Matt: [with gun pointed at Tom] Ain't you forgettin' this is my gun?

Gil: Tom, why don't you own up - that cat's too smart for you. Take a better shot than you're ever gonna be to collect that bounty. [laughs mockingly]
Tom: You think so? [shoots Gil's hat from his hand]
Gil: You ever do that again, Tom Eggers and I'm gonna split your back open.
Tom: If I ever do it again, I won't be aiming at your hat.
