Quotes

Jake Lonergan: I've been shot.

Meacham: Only two kinds of men get shot: criminals and victims. Which one are you?

Jake Lonergan: I don't know.

Meacham: You got a name, friend?

Jake Lonergan: I don't know that either.

Meacham: Just what do you know?

Jake Lonergan: English.

Ella: I told you not to look into the light.

Jake Lonergan: Yeah, right.

Meacham: Whether you end up in Heaven or Hell isn't God's plan, it's your own. You just have to remember what it is.

Ella: If it's all the same, I'd like to ride along, too.

Meacham: Yes, ma'am. Got a kid and a dog, why not a woman?

Doc: It's my fault she got took. I never should have taken her to that town.

Meacham: No, no, no. Not your fault. You'll get her back. You're setting things right. Just got to have faith. That's all.

Doc: Faith. Yeah. God's been real swell to me. I don't mean no disrespect, preacher, but either he ain't up there or he don't like me very much.

Meacham: Surely you don't expect the Lord to do everything for you, do you, Doc? You got to earn His presence. Then you got to recognize it and then you have to act on it.

Woodrow Dolarhyde: What are you all choked up about?

Emmett Taggart: I'm worried about my grandpa.

Woodrow Dolarhyde: Look. When I was just a little bit older than you are now, all this was Mexico. Word came that the Apaches was riding towards a settlement called Arivaca. My father wanted me to be a man, so made me ride out with the garrison, banging on a drum. Boy, was I scared. Well, we got there, it was too late. They were all dead and the whole place was burnt down. This settler fella came crawling out of a burning cabin. He was bad. He knew he was gonna die. Burnt bad. He rolled over, looked up into my eyes, and he said "Kill me."

Emmett Taggart: What did you do?

[takes the knife from Emmett's belt buckle]

Woodrow Dolarhyde: I took this knife off his belt and I slit his throat. Take it.

[Emmett takes the knife back]

Woodrow Dolarhyde: Be a man.
