Quotes from

Wade Hatton: Thirty years ago my father met my mother at the London Dairy Fair. He'd come down to sell some prize pigs -- big fat lovely pigs they were. My mother was down there after winning the grand prize for her roses. Roses of Sharon, enormous big things, as big as your face and nearly as beautiful. I don't suppose there were ever roses like that in the whole length and breath of Ireland. Well, what must happen? The very last day of the fair, father's pigs get out and eat up every single one of mother's prize roses -- root, stem, flower and all. Now, did any two people ever get off to a worse start than that? And yet look at them now! Six big lusty sons with score or so of prize pigs and the most beautiful rose garden in the whole of Ireland.


Wade Hatton: Well, what's the news in Dodge?
Charley: Well, just about the same as always. Gamblin', drinkin', and killin'. Mostly killin'.


Wade Hatton: You know, out here the trail boss has sometimes even got to take the law into his own hands.
Abbie Irving: Oh, yes, pioneering I believe you call it, don't you?
