  • Quotes

    • Tom: Now what? Do we wait for everyone to go home and try to break through?
      Bret: Aw, we do that, he's gonna come tearin' down through here like Sherman on his march to the sea. No, we gotta make our move now. I figure a variation of the old shell game is about the best shot we got.
      Tom: How's that?
      Bret: Well, with Billy as the prize, he won't wanna take a chance on splittin' his men so I figure we gotta make him...make a choice of which shell the pea is under and hope he comes up empty.
      Tom: And if he doesn't?
      Bret: That's why I'll take him in my wagon. You can run as a decoy.
      Tom: No. I dragged you into this. It should be my worry, not yours.
      Mary Lou
      : (Mary Lou) Mondragon is back up on the hill.
      Bret: We're already past the headlines, Mary Lou. And I don't have time to argue with ya, Tom. You're so worked up over this thing, you're liable to start shootin' by the time you get past the front gate. So since I'm...dealin' the cards, I wanna call the game, okay?
