Quotes from

Territorial Marshal Wistful McClintock: [after Marshal McClintock shoots Laredo and Hondo] Nothin' ever works out right. I had them dead to rights. They'd got the Baker stage - so I figured I'd watch the ruckus. You'd down them and I'd hang you. Sorta killing three 'hawks' with one stone, so to speak. Nothin'... nothin' ever works out right.
[Quirt picks up Penny and then sits in the back of the wagon with her on his lap]
Territorial Marshal Wistful McClintock: Well, I missed you again, Quirt. But I'm patient. It's only a matter of time and I hang you.
Quirt Evans: Not me, Mister. From now on, I'm a farmer.


[after Laredo visits the ranch and pays Quirt for the land, Quirt prepares to leave and puts some of the money in a can for the Worths]
Mrs. Worth: Oh no, Quirt, no!
Quirt Evans: What kind of a boarder do you think I am?
Thomas Worth: You can't do that. We'd tend to any wounded human... and not for pay.
Quirt Evans: You don't believe in force - so you can't force me to take it back.
Mrs. Worth: I'm afraid you're outwitted, Thomas.
Quirt Evans: How long have I been here?
Quirt Evans: Almost three weeks.
Quirt Evans: Kinda hate to get goin'.
Mrs. Worth: Oh, but you can't... your leg... you're in no condition to travel.
Quirt Evans: Don't worry. Your cooking's got me grained up and ready for market. Adios amigos.


[Carson's preparing to leave the Worth farm, with two baskets of food]
Frederick Carson: I just get a gnawin' hankerin' after good pies and truck like that.
Mrs. Worth: Oh, Freddy Carson!
Mrs. Worth: Yes'm.
Mrs. Worth: I want you to have some of these.
[puts some rolls in one of the baskets]
Mrs. Worth: They're awful good with coffee in the mornin'.
Frederick Carson: Makes me wanna go home and shoot my Chinee cook.
Mrs. Worth: You just come back for more any time you like; there're always plenty.
