The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) Poster

Andy Devine: Link Appleyard



  • Link Appleyard : Mr. Peabody's awful hurt and he needs you bad over at his office.

    Liberty Valance : What's the matter, Mr. Marshal? Somebody have an accident?

    Doc Willoughby : So that's it, another one of your 'accidents', huh Valance? I'm looking forward to the day when it's you they'll be calling me for.

    Liberty Valance : [tossing Doc a silver dollar]  Paid in advance.

  • [Reese and Floyd are trying to get a lynch mob together after Stoddard kills Valance] 

    Tom Doniphon : Can't a man have a drink around this town in peace?

    [grabs Floyd and throws him through the door] 

    Reese : No one's bothering you, Doniphon.

    Tom Doniphon : *You* are.

    [Reese goes for his gun, and Doniphon decks him] 

    Tom Doniphon : Marshal! What are you gettin' paid for? Drag this scum out of here.

    Link Appleyard : You heard him! Now, Kaintuck and High Pockets, I deputize you to give a hand and drag this scum out of here!

    Kaintuck : Give me that b-b-b-bung st-st-starter!

    [grabs Reese and hauls him out] 

    Link Appleyard : You tell those ranchers north of the Picketwire that hired you that me, Link Appleyard, run you out of town, and I'll do it again if you ever come back!

  • Ransom Stoddard : Marshal, I was wrong the other day. But I was reading up on territorial law, and there it is, right there. Now, I'll draw up the complaint, take care of all the legal details - but you *do* have jurisdiction. Says so right there. So next time he sets foot in this town, you'll arrest him.

    Link Appleyard : Anything you say, Mr. Stoddard. I'll be tickled to... death... *what* was that? Arrest *who*?

    Ransom Stoddard : Liberty Valance.

    Link Appleyard : Arrest Liberty Val... you mean Liberty Valance? Just as I was startin' to get my appetite back.

  • Link Appleyard : The jail's only got one cell, and the lock's broke and I sleep in it.

  • Ransom Stoddard : [in Stoddard's classroom]  How you feeling this morning?

    Link Appleyard : Just fine, fine, fine.

    Ransom Stoddard : Your head cold?

    Link Appleyard : Uh, no, no. I uh.

    [sheepishly removes hat] 

  • Link Appleyard : As long as he behaves himself in this town, I ain't got no, ah...

    Ransom Stoddard : Jurisdiction.

    Link Appleyard : What he said is right. I ain't got none of it.

  • Link Appleyard : Did you know Liberty Valance is in town tonight?

    Dutton Peabody : I'd be a poor newspaperman indeed if I didn't know what everybody knows!
