Clara: Do you get cell service up here?

“The first Duttons to settle this land, fighting was all they knew. It’s how they got here. How they kept the land once they did. But today, today it seems like it’s a liability. Cowards rule the world these days, Rip. Coward’s rules with coward’s customs. To succeed today, all you gotta to know is how to blame and how to complain. I truly believe it’s the survival of the un-fittest these days.”

“I always thought Beth would calm down as she got older. But every year it seems like she gets wilder. I’ve never seen anything like it. What it must feel like to be that free.”

“I’ve got one child I miss. One child I pity. And one child I regret. But that girl, that child I envy.”

“We’ll ride up along Mount Chisholm, push ’em down into Lewis Creek, and hold ’em over night. If we’re lucky, we’ll get ’em all in one drive. No way to get a camp up there, so it’s empty stomachs and cold backs for a couple days. Yee haw.”

“Just feed her what we feed the horses.”

“I grew up with three brothers, you f*cking hippie!”
– Beth on Summer

Summer: What respect do I get?
Beth: You get exactly what you give.

Beth: How you feelin’?
Summer: Like I got hit by a truck. How ’bout you?
Beth: Like I got hit by a Prius.

“Do you know how stupid you both look? Do you think that you’re going to beat the other one into respecting your opinion? Hell, I don’t even know how you can respect yourself. Is this the kind of manners you want to teach that boy?”

 “I don’t know you, but I do know this: You’re never going to convince someone to think the way that you do by insulting them in their own house. You don’t like the food? Then don’t f*cking eat it. I don’t think I need to tell you about all the people that are starving around this planet tonight. So shut the f*ck up. Or leave.”
– Rip to Summer

“Let’s end this with a bit of dignity, instead of rolling around on the ground like a bunch of nine-year-olds.”

“You know that old saying, ‘Don’t go to bed angry?’ That’s never truer than my marriage.”
– Rip to John on Beth
