Billy Jack: It's funny, isn't it? Only the white man wants everything put in writing, and only then so he can use it against you in court. You know, among the Indians a promise is good enough. As far as I can tell, Washington entered into 3,500 treaties with the Indians to date, and they've broken about 3,499 of 'em.
Jean: I know I've never said it to you, but I think you know. I love you.
Billy Jack: I think you know, too.
Billy Jack: Martin, do you know what mental toughness is? Well, mental toughness is the ability to accept the fact that you're human and that you're going to make mistakes - lots of 'em - all your life. And some of them are gonna hurt people that you love very badly. But you have the guts to accept the fact that you ain't perfect. And you don't let your mistakes crush you and keep you from doing the very best that you can.
Bernard: Howdy! My name is Bernard Posner.
Cindy: Oh, really?
Cindy: Is that supposed to mean something?
Bernard: Around these parts, you hear the name Posner quite a bit.
Cindy: That's very interesting. You know, you hear my name quite a bit, and not just around here either.
Bernard: No foolin'? What's your name?
Bernard: Up? Huh-huh, that's an odd name. What's your last name?
Cindy: Yours. Up yours.
Cindy: Hey! Why isnt anybody going in?
Martin: They're afraid to go in.
Martin: Indians aren't allowed in some of the stores here.
Cindy: What do you mean "not allowed"? I don't see a sign.
Kit: Indians don't need a sign, they know damn well where they're not wanted.
Cindy: Then why are you going in?
Kit: 'Cause I like ice cream.
Billy Jack: You're illegally on Indian land.
Mr. Posner: I'm sorry about that. I guess we just got caught up in the chase and crossed over without knowing it.
Billy Jack: You're a liar.
Mr. Posner: We got the law here, Billy Jack.
Billy Jack: When policemen break the law, then there isn't any law - just a fight for survival.
Billy Jack: It's funny, isn't it? Only the white man wants everything put in writing. And only then so he can use it against you in court. You know, among the Indians a promise is good enough.
Barbara: What is the snake ceremony?
Jean Roberts: A ceremony where Billy becomes brother to a snake.
Barbara: How does he do that?
Jean Roberts: By going on the mountain and being bitten by the snake over and over. Then he passes into unconsciousness for the last time. And if he lives, he has a vision. And in this vision, he finds out what his life's mission will be and who the spirit will be to guide him on this mission.
Sheriff Cole: Jean, they wanna know where Billy is.
Jean: Who ever knows where Billy is?
Sheriff Cole: Well, you must have some way of getting in touch with him when you need him for emergencies.
Jean: Whenever we want Billy, we just contact him Indian style.
Sheriff Cole: What does that mean?
Jean: We just want him and somehow he shows up.
