Quotes from

Jackson: The name on the grave is... water
Tuco: In the cemetary, okay, in the grave okay! But it must have a name or a number on it! Talk, damn you!

[a dying man has information Tuco wants]
Tuco: Don't die, I'll get you water. Stay there. Don't move, I'll get you water. Don't die until later.

Blondie: If your friends stay out in the damp, they're liable to catch a cold aren't they... or a bullet.

Facts about

The bridge that Tuco and Blondie blow was an actual bridge built by Spanish army engineers. The Spanish agreed to blow the bridge only if their captain could be the one to do it. When it came to blowing the bridge the captain didn't notify Sergio Leone and just blew the bridge up without any cameras rolling. The army was so sorry with what they did that they rebuilt the bridge only to blow it up again.
The train features an armed car with a mortar type cannon. These were actually mounted on trains during the Civil War, especially where railroads had to operate near places where there was heavy fighting.
According to Eli Wallach's autobiography "The Good, the Bad and Me", Sergio Leone picked him for the role of Tuco not because of his role as Calvera in The Magnificent Seven as most people assumed but rather because of his brief role as a Tuco-like bandit in How the West Was Won.
