Nick Adams Quotes:

Brock Mitchell: Clay's right - trouble grows around me like weeds. Everyone I touch... I shouldn't of come back. I'm leaving.
Tracy Mitchell: All right, you leave again, but not without me. You think I tried to keep the ranch goin' for myself? I don't want it without you; I don't want any part of that loneliness again. You hit the trail, I hit it with you. You live in the saddle - a saddle bum - I live it with you. You can't run away from it any more, Brock. I'm tired of holding the fort by myself.


Stephen Reinhart: I see it, but I don't believe it!


Susan Witley: The scent in here - it's so sweet, it's sickening!
Stephen Reinhart: It's the scent of decay.
