The Big Trees (1952)
Daisy Fisher: It's lucky for you that I only learned how to write, not read.
Daisy Fisher: [to Frenchy] You stye on the eye of a flea on a thigh of a nit on the neck of a gnat!
Daisy Fisher: What is this, a hotel or a nursery?
Alicia Chadwick: A baby was just born here, thanks to Jim.
Daisy Fisher: Congratulations...
Jim Fallon: What do you mean "thanks to Jim"?
Daisy Fisher: I'd better get out of here. It might be catching.
Jim Fallon: Stop thinking so hard, Frenchy. You're liable to get yourself a bad headache.
Alicia Chadwick: [Speaking about Jim] Men have been known to change.
Walter 'Yukon' Burns: Oh, lady, even I have been given up by women reformers! The biggest mistake a woman can make is to pick the wrong man and try to make him right. Why don't you go off somewhere and have a good cry and forget him?
Elder Bixby: Violence is not our creed.
Walter 'Yukon' Burns: Yeah, I know. And I believe in turning the other cheek... but you just run out of cheeks. It's time to start growing some religious muscle.
Judge Crenshaw: Mr. Burns, I've heard you were an honest man and good with a gun. But I also heard you confessed to weakness for liquor, cards and women.
Walter 'Yukon' Burns: Not women, your Honor. They ain't for the weak.
Jim Fallon: [Referring to Alicia] What a gal!
Walter 'Yukon' Burns: You chigger-pickin' Don Juan! You just try pitchin' hay with her, and I'll shoot that lump you call a head right from under your cap!
prologue: In 1900 the Congress of the United States passed a law which made a young man in Wisconsin decide to prove - that money growas on trees.
Daisy Fisher: [to Jim about Alicia] Lucky for you my father never owned a shotgun - what about hers?
Jim Fallon: [to Frenchy] I just want you to know I can see through that swamp you call a brain!
Judge Crenshaw: [Watching the fire destroy the claims building] This is the most satisfying act of God I've ever had the pleasure of witnessing.
Walter 'Yukon' Burns: [Referring to the giant sequioas] Biggest, boldest things in the whole world!
Walter 'Yukon' Burns: [to Jim] Make you feel kinda small?
Jim Fallon: Nope... big! I'm the one that;s gonna knock 'em down!
Jim Fallon: [Noticing the group of Quaker women with their distinctive attire] What are they all dressed up for?
Frenchy LeCroix: There's a hallelujah colony around here... soul savers... rigid and religious.
Jim Fallon: [Referring to Alicia] The dark-haired one can save my soul anytime.
Gray: [to Jim] None of these religious colonists ever bother to accumulate much cash.
Alicia Chadwick: There's no need to.
Walter 'Yukon' Burns: You see, Jim, these are wonderful folks. They'll give yuh everything they got. If they haven't got anything to give you, they'll say a prayer for you.
Walter 'Yukon' Burns: You're gettin' in a rut, Jim. You'd better look out, and when a rut becomes deep enough, it becomes a grave... and you gotta couple partners likely to put you in it.
