Lonesome Dove Quotes
Woodrow Call: I guess it's our fault we should've shot sooner.
Gus McCrae: I don't want even to begin thinking Woodrow of all the things we should have done for this good man.
Woodrow Call: Gus.
Gus McCrae: What?
Woodrow Call: Why not go up to Montana? It's a cattleman's paradise to hear Jake tell it.
Gus McCrae: Sounds like a damn wilderness if you ask me. And we're a shade old to start fightin' Indians all over again, don't you think?
Woodrow Call: I mean it, Gus. Why not, go north with a herd?
Gus McCrae: I'll tell you what. You ride on up there, clear out the Iindians, build a little cabin, get a nice fire goin' in the fireplace and me and Jake will gather a herd and then we'll come on up.
Woodrow Call: I'd like to see the herd that you and Jake could gather. Herd o' whores, maybe.
Gus McCrae: Well you ain't no more a cattleman than I am, Call, and y'know it, too.
Woodrow Call: I wanna do it, Gus. I wanna see that country, before the bankers and lawyers all git it.
Clara Allen: [referring to Newt] Did you give that boy your name before you left Montana?
Woodrow Call: I gave him my horse.
Clara Allen: [scornfully] But not your name.
Woodrow Call: I value the horse more than my name.
Gus McCrae: Is that all you boys can think about; gettin' to Ogallala and spendin' your money on whores?
Jasper Fant: That's all right for you, Gus; you got Lorena with you. What about the rest of us?
Gus McCrae: What's good for me might not be good for the weak minded.
Newt: Gus, are you sure the Captain is my father?
Gus McCrae: Yep, he is.
Newt: He ain't never mentioned it.
Gus McCrae: Well, Woodrow ain't much of a mentioner.
