    • Pappyism: There are things more important than money but I've never found one.

    • Stage Rider: What kind of a town is this Silver Hill. Old Timer: Oh, mess of people, mess of buildings, messin' up the countryside.

    • Stage Driver: Hey, Old Timer, do … you see what I see? Old Timer: I don't see what you don't see. Silver Hill, it 'tis gone. Plumb wiped off the map.

    • Beau: (pulls out a deck of cards) Would you two gentlemen care for a friendly game? It'll help pass the time.
      Shanks: Those, sir, are the devil's pasteboards.
      Beau: Oh no, sir, they're mine.
      Shanks: Card playing is a vice which I do not indulge in.
      Beau: It's hardly a vice. It's provided me with a very good livelihood.
      Shanks: You mean you're a professional gambler?
      Beau: Aren't we all? Ah, you… you, uh, buy land for the railroad, I understand. Isn't that gambling of a sort?
      Shanks: I see no connection between legitimate business and shameful gambling.

    • Moody: My wife'd kill me if I got in this late after playin' poker most of the night. It'd been different if I'd won, though.
      Beau: Well, you do have to face her sometime.
      Moody: She' a lot easier to handle when the sun's shinin'.
      Beau: Aren't they all?
