*Its a Big Country. Did ya ever see anything so Big. #Yes. *What. #A couple of Oceans. *Well I’ll be.

All I can say McKay is you take a helluva long time to say good-bye.

Crawl, you act like a dog, crawl like one! Crawl I said, crawl!

I got me something to say that’s about thirty years overdue. This is a mighty fine house, Major Terrill, a gentleman’s house. Those are mighty fine clothes you’re wearin’. Well…. maybe you got some of these folks fooled, but you ain’t got me fooled, not by a damn sight! The Hannasseys know and admire a real gentleman when they seen one, and they recgonize the smell of a high tone skunk when they smell one!

I’m not responsible for what people think, Pat. Only for what I am.

Now I’m not here tonight complaining about twenty-three of your brave men beating three of my boys until they couldn’t stand. Maybe they had it coming. Anyway they’re full grown and can take their lickin’s. Neither am I here complaining that you’re trying to buy the Big Muddy, to keep my cows from water. Although I will say it’s galling to see the daughter of a genuine, gentleman like Glenn Maragon under this roof! I’ll tell you why I’m here Major Terrill!! The next time you come a-bustin’ and a-blazin’ into my place, scarin’ the kids and the womenfolks, when you invade my home, like you was the law or God almighty, then I say to you, I’ve seen every kind of critter God ever made, and I ain’t never seen a meaner, lower, more pitiful yellow stinking hyprocrite than you! Now you can swallow up a lot of folks and make them like it, but you ain’t swallowing me!! I’m stuck in your craw Major Terrill, and you can’t spit me out!

Rufus): Why ain’t you dead? You let ’em run my cows off and you come back standing up! Buck): What could we do, Pa? There was twenty of them…just a few of us! Rufus): Them cows is worth more than the whole lot of ya.

Some day I’m going to have to kill you.

Son): You want me, Pa? Father): Before you was born I did.

There’s no prettier sight in the world than 10,000 head of cattle…unless it’s 50,000.

You hear me now! You’ve rode into my place and beat my men for the last time. And I give ya warning, you step foot in Blanco Canyon once more and this country’s goin’ to run red with blood until there ain’t one of us left! Now I don’t hold mine so precious, so if you want to start, here! (tossing a rifle onto the floor), you can start now!
