Harry Quint's entitled to a short rope. Men like that need exterminatin' so this country will be fit for decent people to live in.
This is wild country out here, ma'am. I don't think another killing's gonna help tame it. But I do believe the law will.
The law had its chance. Harry Quint stood two murder trials before and all he ever got was eight months in the Yuma Prison. Happens all the time. Men kill and then just go free to kill some more. But not here. Not this time.
