Quotes from

Blaise Starrett: I'm through being reasonable. I told Crane what would happen if he strung that wire.
Dan, Starret's Foreman: Blaise, we've pulled over some hard hills together, and I've rode behind you all the way. But a wire fence is a poor excuse to make a widow out of Crane's wife. What have you been thinking about all winter - Crane's barb wire fence, or Crane's pretty wife, Helen?


Helen Crane: [Dancing with Bruhn] Why did you have to do this terrible thing?
Jack Bruhn: There are things worse, ma'am, than dancing with lonely men.
Helen Crane: Please, let us go.
Jack Bruhn: Soon.
Helen Crane: Why did you have to come here?
Jack Bruhn: You should be grateful. Our coming saved the life of your husband.
Helen Crane: I don't believe Blaise would have gone through with it.
Jack Bruhn: Mrs. Crane, when my men and I leave here, there will be a showdown and you will be a widow.


Hal Crane: How long can Bruhn live?
Doc Langer, Veterinarian: Well, I gave him a big shot of morphine. It deadens pain, makes the patient feel fine, but as soon as this dose wears off, he's going to start coughing. Each cough's going to rip the lungs a little bit more. A few hours after he starts coughing, he's going to die.
