      • Jim: My partner and I are trying to find out where the raiders are coming from.
        1st Elder: They come from the past, from the shadows of history.
        Jim: Well, if that's where they come from, that's where we'll find them.

      • Proprietor: You wish something, senor?
        Jim: I'd like some food.

        Jim: My stomach has insomnia.

      • Artie: (disguised) Hey, you're a stranger in San Pedro, are you not, senor? Then why do you not encourage me to play for you?
        Jim: Consider yourself encouraged.
        Artie: Hey! For that kind of money, senor, I'll even play for you in tune.

      • Officer Rojas: I have tried to warn you--I can do no more. It is quite likely, Señor West, that you're a very brave man. It is most unfortunate that in addition, you're also very stubborn.

      • Artie: Those are just some diversionary bombs I set off all over the place.
        Jim: Artie, some day they're going to dedicate a statue to you.
