"Things are rough all over."
"That was the only time I can think of when I saw him without that defeated, suspicious look in his eyes."
"I had taken the long way around, but I was finally home. To stay."
"You look out for yourself and nothing can hurt you."
"You don't stop living because you lose someone."

Oh!! What a difficult decision to pick only a few quotes.... Well, here's a few:

"I'm sorry, I didn't know you had this problem of yelling in my face."
"Gallant- they remind me of Dally."
"Stay gold," of course I couldn't leave that one out!!!
"Southern gentlemen had nothing on Johnny Cade."

Arr, it's too late for my mind to function enough to figure out the others :angry: ... I'll be back.

"Hate to tell you this buddy, but you have to wear clothes to work. There's a law or something."

Pretty much everything Two-Bit said.

"Southern Gentleman had nothing on Johnny Cade."

"Guess we're different, huh?"
"Shoot, yeah. Maybe they are."
"Maybe you're right."
