Colonel Genichi Tomura: I'm very sorry to have done this to your acquaintance. You will believe it was necessary.

The Dutchman: I do not doubt it, if you say it was necessary, my friend. It's a stiff price for a bottle of bad whiskey.

Colonel Genichi Tomura: Five of my men have been injured, a system has been disrupted, and you would wish me to do nothing about it?

The Dutchman: A man who does not fight and disrupt a system when he's become drunk has wasted his money. Fighting and drinking is also a part of the system. Not a system I invented. What would have me saying?

Colonel Genichi Tomura: [chuckles] This is how I admire you. Were it otherwise I would have had him killed. You make it nothing. Yet, there is something about it that I do not like, and do not believe.

The Dutchman: Give him to me. I'll put him to scrubbing the floor of the saloon. That'll teach him manners. Killing him will teach him nothing.

Colonel Genichi Tomura: It would give me so much satisfaction!

The Dutchman: But beating him demands something. Who's learned anything from a dead man?
