  • We got to stand along side of 'em so that someday they can stand alone.
  • How did I know she was married? Women aren't like cattle. They ain't got a brand on their hip to let you know when you're driving another man's stock.


Vin: I heard you were riding shotgun for the Overland Stage.
Chris: I was. My doctor told me to quit. For my health.
Vin: Why?
Chris: Too much lead in the air.

Vin: I came after you so that you'd know there was a price on your head.
Chris: How much?
Vin: Five hundred.
Chris: Dollars?
Vin: Pesos.

Vin: I wish I knew for sure.
Chris: Knew what?
Vin: Whether I'm here because Chico is a friend of mine, or if I'm just on the prod for a fight like Frank. Killing can get inside you.
Chris: And you think that's happening to you?
Vin: Why else would I be here? Sure Chico is a friend of mine. But, hell, I don't even know his last name.
Chris: Neither do I.
Vin: Don't it make you wonder?
Chris: No.
Vin: How the hell come, Chris?
Chris: Because in all the years I made my way with a gun, I never once shot a man just to see him fall. If that time ever comes, I'll throw my guns in a water bucket and walk away. So will you.

Colbee: Had me a quiet woman once. Outside she was calm as Sunday. Inside, she was wild as mountain scenery. I'm going to ride back that way again.
Luis Emilio Delgado: Where's that?
Colbee: Sonora town.
Luis Emilio Delgado: I was there once.
Colbee: Once? You mean you didn't go back?
Luis Emilio Delgado: What for?
Colbee: Well, there's over ten head of females for every male in Sonora, that's for what. And I ought to know - I went through half of them one night. And I would have got around to the rest of 'em, if I hadn't pulled a leg muscle.

Chris: He wants to know if we're going after them tonight or in the morning.
Vin: It's a big country and finding them could take a long time.
Chris: Hell, I haven't been going anywhere for ten years... and neither have you.
Vin: Ain't it the truth.

Chris: He's fast!
Frank: As fast as you are?
Chris: I'd hate to have to live on the difference.

Chris: I'm not a religious man, Father, but I'll tell you this: they need you... more now than ever.
Priest: I've failed them.
Chris: You failed yourself. You got knocked down. Get up, Father... at least as far as your knees!

Frank: [Chris watches over the Devil's Spine fallen Bandit's] If your thinking on going out there we better get at it or the hill's going to get higher to climb.
Chris: How many men does he have left?
Frank: I counted thirty. We could circle higher come from behind.
Chris: One Chance in hell!
Frank: That's better than none at all.
Chris: [sighs] Saddle the horses.
Frank: Already did.

Lopez: [Chris rides into the Devil's Spine] Buenos Tardes senor.
Chris: Buenos Tardes.
Lopez: What can we do for you?
Chris: [Looks to all the slaves] Friend of mine, holding him prisoner, I want him... and all the others.
Lopez: Just like that?
Chris: Just like that!
Lopez: You're either a very stupid or a very brave man senor. One for me and you, we'd both be dead.
Chris: That will make two of us. You've got five Winchesters pointed at your head.
Lopez: Professionals?
Chris: Professionals.
Lopez: Perhaps we should have a little talk.
Chris: We just did!
Lopez: Father, you better go and get Francisco.
Chris: Don't move Father.
Lopez: You'd kill a priest?
Chris: Only if I have to.

Chris: Well I'll be damned.
Vin: I doubt that. I doubt that very much.
