  • Marcus Hamilton : [Referring to a TV evangelist]  He wouldn't know God if he crawled up his pant leg and bit him on the pecker.

  • Marcus Hamilton : This is what they call white man's intuition.

    Alberto Parker : Sometimes a blind pig finds a truffle.

  • Alberto Parker : Do you want to live here? Got an old hardware store that charges twice what Home Depot does, one restaurant with a rattlesnake for a waitress. I mean, how's someone supposed to make a living here?

    Marcus Hamilton : People have made a living here for 150 years.

    Alberto Parker : Well people lived in caves for 150k years, they don't do it no more.

    Marcus Hamilton : Ahhhh well maybe your people did.

    Alberto Parker : You're people did too. A long time ago your ancestors was the indians until someone came along and killed them. Broke em down made you into one of them. 150 years ago all this was my ancestors land. Everything you could see, everything you saw yesterday. Until the grandparents of these folks took it. Now it's been taken from them. Cept it ain't no army doin' it, it's those sons of bitches right there. points at Texas Midland Bank.

    T-Bone Waitress : You know. I've been working here for 44 years. Ain't nobody ever ordered nothing but T-Bone steak and a baked potato. Except this one asshole from New York tried to order trout back in 1987. We don't sell no goddamned trout. T-bone steaks.

    T-Bone Waitress : Uh-huh.

    Marcus Hamilton : Well I'll tell you one thing. Nobody's gonna rob this son of bitch.

    Alberto Parker : My word.

    Cowboy : Ought to let it just turn me to ashes, put me out of my misery. *Cut that fence!* 21st century, I'm racing a fire to the river with a herd of cattle. And I wonder why my kids won't do this shit for a living.
