From guiding Jimmy when he needed it most to taking Carter under his wing, here’s a look back at the best Lloyd Pierce moments on Yellowstone.

Thanks to cowboy, stuntman, and actor Forrie J. Smith, Lloyd became a Yellowstone fan favorite way back in Season 1. Smith’s role in the show was expanded as a result, and five seasons in his Lloyd Pierce is one of the most iconic characters from television’s top show.

Forrie’s real-life son, Forrest Smith, would also step in to play Young Lloyd, turning the popular cowboy into a family legacy. And throughout the series, Taylor Sheridan has given written some of his most timeless quotes for both versions of the character.

Paramount Network has gathered the ‘Best of Lloyd’ to help us Yellowstone fans celebrate those moments, meetings, and lines. So saddle up, buckle bunnies, and relive the life of Lloyd Pierce before we get into some of his all-time best quotes from the show below.

From helping Jimmy make money to bonding with Carter, here’s a look back at some of our favorite Lloyd moments on Yellowstone.
