Chuck Connors Quotes:

Buck Hannassey: Remember, the Terrills ain't no friend of ours.
Julie Maragon: I'll choose my own friends.
Buck Hannassey: Oh, that won't do. You got to be on one side or the other. You can't have it both ways.


Porter Ricks: [Porter consoles his wife about possibly losing their home in the hurricane] The boat is safe; we can always build another house.


[Travis has asked how he can tell if a creature has hydrophobia]
Burn Sanderson: You can't hardly tell at first, not till they get to the point of slobbering and staggering around. When you see a critter in that fix, you know for sure. But you want to watch for others that ain't that far along. Now, you take a bobcat or a fox. You know they'll run if you give 'em the chance. But when one don't run, or maybe makes fight at you, why, you shoot him and shoot him quick. After he's bitten you, it's too late.
