      • Morgan, Richard and Ralphie pull up to Olton Pharmaceuticals
        Morgan: (to black gate guard) Hey, brother, whitey been doin' you right on this gig?
        Gate Guard: Yeah, man, they got to. The token, you know.

      • Tour Guide: (voice-over) As the sun sinks over the monuments of Tranquil Valley, we are closing our gates, to reopen tomorrow morning at 9 A.M., under new management.

      • McCloud: (to Chief Clifford, amazed at Tranquil Valley's tour guide) Down in Taos, the only time they'll escort you through a cemetery is when you're in the box!

      • Minister: (presiding at a burial) So I admonish you, dear friends of J.W. "Earl" Harper, we all have known him as a jurist of great promise, who had he lived might have risen to a position on the highest court of the land. Think not of the lies and libelous accusations flung at him by the pseudo-intellectuals of the Northern press. Wherever he may be, there's a better day a-comin'.

      • Chief Clifford: Send in the sagebrush Sherlock Holmes, will you?

      • (McCloud is in captivity under an expressway on the waterfront)
        Morgan: You can be quite content here. One need only learn to expect that society will do its worst. If you expect it, you'll accept it. Contentment. Try, Tex. Be content.

      • Marvin Sloan: How many technicians do we have working on those antibiotics?
        Dr. Dudley: Oh, I've got embalming rooms 8 through 15 going full blast!

      • Marvin Sloan: I will tell you why your brother gets caught! He gets caught because he's a ziphead, and an idiot, and a shlub, that's why!

      • Morgan: "You do unbend your noble strength, to think so brainsickly of things."
        Richard: What's that supposed to mean?
        Morgan: That's Macbeth, Act Two, Scene Two.

      • Tour Guide: And the people were happy, for Tranquil Valley gave them eternal peace, starting at two hundred dollars, plus tax and limousine charges.

      • (McCloud knows why the beaver won't eat)
        McCloud: Ya see, nothin', nothin' will get as lonesome as a New Mexico beaver.
