The Quick and the Dead
Movie Quote Quiz

John Herod: I said, are you still fast?
Cort: Faster than you.

Cort: There's a click before the strike. Listen to the clock.

Kid: I'm worth $3,000 in four states. Seventy-five offenses and no convictions. My name's Fee but, uh... everyone calls me the Kid.
Ellen: Congratulations.

Kid: Want some breakfast? Or, uh, how 'bout a little of what we had last night?

Kid: No no no no, you see it's a gun fight. We both have guns. We aim, we fire, you die.

Kid: The Smith and Wesson Schofield .45. Just meat and potatoes. Me and Jesse James think it's the best handgun in the world. Had the trigger guard removed, it saves drawin' time. Don't ever wear it when you're drunk, or you'll kill your feet.

John Herod: Like I always say - put a fox in the henhouse and you'll have chicken for dinner every time.

Cantrell: Sergeant Cantrell.
Shemp: How do you spell that?
Cantrell: Correctly.

Kid: Is it possible? Is it possible to improve on _perfection_?

Kid: The gunfight is in the head, not the hands.

Ellen: Don't you even want to fight back?
Cort: Sure. I'd like to kill them all for what they've done. But I won't. Killing people is wrong.
Ellen: Some people deserve to die.

John Herod: Like I always say - put a fox in the henhouse and you'll have chicken for dinner every time.

Cort: Last night, The Kid. Tonight, Herod. You're a busy woman. Any man in this town you're not interested in?
Ellen: Yeah. You.

Kid: Am I fast, or is Sweden just a very small place?

Ellen: Some people deserve to die.

John Herod: The rules say you have to accept every challenge. You got a problem with that, scuttle your butt out of town.

Scars: I need a woman.
Ellen: You need a bath.

John Herod: I was married to a beautiful woman. She was unfaithful.
Ellen: Where is she now?
John Herod: I told you, she was unfaithful.

Ace Hanlon: You wanna play poker with me, little lady?
Ellen: Looks like you're having a pretty good time playing with yourself.

Ellen: In case you forgot, Preacher, I saved your life last night.
Cort: No, I think you just stretched it out a bit. I might've even gone to heaven if you'd let me die.
Ellen: Sorry.

Other mistake: During the first round of the duels we see a part of the participants list and "Scars" is missing. He should appear between "Spotted Horse" and "Sparks" according to their order of entering the competition.

Question: Who shoots Herod the first time in the final showdown with Ellen? I have replayed the video several times and her gun does not fire until the second, kill shot to the head. Cort is just behind her. Are we supposed to surmise that he shot Herod first? Just a mistake?

Answer: Ellen shoots Herod both times. There is a muzzle flash and sound effect from her gun just as Herod's shot hits her. If it helps, watch the scene in slow motion.
