They don't work with you Kayce; they work for you. And these are questions you should be asking your father.


John: Who died?
Jamie: Not who, what.

Rainwater: Casino's mine. Your hotel won't need a liquor license. Once we annex the land, the state has no control over what we do.
Dan's Lackey: We didn't agree to annexing the land.
Rainwater: You don't need to. We own the land now.
Dan: That wasn't part of the deal.
Rainwater: That's exactly the deal, Dan. And for you, it's priceless. There will be no permits to build. The gaming license comes from the gaming commission as does your liquor license, your permit to operate, and your hotel license. When you sold me the land, Dan, you were sidestepping the oversights.

We need to find a less subtle means of expressing our displeasure. Did we bait that trap? I think it's time we spring it.


Maybe you haven't noticed, but there is a war going on in this valley. Today's the day you choose sides.


John: If he calls Dispatch for support, I expect you to give it to him. Did you hear me, Donny?!?
Don: I heard you, John! The whole goddamned valley heard you!

My fuckin' family, man.


Here's all the things I don't believe. I don't believe you're capable of swallowing your pride and contributing to this family. I don't believe our father will ever trust you again, which is why I don't believe you have a role here anymore.


Jamie: Hey! Beth. That is over half the ranch's cash. What are we going to do in November if cattle prices go down? How much money do you think this ranch makes in a year? After payroll, property taxes, and hay and countless other expenses, NOTHING. This ranch has not turned a profit in six years. And maybe you don't understand the impact of a few hundred dead cattle, but that's half a million dollars rotting in the field! You fucked us. Fucked. US. I want the ranch out of that trust, and I want it out today.
Beth: It doesn't work like that, Jamie.
Jamie: You make it work like that.
Beth: Fuck. Now I see. You think you're going to get him to trust you by making him not trust me? I wish you and your bird balls the best of luck.

Avery: Because of what we did, they beat him?
Jimmy: No, they beat him because of what I did.

When the misery is bad enough, tomorrow is rarely factored into decisions.


Malcolm: Think of us as allies. We'd be the perfect allies for each other, John because there's no part of your business that benefits ours and vice versa.
Teal: And when we fight, it's a zero-sum game. We will win at any cost.

John: All the angels are gone, son. There's only devils left. At least they admit it.

John: Who died?
Jamie: Not who, what.
