[Tyreen shoots him in the back of the head]


Colbee: Had me a quiet woman once. Outside she was calm as Sunday. Inside, she was wild as mountain scenery. I'm going to ride back that way again.
Luis Emilio Delgado: Where's that?
Colbee: Sonora town.
Luis Emilio Delgado: I was there once.
Colbee: Once? You mean you didn't go back?
Luis Emilio Delgado: What for?
Colbee: Well, there's over ten head of females for every male in Sonora, that's for what. And I ought to know - I went through half of them one night. And I would have got around to the rest of 'em, if I hadn't pulled a leg muscle.


Lyle Gorch: All your fancy plannin' and talkin' damn near got us shot to pieces over a few lousy bags of washers. Well, this was goin' to be me and Tector's last job before we quit and headed south. We spent all our time and money a-gettin' ready for this!
Pike Bishop: You spent all your time and money runnin' whores in Hondo while I spent my stake settin' it up.

Dutch Engstrom: [laughing] And Pike was dreamin' of washers... you were matching whores... in tandem!
Lyle Gorch: What's that?
Tector Gorch: That's one behind t'other.
Lyle Gorch: That's right! That's what we was doin'!
