Ennis Del Mar: What are ya doin'?
Jack Twist: Aguirre came by again. Said my uncle didn't die after all. Says bring 'em down.
Ennis Del Mar: Bring 'em down? Why? It's the middle of August.
Jack Twist: Says there's a storm moving in from the Pacific, worse than this one.
Ennis Del Mar: Well that snow barely stuck an hour. Huh? 'Sides, that son-of-a-bitch, he's cheatin' us outta a whole month's pay. That ain't right.
Jack Twist: I can spare ya a loan bud, if you're short on cash. Give it to ya when we get to Signal.
Ennis Del Mar: I don't need your money, huh, you know I ain't in the poorhouse. Shit!

[with arms around Jack] C'mon now, you're sleepin' on your feet like a horse. My mama used to say that to me when I was little. And sing to me...

Ennis Del Mar

Alma Jr.: Daddy, you need more furniture.
Ennis Del Mar: Yeah, well... if you got nothin', you don't need nothin'.

Ennis Del Mar: Tent don't look right.
Jack Twist: Well, it ain't goin' nowhere. Let it be.
Ennis Del Mar: That harmonica don't sound quite right either.
Jack Twist: That's 'cause it got kinda flattened when that mare threw me.
Ennis Del Mar: Oh yeah? Thought you said that mare couldn't throw you.
Jack Twist: Well... she got lucky.

[to Jack] New model comin' in this week, remember? You're the best combine salesman we got. You're the only combine salesman, in fact...

Lureen Newsome

Do I look like I can afford a fuckin' ropin' horse?

Jack Twist

You're supposed to mind the sheep, not eat them.

Ennis Del Mar

Jack Twist: [as Lureen takes off her shirt] You are in a hurry.
Lureen Newsome: My dad's the hurry. He expects me home with the car by midnight.

Ray Charles: I hear like you see. Like that hummingbird outside the window, for instance.
Della Bea Robinson: Can't hear her.
Ray Charles: You have to listen.
Della Bea Robinson: [closes her eyes] Yes!
Ray Charles: Yeah. Yes, you can... Uh-oh. Did you hear that?
Della Bea Robinson: What?
Ray Charles: Her heart just skipped a beat.

Don't jive me, man.

Ray Charles

Rusty: Tell me this is not about her, or I am walking. I am walking off this job right now.
Danny: Who?
Rusty: Tess. Terry Benedict. Tell me this is not about screwing the guy who's screwing your wife.
Danny: Ex-wife.
Rusty: Tell me.
Danny: It's not about that. [pauses] It's not entirely about that.

Tess: You know what your problem is?
Danny: I only have one?
