Bellingham: Now, look, you're into me $500. I'll make it $1,000 if they stay in town and do the show tonight.
Paladin: I can try.
Bellingham: And remember my establishment has to remain in one piece.
Paladin: Well, that could happen.
Bellingham: And I've gotta be here, too. And alive, besides.
Paladin: Hello, Ben.
Ben: Paladin. Nobody gun you down yet?
Paladin: They keep trying.
Ben: Good luck to them.
Charles: When (Paladin) began issuing orders in that tone of voice. I came close to striking him, if you hadn't held my arm.
Victoria: I did?
Paladin: This is not a theatrical costume I am wearing. This isn't a toy. It's a gun. There are six bullets in it, possibly six lives, and it's part of my working gear.
Jackson: How much you paying?
Bellingham: Oh, roughly $100. (Jackson glares at him) Uh, roughly. Smooth it out, it's more like $500. That's it, $500. Uh... $1,000.
Jackson: Then that's what I'm getting.
Bellingham: Now, wait a minute, Mr. Jackson. You gotta let a man put by a little money for his old age.
Jackson: Maybe you won't need it. I'll take the job.
(Bellingham hints that a gunfight between Paladin and Jackson could be a financial bonus)
Paladin: Mr. Bellingham, you are a showman.
Bellingham: Yeah, it'd be an attraction folks would talk about around here for years.
Paladin: And only one performance.
Bellingham: That's right, only--only one. That would be kind of a drawback, wouldn't it?
Jackson: I don't expect much trouble.
Bellingham: Now, now that's the way I like to hear you fellows talk. No trouble, we all just have a rip-roaring time, and then settle it kind of peaceable-like. That's Mr. Paladin's job here--kind of a, a spreader of, of, of sweetness and, and peace.
Paladin: Ben, you'd better ask the lady's husband about this.
Victoria: Of course he's my husband. What sort of woman did you take me for?
Jackson: Well how come you got different names?
Victoria: We're actors, not people.
(Paladin tosses Jackson's gun to Mathews)
Mathews: What do I do with it, I'm not familiar with a gun!
Victoria: He's very good with a sword.
Paladin: Nothing to it. Just close your eyes and squeeze; in a crowd like this you're bound to hit a few.
Vincent Price stood 6'4" and seemed to tower over R. Boone in a scene in which they both leap to their feet from their places at a dining table.
The Shakespearean actors were based on an actual acting couple, although the timing is roughly forty years previous to Paladin's era.
Lucia Elizabeth Bartollozzi, (June 1797-Aug 8, 1856) half English, half Italian, married Auguste Armand Vestris at the age of 16. He abandoned her four years later, but she continued using his name in her theater career. She was both an actress and a contralto opera singer, and, while popular in her time, was better known as a theater producer and manager. In 1838 she married Charles James Mathews (Dec 26, 1803--June 24, 1878), an English actor known for his ability to handle French-speaking roles.They did a tour of America that same year, apparently to lukewarm reviews.
