Julian Rogers Quotes in Wagons East (1994)
Julian Rogers Quotes:
Ben Wheeler: But leaving would be like giving up.
Phil Taylor: That's exactly what it would be, Ben - giving up! So let's just give up. Let's get out of here. Let's get ourselves a wagon master and go home. Let's go east. What do you say?
Bartender: I say you're a bunch of gutless lily-livered, yellow-belly eastern sissies. All you've done since you got here was whine and complain. Now why don't you go back and leave the west to the real men?
Julian Rogers: Well, actually, I could have the books on the wagon really quickly. And the cappucino machine, you know, is going to travel like a dream.
Billy: [while Julian is washing his back] So, what brought you out west, Julian?
Julian Rogers: Oh, the men. I heard it was just plumb full of them.
Billy: Oh, because men read more books than women.
Julian Rogers: Uh, yeah.
Julian Rogers: I'm going back west.
Belle: What could be there for you?
Julian Rogers: San Francisco.
John Slade: The name's Slade.
Julian Rogers: Super. Here's an idea. Why don't you spell it out for me so I can get it right on your tombstone.
John Slade: Your move, sissy boy.
Julian Rogers: Sissy boy? Oh please, that's so Dodge City.
Ben Wheeler: We can't go East.
Phil Taylor: Why not?
Ben Wheeler: Because!
Phil Taylor: Why?
Zeke: Because it's against "The Code."
Phil Taylor: It's against what code?
Ben Wheeler: You know very well what code. The Code... of the West.
Phil Taylor: Oh, the Code of the West. Isn't that the same code that says, ah...
Ben Wheeler: "The only good Indian is a dead Indian."
Phil Taylor: And "Die with your boots on." Wait, wait a minute, I got another one for you - "If someone steals your horse, you hang him." That's some code. Hey, this is quite a code! Let's just stay here! What a code.
Julian Rogers: It's not a very enlightened ideology.
Julian Rogers: I'd like to recommend one of my favorite authors to you - a woman named Jane Austen. This is a writer of just wonderfully exquisite prose. And, of course, as ou can see, it's a big damn book. Oh, "Pride and Prejudice". Harry Bob, I think you're going to get more than a run for your money out of this one.
Harry Bob: How much?
Julian Rogers: Well, I think two dollars is a fair price.
Harry Bob: Really.
Julian Rogers: Uh-huh.
Harry Bob: How much for just "Pride"?
Julian Rogers: Well, actually, one does hate to break up the set.
Harry Bob: All right, but I got to test it first.
[He tears out some pages from the book]
Harry Bob: Where's the outhouse?
