Red Doc[edit]

  • [first lines] My name is Red Doc. And I can whip any man in the house and ride any filly in the place.


Madame Lorraine: Big boy, I'm Madame Lorraine. I'm ready to see you got the goods, but it'll cost you.
Red Doc: Heh. On horseback, hanging from a chandelier. You name it.

[Hex arrives in town]
Young Man: I know who you are. You're that Jonah Hex.
Jonah Hex: Congratulations.
Young Man: I could shoot six bottles off a fence and not miss a one.
Jonah Hex: Who gives a damn?
Young Man: I can take it!
[tries to draw for his gun, but Hex punches him]

Madame Lorraine: Hey, cowboy. How would you like to trade that drink for some real firewater upstairs?
Jonah Hex: You asking because I'm so handsome?
Madame Lorraine: Because I think you can afford a good time.

Madame Lorraine: You wouldn't hit a lady?
Jonah Hex: You ain't no lady.
[slugs her]

Madame Lorraine: You hit me!
Jonah Hex: Hard as I could.

[last lines]
Madame Lorraine: Wait! We could be partners. I don't mind splitting the take. [a rope falls down the mine shaft, leaving Madame Lorraine no means of escape. Up above, Jonah Hex finishes pulling a corpse out of the mine shaft] Don't turn me in. I don't wanna go to jail.
Jonah Hex: Wouldn't think of it.
Madame Lorraine: You can't leave me here alone!
Jonah Hex: You ain't alone. You got plenty of company. And you know everybody there.
