    • QUOTES (10)

      • Rodney: What's it made of?
        Sandeen: First you cook the sap out of a jimson weed root. Then you dice in your peyote buttons, the sacred mushrooms, and your Nogales hemp buds. Then you lace with a quart of mescal and let simmer over a low flame for about... half an hour.
        Rodney: What'll it do to him?
        Sandeen: You ever ridden bareback on a red-eyed cougar through midnight?
        Rodney: I can't say I have.
        Sandeen: It's quite a journey. And there are no hitching rails on the moon, so it wouldn't do well to confuse the bone.

      • Irish Annie: Another week and I might never leave.
        Bret: Ah, well, another week and, uh, I might not even let you.

      • Crow: Never thought I'd see Maverick looking like that.
        Cy: I can't get him to come home.
        Guthrie: I can't even get him to talk.

      • Sandeen: I'm a white man and I say white men did it.
        Crow: White men do not commit such crimes.

      • Mary Lou (about Bret): How's he doing?
        Guthrie: Nothin' a little time won't heal.

      • Sandeen: I am an Indian trapped in a white man's body.
        Bret: You're also about three feet short of a yard.

      • Sandeen: For right now, let's just say that I'm the bridge between the red man and the white man.
        Bret: I'm glad I can swim.

      • Morado: Philo Sandeen, at last the Sweetwater Vulture is mine.
        Bret: (to Sandeen) I thought you said he was a friend of yours.

      • Morado: They call you Standing Bear?
        Sandeen: A name given me by the Sioux.
        Morado: A large name for a small weasel.

      • Bret (to Morado): Hoka hey, that's Sioux for "it's a good day to die" and Sandeen is speaking strictly for himself.
