Grimes: You got the money?

John Russell: Guess I brought my dirty laundry down by mistake.

John Russell: Look for yourself.

Grimes: [opens bag, pulls out a handful of clothes] Well now, what'ya suppose hell's gonna look like?

Jessie: And we got him a marble headstone. It had his name on it, and underneath, we had them put, "In the Fullness of His Years." Is that all right with you?

John Russell: I'll settle for that. I'm not on the slab.

Jessie: Well, what do you figure yours is going to read?

John Russell: "Shot Dead," probably.

Jessie: Don't people take to you, Mr. Russell?

John Russell: It only takes one who doesn't.

Jessie: That soldier would have helped you and you know it.

John Russell: I didn't ask for any.

Jessie: He didn't even have a gun.

John Russell: That's his business he don't wanna carry one.

Jessie: It takes a lot to light a fire under you, doesn't it.

John Russell: If it's alright with you, lady, I just didn't feel like bleeding for him. And even if it isn't alright with you.

Doris Blake: I've heard a lot of stories about what the Indians do to white women.

Audra Favor: I can't imagine eating a dog and not thinking anything of it.

John Russell: You even been hungry, lady? Not just ready for supper. Hungry enough so that your belly swells?

Audra Favor: I wouldn't care how hungry I got. I know I wouldn't eat one of those camp dogs.

John Russell: You'd eat it. You'd fight for the bones, too.

Audra Favor: Have you ever eaten a dog, Mr. Russell?

John Russell: Eaten one and lived like one.

Audra Favor: Dear me.

[Grimes lights a cigar]

Grimes: Smoke bother you?

Audra Favor: Would you put it out if I said it did?

Grimes: Oh, yeah. My momma taught me to remove my hat and my cigar in the presence of a lady. Whatever else I take off depends on how lucky I get.

Grimes: [after going through Favor's luggage and taking out the money] Looks like you did good and we did better.

Lamar Dean: That was pretty smart, billin' the government for food for the Indians and then keepin' the money while them poor Indians starve to death.

Grimes: You know, the thing is; he ought to be over here with us instead of standin' over there

[laughs]

Mexican Bandit: [coming up the hill, waving a red handkerchief tied to a stick] Hey, hombre!

John Russell: [Russell finishes loading his rifle and goes to see what the Mexican Bandit wants]

Mexican Bandit: Look amigo, how close you come!

[indicating the wound on his stomach]

John Russell: I tried to do better; I think you moved.

Mexican Bandit: You can be sure I move! How do you prefer them, eh, tied to a tree?

John Russell: That'd be nice.

Mexican Bandit: You like to pull the trigger, eh?

John Russell: I can do it again for you.

[Grimes has just delivered an ultimatum to Mendez and the others]

John Russell: Hey. I got a question. How are you planning to get back down that hill?

Grimes: Now you wait a minute! I'm getting back down the same way I came up! (Begins running back down the hill. Russell shoots him as he is running)

Jessie: [as Grimes crawls away after being shot] Cicero Grimes, meet John Russell.

Mexican Bandit: [Russell and Mendez have ambushed Grimes' gang] Hey, hombre! A compliment on your shooting! You put a hole in me! Whew. I never had a bellyache like this since I'm a little boy. Hey amigo! Friend! I am going to give you back this bullet.

Braden: Hey, what's going on?

Jessie: I'm moving you out. I want you to take your socks, your cigar stubs, your long johns, and your nickel-plated sheriff's badge, and amble back down the hall to your own room.

Braden: I like it here.

Jessie: Can't quite remember how you got squatter's rights in here, anyhow. Seems to me you came by one night to ask for an extra blanket and stayed a year.

Braden: I been working since I was ten years old, Jessie, cleaning spittoons at a dime a day. It's now thirty years later, and all I can see out the window here is a dirt road going nowhere. The only thing that changes the view is the spotted dog lifting his leg against the wall over there. Saturday nights, I haul out the town drunks. I get their 25-cent dinners and their rotgut liquor heaved up over the front of my one good shirt. I wear three pounds of iron strapped to my leg. That makes me fair game for any punk cowboy who's had one too many. No, Jess, I don't need a wife. I need out.

Henry Mendez: You can be white, Mexican, or Indian, but I think it pays you to be a white man for a while. Put yourself on the winning side for a change.

John Russell: Is that what you are?

Henry Mendez: Well, a Mexican's closer to it than a White Mountain Apache, I can tell you that!

John Russell: The dead are dead. You ought to bury them.

Jessie: I'm sure that's good advice. Trouble is, Mr. Russell, I think you feel the same way about the living.

John Russell: Glad to buy you dinner.

Jessie: There's a lot of men who'll do that, Mr. Russell.

John Russell: Well, I'd just as soon make it breakfast.

John Russell: Hit something, Mendez, first the men, then the horses.

Henry Mendez: I don't know. Just to sit here and wait to kill them?

John Russell: If there was some other way, we'd do it.

Henry Mendez: Maybe we can keep going and try to outrun them.

John Russell: If you run, they're gonna catch you, they're gonna kill you. You believe that more than you believe anything.

Henry Mendez: All right.

John Russell: And try not to puke. You may have to lie in it for a long time.

John Russell: You better put down that gun. You got two ways to go, put it down or use it. Even if you tie me, you're gonna be dead.

Grimes: You will be all right.

Audra Favor: I'll be *all right* here.

Grimes: One way or another, you're comin' with us.

Lamar Dean: [Russell has climbed to the top of the stage] What are you doin' up there?

John Russell: Gettin' my things.

Lamar Dean: You figurin' on going some place?

John Russell: Why stay here?

Lamar Dean: Just how far do you thin you're gonna get?

John Russell: That's to find out.

Lamar Dean: [takes one waterbag] Now how far did you say you were gonna get?

Henry Mendez: Leave us some water!

Lamar Dean: [shoots the remaining waterbag] Now how far?

John Russell: Oh about as far as Delgado's.

Lamar Dean: [stops, turns and looks back] What does that mean?

John Russell: Maybe if we all get thirsty we'll go to Delgado's and get some "mezcal."
