Sheriff: You leavin' now, Paladin?
Paladin: Still a matter of eighteen hundred dollars, my handgun, and a score to settle.
Sheriff: Score to settle? You hadn't had to gotten so mad at those two men out there, you'd be lying dead right now.
Paladin: I got some cash on the way. I owe a few debts around this town.
Sheriff: I'll settle your debts--
Paladin: I'll settle my own debts. Now what are you doing here? What do you know about this?
Sheriff: Why, I walked down when I saw a crowd gathering.
Paladin: All right, why did they gather?
(Sheriff indicates the embossed chess knight on Paladin's rifle)
Sheriff: Uh, horse's head. Same as the one on the card you left at the bathhouse.
Paladin: Is there anything this town doesn't know about me?
Sheriff: Yeah, one thing. When you leavin'?
