Coogan: Only birds and fools wanna fly and I ain't either one.
Coogan: There's no funny drunks. Not to the person who has to live with 'em.
Coogan (about Harris): Maybe a couple of nights dryin' out in a cell'll bring him to his senses.
Emily: It never has before.
Harris: Hec, you can't let me out. It's against the law. I was sentenced to 30 days and I want my 30 days.
Stamp (about Bailey and Goodwin): What if one of them's the killer and runs?
Hec: That's as good as a confession.
Bailey (to Goodwin): You know, you'd make somebody a good wife if you weren't such a nag.
Nellie: What makes a man want to fly?
Goodwin: You could shorten that to what makes a man.
Nellie: Have you ever considered buyin' a piece of land and workin' with your hands?
Goodwin: Yeah, and I woke up screamin'.
Hec (to Goodwin): I hate to see a man drink alone.
Hec (to Harris): The only thing I know about you is it's too damn easy for you to find an excuse to take the next drink.
Coogan: You had a bad night or something?
