Mayor Harper: Well, here it is. Some of us feel by rights you should split it.
Barber: You couldn't have done it alone.
Paladin: I didn't say I could. But since Melisssa has your guns and your pledges and that's all she asked for, I will accept your money since that's all I asked for.
Melissa Griffin: That's fair I suppose but of course I don't have your pledge.
Barber: Ain't you going her way?
Paladin: Heraclitus says that all ways are the same way. And it could be that he's right.
Paladin: You are beautiful. And your faith is beautiful, but sometimes the essence of beauty is its fragility. And Bugbear is not a good place to test it.
Melissa Griffin: Are you afraid of a test?
Melissa Griffin: Neither am I.
Paladin: Perhaps we could strike some kind of compromise. I make it a practice never to wear a gun when I'm having dinner with a lady.
Melissa Griffin: Perhaps that's just when you should keep your powder dry, Mr. Paladin.
Paladin: Well, you are a woman of great determination.
Melissa Griffin: Does that frighten you? It's frightened every other man.
Paladin: No. But I do puzzle about you.
Melissa Griffin: Perhaps you imagine me leading the martyrs into the Colosseum.
Paladin: Oh, no. I should be very concerned for the lions in that case.
