[after Morg gives Kip the horse, Kip is very happy and rides down the road. Nona yells after him]



Nona Mayfield:
Wait, Kip! Wait, Kip, you haven't said thanks.


[to Morg]



Nona Mayfield:
Ho, ho, he didn't even thank you.



Morg Hickman:
Sure did. Didn't you see his face.



Nona Mayfield:
You're too generous.



Morg Hickman:
Don't fool yourself. Man lives alone - like me - gets kinda selfish. He gives you anything you can be sure he's gettin' his money's worth.

Morg Hickman:
A decent man doesn't want to kill, but if you're gonna shoot, you shoot to kill.



Sheriff Ben Owens:
How about hittin' them in the arm?



Morg Hickman:
That hokey-pokey'll get you killed fast. There're a lot of guys bragging about shooting a gun out of somebody's hand. They're lying. They shot to kill. A wounded man can still kill you.



Sheriff Ben Owens:
*You* did it.



Morg Hickman:
Huh?



Sheriff Ben Owens:
With Bogardus. You hit his gun.



Morg Hickman:
That wasn't my fight, that was yours. I could take a chance.



Sheriff Ben Owens:
What if you missed?



Morg Hickman:
Aw, he'd have killed you, or I'd have had to kill him.

Kip Mayfield:
Don't I look like a sheriff?



Morg Hickman:
You look more like a sheriff than the sheriff does.

Morg Hickman:
[to Ben] Learn what to stay out of. If you step into a fight, make sure you're the better man. Paste this in your hat: a gun's only a tool. You can master a gun if you got the knack. Harder to learn men.
