    Eula Goodnight: Reuben, I have to say it. Livin' with you has been an adventure any woman would relish for the rest o' time.

  • Eula Goodnight: Just to whom do you think you are talking, Mr. Marshall?

    Rooster Cogburn: You is to whom I think I am talking, Ma'am.

    Eula Goodnight: It's true that you are larger than me... but only physically.

    Rooster Cogburn: In this case, my dear lady, that is enough.

    Eula Goodnight: Do you mean to tell me that you are prepared to use brute force?

    Eula Goodnight: [pause] Oh.

  • Rooster Cogburn: Say, uh, there's one thing I would like to get straight.

  • McCoy: Do you know anything about rafts? There's rough water down river.

    Rooster Cogburn: I can ride. Can't be much different.

    McCoy: You ain't no sailor. I can see that. Water is like a woman: sly and fickle. You gotta watch it every minute.

    Rooster Cogburn: You a sailor?

    Eula Goodnight: You're wrong, old man. We're made in God's image, and goodness is in us. Even in you.

    McCoy: Amazing! I never took you for a Bible-thumper.

    Rooster Cogburn: Hold it. She is what she is 'cause she wants to be. That's the way you take her. Like me.

    McCoy: You're wastin' your time preachin'. You too, Sister. I'm a ship that can't be salvaged.

    Rooster Cogburn: Ow!
