Taw Jackson: Where's Lomax?

Wes Fletcher: In Rondado... at the Oriental Palace. Billy Hyatt's in Chabisco.

Taw Jackson: Levi?

Wes Fletcher: He's down by Mesquitte with Colita's gang.

Taw Jackson: What about the shipment?

Wes Fletcher: The big one's four days from now.

Taw Jackson: Doesn't give us much time.

Frank Pierce: Get fresh horses - I want you in Rondado before sun-up. Find Lomax. I want him to kill Taw Jackson. I'll pay him anything he wants.

Hammond: You'd pay him anything, sir?

Frank Pierce: I'll go for ten thousand.

Hammond: Hell, Mr. Pierce, we'd be willing to do it for a lot less than ten thousand dollars.

Frank Pierce: If you could! Lomax is the one man that can, so get moving.

Shack: Boss, you know the way they feel about each other, Lomax would probably ride all the way over here and kill him for nothin'.

Frank Pierce: Unless there's money in it, Lomax ain't goin' to do nothin' for nothin'... and I want Taw Jackson dead!

Lomax: What made you think I wouldn't kill you?

Taw Jackson: Curiosity.

Lomax: Well, you're still alive. Now what's to keep you that way?

Taw Jackson: Money.

Lomax: How much?

Taw Jackson: Your share will be over a hundred thousand.

Lomax: That's what I've always said the world needs... more simple understanding to bring people together!

Taw Jackson: Did you know why Pierce wanted you to kill me?

Lomax: Sure, so he could legally steal your land once he found there was gold on it. You were a hard-working rancher defending your property, yet it's you who gets shot, framed and sent to jail. I always thought that was kind of amusing.

Taw Jackson: Well, it's nice to find a fellow with a keen sense of humor.

Lomax: Well, I guess you don't know about his new toy - a little iron-plated thing he calls "The War Wagon."

Taw Jackson: It takes an average shipment of fifty thousand in gold from Emmett to the railhead in El Paso 43 1/2 miles away.

Lomax: Then there are a few guards...

Taw Jackson: Thirty-three of 'em. Twenty-eight outriders and five in the coach. Each man is armed with a Henry repeating rifle, two Colts and two hundred rounds of ammunition.

Lomax: What's all this got to do with me?

Taw Jackson: We're going to take that wagon.

Lomax: We are? Have you taken a look lately at the cemetery in Emmett? There's a bunch of cheap wooden crosses in one corner all kind of crowded in together. That's the tribute to the last fools who tried to stop The War Wagon. Like facts? A dollar fifteen for the casket, twelve cents for the crosses - Pierce foots the bill. A dollar twenty seven seems a poor price for a man's life - especially mine.

Taw Jackson: In four days, Pierce is going to make the biggest gold shipment ever made out of the territory - a half a million dollars.

Lomax: How are we goin' to take it? With the Prussian army?

Taw Jackson: With three other fellas. Five of us.

Lomax: Five. I'm kind of glad I didn't kill you tonight - you're funny as hell!

[Lomax agrees to join Taw Jackson's gang]

Lomax: One condition.

Taw Jackson: What's that?

Lomax: My time from now till the robbery costs you one hundred dollars a day... if I fire my gun - five hundred.

Lomax: Haven't got that kind of money.

Lomax: I'll take a marker against your share of the gold.

Taw Jackson: It's a deal.

Levi Walking Bear: Dumb Indians!

Taw Jackson: Looks like they're getting ready to move out.

Levi Walking Bear: They are. Squaws, old men, children - Pierce has starved them out. He'll have all the land now.

Taw Jackson: What about Wild Horse?

Levi Walking Bear: He and the warriors are stayin', but Pierce will hunt them down, too. Dumb Indians.

Taw Jackson: And you're smart?

Levi Walking Bear: Sure! Because I've learned to live in the white man's world and do what they do. Grab all you can, anytime you can.

[Taw and Levi negotiate with Chief Wild Horse for his warriors' assistance in their attack on The War Wagon]

Levi Walking Bear: He says your enemy is his enemy.

Taw Jackson: Good!

Levi Walking Bear: No. He says he will lose too many braves.

Taw Jackson: Ask him, "Does he ride with warriors, or women?"

Lomax: You know, Pierce upped the ante on you. You're worth twelve thousand to me... dead.

Taw Jackson: And a hundred thousand alive.

Lomax: One's a gamble, the other's a sure thing.

Taw Jackson: Lomax, nothing's a sure thing.

Lola: [from the bedroom] Precious?

Lomax: Well, I didn't feel much like shooting you this morning anyway... partner.

Taw Jackson: Neither did I... precious.

Taw Jackson: The plans have changed. The Kid wants to use nitro.

Lomax: Nitroglycerine?

Taw Jackson: Which is in a safe that you'll have to open.

Lomax: Forget it! I'm not gonna be anywhere near that drunk kid and nitro.

Taw Jackson: Lomax, that cuts it! Nobody takes a half a million sittin' on their backside. You'll either quit acting like a prima donna or we'll call the whole thing off.

Lomax: All right, but it'll cost you two thousand dollars more of your share.

[during the fight with Wild Horse's braves, the wagon with the stolen gold hidden in the flour barrels flips over spilling it's contents among the grateful Indian women]

Lomax: They're picking it clean! Why didn't you stop 'em?

Taw Jackson: Well, just how do I go about that?

Levi Walking Bear: I'm afraid Taw's right, Lomax. They'll fight you.

Lomax: Shut up, you Indian!

Levi Walking Bear: I know my people. To them it's flour.

Lomax: Flour? What about the gold?

Levi Walking Bear: As far as they know, it's just food.

Lomax: Oh great, just great. I'm out a hundred thousand of my share, two thousand from Levi...

[to Levi who is riding off towards the Indians sifting through the barrels of flour where Taw's gang has hidden the gold dust]

Lomax: Where are you going?

Levi Walking Bear: Back to my people.

Lomax: Now what am I supposed to do, live with the Indians for the next year and open up a bakery? And with Pierce dead, it doesn't even pay to kill you any more!

[last lines]

Lomax: How much is there and what did you do with it?

Taw Jackson: A hundred thousand. I hid it.

Lomax: Where?

Taw Jackson: I'll let you know in about six months.

Lomax: Six months? I want it now!

Taw Jackson: Now it wouldn't be smart to start flashing gold dust around right after a robbery would it?

Lomax: What am I supposed to do in the mean time, huh?

Taw Jackson: Well, for one thing, you better make damned sure I stay alive.

Lomax: That's a twenty-four hour a day job!

Taw Jackson: That's your problem... partner.

Billy Hyatt: Say, ah, how come you're married to Wes?

Kate: I ain't really. He bartered me.

Billy Hyatt: Bartered you?

Kate: My folks traded me for twenty dollars and a horse. They's poor.

Billy Hyatt: Me, I'd call that a lot worse than poor.

Kate: Ain't much never mind. 'Bout the same here as it was with them. Get your work done, keep your mouth shut.

Billy Hyatt: Twenty dollars and a horse. Seems to me you'd be worth... a little more than that.
