Kay Weston: One thing about this, the longer you last the less you care.
Matt Calder: He can run but he can't hide.
Matt Calder: It depends on whose ox gets gored.
Kay Weston: I suppose you never made a mistake. You're too perfect. You never made any.
Matt Calder: If a man doesn't know what he's doing or where he's going, the best thing for him to do is just back up and start all over again.
Kay Weston: If something's easy to get, people don't care about it. They don't value it. If it's hard to get, well, then you've got something.
Matt Calder: Now, what's all this? What kind of an act is this?
Kay Weston: I'm a performer. Didn't you know? Songs and dances.
Matt Calder: I think I know you pretty well.
Kay Weston: I think I know you, too.
Matt Calder: Hm? What am I like?
Kay Weston: Really not so bad. Not so tough and grim as you seem. I think you do a little acting yourself.
Matt Calder: The Indians call it the River of No Return. From here on, you'll find out why.
Kay Weston: [singing] I lost my love on the river, And for ever my heart will yearn, Gone, gone for ever, Down the River of No Return...
Kay Weston: [singing] There is a river, Called the River of No Return, Sometimes it's peaceful, And sometimes wild and free, Love is a traveler, On the River of No Return, Swept on for ever, To be lost in the stormy sea ..
Matt Calder: Next time you try anything like that, I'll forget you're a woman.
Kay Weston: [singing] I got the fever, Oooooo the fever, But not for gold in the ground, I want the title, To something vital, That I can throw my fences around...
Padre: I expected to find a small trading post, and instead: Sodom and Gomorrah. All because someone has found gold in this earth.
Matt Calder: You looking for it too, padre?
Padre: I came here as a missionary to the Indians. I think the white man will need me more.
Kay Weston: [singing] Down in the meadow, Corn stalks are high, Pumpkins are ripe and ready for pie.
Kay Weston: [singing] Down in the meadow, Snow softly gleams, Earth goes to sleep, And smiles in her dreams.
Matt Calder: Don't bring his troubles to me.
Kay Weston: I'll tell you how he didn't treat me. He didn't treat me like a tramp. He treated me like a woman. So he made a mistake. If you had lived like he has all of his life, on crumbs and bones, maybe you'd do a crazy thing if you had a chance to make a fortune. Maybe you'd do a foolish thing yourself.
Matt Calder: I wouldn't leave a kid to die - or a woman, even if she was a tramp.
Kay Weston: You don't have to hate me just because you hate him.
Kay Weston: You oughta take a dip in the falls yourself. Might wash some of the starch out of you or rust.
Ben: What are you chasin', Matt?
