All right. Somebody want to go down there, go ahead. Just one thing... You walk down there, you're not going to walk back. You leave the bag and start up with the woman, they're gonna kill both of you.
-You're saying that so nobody will take the money and try.
They'll kill both of you. That's why I'm saying it. That's your wife down there. You going to cut her loose? Mendez, you going to save her? Billy Lee What's-your-last-name, you going to go down there? This one won't. That's his woman, but he won't do it. He doesn't care enough about his own woman, but maybe somebody else does. But maybe somebody else does. All right. You, lady. You worry about his wife
more than he does. Go on down there, cut her loose, start back up again, get shot in the back... or in front, if the Mexican by the trough does it. In the back or in the front, one way or the other.
-Just give me your knife. That's all I want from you.
You want a lot more than that from me, lady.
Moral grounds part 1 of 2:
We have to give them that money. I think you know that.
-Like you had to give that one water, huh?
People help each other.
-People kill each other, too. I've seen that. You're going to see some more.
If you want to say that it's my fault we're stuck up here, go ahead.
-No. What I want to know is why you helped.
Because he needed it, just like that woman needs it. It's not up to us to decide whether she deserves
to live or not.
-We only help, huh?
Do we have another choice?
Just let her die?
-That's up to Grimes.
You mean, you'd sacrifice her life for that money? Is that what you're saying?
-You go down there, and you ask that lady what she thinks of life. Ask her what life is worth to those Indians in San Carlos when they run out of meat.
Moral grounds part 2 of 2:
But she didn't take the money. Xxyyzzr did.
-She said, "Those dirty Indians eat dog," that she couldn't eat dog no matter how hungry she got. Ask her if she'd eat dog now.
I don't know what your gripe is against the world.
-Maybe you got a real one. Lady, up there in those mountains, there's a whole people who have lost everything. They don't have a place left to spread their blankets. They've been insulted, diseased, made drunk and foolish. Now, you call the men who did that Christians, and you trust them. I know them as white men, and I don't.
Russell, if nobody ever lifted a finger until people were deserving, the whole world would go to hell. We better deal with each other out of need and forget merit, because none of us have too much of that... not me, not you, not anybody.
-If it bothers you, why talk about it?
There's something else...the money.
-What about it? Maybe it's you who will have to take it up to San Carlos after, but that's easy, huh?
I thought you were keeping it for yourself.
-Think what you want to think. That's up to you.
He doesn't remember we left water behind. We have to tell him.
-You don't do anything.
What do you mean we don't do anything? Take a look at him. He's dying of thirst.
-What did you think would happen? You just thought you'd never see him again, so yesterday, it was all right, huh?
No. I should have said something yesterday. I'm saying it now.
You will learn something about white people... they stick together.
IMDb has many quotes as these two:
Jessie: And we got him a marble headstone. It had his name on it, and underneath, we had them put, "In the Fullness of His Years." Is that all right with you?
John Russell: I'll settle for that. I'm not on the slab.
Jessie: Well, what do you figure yours is going to read?
John Russell: "Shot Dead," probably.
Jessie: Don't people take to you, Mr. Russell?
John Russell: It only takes one who doesn't.
John Russell: The dead are dead. You ought to bury them.
Jessie: I'm sure that's good advice. Trouble is, Mr. Russell, I think you feel the same way about the living.
