Lola Manners: You never know when a girl might need a bullet.

Joe Lamont: Indian smoke always means the same thing... trouble.

Opening title card: This is the story of the Winchester Rifle Model 1873, "The gun that won the West." To cowman, outlaw, peace officer or soldier, the Winchester '73 was a treasured possession. An Indian would sell his soul to own one.

Wyatt Earp: That's Dutch Henry Brown. I thought you said you didn't know him.
Lin McAdam: I said I didn't recall the name.

Sgt. Wilkes: You're a man after my stamp. Wish we'd have had you with us at Bull Run. We might not have run so fast.
Lin McAdam: Well, I wanna tell you somethin'. I was with you at Bull Run. So was High Spade.
High Spade: Only we was on the other side.

High Spade: You're about ready to fall out of the saddle. Why don't we rest up a little?
Lin McAdam: I'm not that tired.
High Spade: Four or five hours ain't gonna make any difference. We have been chasin' since... since I can't remember.

High Spade: Did you ever wonder what he'd think about you hunting down Dutch Henry?
Lin McAdam: He'd understand. He taught me to hunt.
High Spade: Not men. Hunting for food, that's all right. Hunting a man to kill him? You're beginning to like it.
Lin McAdam: That's where you're wrong. I don't like it. Some things a man has to do, so he does 'em.

Lin McAdam: Say, ah, about these Indians. It seems like they hardly ever attack at night.
Sgt. Wilkes: Why?
Lin McAdam: Well, they figure if they are killed in the dark, the Great Spirit can't find their souls and whip 'em up into heaven... or something like that.

Lin McAdam: You've been real fine people, High Spade, riding along with me.
High Spade: That's what friends are for, isn't it. At leastways, that's the way you dad always said it.
Lin McAdam: Yeah, he did, didn't he? He said if a man had one friend, he was rich. I'm rich.

Factual error: Waco Johnny Dean played by Dan Duryea grabs a pistol from a bystander and then gets shot multiple times by Jimmy Stewart. As Waco goes down he fires several rapid fire shots from a double action revolver. Not likely given the time period some time after the civil war.
