Comanche Station (1960)
Nancy Lowe: If-if you had a woman taken by the Comanche and-and you got her back... how would you feel knowing...
[implying the sexual component of her capture]
Jefferson Cody: If I loved her, it wouldn't matter.
Nancy Lowe: Wouldn't it?
Jefferson Cody: No ma'am. It wouldn't matter at all.
Dobie: A man does one thing, one thing in his life he could look back on... go proud. That's enough. Anyway, that's what my pa used to say.
Frank: He talked all the time, didn't he.
Dobie: Yeah. He was a good man. Sure is a shame.
Dobie: Yeah, my pa. He never did amount to anything.
Dobie: I still don't like it. My folks brought me up to be kind to a woman. You know, yes ma'am... no ma'am. Open doors for them. Give them my chair. Not go around killing them.
Ben Lane: Frank, take a ride up river. See if they crossed ahead of us. If they cut our track, it's gonna put us between a rock and a hard place.
Frank: You want to go to work, do you?
Frank: Making an honest living?
Dobie: Oh, no, I don't think I could do that. I could cowboy some.
Frank: Well, what will that get you? You work yourself to death for somebody and likely they will have to take up a collection to bury you.
Dobie: Me and Frank were riding together up Val Verde way. Frank was alone, same as me. And we heard about this fella who was looking for some young guns. We've been with him ever since.
Jefferson Cody: You'll end up on a rope, Dobie. You know that.
Dobie: Yes, sir.
Jefferson Cody: You could break with him.
Dobie: I've thought about that. I've thought about that a lot. Frank says, "A man gets used to a thing."
Jefferson Cody: Dobie, when we get to Lordsburg, you can ride with me for a ways. A man gets tired being all the time alone.
Ben Lane: Oh, I admit I've never had much luck when it comes to women. Oh, I've run with a few, but nothing you could call serious. Except maybe that little gal down in Sonora. She said right out that she wanted to marry me. She told everybody... everybody but her husband. Oh, he came within
[Making a finger gesture]
Ben Lane: that of doing me with a scatter gun. That taught me a lesson though - always check the brand to make sure you aren't driving another man's stock.
Ben Lane: A lot of money has a way of making a man all greed inside.
Jefferson Cody: Such as?
Ben Lane: It can get him to thinking of doing things he might not otherwise do. You know, it's a long way to Lordsburg. It wouldn't surprise me if somebody didn't try to take that woman away from you.
Jefferson Cody: Like you, for instance?
Ben Lane: Like me, in particular.
Dobie: A saddle and a shirt, that's all Frank had. It sure ain't much.
Jefferson Cody: Sure ain't.
Dobie: It wasn't his fault, though.
Jefferson Cody: No?
Dobie: No, he never knew anything but the wild side.
Jefferson Cody: A man can cross over anytime he has the mind.
Dobie: It ain't that easy. It ain't that easy at all.
Jefferson Cody: It's amazin' what an Indian will give up for a Winchester rifle and a bit of red calico! Mrs. Lowe, she's sure a handsome woman! See, I like that a man gets to thinkin' about takin' a wife and settlin' down.
Jefferson Cody: [With incredulity] You?
Jefferson Cody: [Seeing Frank has been murdered] We're gettin' out of here.
Nancy Lowe: You're not going to leave him like that?
Jefferson Cody: Yes, ma'am!
Dobie: That ain't right, Mr. Cody.
Jefferson Cody: Not talkin' about right. Talkin' about stayin' alive. I'll turn those stage horses loose. They can take care of themselves from now on.
Nancy Lowe: Mr. Cody, you can't leave here until you give that man a proper grave.
Jefferson Cody: You want to end up again belongin' to a Comanche buck?
Ben Lane: [to Mrs. Lowe] Were you mine, I'd come lookin' to find you even if I had to die in the doin'.
Nancy Lowe: Then my husband didn't send you for me?
Jefferson Cody: No, ma'am.
Nancy Lowe: Well, how... ?
Jefferson Cody: Talked to a tame Indian up Casa Verde way. Said the Comanche were holdin' a white woman, holding her for trade.
Nancy Lowe: So you came after me?
Jefferson Cody: Yes, ma'am.
Nancy Lowe: Why?
Jefferson Cody: Seemed like a good idea.
Nancy Lowe: You could have been killed.
Jefferson Cody: Yes, ma'am. Come morning we'll swing south two days. It'll put us into Lordsburg. Good night, Mrs. Lowe,
