Appling: Do you know a man called Luke Grayson?
Stagecoach Station Agent: Sure! Who don't?
Todd Grayson: Well, he was supposed to meet this stage.
Stagecoach Station Agent: Well now, he ain't gonna meet this one or any other. You'll find him over yonder.
[the stagecoach agent points to the undertaker's shop]
Appling: You don't mean he's dead?
Stagecoach Station Agent: Now Ab Jenkins ain't buried a live one recently, however, I think the townspeople would have been willing to make an exception in this case.
Ben Cartwright: [referring to Todd] You can't keep him behind bars. He's not a criminal! He's a 16-year-old kid!
Sheriff Roy Coffee: With a 16-year-old gun. Ben, do you realize if that kid was just a split second faster, you wouldn't be around anymore to watch either one of them grow any older?
Eric 'Hoss' Cartwright: He's right, Pa. A sidewinder is just as poisonous the day he's hatched as when he's full-grown.
Ben Cartwright: Well, we're not talking about sidewinders, we're talking about a boy. Besides, the fangs of this one have already been pulled.
[Ben drops Todd's gun on Roy's desk]
Sheriff Roy Coffee: And I aim to see that he don't grow another set.
