Morg Hickman:
How long you had that badge?



Sheriff Ben Owens:
Since Sheriff Parker got killed.



Morg Hickman:
Nobody else wanted it, huh?



Sheriff Ben Owens:
Yeah... Bogardus.



Morg Hickman:
He wanted it for a shooting license, huh?



Sheriff Ben Owens:
That's how come he didn't get it. Town don't want prisoners brought in dead.



Morg Hickman:
Yeah, I know. They only want sheriffs brought in dead.

Bart Bogardus:
Do you know who I am?

Bogardus is the name. Bart Bogardus. Jamerson was kin of mine.

Well, every family's got one black sheep... some of 'em got two.

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.

Morg Hickman:
You got a bone to pick with the freight company, not with me. They put a hunk of money on Jameson's head. He robbed the freight office, killed the agent. Wanted him dead or alive, which is kind of a hint sounds like to me.



Dr. Jacob Joseph 'Doc' McCord:
[as Morg enters from the street] Well, here's a man walks through the nettle patch, picks all the flowers for himself.



Millie Parker:
[walking away from him] I have no use for bounty hunters.



Morg Hickman:
[ironically] Well, that makes it unanimous.



Dr. Jacob Joseph 'Doc' McCord:
Miss Parker's father was sheriff here for 20 years. If you find it a little chilly in here, you can wait outside.



Morg Hickman:
I don't mind the chill - I'm after money.
