    [Dolworth laughs]

    Hans Ehrengard: What's so funny?

  • Bill Dolworth: Men on that train are Colorados. Expert marksmen. Also expert at torture. Couple o' years ago they burned and looted a town of three thousand people. When they finished, forty were left. Fardan's wife was one o' the lucky forty. "Why're you a revolutionary?" they asked her. "To rid the world of scum like you," she said. They stripped her naked, ran 'er through the cactus 'til her flesh was - The other thirty-nine rebels watched her die, and - did nothing. Just watched.

    Rico: Yeah, but who cares now... or even remembers?

  • Bill Dolworth: Rico, buddy. I don't deserve you.

    Rico: I agree. I can understand you getting in a crap game and losing $700 you didn't have, but how'd you lose your pants?

    Bill Dolworth: In a ladies bedroom, trying to raise the cash. Almost had it made, too. Do you realize that people are the only animals that make love face to face?

  • Jake Sharp: Mr. D, whatever got a loving man like you in the dynamite business?

    Bill Dolworth: Well, I'll tell you. I was born with a powerful passion to create. I can't write, can't paint, can't make up a song...

    Bill Dolworth: The usual. Money.

    Jesus Raza: Everything is as usual. I need guns and bullets, as usual. The war goes badly, as usual. Only you, you are not as usual.

  • Bill Dolworth: What's the proposition?

    Rico: You won't lose your pants. Your life maybe... but what's that?

  • Rico: You're gonna have to get over this nasty habit of always losing your pants. It's not dignified.

    Bill Dolworth: It's drafty, too.

    Bill Dolworth: In the ass. You?

    Jake Sharp: Right now, I don't know if it's me or the dynamite that doin' all that sweatin'.

  • Rico: What's that supposed to mean?

    Bill Dolworth: Rico, buddy. This will come as a shock to both of us. I'm a born sucker for love.

    Rico: That bullet must've knocked some of your brains out.

    Bill Dolworth: Or let some in.

    Rico: Well what happened back there? What changed your mind?

    Bill Dolworth: I found out what makes a woman worth a hundred thousand dollars.

  • Rico: Win or lose, here and now. Final neck like this, one of us might be able to hold 'em off long enough.

    Bill Dolworth: Yeah, one of us.

    Rico: If he plays it cool. Hit and run, 'n' stall and retreat.
