Ringo: Wretched slugs, don't any of you have the guts to play for blood?

Doc: Why Johnny Ringo, you look like somebody just walked over your grave.

Vermillion: You really look awful.
Doc: Not half as bad as I feel.
Vermillion: Then why the hell're you doin' this? You ought to be in bed.
Doc: Wyatt Earp is my friend.
Vermillion: Hell, I got lot's of friends
Doc: I don't.

Doc: [Wyatt hands him a federal deputy badge but Doc waves it away] You know why I'm here. My hypocrisy only goes so far.

Doc: Down at the creek. Walking on water.

Ringo: Well, didn't think you had it in you. (smiles and gets ready) Shall we?
Doc: I'm your huckleberry. [As he walks out of the shadows] Why Johnny Ringo, you look like somebody just walked over your grave. Oh, I wasn't quite as sick as I made out.
Ringo: My fight's not with you Holliday.
Doc: I beg to differ. We started a fight we never got to finish. Play for blood, remember?
Ringo: I was only kidding about that.
Doc: I wasn't and this time it's legal. [Shows Ringo his badge]
Ringo: All right lunger, let's do it.
Doc: Say when. [Doc shoots Rings] Come on! Come on! Oh Johnny, you're no daisy. No daisy at all.
Wyatt: [Wyatt appears looking shocked] What happened!?
Doc: Poor soul, he was so high-strung. Afraid the strain was more than he could bear.

Wyatt: All I ever wanted was to live a normal life.
Doc: When will you wake up? You wouldn't know a normal life if it bit you in the ass.
Wyatt: That's great coming from you.
Doc: I played the cards I was dealt, Wyatt. Your problem is you're always trying to play someone else's. Allow me to tell you the truth and thus set you free: There is no happiness, Wyatt there is no normal life. There's only life, that's all. Just life. The rest is relative.
Wyatt: Then what do I do?
Doc: First you can grab that black-haired woman and make her your own.
Wyatt: All right. Then what?
Doc: Run. Take that girl and start running. Run and don't look back. All your life you been running and looking back and just barely existing and calling it getting by. This time run and don't look back and call it living. Live every second, live it right up to the hilt. Live, Wyatt, Live for me.
