- Poor little maroon. So, trusting. So naive.
- Heh. Just like Gary Cooper, huh?
- [last lines; to Yosemite Sam, as he leaves on the train] So long, Sammy! See you in Miami!
- Patrons: [shocked] Yosemite Sam!
- Yosemite Sam: Yeah, Yosemite Sam! The roughest, toughest, he-man, hombres ever crossed the Rio Grande, and I isn't no namby-pamby! Now, all of you skunks clear out of here! [shoots everywhere]
- [Everyone leaves the saloon; the last one out is an actual skunk]
- Skunk: My, weren't there a lot of skunks in here?
- [Sam shoots again, causing the skunk to run away]
- Yosemite Sam: Listen, stranger. This town isn't big enough fer the two of us!
- Bugs Bunny: It isn't? Eh, pardon me, Mac. [exits the saloon, followed by construction noises until he returns] Now is it big enough?
- [A much-larger city has been built behind the town]
- Yosemite Sam: Naw, still isn't big enough.
- Bugs Bunny: Gin rummy's my game, Sam.
- Yosemite Sam: Okay, cut the cards. [Bugs takes a hatchet and chops the deck of cards in two] Not that-a way, you darn galoot!
