Blackjack Ketchum, Desperado (1956)
Doc Blaine: I haven't had a patient in two weeks. The last one I had was dead on arrival. He fell off his horse in front of a stampede and it took the hoofs of a thousand steers to kill him.
Bob Early: Maybe that's the difference between an amateur and a professional: the professional knows he can only make one mistake
Dee Havalik: Yeah, I didn't know how good I was myself until I heard you telling the boys at the inquest how many men I killed. It's a fine reputation you give me. Eleven men... that's quite a record. Hard to top it. But I'd like to make it an even dozen the next time I meet you.
Jared Tetlow: I want Dee Havalik freed by that coroner's jury... fair and square.
Grat Barbey: Well, how fair... and how square?
Jared Tetlow: Well, I don't mean a packed jury or a bought jury. What I mean is... a jury of towners.
Grat Barbey: Not no cattlemen on it, nor ranchers?
Jared Tetlow: That's the idea. The local cowmen have become prejudiced against the Four T and should be kept off the jury in the best interest of justice.
Grat Barbey: You mean you're going to give them a free rein?
Jared Tetlow: The Four T brand represents progress... and power. Ordinary people are afraid of power, and these townsmen are just ordinary. I want them scared. Not shot, no guns... but scared. I suggest you give them an example of Four T power just in case their idea of justice is misguided.
Grat Barbey: Sure boss! The biggest outfit is entitled to the biggest justice.
Mac Gill: The only time there's any law and order is when there's more of it than anything else. And this time there was more of Jared Tetlow.
Sheriff Mach: Tetlow, if you're so legal you ought to know I can't clear your man, Havalik. Only a coroner can do that - at an official inquest.
Jared Tetlow: Well, under the circumstances, that seems like an unnecessary formality.
Dee Havalik: Yeah, and I ain't wasting my time listening to some jury tell me a lot of stuff I already know. Besides, Carson got no more lead than he asked for.
Sheriff Mach: Did I hear you refuse to appear before the coroner's jury?
Dee Havalik: Well, you ain't deaf are you?
Blackjack 'Tom' Ketchum: You can find law and order in a town, all right. It's a little harder to find it in the people.
