The Spikes Gang Quotes

Lee Marvin as Harry Spikes

God knows I could get a dozen better out of any saloon down the street. But you got some spirit, and you got some crawl. And where I come from, you harness a mule but you give a horse a chance to run. How would you boys like to throw in with me?"

  • (Lee Marvin) "Don't look so scared boys. Hell, look at me."
  • (Lee Marvin) "Vadalia -- Northfield -- Jonesboro -- Elysian Township -- Marysville -- Gallatin. Oh, I ducked a little late a few times, but I'm still standin'. The thing to do, my friends, is to admit to your fate with Christian resignation and live bravely until your appointed time."
