Quotes from

Pa Danby: There's always some tramp that's good with a gun that can be hired.
Luke Danby: Yeah, but you always said that the Danbys fight their own battles.
Pa Danby: Well, maybe I was talkin' 'bout another branch of the family.


Mayor Olly Perkins: [talking about Prudy] She's had some terrible shocks this year. She got wealthy almost overnight - I think maybe it unhinged her a little bit. Then she was always kind of big for her age and "pooberty" hit her hard - that'll do it you know.

Mayor Olly Perkins: Well, it will!

Jason McCullough: Yeah, that's usually the next thing that happens.
Mayor Olly Perkins: And then the women will start forming committees and having bazaars. And then they'll chase Madame Orr's girls out of town, or make them get married, or something even worse. But, what the hell, like you said, the law's the law, and we got to face up to it sometime.
Jason McCullough: When did I say that?
