Sheriff Hampton: [to Uncle John] You're the lawyer. You're the talker.

John Gavin Stevens: [to Chick as he looks out over the crowds in town] They don't know it out there, but he does. He knows he's finished. He's running through his last few pennies of freedom, and, I reckon, he's gonna spend them the only way he knows... on revenge.

Crawford Gowrie: Miss Haversham, I'm not gonna touch yuh now. You're an old lady, but you're in the wrong. You're fightin' the whole county, but you're gonna get tired, and when yuh do get tired, we're gonna go in.
Miss Eunice Habersham: [Unflustered] I'm goin' for eighty, and I'm not tired yet.
