Judge Garth: "Those people are coming into a country that's totally strange to them. . . I want you to stay with them, help get them settled."
Trampas: "But, why me, to nurse maid a bunch of gophers."
Judge Garth: "Well, Frankly the Virginian was my first choice, but I couldn't spare him, and since I won't be leaving Shiloh--"
Trampas: "You mean you're not going on the round up either? . . . You must expect trouble. You think the other ranchers are going to start something?"
Judge Garth: "I don't think so, but maybe your being with them will help smooth the way. Oh, I know it's a big responsibility, but you can handle it."
Antek Wolski: "You belong with those people . . . To them you are a traitor, and for a traitor there is more hate than for anyone."
Trampas: "That's one way to look at it."
Antek Wolski: "Then you will leave us."
Trampas: "No, I can't help what they think. That's their lookout. Mine's to do my job."
Antek Wolski: "Each man has his own idea what his job is."
Trampas: "I know mine. Judge Garth told me to stay here until you were settled. Nobody can while there's still trouble. I'll only leave when it's done."
Polcia: "What have I done to make you angry with me? . . . Whenever I come near you, you make certain to leave. You keep avoiding me."
Trampas: "You better go."
Polcia: "Not until I know why you are angry with me."
Trampas: "I don't want to cause trouble, and I know how Jan feels about you."
Polcia: "Are you afraid of him?"
Trampas: "You're spoken for. . . All it needs is a preacher, and you're his wife."
Polcia: "But I never tell Jan I would marry him."
Trampas: . . . "Still, when a man feels you belong to him - "
Polcia: "I knew, I knew almost from the beginning."
Trampas: "That's the way it was for me. First day I saw you at the station then wanting afterwards to be with you, just to be with you. That night I kissed you for the first time and made you leave it was like tearing me apart."
Polcia: "That's how I felt."
Trampas: "First time in my life, I don't understand myself. I've never been more confused. I only know I feel empty when I'm not with you. I've never felt that way about anyone."
Polcia: "Is it so hard to say 'I love you'?
Trampas: "Only when you mean it. I love you."
Judge Garth: "Where are you going?"
Trampas: "As I said, Judge, my job's far from done."
Judge Garth: "To take on Milo and the whole bunch?"
Trampas: "The sheriff won't stop 'em."
Judge Garth: "He can't! Not until they make the first move."
Trampas: "By then it will be too late. . . You can't hold me, Judge! Not even if it means my job."
Judge Garth: "To protect Jan Wolski? Or is there another reason?"
Trampas: "Both I guess."
"We'd better be getting back to the ranch. I'll ride with you. I
know. When you lose someone it's as if--Might be some help to you if you try to
understand that in a way what happened, that her death has brought a measure of peace to
this valley. Oh, I know it'll be some time before either side knows or understands
the other, but that'll come because of this tragedy. Try to understand that."
