    It took me a while to find it.....but I think it is the part of the movie that sticks with me the most.


    Josey: You be Ten Bears?
    Ten Bears: I am Ten Bears.
    Josey: (spits tobacco) I'm Josey Wales.
    Ten Bears: I have heard. You're the Gray Rider. You would not make peace with the Blue Coats. You may go in peace. Josey: I reckon not. Got nowhere to go.
    Ten Bears: Then you will die.
    Josey: I came here to die with you. Or live with you. Dying ain't so hard for men like you and me, it's living that's hard; when all you ever cared about has been butchered or raped. Governments don't live together, people live together. With governments you don't always get a fair word or a fair fight. Well I've come here to give you either one, or get either one from you. I came here like this so you'll know my word of death is true. And that my word of life is then true. The bear lives here, the wolf, the antelope, the Comanche. And so will we. Now, we'll only hunt what we need to live on, same as the Comanche does. And every spring when the grass turns green and the Comanche moves north, he can rest here in peace, butcher some of our cattle and jerk beef for the journey. The sign of the Comanche, that will be on our lodge. That's my word of life.
    Ten Bears: And your word of death?
    Josey: It's here in my pistols, there in your rifles. I'm here for either one.
    Ten Bears: These things you say we will have, we already have.
    Josey: That's true. I ain't promising you nothing extra. I'm just giving you life and you're giving me life. And I'm saying that men can live together without butchering one another.
    Ten Bears: It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double-tongues. There is iron in your word of death for all Comanche to see. And so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron, it must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life. (he takes his knife and cuts his hand. Josey does the same and they grasp each others hand.) So shall it be.

    My favorite Josey Wales quote is when he spits on the forehead of the dead guy they are not stopping to bury, and says, "Buzzards got to eat, too."

    I didn't surrender, but they took my horse and made him surrender. They have him pulling a wagon up in Kansas I bet.



    Lone Watie: I'm gettin' better at sneaking up on you. Only an Indian can do this.
    Josey Wales: That's what I figured.
    Lone Watie: You figured?
    Josey Wales: Only an Indian can do that.
    [Lone Watie hears a gun cock behind him; turns and sees Moonlight]
    Lone Watie: It's not right; this damn woman doing this to me. I used to have power. Now old age is creeping up on me.
    Josey Wales: More like old habits.

    CARPETBAGGER: Your young friend could use some help. This is it. One dollar a bottle. It works wonders on wounds.

    JOSEY: Works wonders on just about everything, huh?

    CARPETBAGGER: It can do most anything.

    JOSEY: (Spits wad of chewing tobacco onto the carpetbagger's jacket) How is it with stains?

    "So you say those horses belong to them there pilgrims."

    "Hell is coming to breakfast."


    If you like the lines, read "Gone to Texas" the book the movie is based on. It has almost every line in the script in it.

    "we got a lil somethin called a misourri boat ride..."
    (Gun-Related Q - what the hell was that, an H&H Express?)

    Hehehe.

    Rare that it is, I *LOVED* someone for once depicting a main character actually being reasonable and negotiating instead of using violence as a first resort, and that scene is very well done.

    One of my all time favorite flicks, yeah.
