by Caroline Bynum

Beth Dutton certainly keeps Yellowstone viewers on their toes with her sassy one-liners and foul-mouthed insults. After three seasons and the start of a fourth, it is clear Beth has a sweet spot, shown through her fierce devotion to her father, John Dutton, and her love for Rip. Though that warm nature is deeply hidden by her tough-as-nails nature that can knock any cowboy’s confidence down a few notches.

While they are all great, Beth’s killer metaphor insult to Roarke, seen in season 3 episode 5, might be the best. In the tense scene between the two, Roarke undoubtedly underestimates the true caliber of the fierce lady he is dealing with.

Of course, limiting this list to ten quotes doesn’t do Beth Dutton justice. Whether she is standing up for John, hurling insults at Jamie, or uniquely showing her love for Rip, Beth’s way with words is impeccable. Therefore, here are more of her killer one-liners:
