Our list of the best quotes from Amazon Prime Video mystery western drama TV series. Outer Range centers on Royal Abbott (Josh Brolin), a rancher fighting for his land and family, who discovers an unfathomable mystery at the edge of Wyoming’s wilderness. As the Abbotts are coping with the disappearance of daughter-in-law Rebecca, they are pushed further to the brink when the Tillersons make a play for their land. Then an untimely death in the community sets off a chain of events, and seemingly small-town, soil-bound troubles come to a head with the arrival of a mysterious black void in the Abbotts west pasture. Wild revelations unfold as Royal fights to protect his family, and through his eyes, we begin to see how time contains secrets held in the past and unsettling mysteries foreshadowed.

1. The Void'The world plays out how it's supposed to, so there's nothing to worry about.' - Autumn (Outer Range) Click To Tweet
Royal Abbott: You know anything about a Greek god called Chronos? He carried a sickle. He used it to cut a hole. A tear in the cosmos between heaven and Earth. To separate this world from the next. To separate the known from the unknown. The world has been waiting for something like this.
Cecilia Abbott: [telling Amy the story of how she and Royal met] Well, we met a very, very long time ago. Your grandpa grew up hard. Never knew his real father, or his real mother. One day, something happened that made him want to run away. Says he can’t remember, but my family found him. He walked right up to this ranch, just a kid, same as you. I feel like I was waiting for him my whole life.
Wayne Tillerson: [over phone, to Cecilia] Something is coming. Something is happening.

Royal Abbott: Something I can do for you?
Autumn: Oh, God. I sure hope so. I’m looking for the Abbott Ranch. Am I near it?
Royal Abbott: Yeah, you’re at it. It’s mine. Where you from, Boulder, Missoula?
Autumn: Boulder. What gave it away? Is it the hair?
Royal Abbott: No, it’s the everything.
Royal Abbott: Are you homeless?
Royal Abbott: What are you then?
Autumn: I’m a poet.
Royal Abbott: You’re a poet?
Autumn: Yeah, I’m a poet.
Royal Abbott: Well, we’re not in the market for poems.
Autumn: Oh, good. I’m not selling any.
Cecilia Abbott: [after Royal returns from the void] Okay, Royal, look, you tell us everything you think we need to know.
Royal Abbott: It’s gone. The body’s gone. That’s all there is to know.
Perry Abbott: Is it on our land?
Royal Abbott: It’s gone.
Cecilia Abbott: [referring to Autumn] Is she still out there?
Royal Abbott: No. I’ll find her.
Cecilia Abbott: You get her off this land as soon as possible.
Perry Abbott: But hold on, we need to know if she saw something. We need to find her, talk to her.
Royal Abbott: I’ll find her, okay? I’ll figure it out.
Cecilia Abbott: Yeah, you done better had, pal.
Cecilia Abbott: You think we’ll be forgiven for this?
Royal Abbott: Fixing to find out.
Luke Tillerson: Never been an Indian sheriff before.
Deputy Sheriff Joy: Or a gay one.
Luke Tillerson: Well, it’s about time.
3. The Time
Royal Abbott: First there was a storm of carbon and molten rock. And that beg at granite and soil. Then land shook, and cracked, and rose till it spiked the sky. And forests grew and died. And grew a hundred times again. And people grew and died. And grew a hundred times again. There were storms and seasons, and fences and blood. Wonder, and vengeance, and regret. And the land and the sky didn’t give two s**ts.
Royal Abbott: You know, I didn’t have ice cream until I was…
Amy Abbott: Ten years-old. Yeah, you’ve mentioned it a couple hundred times.
Royal Abbott: Sorry. That’s what old people do, isn’t it? Repeat themselves.
Amy Abbott: You’re not that old.
Royal Abbott: Right.
Deputy Sheriff Joy: [to herself] Trudy’s a damn girl’s name.
Wayne Tillerson: Make Royal an offer for his west pasture.
Luke Tillerson: An offer? The assessor’s going to rule in our favor. He’s already bought and paid for, why would we make him an offer?
Wayne Tillerson: Offer him a million for it.
Luke Tillerson: A million dollars?
Luke Tillerson: The hearing’s next month.
Wayne Tillerson: Hearings! Hearings. You know what animals got the best hearings? Bats. Bats and moths. They bounce sound off of walls and each other. Echolocation. That’s also how they mate. Ultrasonic sexual communication. They are remarkable creatures. Remarkable.
Deputy Sheriff Joy: Gate back there was pretty busted. That the one Luke drove through?
Royal Abbott: Yeah, I ought to send him a bill.
Deputy Sheriff Joy: Maybe wait until after the funeral.
Deputy Sheriff Joy: We got twelve different calls from folks saying they saw that mountain right there disappear in plain sight.
Royal Abbott: No, you serious?
Deputy Sheriff Joy: Crazy, right?
Royal Abbott: Yeah.
Deputy Sheriff Joy: Reminded me of when there were all those folks talking about a flying saucer up in Montana, you remember that?
Royal Abbott: No.
Perry Abbott: Is there anything you need from us?
Autumn: How about a picture of your wife?
Perry Abbott: What?
Autumn: Well, I’ve been all around this area. Maybe I’ve seen her. Stranger things happen.
Perry Abbott: [referring to Royal] Why the hell did he put the body up there in the first place?
Cecilia Abbott: He said he didn’t.
Perry Abbott: Then how’d it get there?
5. The Soil'It's hard to really know anyone else, isn't it? No matter how long you've known them. It's hard enough to know yourself.' - Autumn (Outer Range) Click To Tweet
Trevor Tillerson: [as Royal hallucinates] Time’s a m**herf***er.
Perry Abbott: The other night, with Joy, I should’ve figured something different to tell her. I f***ed up. Sorry.
Rhett Abbott: Well, I f***ed up too, didn’t I?
Perry Abbott: How’s that?
Rhett Abbott: I was dumb enough to help you in the first place.
Perry Abbott: Hey. There’s no way I’m going to let you go down for this.
Autumn: [after Cecilia finds Autumn in her house] I was just looking for something of mine. Necklace. Your husband has it. He took it from me yesterday. See, we played a hand of…
Cecilia Abbott: Poker. I heard. Well, it’s not your necklace anymore though, is it? You lost. He won.
Autumn: That’s such a binary way to look at it. There’s more to everything than just winning or losing.
Cecilia Abbott: Not poker.
Cecilia Abbott: Whatever you’re doing here, whatever you’re trying to get done, I’m not going to let it happen. Do you understand what I’m saying to you?
Autumn: Something’s already happening.
Autumn: Give me my necklace back.
Royal Abbott: I can’t do that. I put it in a vise and crushed it. Yeah, you want to know what happened? Nothing. How about that? Your rock was just a f***ing rock.
Autumn: I don’t believe that.
Royal Abbott: You think you’re getting closer to something, but you’re not.
Autumn: The rock had a mineral in it, and there’s more of it on your land. I think it and the hole are connected, and I think both are connected to time. I think maybe both are time somehow.
Autumn: Time’s a dimension, right? Like, length, width, height. We can see those. We can touch them. So why not time?
Royal Abbott: I don’t care!
Royal Abbott: I told you my family can’t know about any of this. I told you that.
Autumn: You traveled through time. It’s amazing! Why can’t you tell them?
Royal Abbott: Because they won’t understand!
Autumn: Why won’t they understand?
Royal Abbott: You stay away from my family, or I will kill you!
Autumn: I’m going to do wondrous things. Wondrous things.
Royal Abbott: No!
Autumn: I’m going to help people, Royal.
[Royal then rides off, leaving her in the woods]
7. The Unknown'You don't have to know what something is to believe in it.' - Billy Tillerson (Outer Range) Click To Tweet
Young Perry: [flashback, after young Perry beats up young Luke] What’s that feeling?
Royal Abbott: What? Getting angry?
Young Perry: I don’t know what to call it. Is it me?
Royal Abbott: No. It’s…
Young Perry: What?
Royal Abbott: I don’t know what it is. But it’s not just you. When I was a kid, I… It doesn’t matter.
Deputy Sheriff Joy: And you carried Trevor’s body up the mountain all by yourself? No one in your family knew?
Perry Abbott: No.
Deputy Sheriff Joy: Do you know where Rebecca is? You know what happened to her?
Perry Abbott: No. I don’t believe she’s gone though.
Deputy Sheriff Joy: What do you mean? What do you mean by that, Perry?
Perry Abbott: Maybe nothing is ever gone.
Amy Abbott: [after Perry’s freed on bail] Are you going to jail?
Perry Abbott: I don’t know.
Amy Abbott: Were you drunk when you, when it happened?
Perry Abbott: I was sober enough to know better. He said something about Mom.
Amy Abbott: What?
Perry Abbott: That doesn’t matter. I should have walked away. And I regret, with every part of me, that I didn’t.
Amy Abbott: Do you know what happened to Mom?
Perry Abbott: No. I swear to you.
8. The West
Royal Abbott: People have told me that grace is a given thing. That if you seek it, you’ll find it. When I was a kid, I’d go to church, and hear the pastor preach the word. And he’d make me feel everything in my heart. And everything in the world around me would have a little more meaning. The world was a bright place. It worked on me. God was everything good. Then, when I was eight years-old, I shot my father. When I watched that stray buckshot go into his chest and blow all his insides out his back, the world went black. Like it had ended altogether. It hit me that God is everything. Everything good, and everything bad.
Rhett Abbott: You think you’re going to stay here your whole life?
Amy Abbott: Aren’t you?
Luke Tillerson: Does Dad know?
Billy Tillerson: Know what?
Luke Tillerson: About the hole.
Billy Tillerson: Well, I think so.
Luke Tillerson: Does he know what it’s worth?
Billy Tillerson: What do you mean?
Luke Tillerson: I mean, whatever it is, it came out of the goddamn earth, and it’s worth something. More than we even know probably. I mean, there is a mother lode of money just waiting for us. A whole new goddamn frontier ready to be got. And we could be first.
Billy Tillerson: The hole’s gone.
Luke Tillerson: What do you mean it’s gone?
Billy Tillerson: It’s gone. Disappeared. Maybe it’s hiding somewhere else, I don’t know.
