Morg Hickman:
To have confidence, you gotta keep a cool head. Don't take any chances you don't have to; but, wait... and end the fight with one shot.



Sheriff Ben Owens:
Wait?



Morg Hickman:
It's that time you wait - that split second - that means the difference between missin' a man and killin' him.



Sheriff Ben Owens:
I don't wanna kill nobody.



Morg Hickman:
Take your guns off.



Sheriff Ben Owens:
The law says a man ain't to be shot without his chance to surrender.



Morg Hickman:
Or make his fight. As long as you're wearin' that badge, you gotta walk up, tell him to throw 'em up and then watch which way his hands move. If they go up, you got yourself a prisoner. They go down, he's dead... or you are.

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.

Kip Mayfield:

Sheriff Ben Owens:
I wouldn't expect no bounty hunter to appreciate this badge.

I wore one a lot longer than you ever will.

Sheriff Ben Owens:
You notice everything, don't you?



Morg Hickman:
I notice you're wearing your guns too low.



Sheriff Ben Owens:
That's where Sheriff Parker wore his.



Morg Hickman:
Parker's dead.
