McGavin: Now, so long as Holly made me acting Deputy Sheriff, Zindler, we're gonna do things my way. Now, I'll get him to talk. If I can't make him talk, I'll give him to you.
Zindler: It'll be a pleasure.
Brent: Forty dollars a month buys a lot of patience, doesn't it, Sheriff?
Roscoe: Hey, pilgrim, wake up. This is where I leave you.
Brent: Aren't you just a little premature?
Roscoe: Well, maybe I am, but this is as far as they paid for your ride. Hop down.
Brent: Why, those no-good, cheap tinhorn gamblers
Roscoe: Seems like a smart-lookin' feller like you would know when a practical joke's bein' pulled on him.
Brent: You know, you'd have been better off if you'd taken up undertaking.
Bert: I did. Gave it up when a fella once sat up in his coffin.
Bert (kneeling next to his dead friend): Well, as I always say, one bullet's as good as another.
Bert: You think fast, don't you?
Brent: Well, I like to land on my feet with a coin stuck between my toes.
McGavin: Now, uh, Mavis, honey, what's wrong with me now that there ain't no more competition?
Mavis: Nothin', I guess. You're just the kind of doormat a woman would love to wipe her feet on.
Mavis: You got another offer?
Emily: You do business with him and you'll end up horizontal.
Brent: At this point I'm so tired I'm breathin' from memory.
Mavis: You better trust me, mister.
Brent: Right now, I wouldn't trust my grandmother.
Brent: Honey, I quit believin' in Mother Goose when I kicked the slats out of my cradle.
Pappyism: Patience is the best remedy for every trouble but money is better.
