How did Festus manage to dig a hole to bury Dixon? He had no shovel and the desert soil is very hard.
Ben: I'd rather die than be without it (the gold).
Festus: You're a mighty man, Ben Snow. But you ain't got the sense to holler suey if the hogs are eatin' you up.
Matt: Newly, I've known Festus a lot of years. Never knew a man who cared less for material things. If he's totin' that gold it's because somebody's makin' him do it.
Ben: (to Festus) You've already wasted water on him. Now you're wasting sweat on him. You're a fool.
Ben: Throw me the gun, Festus. Sorry to cheat you out of your hangin'.
Ben: (to Dixon) Now you know how a sick coyote feels when he's out of luck and friendless.
Ben: (to Dixon) Colder than a witch's kiss, ain't ya?
Matt: Least we know Festus has water now, so he might be all right.
Ben: If I didn't need you to tote, I'd shoot you in the back right now.
Festus: All right. Go ahead on, kill me. Go on. Then who's gonna tote your rotten gold fer ya. Think about that.
