Fred C. Dobbs:
You know, if I was a native, I'd get me a can of shoe polish and I'd be in business. They'd never let a gringo. You can sit on a bench 'til you're three-quarters starved... you can beg from another gringo... you can even commit burglary. You try shinin' shoes in the street, peddlin' lemonade out of a bucket, and your hash is settled. You'll never get another job from an American.



Bob Curtin:
Yeah, and the natives would hound and pester you to death.



Fred C. Dobbs:

Bob Curtain:

Bob Curtin:
All right, I'll go first.



Fred C. Dobbs:
And wait for me on the trail to ambush me?

Howard:
Now here's where we're bound for, hereabouts. Don't show properly whether there's mountains, swamp, or desert. That shows the makers of the map themselves don't know for sure. Once on the ground, all we gotta do is open our eyes and look around. Yes, and blow our noses, too. Believe it or not, I knew a fellow once who could smell gold like a jackass can smell water.

Bob Curtin:
Remember what you said back in Tampico about having to carry that old man on our backs?



Fred C. Dobbs:
That was when I took him for an ordinary human being, not part goat.
