Jack Twist: My momma, she believes in the Pentecost.
Ennis Del Mar: What exactly is the Pentecost? I mean, my folks, they was Methodists.
Jack Twist: The Pentecost... I don't... I don't know what the pentacost is. I guess it means the world ends and guys like you and me march off to hell.
Ennis Del Mar: Speak for yourself. You may be a sinner, but I ain't yet had the opportunity.

What are ya waitin' for cowboy? The matin' call?

Lureen Newsome

Jack Twist: You'll like working for Roy Taylor. He's solid.
Randall Malone: Yeah, Roy, he's a good ol' boy. He's got a little cabin down on Lake Kemp. Got a croppie house, little boat. Says I can use it whenever I want. We outta go down there some weekend. Drink a little whiskey, fish some, get away. You know?

[yelling to his father-law] This is MY house, that is MY kid, and YOU are MY guest, and you will sit your arrogant ass down before I knock it into next week!

Jack Twist

Alma Jr.: Daddy, tell about when you rode broncs in the rodeo.
Ennis Del Mar: Short story honey. Only 'bout three seconds I was on that bronc. Next thing I knew, I was flyin' through the air... only I wasn't no angel like you and Jenny here; didn't have no wings. And that's the story of my saddle bronc career.

There ain't never enough time, never enough...

Jack Twist

Swear I didn't know we were gonna get into this again... Hell, yes I did; red-lined it all the way, couldn't get here fast enough.

Jack Twist

You know friend, this is a god damn bitch of an unsatisfactory situation.

Jack Twist

Cassie Cartwright: I don't get you, Ennis del Mar.
Ennis del Mar: I'm sorry... Was probably no fun anyway, was I?
Cassie Cartwright: Ennis, girls don't fall in love with fun!

You may kiss the bride - and if you don't, I will.

Minister

Danny: Russ, do you remember what we said back when we first got into this business. We said we were gonna play the game...
Rusty: Like we had nothing to lose.
Danny: Well, I lost something... I lost someone. That's why I'm here.
Rusty: Okay, here's the problem. We're stealing two things. And when push comes to shove, and you can't have both, which are you gonna choose? And remember - Tess does not split 11 ways!

You're not getting this back. I consider it asshole tax.
