Gillom Rogers:
[Books is giving Gillom gunfighting lessons] Mr. Books, my grouping of shots was tighter than yours. How is it you've killed so many men?



John Bernard Books:
First thing is, that target wasn't shooting back at you. Second, most men at that last second will flinch; I won't.

Carson City Marshal Walter Thibido:
Hey, Books; did you hear what happened at the Metropole last night? Faro dealer, Pulford, shot a man clean through the heart at eighty paces. Maybe you should go to the Metropole, let Pulford deal you a game of cards.

Carson City Marshal Walter Thibido:
Books, I want you out of town. These are law-abiding people here and I don't want any trouble. I can deputize as many men as I need to see that you leave.



John Bernard Books:
I'm not going anywhere, Marshal. I'm dying and I intend to die right here.



Carson City Marshal Walter Thibido:
Really? You're really dyin'?



John Bernard Books:
Ask Doc Hostetler.



Carson City Marshal Walter Thibido:
Hot damn! You know, Books, that's the best news I've had all day. While I was walking over here I was thinking, what if Books decides to kill me? Who will take over as marshal? Will the town council pay my pension to my wife? Damn, that's good news.

John Bernard Books:
[after Gillom tells him that Pulford and Cobb will be at the Metropole the next day] What about the other one, Mike Sweeney?



Gillom Rogers:
Now you watch out for him, Mr. Books. He's mean, and he hates you.



John Bernard Books:
Well, we'll see if we can't clear that up tomorrow.
