Wyatt Earp
Ike Clanton
All right, Clanton... you called down the thunder, well now you've got it! You see that?

[pulls open his coat, revealing a badge]

It says United States Marshal![terrified, pleading] Wyatt, please, I...

[referring to Stilwell, laying dead]

Take a good look at him, Ike... 'cause that's how you're gonna end up!

[shoves Ike down roughly with his boot]

The Cowboys are finished, you understand? I see a red sash, I kill the man wearin' it!

[lets Ike up to run for his life]

So run, you cur... RUN! Tell all the other curs the law's comin'!

[shouts]

You tell 'em I'M coming... and hell's coming with me, you hear?...

[louder]

Hell's coming with me!
Wyatt Earp
Doc Holliday
What makes a man like Ringo, Doc? What makes him do the things he does?A man like Ringo has got a great big hole, right in the middle of him. He can never kill enough, or steal enough, or inflict enough pain to ever fill it.What does he need?Revenge.For what?Bein' born.
Wyatt Earp
[to Ike Clanton] You die first, get it? Your friends might get me in a rush, but not before I make your head into a canoe, you understand me?
Josephine Marcus
Wyatt Earp
I'm a woman, I like men. If that means I'm not "lady-like", then I guess I'm just not a lady! At least I'm honest.You're different. No arguin' that. But you're a lady alright. I'd take my oath on it.

[Ringo steps up to Doc]

And you must be Doc Holliday.That's the rumor.You retired too?Not me. I'm in my prime.Yeah, you look it.And you must be Ringo. Look, darling, Johnny Ringo. The deadliest pistoleer since Wild Bill, they say. What do you think, darling? Should I hate him?[128]:You don't even know him.Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.[to Ringo] He's drunk.In vino veritas. ["In wine is truth" meaning: "When I'm drinking, I speak my mind"]Age quod agis.
