Victor Mature Quotes:

Demetrius: Until now you only remembered what you did to a man. The wrong, and your shame. But now - you remember the man.


Col. Frank Marston: [after being saved from the bear trap by Jed] She wouldn't let you do it, would she?
Jed Cooper: You're lucky, that's all.
Col. Frank Marston: Luck had nothing to do with it. I know my wife pretty well. She's a fine person.
Jed Cooper: Fine people can make mistakes too.


Gus: Sorry about the Colonel back.
Jed Cooper: I ain't glad.
Gus: Jed, you did right. And I'm proud of you. Makes me feel as though I didn't bring you up too bad after all.
Jed Cooper: I didn't do it for you, Gus.

Jed Cooper: I ain't?
Gus: No. There's two kinds of love, Jed. The way you love and the way a christian does. She can't be had your way.
Jed Cooper: How the Christians do?
Gus: Well, they begin with... you don't pine for another man's wife.
Jed Cooper: Never?
Gus: Well, maybe sometimes. But a good Christian fights it off.
Jed Cooper: How?
Gus: Well, he gots himself another woman.
Jed Cooper: You mean a Christian loves a woman he don't like, because he can't get the one he wants? I call that real sneaky!
