Quotes from

Jason Meredith: You know, it takes money, capital, brains and sweat to raise cattle, but any idiot with a two-bit dog and a Winchester can raise sheep.


Jason Meredith: If I had thought about it, we would have stopped to eat north of the deadline.
Josie Minick: The what?
Jason Meredith: The deadline. We passed it about ten minutes back. Sheep to the south, cattle to the north.
Josie Minick: I don't know anything about a deadline.
Jason Meredith: Well, there's nothing complicated about it. You see, the cowmen opened up this territory and then the sheepmen tried to move in. Well, we had quite a debate. We burned a lot of powder and a lot of lead and we buried a few. And then finally we drew a line across the southeast section of the state. And the sheep stay on one side and the cattle on the other.


Josie Minick: Speed won't matter. I'm counting on surprise.
Simpson, General Store Owner: Oh, they'll be expecting it. You put a woman in pants, the rest is bound to follow.
