Pat Hingle Quotes:

Judge Adam Fenton: Pick up the badge, Mr. Cooper.
[Cooper glares at Fenton]
Judge Adam Fenton: Pick up the badge, or leave justice to me and my men.


Sam Brewster: You got him in the arm
Crane Adams: I aimed for his Reb heart.
Sam Brewster: Your performance is never up to your intentions.


Judge Adam Fenton: You think I judged him too harshly? Used him for kindling my fire of justice? Well, maybe that's inevitable when there's only one man, one court, with the power of final justice over a territory that's five times the size of most states. Mistakes? Oh, I've made 'em, Cooper. Don't you doubt about that. Don't you doubt, either, there are times sitting up there in that judgement seat I wished, I prayed, that there was someone standing between me and God Almighty - someone with the power to say, "You're wrong, Fenton. You've made an error in law - that this man deserves another trial, this man here a reprieve, this man is innocent." But until this territory becomes a state with a governor and a state court of appeals, I am the law here - all the law. If you don't like that, you can cuss me till hell freezes over... or you can join me, Cooper; even fight me. Help me turn this God forsaken territory into a state where no one man calls himself the law.
