James Garner Quotes:

Cathy: Fred, what's the matter?
Fred Williams: The matter? It's one thing for a girl to be - to go wrong. A guy'd have to be pretty narrow-minded not to overlook a thing like that. But to make me a miserable guinea pig? To use a guy for, for an experiment? To be a dirty, contemptible... *sociologist*! That's about as low as you can get!


Lt. Cmdr. Charles E. Madison: War isn't hell at all. It's man at his best; the highest morality he's capable of. It's not war that's insane, you see. It's the morality of it. It's not greed or ambition that makes war: it's goodness. Wars are always fought for the best of reasons: for liberation or manifest destiny. Always against tyranny and always in the interest of humanity. So far this war, we've managed to butcher some ten million humans in the interest of humanity. Next war it seems we'll have to destroy all of man in order to preserve his damn dignity. It's not war that's unnatural to us, it's virtue. As long as valor remains a virtue, we shall have soldiers. So, I preach cowardice. Through cowardice, we shall all be saved.


[Jason and Prudy are talking about how the Danbys are gathering to come after the sheriff]
Prudy: Have you figured what you're gonna do?
Jason McCullough: More or less.
Prudy: What?
Jason McCullough: Oh, I thought I might just leave town. Just get out of town before they ride in - just ride out and keep on goin'.
Prudy: I don't believe it.
Jason McCullough: Well, I don't know why not. I've never made any secret of the fact that basically I'm on my way to Australia. And I don't think I'm gonna find a better time to get started than right now. Besides, uh, I don't like the odds.
