Quotes

Lucy Summerton: [Last lines] John, we just can't let him ride away. If it wasn't for him...

Dr. John Storrow: Yes, he changed things for everybody in town. But, unfortunately, there's nothing we can do for him. I'll tell you one thing, none of us will ever forget the day that Bart Allison spent in Sundown.

Otis, the Bartender: Doc, when you have been tending bars as long as I have, you wouldn't expect so much out of the human race.

Lucy Summerton: [to Bart] Look, when you're in love the way you must have been, the truth isn't an easy thing to face up to. No man, including Tate Kimbrough, can take another man's wife away from him unless she really wants to be taken. So maybe you didn't lose anything that was really very worthwhile.

[He grabs her as she is leaving, and she slaps his face. He slaps her rump out the door]

[Discussing Sundown's town boss Tate Kimbrough]

Bart Allison: Is he a big man in Sundown?

Sam: The biggest! He's got that town in his fist and he's squeezin' it hard. Ain't heard folks complain much. Guess they're all scared.

Bart Allison: I'm glad to hear he's doing so well. When a man's riding high, the ground comes up and hits him a lot harder when he falls.

Sam: You just stood up in church and told Kinbriugh you was goin' to kill him? Bart, you must be plum crazy!

Bart Allison: I'm doin' this my own way, Sam. For three years I've hunted Kimbrough, but he didn't know it. Before I settle with him, I want him to know he's bein' hunted.

Sam: [after a bullet shot through the window whistles near Sam's head] You ain't huntin' him no more. He's huntin' you.

Mr. Baldwin, the Barber: I hadn't noticed Mr. Summerton had lost anything, Doc. He's done pretty well the last couple of years.

Charles Summerton: Perhaps you haven't noticed it, but I've lost more than anyone else. I lost my self-respect.

Sam: [to Bart] Oh, well, we'll both be as dead as a pulled beef by suppertime anyway, but I sure ain't hankerin' to try to argue my way past old St. Peter on an empty stomach.

Spanish, Sheriff's Deputy: [Groaning as the doctor removes his shirt to tend his gashed arm wound] Uhhhhh!

Sam: [Sarcastically] Ain't it lucky you brought the iodine, Doc?

Sam: Bart, I think you done a fool thing. After all that searching around, it seems like you would have been satisfiedl to just kill him on sight.

Bart Allison: Even a rattler gives a warning.

Sam: Oh, yeah, well, if they give as much advance warning as you're givin' that Kimbrough, rattlesnakes would be as out-of-date as them dinosaurs.
