Pat Harrigan: You go after them in ten minutes. Get them. Get Pike and you'll be rich! If one of you tries to quit on me, I'll pay a bonus of a thousand dollars to the man that kills him.

Rev. Wainscoat: Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou nor thy sons with thee least ye shall die. Look not thou upon the wine when it is red and when it bringeth his color in the cup when it moveth itself aright. At the last, it biteth like a serpent and stingeth like an adder. Now folks, that's from the Good Book. But in this here town, it's 5 cents a glass. Five cents a glass. Does anyone really think that that is the price of a drink? The price of a drink - let him decide who has lost his courage and his pride who lies a groveling heap of clay not far removed...

Coffer: I can nail him.
Thornton: I said wait.
T.C.: What if they slip out the back?
Coffer: It's covered, ya two-bit, redneck peckerwood.

Coffer: You rode with, uh, Pike. What kind of man are we up against?

Crazy Lee: I'll hold 'em here 'til Hell freezes over or you say different.

Dutch: At least we won't have to worry about Deke Thornton.
Pike: Hell, no; not after ridin' a half a case of dynamite into the river.
Sykes: Well don't expect him to stay there. He'll be along and you know it.

Dutch: Damn that Deke Thornton to Hell!
Pike: What would you do in his place? He gave his word.
Dutch: Gave his word to a railroad.
Pike: It's his word!
Dutch: That ain't what counts. It's who you give it to!

Dutch: In the ravine south of here, you'll find the rest of the rifles in the wagon. You can have the wagon, we'll take the horses.

Mapache: [Chuckling and indicating Angel] He stole it. The mother of the girl he killed told me.
[Angel tries to escape but is caught and brought back before Mapache]

Sykes: 'They'?...Caught you didn't they, eh? Tied a tin can to your tail. Let you in and waltz you out again. Ha, ha, ha. Oh my, what a bunch. Big, tough one, eh? Ha, ha, ha. Here you are, with a handful of holes, a thumb up your ass, and a big grin to pass the time of day with. They? Who the hell is they?
Pike: Railroad men, bounty hunters, Deke Thornton.

Dutch: What's our next move?
Pike: Well, I figure Agua Verde's the closest... three days maybe. Then get the news and drift back to the border. Maybe a payroll, maybe a bank.
Dutch: Maybe that damn railroad.
Tector: That damn railroad you're talkin' about sure as hell ain't a-gettin' no easier.
Sykes: And you boys ain't a-gettin' any younger either.
Pike: We've got to start thinkin' beyond our guns. Those days are closin' fast.
