Quotes

Blondie: You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.

[Tuco is in a bubble bath. The One Armed Man enters the room]

One Armed Man: I've been looking for you for 8 months. Whenever I should have had a gun in my right hand, I thought of you. Now I find you in exactly the position that suits me. I had lots of time to learn to shoot with my left.

[Tuco kills him with the gun he has hidden in the foam]

Tuco: When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

Blondie: [counting Angel Eyes' men] One, two, three, four, five, and six. Six, the perfect number.

Angel Eyes: I thought three was the perfect number.

Blondie: I've got six more bullets in my gun.

[to Tuco]

Blondie: [clicks his tongue] Such ingratitude, after all the times I saved your life.

Tuco: [trying to read a note] "See you soon, id... " "idi... "

Blondie: [taking the note] "Idiots".

[He hand the note back to Tuco]

Blondie: It's for you.

Blondie: Every gun makes its own tune.

[last lines]

Tuco: [shouting] Hey, Blond! You know what you are? Just a dirty son-of-a-b-!

Tuco: [in the cave where his friends Pedro, Chico and Ramon are hiding] If you work for a living, why do you kill yourself working?

Tuco: [to Corporal Wallace] I like big fat men like you. When they fall they make more noise. And sometimes they don't get up.

[surveying some Civil War carnage]

Blondie: I've never seen so many men wasted so badly.

Tuco: Hurrah! Hurrah for the Confederacy! HURRAH! Down with General Grant! Hurrah for General... What's his name? Lee! LEE! Ha ha. God is with us because he hates the Yanks too. HURRAH!

Blondie: [spits] God is not on our side because he hates idiots also.

[the commander of the cavalry patrol they've met reveals his blue uniform]

Blondie: You may run the risks, my friend, but I do the cutting. We cut down my percentage - uh, cigar? - liable to interfere with my aim.

Tuco: But if you miss you had better miss very well. Whoever double-crosses me and leaves me alive, he understands nothing about Tuco. Nothing!

[Chuckles, bites cigar]

Tuco: You never had a rope around your neck. Well, I'm going to tell you something. When that rope starts to pull tight, you can feel the Devil bite your ass.

Tuco: There are two kinds of spurs, my friend. Those that come in by the door; those that come in by the window.

Tuco: I'm very happy you are working with me! And we're together again.

[pause]

Tuco: I get dressed, I kill him and be right back.

Blondie: Listen, I forgot to mention... He's not alone. There's five of 'em.

Tuco: Five?

Blondie: Yeah, five of 'em.

Tuco: So, that's why you came to Tuco.

[pause]

Tuco: It doesn't matter, I'll kill them all.

[as they set out across the desert]

Tuco: what was it you told me the last time? Ah, yes..."If you save your breath I feel a man like you can manage it." And if you don't manage it, you'll die. Only slowly. *Very* slowly, old friend.

Baker: Here, this is for you. You did a good job for me.

[hands over a purse]

Angel Eyes: Oh I almost forgot. He payed me a thousand. I think his idea was that I kill you.

[they both laugh]

Angel Eyes: But you know the pity is when I'm paid, I always follow my job through. You know that.

Baker: Noo! Angel Eyes!

[Angel Eyes presses a pillow over Baker's face and shoots him through it]

Bounty Hunter: [three bounty hunters have cornered Tuco] No! No pistol, amigo! It won't do you any good. There are three of us!

Mexican Bounty Hunter: [holding a wanted poster] Hey, amigo! You know you got a face beautiful enough to be worth $2000?

Blondie: [from behind them] Yeah, but you don't look like the one who'll collect it.

[Lights a cigar]

Blondie: A couple steps back.

[the bounty hunters draw their guns but Blondie guns down all three]

Union Captain at the Bridge: The Rebs have decided that bridge is the key to this whole area. Stupid, useless bridge! Flyspeck on Headquarters' maps. Headquarters has declared we must take that ridiculous flyspeck. Even if all of us are killed. Otherwise the key'll get rusty and just be a spot on the wall.

Tuco: [trying to read a grave that is marked "Unknown"] Unk-... unk-... there's no name on it.

Blondie: [showing him the stone the name was supposed to be written on stone] There's no name here, either. See, that's what Bill Carson told me... it was the grave marked "Unknown" right beside Arch Stanton.

Stevens: You're... from Baker?

[Angel Eyes is silent, eating a bowl of stew and staring at him]

Stevens: Tell Baker that I told him all that I know already and I want to live in peace, understand? That it's no use to go on tormenting me! I know nothing at all about that case of coins.

[Angel Eyes stops eating and looks interested]

Stevens: Now that gold has disappeared, but if he'd listened we could have avoided this altogether. I went to the Army court; there were no witnesses. They couldn't uncover any more. I can't tell Baker what happened to the money. Go back and tell him that!

Blondie: [watching the soldiers fighting on the bridge] I have a feeling it's really gonna be a good, long battle.

Tuco: Blondie, the money's on the other side of the river.

Blondie: Oh? Where?

Tuco: Amigo, I said on the other side, and that's enough. But while the Confederates are there we can't get across.

Blondie: What would happen if somebody were to blow up that bridge?

Tuco: Yeah. Then these idiots would go somewhere else to fight.

Blondie: [lighting his match] Maybe.

One-armed Union soldier: [Wallace and Tuco are at the train station, handcuffed together] Hey, corporal, afraid he'll get lost? Where's the Rebel going?

Cpl. Wallace: To Hell, with a rope around his neck and a price on his head.

Tuco: Yeah... three thousand dollars, friend. That's a lot of money for a head.

[He flips the soldier's empty sleeve]

Tuco: I bet they didn't even pay you a penny for your arm.

Cpl. Wallace: [showing Tuco the Rebel spy tied to the approaching train's cowcatcher] You're a lot luckier than that one there. You get some grub, a rope and your own finish... and there isn't any partner this time to shoot you down.
