Quotes

  • John J. Macreedy  

    You're not only wrong. You're wrong at the top of your voice.

  • Mr. Hastings, Telegrapher  

    There must be some mistake. I'm Hastings, the telegraph agent. Nobody told me this train was stopping.

  • John J. Macreedy  

    They didn't?

  • Mr. Hastings, Telegrapher  

    No, I just told you they didn't. And they ought to. What I want to know is why didn't they?

  • John J. Macreedy  

    Maybe they didn't think it was important.

  • Mr. Hastings, Telegrapher  

    Important? It's the first time the streamliner's stopped here in four years.

  • John J. Macreedy  

    I want to go to a place called Adobe Flat. Are there any cabs available?

  • Mr. Hastings, Telegrapher  

    Adobe Flat?

  • John J. Macreedy  

    Yeah.

  • Mr. Hastings, Telegrapher  

    No cabs.

  • Hector David  

    Real cool guy.

  • Reno Smith  

    Doesn't push easy, huh?

  • Hector David  

    Well, that's it. That's just it. He pushes *too* easy.

  • Reno Smith  

    My name's Smith. I own the Three Bar Ranch. I want to apologize for some of the people in town.

  • John J. Macreedy  

    Act like they're sitting on a keg.

  • Reno Smith  

    A keg? Of what?

  • John J. Macreedy  

    Heh-heh, oh, I don't know. Diamonds? Gunpowder?

  • Reno Smith  

    Oh, it's nothing like that. We're suspicious of strangers, is all. Hangover from the old days, the Old West.
