    • (Jondill offers more food)
      Jondill: Ansel?
      James: No thanks, no more.
      Jondill: Mister?
      Paladin: No, but Jondill, you can cook!
      Jondill: Why, mister, you can stay here as long as you want. Ansel, you never sweet-talk me like that.
      James: No sir, but, uh, it ain't because I don't appreciate your efforts, Mr. Jondill.

    • James: You gonna take him back for trial, mister? I mean, really take him back for trial?
      Paladin: I am.
      James: A fair one?
      Paladin: I won't say that. I can't guarantee it, I don't believe it.

    • James: I hate chains on a man. I hate chains worse than death.

    • Paladin: You wanna tell me about your father?
      Jessie May: I wasn't but ten years old then, what I know.
      Paladin: A good man.
      Jessie May: Yes, sir. My pa was the king of the world. I never did have no ma. She died in my borning. But my pa was the king of the world. He spoon fed me when I was sick, tanned my hide when I was bad, he read the Bible to me every night. Taught me how to ride and rope, how not to be afraid to fight. You ask me about my pa, mister, I tell you...boy, he was just the king of the world.

    • (Jessie May rides off)
      Paladin: All right, Jondill. You can come out from behind the tent, now.
      James: Well, if you knew--why'd you let him go?
      Paladin: Well, if he's the one...he won't just keep running. He'll be out there someplace. And, with that fancy shotgun of his, I think. Besides...I didn't want to kill either one of you.
      James: I guess you could have done it, too. Maybe I was wrong.

    • James: Oh, Lord! Soon as I heard that whistling, I, I knowed it was him. He told me his, his pa used to, used to sing that tune. How he loved his pa.
