  • Sergeant Edgar Millen: Purer fact is that he's running to save his hide, and every man he killed, he killed to protect himself.

    Constable Alvin Adams: What about Hawkins or Sundog or any of them? What did any of them die for, Millen?

    Sergeant Edgar Millen: Johnson didn't do anything I wouldn't do if I was in his boots. If I thought the killing would stop here, I'd let him go.

  • Sergeant Edgar Millen: Let me give you a little advice, kid. Just throw those law books away, huh? It's better to turn your eyes and let them fight their damn dogs. Damn sight better than them killin' each other.

    Constable Alvin Adams: But you can't let people get away with that - makin' up their own laws.

    Sergeant Edgar Millen: The only thing to remember is Millen's Law. You want to stay a Mountie, then all you have to do is keep headquarters happy, huh? 'Cause the only time they're unhappy is when there's an unaccounted for killing. So if you account for all the killings, you live to be a nice, ripe old Mountie just like me. You got that?

Then it looks like you're getting ahead. When you see it's starting to circulate on him, then its time to bust it down. Then you're past him and then you pray to the good Lord that you get out of the place before you fall flat on your ass.

  • Sergeant Edgar Millen: So go ahead, Sundog.Tell the kid what your real name is.

    Sundog/George Washington Lincoln Brown: [reluctantly after a pause] George Washington Lincoln Brown.

    Constable Alvin Adams: Eeee-yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk, whoooo!
