The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (film) Quotes

Humphrey Bogart as Dobbs

  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Hey, if there was gold in them mountains, how long would it have been there? Millions and millions of years, wouldn't it? What's our hurry? A couple of days, more or less, ain't gonna make a difference."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Why am I elected to go to the village? Why me instead of you and Curtin? Oh, don't think I don't see through that. You two've thrown in against me. The two days I'd be gone would give you plenty of time to discover where my goods are, wouldn't it?"
  • (Walter Huston) "If you feel along those lines, why don't you take your goods with you?"
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "And run the risk of having them taken from me by bandits?"
  • (Walter Huston) "If you was to run into bandits, you'd be out of luck anyway. They'd kill you for the shoes on your feet."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Oh, so that's it. Everything's clear now. You're hoping bandits will get me. That would save you a lot of trouble, wouldn't it? And your consciences wouldn't bother you none, neither."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Say, mister. Will you stake a fellow American to a meal?"
  • (American in Tampico in white suit) "Such impudence never came my way. Early this afternoon I gave you money -- while I was having my shoes polished I gave you MORE money -- now you put the bite on me again. Do me a favor, will ya? Go occasionally to somebody else; it's beginning to get tiresome."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Ah, excuse me, mister, I never knowed it was you. I never looked at your face; I just looked at your hands and the money you gave me. Beg pardon, mister, I promise I'll never put the bite on you again."
  • (American in Tampico in white suit) "This is the very last you get from me. Just to make sure you don't forget your promise, here's another peso."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Thanks, mister. Thanks."
  • (American in Tampico in white suit) "But from now on, you'll have to make your way through life without my assistance."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "You know, if I was a native, I'd get me a can of shoe polish and I'd be in business. They'd never let a gringo. You can sit on a bench 'til you're three-quarters starved -- you can beg from another gringo -- you can even commit burglary. You try shinin' shoes in the street, peddlin' lemonade out of a bucket, and your hash is settled. You'll never get another job from an American."
  • (Tim Holt) "Yeah, and the natives would hound and pester you to death."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Some town to be broke in."
  • (Tim Holt) "What town isn't?"
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "You know what I'm thinkin'. I'm thinkin' we ought to give up. Leave the whole outfit; everything behind and go back to civilization."
  • (Walter Huston) "What's that you say? Go back? Ha, ha. Well, tell my old grandmother. I've got two very elegant bedfellows who kick at the first drop of rain and hide in the closet when thunder rumbles. My, my, my, what great prospectors, two shoe clerks readin' a magazine about prospectin' for gold in the land of the midnight sun, south of the border, or west of the Rockies, ha, ha, ha --"
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Shut your trap. Shut up or I'll smash your head flat."
  • (Walter Huston) "Go ahead, go ahead, throw it. If you did, you'd never leave this wilderness alive. Without me, you two would die here more miserable than rats."
  • (Tim Holt) "Aw, leave him alone. Can't you see the old man's nuts?"
  • (Walter Huston) "Let me tell you something, my two fine bedfellows, you're so dumb, there's nothin' to compare ya with, you're dumber than the dumbest jackass. Look at each other, will ya? Did you ever see anything like yourself for bein' dumb specimens. You're so dumb, you don't even see the riches you're treadin' on with your own feet. Yeah, don't expect to find nuggets of molten gold. It's rich but not that rich. And here ain't the place to dig. It comes from someplace further up. Up there, up there's where we've got to go. UP THERE."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "You're sure he was trailin' you are ya?"
  • (Tim Holt) "Absolutely."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "How come?"
  • (Tim Holt) "Cuz there he is."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Conscience. What a thing. If you believe you got a conscience it'll pester you to death. But if you don't believe you got one, what could it do t'ya? Makes me sick, all this talking and fussing about nonsense."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Do you believe that stuff the old man was saying the other night at the Oso Negro about gold changin' a man's soul so's he ain't the same sort of man as he was before findin' it?"
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "I think I'll go to sleep and dream about piles of gold getting bigger and bigger and bigger."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Nobody puts one over on Fred C. Dobbs."
  • (Mexican Boy Selling Lottery Tickets) "Senor. Give me my money Senor. 10% I get for selling the winning ticket."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Get away from me, will you?"
  • (Mexican Boy Selling Lottery Tickets) "Aww, please Senor. Whoever draws the lucky number gives away the present to the seller."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "I tell you, I don't want any lottery ticket."
  • (Mexican Boy Selling Lottery Tickets) "If you don't, you have bad luck rest of your life."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Wait a minute, what did you first say?"
  • (Walter Huston) "He's trying to tell you, he sold you the winning ticket."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Hey, hey, wait a minute, this is what you mean?"
  • (Mexican Boy Selling Lottery Tickets) "Si, Senor."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "You say it's a winner?"
  • (Mexican Boy Selling Lottery Tickets) "Si, A 200 Pesos prize. Tres-Siete-Dos-Uno"
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Hey, that's my number. Sure enough. Oh. just look at that fat, rich printed number. That's the kind of "Sugar Papa likes" Oh. 200 Pesos. Welcome sweet little smackaroos. Here son, Here's a present for you with my blessing."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "Any more lip out of you and I'll haul off and let you have it. If you know what's good for you, you won't monkey around with Fred C. Dobbs."

Walter Huston as Howard

  • (Walter Huston) "Water's precious. Sometimes may be more precious than gold."
  • (Walter Huston) "I know what gold does to men's souls."
  • (Walter Huston) "Say, answer me this one, will you? Why is gold worth some twenty bucks an ounce?"
  • (Flophouse Bum) "I don't know. Because it's scarce."
  • (Walter Huston) "A thousand men, say, go searchin' for gold. After six months, one of them's lucky: one out of a thousand. His find represents not only his own labor, but that of nine hundred and ninety-nine others to boot. That's six thousand months, five hundred years, scramblin' over a mountain, goin' hungry and thirsty. An ounce of gold, mister, is worth what it is because of the human labor that went into the findin' and the gettin' of it."
  • (Flophouse Bum) "I never thought of it just like that."
  • (Walter Huston) "Well, there's no other explanation, mister. Gold itself ain't good for nothing except making jewelry with and gold teeth."
  • (Walter Huston) "Aah, gold's a devilish sort of thing, anyway. You start out, you tell yourself you'll be satisfied with 25,000 handsome smackers worth of it. So help me, Lord, and cross my heart. Fine resolution. After months of sweatin' yourself dizzy, and growin' short on provisions, and findin' nothin', you finally come down to 15,000, then ten. Finally, you say, "Lord, let me just find $5,000 worth and I'll never ask for anythin' more the rest of my life.""
  • (Flophouse Bum) "$5,000 is a lot of money."
  • (Walter Huston) "Yeah, here in this joint it seems like a lot. But I tell you, if you was to make a real strike, you couldn't be dragged away. Not even the threat of miserable death would keep you from trying to add 10,000 more. Ten, you'd want to get twenty-five; twenty-five you'd want to get fifty; fifty, a hundred. Like roulette. One more turn, you know. Always one more."
  • (Walter Huston) "Now here's where we're bound for, hereabouts. Don't show properly whether there's mountains, swamp, or desert. That shows the makers of the map themselves don't know for sure. Once on the ground, all we gotta do is open our eyes and look around. Yes, and blow our noses, too. Believe it or not, I knew a fellow once who could smell gold like a jackass can smell water."
  • (Walter Huston) "If I were you boys, I wouldn't talk or even think about women. T'aint good for your health."
  • (Walter Huston) "Without me, you two would die here, more miserable than rats."
  • (Walter Huston) "We've wounded this mountain. It's our duty to close her wounds. It's the least we can do to show our gratitude for all the wealth she's given us. If you guys don't want to help me, I'll do it alone."
  • (Tim Holt) "You talk about that mountain like it was a real woman."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "She's been a lot better to me than any woman I ever knew. Keep your shirt on, old-timer. Sure, I'll help ya."
  • (Walter Huston) "Well, goodbye Curtin."
  • (Tim Holt) "Goodbye, Howard."
  • (Walter Huston) "Good luck."
  • (Tim Holt) "Same to you."

Alfonso Bedoya as Gold Hat

  • (Alfonso Bedoya) "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges."

Bruce Bennett as Cody

  • (Bruce Bennett) "You know, you've got to hand it to the Mexicans when if comes to swift justice. Once the Federales get their mitts on a criminal, they know just what to do with him. They hand him a shovel, tell him where to dig, when he's dug deep enough, they tell him to put the shovel down, smoke a cigarette, and say his prayers. In another five minutes, he's being covered over with the dirt he dug out."

Tim Holt as Curtin

  • (Tim Holt) "Remember what you said back in Tampico about having to carry that old man on our backs?"
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "That was when I took him for an ordinary human being, not part goat."
  • (Tim Holt) "Wouldn't it be better, the way things are, to separate tomorrow, or even tonight?"
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "That would suit you fine, wouldn't it?"
  • (Tim Holt) "Why me more than you?"
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "So you could fall on me from behind, sneak up and shoot me in the back."
  • (Tim Holt) "All right, I'll go first."
  • (Humphrey Bogart) "And wait for me on the trail to ambush me?"
