Eddie Scrap-Iron Dupris: To make a fighter you gotta strip them down to bare wood: you can't just tell 'em to forget everything you know if you gotta make 'em forget even their bones... make 'em so tired they only listen to you, only hear your voice, only do what you say and nothing else... show 'em how to keep their balance and take it away from the other guy... how to generate momentum off their right toe and how to flex your knees when you fire a jab... how to fight backin' up so that the other guy doesn't want to come after you. Then you gotta show 'em all over again. Over and over and over... till they think they're born that way.

If there's magic in boxing, it's the magic of fighting battles beyond endurance, beyond cracked ribs, ruptured kidneys and detached retinas. It's the magic of risking everything for a dream that nobody sees but you.

Just remember, it's your old man that hauled Ben Wade to that station... when nobody else would.

Dan Evans

William Evans: Call them off!
Ben Wade: Why should I?
William Evans: Because you're not all bad.
Ben Wade: Yes, I am.

Just you left, Dan. Just you and your boy.

Ben Wade

Dan Evans: You're so sure that your crew's comin' to get you?
Byron McElroy: They're lost without him, like a pack of dogs without a master.
Ben Wade: Sure as God's vengeance, they're comin'.

Dan Evans: You say one more word, I'll cut you down right here.
Ben Wade: I like this side of you, Dan.

Alice Evans: He's a killer, Daniel.
Dan Evans: Then someone oughta have the decency to bring him to justice.

Ben Wade: So, boys - where we headed?
Byron McElroy: Taking you to the 3:10 to Yuma day after tomorrow.
Tucker: Should'nt've told him that.
Ben Wade: Relax, friend. Now if we get separated, I'll know where to meet up.
