Arthur Hunnicutt Quotes:

Zeb Calloway: I remember once there being a trapper named Parker. He run smack into a big grizzly bear. The bear sure made a mess out of Parker before we killed it. Ripped one of his ears clear off. But this child just happened to have a needle and some of this deer sinew, just like we got here. Yeah, while his ear was still hot, I picked it up and sewed it back on his head. And it growed most as good as ever.
[and a little later]
Zeb Calloway: I said growed most as good as ever. Not hardly. It seems I sewed Parker's ear on backwards. Yeah, he hated me until the day he died, on account of every time he heared a rattlesnake, he'd turn the wrong direction and step smack into it!

Boone Cardell: What's the noise about?
Zeb Calloway: They're (Indians) celebrating your wedding.
Boone Cardell: Wedding?
Zeb Calloway: You maybe don't know it, but you're a married man now.
Boone Cardell: Married? And I don't got nothing to say about it?
Zeb Calloway: Wouldn't do you no good to say it.

Capt. Quincy Wyatt: They still don't like fightin' at night. But they'll come a hootin' and a hollerin' at dawn!
Monk: It makes me fonder than ever of moonshine.
