The most memorable lines from the first two seasons of “Deadwood” are mostly too blue for a newspaper, so here a few choice pieces of dialogue that shouldn’t be too offensive.
Al to Doc Cochran: “Announcing your plans is a good way to hear God laugh.”
E.B. Farnum: “I am having a digestive crisis and must focus on suppressing its expression.”
Cy Tolliver to Woolcott: “A man has to work some dogs to learn how the world’s tail wags.”
Tom Nuttall to Charlie Utter: “I rather lick a bear’s ass than pay a fine to E.B. Farnum.”
Al speaking to a headless Indian about Johnny: “Dead, without a body, you still outstrip him for intelligence”
Al to Merrick: “The world ends when you’re dead. Until then you’ve got more pain in store. Stand it like a man and give some back.”
Jane to Trixie: “How does standing in my own puke prompt you to volunteer me to give a condolence call?”
