  • Quotes

    • Waller: Well, you know Mr. Neal's not on my pay roll. He can leave town whenever he wants.
      Paladin: It's a disease with him, he can't leave and you know that. Now, he must be more trouble to you than he's worth. Why Neal, what did he do to you?
      Waller: The big men stuffed the opportunity in their pockets. Only thing they left was the desert; railroads got most of that.
      Paladin: So you take it right out of their hides. This time it's Neal's hide.
      Waller: When I'm done with Mr. Neal, I'll let you know. Then you can come and fetch him home to his wife.
      Paladin: All right, Waller. It's a game with you, hmmm? A cruel game. Well, let's make it a little bit more exciting. Let's play for him. You and me. For his soul. If that interests you more.
      Waller: Yes. Yes. Yes, that interests me. Playing for this man's soul?
      Paladin: That's right. Like Faustus. Play poker for his soul. And if Neal wins he can settle it his own way.
      Waller: Well, it's not likely Mr. Neal will change the habits of a lifetime. And if I recall my Faustus correctly, Mephistopheles wins out in the last act.
      Paladin: No, he was the junior partner. Lucifer was the commander-in-chief.
      Waller: Yes, yes. I won't underestimate you, Paladin, I promise you that.
