Hey Girl: What happened, Mr. Paladin?
Paladin: Well, Hey Girl, I seem to have chosen the wrong moment to quote epigrams.
Hey Girl: Maybe you picked the wrong epigram. What did you quote?
Paladin: "A good liar should have a good memory".
Hey Girl: Le Rochefoucald?
Bud McPhatter: "They have sown the wind, and they will reap the whirlwind." "The Lord moves in mysterious ways." I waited for a sign and now I have one. You'll never deliver me to Soledad.
Paladin: We'll get there.
Paladin: And now you're on your way to San Francisco to seek your fortune.
Jody Strickland: Well, I don't know about my fortune, Mr. Paladin, but, oh, I, I'd sure like to wear pretty clothes and enjoy living for a change.
Paladin: Jody, those are laudable ambitions, but they are a little bit general. You have any more specific idea of how you're going to get along in San Francisco?
Jody Strickland: No. But I'll get by.
Paladin: I'm sure you will.
Paladin: Mr. Gaunt? Mr. Gaunt, it's there, in all of us. The will to live. Will to die. Will to kill. If that's the sickness that's troubling you--you're not alone. Good night, sir.
Mr. Gaunt: Fear is a strange thing, Mr. Paladin. Can drive some men to their own hanging. And others into hanging on to what little life they have left.
Paladin: With the blaze of dawn comes reason. And the fears of the night are gone. And we will remember them not. And in retrospect, will remember only that we were strangers in a strange land, and other strangers gave us food.
