Pecos Bill[edit]

  • This ain't nothin' compared to the summer of '88. It was so hot, that chickens was layin' fried eggs, and babies was cryin' out sawdust. So I hightailed it up to Kansas...
  • Can't get any worse than this.
  • I am a ring-tailed roarer. I can draw faster, shoot straighter, ride harder, and drink longer than any man alive. I'm the rip-snortinest cowboy that ever rode North, South, East or West of the Rio Grande. I'm Pecos Bill.

J.P. Stiles[edit]

  • There's going to be more after me and more after them and after them. Long's there's a profit to be made, we'll never stop. We're comin'!

Others[edit]

  • [Repeated quote: The Code] Respect the land, defend the defenseless, and don't never spit in front of women or children.
