Paladin: You know, Sheriff, there are some values that attach to wearing that badge. They are not pomposity, personal vanity, self-gratification. They are justice under the law, equal enforcement of the law, and some pride in what that badge really stands for.
Jim Redrock: I'll tell you what this badge really stands for. It stands for a house made of wood and a chance for my boy to go to school and sleep on a bed instead of a buffalo hide. It stands for a chance and a way of life for me and my wife that has some meaning. That's what it stands for!
Mossman: I don't know what's happened to me, but ever since I've been in this town, I... well, I've never been a party to things like that before.
Paladin: It has been accurately stated that a man stands naked although locked up in steel, whose conscience with injustice is corrupted.
