    • Deputy: Just the same I still say he was a good man.
      Paladin: Who? Culp!?
      Deputy: That's right! I knowed him since he was fifteen years old. He was a good man in his time and in his place!
      Paladin: You mean he was good to his mother. He didn't beat the dog.
      Deputy: Mister, in a hard land and hard times he did the right the river by. Now don't you take that away from him. Speak good of the dead! Didn't you ever hear that?
      Paladin: "Murder most foul is in the best it is. But this, most foul, strange, and unusual"...Rennie, I don't forgive him.
      Deputy: And the others?
      Paladin: He pulled the trigger, that's the only difference.
      Deputy: No. I say they watched.
      Paladin: You know better than that!
      Deputy: I say they watched! I say they never would have hung him!
      Paladin: You want me to stop.
      Deputy: Yes!
      Paladin: They wouldn't have hung him? He died by mistake?
      Deputy: That's right.
      Paladin: And for nothing?
      Deputy: (Hesitates) That's right!
      Paladin: Well, let it be the same with them--by mistake and for nothing!
      Deputy: I can't do anything about them.
      Paladin: Rennie, there's something evil loose in this town. I'll give them their choice. They put these {chains} on, or they die.
