Hoss: (to Joe) All I did was help you end a fight that you shouldn't have started in the first place.
Joe: (to Ben) She just came out to tell us that the richest man in the world can have anything he wants in the world, including the Ponderosa.
Ben: You use words very well, Hackett. But you distort their meaning. We all build empires. Not as big as yours possibly but we build them. Perhaps it's only one man raising a family or earning a living. There's one big difference between us. In order to fulfil your ambition, you'd as soon destroy as create. That's your sickness. At the end it'll destroy you.
Maria: Charles, please. Leave the Cartwrights alone. You saw them out there. They're a happy, contented, loving family.
