    • Fallon: Mister, you only got one thing to bargain with and that's your life. Now, if you don't take us there, you're gonna lose the privilege of stayin' alive. Bret (referring to the other hostages): What about them? Fallon: They ain't your problem. Bret: I'm makin' 'em my problem.

    • Bret (referring to the Indians): It could be all of us against them instead of just the three of you. Fallon: I wouldn't give you a gun if they was lookin' down my throat. Bret: They are.

    • Simmons: Well I'll be a three-toed sand lizard. You sure can't tell a grass snake from a sidewinder till you get bit.

    • Bret: When opportunity scratches my back, I make the most of it.

    • Linda: What kind of a hypocrite are you? Bret: A man doesn't have to be a saint to give advice. Linda: I just don't understand you at all. Bret: Things that don't make sense sometimes add up when you look back at them.
