Yeah, you want to know who you are? Your mother sold her body for drugs, and I killed her for it. That's who you are. That's where you come from. Look what you made of yourself. See, there was good in your mother at one time. There was good, and there was good in me, too. Thank God, those are the parts of us that he gave to you. I'd say I'm sorry, but if things hadn't happened the way they did, you'd be dead, you'd be in prison, or you'd be weldin' pipe fence with me. You got put on the road you belong on. You stay on it, son. John Dutton never shoulda told you.


I need to. I've never known who I was. I never felt like I was whole. I need to know you, or I will never know myself.


Walker: Why y'all dump 'em here?
Lloyd: Because no one lives within a hundred miles. It's a county with no people, no sheriff, and no 12 jurors of your peers.

Well, there shouldn't be things like that to discuss in the first place. But that's life. In case you haven't noticed, it is cruel and uncaring. You can't reason with evil, son. Evil wants what it wants, and it won't stop until it's won or you kill it. To kill it means to be meaner than evil. That's gonna be your last lesson, son, to learn to be meaner than evil and still love your family and enjoy a sunrise.


Mia: This place is losin' it's luster to me.
Laramie: I don't know. I think there might be a little luster left.

Walker: This fuckin' place. It's a magnet for everything that's wrong in this fuckin' world.
Kayce: Well, it drew you back. What's wrong with you?

John: That's it?
Rip: Hm?
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.

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.

You know, you did something that no one does, Rip. You've outlived your past.


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.


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.

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.
