Yellowstone Season 3 Episode 8: "I Killed a Man Today" Quotes
Kayce: Wow. That is a nice horse.
John: Expensive taste runs in the blood.
Tate: That's the only way my dad will get it 'cause he's broke as hell.
Jamie: He never had that. He had their respect; he had their loyalty, but that? I don't even know what you call that.
Kayce: I don't either. Gratitude, I guess.
Kayce: That shooting was justified.
Jamie: My office won't question it.
Kayce: Well, you should probably question it. I'm just lettin' you know what you're gonna find out.
Jamie: I need some advice, brother, if I can still call you that.
Kayce: Till the day you die, you better never call me anything else.
Jamie: There's an arms race goin' on in this valley, and the weapon is land. Market Equities has a forest service lease on 12,000 acres to build a ski resort. They have a lease agreement with the FAA to build an international airport. The land they have earmarked are pastures 12-32.
Kayce: Of our land.
Jamie: Our land. There's a meeting with the governor, myself, the land commission, and the board of Market Equities next week. Now, the fact that this meeting is even set means that Montana wants it. I do have an offer from Market Equities at $10,000 per acre.
Kayce: There's 50,000 acres between those pastures.
Jamie: It's half a billion dollars. If we turn this offer down, then the attorneys for Market Equities are going to push the government to seek eminent domain. I will be recused for representing the state because it's our fucking land. There is public need. The jobs, the revenue.
Kayce: Is there any kind of a solution?
Jamie: We sell it to them. Right now, the ranch has enough money to keep up with taxes and operations for another year, maybe two. Then we're sellin' anyway.
Kayce: Have you explained all this to dad?
Jamie: Beth has poisoned me to him, and if you explain it to him-
Kayce: The last thing he wants to hear from me is numbers.
Jamie: It has to come from Beth.
John: That's it?
John: Anything else you feel like discussin'? If you're joining the family, can you please be the one person in it who fuckin' talks to me?
Rip: I love her, sir, and I'll always take care of her.
John: That's why I said yes.
Rip: You know why people don't come talk to you? Because they're scared they'll let you down. I know I am.
John: Well, if you're marrying Beth, you've already proved you're not scared of anything.
Mo: You're a brave woman.
Monica: [embraces him] Thank you for not missing.
Mo: I wouldn't do that to you.
People talk about makin' a difference, but they don't because they don't try. They don't risk. You risked -- everything. Today, you made a difference.Rainwater
Monica: You're protecting me from what? After all I've seen you do? But I can't be angry because that's why I lie to you.
Kayce: What did you like about?
Monica: What did YOU lie about?
Kayce: I didn't want to tell you because it's always the same story with me. I'm always in a position when I need to kill or be killed. I mean, hell, it's my job now. I don't wanna say anything because I don't want you to think I'm a bad man, even if I think it. I don't want you to think it because if you think it, it's true.
Monica: It's been your job since I met you, Kayce, and I believe in my heart that every man you've killed has made the world a safer place. That's how I feel about the man I killed. [sobs] I killed a man today.
John: That's not the glow of a blushing bride.
Beth: Oh, Dad. The blush was fucked out of me years ago.
John: Jesus. Baby, I love our man to man talks, but we need to set some goddamned boundaries here. I can't unhear that, honey.
Beth: Well, it was a metaphor. Sorta.
Rip: I'm gettin' married.
Lloyd: Yeah, I been wonderin' what's up with you lately.
Rip: I need a best man.
Lloyd: Kayce's her brother, fixin' to be yours. You should ask him.
Rip: Mmm. Probably so. But I ain't. I'm askin' you.
You know, you did something that no one does, Rip. You've outlived your past.Lloyd
