do just about everything.
Sam, the cook: Yes sir, I'm just a jack-in-the-box.
'Dusty' King: No, you mean a jack-of-all-trades.
Sam, the cook: No sir, I mean a jack-in-the-box. I'm always poppin' up on one job and sittin' down on another!
'Dusty' King: You know, it's mighty funny. I thought Uncle Abe had a lot of money. I thought there'd be more help around here.
Helen Weston: Sam said he always had 12 to 15 hands. After he died, the men here left one by one.
'Dusty' King: They did?
Helen Weston: Sam says they were scared off by ghosts. I don't believe it in, but according to Sam, some queer things have been going on here.
'Dusty' King: Like what?
Helen Weston: Oh, strange sounds at night, the organ playing with no one around, flickering lights near the barn.
'Dusty' King: Sounds like barflies.
[Sam is preparing lunch]
Helen Weston: Aren't you going to stay to eat?
'Dusty' King: If you live through it, I'll take a chance on supper.
[Elmer, Alibi's ventriloquist dummy, is reading minds]
Elmer, Alibi's dummy: Quiet! I got to concentrate here. You're thinkin' about somebody that's dead. Somebody named R... O... Roberts!
Henchman Chuck: So what? Reno Red and Roberts are all the same guy.
'Alibi' Terhune: Is that right? Do you know somebody named Roberts?
Rance Austin: I used to. Go ahead... Tell me what I'm thinkin' about.
Elmer, Alibi's dummy: I can't get it clear. No, I lost it... No, I get it. You're thinking about his money!
Rance Austin: That dummy's too smart!
[referring to Alibi]
Jim, the bartender: Say, he's looking for a job.
'Dusty' King: Well, if you're interested, be sure and come out. I'll have a good job for you.
Elmer, Alibi's dummy: How about me?
'Dusty' King: Are you a cowhand?
Elmer, Alibi's dummy: Oh, I've been a roper and a rider, a bulldogger and a fighter, a bronco buster and a dynamiter. Yippee!
'Dusty' King: I'm sorry. You haven't had enough experience.
[referring to 'Alibi' and Elmer]
Sam, the cook: Kind of a big man to be playin' with dolls.
'Dusty' King: Hey, fellas, they're stealin' your horses!
[Alibi, Rex and Sam rush out of the house]
'Dusty' King: Oh, pardon me, Helen, you know, that was just a gag. I don't like to say goodbye with so many people around... you know what I mean?
[bends over to kiss her]
Elmer, Alibi's dummy: Hey, you know they're stealin' your horse, too, Dusty!
