TANK MURDOCK
[upon seeing Philo's blood on his nose and lip after the confrontation with Lynn] Looks like you've had a go at it already. You sure that face won't hurt too much to fight?
PHILO BEDDOE
I ain't gonna be hitting you with my face.
TANK MURDOCK
[smiling kindly] That's funny. I like you. Don't worry kid, we're gonna get this over in a hurry and take care of you here. Where'd you hear of Tank Murdock before, kid?
PHILO BEDDOE
All around?
TANK MURDOCK
[smiling] Yeah?
PHILO BEDDOE
They say you're the best.
TANK MURDOCK
They do, huh? Well, let's get with it. [Tank beckons Philo to throw the first blow, which he does]

PHILO BEDDOE
Lynn!
CHOLLA
You Philo Beddoe?
PHILO BEDDOE
Do I know you?
CHOLLA
You're gonna.
PHILO BEDDOE
[notices Woody & Dallas] Yeah, last time I saw you two, you were going for a fast freight.
DALLAS
Last time we saw you, you were dirt-diving in an alfalfa patch.
WOODY
Philo Beddoe, your time has come.

PHILO BEDDOE
[upon learning about Schuyler and Lynn] What do you do? You hustle for him?
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
[hissing] You're just not too smart, are you? Why did you have to come? Why couldn't you quit like everybody else? You had to come chasing me and spoil it all!
PHILO BEDDOE
I guess I'm just not too smart, that's all. 'Cause up to now, I'm the only one dumb enough to want to take you further than your bed.
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
[slaps him hard] I HATE YOU! [she slaps and punches him repeatedly] I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU! [she collapses and cries, falling to the pavement... Philo glares at Schuyler, who has one hand in his jacket pocket, and walks off]

LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
[kissing a man outside the Zanzibar after the show] Like me? [he kisses her] Want me?
HARLAN
Let's go.
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
Harlan... I've got a friend. It's OK though. He won't mind. He might just want to come along.
HARLAN
[thinking for a moment] Let's go. [Lynn stops when she sees Philo standing in the shadows]
HARLAN
Is this your...
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
[cutting him off] No.
HARLAN
You want to talk to him?
PHILO BEDDOE
[to Harlan] The lady and I have a little business. I expect you'll be excusing us.
HARLAN
Maybe you ought to excuse yourself.
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
It's OK, Harlan. I'll just be a minute.
HARLAN
Are you sure?
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
Yes. [Harlan walks off]
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
[to Philo, coldly] It's your own goddamn fault. Who asked you to follow me?
PHILO BEDDOE
[stunned] I just thought...
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
[interrupting] You thought? If you'd thought, you would've taken some very broad hints! I've been trying to get rid of you practically ever since the first night we met!
PHILO BEDDOE
What about Taos?
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
What about it? [in disgust] I need it just like anybody else.
PHILO BEDDOE
You do this all the time?
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
[sardonically] Yeah, I do this all the time! And you and me had our time! So how come you don't know when to disappear?
PHILO BEDDOE
[she turns to leave... Philo grabs her arm] Come here.
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
Take your hands off me!
SCHYLER
[stepping from shadows] Lynn? Is everything all right?
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
Schuyler, this is the one from L.A... the one who's been following me. The big dumb one I told you about.
PHILO BEDDOE
Schuyler with the shotgun?
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
That was MY idea. I was hoping he'd scare you away.

MA BOGGS
[Ma has just learned of Philo and Orville's trip plans... turning to Philo] What're you gonna do with the baboon?
PHILO BEDDOE
Orangutan, Ma. Clyde's an orangutan.
MA BOGGS
[scoffs] Well, what's the difference?
PHILO BEDDOE
12 ribs. Just like you and me.
MA BOGGS
[persistent] What're you gonna do with him?
PHILO BEDDOE
He's coming with me. Come on, Clyde! [Clyde enters back of camper]
MA BOGGS
Well, when are you comin' back? [turns to Orville and repeats same question]
ORVILLE BOGGS
Whenever it's time, Ma!
MA BOGGS
[shruggs, exasperated] It just don't seem right to leave an old lady alone. And what about my goddamn license? [they drive off... to herself] This is... it's just... [walks off] Twelve ribs... I don't believe any of that shit!

LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
[Philo takes Lynn back to her trailer after the attempt on them by Schuyler... Philo parks the truck and prepares to get out... Lynn stops him] Philo... I'm scared.
PHILO BEDDOE
Don't worry... I'm not going to let anything happen to you.
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
[crying] That's not what I'm afraid of. I'm afraid for Schuyler... please don't hurt him!
PHILO BEDDOE
Well, that sonofabitch tried to blow my head off and he didn't even care that you were sitting next to me!
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
That's just it! He was trying to scare you! He doesn't even know how to shoot!
PHILO BEDDOE
I sure as hell don't like the way he's trying to find out!

PHILO BEDDOE
[Philo and Lynn are riding in his truck] If you don't like him, they why do you stay with him?
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
[talking while singing along with the radio] Because he promised to help me get the $7,000.
PHILO BEDDOE
For what?
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
For the down payment.
PHILO BEDDOE
What do you want to buy?
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
My own club back home in Denver. I'm going to call it the Lynn Halsey-Taylor Drinking Fountain. That's going to be the name of my group too, and I'll have talent night three days a week.
PHILO BEDDOE
How much of the $7,000 do you have already?
LYNN HALSEY-TAYLOR
He won't tell me.

PUTNAM
[Philo accidentally bumps into Putnam, seated at his table after getting the goodbye note from Lynn at The Palamino] Hey, why don't you watch what the hell you're doing?
PHILO BEDDOE
Why don't you shut your face, boy?
PUTNAM
[standing up] Oh, what have we got here? A real live, macho cowboy. [Philo turns to leave... Putnam grabs his arm] Don't turn your back on me! [Philo punches him in the face and triggers a free-for-all brawl]
PHILO BEDDOE
[punching Putnam] Somebody call the cops!
BARTENDER
They ARE the cops!
PHILO BEDDOE
[drops Putnam] Shit. [leaves]

PHILO BEDDOE
That's mighty nice of you.
ELMO
[shows Philo his Widow tattoo] You see that?
PHILO BEDDOE
An arm?
ELMO
No, that!
PHILO BEDDOE
A tattoo?
ELMO
He don't know what this means.
FRANK
[shows Orville his Widow tattoo] Do you see that?
ORVILLE BOGGS
[sneezes] Ah-choo! Oh, sorry.
PHILO BEDDOE
Two tattoos.
ELMO
Them's Black Widows.
FRANK
Did you know that more people die from black widows than rattlers every year?
ORVILLE BOGGS
Is that right?
FRANK
Yeah, that's right.
ORVILLE BOGGS
Well, listen, I sure do appreciate knowing that because most of the people I know just - puh - step on them and squish them
FRANK
I don't need this cheap shit.
PHILO BEDDOE
Orville, that's no way to thank you two guys just bought us a beer. Why don't you get the check and I'll go outside and thank them properly
ELMO
Oh, okay.

PHILO BEDDOE
Cut it out, Clyde.
PHILO BEDDOE
Ma, what'd do that for?
MA BOGGS
I've been trying to get your attention for five minutes. Did you see Orville?
PHILO BEDDOE
Yeah, I've seen him.
MA BOGGS
Well, Orville tell ya what?
PHILO BEDDOE
Yeah, I'm sorry, Ma, about you missing your driver's test again.
MA BOGGS
Oh, that ain't the "What" what I mean.
PHILO BEDDOE
You mean Clyde? Yeah, well, I'm sorry about that too, Ma. He won't do it again, I promise you.
MA BOGGS
Well, what are you gonna do about it?
PHILO BEDDOE
What, the crap or the Oreos?
MA BOGGS
About Clyde, goddamn it! I don't have no privacy in my own home no more.
PHILO BEDDOE
Well I confronted about it, Ma, and I guarantee it won't happen again.
MA BOGGS
[walks towards Clyde] No privacy in your own home. A whole goddamn bag of Oreos!
MA BOGGS
[disgusted] Ohh! Stop that, ya goddamn baboon. No respect! No privacy! No nothing!
PHILO BEDDOE
Bang! [Clyde drops down on the stump]
