The Movie Quote Game (Westerns Edition)

This month, we're focusing on quotes from Western films. We will list a quote from a famous Western and ask you to name it. Try to answer these questions on your own without resorting to Google searches. As always, please answer no more than three questions per day so others can play.  If you have a response other than the intended one, just be able to defend it.

1. "What are we going to do with this one, Frank?"

2. "I've heard that you're a low-down Yankee liar."

3. "Don't shove me Harv. I'm tired of being shoved."

4. "Everything happens to me. Now, I'm shot by a child."

5. "I don't like owing anybody any favors. You saved my life back at the hotel. That's all right, I've broken out of Yuma before."

6. " The old man sired two sons. One was no good... never was any good. Robbed a bank...a stagecoach. Then, when he came home and wanted to hide out, the old man wouldn't go for it."

7. "What do I get to eat when I get home in Lordsburg? Nothin' but frijole beans. That's all. Nothin' but beans, beans, beans!"

8. "I ain't gonna slap no leather with you, Doc Frail."

9. "There are two kinds of people in the world, my friend: Those with a rope around the neck, and the people who have the job of doing the cutting."

10. "This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend."

11. "The old man was right. Only the farmers won. We lost. We always lose."

12. "A game-legged old man and a drunk. That's all you got?"

13. "It's your great ideas that got us into this mess. I never want to hear another one of your great ideas. Ever!"

14. "Well, folks are all gonna miss you around here. All except a few wives, I suppose."

15. "Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean."


  1. 7. Stagecoach
    10. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
    11. The Magnificent Seven

    1. Well done, Jerome! That's a great start to this month's game.

    12. Rio Bravo

  3. 10 is The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

  4. 1 Once Upon a Time in the Wesrt
    6 Winchester 73
    9 The Good, The Bad & the Ugly

  11. Replies
    1. I think it's Clint Eastwood's best Western!

  12. No. 3 is driving me nuts. Whatever movie it's from, I KNOW I've seen it. That quote feels very familiar.

  13. Replies
    1. That is impressive! (One of my favorite Westerns, too.)

  14. With beachgal identifying the last three quotes, that wraps up this month's game. Thanks to everyone who played!
