Oswaldo Mobray Quotes:
Oswaldo Mobray: The man who pulls the lever that breaks your neck will be a dispassionate man. And that dispassion is the very essence of justice. For justice delivered without dispassion is always in danger of not being justice.
Oswaldo Mobray: [about paying Mannix bounties] We could give him Marco. Bob's real name is Marco the Mexican. He's worth $12,000.
Major Marquis Warren: [points his gun towards Bob's body] Wait. That's Marco the Mexican?
Oswaldo Mobray: [nods] Precisely, yeah.
Major Marquis Warren: [chuckles] Shit, after I blowed his face off; "Marco" ain't worth a "peso"!
[bursts out laughing]
Oswaldo Mobray: [smiles] Well, well, well! Looks like Minnie's Haberdashery's about to get cosy for the next few days.
[sips his hot coffee and smirks]
Sheriff Chris Mannix: Yes, it does...
Oswaldo Mobray: [to Mannix about hanging women] Well, 'till they invent a trigger a woman can't pull, if you're a hang man, you're going to hang woman!
Oswaldo Mobray: Gentlemen, I know Americans aren't apt to let a little thing like unconditional surrender get in the way of a good war...

Joe Gage: [shouting from inside] The door isn't open!
Daisy Domergue: [shouting from outside] What?
Oswaldo Mobray: KICK IT OPEN!
Joe Gage: [John Ruth kicks the door open] Shut that door! It's a goddamn blizzard out there!
Oswaldo Mobray: You have to close the door!
Joe Gage: You have to nail it shut!
Oswaldo Mobray: You have to- you have to nail it shut! HOLD IT SHUT!
Joe Gage: There's a hammer and nails by the door!
Oswaldo Mobray: YOU HAVE TO NAIL IT SHUT! THERE'S A HAMMER AND NAILS BY THE DOOR!
[John Ruth gets the hammer and nails and proceeds to nail the wooden door in]
John 'The Hangman' Ruth: What's your name, buster?
Oswaldo Mobray: [smiles] Well, it certainly isn't Buster. It's Oswaldo Mobray...
Oswaldo Mobray: [to John Ruth and Daisy] Well, the bar is open! Follow moi...
Oswaldo Mobray: [laughs] Jolly good!
Oswaldo Mobray: [interrupting an escalating argument] Gentlemen, Gentlemen, I know Americans aren't apt to let a little thing like an unconditional surrender get in the way of a good war. But I strongly suggest we don't re-stage The Battle of Baton Rouge during a blizzard in Minnie's Haberdashery...
Oswaldo Mobray: [lecturing Daisy] John Ruth wants to take you back to Red Rock to stand trial for murder. And, if... you're found guilty, the people of Red Rock will hang you in the town square. And as the hangman, I will perform the execution. And if all those things end up taking place, that's what civilized society calls "justice". However, if the relatives and the loved ones of the person you murdered were outside that door right now. And after busting down that door, they drug you out in the snow and hung you up by the neck, that, we would be frontier justice. Now the good part about frontier justice, is it's very thirst quenching. The bad part is it's apt to wrong as right!
John 'The Hangman' Ruth: [chiming in] Not in your case. In your case, you'd probably have it comin'. But other people, maybe not so much!
Oswaldo Mobray: But ultimately what's the real difference between the two? The real difference is me, the hangman. To me, it doesn't matter what you did. When I hang you, I will get no satisfaction from your death, it's my job! I hang you in Red Rock, I move on to the next town, I hang someone else there. The man who pulls the lever that breaks your neck will be a dispassionate man. And that dispassion is the very essence of justice. For justice delivered without dispassion is always in danger of not being justice.
John 'The Hangman' Ruth: Amen!
Jody: [to Minnie] Judy said something about the best coffee in the world?
Oswaldo Mobray: [smiles] Yes, I do believe Judy did say something about the best coffee in the world!
Minnie Mink: [laughs] Well, I don't know 'bout all that. But I'll tell ya what it is: it's hot and it's strong and it's good! And in this snow it sure enough warms your ass up!
Oswaldo Mobray: Allow me to properly introduce myself. I'm Oswaldo Mobray, The Hangman in these parts.
John 'The Hangman' Ruth: Looks like I brought you a customer.
Oswaldo Mobray: So it would appear!
Daisy Domergue: Have you ever spent two days or more locked up with one of your customers before?
Oswaldo Mobray: No, I can't say I have.
