Woodrow Call: Didn't you hear me? I said get your boots off

Dan Suggs: Damned if we will. I said we were horse traders

Gus McCrae: We're more persuaded by the bodies we just buried. Get your boots off

Dan Suggs: I don't know what the hell you're talkin' about

Gus McCrae: You're a black liar sir

Dan Suggs: Just ask Jake if we didn't buy them horses

Woodrow Call: 'dyou buy them three cowboys you shot? 'dyou buy them two farmers you burned? Pea, you & Newt get your ropes; tie 'em up

Jake Spoon: Oh you don't need to tie me up, Newt. Hell I ain't killed anybody. I just fell in with these boys to get me through the territory; hell I was gonna leave 'em first chance I got

Gus McCrae: I wish you'd taken that chance a little earlier, Jake; a man who'll go along with five killin's, takin' his leave a little slow. Go ahead Newt

Jake Spoon: Pea, you know me; I ain't no killer. Deets you know it too. Gus I ain't no criminal; now you know that. It was Dan that killed them two sod-busters. Hell I didn't kill nobody

Dan Suggs: You shut your damn mouth, Spoon

Woodrow Call: Put 'em on their horses

Roy Suggs: Where's he goin'?

Gus McCrae: Pick out a tree to hang you from, son

Jake Spoon: Gus, I...

Gus McCrae: You know how it works, Jake: you ride with an outlaw, you die with an outlaw. I'm sorry you crossed the line

Jake Spoon: I didn't see no line, Gus. I was just tryin' to get through the territory, without gettin' scalped; that's all

Gus McCrae: I'm sure that's true, Jake
