Ned Buntline Quotes:

  • Ned Buntline: You know the Indian, Cody, don't you?

    William F. 'Buffalo Bill' Cody: Nobody knows the Indian. I've had to fight them since I was fourteen. Pony Express, stage driver, scouting. Indians never do what you'd expect.

  • Ned Buntline: Injuns gear their lives to dreams. And what an injun dreams, no matter how farfetched, will wait until he dies to come true. The white men - they're different. The only time they dream is when things are going their way. I'm no expert on the subject, but it seems to me that what Sitting Bull does is a hell of a lot cheaper than mounting a wild west show... which is dreaming out loud.

  • Ned Buntline: Bill, any youngster like yourself who figures to set the world on fire best not forget where he got the matches.

  • Nate Salisbury: I'm the only partner Bill Cody ever had who tells him the truth. And in the end, we always agree.
