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.
