Pappy: Eh, I guess I've had enough of it. A man's a fool to stay beyond his time.
Paladin: Surely you've never thought of yourself as passing that stage.
Pappy: I've had forty years of it. Not a slash nor a scar nor a bullet hole. Never spent a day behind the bars. Pappy French, since that time, was never the man to let another man get the best of him.
Paladin: Well, that's a very impressive statement, Pappy. What have you got to show for it?
Pappy: (Long pause) Forty-two dollars. And, some small silver. Hmm. That comes to about a dollar a year, don't it? Little over. You know of any Chinese coolie that'd work for that?
