Edgar Buchanan Quotes:

Sheriff Cauthen: Hey, take it easy. They ain't gonna run out of that stuff.
Jimmy Rapp: When I stop drinking, you start worrying.
Sheriff Cauthen: It's too late. I've already started worrying.


[Destry is checking all the saloon patron's guns]
The Honorable Hiram J. Sellers, Mayor: I'm like you, I never carry a gun. I prefer a bow and arrow.


The Honorable Hiram J. Sellers, Mayor: As the poet says, "Life is real, life is earnest and the goal is but the grave." Or words to that affect. It is my sorrowful duty to inform you that one of our fellow townsmen has just made that goal. Our esteemed sheriff, Joseph Bailey, is no longer with us. In the absence of other officials, and in the interest of law and order, and in accordance with ordinance number eight thousand and, ah, six-five-four, I must appoint a temporary successor. I have considered this matter seriously, and sought the advice of prominent citizens. I have decided to appoint a sheriff, a man who is not without experience as a peace officer. A man you all love and respect, Mr... ah, what's his name again?
