Quotes:
[after Laredo visits the ranch and pays Quirt for the land, Quirt prepares to leave and puts some of the money in a can for the Worths]
Mrs. Worth:Oh no, Quirt, no!
Quirt Evans:What kind of a boarder do you think I am?
Thomas Worth:You can't do that. We'd tend to any wounded human... and not for pay.
Quirt Evans:You don't believe in force - so you can't force me to take it back.
Mrs. Worth:I'm afraid you're outwitted, Thomas.
Quirt Evans:How long have I been here?
Quirt Evans:Almost three weeks.
Quirt Evans:Kinda hate to get goin'.
Mrs. Worth:Oh, but you can't... your leg... you're in no condition to travel.

A great story of a man changing for love, 3 March 2001
Author: John T.-3 from Little Rock

This is one of Wayne's best movies, the simple but powerful story of a man changing for the love of a woman. It is always a great introduction to John Wayne for someone who has not appreciated his work, his best movies are about love and redemption. The Quiet Man, Stagecoach and The Angel and The Badman, are among the best movies ever made.
