Episode Quotes
Maidie: (after shooting the horse) I'll go take a look at him.
Matthew: Will you shoot him too?
Maidie: If necessary.

D'Acosta: Mourning is a lonely business.
Maidie: It's not for sharing with strangers.
D'Acosta: Sharing is good. It's opening a window to let out the dark and let in the light.

Wooster: My Pa always said a man is divided into two parts and most of that is stomach.

Wooster: I'm scared of wounded cats.
Matthew: A real man asin't scared of nothin'.

Adams: (to D'Acosta) My friend, you tell me what that woman's runnin' from and I'll tell you why she's the way she is.

Adams: The bravest man is the man that's scared and still fights.

Maidie: We always think better when we're alone.

Maidie: Where will I go?
Adams: Wherever your conscience tells you, Mrs. Brandt. Good luck.
