Cowgirl Hotlist

As fans of Yellowstone wait for news of the season 4 return, what’s there to do but watch (and rewatch) the first three seasons and reminisce about your favorite scenes.

With its cast of powerful characters and their larger-than-life personalities, the quotes are seemingly endless! A single sentence from John Dutton (Kevin Costner) can stop you in your tracks, and there’s nothing like a one-liner from Beth Dutton (Kelly Reilly) to make your blood run cold. With a new season on the horizon, and two new spinoffs in the works, we can only expect this list to keep growing with more lines about family, power, and love.
