We all know those cowboys or cowgirls who speak predominantly in Lonesome Dove or Tombstone. They know every line and every word. It’s for good reason, though. Classic western movies, arguably, have the best one-liners and quotes. We pulled some of our favorite quotes from some of the best classics!

  1. “Slap some bacon on a biscuit and let’s go! We’re burnin’ daylight!” – John Wayne as Will Andersen in The Cowboys.
  2. “You’re a daisy if you do.” – Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday in Tombstone
  3. “Don’t say it’s a fine morning or I’ll shoot ya!” – John Wayne as George Washington McLintock in McLintock!
  4. “You gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?” – Clint Eastwood as Josey Wales in Outlaw Josey Wales
  5. “I hate rude behavior in a man. I won’t tolerate it.” – Tommy Lee Jones as Captain Woodrow F. Call in Lonesome Dove
  6. “It ain’t dying I’m talking about, it’s living.” – Robert Duvall as Captain Augustus “Gus” McCrae in Lonesome Dove
  7. “You’re short on ears and long on mouth!” – John Wayne as Jacob McCandles in Big Jake
  8. “Can’t you see this horse loves me?” – Kevin Kline as Paden in Silverado
  9. “I have a rendezvous with destiny” – Emilio Estevez as Billy the Kid in Young Guns
  10. “I know enough about men to steer clear of them.” – Katharine Hepburn as Eula Goodnight in Rooster Cogburn
