Quotes from

Randy McCall: Ah, you know, Quirt, I hate to shoot people. Remember I shot a wattie once up in Montana. I dreamed about it all the next night. And then, of course, there's always witnesses. And then you got to shoot the witnesses.


Dr. Mangrum: If I felt cynical, this would be a good opportunity to observe that we're about to see a perfect example of "an eye for an eye", et cetera. Unfortunately, I can't quote chapter and verse... and I'm too tired to be cynical.


Territorial Marshal Wistful McClintock: You know, Quirt, I always figured on using a new rope when hangin' you... because I kind of respected ya. You never took the best of things and all your men went down looking at ya.
