    • (after Nora kills Nichols with McCain's rifle)
      Lucas: You lied to me. Why, Nora?
      Nora: Let me go!
      Lucas: Why!?
      Nora: He was gonna kill Chad Morgan over a gambling debt.
      Lucas: Morgan? That boy who's been gambling over at the saloon?
      Nora: That "boy" is going to marry me.
      Lucas: How are you gonna explain Nichols?
      Nora: Me? Why you killed him, Lucas, to protect my honor. It was a fair fight, he drew first. Or, if that's not the way you see it, I might be forced to tell him the truth.
      Lucas: The truth?
      Nora: Yes. You shot him in cold blood! You were jealous. I'm sure a lotta people in this town know that we were old friends. That we were, shall we say, thinking seriously of marriage.
