Legends of the Fall
Movie Quote Quiz

One Stab: Tristan died in 1963. The moon of the popping trees. He was last seen up in the North Country, where the hunting was still good. His grave is unmarked, but it does not matter. He had always lived in the borderland anyway, somewhere between this world and the Other.

One Stab: It was a good death.

Susannah: Forever turned out to be too long.

Tristan: Miss Finncannon. It's a pleasure to meet you. I hope you and Ugly here find every happiness together.

Alfred: Susannah, you deserve to be happy.

Alfred: You don't have to be a genius to figure out they going to come after you for this.
Tristan: Yeah. Alfred?
Alfred: Yeah?
Tristan: I want to ask you to watch over my children. Watch over Samuel.
Alfred: Brother, it will be an honor.

Susannah: I still sometimes dream that I'm the mother of your children. I wanted her to die.

Colonel Ludlow: There will be no more talk of wars in this house, damn IT.

Alfred: I followed all of the rules, man's and God's. And you, you followed none of them. And they all loved you more. Samuel, Father, and my... even my own wife.

Tristan: Samuel! Samuel, come here! Run along now. Go with Pet. Get him in the house.
John T. O'Banion: He's a fine boy. You know we're not here to arrest you.
Tristan: You take me to the woods. I don't want my boy to see. I don't want my boy to see. Let's get on with it.

One Stab: It is hard to tell of happiness. Time goes by and we feel safe too soon.

Tristan: You know when Samuel died... when Samuel died, I cursed God. Did I damn everybody around me as well as myself?
Colonel Ludlow: No. You are not damned, Tristan... I won't allow that.

One Stab: Every warrior hopes a good death will find him.

Samuel: Nice shiner.
Tristan: Yeah, well, I hit her back.

Alfred: Don't mind my brother. Your dog has more breeding than he has.

Alfred: What is he wanted for, Sheriff?
John T. O'Banion: That would be of a private nature.
Colonel Ludlow: A private nature? That's a public office you hold, isn't it, Sheriff?

Colonel Ludlow: Screw'm! Screw'm all! Screw the gov'm'nt.

Tristan: Alfred's going to do well wherever he is.
Colonel Ludlow: Except here with us.
Tristan: That's my fault.
Colonel Ludlow: I didn't say that.
Tristan: I couldn't bring Samuel back home alive either, could I?
Colonel Ludlow: Don't you dare say that boy! That was in God's hands.
Tristan: Was it?

Samuel: Tristan! Get back to your unit.
Tristan: Those boys are boring. I'd rather have you watching my back.

Susannah: Tristan, I have nowhere to send this letter and no reason to believe you wish to receive it. I write it only for myself. And so I will hide it away along with all the things left unsaid and undone between us.
