Sheriff Tod Shaw, Suddenly California: Suddenly.
First Driver: Suddenly what?
Sheriff Tod Shaw, Suddenly California: No no, that's the name.
First Driver: [laughs] That's a funny name for a town.
Sheriff Tod Shaw, Suddenly California: Uh huh, hangover from the old days; that's the way things used to happen here, suddenly.
First Driver: I see.
Sheriff Tod Shaw, Suddenly California: Road agents, gamblers, gunfighters.
First Driver: Well, I take it things have changed.
Sheriff Tod Shaw, Suddenly California: Uh huh. Things happen so slow now, the town council is figuring to change the name to Gradually.
First Driver: [laughs] Thanks, officer.
Sheriff Tod Shaw, Suddenly California: Pleasure, come back.

Jim Vesser: We've been surveying this route for three weeks!
McCabe: And so have we.
Bob Nelson: Don't get hot-headed Jim. Looks like it's for the courts to decide.
Jim Vesser: There's nothing in my orders that says I have to wait for any courts to make up their minds. We're going through.
Bob Nelson: Not along our stakes.
Jim Vesser: We'll throw them in the river.
McCabe: You throw one stake in the river and I'll throw you in right after it.
