Yancey Derringer: I wouldn't stand to close to me tonight. I'm strictly hard luck - it might rub off.
Captain Amos Fry: It already has.
Yancey Derringer: Are you losing, too?
Captain Amos Fry: No, I have orders to place you under arrest.
Captain Amos Fry: He's right, Pahoo. This is bad medicine. He can't escape it - it must be faced.
Captain Amos Fry: He's in here, sir. Solitary confinement.
John Colton: Solitary?
Senator Tyson Yardley: Mr. Colton, the prisoner is being held incommunicado. He will see no one.
John Colton: Except myself.
Senator Tyson Yardley: Including yourself, Mr. Colton. He shall see no one except his defense counsel.
John Colton: And that man, Senator, will be me! Open up.
Yancey Derringer: Mr. Colton, come on in, sit down. There isn't much of a view, but the rats are friendly.
John Colton: The gun that murdered Lincoln...
Yancey Derringer: ...was a .44 calibre single-shot muzzle loading deringer made in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It's spelled with one "R" - my name is spelled with two. No relation.
John Colton: Did you ever own such a gun?
Yancey Derringer: Yes, two.
John Colton: I see. You'd better tell me about it.
Yancey Derringer: It was a present from my daddy before the war. It was a birthday present. He sent to Philadelphia for them. He said that no well-dressed poker player could fill a flush without them.
Yancey Derringer: I was in and out of Southern Maryland from '63 on, the same time that Booth was there.
John Colton: Then Yardley has a beautiful circumstantial case against you.
Yancey Derringer: It's true, but I have one thing in my favor.
John Colton: What?
Yancey Derringer: You.
Senator Tyson Yardley: You are aware that the prisoner attempted to escape last night?
John Colton: You mean someone attempted to murder the prisoner last night. To prevent his appearance at the trial, do you think, Senator?
John Colton: [to Pahoo] No matter what happens, don't try to help Yancy.
Madame Francine: No use telling him that, Mr. Colton. If you can't save Yancy, Pahoo will try.
John Colton: Madame Francine, I'm afraid he would die trying.
Obadiah: I don't think that would bother him, Mr. Colton.
Madame Francine: Is there any more trouble you can get into?
Yancey Derringer: Francine, from now on, it's trouble I want to get out of, believe me.
Madame Francine: I wouldn't believe you if you swore on a poker deck.
John Colton: But how did you know?
Yancey Derringer: His voice.
John Colton: Just that?
Yancey Derringer: Mr. Colton, when you're behind enemy lines meeting a spy in the dark, one thing that you never forget is his voice.
John Colton: I don't think he'll forget yours, either.
Madame Francine: Gentlemen, the drinks are on me.
John Colton: Captain Fry, get that man to a hospital - a military hospital.
