Joseph Lee: [walking behind Joe Bass and his horse] What about me, sir?

Joe Bass: You seem to have an uncommon prejudice against service to the white-skinned race!
Joseph Lee: I don't mean to be narrow in my attitude. Could I ask you what's your name, sir?
Joe Bass: Joe Bass.

Jim Howie: Go get yourself some clothes on! I don't want these men gettin' any horny notions!
Kate: Stop talkin'like a Baptist preacher. If I had half the boots been stuck under my bed, I bet I could outfit the United States Cavalry!
