  • Quotes

    • (Knocking at the door of the sheriff's office, Paladin has the barrel of a gun shoved in his face.)
      Sheriff: State yer business!
      Paladin: I want to see the sheriff?
      Sheriff: Hand me your gunbelt. (Paladin does so, and enters to find another man aiming a gun at him.)
      Fitzgerald: Ah, could be one of them.
      Sheriff: What do you want?
      Paladin: I want to see about one of your prisoners.
      Sheriff: Yeah, I suspected that. Who are ya?
      Paladin: My name's Paladin. (Reaches inside his jacket; Fitzgerald jerks up his gun. Paladin gingerly extracts his billfold and hands it to the sheriff)
      Sheriff: These are all letters of credit. San Francisco banks seem to trust you. Guess I can, too.
      Paladin: Thank you, Sheriff.
      Sheriff: Our, uh, welcome mat must have seemed full of cockleburs, but, we gotta be very careful.
