Colonel Ashley: Tony, show the Captain the game room and get him his drink.
Grey: Yes, but we have business, Colonel.
Colonel Ashley: Oh, I'm much too sober to discuss business now, Captain. We'll have our little deal over whiskey sours at breakfast.
Lucinda Jennings: Good night, Captain. You got a most appealing voice.
Grey: Well, ma'am, I was just thinking the same thing about you.
Colonel Ashley: The whole county was in timber. Lots of bears here. Bobcats. Then when we went in for cotton, we drew another kind of animal. Prettier maybe, but just as deadly.
Lucinda Jennings: I take that as a compliment, sir.
Lucinda Jennings: Lovely sight, isn't it? Quiet and peaceful.
Grey: So's dynamite. Right up to the moment it explodes.
Grey: I think you are a lady.
Lucinda Jennings: Even after the way I acted downstairs?
Grey: Now, ladies don't always behave like... well, like ladies. that's what makes them interesting.
Lucinda: Sounds like an exciting life.
Grey: Exciting? Well, it's feast or famine. You see, one day you come into port riding high on the water. You don't know where you're going to get enough money to buy the next load of wood. Next trip in you're buying drinks for everybody on the house.
Colonel Ashley: There's a man by that name hanging around the plantation somewhere. He's aimin' to kill me.
Tony Ashley: Sounds like a man after my own heart. I'd like to meet him.
Colonel Ashley: You may get the chance, sir. He probably wants to kill you, too.
Tony Ashley: Would it be prying to ask the reason why, or does he have the usual instinctive dislike for the Ashleys.
Colonel Ashley: Tie him up; I'll send for the marshal.
Tony Ashley: Leave him alone!
Colonel Ashley: He tried to kill us!
Tony Ashley: I said leave him alone.
Colonel Ashley: Are you giving me orders?
Tony Ashley: Yes, I'm giving you orders.
Colonel Ashley: Well, it's about time.
