Stars of the show Justified

Justified (2010–) is an American TV show, airing on FX, about U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, a modern day 19th century-style lawman, who enforces his brand of justice to put a target on his back with criminals and puts him at odds with his bosses in the Marshal service. As a result, he gets reassigned to the U.S. District covering the town where he grew up. It is based on Elmore Leonard's novels Pronto and Riding the Rap and his short story "Fire in the Hole".

Season 1[edit]

Fire in the Hole [1.01][edit]

Tommy Bucks: I was telling my friends this morning how yesterday you come to me and, "You don't get out of town in 24 hours, I'm gonna shoot you on sight!" Come on, what is that? They thought it was a joke, they started laughing.
Raylan Givens: You tell them about the man you killed? The way you did it? 'Cause I found nothing funny in that.
Tommy Bucks: Maybe I should've killed you, huh? Maybe I made a mistake.
Raylan Givens: Well, we all have regrets.

Dan Grant: Let me put it to you this way: the weather forecast is for a shitload of shit raining down on this office from Washington. I'm gonna reassign you.

Raylan Givens: [to Dewey Crowe] Hey, if I was you, I'd give up this Nazi bullshit. Go back to poaching gators. It's safer.

Raylan Givens: You know, Boyd, I think you just use the Bible to do whatever the hell you like.
Boyd Crowder: Well, what do you think I like, Raylan?
Raylan Givens: You like to get money and blow shit up.

Boyd Crowder: Ava, get us a shot of Jim— [Ava loads her shotgun]
Ava Crowder: You wanna know what Bowman said when he looked up and he saw me with his deer rifle?
Boyd Crowder: God damn, woman, you only shoot people when they're eatin' supper?

Raylan Givens: I guess I never thought of myself as an angry man.
Winona Hawkins: Well, you do a good job of hiding it, and I suppose most folks don't see it, but honestly, you're the angriest man I have ever known.

Riverbrook [1.02][edit]

Boyd Crowder: The real question is, why didn't you kill me? Did you miss my heart on purpose?
Raylan Givens: No...I was aiming to kill. That's the way I was taught. Sometimes you don't hit the bullseye.
Boyd Crowder: No, I suppose not.

Police officer: Going solo again?
Raylan Givens: Another deputy in the car.
Police officer: Learned your lesson?
Raylan Givens: Until I forget it.

Art Mullen: I got a call this morning from AUSA David Vasquez. Wants to talk to you about you shooting Boyd Crowder.
Raylan Givens: What's there to talk about? He pulled first. There was a witness.
Art Mullen: But you see, ten days ago you shot a man in Miami. Put it like this: you were in the first grade; bit a kid every week? They'd start to think of you as a biter.

Raylan Givens: If you're going to talk, I'll put you in the trunk and drive myself.
Dewey Crowe: I can't drive handcuffed to the damned steering wheel!
Raylan Givens: You'll get the hang of it.

Rachel Brooks: Gotta ask. Why the hat?
Raylan Givens: Honestly? I tried it on one time, and it fit.

Fixer [1.03][edit]

Arnold Pinter: I hate it here. Kentucky. I hate every one of these toothless, banjo strumming, red neck pricks.

Art Mullen: I love how these guys are so calm when you're coughing up blood.

Art Mullen: Raylan, I got a courtesy call from the Harlan County Sheriff's Department — your daddy was arrested.
Raylan Givens: Did he kill anybody?

Long in the Tooth [1.04][edit]

Raylan Givens: You ever consider I happen to be good at the job?
Rachel Brooks: And you being a tall, good-looking white man with a shitload of swagger, that has nothing to do with it? You get away with just about anything.
Raylan Givens: What do I get away with?
Rachel Brooks: Look in the mirror. How do you think it'd go over if I came into work one day wearing a cowboy hat? You think I'd get away with that?
Raylan Givens: Want to try it on?

Raylan Givens: I can only imagine how hard it has been for you to get where you are in the Marshal service
Rachel Brooks: Because I'm black or because I'm a woman?
Raylan Givens: Because you're an idiot.

Frank: [discussing Pulp Fiction] I'm saying, why does he still have his gun out in the first place? When's the last time you rode around in a car holding your gun?
Joe: 'Cause it's a movie! That don't happen, then there's no movie. No messy car, no cleaner. I mean, what do they do? They drive home, jerk off, take a nap?

Raylan Givens: Looks like we have a sniper on the Mexican side.
Roland Pike: Well, that's not going to help tourism.

Raylan Givens: Are you armed?
Roland Pike: Well, I just had my dick in my hand.

The Lord of War and Thunder [1.05][edit]

Art Mullen: You've been in here for three days, and you've got no sign.
Rachel Brooks: Not no sign. His ex-wife has been packing in a lot of beer.
Art Mullen: Well, get a search warrant.
Rachel Brooks: Can't get a warrant based on beer consumption.
Art Mullen: How do you know?
Raylan Givens: We tried.

Raylan Givens: [about Arlo] Why can't you bail him out?
Helen Givens: Those are the first words out of your mouth?
Raylan Givens: I'm sorry, I'll start again. I see you're still smoking.
Helen Givens: You still piss in your bed?
Raylan Givens: No, you see, I gave up my bad habits.

Arlo Givens: I heard about you shooting Boyd.
Raylan Givens: Hmm.
Arlo Givens: All I need is a bunch of Crowders wanting revenge on a Givens.
Raylan Givens: Well, I think I'm higher up on their list.

Arlo Givens: Where were you, woman?
Helen Givens: Down in the parking lot, giving blowjobs for cash.
Arlo Givens: Were you paying or were they?

Johnny Crowder: You shot my cousin.
Raylan Givens: No, no. God shot Boyd. Ask him. He'll tell you I saved his soul.

The Collection [1.06][edit]

Ava Crowder: You're tarnished with the dark stain of divorce.
Raylan Givens: My marriage ended a little bit more amicably than yours.
Ava Crowder: Funny, why did your marriage end?
Raylan Givens: It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Art Mullen: Are you cold standing out here?
Raylan Givens: [without his shirt on] Not really. Why?
Art Mullen: 'Cause I can't keep from staring at your nipples!
Raylan Givens: I'll be out in ten.
Art Mullen: Thank you!

Raylan Givens: I figure people have a right to their hobbies and I have a right to find those people creepy.

Karl Hanselman: Next time you're in Cincinnati, come by the gallery, I'll show you my collection. I think you'll be quite surprised.
Raylan Givens: Honestly, I'd rather stick my dick in a blender.
Art Mullen: Well, that would solve a few problems.

Blind Spot [1.07][edit]

Art Mullen: Just what part of being under investigation confuses you, Raylan?
Raylan Givens: So many things confuse me, Art.
Art Mullen: Do you think we're going to banter here? Cause we're not.

Art Mullen: [to Raylan] I tell you to do one simple thing — refrain from screwing the witness in your own shooting — and you can't even do that!

Hunter Mosley: You know what they say about back woods cabins in Harlan, they're like assholes, sawed off shotguns and pick-up trucks.
Ava Crowder: Everybody's got one.

Red: What do they want?
Hunter Mosley: Well, they want rainbows and unicorns. God damn it, Red! Catch up! What do you think they want? They want Raylan Givens.

Raylan Givens: You honestly see a way out of this?
Hunter Mosley: Well, you mean like one of those police chases on TV? Helicopter following some dipshit through the streets? You know, when that idiot finally crashes, you ever notice how many get out and run? If you're like me, you're yelling at the TV, "What the hell you running for, asshole? We gonna get you!" And we always do, right? Except we don't, really. You know that. Not always. They just don't show the ones that get away on TV.

Blowback [1.08][edit]

Bo Crowder: You all right, daughter-in-law? You look like you just walked on your own grave. What, are you surprised to see me? I figured that Raylan Deputy Marshal Givens would have told you I was getting out. Especially since he's the one that got my sentence cut by 87 days and a wake-up.
Ava Crowder: What the hell are you talking about?
Bo Crowder: By taking down Sheriff Hunter. All the cases that got made by that lying son of a bitch are now liable to be reopened. So, the US Attorney decided that anybody with a sentence less than six months wasn't worth retrying. Gave us all early release. God bless America.

Bo Crowder: Howdy, Marshal, I sure am glad you could join us.
Raylan Givens: Oh, no, no, no. I'm not joining you. You were just leaving.

Raylan Givens: Are you gonna walk out of here, or is this gonna have to go a different way?
Bo Crowder: The last man that put his hands on me like that, I beat him until his eyes bled. I guess it's a lucky thing for both of us that I ain't a convict any more, ain't it?

Wynn Duffy: With one phone call, I was able to discover that the deposition you were scheduled to work this afternoon had been cancelled, letting me know that you'd be home early, and likely be home alone. Imagine what a genuine predator would have been able to do with that information.
Winona Hawkins: Or I could just call the police.
Wynn Duffy: The police are just a janitorial service used to clean up your blood after you've been murdered.

Raylan Givens: [to Wallace] You seem pretty stable. Although, you did spend all morning with a shiv up your ass.

Hatless [1.09][edit]

Wynn Duffy: Listen, I don't know how you're associated with Mr. Hawkins, or why, but I'm gonna give you this opportunity to extricate yourself from his predicament before you get involved in something that, quite frankly, you don't want to be involved in.
Toby Griffin: And I'm gonna give you a minute to extricate yourself up out my face before I have to paint your office with your shit.

Gary Hawkins: You talk to Arnett?
Wynn Duffy: I did.
Gary Hawkins: And?
[Billy Mac knocks down Gary]
Wynn Duffy: I would describe his attitude towards your suggestions as unreceptive.

Raylan Givens: I shot people I like more for less.

Bartender: Wouldn't it be easier just to buy a new hat?
Raylan Givens: Probably, but I ain't looking for easy.

Emmett Arnett: You're gonna get your portion.
Wynn Duffy: Of what? The land? What am I, a farmer? Show me the cash, Emmett, or I swear to God I'm gonna get a machete and a blowtorch, and I'm gonna make your body as small as I possibly can.

The Hammer [1.10][edit]

Ava Crowder: Didn't the district attorney order you to stay away from Boyd?
Raylan Crowder: It was more of a suggestion.

Boyd Crowder: Truth always sounds like lies to a sinner.

Boyd Crowder: What it became... well, as they say, it didn't happen in a day.
Johnny Crowder: So you're building Rome? Well, I don't think this property is zoned for that.

Boyd Crowder: I asked him to shut down his poison factory and merely made an observation about its combustibility.

Mike Reardon: [to Raylan] You are every inch the Goddamn gunslinger I've heard.

Veterans [1.11][edit]

Boyd Crowder: You gonna introduce me to your friends?
Raylan Givens: Oh, my mistake, I'm sorry. Yes, of course, Art Mullen, chief deputy of this office, my boss. I thought you guys had met that night I shot you, but of course you were unconscious by the time he showed up.

Boyd Crowder: Raylan, we're getting precipitously close to the moment I ask to have my lawyer present.

Bo Crowder: That day I came to pick you up at big Sandy and I asked you to work some hours to help me rebuild my business and you said you wanted to walk another path, well, I reacted poorly. That's why I came too see you today, son, to say I'm sorry, to beg your forgiveness and your indulgence.
[Bo hands Boyd an envelope of money]
Boyd Crowder: What's this?
Bo Crowder: The smoke from your blast sent a signal across all of Harlan County. I got people lining up with cash in their hands, begging me for protection.
Boyd Crowder: Well, I can't accept this.
Bo Crowder: Why not?
Boyd Crowder: Cause I know where it comes from. The bible tells us that "a gift blinds the wise and perverts the words of the righteous."
Bo Crowder: Well, then let's just consider it an offering, my tithes to your church of the last this, that, or the other.
Boyd Crowder: You're not taking me seriously, Daddy, and I don't find that amusing.
Bo Crowder: You know, it's funny. I was just about to say the same goddamn thing to you.

Bo Crowder: Where's my money?
Arlo Givens: There is no money. People stopped paying.
Bo Crowder: You invited me over here to tell me this?
Arlo Givens: No, Bo, I invited you over to tell you you have to do something about your son Boyd. He has gone clear off the deep end.
Bo Crowder: Well, shit, at least he hasn't joined the other team, become a goddamn Marshal for Christ's sake.
Arlo Givens: At least Raylan doesn't run around, preaching Jesus and blowing up meth labs.
Bo Crowder: I got control over my boy. Can you say the same about yours? He comes to town, it's to ruin the likes of you and me.
Arlo Givens: Only reason my son comes to Harlan is because of your son!

Boyd Crowder: Well, how'd he get you to talk, then?
Dewey Crowe: He deputized me.
Boyd Crowder: He did what?
Dewey Crowe: He said he could deputize me, and then I had to talk.
Boyd Crowder: Oh, that Raylan Givens. He sure is a clever one.

Fathers and Sons [1.12][edit]

Bo Crowder: You know, I may not own a private plane or a fancy car, and when you look at me, you probably just see some dumb redneck who likes to eat roadkill for breakfast and have sex with his cousins. I don't eat roadkill, I don't screw my relatives, and I didn't just get off of no short bus. So for you to bring me all the way down here to threaten me, as if I didn't already fully understand the stakes of our business agreement? Hoss, that's just downright insulting.

Boyd Crowder: Well, as many of you good people may remember, I was a hateful man, and I was a sinful man. Seeking my way through the darkness, looking for salvation in worldly things! And evil things. Like Saul on the road to Damascus, I was long gone on a sinful journey, when the light of the Lord shone upon me on my deathbed in a prison hospital. And, brothers and sisters, I'm here to tell you today that bullet missed my heart, but it struck my soul. It struck it. For I was blinded. I was blinded. I could no longer see ungodly truth. For if any man be born again in Christ is a new creature, well, I am a new. a new creature! I am a new creature!
Preacher: Thank you, Boyd.
Boyd Crowder: Not quite finished yet, Reverend.
Preacher: By all means, continue.
Boyd Crowder: Now - Now, Jesus entered a temple in Jerusalem. He found moneylenders buying and selling where they should have been a-praying. He called their church a den of thieves. And he turned over their tables. He cast out the robbers! He cast them out! He cast them out! Hallelujah! He cast them out! And like Jesus, like Jesus, like Jesus, we must never be afraid to strike out against those who practice evil! We must take the high road of righteousness, even if it means walking, walking and leaving our own flesh and blood behind. Because there is no greater piety, brothers and sisters, - than the love of God. Amen to that! He is my one true father. There is no other. There is no other, Preacher. There's no other.

Drug Chemist: Listen Lynyrd Skynyrd, next time we're opening a dick sucking business, I'll ask for your advice.

Winona Hawkins: How do you take your coffee?
Ava Crowder: With a little bourbon.
Winona Hawkins: Ooh! All right.

Art Mullen: [to Raylan] That's my bottle. I'm not going to let you drink it all just because your daddy didn't hug you much when you were little.

Bulletville [1.13][edit]

Boyd Crowder: For years I lusted after you, and I was far from subtle. Well, that was wrong. And not only because you were my brother's wife, but because it was unseemly, unwanted and it made you uncomfortable.
Ava Crowder: If by uncomfortable you mean it made my skin crawl, then yes.

Arlo Givens: You've known me 50 years.
Bo Crowder: Should that incline me to trust you more or less?

Bo Crowder: Who am I kiddin'? I can't hurt my own son. [pause] Johnny, hurt my son.

Art Mullen: [about Boyd] Maybe he's become some vigilante.
Raylan: Hmmm, maybe he's Batman.

Boyd Crowder: Dear Heavenly Father, I'm not gonna pretend to understand. You told me what you wanted done, and that's what we did. How could you let it end like this? All these men trusted me to lead them on the path of righteousness for your name's sake. All these men came to you because they believed in me. And now they're dead. I'm gonna need a sign. I'm gonna need to know that their sacrifice meant something to you. [Boyd pauses, then sighs] Maybe I've just been talking to myself this whole time.

Boyd Crowder: Where you going?
Raylan Givens: I'm going after the young lady with the automatic weapon.
Boyd Crowder: I'll get her.
Raylan Givens: What are you gonna do after you get her?
Boyd Crowder: I ain't quite figured that out yet. Are you gonna shoot to stop me?
Raylan Givens: Maybe.
Boyd Crowder: I'm pretty sure you're empty.
Raylan Givens: You gonna bet your life on that?
Boyd Crowder: No Raylan, I'm gonna bet my life on you being the only friend I have left in this world.

Season 2[edit]

The Moonshine War [2.01][edit]

Raylan Givens: Alright look, I've tried to be reasonable. You give me your word in ten seconds or I shoot you in the head.

Raylan Givens: So, you want to transfer me?
Art Mullen: Honestly, Raylan, I don't know who would take you.

Jimmy Earl Dean: You're very funny. That's good stuff.
Loretta MacCready: Is this gonna be your new line? How we got the same sense of humor? What's in your mind? How do you think this is gonna go? You thinking, "maybe we'll fight a little, then it'll turn to wrestling and tickling and laughing, then she'll say, 'ooh, don't touch me there,' and then she won't stop me"? Is that how it runs in your head? You don't even know what to say now, do you? Even me talking about wrestling and tickling and "ooh, don't touch me there," it's like a spell's been cast, and you won't break it. Well, maybe you're just dreaming and you don't wanna wake up. [Loretta slaps Dean hard across the face] Well, wake up!

Mags Bennett: [after poisoning Walt] Oh, this is the bad part, but it doesn't last long. Mixture's all natural, from up in the hills. All kinds of knowledge up in the hills. Something my grandmama taught me. She learned it from her grandmama.
Walt MacCready: Loretta?
Mags Bennett: I'll raise her myself. Don't you think that'll be better for her? Then the way it's been around here with you and your sadness. All the troubles of your hard life, it's all gone now. You get to know the mystery, Walt. You get to see your Sally Ann again.

Raylan Givens: Now look, normally I would have just shot you myself the second you pulled, but I am doing my level best to avoid the paper work and the self-recrimination that comes with it, though Lord knows that you are the kind that makes it worth it more. Come on, Jimmy, can't we just try to end this without you turning yourself into the Human Torch?
...
Raylan Givens: Woah woah, okay. I'm just gonna ask you one question. Do you know how a firearm works?
Jimmy Earl Dean: What?
Raylan Givens: The key word in firearm is "fire." When the pin hits the cap, makes the charge explode, meaning there's a spark, which should be of some concern to a man soaked in gasoline.
Jimmy Earl Dean: That's bullshit. That spark's too far away from the gasoline.
Raylan Givens: You didn't finish school, did you, Mr. Dean?

The Life Inside [2.02][edit]

Boyd Crowder: My outlaw ways are behind me.
Raylan Givens: Just you saying that scares the shit out of me.

Arlo Givens: I hope you get cancer!
Helen Givens: Already had it!
Arlo Givens: I hope you get it again!

Winona Hawkins: Sometimes I look at you and I never wanna see you again.
Raylan Givens: Other times?
Winona Hawkins: There are no other times, just that...Raylan...other times I wanna run away with you to Costa Rica.

Raylan Givens: [to Glenn Cosgrove] Glenn, we got it. You you knocked up an inmate, you hired someone to murder her and sell your child. Now shut the hell up, or Tim's gonna hit you in the face.

Raylan Givens: I saw a man threaten to shoot a pregnant woman through the belly, just before a bullet went through his brain so... I guess you could say, it wasn't good.
Winona Hawkins: I can handle that, Raylan. I can't handle silence.

The I of the Storm [2.03][edit]

Boyd Crowder: I was wondering if back when we were digging coal together that you had an inkling of the man that I might someday become.
Raylan Givens: You mean just 40 and still single?

Art Mullen: Hell of a shot. Did you consider what might have happened if you'd missed?
Tim Gutterson: I can't carry a tune. I don't know how to shoot a basketball and my handwriting is, uh, barely legible. But I don't miss.

Dewey Crowe: You know, Boyd... for a guy who supposedly changed, you sound an awful lot like you always did.

For Blood or Money [2.04][edit]

Doyle Bennett: [to Dickie and Coover] You have any idea the federal shitstorm we'd bring down if we killed a marshal? We're talking black hawk-helicopter time. Jesus. I don't want either of you two doing shit or even contemplating doing shit until you run it by someone who can think.

Art Mullen: [about Rachel] She's the best marshal I've got.
Raylan Givens: You realize I'm sitting right here?
Art Mullen: I do.

Art Mullen: You're getting old.
Raylan Givens: Not as old as you.
Art Mullen: And you're a dick.

Rachel Brooks: When I was Nick's age, before my father's cancer, I thought we were the Cosbys. My parents had good jobs, there was a feast on the table after church on Sundays. Shawnee and I would ride our Huffys around the neighborhood. We had good hair, and made straight A's. Except, as my mother reminds me, that wasn't reality. The jobs weren't all that good, and my father was never a happy man even before he got sick. And Shawnee was smoking pot at 9 and running away to smoke heroin at 15.
Raylan Givens: I never bore any illusions that my family was the Cosbys.
Art Mullen: Your family wasn't funny.
Tim Gutterson: At least you got to shoot your father. Mine had the nerve to die before I got back from Basic with skills and a loaded weapon.
Raylan Givens: You didn't miss much. I thought it was gonna be way more fun than it was.

Doyle Bennett: I had nothing to do with it.
Mags Bennett: Other than shootin' a couple of assholes to keep 'em from talking.
Doyle Bennett: Yeah, well... that.

Cottonmouth [2.05][edit]

Tom Bergen: Well, Art, I've been in Harlan 18 years. People still look at me like I'm some kind of Yankee come down there to burn their crops.

Ava Crowder: Why did you agree to rob that mine in the first place?
Boyd Crowder: Because it's what I do. It's who I am, Ava. As hard as I've been trying to pretend otherwise. Everybody else seems to know that but me.

Tom Bergen: Art, I've been in Harlan 18 years. People still look at me like I'm some kinda Yankee come down to burn their crops. But this guy...
Raylan: I know my people.
Art Mullen: You're like the hillbilly whisperer. We oughta put you on Oprah.

Coover Bennett: Ma ain't never left me in charge... Dickie neither. Here you sit?
Loretta McCready: Well it ain't as glamorous as it looks.

Mags Bennett: We need to talk.
Dickie Bennett: Can I get you something, mama?
Mags Bennett: Nothing's gonna take the taste away from my boys going behind my back.
Coover Bennett: Mama, w-we never went behind-
Mags Bennett: Cashing McCready's draw checks? How long did you think it'd take before that'd come back on us?
Coover Bennett: Mama, that's that federal. He's aiming for trouble with us, always has been.
Mags Bennett: 'Cause of your actions! Starting with hiring that pederast to do a job I give you.
Coover Bennett: I'm sorry, mama.
Mags Bennett: Coover, I know you're sorry. That's why it's gonna hurt so much to have to do this.
[Doyle moves Coover to place his hand on a tree stump. Mags takes out a hammer]
Dickie Bennett: Hey, now! Hey, hey, now! Hey! Hey!
Doyle Bennett: Put your hand on the stump! Put your hand on the stump! Mags: Take what's coming.
Coover Bennett: Mama.
Mags Bennett: I'm saving your gun hand, now.
Coover Bennett: Mama, don't hurt me.
Mags Bennett: Cross me again, and I will leave you nothing.
Coover Bennett: Mama!
Dickie Bennett: You ain't got to do this.
Mags Bennett: You shut your mouth! 'Cause you're crippled to the point of worthlessness it ain't you down on that table. As it is, I have to hurt Coover. And I like Coover.

Blaze of Glory [2.06][edit]

ATF Agent: Did she screw all your relatives? Or just you two?
Boyd Crowder: Now sir, I know you have an investigation to conduct but if you disrespect Ava one more time, I'm gonna come across this table.
Art Mullen: I think a threat against a federal officer would be a little more specific. Something more along the lines of, "If you disrespect Miss Crowder again I'll beat the ever loving shit out of ya."

Winona Hawkins: [to Raylan] The one who kicked me in the face... if you get the chance, shoot him in the nuts.

Frank Reasoner: [to Carter Hayes] I got you figured. You did most of your growing up in those juvie-detention gladiator schools. I guess Bobby didn't tell you I was the bench-press champion at Lewisburg. The next time you make me raise my voice, I'm gonna take this oxygen tank, and I'm gonna beat your ass to death with it.

Carter Hayes: Now, it appears to be running just a couple minutes late, but when it gets here, we're gonna take our money and be on our way. [opens his jacket to reveal a vest of dynamite] Otherwise I'm gonna have to huff and puff.
Raylan: Okay. Okay. [to Bobby Green] Clearly, you're the smart one. I'm hoping you know what to do now.
[Bobby lies flat on his stomach and places his hands on his head]
Raylan Givens [to Carter] And you're the one who kicks innocent women in the face.
Carter Hayes: You mean that girl from this morning? She didn't seem so innocent. Does she taste as good as she looks?
Raylan Givens You know where I'm from, asshole?
Carter Hayes: No.
Raylan Givens Harlan County.
Carter Hayes: So?
Raylan Givens [punches Carter] Down there we know the difference between dynamite and road flares.

Art Mullen: If you run, I'm gonna put a bullet in that tank. You remember the end of Jaws?

Save My Love [2.07][edit]

Raylan Givens: I'm surprised to see you here.
Boyd Crowder: Without shackles or an attorney present? It's a little strange for me too.

Gary Hawkins: I'm glad you agreed to see me, given our history.
Wynn Duffy: Our history, indeed. I took a bullet, lost seven pints of blood, and eighteen inches of intestine. I had the surgeons keep it for me as a memento of that day preserved in Lucite. Would you like to see it?
Gary Hawkins: Okay.
Wynn Duffy: Gary, I didn't have eighteen inches of intestine preserved in Lucite.

Boyd Crowder: Raylan. Raylan, I would never presume to tell you how to do your job and I understand that I am very new in this security game. However, I have spent a considerable amount of time hiding explosives. Now if you would like, I'd be more than happy to walk around here with you, show you where would I hide mine, in case there might be a place that you might miss.

Raylan Givens: The truth is, I don't know if you can trust Boyd to have your back but well, he has tried to kill me, and I have shot him, and imprisoned him and I wouldn't be surprised if our paths again cross in such a manner. He has had my back on two occasions. Once was the last day I was in the mine, and the other not so long ago.
Carol Johnson: My, sounds like a love story.

Raylan Givens: You think he was telling the truth?
Art Mullen: Well he's a bank robber Raylan, why would he lie to me?

The Spoil [2.08][edit]

Kid: No spikes, no seeds, no helmet, no hitting.
Raylan: Nothing about no beating the shit out of a teenager though. I guess that'd be okay then.
Kid: Hey I'll call the cops.
Art Mullen: Kid, we are the cops.

Boyd Crowder: Well, now, more than once we've found ourselves on the same side of a fight.
Raylan Givens: Okay. Well, I'm on assignment by the federal government. You're a hired gun thug for a crooked company. Now, the only thing that we're on the same side of is, like, this car.

Carol Johnson: There have been some threats.
Mags Bennett: Oh, well, that's just awful.
Carol Johnson: Part of the job, I suppose.
Mags Bennett: Yeah, it's not easy being a strong woman. Take it from me. But you just keep doing what you're doing. Don't let them see you sweat.

Mags Bennett: Apparently, Black Pike is here to help us realize God's great plan. And all they're asking us to let them do, is cut the top off our mountain. Well, my people pioneered this valley when George Washington was president of the United States. And as long as we've been here, the story's always been the same: the big money men come in, take the timber and the coal and the strength of our people. And what do they leave behind? Poundments full of poison slurry and valleys full of toxic trash! Yeah! You know what happens when 500 million gallons of slurry breaks loose? The gates of hell open!
Carol Johnson: Those poundments are built strong to keep the slurry back.
Mags Bennett: The gates of hell open, and all that waste rolls down through the hollers and poisons the water and the land and everything it touches! Mining company has a has a word for those leavings doesn't it? "The spoil. The spoil"! And that is what our lives will be if Black Pike has their way with our mountain.
Carol Johnson: With all due respect, Mrs. Bennett, Black Pike will replace the mountaintops and leave money a lot of money in the pockets of the working people of Bennett and Harlan counties.
Mags Bennett: Is that a fact?
Carol Johnson: Yes, ma'am, that is a fact.
Mags Bennett: Well, that's something to consider. 'Cause it ain't an easy life here. No, ma'am. To an outsider, it's probably hard to understand why we're all not just lining up and saying, "Where do we sign?" But we got our own kind of food, our own music. Our own liquor! We got our own way of courting, and raising children! And our own way of living and dying. And to protect all that, we have got to say "No, thank you" to Miss Carol Johnson here and Black Pike Mining.

Carol Johnson: My heart's still pounding. Wanna feel?
Raylan Givens: You've had enough fun for today.

Brothers Keeper [2.09][edit]

Ava Crowder: You sure you know what you're doing?
Boyd Crowder: I'm making it up as I go, but I sure am happy you elected to come along.

Mags Bennett: [to Carol Johnson] Now, sit your bony ass down and listen to my counteroffer while there's still pieces of you big enough to find!

Mags Bennett: You pick the devil you run with.

Coover Bennett: My daddy ain't never did shit for me. Never give me nothing. Hell, her neither.
Dickie Bennett: [yelling after Raylan] Don't you hurt my brother, Raylan!

Debts and Accounts [2.10][edit]

Art Mullen: [to Raylan] I thought at one point that maybe someday you and I'd be able to look back at all this and laugh, but shit, I don't think you're gonna live that long. You just go on and do what you do, and I'll just cleaning up after ya, and sooner or later this problem's gonna solve itself.

Mags Bennett: [to Hobart Curtis] Wherever your boys grow up, do you think they'd be better off doing it with or without their daddy? You figure out that next time before you open your mouth to me.

Raylan Givens: I've been wondering if I'm just a criminal at heart, ya know, truly my father's son.

Boyd Crowder: My name is Boyd Crowder. You can come after me if you want but it will be the last thing you ever do, I promise you that.

Winona Hawkins: Who are they?
Raylan Givens: Lord knows. Any number of people who are trying to kill me.

Full Commitment [2.11][edit]

Raylan Givens: Well I gotta talk to some people... alone. So... Either you let me go, or I'm gonna have to give you the slip.
Tim Gutterson: I love this shit. This shit gets me hard.
Raylan Givens: Well, we've both been warned then.

Mags Bennett: You did kill my baby.
Raylan Givens: Yeah.
Mags Bennett: But I was the one that let him become a nitwit. Now, I'm not taking the blame, mind you. Coover had plenty of time to straighten himself out. And you did save Loretta. Saved me from living out my days with her blood on me. I'm not sure it makes us exactly even, but I made a deal with your Aunt Helen to keep the lid on, and I intend to honor it.

Doyle Bennett: If the police chief wants to kill a guy, he ain't got to send anyone. He just waits for the guy to show up on his turf, and he rolls up on him with a bunch of his police officers. You know, that way, he can make it look like the guy died resisting arrest. Or if that don't fly, well, hell, he could just, uh, disappear the body down an old, boarded-up mine shaft.

Gary Hawkins: Duffy is crazy. I think you need to call for some backup.
Raylan Givens: We ain't calling anybody.
Gary Hawkins: Why not?
Raylan Givens: 'Cause all they'll do is try to arrest him.

Wynn Duffy: So, are we finished?
Raylan Givens: As long as you understand that the next time we have this conversation, it won't be a conversation.

Reckoning [2.12][edit]

Mags Bennett: You want to be in charge? Is that what this is about?
Dickie Bennett: I want what's coming to me.

Mags Bennett: Dickie, I swear. Your actions jeopardize my plans in any way, I will let you swing for it.
Dickie Bennett: By which I believe you mean, that's a damn good plan you got there, son!

Raylan Givens: Give me one reason why I shouldn't come up there and kick the living shit out of you.
Boyd Crowder: I'll give you 15 reasons in the mag, and one in the chamber.

Boyd Crowder: We can draw him out.
Raylan Givens: How would we do that? Take you to the middle of town, tie you to a tree, and wait?

Dickie Bennett: I said I said, you don't you have to do this, Raylan!
Raylan Givens: Of course I do. This is who we are, Dickie. This is who we've always been. Givens, Bennetts going on what? Nearly a hundred years now. And this is how it ends. It can just end.

Bloody Harlan [2.13][edit]

Boyd Crowder: Are you asking me or are you telling me?
Raylan Givens: Well, if it makes you feel better, you can tell people I asked.

Raylan Givens: Doyle, I need you and your boys to put your guns down.
Doyle Bennett: And why would we do that?
Raylan Givens: Maybe you don't wanna see your brother's brains fly through the air.

Art Mullen: Assume the position... NOW. Do you dumb-ass peckerwoods understand English? On the ground, hillbillies! NOW!

Raylan Givens: You pull that trigger, your life is gonna change. And not for the better. Now, I want you to ask yourself what your daddy would want you to do.
Loretta McCready: I want him here to tell me.

Raylan Givens: Mags? What did you do?
Mags Bennett: Same thing I did to Loretta's daddy. It's too late. It was already in the glass, not in the jar. [starts to convulse] This is the hard part. Put an end to my troubles. Get to see my boys again. Get to know the mystery.
[Mags dies]

Season 3[edit]

The Gun Fighter [3.01][edit]

Boyd Crowder: Raylan, if a book could only be judged by its cover, you'd be a best seller.

Raylan Givens: Boyd, I've been to Mexico, I don't think you'd like it.
Boyd Crowder: How so?
Raylan Givens: There's a lot of Mexicans.

Wynn Duffy: As a matter of fact, as I recall, last time we met, you told me the next conversation we had "wasn't gonna be a conversation".
Raylan Givens: This is a different conversation.

Wynn Duffy: Raylan, I am so sorry. I would love to be of more help, but I gotta get back to watching women's tennis.

Fletcher Nix: I like your hat. There much call for cowboys these days?
Raylan Givens: You would be surprised.

Cut Ties [3.02][edit]

Boyd Crowder: Well, now, Raylan, you're talking to a man who's sleeping with his dead brother's widow and murderess, so if you're looking for someone to cast stones at you on this matter, I ink you've picked the wrong sinner.
Raylan Givens: When did ya get married?
Karen Goodall: Two months before I got divorced.

Harlan Roulette [3.03][edit]

Raylan Givens: These boots aren't made for running.
Art Mullan: And yet chasing fugitives is a marshal's primary function.

Glen Fogle: Pull it again.
JT: That's not how Russian Roulette works.
Glen Fogle: You're not playing Russian Roulette dumb shit, you're playing Harlan Roulette.

Glen Fogle: [after JT survives Fogle's game of 'Harlan Roulette'] Maybe it's just your lucky day, son. [Fogle keeps pulling the trigger until he shoots JT] Or maybe not.

Glen Fogle: [about Raylan] You like old friends or something?
Wade Messer: Well, I-I set him up for Dickie Bennett, strung him up in a tree. I don't know, is that a friend?

Wade Messer: We're old friends, aren't we?
Raylan Givens: Friends? You strung me up, and left me for dead.
Wade Messer: I thought that was water under the bridge.

The Devil You Know [3.04][edit]

Boyd: [as Raylan arrives] ...the time is coming, but we don't have to put a pin in it for now since I am sensing a disturbance in the force.

Raylan: You know what they say, getting old ain't for pussies.

Raylan: [while interrogating Lance] Let's see if I got this right. You managed to get bushwacked by an imbecile and an undernourished half-cripple?

Boyd Crowder: Devil, knowing me the way that you do, whatever led you in your imagination to believe that you could pull this off? [Johnny aims his gun at Devil]

Boyd Crowder: [to a dying Devil] I know how much it hurts. I've been right where you are, laid out on the ground and holding my chest, looking up at the ceiling, trying to find my breath. Devil, I was lucky I made it back. Son, you ain't gonna make it back.

Thick as Mud [3.05][edit]

Ava Crowder: You regret killing him?
Boyd Crowder: I regret that he made it necessary.

Boyd Crowder: You are between a rock and a much, much harder rock.

Raylan: Have you been pissing?
Dewey Crowe: He took my kidneys, Raylan, not my dick!
Raylan Givens: Your kidneys are for pissing. So why don't you try taking a leak, and if you can do it, then we know you still got your two kidneys.
Dewey Crowe: Come on, come on. [starts urinating] Holy shit. You mean I have four kidneys?

Raylan Givens: Honey, if I started arresting people for committing adultery, I'd never make it home for supper.

Robert Quarles: Boyd, have you heard the saying, "the most successful war seldom pays for its losses"?
Boyd Crowder: Thomas Jefferson. Prison doesn't offer much, but it does give a man ample time to read.

When The Guns Come Out [3.06][edit]

Arlo Givens: Sneak up on a man like that; good way to get yourself shot.
Raylan: By you in your boxer shorts there? I think I got the drop on you this time, Arlo.

Ava Crowder: Now, if you are the man in charge, then maybe you can help me.
Delroy Baker: Please tell me you've come here looking for a job, darling, 'cause I forgot to play the lottery this week, and you, right here, are the winning ticket.

Raylan Givens: [to Boyd] So this is the new you, bartending and pushing pills? Moved on from swastikas and rocket launchers.

Raylan: [to Boyd] You want to run your hillbilly heroin fiefdom up here, that’s between you and the great state of Kentucky. I got no interest in shitkicker-on-shitkicker crime. But you will not drag me into this. The next time you set up an operation in this county or any other it better not have my God damn family name on the deed or so help me God, I will lose this star and the dance we do subsequent to that will not end with you finding Jesus in a hospital bed.

Winona Hawkins: If you wanted to change your life for me Raylan, you would have done so by now.

The Man Behind the Curtain [3.07][edit]

Robert Quarles: I'm just gonna put a smile on my face, and eat a nice plate of steaming shit...unsalted.

Sammy Tonin: What you got to remember is Dad ain't big on second chances, and you only got one because of what he invested in you in the first place.
Robert Quarles: Tell the old man that I do not need a second chance.
Sammy Tonin: That's good. Because you remember what happened last time there were hiccups? You went a little crazy, you remember that? Have you told Mr. Duffy here about your your rent boy? About all it took to squash that?
Robert Quarles: I don't think Mr. Duffy is interested in the story.

Tim: Shit blows up, that's my friend's ass.
Raylan: Shit's not gonna blow up.
Tim: And according to my friend, the surveillance team knows you're looking for him.
Raylan: How do they know that?
Tim: So I tell you where Sammy is, and you go all "Raylan" on him and drag him out of some restaurant by his nutsack.
Raylan: I'm not gonna grab his nutsack or any other part of him. I just want a word.

Raylan: I got mad ninja skills, buddy.
Tim: Yeah, you know karate?
Raylan: And two other Japanese words.

Robert Quarles: I just got lucky. Amazing wife. Great kids. No, my problem all stems from my work.
Gary Hawkins: Ohh, yeah?
Robert Quarles: I swear, I'd be running the whole organization if it wasn't for my boss's idiot son.

Watching the Detectives [3.08][edit]

Raylan: [about dropping a bullet on Winn] I told him the next one might be coming a little faster.
Garrity: Deputy, that might just be the coolest thing I've ever laid ears on.

Jeremy Barkley: Who are you?
Garrity: Detective Garrity, Lexington PD.
Jeremy Barkley: And I'm FBI. Wait your turn.

David Vasquez: Arlo, a lifetime criminal. Is that a fair description?
Raylan Givens: I'd add "petty" to be more accurate.

Raylan: [After being questioned in a murder case] That is bullshit, and you know it.
Art: Is it?
Raylan: Is that a real question?
Art: Well, it had a question mark.

Raylan Givens: He's got the ice-cold, remorseless bottle-blond shit-bag killer doing scut work.
Wynn Duffy: Deputy, are you accusing me of being a fake blond? Because if you need me to prove it to you, I might be inclined to break you over that step ladder, ride you down like a teaser pony, and paint this room an entirely different color.
Raylan Givens: Now, that is the Wynn Duffy I remember.
Wynn Duffy: You concerned about me, Raylan?
Raylan: Little bit. The S.S. Quarles is going under. You best swim like hell to get clear or the whirlpool will take you down with it.
Wynn Duffy: I believe they disproved that on MythBusters.

Loose Ends [3.09][edit]

Raylan: [about Boyd] Still think you can change him, huh?
Ava Crowder: I'm not trying to change him. I'm trying to help him.

Delroy Baker: [to Ellen May] See, darling, you got to understand, business is always gonna triumph- [Ava shoots Delroy in the chest with her shotgun]

Boyd Crowder: Well, Mr. Napier, I'd like to think that if I was behind an attempt on your life, at the very least I would've messed up your hair.

Boyd Crowder: My question is, does Mr. Napier know the name of the company that fired Shelby from his security job? Well, I'll save you the trouble. The name of that company was Black Pike Coal. Now, do you want us all to believe that Shelby here's a dishonest man because Black Pike tells us so? Do you think that Shelby's the only man in this room been done wrong by a coal-mining company?
Tillman Napier: Mr. Moderator, how many questions you gonna let this convict ask?
Boyd Crowder: Mr. Napier, everybody here knows that the only men the company doesn't do wrong are company men. And you stand up there with your slick haircut. You look down on Shelby because this man works for a living. You talk down to me because I've been in trouble with the law. Well, you know when that trouble began? Why don't you ask your good friend Harvey Jones? He was there. He was on the line when we struck out at Eastover Brookside, Duke power scabs, and gun thugs coming after us with bicycle chains and bats! Trying to run us over in their cars! And I know that you weren't there, Mr. Napier...but there sure were a lot of men there who looked like you. Men standing on the company side, laughing at all us hillbillies who were just trying to stand up for what we believed in. Now, I'm not saying you're a bad man, Mr. Napier. That, I don't know. But what I do know is that you've been feeding too long at the public trough. Now, I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm gonna say no to the company man. I'm gonna say no to the lawmen who disrespect the rights of the people whose taxes pay for their salaries! And I'm gonna say no, I'm gonna say no, I'm gonna say no to Sheriff Tillman Napier, who laughs in our faces while he makes money off our backs!

Limehouse: You rather talk pig shit?
Raylan: Close... Robert Quarles.

Guy Walks Into a Bar [3.10][edit]

Boyd Crowder: You're a lucky man, Mr. Quarles. You get to come all the way down here, a place you got no right being. You get to eat our food. You get to drink our whisky. You get to look at our women as you try to take it all for yourself. Why, you know what you are? You're a conquistador. Only we are not your savages. And now you get to leave with your life. Well, I'm hard-pressed to remember the last outsider in your line of work can say that. I hope you've enjoyed your stay and you never forget who packed your bags.

Wynn Duffy: Mr. Quarles, maybe it is time you leave Kentucky.
Robert Quarles: I got nowhere else to go.

Robert Quarles: My father was a heroin addict. He wasn't necessarily an evil man, but he couldn't kick his addiction, couldn't hold a job, either. But to feed his addiction, he used the resources at his disposal.
Donovan: I don't care about your shit!
Robert Quarles: Luckily for my father, he had a very pretty little boy. And plenty of men were willing to pay for my company. What is your name?
Donovan: Donovan.
Robert Quarles: That's what it was like for me, Donovan. For many years. And then one day, a man named Theo realized what was happening. You see, Theo believed deeply in family. And one afternoon, an associate of Theo's picked me up from school, and we took a ride in his Cadillac to a warehouse. Theo ushered me in, where inside, on his knees, was my father. I was 14 years old. And I remember how it felt to suddenly be free.

Robert Quarles: He slipped the hillbilly rug right out from under my feet.
Raylan: I'm just gonna file that under "Who gives a shit?"

Robert Quarles: I'm gonna kill you, Raylan. Maybe not tonight, maybe not tomorrow, but some day you'll be walking down the street and I'm gonna put a bullet right in the back of your skull and you're gonna drop.

Measures [3.11][edit]

Robert Quarles: You know, you disappoint me, Wynn. Word around the Detroit campfire is that you were a wild man. Comes to a little nut-cutting, suddenly you want to bitch out. Don't be like the rest of them. You can't have the "Duffy" without the "Wynn".

Longbaugh: This is a katana. My granddad pulled this off a dead jap officer at Shuri castle, Okinawa!
Robert Quarles: The greatest generation at work.
Longbaugh: He was a lying old sack of shit. Probably just bought it.

Raylan Givens: Art, I've got a daddy.
Art Mullan: Yeah, I've met your daddy.
Raylan Givens: Fair enough, continue.

Sarno: You know, if I didn't know any better, I'd think you sent us there expecting him to take care of us.
Wynn Duffy: Or you'd take care of him, have to go on the run either way.
[Sarno's associate moves to raise his gun; Sarno stops him]
Sarno: Whoa. A man doesn't talk like that unless he's holding the nuts.
[Duffy lifts his gun from under the table]
Sarno: Ah.
Wynn Duffy: It's nothing personal. I just figured the more soldiers Quarles has down here, the more tenuous my position becomes.
Sarno: Did you figure if you didn't put us together with him, we'd just go away?
Wynn Duffy: I figured it would buy me some time to cut a deal help you in exchange for a guarantee that I don't get left out in the cold.
Sarno: Hmm. Well, how about you help us in exchange.
Wynn Duffy: In exchange for your lives? That sounds a little odd coming from the guy not holding the gun.
Sarno: Did you help Quarles because of the guns he had or because of who was behind him? Theo Tonin he carries this ear around in his pocket.
Wynn Duffy: I'm sorry. It sounded like you said-
Sarno: -yeah, yeah. It's a human ear. And, uh, whenever he wants to get some guy's attention, he just takes out the ear and he starts talking into it.
Wynn Duffy: Hmm. What does he say?
Sarno: I don't think it really matters.

Sarno: You know, there was a day when I would have said nobody could stealth me.
Art Mullan: Yeah? What happened? Lose your edge or just realize you weren't that good to begin with?
Sarno: Maybe a little of both.

Coalition [3.12][edit]

Raylan Givens: You really think this is gonna go down?
Tom Bergen: I hope so, because if I'm missing my boy's tee ball game for nothing I'm gonna be pissed.

Boyd Crowder: Are you sure you're alright with this?
Ava Crowder: $3.2 million. I might find a way to get right.

Wynn Duffy: The point is, Mr. Crowder, when he asks me, and he will, where Robert Quarles is, does Theo Tonin sound like the kind of man to whom you'd like to say, "I'm sorry, but he escaped from a disease-ridden whore factory up in inbred holler"?!
Boyd Crowder: I'm gonna let that one go.

Ellstin Limehouse: Now it's funny how that money bring together all them wayward personalities.

Wynn Duffy: Are you smoking Oxycontin in my motor coach?
Robert Quarles: I most certainly am.
Wynn Duffy: Do that in your own vehicle.
Robert Quarles: My car's not that comfortable.
Wynn Duffy: Robert. Limehouse told you where to wait. Go wait there.
Robert Quarles: Is daddy getting mad?
Wynn Duffy: For once in your life, do what has been asked of you.

Slaughterhouse [3.13][edit]

Raylan Givens: You remember the pawn-shop owner you sent after me, Glen Fogle?
Wynn Duffy: God rest his soul.
Raylan Givens: Had a little game he liked to play with his flunkies. Are you familiar?
Wynn Duffy: Uh, remind me?
Raylan Givens: I ask you a question. You answer truthfully, or I pull the trigger. You understand?
Wynn Duffy: It seems simple enough.
Raylan Givens: You have any questions?
Wynn Duffy: What are you doing?
Raylan Givens: Is that your question?
Wynn Duffy: You think you can make me talk?
Raylan Givens: That's your choice.
Wynn Duffy: Or you're gonna shoot me?
Raylan Givens: There's a five out of six chance I won't.
Wynn Duffy: Bullshit.
Raylan Givens: Where's Quarles?
Wynn Duffy: Kiss my ass.
[Raylan aims at Duffy and pulls the trigger. The gun doesn't fire.
Wynn Duffy: Jesus Christ! There are cops outside!
Raylan Givens: That's right. They're outside.
Wynn Duffy: You're a cop!
Raylan Givens: Deputy U.S. Marshal.
Wynn Duffy: Raylan, you just can't come in here and shoot me because you, you, you feel like it!
Raylan Givens: Why not? Isn't that the way you guys do it? Isn't that why Tom Bergen's dead while his wife and children are grieving? So, you know what? Now we're gonna play by your rules.
Wynn Duffy: Raylan-
Raylan Givens: Where's Quarles?
Wynn Duffy: I don't know!
[Raylan pulls the trigger again]
Wynn Duffy: Jesus! Stop it! What is wrong with you?!
Raylan Givens: You want me to stop, tell me the truth.
Wynn Duffy: How can I tell you what I don't know?
Raylan Givens: Start with telling me what you do know.
Wynn Duffy: Okay. Just give me a minute.
Raylan Givens: No.
[Raylan raises his gun again]
Wynn Duffy: Hey! Hey! Hey! Okay! What do I know?! What do I know?! I know that, uh I know that Limehouse set this all up! I know that Quarles likes young boys. Who do you think called in the Brady Hughes tip? Me! I know that he wants you dead, and he probably wants me dead, too. And, yes, I tried to blow him up in his car! And then I drove away! That's what I know!
Raylan Givens: That's it?
Wynn Duffy: That is all I know!
Raylan Givens: You don't know where he is?
Wynn Duffy: I don't know where he is!
Raylan Givens: Okay. I believe you.
[Raylan leaves]
Wynn Duffy: Jesus Christ!

Art Mullen: [to Boyd] You're not as dumb as you look. I like the use of the word cahoots, though.

Raylan Givens: [about Limehouse] A horsefly sneezes in these hills, he knows about it beforehand, but I'm to believe the car bomb and the dead trooper down the road comes as news.

Boyd Crowder: Well I guess we best both sleep with one eye open.
Ellstin Limehouse: I always do.

Raylan Givens: [about Quarles, who lost his arm] You know what they're saying at the office? I dis-armed him.
Winona Hawkins: That's pretty good.

Season 4[edit]

Hole in the Wall [4.01][edit]

Raylan: [to Jody, a criminal] You ever heard of the expression: "You run into an asshole in the morning, you run into an asshole in the morning. You run into assholes all day; you're the asshole."

Jody Adair: You think this is the first time I had a gun pointed at me?
Raylan Givens: No...could be your last though.

Boyd Crowder: No one ever said runnin' a criminal enterprise was gonna be this hard.
Ava Crowder: They left that part out on career day.

Jody Adair: Shoot him.
Raylan Givens: Jesus girl, you just showed me your tits 45 minutes ago.

Billy St. Cyr: Why are you here, newcomers? You all come to watch the hillbilly with the snakes? Or did you come to be saved?!

Where's Waldo? [4.02][edit]

Art Mullen: You came here about the job, right? You need to hear about this. I got a young kid here, decorated sniper in Iraq War, Army Ranger, I don't know how many kills he had. Always lookin' to kill somebody else. Probably got PTSD. Probably an alcoholic. Not a matter if that powder keg is gonna blow but when. I got a lady marshall here. Brought in two of the top fifteen fugitives to this office, but she's always tryin' to prove herself. I thought she was gonna be the one that would take this office over when I got ready to retire, but now she's left her husband so it's gonna be fun to monitor her emotional state over the next year, see if she can keep it together. Then I got a local boy, born in Harlan county, been investigated so many times internal affairs has got him on speed dial. Father's in prison for murderin' two people, including a state trooper, and his daddy killed somebody else last night in prison and I get to be the one to tell him about it!

Raylan: I'm sorry what are we talkin' about?
Art: Where were you yesterday?
Raylan: Why? Did somethin' happen?
Art: No.
Raylan: So, what's the problem?
Art: You're keeping addict hours, you come in late, you leave early, you're haggard. It's like the baby's already been born.
Raylan: I don't know what you're talkin' about.
Art: Tim?
Tim: I'd rather not take sides.
Raylan: Thank you.
Art: Well would you rather do morning prisoner transports for the next six months?
Tim: You do seem a little tired.
Art: No shit! The question is why?
Tim: Smart money in the office pool's on exotic dancin'.

Boyd Crowder: Well you can trust me!
Wynn Duffy: But I don't even trust the way you just now said I could trust you.

Boyd Crowder: Well, I was hoping not to have to go down this road, but if you want Danny to leave this room alive, I'd ask you to reconsider my offer.
[Duffy abruptly pulls out his gun and shoots Danny in the head]
Wynn Duffy: Any dealer silly enough to poach your territory is not welcome in my crew.

Art Mullen: That mystery bag thing is giving me a bit of a Marshal stiffy.

Truth and Consequences [4.03][edit]

Guy: You don't worry about how long you're gonna live. You worry about how slow you're gonna die.

Art Mullen: [to Raylan] Admit it. You're getting a little bit of a marshal stiffy yourself.

Art Mullen: If my stiffy lasts much longer I'm going to have to consult my physician. What's your opinion?
Raylan Givens: On your stiffy? I don't have one.

Randall Kusik: [to Raylan] So how about at 6:00 this P.M, I put a little limp in that Gary Cooper walk, write my name all over that pretty face of yours?

Cassie St. Cyr: I'm not afraid of you.
Boyd Crowder: Well in that case ma'am, I think we've misjudged each other.

The Bird Has Flown [4.04][edit]

Lindsey: How's that song go? Look for the rainbow in every storm?
Raylan: I'll have to download that.

Rachel Brooks: Are you going to tell me how much money it was or not?
Raylan Givens: I did...it's a goodly sum.

Guy: Any fool that didn't see that grifter Barbie coming a mile off deserves getting his ass fleeced.

Randall Kusik: Oh, them chickens. You got to understand, man. I've been holding that dream in my head so long, I might kind of lost sight of the thing.
Raylan Givens: Randall, I know you're shackled, and it ain't half fair, but you say one more word about chickens, I'm gonna shoot you again.

Kin [4.05][edit]

Nicky Augustine: Jerry, really? Is that really the price? Or are you just thinking about taking off with the money?
Jeremy Barkley: Jesus, Nicky. What the hell kind of a question is that?
Nicky Augustine: Uh, fair.
Jeremy Barkley: I mean, I've always been protecting you. I mean, we're friends.
Nicky Augustine: We are. But I heard the FBI doesn't even have the case anymore. The Marshals are running it.
Jeremy Barkley: [suddenly nervous] Where you hear that?
Nicky Augustine: Do you really think that you're the only guy Theo's got left in the FBI?
[Nicky shoots Barkley in the head]

Josiah Cairn: It was the young people drove me out. No values no more.

Boyd Crowder: Whole world's a tree Raylan. I'm just a squirrel trying to get a nut.

Foot Chase [4.06][edit]

Boyd Crowder: Son, you are turning a corner that you can't walk back around.
Shelby Parlow: Well, that's like warning a man it's gonna rain when he's already wet.

Colton Rhodes: Hey, listen, I'm-I'm not a bad person.

Cop: Waste of time if you ask me.
Raylan: What is, doing your job?

Money Trap [4.07][edit]

Lee Paxton: I think you're missing the point. Your daddy got the point. Crowders do what we say.

Outlaw [4.08][edit]

Wynn Duffy: Theo's got a guy on his way down who has apparently killed more people than malaria.

Ellen May: Do you think that, um, that I could ever be the kind of woman who belongs in these clothes? And walk into church and not have people say, "Now, ain't that sweet? The whore's come to get saved"?
Shelby Parlow: I think If you pretend to be something long enough, it's not pretending.

Raylan: [at Arlo's bedside] You're not gonna say anything, hmm? Just lie there and wait me out. Doc says you've been in and out and there's a chance you'd sleep all the time I was here, but we both know you're too mean to go that easy, so come on. Give me something. I ain't asking for an apology. Hell, that'd take too long, and I don't want any fatherly advice. Figure if you had any worth giving, you wouldn't be circling the drain in a prison infirmary. Just give me something. Who's Drew Thompson? Not for me, for your grandkids. They can grow up with a chief deputy for a daddy, hear stories about their granddaddy who wasn't just a son of a bitch.
[Arlo remains silent]
Raylan Givens: All right, Arlo. This is your last last chance.
Arlo Givens: Don't go.
[Raylan stops]
Arlo Givens: Closer.
[Raylan leans in]
Arlo Givens: Kiss my ass.

Boyd Crowder: [being led from the back room of the bar, in handcuffs] Raylan Givens! If you were coming down here anyway why have Shelby drag me in again?
Raylan Givens: I didn't have him drag you in the first time. [indicates the officer leading Boyd] What's going on?
Officer: What's it look like?
Raylan Givens: Did Shelby send you?
Officer: He's the boss, isn't he?
Raylan Givens: I just saw him not fifteen minutes ago, he didn't mention anything.
Officer: Maybe he figured it wasn't any of your concern.
Raylan Givens: Well except I told him I was coming here. I'm sorry, we haven't met; I'm deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens.
Officer: Well, all due respect—
Raylan Givens: 'K, just, hold up. [to Ava] Is that an engagement ring?
Ava Crowder: Mm-hmm.
Boyd Crowder: 'S a big rock, ain't it? Now as acrimonious as our relationship has been lately, Raylan, Ava and I discussed it and you still gon' be on the guest list.
Raylan Givens: [to Ava] You know the definition of crazy, right? [Ava shakes her head] Keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting it to come out different. [Ava chuckles]
Officer: Sir, I'm gonna need you to step aside.
Raylan Givens: Okay, maybe I'm crazy, or I'm just having a hell of a day: did you just give me an order?
Officer: You don't move, I'm gonna shoot you.
[Both draw, Raylan shoots the officer, Ava and Boyd yell in surprise]
Raylan Givens: [calmly] Jesus, I hope I got that right.

Boyd Crowder: Now, all the things you've done, the way you built your fortunes, it might make you criminals, but it don't make you outlaws. I am the outlaw, and this is my world, and my world has a high cost of living.

The Hatchet Tour [4.09][edit]

Art Mullan: [to Nelson Dunlop] I want you to sit down and get use to purging case files until I figure out how to like you again!

Raylan Givens: This prisoner is one Hunter Mosley. And he may be the only person I know alive Who knows Drew Thompson.
Wynn Duffy: Well, now.
Raylan Givens: Mr. Mosley is being transported to Supermax in the recent wake of putting a shiv in Arlo Givens, such to end his life. So I figure, Dixie mafia has got a history with Arlo and Drew. Why not put the two of you together and see what shakes out?
Wynn Duffy: I'm sorry. Wait. Are you saying Arlo is dead?
Raylan Givens: You don't seem happy. I figured, if you ordered the hit, we'd all be drinking wild Turkey by now.
Wynn Duffy: Deputy Marshall, I am truly sorry for your loss, but you have to understand...I had no idea.
Raylan Givens: [after a short pause] Thank you, Wynn. Whatever your other failings, I believe that's true.

Boyd Crowder: Well cousin Johnny, Ava and I have been trying to put together a puzzle and it seems you have some of the missing pieces. Why don't you start from the beginning?

Hunter Mosley: Raylan, you listen to what your mama taught you and not that old son-of-bitch you may turn out all right. But I wouldn't count on it, 'cause we both know whose voice it is that makes you do what you do.

Get Drew [4.10][edit]

Art: First thing we're gonna do is we're gonna acknowledge that this guy is awesome.
Rachel: What?
Art: I mean, he shoots Theo Tonin, fakes his own death in spectacular fashion, pushes a guy out of an airplane while he's flying it, parachutes into Harlan county with enough coke and cash to jumpstart the economy of small country, and then he has the balls to get a job in law enforcement, not once, but two times! He spends a couple days riding around with you while you're looking for him, and now he's run off with a hooker half his age. That's some badass shit.
Raylan: It's pretty badass.

Johnny Crowder: Boyd doesn't give a damn about nothing. Never did. When we was kids, he'd build half a tree house, and then he'd run off and go build a go-kart. And then he'd forget them both and spend the whole rest of the summer stealing candy and trading it for cigarettes.
Raylan Givens: I'll take your word for it. I just dug coal with the man.
Johnny Crowder: And he gets back from the war, and he finds Jesus. And he receives his ordination through the mail from one of them Bible colleges down in South Carolina or some shit, making us all learn the ways of white supremacy, as it was laid down by the Lord almighty. Then he goes on and on and on about white flight and all that shit. You know what that is?
Raylan Givens: Mm-hmm. People moving out of town?
Johnny Crowder: White people moving to the suburbs.
Rachel Brooks: 'Cause they want to cut grass and have barbecues?
Johnny Crowder: Shit, no. 'Cause they want to get away from black people like you and all the greasers and the asiatics and all the goddamn Mexicans running around infecting the place. But, you know, these are Boyd's words.
Raylan Givens: Johnny. What's your point?
Johnny Crowder: You know what he's doing now, Raylan? He's buying a house in the goddamn suburbs! Up there on Clover Hill, because the man is in love.
Rachel Brooks: You sound like he stole your girlfriend.
Johnny Crowder: Ha! No. He stole Raylan's girlfriend. He stole my job. Oh, but I did get this as a consolation prize for believing all of his bullshit.
Raylan Givens: Thing is, Johnny, you didn't get cut in half from Bo's shotgun 'cause of Boyd. You got shot 'cause that's the shit that happens when you choose to live a life as a small-time asshole.

Boyd: [to Raylan] You shoulda been on the other side, with me and your daddy. You'd still be able to shoot people, and be an asshole...your two favorite activities.

Shelby Parlow/Drew Thompson: You couldn't hurt anybody, except maybe a weak, broken-down whore. You ain't man enough to pull that trigger. But go on. Do it. Do it!
[Rhodes points his gun at Shelby, then breaks into laughter.]]
Colton Rhodes: Nice try. I appreciate your effort. You are gonna wish that I shot you. What do think they're gonna do to you once they get ahold of you, huh? Hmm? Cut you up in pieces? Waterboard you? And cut out that eye?
Shelby Parlow/Drew Thompson: You heard about that, huh?
Colton Rhodes: I've seen men in the service die slow. It is a horrible way to go.

Decoy [4.11][edit]

Nicky Augustine: Look at you, Mr. Crowder. You're a well dressed man, you got a sense of style, you got your shirt buttoned all the way up to the top. I gotta ask where'd you get all those teeth?
Boyd Crowder: Courtesy of the American taxpayer while serving our great nation in Desert Storm.
Nicky Augustine: Man, I love the way you talk, using forty words when four will do. I'm curious. What would you say if I was about to put forty bullets through that beautiful vest of yours?

Art Mullen: [Tim slams on the breaks] What the hell?! What are you doing?
Tim Gutterson: It's not right.
Art Mullen: What's not right?
Tim Gutterson: One abandoned car beside the road's no big deal, but two so close together that's weird.
Art Mullen: That's Kentucky.
Tim Gutterson: How bout a third? [points to another up the road]
Art Mullen: What are you thinking? IEDs?
Tim Gutterson: I'm not thinking confetti cans.
Art Mullen: Are you sure about this?
Tim Gutterson: For all I know I'm just having a full blown PTSD episode.
Art Mullen: You get those a lot?
Tim Gutterson: Only when I'm handling firearms in public.

Tim Gutterson: [calling Colt realizing he's put IEDs in cars to ambush his team] Am I right in saying that you were in the sandbox before Afghanistan?
Colton Rhodes: I am a double winner. Is that why you called, to ask me that?
Tim Gutterson: Oh, why? You busy?
Colton Rhodes: I am in the middle of something.
Tim Gutterson: All right, I'll make it quick. I'm writing a book set in Iraq. There's a chapter where a convey of military police is transporting a criminal, and Lieutenant Dan, he's our main guy, he gets a bad feeling—
Colton Rhodes: Forrest Gump.
Tim Gutterson: Huh?
Colton Rhodes: There's a Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump.
Tim Gutterson: Oh shit, you're right. I'll change it. Lieutenant Colt.
Colton Rhodes: I would like a young Gérard Depardieu to play me in the movie. I'm honored.
Tim Gutterson: Well you should be, he's a big guy, a real badass, or he was, he's kind of losing his grip when we meet him, he's lost someone, he's started using dope that he confiscated.
Colton Rhodes: Yeah but then we find out he's kicked again, and anyone who thinks he's in anyway diminished is in for a big surprise.
Tim Gutterson: Yeah, but he's the kind of character might say he's kicked but we all know he's just one broken shoelace away from sayin' "screw it" and picking up again.
Colton Rhodes: How about you have him go into a bar and pick a fight with some rangers and he send a couple of them to the hospital?
Tim Gutterson: It's not a fantasy. Anyway, he gets a bad feeling when they pass an abandoned vehicle, sees a second and a third, so he's thinking IEDs triggered by cell. You ever come across anything like that?
Colton Rhodes: Me, personally? No. But I did hear about this one convoy, couple of Frankensteins and a gun truck on highway 10. So, the spotter, he calls a halt between the first two cars thinking the Hajis will blow the second if it moves forward, and the first if it tries to go back.
Tim Gutterson: Well, how'd they get out of it?
Colton Rhodes: Yeah, they didn't. Because they were too afraid to move, they just sat there in their vehicles, pssing and shitting in their helmets, too afraid to toss it out the windows on account of possible snipers. Then they ran out of food. They started eating each other till there was only one left, and he blew his brains out. Do you want to know the sad part?
Tim Gutterson: Oh, there's a sad part?
Colton Rhodes: Yeah. Because they were so afraid to move, they never found out whether or not the cars had explosives. So basically, they all died from being pussies.

Nicky Augustine: [to Ava] Why are you talking? Huh? Oh, you don't like that question? Let me ask you another. How many dicks you got to suck to get to the top of the food chain around here? It's got to be a ton of dicks. It's got to be, like, morning, noon, and night. Like, ever since you were 14. It's got to be like, the alarm goes off, "I'm sucking dick. Where's another dick I can suck?" Dick, dick, dick. Go to bed, suck a dick. Dicks, dicks, dicks. It's got to be a ton. I mean, a small-time, blond girl like you, looking for a better life? Plenty of girls like you, but what sets you apart? Extraordinary vacuuming skills.

Nicky Augustine: [to Ava] You really love Boyd, don't you? That ring he got you, where'd he get it from, one of those claw machines at Denny's? He must be good at that machine, 'cause it's hard to get something, you know.

Peace of Mind [4.12][edit]


Raylan Givens: Did you not wake up this morning thinking this was another opportunity to mess up some bad guy's day? I did.

Winona Hawkins: [wanting Raylan to sign paperwork for their baby] It's kind of important that you get it done before she's born.
Raylan Givens: Yes. Listen, it's gonna be the first thing I do— What did you just say? [the office breaks out in applause]
Winona Hawkins: We're having a girl, Raylan. I found out this morning.
Raylan Givens: A girl. Holy shit. Hold on. [office continues to clap for him] Thank you. I'm on the phone. Seriously. [back to Winona] Winona, I don't know shit about girls.
Winona Hawkins: That is so sweet, sayin' it like I don't already know.

Art Mullen: What's the matter with you, Raylan? Not used to positive attention?
Raylan Givens: No, I loved that. Can we continue?
Tim Gutterson: No, the moment's gone.

Colton Rhodes: [lighting a cigarette] Gonna quit tomorrow.
Tim Gutterson: What do you think you're doing?
Colton Rhodes: I'm smoking.
Tim Gutterson: Did you kill my friend?
Colton Rhodes: You know what it's like to be in the shit. Go back there enough times, and bad things happen.
Tim Gutterson: So, you did kill him?
Colton Rhodes: Collateral damage. I'm sorry about what happened to your friend Mark, but I think most of him died somewhere in Kandahar.
Tim Gutterson: Only part I'm concerned about is the one that died here. Last time I'm telling you. Put your weapon on the ground.
Colton Rhodes: [Colt exhales his cigarette smoke] I guess I'll quit today.
[Colt raises his gun; Tim shoots him in the chest]

Boyd Crowder: I believe you dictate the river of fate through your own actions.

Ghosts [4.13][edit]

Ethan Picker: So, out of nowhere, Crowder calls and says he's bringing the marshal, and you just drop everything to play "high noon". You want to explain to me how this makes any sense?
Nicky Augustine: All the shit I've heard about this guy, there's no way I'm saying no to a face-to-face.

Nicky Augustine: We wouldn't even be having this conversation if you'd popped the marshal in the first place.
Ethan Picker: [chuckles bitterly] Christ.
Nicky Augustine: But instead you let him back you down.
Ethan Picker: He didn't back me down. The cops pulled up.
Nicky Augustine: Well, all I know is, if I'd have been there, he'd never walked out.
Ethan Picker: Oh. And that would have been pointless, Nicky. It would have just drawn heat, as usual.
Nicky Augustine: You think too much. Pay the check.

Boyd Crowder: I count four to one. That hardly seems fair.
Raylan: Which way do you mean?

Ethan Picker: Higher up the Mountain, worse the footing gets.
Raylan Givens: Plane crashes, first class always hits the hardest.
Ethan Picker: I learned one thing a long time ago: Doesn't pay to be the lead dog.

Raylan Givens: What are you carrying?
Nicky Augustine: Oh, I don't have a gun.
Raylan Givens: Maybe you should get one.
Nicky Augustine: Why? So you can have a reason?
Raylan Givens: You already gave me a reason.
Nicky Augustine: Bullshit. Take one look at you, I know you're not the kind of guy who'd just execute me. It's not who you are. Then you come in here with your bullshit cop threats, knowing that if your bluff gets called, you can always hide behind your badge. I don't have a badge. All I got is my word. So if I say I'm gonna kill your family, I'm gonna kill your family. 'Cause these animals out here, they think they can get over on me, they'll tear me to pieces. You want to know where I'm headed? I'm headed to Detroit to kill Theo's pasty little pussy of a son. But I'll be back for your family. You had a chance to save them this morning, but instead, you took out three of my guys. So the only chance they have now is if you use that Glock on me to end this. If you're not gonna do it, get the hell out of my car.

Season 5[edit]

A Murder of Crowes [5.01][edit]

Raylan Givens: The next one's comin' faster.

The Kids Aren't All Right [5.02][edit]

Raylan Givens: You get in the weed business with teenagers, and it's their fault when things go wrong? You the type of fella who walks under a flock of birds, and is surprised when he ends up with shit on his face?

Good Intentions [5.03][edit]

Wade Messer: There's a lot of expense in taking care of whores.

Raylan Givens: It's the kind of thing you drop soon as you discover girls. And yet here you are, all growed up, still dinging and donging and don't have the sense to ditch.

Boyd Crowder: Now sometimes being a man means you gotta know when to put your foot down. Well, put your foot down, Dewey Crowe!

Raylan Givens: I hoped you were the kind of man who chooses not to live in the past.
Wynn Duffy: Well, normally I am. It's just that, you know, try to kill me once, shame on you…

Wynn Duffy: You're protecting me from a situation that you created?
Raylan Givens: I can see how'd you'd see it that way if you want to focus on the negative.

Over the Mountain [5.04][edit]

Raylan Givens: Did it get you?
Tim Gutterson: No, but I think something just came between me and my Calvins.

Albert Fekus: Now answer my question.
Ava Crowder: I was thinking, aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Daryl Crowe Jr.: Marshal, you know good and well ain't nobody going nowhere. Matter of fact, we came up here to lay down roots. 'sides, if you had good enough reason to run us out of here, you'd have done it already. Ain't that right?
Raylan Givens: Just remember, so when later you're regretting the decision you made, remember I gave you the chance.

Shot All to Hell [5.05][edit]

Boyd Crowder: to Lee Paxton] People of Harlan County, rich and poor, will marvel at your debasement and venality. They will spit venom when they speak your name. And they will take your suicide as the last pact of a coward. Now your reputation is ruined, your good word worthless, but death will not be the end of your suffering. For generations your children, and your children's children will have a mark against their name, and that will be your legacy.

Art Mullen: Well, see, now you know my name and I know yours, but these two guys, what, am I just gonna have to guess? I'll bet you're Mike. I'll show you I did my homework. I know that you are his hairdresser.
Mike: You got it, pops. Step outside, I'll give you a clip.
Art Mullen: Now, that means that you must be, Mr. Picker, right? Ethan Picker. You have a rather noble profile, Mr. Picker. Is that due to your Greek heritage?
Ethan Picker: I got my nose from a surgeon in Beverly Hills.

Art Mullen: I'm gonna give you ten seconds to leave, and then I'm gonna shoot you.
Wynn Duffy: FYI, that's kind of a thing with these marshals.

Dewey Crowe: All I'm saying, you do a thing that you never done one day, shit changes. And you change, and things change, and everything's changing…

Daryl Crowe Jr.: So we're clear. You are saying no?
Boyd Crowder: I been accused of being a lot of things. 'Inarticulate' ain't one of them.

Kill the Messenger [5.06][edit]

Wynn Duffy: You must be Mr. Yoon.
Mr. Yoon: And how do you know that? Oh, the one wonton among the tortillas?
Boyd Crowder: I would have said 'kimchee in the salsa'.

Danny Crowe: Carl said he ain't gonna press charges. He said we were up there doing some sex thing, and it was… it was… consens… it was consexual.

Raw Deal [5.07][edit]

Boyd Crowder: [to Johnny] Well, look at you. Even vultures can fly south for the winter.

Mr. Yoon: In all my years of doing business, this is a first. And I don't mean that in a good way.

Chris: Technology to reply to a post is decades away.

Wendy Crowe: [to Raylan] I have to admit I find your blatant abuse of government privilege incredibly sexy.

Boyd Crowder: [to Johnny] You know, what you could never understand is that some men lead and some men follow, and when you can't lead and you refuse to follow, you die alone in the desert.

Whistle Past the Graveyard [5.08][edit]

Dewey Crowe: That's gonna look awful bad, we get pulled over with a load of dead dudes in the truck.
Daryl Crowe: You ain't gotta worry, cousin Dewey. We'll hide 'em underneath all that heroin.

Wrong Roads [5.09][edit]

Raylan Givens: I'm on vacation, actually.
Alex Miller: Vacation? And you thought you'd come to Memphis and kick the hornet's nest, huh?
Raylan Givens: And have some ribs.
Alex Miller: [mocking] And have some ribs. Yeah.

Wynn Duffy: Hi, this is Wynn Duffy in 236. Could you send up another pot of coffee, please? Because this one tastes like my ass on Sunday. Thank you, dear.

Raylan Givens: Miller, would you call this a herd, a gaggle, or a flock of assholes?
Alex Miller: I would call this a United Nations of assholes.
Boyd Crowder: Well, that's funny because we were just discussing ratifying some shit.

Roscoe: "King Lear"? Shakespeare? Basically, Lear split his kingdom in half and gave it to his two daughters, deal being Lear get to hang out and keep 100 knights. They agree, and then later, these two bitch-ass daughters, they change the deal. They like, "well, daddy, what you need with 100 knights? 50, 10, 5? What you need with one?" Lear says, "reason not the need." Hot damn! Reason not the need.
Raylan Givens: Uh-huh. I don't understand what these two are talking about, but I got to admit I'm interested.
Roscoe: Well, in the analogy, we be Lear, and we just want what's rightfully ours, and then we out, never to be seen again. And, well, they the bitches. You can have them and they kingdom.

Art Mullen: [to Raylan] Jesus Christ. Is this real, or has early-onset dementia finally set in, and I'm starting to see you in my waking hours?

Weight [5.10][edit]

Dewey Crowe: This conversation is just you and me.
Boyd Crowder: Hold on, Dewey, I'm gonna put you on speaker phone.

Katherine Hale: Wow, you got yourself caught between the Detroit rock and the shitkicker hard place. Trafficking in weight, like you said you never would. What happened Wynn? Did you finally just get greedy?
Wynn Duffy: [quietly] I don't know what happened.

Dickie Bennett: Alright, Raylan, alright, you win. You wanna find Dewey here's what you do. First of all go to a gas'n'go or whatever and get yourself a map of Kentucky. Follow route 9 southbound with your finger, follow it way way down until you're pointing right at... your asshole, and then what you gonna do is you're gonna take your hand and just go ahead and cram it right up inside. You gotta make sure, Raylan, that you do it in a way so that the rest of you just keeps on following your hand right up your ass, right up inside all that shit you're so full of, Raylan. And then what you gonna do is you're just gonna [whistles] wink out of existence forever.
Raylan: Proud of that one, aren't you?
Dickie Bennett: ...It'll do.

Danny Crowe: I had this buddy that ran a puppy mill in Sarasota, and he got popped for a DUI. He asked me to take care of his puppies. And I found this, this litter of dead puppies. I guess the mom had died when she was giving birth and couldn't take care of the brood. But there was one puppy who was barely alive, and it was Chelsea. And I, I raised her up.

Boyd Crowder: You know, I spend most of my time in the company of criminals. Now one could argue I'm guilty by association, but between me and you, I'm every bit as despicable as they are.

The Toll [5.11][edit]

Boyd Crowder: Mr. Picker, the only explaining I've ever done in my life was to my Mama when she caught me sneaking in after my curfew. And you ain't my Mama. But I'll indulge you with a short answer to your question: Shit happens, Mr. Picker.

David Vasquez: She tell you anything about why she was at Duffy's hotel suite?
Rachel Brooks: [imitating Katherine's accent] "Visiting an old family friend. Is that a crime?"
David Vasquez: Well, not compared to racketeering, conspiracy, and murder, no.

Ethan Picker: Our friends in Mexico are furious about the bullshit that happened in the desert -
Wynn Duffy: I need you to be quiet.
Ethan Picker: - they're this close to sending a goddamn hit squad up here.
Wynn Duffy: I need you to stop.
Ethan Picker: I say we put Boyd Crowder's head in a goddamn box!
Wynn Duffy: [standing] Mr. Picker!

Boyd Crowder: I may not know a lot about a lot of things, but I do know how to blow shit up.

Daryl Crowe Jr.: Just so I'm clear, you're not gonna kill me? 'Cause I was worried for a minute.
Raylan Givens: Oh, be worried.
Daryl Crowe Jr.: Yeah?
Raylan Givens: 'Cause that web of bullshit you spun around yourself to protect yourself? I'm gonna use it to strangle the life out of you and take away everything you got. Then you're gonna wish I'd have blacked you out - with a bullet to the head.
Daryl Crowe Jr.: Well, this feels like one of those "time will tell" deals which, as a free man, I have plenty of. Question is: how much time you got?

Starvation [5.12][edit]

Wynn Duffy: Alberto, was it? Alberto, I'm not one to niggle over management styles, but let's say you would have let me know you were coming, I would have preserved some proof for you. A head, say, or a set of teeth?

Wynn Duffy: My suite is being cleaned. The microwave exploded.
Rachel Brooks: Someone put metal in the science oven?
Tim Gutterson: I finally saw that.
Rachel Brooks: What did you think?
Tim Gutterson: Needs more Jason Statham.

Dewey Crowe: I give you a gift, the anus is on you to take care of it, not just give it away to any old dick face happens along.

Dewey Crowe: This it then, Raylan? No final words, put Dewey Crowe in his place?
Raylan Givens: My advice? Stop talking about yourself in the third person. Makes you sound like a fool.
Dewey Crowe: Third person? This guy? [indicating the driver] Man, I don't understand you.

Raylan Givens: You said you'd help us get him. You didn't get him. So we'll be proceeding to convene a grand jury, bring charges against you as soon as possible.
Boyd Crowder: Are you back to that file bullshit?
Raylan Givens: Bullshit?
[Raylan opens his desk and pulls out a thick file of papers.]]
Raylan Givens: There it is. Thick with the names of the suffering and the dead, and many felled by your own hands. A trail of human wreckage you've left rotting in jail cells and cold graves throughout this state. And why? Because they had the poor judgment to believe your lies and follow your tune. Well, it's high time that tune reached a shuddering crescendo.

Restitution [5.13][edit]

Raylan Givens: Say, what's the first thing you ever killed? You're from Florida, right?
Kendal Crowe: Gator, maybe. When I was 11.
Raylan Givens: I was 11, too, or thereabouts. Wasn't a gator, though. Will Hendricks' pig got out of its pen, went feral, started tearing up my mama's vegetable patch. Arlo built the trap, caught it, gave me a gun, said, "get 'er done." You ever see a pig that's gone feral? Nasty. Tusks grow. They get dirty, ill-tempered. They don't look bad from a distance, but get up close, best watch your ass. You hook the gator before you?
Kendal Crowe: Danny hooked him. Wanted to do it himself, but Daryl said it was my time.
Raylan Givens: Well, there you are, pointing that gun at something that's staring back at you, right? Longer I stood there, the less I wanted to do it. Not that I had a choice. Arlo'd tan my hide if I didn't.
Kendal Crowe: Danny called me a pussy.
Raylan Givens: Ain't about being a pussy, though, is it? No small thing, taking a life. Hell, my hand was shaking so bad, first shot nearly missed. Pig squealing, bucking, spraying blood. Put three more shots just to get it to lay still. I knew I should have felt good about it, but I didn't. Walked home, stepped through the front door, and threw up. That's when Arlo called me a pussy. He beat the shit out of me, too. Started thinking less about what I'd done to that pig and more - about what I'd like to do to Arlo.
Kendal Crowe: Well, did you do it?
Raylan Givens: Not as such. I always wondered, though, if I didn't join the Marshals just to prove something to him what a badass I was. Maybe just to spite him. He hated me being a lawman. And I knew. I knew when I joined that I might have to shoot someone in the line of duty. But first time it happened, god damn if it wasn't the same feeling sick to my stomach. Just kept asking myself if there was something I could have done different short of pulling my gun. - What was it like for you?
Kendal Crowe: What, the gator? It's a goddamn dinosaur. Who gives a shit?

Boyd Crowder: Now, some folks say Disneyland is the happiest place on Earth. Well, I promise those folks ain't never partied with Boyd Crowder in Sin City.

Alberto Ruiz: You have good hunting around here?
Boyd Crowder: Not bad. My daddy used to take me and my brother when we was young, but I didn't much care for it. Prefer to hunt animals who have a chance to fight back.
Alberto Ruiz: My father took me as well - to the Sonoran desert.
Boyd Crowder: Ah. Hunting big game, like scorpions - and lizards and whatnot?
Alberto Ruiz: Mostly bighorn sheep and mule deer. We'd spend the morning making our kills, take them back to our campsite, where my father taught me how to skin them. The first cut, you make right down the belly. Bleed the animal, remove the insides, careful not to puncture the bladder. Next, you remove the genitals. Now you are ready to the take the skin. Cut first at the ankle joints, snap the tendons, start to peel back the pelt. The trick is to remove it in one piece. It's easiest when the animal is still warm.
Boyd Crowder: You want me shit my pants, Alberto? 'Cause it seems to me, that'd make your job a hell of a lot more unpleasant. You see, I know real pain. Shit you can't even imagine. Now, you want to put me out of my misery? How 'bout you stop running your goddamn mouth and do whatever it is you got to do.

Daryl Crowe Jr.: You a dirty, rotten, nasty bitch.
Wendy Crowe: Well, I guess we all get the family we deserve, right, Daryl?
Daryl Crowe Jr.: You know good and well I ain't gonna let you walk up out of here with that, right?
Wendy Crowe: What are you gonna do, kill me?
Daryl Crowe Jr.: Mm. Give me that phone, Wendy, or I'm gonna take it - and stick it down your goddamn throat.
Wendy Crowe: Well, that'd be a real ballsy move, wouldn't it, Daryl? [Wendy presses a gun to Daryl's crotch] How are you gonna do it without your balls?

Raylan Givens: [standing over a dying Daryl] Didn't I tell you you were gonna wish I killed you? Well, don't you?
