We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Ernest Burkhart: Whose land is this?
Henry Roan: My land.
William Hale: [to Ernest] Well, well, well. Our war hero has arrived.
William Hale: The land had oil on it. Black gold. Money flows freely here now.
Ernest Burkhart: I do love that money, sir.
William Hale: The Osage. They have the worst land possible. But they outsmarted everybody.
William Hale: [to Ernest] You made a good choice coming back here. The Osage are the finest, wealthiest, and most beautiful people on God’s earth. They outsmarted everybody. They have the say who gets the oil.
William Hale: Son, I got a question. You like women?
Ernest Burkhart: That’s my weakness.
William Hale: Well we mix these families together and that estate money flows the right direction. It’ll come to us.
Ernest Burkhart: He told me you was going with Matt Williams for a time.
Mollie Burkhart: You talk too much.
Ernest Burkhart: Oh, I don’t talk too much. Just thinking who I got to beat in this horse race, that’s all.

William Hale: This wealth should come to us. Their time is over. It’s just going to be another tragedy.
William Hale: We’ve got to take back control of our home.
