Rufus Ryker: I'm through foolin', Grafton. From now on when we fight with them, the air is gonna be filled with - gunsmoke.
Fred Lewis: Joe, just how far is this Ryker gonna push us?
Joe Starrett: Let's not talk scared. That's just exactly what Ryker wants. He thinks he can just shoo us off here like a flock of chickens.
Joe Starrett: That's one thing a married man has got to get used to, is waitin' for women.
Joey: Hurry up, Ma.
Marian Starrett: You're both out of your senses. This isn't worth a life, anybody's life. What are you fighting for? This shack, this little piece of ground, and nothing but work, work, work? I'm sick of it. I'm sick of trouble. Joe, let's move. Let's go on. Please.
Joe Starrett: Marion, don't say that. That ain't the truth. You love this place more than me.
Marian Starrett: Not anymore.
Joe Starrett: Even if that was the truth, it wouldn't change things.
