[Rose gives her husband's badge to the mayor]

Rose Hood: Pin it on.

Mayor Gideon Polk: Pin it on who?

Rose Hood: On me.

Mayor Gideon Polk: Come on, Rose. You must be pulling my leg.

Erica Page: I think it's a wonderful idea. With a woman marshal, Oracle will be the hit of the Western dime novels... and what bad man would dream of shooting a woman?

Erica Page: Jake, get three thousand out of the office safe. Take your time about coming back.

Erica Page: What things, Cane?

Cane Miro: Such as who do I kill and when?

Erica Page: The local law on Saturday.

Cane Miro: The chesty marshal?

Cane Miro: Remember me?

Marshal Rose Hood: Cane Miro - wanted in three states and five territories for murder, bank robbery, stage robbery, train robbery and sundry assaults.

Cane Miro: Take a look in your ledger; see if I'm wanted in this state. I haven't checked lately.

[checking one of Rose's rifles]

Cane Miro: You ought to keep these clean.

Marshal Rose Hood: No, you aren't wanted here. If you were, I'd find a place for you with the other characters I've met this week - next to my husband in Boot Hill.

Marshal Rose Hood: What's your business in Oracle?

Cane Miro: I intend to keep it that way.

[discussing Cane's business]

Marshal Rose Hood: How long is it going to take?

Cane Miro: About five weeks.

Marshal Rose Hood: Make it five days.

Cane Miro: That's mighty charitable. I might be able to finish in five days - but that also leaves five nights. What do you do nights, Miss Marshal.

Marshal Rose Hood: Oh, I keep an eye on suspicious characters.

Cane Miro: I'm a suspicious character.

Marshal Rose Hood: I think I'll assign Joshua to you. He takes care of drunks, mad dogs and smart saddle tramps.

Cane Miro: But I'm a celebrity. You ought to give me your personal attention.

Marshal Rose Hood: I just hope I don't have to, Mr. Miro.

Jake Hayes: Why pay for something I'll do for free?

[hearing gunfire in the distance]

Marshal Rose Hood: I'm a fool! Instead of doing my job, I'm out here disgracing Scott's memory - and it's all your fault!

Cane Miro: Nothing we both do is all my fault.

Marshal Rose Hood: You may go to the red devil as far as I'm concerned.

Cane Miro: It's not coming.

Erica Page: Is that all you can say?

Erica Page: It's Joshua.

Cane Miro: Looks like he means to hold us up.

Erica Page: You'll have to get him.

Cane Miro: You'll have to pay me for it!

Erica Page: I gave you three thousand to take care of the law in Oracle. He's part of it.

Cane Miro: So you did. I should have listened to the fine print.
