We’re written a lot about real-life cowboy Forrie J. Smith here on Outsider, and for good reason. His Yellowstone stand-out, Lloyd Pierce, is the diamond in the rough of Paramount’s smash hit, Yellowstone. Three seasons in, thankfully, the world is catching on, and Lloyd has risen to prominence alongside the show as it skyrocketed from a well-received but relatively obscure streaming western to television’s #1 cable drama. And while the wait for Season 4 eggs us on, tidbits like this timeless quote from Lloyd keep us going.
“She’s old enough to vote and buy bullets…”
Impossible not to love this man, right? Sure, the bunkers of Yellowstone are a rough, morally-ambiguous group. But they’re our rough, morally-ambiguous group.
Fans current with the show will know that the line comes courtesy of the “super fascinating” relationship between Lloyd and his “bunkhouse beauty,” Laramie. In short: things have gotten complicated between these two,but this only gives us all that much more reason for them to make up in Season 4. Right?
To this end, Paramount recently posted a “Bunkhouse Romance” montage that features the golden, unorthodox lovin’ between these two westerners. “I don’t think Laramie sees age,” the character’s actress Hassie Harrison says. “I think she definitely sees his soul,” she continues of Laramie’s relationship with Lloyd. “She kind of clocks that he’s the alpha in the room, and that’s who she wants to be saddled up to.”
As for Lloyd, Forrie J. Smith says “she’s such a strong woman. My heart got on my sleeve a little bit.” We’re right there with you, Lloyd. Unorthodox characters, relationships, and situations like this are, after all, what make Yellowstone – Yellowstone.
Yellowstone’s Best Quotes: Ranch Hand Lloyd
Through Smith, the show’s writers are able to craft some of the absolute best dialogue of the entire show, as well. Saying Lloyd has some of “Yellowstone‘s” best quotes also feels like the understatement of the century. Below, we’ve gathered a few other gems from the ranch hand, just to name a few:
- “Pray like hell, and hold on.”
- “Rough business becoming a man, ain’t it? Beats the alternative, though…”
- “You know, you did something that no one does, Rip. You’ve outlived your past.”
