Buck: You're a doctor-type fella, aren't ya?
Nathan Jackson: Yeah, I suppose.
Buck: Uh-huh. Um, you've heard about this animal magnetism thing, haven't you? I mean, women can smell it on you. Now, medically speaking, if a man's got it, it's not his fault, right? I mean, it's more like a condition, it's like, uh, it's like a rash or an ailment. It won't ever go away, will it? It won't...will it?
Maude Standish: Raised you better than that.
Ezra: Raised me? Did you say raised me? Come now, mother. You didn't raise me as well as a... as a stray cat raises a litter. You dumped me remember? At every aunt and uncle's home you could find. Unless you needed me... for a con.

John "J.D." Dunne: What are you tryin' to do to me, Buck?
Buck: Can I help it if I have animal magnetism?
John "J.D." Dunne: What?
Buck: Animal magnetism. I read about it in a magazine. It-It's a power I got no control over. Once women get a sniff of it, what can I do?
John "J.D." Dunne: Take a bath!
[Maude leaves the saloon after winning a poker game]
Josiah: You need some help carryin' my money?
[Josiah prepares to deal]
Josiah: All right, gentleman, this game is called "Read 'em and Weep".
John "J.D." Dunne: I'm out.
Vin: I'm already weepin'.
Josiah: This game is called... solitaire.
Vin: What do you think made him run off like that?
Chris Larabee: I don't know. He's runnin' from somethin'.
Vin: Ain't we all.
Ezra Standish: Listen, Mother, I've got this town believin' that they can trust me to protect it from people like you... Hell, from people like me.

Buck: I can't hear a word this boy is sayin'. Can you?
John "J.D." Dunne: Maybe you should try your animal maggotism on him, Buck.
Buck: That's animal magnetism, boy! And you can plainly see it only works on women.
