Carrie Ann: [chuckling] Oh, my god...
Dalton: What is the joke?
Carrie Ann: Well, there's no joke. I just think I'm looking at a dead man, though.
Dalton: It seems everywhere I go, I hear that same joke.
Carrie Ann: Yeah, well, something tells me you bring it on yourself.

If somebody gets in your face and calls you a ****, I want you to be nice. Ask him to walk. Be nice. If he won't walk, walk him. But be nice. If you can't walk him, one of the others will help you, and you'll both be nice. I want you to remember that it's a job. It's nothing personal.

[admiring Doc] That gal's got entirely too many brains to have an ass like that.

Steve: Being called a **** isn't personal?
Dalton: No. It's two nouns combined to elicit a prescribed response.
Steve: What if somebody calls my mama a whore?
Dalton: Is she?

Red: How long are you gonna be in town?
Dalton: Not very long.
Red: That's what I said 25 years ago.
Dalton: Really? What happened?
Red: I got married to an ugly woman. Don't ever do that. It just takes the energy right out of you. She left me, though. Found somebody even uglier than she was. That's life. Who can explain it?

Morgan: [after being fired] What am I supposed to do?
Dalton: There's always barber college.

[after firing a drug-dealing waitress] Anybody else here dealing? I'm telling you straight — it's my way or the highway. So, anybody wants to walk, do it now.

Jimmy: Damn, boy. I thought you were good.
Dalton: Go **** yourself.
