Harrigan: You stupid damn fools. Why did you shoot this employee and let the others get away?
Thornton: The next time you better plan your massacre more carefully or I'll start with you!
Harrigan: Why didn't you kill Pike when you had the chance?


Lyle: All your fancy plannin' and talkin' damn near got us shot to pieces over a few lousy bags of washers. Well, this was goin' to be me and Tector's last job before we quit and headed south. We spent all our time and money a-gettin' ready for this!
Pike: You spent all your time and money runnin' whores in Hondo while I spent my stake settin' it up. Hell, I should have been runnin' whores instead of stealin' Army horses.
Lyle: While you was doin' all that plannin', me and Tector was gettin' our bell rope pulled by two... two, mind you, Hondo whores! [starts laughing]
Dutch: [laughing] And Pike was dreamin' of washers... you were matching whores... in tandem!
Lyle: What's that?
Tector: That's one behind t'other.
Lyle: That's right! That's what we was doin'!

Lyle: Hey, Angel! Why don't you tell your folks to feed them dogs?
Angel: Any insult to my family while we are here and I will kill you!
Lyle: Hey, Angel; do you have a sister?
Angel: [Angrily] Si!
Lyle: I'd be pleased to make her acquaintance. And that of your mama too!
Tector: [Laughing] And the same goes for your grandma, too Sonny!

Pike: Any trouble, no guns for the General.
Herrera: Ha, ha, ha. Very smart. That's very smart for you, damn gringos. So nobody can rob the guns.
Pike: Nobody.
Herrera: I am not afraid. They are not afraid. You blow up the wagon, you die. Or we kill you pretty soon. But we are amigos.
Dutch: Show 'em boys.

Pike: I don't know why the hell I didn't let them kill you.
Angel: Listen, I'm not going to steal guns for that devil to rob and kill my people again.
Dutch: Noble, noble. Very noble.
Sykes: I didn't see no tears roll down your cheeks when you rode in from Starbuck.
Angel: Ah, they were not my people. I care about my people, my village. Mexico!
Sykes: Listen boy, you ride with us, your village don't count. If it does, you just don't go along.
Angel: Then I don't go along.
Dutch: Angel, one load of guns ain't gonna stop 'em raidin' villages. Well, you oughta be thinkin' about all the money you're gonna have.
Pike: Buy 'em a ranch. Move 'em a thousand miles. Buy 'em two, three ranches.
Dutch: One, a very small one.
Angel: Don't you see? This is their land. And no one is gonna drive them away.
Sykes: I'll drink to that sentiment. And to love. But most of all, I'll drink to gold.
Pike: Angel, you're a pain in the ass.
Angel: Would you give guns to someone to kill your father or your mother or your brother?
Pike: Ten thousand cuts an awful lot of family ties.
Angel: My people have no guns. But with guns, my people could fight. If I could take guns, I would come with you.
Dutch: Hey, um, how many cases of rifles did Zamorra say was in that shipment?
Pike: Sixteen.
Dutch: Well, give him one.
Pike: All right. One case and one case of ammo. But you give up your share of the gold.
Angel: I will.
Pike: We know you will.

Pike: Let the General take care of those boys [the bounty hunters].
Lyle: You're crazy. That General would just soon kill us as break wind.
Pike: He's so tickled with those guns, he'll be celebratin' for a week and happy to do us a favor. Thornton's not gonna follow us in there. While they're busy pickin' over Freddy, we'll find a back trail off this mountain and head for town.
Dutch: What about our gold?
Pike: We'll take one sack to pay our way. Bury the rest - together.

Pike: Now that I find hard to believe.
Don Jose: Not so hard. We all dream of being a child again, even the worst of us. Perhaps the worst most of all.
Pike: You know what we are then.

Pike: Sharin' up will be the same as always.
Lyle: Well, me and Tector don't think that he [points at Angel] oughtta get the same amount. He's just startin' out and this is mine and Tector's openin' for a new territory!
Tector: That's right, and I figure a share to that old goat [points at Sykes] for watchin' them horses is damn sure a share too much!
Lyle: So we decided. It ain't fair.
Pike: If you two boys don't like equal shares, why in the hell don't you just take all of it? Well, why don't you answer me, you damn yellow-livered trash!...I don't know a damn thing, except I either lead this Bunch or end it right now.

Pike: There was a man named Harrigan. Used to have a way of doin' things. I made him change his ways. A hell of a lot of people, Dutch, just can't stand to be wrong.
Dutch: Pride.
Pike: And they can't forget it... that pride... being wrong. Or learn by it
Dutch: How 'bout us, Pike? You reckon we learned - bein' wrong, today?
Pike: I sure hope to God we did.

Pike: This was gonna be my last. Ain't gettin' around any better. I'd like to make one good score and back off.
Dutch: Back off to what? Have you got anything lined up?
Pike: Pershing's got troops, spread out all along the border. Every one of those garrisons are gonna be gettin' a payroll.
Dutch: That kind of information is kind of hard to come by.
Pike: No one said it was going to be easy but it can be done.
Dutch: They'll be waitin' for us.
Pike: I wouldn't have it any other way.
Dutch: Pike, I wouldn't have it any other way either.

Pike: With the way the Generalissimo's cleaned out this part of the country, he ought to have a lot to spare.
Dutch: Eh, Generalissimo, hell. He's just another bandit grabbin' all he can for himself.
Pike: Like some others I could mention? [laughs]
Dutch: Not so's you'd know it, Mr. Bishop. We ain't nothin' like him. We don't HANG nobody. I hope someday these people here kick him and the rest of that s**** like him right into their graves.
Angel: We will. If it takes forever.

Pike: You boys want to move on or stay here and give him a... decent burial?
Tector: He was a good man, and I think we oughta bury him.
Pike: He's dead. And he's got a lot of good men back there to keep him company.
Lyle: Too damn many.
Dutch: I think the boys are right. I'd like to say a few words for the dear, dead departed. And maybe a few hymns'd be in order. Followed by a church supper. With a choir.
Lyle: You crazy bastards. Both of ya.

Ross: [Coming into Aqua Verde after the massacre] Whoeee! If Jess is waitin' for the buzzards to lead him to old Sykes, he's got a long wait! Looks like we got 'em all!
Coffer: T.C.! Look! It's the Gorchs, Engstrom, and look, here's Pike. You don't look like so much now, do you Mr. Pike? It's them, Mr. Thornton. Shall we load 'em up?
T.C.: Ain't we goin' to wait on Jess?
Coffer: No, no, no! These boys'll start goin' ripe on us before too long!

Sykes: I didn't expect to find you here.
Thornton: Why not? I sent 'em back; that's all I said I'd do.
Sykes: They didn't get very far.
Thornton: I figured.
Sykes: What are your plans?
Thornton: Drift around down here. Try to stay out of jail.
Sykes: Well, me and the boys here, we got some work to do. You wanna come along? It ain't like it used to be, but, uh, it'll do.

Sykes: Say, back there in Starbuck. How'd my boy do?
Pike: Your boy? Crazy Lee?
Sykes: Yeah, C.L., Clarence Lee, my daughter's boy. Not too bright, but a good boy.
Pike: Why didn't you tell me he was your grandson?
Sykes: Well, you had enough things on your mind; besides he had to pull his own weight just like the rest of us. I just wanted to make sure he didn't let you down: run when things got hot. Huh? Huh?
Pike: No, he did fine... just fine.
