What’s the matter with you?
Butch Cassidy
I can’t swim.
Sundance Kid
Are you crazy? The fall will probably kill you.
Butch Cassidy
Oh, shit…
Sundance Kid

Kid, there’s something I ought to tell you. I never shot anybody before.
Butch Cassidy
One hell of a time to tell me!

[before riding the bicycle]
Do you know what you’re doing?
Etta Place
Theoretically.
Butch Cassidy

[Butch throws his bicycle away]
The future’s all yours, you lousy bicycles.

[first lines]
What happened to the old bank? It was beautiful.
Butch Cassidy
People kept robbing it.
Guard
Small price to pay for beauty.
Butch Cassidy

Ready? OK, when we get outside and we get to the horses, whatever happens, just remember one thing… hey, wait a minute.
Butch Cassidy
What?
Sundance Kid
You didn’t see Lefors out there, did you?
Butch Cassidy
Lefors? No.
Sundance Kid
Oh, good. For a moment there I thought we were in trouble.
Butch Cassidy
[They both run out of the building, only to be met with gunfire from all sides from the Bolivian army]
¡Fuego!

[a volley of shots is heard]
¡Fuego!
Bolivian police commander
[another gun volley]
¡Fuego!
Bolivian police commander

How many are following us?
Butch Cassidy
All of ’em.
Sundance Kid
All of ’em? What’s the matter with those guys?
Butch Cassidy

[to Sundance] Boy, I got vision, and the rest of the world wears bifocals.
– Butch Cassidy

Is that what you call giving cover?
Butch Cassidy
Is that what you call running? If I knew you were going to stroll…
Sundance Kid

[Butch just rode with Etta on his bicycle]
Hey, what are you doin’?
Sundance Kid
Stealin’ your woman?
Butch Cassidy
[pause] Take her.
Sundance Kid
[sigh]
Take her.
Sundance Kid
Well, you’re a romantic bastard, I’ll give you that.
Butch Cassidy

Well, that ought to do it.
Butch Cassidy
[after blowing the train car to smithereens]
Think ya used enough dynamite there, Butch?
Sundance Kid

[to Sundance] Kid, the next time I say, “Let’s go someplace like Bolivia,” let’s GO someplace like Bolivia.
– Butch Cassidy

[repeated line]
Who are those guys?
Butch Cassidy

Well, I think I’ll get saddled up and go looking for a woman.
Sundance Kid
Good hunting.
Butch Cassidy
Shouldn’t take more than a couple of days. I’m not picky. As long as she’s smart, pretty, and sweet, and gentle, and tender, and refined, and lovely, and carefree…
Sundance Kid

[arriving in Bolivia]
You know, it could be worse. You get a lot more for your money in Bolivia, I checked on it.
Butch Cassidy
What could they have here that you could possibly want to buy?
Sundance Kid

 

[repeated line]
You just keep thinkin’, Butch. That’s what you’re good at.
Sundance Kid
