Charlie Sisters: Hey, this is the Sisters brothers! You don’t stand a chance!
Eli Sisters: Charlie?
Charlie Sisters: Huh?
Eli Sisters: We’ve had a good long run. We need to get out. We can open a store together.
Charlie Sisters: A store? This is nonsense!
Charlie Sisters: You walk out the front door and finish the job.
Charlie Sisters: Alright. You’re not going to like what comes next. Open your safe.
Mayfield: No. Never.
[to the bartender]
Charlie Sisters: We’re the Sisters brothers. S-I-S-T-E-R-S, like sisters.
Eli Sisters: We’re looking for a man named Warm.
Charlie Sisters: He stole something from our employer.
Eli Sisters: We have enough money to stop for good.
Charlie Sisters: Stop what?
Eli Sisters: Killing people.
Charlie Sisters: [laughing] Yeah, right.
Eli Sisters: Charlie, when you kill a man, you end up with his father or his friends on your tail. It usually ends badly.
Charlie Sisters: You do realize that our father was stark raving mad and we got his foul blood in our veins? That was his gift to us. That blood is why we’re good at what we do.
Eli Sisters: Our father drank, Charlie.
Charlie Sisters: Touché.
[writing a letter to Charlie and Eli]
Morris: Gentlemen, I have found him. I will try to hold him until your arrival.
[reading the rest of Morris’s letter]
Eli Sisters: “Make haste.”
Eli Sisters: [to Charlie] What does this Warm have that’s so interesting?
Hermann Kermit Warm: [to Morris] What’s a great challenge that all prospectors face, and how do I get the gold just beneath my feet? I told you I’m a chemist.
Charlie Sisters: [to Eli] Warm has a formula. You pour it into the river, it lights up all the gold.
[to Warm; regarding his finding gold formula]
Morris: Have you ever tested it?
Hermann Kermit Warm: You think it’s them?
Morris: Yes. We’re going to have to fight. Is your gun loaded?
Charlie Sisters: We finish this last job and then we part ways.
Eli Sisters: We’ve had a good long run, we’re still alive. It’s a chance to get out.
Eli Sisters: Eventually you’re going to get us killed.
Charlie Sisters: You’re forgetting something. We are the Sisters brothers. We’re good at what we do.
Charlie Sisters: You’re forgetting something. We are the Sisters brothers. Let me finish the job.
Charlie Sisters: Are you upset?
Eli Sisters: I’m leaving.
Charlie Sisters: What’s wrong with you?
Eli Sisters: You hit me in public, Charlie.
Charlie Sisters: After I slap you, you slap me back. We’re even. So go ahead, hit me. Hit me.
[suddenly Eli punches Charlie in the face really hard]
Charlie Sisters: Ow! You hit me! What is your goddamn problem?!
Charlie Sisters: Everything has changed so much.
Eli Sisters: Nothing’s changed. You’re my little brother, I love you.
