Frank Newberry:
Company for you; Doc Vallon, best doc in Skagway.



Doc Vallon:
Oh yes, because I am the only doctor in Skagway, so I am the best one. Say, will you ask the lawyer, Monsieur Gannon, to consider my case as quickly as possible.



Frank Newberry:
I wouldn't crowd him, Doc, he's pretty sore - figures you could have saved Diggy's hand.



Doc Vallon:
But the bones were crushed! There was nothing but to do but amputate!



Frank Newberry:
Maybe, but you sure ruined a good piano player.

Skagway Sheriff Gannon:
What's going on here? You there!



Jeff Webster:
They got a little out of hand. I'm sorry!



Skagway Sheriff Gannon:
You're sorry? You just busted up a function of the law, that's what you did. The people of Skagway don't like lawbreakers. They go to a lot trouble and expense to prove it! New gallows, new rope, thirteen steps all counted out right and proper, with each step costin' not less than twelve dollars per each and you drive a herd of cattle through the population. You busted up everything, that's what you did. And you're sorry!
