Steve Patrick: Well, what about 'em.
Bob Andrews: Why didn't you tell me they're all a bunch of gunslingers and outlaws.
Steve Patrick: I didn't think it made any difference to you. It doesn't to me as long as they do their job. How did you find out anyway?
Bob Andrews: They didn't make any secret of it. I heard them talking about it.
Steve Patrick: Oh?
Bob Andrews: Listen, I don't trust them. Suppose you got into some kind of trouble... Indians or rustlers?
Steve Patrick: If anything like that happened here, there is nobody I'd rather have on my side than Lynch and his men. Sure, they are gunmen, but that's the kind of men you need in emergencies.
Bob Andrews: If they stick by you.
Steve Patrick: They'll stick. They're good men. Now just forget the fact that they might once have been outlaws. They're all right.

Larry: There ain't nothin' in the wagon but a dead man.
