  • [Dr. Mangrum and Mrs. Worth are discussing the recuperating Quirt Evans]

    Dr. Mangrum: Once, when I was studying medicine in Europe, I had a friend - an artist. He drew portraits of people and made them resemble the animals they reminded him of. He'd have drawn this man as a coiled cobra.

    Mrs. Worth: Ho ho ho, Doctor, you're analogy is terribly imperfect and your naturalism faulty. Cobras don't coil.

  • [Quirt has awakened after two days recovery]

    Thomas Worth: You can't do that. We'd tend to any wounded human... and not for pay.

    Quirt Evans: You don't believe in force - so you can't force me to take it back.

    Quirt Evans: How long have I been here?

    Quirt Evans: Almost three weeks.

    Quirt Evans: Kinda hate to get goin'.

    Mrs. Worth: Oh, but you can't... your leg... you're in no condition to travel.

    Quirt Evans: Don't worry. Your cooking's got me grained up and ready for market. Adios amigos.

    Mrs. Worth: I want you to have some of these.

    [puts some rolls in one of the baskets]
