Jesse Buford: That's a bargain all right, but a bargain ain't a bargain unless it's something you need. Sam Rhine, Hotel Owner: I'm not in the thinking business. Sparrow the Stagedriver: I wouldn't play poker with Henry Drummond if his back was to a mirror! Even if I had the money! Sam Rhine, Hotel Owner: How is he? Toby, Barfly: The Doc wants the shutter that used to carry drunks out. Henry Drummond: My daughter, Celie, was getting married. Jesse Buford: Celie? Henry Drummond: That's right! When Tropp come for me, she was in the middle of getting married. And they're holding up the "love, honor and obey" part until I get back. Dennis Wilcox: You mean you walked out in the middle of the wedding? Henry Drummond: I did! I ain't been late for the (poker) game in sixteen years and I ain't about to start now... wedding or no wedding. Dennis Wilcox: Now look, mister, the first rule of the game of poker, whether you're playing eastern or western rules, or the kind they play at the North Pole, is put up or shut up! Mary Meredith: Gentlemen are all such gallant gentlemen. Henry Drummond: We're gallant on Sunday. This is Friday and we're playing poker. [upon being offered a poker hand as collateral] C.P. Ballinger, Banker: Forty-six years ago, I started lending money in Larry Bingham's back room. My first customer was a drover named Penny. He wanted two dollars on a Brindle cow at six percent interest. He said she gave six quarts of milk a day. You know what I made him do? I made him move that cow into my back yard for a whole week. And I watched him milk her every day. Sure enough, she gave an average of six and a half quarts a day, so I gave him the money at six and half percent interest. Not only that, I kept the 60 pounds of manure she left behind. When you show me collateral, madam, you better make sure it's good collateral. For forty-six years, I've been lending money on good, old-fashioned principles. I stand here now to tell you one and all that I've never been offered a better piece of collateral that I hold in my hand now! Benson Tropp: Any man who gets himself married is automatically stupid.
