HONORS and AWARDS:.
Ed, the Sheriff: I think it was them easterners on the jury. They don't care what the custom was before; they just want the gunfights to stop now.
Billy Reynolds: So they turned a page of their calendar over on me, huh?
Ed, the Sheriff: Well, it's progress I guess you'd call it.
Jefferson Davis: I must pronounce our solemn farewell. Under these circumstances, of course, my functions - and those of my colleagues - terminate here. We but tread in the path of our fathers when we proclaim our independence - and take the hazard, putting our trust in God, and in our own firm hearts - and strong arms - we will vindicate the right as best we may.

Jefferson Davis: I see now around me some with whom I have served long; there have been points of collision. For whatever offense I have given, I ask forgiveness. Of whatever of offense there has been to me, I leave here. I carry with me no hostile remembrance. I go hence unencumbered of the remembrance of injury received, and having discharged the duty of making the only reparation in my power for any injury offered.
Jefferson Davis: Mr. President; Senators - having made the announcement which the occasion seemed to me to require - it remains only for my colleagues and myself to bid you a final - adieu.
