    • Paladin: Hey Girl, are you still on duty? Hey Girl: Eternally, Master.

    • Paladin: Mr. Cutter, I didn't come here to collect your taxes, I came here to make you a proposition. Cutter: Well, from here your bargaining position don't look too good. Paladin: Oh? Well just how many head of cattle do you suppose the hide scroungers and the rustlers have got? Cutter: Well, I don't know, it's hard to tell. Paladin: Well, you could tell exactly if you'd help me collect the taxes. And I think you're just about the only man in this territory strong enough to do it.

    • Cutter: (about Turner) Well, it's cinch he didn't sprout wings and fly off, as cussed as he is.

    • Turner: Give it another sip there, Ham. (Ham tastes the moonshine, wheezes and staggers against a tree.) Ham: It's a mite greeny yet, Paw. Turner: Know, you got some bad woman ways about you, Ham. (Takes a drink) Ahh. That there is as smooth as hickory bark. Ham: Yessir, if you say so, Paw.

    • Turner: (Offers Paladin his jug) Hep yourself. Cutter: Where's the boys? Turner: Boys, uh, clean gone. Cutter: All three of them? Turner: Yeah. Yeah, we had us a fuss. I, uh, caught 'em cussin' on the Sabbath, that's what I caught 'em doing. Ain't a man to stand for that.

    • According to Hal Needham, when he took the fall out of the tree onto the "catcher" camouflaged on the riverbank, one of his legs turned out and hit the outer framework of the catcher. His leg broke and he bounced on down into the river and had to be carried out. He stated that, during the course of his stunt career, he broke fifty-six bones, including his back--twice.
