Episode Quotes
Rupe Bosworth: Now, take the little matter of Jasper here. Most people think an owl's a funny pet. But I like him. He's my friend. He teaches me a lot of things.
Paladin: Such as?
Rupe Bosworth: Well, he knows enough to keep his mouth shut. Not chattering all the time like a parrot. He sleeps when he wants, wakes up when he wants, makes his own schedule. So do I.

Paladin: Where can I find them?
Rupe Bosworth: Why, they're holed up in a cabin, up on the North Fork road. Hey, before you go--you any good with that gun you carry? (Paladin turns and shoots the clock on the railing) Yeah. You go have a talk with 'em. Say, you might go out by way of the west quarter. Take a look at the crop.
Paladin: Mean, see if it's ready for harvest?
Rupe Bosworth: Ain't gonna be no harvest. You ever see 200 acres of sweet peas in bloom?
Paladin: No.
Rupe Bosworth: They're worth lookin' at. Smell good, too.

Paladin: Your name Bosworth?
John Bosworth: Maybe. What do you want?
Paladin: I just want to see what kind of scum it'd be that would send a mutilated cat to a young girl as a wedding present.
Ed Bosworth: Who you calling names?
John Bosworth: Shut up, Ed. It ain't easy send a gift to a girl who's got everything.
