Tector Crites (Jackson gang:
[voice-over] There is nothing worse than a harlot turned respectable. A reformed anything is bad enough, but a reformed harlot is the direct wrath of the Devil. Seems that those who have spent time giving pleasure for profit are all the more zealous when it comes to dealing out misery.

Judge Roy Bean:
Do you have anything to say before we find you guilty?



Sam Dodd:
I'm not guilty of nothing. There's no crime that I've done wrong.



Judge Roy Bean:
Do you deny the killing?



Sam Dodd:
I do not deny it. But there's no place in that book where it says nothing about killing a Chinese. And no one I know ever heard a law on greasers, niggers, or injuns.



Judge Roy Bean:
All men stand equal before the law. And I will hang a man for killing anyone, including Chinks, greasers, or niggers! I'm very advanced in my views and outspoken.



Sam Dodd:
There's no place in that book that...



Judge Roy Bean:
Trust in my judgment of the book. Besides, you're gonna hang no matter what it says in there, 'cause I am the law, and the law is the handmaiden of justice. Get a rope.

Rev. Mr. LaSalle:
What has happened here?



Judge Roy Bean:
These men tried to hang me. They have been killed for it.



Rev. Mr. LaSalle:
How many of 'em are there?



Judge Roy Bean:
A lot of 'em.



Rev. Mr. LaSalle:
Who did the killing?



Judge Roy Bean:
I did. They were bad men, and the whores weren't ladies.



Rev. Mr. LaSalle:
Vengeance is mine sayeth, the Lord!



Judge Roy Bean:
It was. I'm waiting for the buzzards. They don't deserve burying.



Rev. Mr. LaSalle:
Maybe they don't, but they ought to be. They are a stench and an abomination! I got a shovel if you don't.

Judge Roy Bean:
[Bean apologizes to the marshals' wives] I understand you have taken exception to my calling you whores. I'm sorry. I apologize. I ask you to note that I did not call you callous-ass strumpets, fornicatresses, or low-born gutter sluts. But I did say "whores." No escaping that. And for that slip of the tongue, I apologize.

I will read over the dead now. My Bible, please. Mister, uh...



Judge Roy Bean:
Bean.



Rev. Mr. LaSalle:
Bean?



Judge Roy Bean:
Roy Bean. Judge Roy Bean. I am the law in this area.



Rev. Mr. LaSalle:
What has qualified you as such?



Judge Roy Bean:
I know the law. And I have spent my entire life in its flagrant disregard. But I had never killed a man before. Oh, I had shot at some... in self-defense or blind fright, but I never hit anyone. So God must have directed my bullets. Why, he even sent an angel to deliver this weapon
