Paladin: Mr. Cutter, I didn't come here to collect your taxes, I came here to make you a proposition.
Cutter: Well, from here your bargaining position don't look too good.
Paladin: Oh? Well just how many head of cattle do you suppose the hide scroungers and the rustlers have got?
Cutter: Well, I don't know, it's hard to tell.
Paladin: Well, you could tell exactly if you'd help me collect the taxes. And I think you're just about the only man in this territory strong enough to do it.
