[to a bounty hunter who signs his receipt with an "X"] Sheriff:
When are you gonna learn writin'? You might not look smarter, but you'll feel smarter.
Wes: Sheriff! Sheriff: Yessir. [indicates a wanted poster depicting hooded bandits] Wes: Who are they? Sheriff: Not much to know about them 'cept for their hoods. They've been robbing banks all across the state of Texas since the war. Wes: Well, they hit Twin Forks a couple days back. Jack: Yeah, Sam Sheppard's dead, Ben. Wes: They killed him and his whole posse. Sheriff: [grimacing] Damn! They're good. Wes: I figure if they ain't here yet, they're comin'. Sheriff: You boys got any good news for me? Billy: Well, hell, Sheriff - we're here! Hannah: You're not mad at me for killin' you pa. You're not even mad for robbing those banks or butchering that posse. You're mad because you don't care any more. I made you love me. Jack: So, Wes... do you think there's any chance in hell she's gonna let you take her in? Syl: Well, she coulda killed him... She didn't. Jack: If I go after her again, she's gonna have to kill me. Syl: Well then, why go after her? Wes: I gotta see this thing through. How we end it's up to her. You don't have to come along, Syl... Any of ya. Syl: No, I'm comin'. I have to. Jack: Me? Wes: Yeah. Jack: Well, I had to kill a fifteen-year-old girl. Even if I never understand why I had to do that, I still got to look her mother in the eye. Wes: Billy? Billy: They're outlaws... no different from Packer and his crowd. Hell, we went after them for a lot less reason. Wes: All right then. Hannah: I should have killed you when I had the chance. Wes: We all make mistakes. Wes: Jack? The Widow: He'll live. Wes: Syl? Syl: [clutching his bleeding chest wound] Never better. Hannah: [to Wes] You feel bad about Silver Creek? I'll tell you about Silver Creek, I was there, so was Ellie and the Widow. I had a son, did you know that? He was four years old, four years old and they gunned him down in the streets like a dog. And your militia, your precious gorillas all six of them they beat the shit out of us and raped us until we bled, and this [shows the scars on her back] Hannah: this is war, Captain, and it doesn't stop just because some general says so. The Widow: [in a bath house] Ah hell, this place is making me horny.
